Most people are actively looking for ways to prevent looking older faster, whether this comes from eating right, exercising, or getting enough sleep.
But while our focus is generally on not looking older, what are some strategies we could employ to start looking younger?
Here are 12 things that make you appear younger almost immediately.
#1. Getting a New Haircut
A hairstyle can tell you a lot about a person.
If you’re wearing a hairstyle that was popular decades ago, your age is going to show.
See if you can get a haircut that flatters you but is also something fresh and exciting.
#2. Being Adventurous and Having a Sense of Wonder
Young people are naturally more daring, filled with wonder, and willing to explore anything and everything.
If you haven’t taken the time to break out of your comfort zone, you just might when you realize how many will perceive you to be younger because of it.
#3. Updating Your Wardrobe
Much like an old hairstyle, an old wardrobe can make you look much older than you actually are.
The good news?
Whereas hair trends may be sillier (especially when people look back on them), adopting a new clothing trend is relatively safe.
#4. Keeping Up With Current Trends and Lingo
Staying young means knowing what’s going on with today’s youth.
Keep tabs on all of the hot trends and the different lingo that they’re using (even if you don’t necessarily use these words or phrases yourself).
A great way to do this is to download some of the most popular social media platforms and follow the top content creators.
#5. Shaving Your Beard
If you’re a man, a beard can make a major difference in how old you look.
Whereas a beard can help you age years or decades, shaving a beard will produce the opposite effect.
If you’re trying to look younger, consider going for a clean shave the next time you have a chance.
#6. Maintaining a Friend Group
The older you get, the harder it is to meet people and maintain friendships.
Meanwhile, much younger individuals have extensive friend groups they talk to regularly.
See if you can find online or in-person groups to meet people who share similar values or interests so you can cultivate a circle of friends or expand the one you already have.
#7. A New Bra
For women who are concerned about the appearance of their chest and whether or not it indicates their age, a lot of women recommend investing in some new bras.
Over time, bras begin to break down and become less supportive.
A new bra can make all the difference.
#8. Getting Better Posture
People generally associate being hunched over with being older.
If you hunch over often, make it a priority to work on your posture.
They sell many devices and flexible braces you can wear now to help you sit up straighter and stand up taller.
#9. Reducing the Amount of Makeup You Wear
The more makeup you wear, the older people will assume you are.
Reducing the amount of makeup that you have on can make you look fresher and younger.
Of course, that doesn’t mean you have to cut it out entirely.
Going for a more natural look can help a lot!
#10. Confident, Brisk Walking
Even though younger people do tend to dawdle, it’s a sign of aging to walk very slowly or to be slouching while you’re walking.
Walk more briskly and confidently the next time you’re out, and you’ll look more youthful.
#11. Being Happy and Positive
There’s a common trope about older people being more negative and cynical, which might be true for those who have had a negative life experience.
But do you know who’s generally optimistic and positive about the future?
See if there are ways that you can cultivate a happier and more positive outlook on life.
The energy you give off will be invigorating to yourself and the people around you.
#12. Quitting Alcohol
Enjoying alcohol is not a bad thing, but at the end of the day, it’s still a toxin.
If you drink often, it’s going to naturally make you look older and feel older, which is exactly the opposite of what you currently want.
Even if it’s just for a brief period, quit alcohol and see how you feel and how much it changes your appearance.
Alongside good health habits, the difference can be striking.
