How to look as young as you feel
You can look and feel good, whatever age you are. Reaching 50 years old should be a celebration and a time to change your look. This is not a time to give in to ‘old age’, it is a new era of discovery and adventure.
“Age is no barrier. It’s a limitation you put on your mind…” Jackie Joyner-Kersee
Today, people live longer and many appear younger than before, thanks to science and other healthy living practices. So, should you completely switch your wardrobe to fit your age? Dressing as you did before may not be the best way to accentuate your best qualities, but celebrate who you have become by making a few fresh changes. Just like red wine, you only get better the older you become.
Here are some ideas you can use to change your look for your age
Exercise along with good nutrition is the basis of living a healthy lifestyle. If you don’t have a regular exercise routine going, it may be time to start. It’s never too late to make good choices, make sure to include a little cardiovascular as well as strength exercises.
By implementing a healthy lifestyle you will definitely see results in the way you look and feel. Besides improving circulation amongst others benefits, you will also be helping to reduce stress. Even losing a few kilograms can help you look younger. Begin the process of change on a solid foundation and everything else is just icing on the top.
Every year there are thousands of people who get dental procedures to help them look and feel good. Having the confidence to smile, means a lot to many people. Due to smoking or drinking lots of coffee, amongst other things, teeth can become discoloured. Whitening the teeth can actually make you look younger. Just make sure to have it done by a professional or use more natural products.
I don’t think anybody appreciates how much your eyebrows accentuate your face. As you reach 50, you may find that you have fewer eyebrows than you used to. Many tend to over pluck, eventually leaving almost nothing behind. A simple trick is to apply castor oil to the eyebrow area every night. You can also highlight the area using an eyebrow brush and some make-up, this helps to make the eyebrows appear thicker.
You should already have a facial routine in place, with a good moisturiser, which should be helping to keep those wrinkles and blemishes down to a minimum. Another technique you can use, to give yourself a healthy glow, is to use a bronzer. The trick is to use a bronzer very sparingly and to choose one that is two shades darker than your own skin tone. There are many brands out there to choose from, you will have to find one that works for you.

Keep in Style – Clothes
Here are some tips to keep in style at 50:
- Try to go for more neutral colours, black can be a bit harsh on the complexion if you are older.
- Undergarments, never underestimate their power to make you feel fabulous. The correct fitting bra is important to provide the correct support.
- Have some classic clothing items, always great to mix and match. An elegant white shirt or two or three, some neutral colour t-shirts, black dress, a pair of black pants and of course you are never too old for a great pair of denim jeans.
- Don’t be afraid to add in a pop of colour here and there.
