Ways To Stop The Clock On Ageing

We may not have access to the fountain of eternal youth, but that doesn't stop us wanting to look and feel our best as we get older. Aging is a natural process that should be embraced for the wisdom and calmness it brings - but reaching a certain number doesn’t mean that you have to abandon caring about your appearance. How we look is form of self-expression, after all. Here are some top new tricks to stop the clock and feel at your best…

Plan a Hair Makeover

Although it may not be the first thing you think of, hair can be a significant aging factor - and one that is easily corrected. While many reach for the hair dye to cover greying strands, if the shade you pick is too dark, you're going to run into trouble. Too dark locks can be harsh and draining, making you look older, while over highlighting can also give hair a brassy appearance that is equally aging. Consulting a professional colorist is the way forward. If thinning strands are more of an issue, there are now effective at home treatments, from thickening sprays to bulk up strands and disguise thinning patches to high tech solutions to achieve hair re-growth, such as the capillus laser cap.

Get Moving

Your number one anti-aging secret weapon? Exercise. Not only does it do wonders for your general health and mental well being, but it also gets the blood pumping- giving skin and hair a boost of nutrients and oxygen. Make outdoor exercise your goal on a daily basis - a gentle jog or a power walk for half an hour is achievable for even the busiest among us. It will make you look so much fresher as well as gradually helping to tone up and shed any extra pounds. You can shave years off your appearance by adopting exercise as a habit - the key is to find something you love doing, be that joining in a Pilates class or hitting the squash court. You can even find low-impact home workouts for when the weather is less favorable.

Use Makeup For A Facelift

If you don't have a surgeon on speed dial, careful application of cosmetics can fake the same effect. To achieve the effect of an eye life, contour the eyes with natural colored shadows, with a light shade on the lid and a deeper shade swept into the crease to disguise drooping lids. Something like the Urban Decay Naked Basics palette or NYX Lid Lingerie have the perfect array of shades to achieve this scalpel-free transformation.  Similarly, a pink blush in a dewy, creamy formulation is your friend. Patted into the apples of cheeks and swept upwards, it gives a lifted look and a flattering youthful flush, drawing the eye upwards.

Revamp Your Wardrobe

Getting older doesn't mean that you have to avoid the latest trends- the secret to making it age appropriate lies in how you style it. Avoid going too matchy matchy as this can look dated and instead mix up your style - clashing leopard print with a breton stripe or mixing a floral dress with a leather jacket looks great at any age.
