Let’s face the facts: the older you get, the more energy you have to put in to making yourself look your best. If you’re of a certain age, let’s say 35 and above, it’s no longer a matter of just dieting or hitting the gym a few times a week. You now look in the mirror at a face that has fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, dark circles under your eyes, possibly a growth or mole that could be removed, and so on. So what can you do to rejuvenate your aging body? Read on for 5 head-to-toe tips for a revitalized and better looking you.
Tip #1: Slim down.
It’s time to lose those extra pounds. Many women have so many responsibilities with work, family, friends, and other obligations, that dieting goes on the back burner. However, you are in control of what you eat, and it’s a matter of choosing to eat better and more balanced meals. Limit your processed foods that can be high in fat and sugar, and choose to eat more fresh fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. Weight loss makes you look and feel years younger.
Tip #2: Add muscle.
Muscle burns calories even while you’re resting. You also look better if you’re toned up. So, find a workout that incorporates strength training, even if it’s 10 minutes per day. If you don’t prefer workout videos or classes, then start a walking, jogging, or stair climbing regime. Also, don’t forget about your arm muscles. Invest in a pair of 10 lb weights for your arms. Yoga has been increasing in popularity lately because it tones the entire body using your body weight as resistance. There is a plethora of exercise videos to choose from online, or plan to meet up with a friend to walk or go to the gym.
Tip #3: Rejuvenate your face!
You deserve to do something for yourself to enhance your looks. Start with removing the pigmentation on your face that ages you. The most common causes of dark or white spots on the face are the sun, stress, hormones, menopause, and injury. Moreover, people with light skin tend to get dark spots, whereas Asians tend to get light spots. Some ways you can get rid of these unappealing aspects of your face is to get a chemical peel, a laser face revitalisation, and other treatments at aesthetics centre in Singapore and other aesthetics experts.
Tip #4: Return to youth!
There’s nothing that ages you more than those fine lines and wrinkles on your face. Some of the most common treatments for fine lines and wrinkles is to get botolinum toxin and dermal fillers like juvederm. Botolinum helps to relax the muscles in your face, and facial fillers fill in the volume that is lost in some areas of your face. Check into these treatments at your local aesthetics centre and see if it’s right for you.
Tip #5 Pick-a-Procedure
Since every woman has different needs, this tip is for you to choose one more procedure that is tailored to your needs. Do you have an unsightly mole, unwanted hair, or yellowing teeth? Then get one or all of those things fixed. Maybe it’s as simple as getting a good manicure or pedicure. Whatever it is, finish up your new look by adding one piece of zest that will boost your self-confidence.
It’s going to take some time, energy, and hard work to rejuvenate yourself from head-to-toe, but think of how you will feel with a slimmed down and toned body, paired with a fresh face that is free of spots and wrinkles. Now is the time and you deserve it!
