Our 40’s are great, we have come into our own, know what we want out of life and have embraced who we are.  It is also a time to preserve our inner and outward appearance.  Below are some easy tips to look younger over 40 and beyond.

THE FACE

1)  As father time ticks, our brows and lashes can become thin and frail.  Do not over pluck your brows ~ fuller brows give a more youthful appearance and frame the eye.  Long and thick lashes are also youthful.  Revitalash Advanced Formula can be used on both lashes and brows and will help promote growth.  If all else fails, consider eyelash extensions which are placed individually on each eyelash to create a natural full set of eyelash extensions.

2)  The 40’s is a time to maintain a healthy weight and allowing your body to be fit from the inside out is the best course of action.  Underweight 40 somethings loose facial volume that leads to wrinkles and skin sagging.  Accept yourself and your body’s natural weight.  No more yo yo dieting.  Enjoy a nutritional Green Drink filled with antioxidants.  The main ingredients are blended kale, spinach, arugula, lemon, blueberries and celery (handful of each).  Green drinks help the digestive system and keep us healthy.

3)  Retinol creams or prescribed Retin A is the only proven topical treatment to fight surface wrinkles.  We all should be using it!

4)  Teeth Whitening - our teeth age over time.  Simple White Strips do a wonderful job in erasing stains and brightening the smile.

5)  Forehead Furrows?  Botox is not your thing?  Have your hairstylist cut a side swing bang that softly covers your forehead and is light and wispy.  Straight across bangs can look like we are trying to hard.

YOUR HAIR

1)  Shiny and healthy hair is a must.  Choose a hair color that is right for you and do a weekly scalp massage with an essential oil such as rosemary oil combined with a carrier oil like olive oil.  Spend at least 20 minutes massaging and stimulating your scalp which will allow for healthy hair follicles and possible hair growth.

2)  If you find your hair is thinner than in your 20’s ~ you are not alone.  Investigate Fusion Hair Extensions to just add volume to your hair and possibly length.  Fusion Hair Extensions have been used for decades and when properly maintained, they will not damage your own hair.

YOUR BODY

1)  The body and mind connection keeps our brains healthy and reduces stress.  Workout and meditate at the same time keeps both the mind and body fit.  We all know the benefits of Yoga and we can implement Walking Meditation to get our heart rates up and burn calories.  The premise is to walk at a consistent pace while remaining mindful of our surroundings.  You can also repeat an inspirational Mantra such as “I am perfect health.”  Sort of killing 2 birds with one stone!

2)  Proper undergarments not only remind us to stand up straight, hold in our muscles, but keep out body looking great.  No harm in adding some padding in the right places!  Also, they keep us mindful of our eating.  Please limit the wearing of sweats!
