I know there are already people scoffing at that headline. You can’t look twenty years younger, that’s just a marketing ploy, right? Wrong, it is possible to ensure that you always look younger than you are. Yes, that can mean shaving twenty years off your perceived age. If you don’t believe that, research the sixty-year-old star that people constantly mistake for being thirty. Now, we don’t all have the money and resources to get the latest plastic surgery and botox. So instead, let’s look at some of the more natural ways we can always look like we’re in our prime.
You Are What You Eat
The first thing you need to think about is your diet. You probably think eating those burgers and fries isn’t doing too much damage to your complexion and you are right. A couple blemishes can be covered up with makeup, and you still look great. But what about as you get older? As you start to age past your twenties, those junk food meals take more of a toll on your body. Or rather your skin. Ask anyone and they’ll tell you the first thing they look at when judging your age is your skin. If it looks worse for wear, they might add a few extra years when guessing your age. Luckily, eating an organic diet with plenty of fruit and veg will keep your skin looking young.
Don’t Move Too Fast
We’re still thinking about food and this time considering weight loss and weight gain. If you want to stay looking young, you don’t need to worry about whether or not you lose or gain weight. Instead, you need to think about how fast the change is. You might think dropping the pounds as quickly as you can is a brilliant idea. But is it really? When you’re young, your skin is very elastic and will handle weight loss and gain with ease. As you age, it loses that elasticity and instead starts to sag or wrinkle. You will often find people who lose weight fast age a lot quicker than those who lost it gradually. Therefore, it’s not always the best idea to try and shed that weight in weeks.

Reverse Time Before You See The Signs
Another misconception about aging signs is that you should treat it once you start to see wrinkles. Afraid not, if you don’t want to get wrinkles, you need to be using anti-aging cream right now. You can have a look at a site like Cosmetiqo.com for some examples of the recommended anti-aging cream as well as the best ingredients.
Don’t Worry, Be Happy
Last but not least, you need to avoid getting too stressed. Most of us know the dire effects that stress can have on the human body. It can cause your hair to fall out, your skin to get pasty and your body to feel bloated. Does it really surprise you that stress causes you to age faster? Just look at Barack Obama. You can see a before and after pic on Dailymail.com When he entered the White House, he had slick black hair with bright, youthful eyes. Now, his hair is turning gray, and the lines across his face can’t be hidden with makeup. That is exactly what stress could do to you.
