1. Dye Your Hair

Aside from showing wrinkles, your hair is one of the first major signs of aging. Typically, most people start to show some grey or white hair between their mid-30s to mid-40s. Although some people like to wear their grey or white hair with confidence, this isn’t the case for everyone. If you want to appear younger than your biological age, you will want to get rid of your grey hair. Simply dying your hair or just part of your hair to eliminate how much grey hair shows is an easy way to look years younger. Both men and women can enjoy the benefits of dying their hair.

Bonus tip: consider adding highlights to your hair or dying it a lighter color. It helps brighten your complexion and take away the emphasis on your wrinkles or thinning hair.

2. Wear Sunscreen Every Day

Another easy way to look younger and prevent yourself from looking older is wearing sunscreen on your face and neck every day. If you live in a sunny area and other areas of your body regularly experience sun exposure, you should also apply sunscreen to those areas too. Sun damage is one of the leading causes of wrinkles and premature aging. By wearing sunscreen daily, you will prevent your wrinkles from getting worse and prevent new ones from developing.

3. Use a Collagen-Based Face Cream

Life’s real fountain of youth is found in collagen-based face creams. As you age, your body produces less collagen which causes you to lose elasticity and hydration in your skin. This can cause more wrinkles to show up. Using a collagen-based face cream can help tighten your skin and erase wrinkles. It might also be beneficial to take collagen supplements.

4. Stay Hydrated

Don’t wait to drink water until you’re thirsty. Drinking water all day long, at least eight glasses per day can help your skin stay hydrated and look brighter and younger. It can also help you lose weight!

5. Eat More Fruits and Veggies With Vitamin-C

Vitamin C naturally causes your body to boost collagen production which helps keep your skin firm and looking young in addition to helping your fingernails grow and your hair stay strong. Eating more fruits and vegetables loaded with vitamin C can help boost your collagen production. Try eating bell peppers, strawberries, kiwis, kale, brussels sprouts, lemons, parsley, oranges, and more.

6. Eat More Salmon

Salmon is one of the fatty fish that’s loaded with Omega 3s as well as DMAE (dimethylaminoethanol) which is a compound that increases muscle tone. This is the same expensive ingredient you will find in most skin creams. Simply eating oily fish twice a week can offer you the same benefits as these expensive skin creams.

7. Eat More Greens and Reds

In addition to eating more fruits and vegetables with vitamin C and oily fish, you should also increase your intake of green and red vegetables and fruits. Vegetables like kale are high in vitamin K which helps your blood coagulate and decrease the impact of bruising. On the other hand, eating more tomatoes helps protect the skin against UV rays due to them containing Lycopene.

8. Exercise Regularly

According to a study, regular exercise can help slow down the body’s aging process. Regular exercise fights off muscle loss, helps you sleep better. Not to mention, it’s great for stress relief and your heart health.

9. Dress on Trend

When’s the last time you upgraded your wardrobe? Just because you’re sixty or seventy years old doesn’t mean you need to resort to wearing stretchy pants and sneakers for the rest of your life. Simply changing up your wardrobe to more fashionable clothes can help you look younger. We’re not saying to go put on a mini skirt and high heels, but to just dress more on-trend. Take a look at the latest fashion trends for your age group online to get inspiration.

10. Smile More

There’s no exact explanation for it, but those who smile more are often perceived as younger than their biological age. In addition, smiling more can make you look more approachable and optimistic. Turn your frown upside down and shave years off your appearance.

11. Get Facelift Dentures with Dental Implants
