You can look younger if you avoid these 3 things.
Hey, I can’t tell you how much you can drink or smoke. Do whatever you’d like in that regard. Just know that the more you consume, the older you look at a faster rate than those who don’t. And if you don’t smoke or drink, congratulations you are already well on your way to staying youthful looking – long term.
But one thing EVERYONE has to deal with at one point or another is the sun. You may live in an area where it’s sunny year round. Or maybe you are 2 feet under snow right now. Whatever your situation, you are most likely outside sometime in the day. So what can you do to ensure the sunshine isn’t stealing your youth?
Unfortunately it’s true, a gorgeous fun day at the beach drinking margaritas with all your girlfriends is going to age you. But guess what? It doesn’t matter if it’s snowing or sunny outside your window right now. You can use these tips year round. Fair skin or dark skin or anything in between, here are the things you can do to look young for as long as possible every time you are outside!
Protect your hair
Your hair can get damaged by the sun in the same way as when you tan. You can help to protect it by using a mousse or gel that has a built in sunscreen. This will provide the protection that your beautiful locks need to stay healthy.
Protect your scalp
Have you ever burned your scalp from being in the sun too long? It’s not pretty. To help avoid sun exposure to your head, I recommend wearing a fabulous, enormous hat, the bigger the better. That’s right, when it comes to hats, the bigger the better.
Protect your skin
Naturally you want to protect your skin with the use of sun screen. Personally, I like to choose something that has an SPF of 50 or higher. Sometimes I even like to use a 70 or 100. It definitely protects your skin from the sun and you certainly don’t want to forget to apply it to your face. It’s really important to apply sunscreen, especially to your face, every single day no matter where you are. If you do this you will ward off the botox needles for much longer than your friends who don’t use sun screen. And remember your skin EVERYWHERE the sun kisses (even in the cold winter months – if your neck or tops of your hands are bare, they will look older faster if you are not putting sun screen on them).
Protect your eyes
Finally, you want to protect your eyes. You’ll want to keep your gorgeous eyes looking fabulous with a big pair of what I call movie star sunglasses, and they don’t have to be expensive at all.
Protect your lips
You also want to protect your lips, so be sure to get some kind of Chapstick or a gloss that has a built-in sunscreen to keep your lips nice and kissable, year round.
