HOW TO LOOK 10 YEARS YOUNGER (AND STAY THAT WAY)

If you want to look forever young but you don’t want to fork out for expensive cosmetic procedures, keep scrolling and read on what our Italian experts at Class & Class shared as secrets for a younger look.

When we get to a certain age we all want to look and feel younger. 10 years younger? Certainly the first thought may be to expensive treatments, but there are other effective alternatives that can make some magic too! Get creative ✂️

EAT WELL

A good diet is the most cost effective way to look and feel younger. Choose food high in antioxidants, like artichokes, berries (strawberries, blueberries…), spinach and even dark chocolate to complement your diet and reduce your intake on fatty and sugary food. Fruit rich in vitamin C and folic acid, like citrus, help decrease cholesterol and give you a more radiant look.

A glass of wine per meal is considered beneficial, but excessive alcohol intake dehydrates and has damaging effects on the skin, over the long term.

KEEP FIT

You don’t necessarily need to sign up to a gym, though that helps, but some regular physical activities help the body to stay in shape and help the mind to stay alert too.

A one hour walk per day or a ten minutes run go a long way and cost you nothing! Follow this no brainer and you’ll look and feel 10 years younger in no time.

WISE WARDROBE CHOICES

Choosing the right clothes’ colours that complement your complexion and slim you down are super easy tricks to look younger. Just spend a bit more time in front of the mirror to figure out which colours make you look dull and which enhance your glow.

Avoid oversized clothes, as they may hide some sins but instantly add years to your age.

 

DRINK WATER

Drinking water keeps you hydrated and helps the skin stay younger for longer. Don’t cut it down just because it increases your visits to the toilet.

EMBRACE YOUR GRAYS

Don’t need to feel shocked. Yes, vibrant grey hair looks beautiful and younger than hair treated with box colour and with one month roots regrowth…Let’s see. How many of our over-40s readers have root regrowth longer than 4 weeks?

Buy blue shampoo to remove yellowing from your grey hair and stop using box colour.

LIGHTEN UP YOUR HAIR

Going two or three shades lighter than your natural colour with permanent colour or highlights is a great option to hide greys and thinning, two factors that give away your age straight away. What are you waiting for? Your hair stylist will be able to recommend you the best course of action for you.

GET A GREAT HAIRCUT

A well executed haircut has a better impact on your look than a facelift. Choose a cut that frames your face. Go for some softer styles, like  a soft fringe, a wavy bob or a shoulder length haircut with some layers.

Remember: a shapeless haircut makes you look older, while bangs are youthful and help hiding wrinkles.
