Feel younger by sprucing up your wardrobe with these tips

No one ever said that dressing in an age appropriate manner meant that you had to sacrifice trendy styles and fashion sense just because you are of a certain age group. You can spruce up your wardrobe by using a few simple tricks that will have you looking and feeling younger almost instantly. You may not want to dress like you are younger from head to toe; however, adding a few things to your current style can make a big difference.

Color: You can add a few pops of color to your everyday look to give yourself a more youthful look and feel. A bright scarf, colored tights or even a vivid shade for your shoes can give a traditional outfit a younger, fun look. The added color can easily bring a new energy to your traditional items.

Accessories: Another way that you can inject some youthfulness into your look is by accessorizing. This works well when you brighten your current wardrobe on the cheap. Add a few items to your collection that have a young and hip appeal to them. Handbags, shoes, watches and jewelry are all great options that can be added to any outfit to give it a whole new look. Choosing a few trendy pieces can go a long way in helping you to dress and look younger.

3 tips for eating to look younger

Wrinkles may look cute on baby elephants and puppies, but as a woman living in a world that thrives on youth, those fine lines and wrinkles are anything but cute.

Fortunately, in addition to a personalized skin care regimen as prescribed by your dermatology provider or skincare expert, a diet rich in citrus fruits, tomatoes, and whole wheat produce smoother looking skin and an overall younger looking appearance in those who tolerate these foods well.

Losing ellasticity like an over-used rubber band?

As women age, collagen (a protein that gives skin its natural elastin) production slows down causing skin sagging and wrinkling. Unfortunately, this slow down happens as early as age 20! An easy way to prevent this, in addition to speaking with your skincare expert, is to eat regular servings of citrus fruits. All citrus is loaded with vitamin C which, in addition to immune system boosting powers, also increases collagen production.

Sun worship left you looking like an old piece of leather?

You say “tomato,” and we shout, “lycopene!”, the strong antioxidant that acts as a powerful and natural sunscreen. The good news is that it’s easy to add extra tomatoes into your diet. Thick tomato sauces on pastas and pizzas in addition to raw tomato on salads and sandwiches add a quick and easy lycopene kick to your everyday meals. Eating more tomatoes has reduced skin inflammation and sunspots, creating an overall healthier and younger looking appearance in women just like you.

Ditch white for whole wheat and whole grain!

Citrus and tomatoes all add something to the skin, but it’s what whole wheat doesn’t do that makes it useful. Rather than being absorbed into the body quickly like white foods, whole wheat takes longer to digest. This means, unlike white food, whole wheat doesn’t turn into a burst of sugar, which created glycation and stiffens collagen. Once this happens, fine lines begin to appear like little sugar warning systems. Switch to whole wheat and/or whole grain pastas, rices, and bread to reduce the risk of aging before your time.

If you treat your body well, it will treat you well right back. If you’re noticing fine lines and wrinkles in your skin at a young age, look at your diet and see what you should add in and cut out to maintain a more youthful appearance.
