Things that Make You Look Older
The sun is the number one cause of wrinkles yet so many people fail to protect their skin. Wearing sunscreen and makeup with sunscreen will help prevent damage to skin that will appear later on as well as a sunburn that hurts and produces further skin damage.
Smoking is the elephant in the room. Unless you`re in denial, you know that smoking causes premature aging amongst many other undesirable effects on our bodies. Not only that, smoking is "old school" and unacceptable by today`s social standards. After all, who would start smoking cigarettes after learning just how dangerous it really is?
Stained, yellow teeth are not attractive and indicate aging, poor hygiene, and perhaps bad habit(s). If you make it a priority to whiten your teeth, you can brighten your smile and shave years off of your appearance.
It`s common knowledge that our metabolism slows down as we age. Although there are many overweight people of all ages, once you`re over thirty, extra pounds have a tendency to look matronly and signify an aging body. Healthy eating habits and a regular exercise routine are essential to looking your best at any age.
