7 Beauty Tips to Look Younger Today

Why should you pamper yourself? Because it boosts self-esteem, relieves stress and makes you look younger! Long-term beauty regime strategies like exercising, eating healthy, getting appropriate amounts of sleep and investing in a great facial skincare routine will keep you looking younger and feeling healthy every day. However, there are also quick and easy things you can do right now that will make you appear younger instantly!

1. Camouflage dark under-eye circles with orange eye-shadow or lipstick

If you use concealer and your under-eye area still looks grey after application, brushing some orange eye-shadow or lipstick under the eyes before applying the concealer will fix the problem.  The reason orange works is because specific complement (opposite) colours work together to cancel certain unwanted colours. Orange neutralizes dark circles and blueish undertones as well. Camouflaging dark under-eye circles can instantly make you look years younger and emphasize your eyes, which leads to tip # 2.

  1. Wear a light coat of mascara. 

Prominent lashes will make your eyes look more open, bigger, and younger. Think of babies’ eyes. Be sure to only use a light coat of mascara, otherwise you’ll risk ending up on the other side of the spectrum and aging the eyes with heavy makeup. Keep the mascara brush mostly at the tips of the lashes and with a few light strokes. If the lashes look clumpy remove the mascara with an eye makeup cleanser and lighten the application.

A supplemental approach to longer lashes is Girafflash. It is an all-natural serum that grows lashes thicker and longer starting in a few days and can also be used as an anti-aging under eye serum. (See the end of this article for more information)

  1. Stand and sit straight

Experts claim that standing up straight and pulling your shoulders back will make you appear slimmer, highly self-confident, and youthful. It also benefits back pain and prevents curving of the spine in the later years. Stand up as straight as you can when walking or sitting. A bonus of practicing straight posture is that it makes it easier for your body to digest food.

  1.  Exfoliate: Gently scrub your face with this natural concoction 

Exfoliating your skin makes it look radiant because it reveals fresh skin by removing dead skin cells. Use this simple, homemade natural scrub:1 teaspoon brown sugar and olive oil mixed together.  Use a gentle, circular, and light motion to cleanse skin. Moisturize only if there are any dry areas.

  1. H2O is a girl’s best friend. 

Being hydrated gives you energy by removing toxins from your body making you feel better. It also plumps the skin, which results in looking younger. Wake up at least one hour earlier than scheduled and drink at least 16 ounces of room temperature (or warm) water with a dash of fresh lemon. Do not eat anything for at least 30 minutes. Lemon and water cleans out toxins and is an energy booster. Lemons have vitamin C, which is beneficial for younger looking skin. Waking up at least 1 hour than scheduled will allow plenty of time to use the bathroom before leaving the house for work or errands. However, if you have easy access to a restroom, then you don’t need to wake up earlier than scheduled.

  1. Eye Drops 

Refresh eyes from a bad night’s rest (or allergies) by using eye drops in the morning. In conjunction with tip #1, your eyes will look brighter, clearer, and healthier. Taking care of your eye area can erase up to a decade off your perceived age.

  1. Lip brush

To have smoother and plumper looking lips, remove dead skin cells  by brushing your lips with a dry toothbrush Be sure to follow up with a great lip balm. Smooth, shiny lips will make you look years younger.
