Look Younger - by Editor

In continuation to our previous article on ageing well, here are some tips and tricks on what you can do to take years off your appearance.

Everyone wants to look younger than they really are, unless they are in their teens! In continuation to our previous article on ageing well, here are some tips and tricks on what you can do to take years off your appearance.


Blunt cuts make you look younger and perkier, but go in for a blunt cut only if you do not have frizzy hair, or your hair will look messy. However, if you are in control of your frizzes, go for it! Blunt cuts look best if you have straight hair.

Smooth, well maintained hair makes you look younger than messy, rough or dull hair. Make sure you snip off all split ends and trim hair regularly, so your hair is in good condition.

Hair Colour

Needless to say, conceal all strands of grey. Even if your face is smooth, wrinkle free and ageless, those grey strands are an immediate giveaway.

At times, blonde highlights in your hair make you look older than you really air, especially if you let the highlights dry out your hair, or if you go too light. Burnished, red highlights can make your hair look healthier and shinier than blonde highlights. You can go brown or a few shades lighter than your original hair.

If you are fair complexioned, you could try colouring your hair jet black. The contrast between black hair and light skin can look rather striking, and black hair makes you look younger than light hair.


Taking a few pounds off always makes you look younger. However, if you lose too much weight, you may start looking pulled down, drawn and tired, and consequently older. Being too thin or overweight can make you look older. You should aim to be within the right weight bracket for your height, or maybe the bracket below that. Thus, if your height is 5 foot 5 inches and you are a woman, you should weigh between 55 to 60 kg. However, even if you weigh anywhere between 50 to 54 kg, that should be fine. Don�t go any lower than that.

Toning Up

It doesn't matter if you are thin, if you are not toned. Even if you are skinny but have loose thighs, upper arm flab, your body will start showing your age.

Tone your arms
tighten your tummy
and trim your thighs


Exercise regularly. This gives you a healthy glow. In addition, if your face has a tendency to bloat, or if you are prone to puffiness below the eyes, regular exercise should help reduce that, making your face look fresher than ever! Combine regular exercise with frequent intake of water. Drink at least ten to twelve glasses of water everyday to flush out the toxins. Swimming is great exercise, and in addition to giving you a cardiovascular workout, it tones almost every part of your body. If you swim, you really don't need any other exercise.

Compact Powder

Avoid caking on compact powder. Often, women apply far too much compact powder with the result that their faces look pasty. Compact powder dries the face, causing fine lines to stand out more. Even if you have no lines, if you apply too much powder, it may appear as if you do. If you do apply compact powder, make sure it is not lighter than your skin colour, and that you apply moisturizer as well. Your best bet would be to apply a dusting of compact powder only on those areas that tend to shine, such as your nose, forehead and chin.


Moisturise daily, and don't forget your neck and hands.

Comments:   hey gals, well anyone can look young with proper dressing. if u wear pants, skirts u look younger, and then again if u wear salwar kameez rather than sarees, u'll definitely look younger. Upward hairstyles make u look older, hence loose hair or pulled down hair will make u look young.dark and bright colours will not only make u look younger but also slimmer.
