Forget Gracefully: How Not to Age, Period

Now, if it is so easy for people to guess our age from the evidence of merely our appearance, it stands to reason then, that it is possible to present ourselves as whatever age we choose to. Of course, this does not apply to us until we’ve reached the age where we could be judged as ‘older’. However, with a few precision tweaking here and there, we’ll find that our appearance age has nothing to do with our old we actually are.

Here are valuable tips (for both men and women) to help you to stave off that ‘certain age’ appearance until you’re well into your sixties. Here’s to presenting your appearance age, at least 10 years younger than your actual years.

We all have ways of working out how old people are when we meet them.  Many times, we do it subconsciously a few seconds into our first brief encounter with them.  By the time they have walked off, we have in our minds, an impression of how old we think they are.

The first tell-tale signs of aging

If we know what the first signs of aging are, we are more likely to succeed in turning back the aging tick-tocking.  In order to look younger, the areas we need to first tackle are as follows:

  • Skin – face and neck
  • Hair
  • Wardrobe -shoes and clothes
  • Teeth
  • Weight
  • Outlook

 How to make your skin look young

Wrinkles are one of the first signs of ageing.  Keeping wrinkles under control, is keeping your appearance age tightly under wraps. I’ve been a catwalk and photographic model for longer than I’ve had any other job, and I can tell you that expensive creams hardly ever work if other conditions are neglected. All of the ground work for good skin comes from within, as other than an expensive face-lift (which we’re not even going to discuss) there is no ointment, balm or cream, which can truly ‘turn back the clock.’

Quit smoking, do not drink in excess, cut back on foundation, (I do not, and have never owned any foundation. It gets put on me when I’m working, but then I wash it off straight after) and most of all, sweat.

  3. great stuff to know!

  4. Everything you say is right on track. I will add that the best night cream you can use for your skin is good old vaseline. A light coating is plenty. You don’t have to go to bed and slide out of the sheets. My dermalogist recommends it and tells me it is what she uses.

  5. Great tips and advices.
