older than you are

As middle aged women, we are always trying to improve ourselves, look younger, and feel better about ourselves. While in the process though, there are some mistakes we can be making which will actually make us look older.

Here are the top 5 things that make you look older and why:

  1. Dying Your Hair All One Color

Having your hair all one color may be causing your face to look a bit dull. Having a stylish dimension to your hair or brightening up your face frame with layers will warm up your complexion and give you a more youthful look.

  1. Not Exfoliating Regularly

Exfoliation is a way to not only prevent bacteria from clogging your pores, but also shedding old, dead, layers of skin. When these layers shed, new fresh cells are created and give your face a healthy glow. Also, if you use a chemical peel, it can reduce wrinkles with consistent use.

  1. Wearing Your Hair Too Long

Wearing your hair long with no layers is something that should be left in your childhood and your college days. Wearing long, straight hair as you mature may cause you look older. It is better to choose a cut with layers to create volume and keep your face young looking.

  1. Tanning

We all love the tan glow we get from soaking up the sun, but it is a big mistake made when wanting to look younger. That tan may make us feel young and beautiful at first, but tanning is the quickest way to speed up aging. It damages your skin and can even give you wrinkles if you don’t use sunscreen and some skin protectants everyday.

  1. Ignoring Your Hands and Chest

While you may remember to wear tinted moisturizer with SPFon your face everyday or lather your body while you’re on the beach, you’re neglecting two parts of your body that are in the contact with the sun too. Forgetting to put lotion on those two parts can cause more wrinkles and brown spots which are a dead giveaway to your age even if your face looks youthful.
