1) Apply a broad spectrum sunscreen every day of the year. Failure to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays can result in premature aging and can increase your chance of developing skin cancer. The majority of men and women apply sunscreen if they are going to the beach or if they plan to be in the sun for an extended period of time. However, the majority of sun exposure occurs during our everyday activities like driving and walking the dog. By following the tips below, you can help your skin look younger:

  • Choose a broad spectrum sunscreen that blocks BOTH UVA and UVB rays
  • Apply sunscreen on all exposed areas of your skin and reapply every 2 hours
  • Select a sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or greater

 

2) Give your thinning hair a fuller appearance. Thinning hair is another key sign of aging. While you cannot control the number of active hair follicles that you have, here are some steps that you can take to give your thinning hair a boost:

  • Use a volumizing shampoo and conditioner
  • Help prevent breakage by choosing a cool setting on your hairdryer
  • Invest in a large round brush to add volume to your hair
  • Avoid over-washing and over-styling

 

3) Apply foundation properly. When properly applied, foundation can enhance your skin tone and mask areas of discoloration. The result is a more youthful appearance. Unfortunately, many women make the mistake of applying too much foundation, which can actually draw attention to the fine lines that you are trying to hide. Below are some tips to follow to ensure that your foundation is properly applied:

  • Apply a moisturizer and primer before applying your foundation
  • Refrain from choosing a foundation that is too dark or too light
  • Apply foundation by gently tapping it into your skin with a clean sponge

4) Whiten your teeth. Our teeth tend to become more yellow as we age. By whitening your teeth, you can give yourself a more radiant, youthful looking smile. Professional teeth whitening is offered by nearly all cosmetic dentists and is virtually pain free. And if you prefer to whiten your own teeth, you can visit your local drug store and choose from a variety of over-the-counter teeth whitening kits. Below are some other tips for maintaining a whiter, brighter smile:

  • Use a whitening toothpaste
  • Consider whitening strips or gels that include peroxide
  • Avoid drinking wine or coffee regularly, as they can stain your teeth
  • If whitening is not successful with your teeth, consider veneers or bonding

 

5) Give your lips a makeover. Whitening your teeth without paying attention to your aging lips is a surefire way to give away your age. Our lips tend to look thinner as we get older. They also tend to by dryer and contain more creases. Below are some tips to help restore the youthful appearance of your lips:

  • Coat your lips with a moisturizing foundation prior to applying lipstick
  • Line your lips with a pencil and then apply the pencil to the unlined areas of your lips
  • Then apply a lip-plumping lipstick with a lipstick brush
  • Choose a color that is not too harsh or too bright

 

6) Get plenty of quality sleep. The visible signs of a poor night’s sleep worsen as we age. It is more important than ever to strive to get seven to eight hours of uninterrupted sleep every night. Sufficient sleep can aid in the prevention of fine lines and puffy eyes. Here are three tips to help ensure that you get the high-quality rest that your body needs to look younger:

  • Try setting your thermostat a degree or two lower at night
  • Do your best to establish and stick to a regular sleeping schedule
  • Consider using silk pillowcases to help prevent creases from forming on your face
  • Avoid excessive alcohol and caffeine before bed, as they can cause insomnia

 

7) Give tired looking eyes a tune-up. Sometimes it is just not possible to get seven to eight hours of quality sleep every night. The result is puffiness around the eye area and a loss of elasticity, which combine to make us look older. Below are some ways to help minimize the signs of aging around your eyes:

  • Stay properly hydrated by drinking plenty of water and using a moisturizer
  • Reduce your salt intake
  • Apply cool cucumber slices to puffy eyes to help reduce swelling

 

8) Wear sunglasses whenever you venture outdoors. The skin around your eyes is extremely delicate, making it more prone to sun damage and wrinkles. Venturing outside without sunglasses exposes your eye area to harmful rays and can also make you squint. Here are some ways that sunglasses can help you maintain your youthful appearance:

  • Sunglasses with lenses that are UV400 or greater will block harmful rays
  • Regular use of sunglasses will reduce squinting and wrinkles
  • Sunglasses may help postpone or prevent the development of cataracts

    With summer veggies in abundance, this is an opportune season to apply the cucumber tip….the ‘cool’ cucumbers under my eyes. My under eyes can use some help.
