Talking about some amazing and simple beauty tips that can help you look years younger. Cause who doesn’t want to look younger. I have felt like I wanted to look younger.
Whiten Your Teeth | Beauty Tip
The first beauty tip that I want to share with you guys is to whiten your teeth. Nothing ages you faster than yellow teeth. And it happens to all of us if you drink coffee, you drink tea, you drink soda. Just as time goes by our teeth get more yellowed. I’ve tried a bunch of options here. I’ve tried ultraviolet light. I’ve tried the whiter strips. The best in my opinion is when you go to the dentist. You get the impressions done. You use the gel that they give you inside the impression and then use those to whiten your teeth.
The great thing about going to the dentist and doing that, at least my dentist. My dentist will give me as many of these needle gels. It looks like a needle. It’s actually a gel inside syringe. And the gel they have varying degrees of potency. So I opted for the 10% that I could wear on my teeth all night while I sleep. So that I wake up in the morning and it’s done. That’s easier for me. It’s also better for me because I do have some teeth sensitivity. And if you are more of a like I just want to do it and be done with it in a few hours. You could go with a higher percentage or a higher potency.
I really love the 10%. So I’ve never had the kind of results that I have had with these trays that I got from the dentist. No Crest White Strips. None of the other gizmo’s I’ve used. And the other thing is again I do have to teeth sensitivity. So the fact that I could use that 10% gel makes all the difference. I don’t have any sensitivity what so ever. So number one, white teeth.
Glowing Skin | Beauty Tip
Beauty tip number two is glowing skin. This is now a constant struggle for me living in a very dry climate at a very high altitude. But what I do is I will use oil, a lot of oil. I use serum oil and sometimes even over that I’ll use a balm. So I’m always in search of that real intense moisture. If you’re in a more humid climate like Florida or Texas. Then you don’t have to worry about it as much. But if you’re like me and you’re in a drier climate. You’re gonna have to work a little bit harder for the glow. And if your skin is already on the dry side you may also have to work a little bit harder for the glow. I’m a longtime fan of Colleen Rothschild’s skin care. And she has a number nine oil with retinol built in. And that is really hydrating the oil, it’s offsetting the retinol. But the oils will really give you that glow that makes you look more youthful.
Make Your Hair Shiny | Beauty Tip
The next beauty tip to help you look younger is to use something to make your hair shiny. Cause shiny hair really does make a big difference when it comes to making you look more youthful. If your hair is really dry and brittle that’s going to age you. So the hair mask that I absolutely love. Same brand also makes a hair serum for fly away. It’s called Obliphica. It’s a very odd word. I had to look up how to pronounce it, Obliphica.
If your hair doesn’t look shiny after a week of using Obliphica hair mask. Then I would highly recommend that you go and see your doctor and see if your thyroid is working properly. And everything is working alright on the inside because stuff is amazing for your hair. And it really should repair your hair. It really should make it shiny and healthy. And again that is gonna to make you look so much more youthful.
Have Thicker Hair | Beauty Tip
The next beauty tip to look younger is to have thicker hair. So in addition to shinier you need to have thicker hair. When your hair is thinning as you get older that could be very aging. So there’s a couple different ways that you can go about it. You can try hair extensions or hair pieces. Some people have so much thin hair they’re not able to do that. But if you are able to do that maybe you want to try a halo which I’ve talked about before. You want to try those clip in hair extensions. I love to use a thickening spray.
I love Bumble and Bumble thickening treatment it’s called. That really does work. Another option to make your hair look thicker and I’ve done fairly recently. And you guys have commented over and over and over again about how thick my hair looks. Just keep it all one length or if you do a little bit layering just do it at the bottom. Because if it’s all one length it looks thicker. And then if you cut it so it’s super healthy it’s gonna look a little bouncier and thicker too. Those are a few ways to get that thicker look to your hair.
You can try the hair extensions, you can try the halo, and you can try cutting it. You know strategically cutting it so that it’s all one length. Or cutting it shorter so that it looks a little bit thicker and bouncier. But thick hair will definitely make you look more youthful.
Wear a Ponytail | Beauty Tip
The next tip is to wear a ponytail. Wear your hair in a ponytail. It’s just so youthful and fun and vibrant. If you don’t mind your hair pulled back and you feel like you don’t have wonky ears or anything. Pull your hair back in a ponytail and that is such a great youthful look.
Have Thick Eyebrows | Beauty Tip
The next beauty tip is to have thick eyebrows. So if you are one of those people that plucks or waxes or whatever you’re doing. Like tone it down. Let then grow in thicker. I wish that mine were even thicker but I think this is about as good as they’re gonna get. Because I’ve been basically plucking my whole life. For those of you that are younger, you don’t have to worry so much because you’re growing up with the thick brows. So they’re probably already pretty thick. For those of us that are my age range, 40 50 60’s. You may be plucking and waxing for so long. It may be tough for you to grow back. The one where the brow is done the whole face looks more lifted. Looks more youthful. Looks more defined. It definitely has a huge impact.
Have a Light Dewy Foundation | Beauty Tip
Beauty tip number seven is to have a light dewy foundation. That means avoid powder. That means you’re gonna go light on the foundation. Maybe it’s not a super heavy, super thick, super matte foundation. Maybe there’s some glow in it. Some shimmer in it. What I like to do is I will mix a little bit of a primer together with a CC cream and I like the It Cosmetics CC cream. That creates some coverage and evens out the skin tone but still letting my real skin shine through. So it’s not this mask. It’s really just letting you shine through and that is one of the keys when you are getting older. You don’t want to wear caky too strong foundation. You want it to be very minimal and very natural but you still want to cover up all that red and all those veins and all that sun damage.
Okay so what I do to even out the skin tone because I am quite red is sometimes use the Dr. Jaret’s Tiger Grass I believe it’s called. And I’ll put just tiny little dots of that on my cheek because that’s where I get really red. And maybe a little bit around my chin, not much. Then I mix a little bit of primer with It Cosmetics CC cream and I will blend that in a little bit all around my face. And when you do wear a total mask and you load it up with foundation and powder. It’s really going to accentuate any lines. Any fine lines, any wrinkles, any creases at all. So that’s why I’m saying you should really go natural on the foundation.
Maybe even skipping foundation and just going for a BB or CC cream. And the other thing you can try. You can just even do some concealer to even out red tones and then a little bit of CC cream over that. So I traditionally will do the Tiger Grass to even out the red tone. Then a little bit of the primer mixed in with the CC cream and then I go back in and put a little bit of concealer under my eyes, around my nose, around my chin and then that’s it. So it seems like I’m putting a lot of stuff on my face but I’m really not. And I’m really letting the skin shine through. That is gonna help a lot when it comes to making you look more youthful.
Eyelid Primer | Beauty Tip
Another step in your beauty routine that’s really important in terms of anti-aging. In terms of making you look more youthful is an eyelid primer. I have a few but the one that I keep coming back to is this one by Two Faced. And I just like that it’s very moisturizing but it also has a little bit of a tint in it. So I feel like it does cover up those tiny red veins on the eyelid. And creates a really nice base for the shadow. So once I’ve done the foundation and the primer and the concealer.
Then I’m ready to finish up my makeup and here is another part of your beauty routine. It’s really important to remember not to be heavy handed with the rest of your makeup. So that means not a lot of eyeshadow. Not a lot of blush. Not a lot of heavy contouring. Not a lot of makeup anywhere on your face because the more makeup you wear the more aging it can be. So go really light on the makeup. So I’ll do a little bit of contouring. A little bit of highlight on the cheek. A little bit of eye shadow. Mascara of course and then that’s it.
Over Draw Your Lips with Lip Liner | Beauty Tip
The next beauty tip to help you look more youthful is to over draw your lips with lip liner. One of the things that happens as we get a bit older is we start to get these little tiny lines especially around the upper lip. You guys know what I’m talking about right? I mean if you’re in your 40’s I’m sure you’ve started to see these little tiny like hash marks just above the lip. It’s not pronounced, it’s not super intensive right now. But they’re starting to form there. So what you can do to cover those up, to hide them.
Is you can over draw the lip? That does two things. Not only does it make your lips look fuller and that’s again another thing that can make you look more youthful, fuller lips. It also can hide those little tiny lines. So I always over draw, especially the top lip. And then I do over draw the bottom lip a little bit and then fill it in of course. But that again makes your lips look more full which makes you look more youthful. And then it also hides up those little tiny lines right around your lips.
Sunscreen | Beauty Tip
The last beauty tip to help you look 10 years younger is probably the most important and that’s sunscreen. So I just tend to have sunscreen all over my house. I have some sunscreen in the kitchen. I have some sunscreen in the pantry, not kidding. I have some sunscreen in my like pad draw in the kitchen. I have sunscreen in my bathroom. I have sunscreen in my car. I like Super goop a lot because they have some really nice textures and consistency of their sunscreen. It doesn’t feel like sunscreen cause I don’t actually like the way traditional sunscreen feels or smells and it’s too thick for me. So I like to use the Super goop especially their serum. And I will put that on my face after I have moisturized and before I’ve applied the foundation. In the case of using a CC cream. My CC cream already has SPF 30 in it so I could potentially skip that step. But I’m still gonna put some SPF on my hands and if my chest is exposed, I’m gonna put some SPF on my chest. Sunscreen, big deal. Very big deal in terms of anti-aging. In terms of making you look more youthful and keeping you looking youthful. Okay you guys, so those were the 10 simple tips to help you look younger.
