When it comes to aging gracefully you want to do it while having fun and staying healthy. For many people, it seems that you are only as old as you feel, or act. By living a healthy life you can work to ensure you at least feel younger.
While beauty and fashion can factor into aging more gracefully, and the age other people perceive you as, you also want to make sure you are eating healthy and getting enough physical activity crammed into each day. The more active you stay as you age the more fit your body will be, and the more fun you’ll be able to have. It also helps to cut out, or at least cut back on, bad habits like smoking and drinking (both of which can work to age you prematurely).
Don’t Be Afraid To Get Some Work Done
Not everyone has the right genes to age gracefully. Sometimes it’s simply in your DNA that you are going to be a little wider, have a few more wrinkles, or have a nose that you never really like. When this is the case, why not get a little work done? You don’t have to accept things like crow’s feet as just the normal parts if aging, you can get rid of them.
You can also help fight some of the signs of aging by having a good beauty routine that you follow. Washing your face and even moisturizing does good things for your skin, helping it stay moist and sealing in the elasticity it needs to stay wrinkle free. You can also invest in serums and pills that help fight age’s effects on your skin, and your face.
Don’t accept any makeup rules for women of a certain age. Have fun with your makeup. The only thing you should be worried about is finding the correct shade for your skin tone and your season!
You Don’t Have To Dress Your Age
With TV shows like “What Not To Wear” being off the air for a few years now, you don’t have to worry as much about someone on television telling you that you dress in clothing made for younger generations. You can still look great, and even professional, without shopping in sections that have clothing your grandma wears. There are things more important to your clothing choices than what age of person they were originally intended for.
If you want to age gracefully through your wardrobe you want to start off with purchasing clothing that fits you. Something too baggy will make you look like you are bigger than you really are under there, and clothing that is too tight won’t fly at the office. Always try stuff on.
Consider colors as well. Look at how certain clothing colors go with both your hair color and your skin tone, and how they look on you in general.
