A lot of advice for looking younger focuses on the face, or perhaps hair. But if you want to stay looking young, consider your body as well. Unfortunately, there is no one plan that fits every woman. It’s up to each of us to find what works. I do know that it’s important to give your body what it needs on a regular basis. Consistency helps you to naturally have a younger looking body. Both staying healthy and making good choices help you to not just look younger but feel younger too. Here are some of my top tips!
Have A Younger Looking Body #1: Get and Stay Fit
It’s true that even young people slack off where their bodies are concerned. In reality, that poor level of fitness while you’re young is what sets you up for aging faster. An active lifestyle throughout life gives the body what it needs to stay healthy longer. As we age, it’s important to find activities that meet your needs and do not cause stress. Not everyone likes going to the gym or even doing any kind of structured exercise. And that’s OK. Simply walking or swimming are both excellent ways to stay physically fit for life.
Have A Younger Looking Body #2: Protect Your Skin
Taking care of your skin can make a big difference if you want your body to look younger. As you get older, your body produces less collagen, which means your skin loses its elasticity. Hello sagging, crepy arms, legs, and chest. Even though this process will happen no matter what you do, being proactive does help to slow it down. Minimize your time in the sun, at least without protection. Wear clothing and sunscreen to protect sensitive areas like shoulders and the chest. Use quality skincare products including body wash, exfoliator, moisturizer, and sun protection.
Have A Younger Looking Body #3: Dress to Flatter Your Body
The way you dress and present yourself can actually make you appear younger. Being confident in your skin (no matter how old are) is one thing that can take years off of you. I’m not saying to go raid your teen daughter’s closet but do pay attention to what looks good on you. Sometimes, just wearing a different color or style can make all the difference in the world. I love to comb the fashion magazines for examples of mature women looking their best.
Have A Younger Looking Body #4: Consider Body Contouring, Breast Lift, Or Other Body Conditioning Treatments
It’s no secret that getting older means everything starts to sag a little. We won’t even mention that it’s harder to stay in shape as well. Fortunately, there are many modern treatments that address aging body issues. Body contouring, skin treatments, and even cosmetic surgery are all options.
Obviously, some of these are more invasive than others. Talk to your doctor about what would work for your particular situation. It may also help to research treatments, especially if it involves a surgical procedure. There are even videos on breast lifts and other cosmetic procedures online. Make sure you’re fully informed before making any major decisions.
