Do you ever feel like you are ageing before your time? You look in the mirror and, like the song, those lines are getting clearer. But, you’re not old at all, you’re still young. Why then, do you feel like you look fifty! Well, this is due to the fact that the things that we typically associate with old age can crop up a lot sooner than most people realize. You can turn grey or white in your twenties, just ask Steve Martin and let’s not even think about thinning and balding here. Thankfully, there are a few ways you combat the signs of age when you’re still young. You just need to know the issues.
Dressing Younger Than You Are
The rule of fashion is simple. You have to dress to match your age. So, if you’re a teen, dress like a teen, if you’re twenty, it’s time to say goodbye to those superhero t-shirts and say hello to a button down shirt. Thirty? You may want to avoid wearing outfits that are too revealing, although they do say that forty is the new thirty and so forth. Still, you might find that by dressing your age you actually look younger and more successful.
Teeth yellow as you get older, so if your teeth constantly have a yellow tinge, people might guess you’re a few years older than you actually are. The good news is that it’s super easy to make your teeth white once more. There’s a trick that you can use with baking soda and lemon juice. Mix the two until they form a paste and then you can rub it over your teeth. Do this two or three times a week, washing it off each time. Eventually, you will start to see a noticeable difference in the shade of your teeth. The best part is that it won’t damage your teeth at all.
Hair, Hair Everywhere (Except Where You Want It)
This is going to affect guys more than gals. As you start to get older hair starts to get thinner on your head and grow out of every orifice. If you’re lucky this won’t start happening until you are at least forty but your hair can start thinning a lot earlier than that, and at this time you might find it grows out of your ears, nose and yes even on your back. Now your back isn’t that much of an issue because it will be mostly covered, but if you’re self-conscious about this, you can always wax it. As for the nose and ears, a trimmer is a tool you need in your arsenal. The website Manly Matters has key info on the types of trimmers you can get, and you should definitely check this out. Nose air is the one thing that will ensure people mistake you for a grandfather.
Saggy And Baggy
If your skin is starting to sag and your belly is beginning to bulge, you should be aware that there’s an easy fix. It’s time to take up a quick morning fitness routine. After a few months of situps, pushups and squats you can get your body back in shape and toned if it’s not too far gone.
Take this advice you can make sure you’re not mistaken for middle age when you’re only pushing thirty.
