Well, lucky for you, there are many ways for a man to look younger. Like women, men have also started to explore the beauty industry. According to Transparency Market Research, the global anti-aging market is projected to be worth $191.7 billion in 2019. These products are geared toward helping men and women look more youthful, so they are flying off shelves faster than ever.
While the cosmetic and beauty industry has the option of cosmetic surgery to get the look, but it’s not the only option.
Following below are some of the best tips to make you look younger and also slow down the aging process.
Adopt Healthy Habits
If you want to look good on the outside, you have to take care of your inside. Take rest and an eight-hours of sound sleep, eat at the right times, drink plenty of water, and exercise regularly.
Leave the booze and smoking as smoking can add years to your appearance. Beverages like the cocktail, beer, and wine dilate blood vessel which causes spider veins and give you a bloated appearance. So be mindful of the amount and content of what you’re consuming as too much liquor leaves awful effects on the body.
What you put into your body has a lot to do with how your skin looks and feels. A lot of you already know that a diet full of sweets, fried and processed foods aren’t great for your health. They show your years on your face.
So, to improve your diet, cut out excess sugar. Because too much of the sweet food leads to inflammation, which makes you look older. Also, overloading on sugar damages collagen that is vital for making your skin firm.
There are loads of delicious foods that are good for health and keep you young. So, include fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and cheese to your diet.
Choose Appropriate Hairstyle
Hairstyles add a lot to your personality. If you think you look old, then keep your hairstyle neat. If you are going bald, then there are some options; trim them super short or shave your head clean. To cover your grays, you can apply a color close to your natural shade.
Do Exercise Daily And Stay Active
The key to looking younger also lies in exercise. All you have to do is lace up your sneakers, head out the door, and do a work-out.
Exercise helps to reduce belly fat, increases metabolism, improves your posture, and can help slow down cell aging. Interestingly, regular exercise can make the complexion appear dramatically more youthful. Exercise also makes you energetic, and we don’t have to say it because everyone knows that youth is symbolized with energy.
Add Some Color to Your Clothes “wisely”
There is nothing wrong in adding a little color to your outfit. Most men tend to gravitate toward clothes that are navy, black, and gray or brown. Though these color outfits are great essential pieces, you can still enhance a youthful look by adding clothes of different colors.
Add a few quality pieces like a good suit, a leather jacket, and dark-wash classic-fit jeans to your closet. If you have extra money, then buy some trendy items each season, or if you can afford to have your clothes tailored for a perfect fit, then go for that.
Go to a store and try on new colors and see what suits you well. Today’s men fashion is not as restricted as it used to be in the past. So, experiment with new colors and textures. But keep the element of subtlety in mind and don’t go overboard with crazy colors.
Moisturize Your Skin Daily
If you are brought up by a mother who is well aware of the benefits of hydrated skin and has kept lotions on hand to keep her skin in great shape, then you know that moisturizing isn’t something that should be neglected. The dryness of skin exaggerates signs of aging in the face and body.
So, to moisturize your skin, use some sort of hydrating cream/lotion/serum that has a light consistency during the day and at night, it’s good to use a cream that has a richer formula because that’s when our skin tends to dry out. Don’t ignore the eyes area because wrinkles around eyes usually crop up first.
If you are more into skincare, then look for moisturizers with retinoids as they help you to slough off old skin cells. Many over-the-counter products have retinoid. You can also go to a dermatologist to get a stronger version by prescription. They stop collagen from breaking down, and this gives you a more vibrant, youthful look.
Take Proper Teeth Care
Men who brush and floss regularly will look good when they smile. You know that when people get old, their teeth look stained. So, to make your teeth shine, you can use a whitening toothpaste or at-home bleaching strips or trays. You can also go to a dentist for a tooth whitening treatment.
Trim the Unwanted Hair
Normally whenever we imagine an old man, we get a picture of crazy eyebrows, ear hair, and a bushy back. So if you don’t want to look like that, then tame your brows, ears, and nose hair. Go to a barber, or you can do it yourself with at-home trimmers. Don’t let your back and chest hairs to peek out of the top of your shirt. There are different ways to remove them e.g., shaving, waxing, depilatory (a cream that removes hair), etc.
If you have eyesight problems and wear glasses, then ditch your old glasses and wear molded plastic eyeglass frames. They are in trend and will help hide some of the character lines around your eyes (if you have any).
Choose frames that sweep upward at the temples to give your face a visual lift. Visit a store and try on different styles to see which frame makes you look younger. Try to avoid styles that have heavy lower sections or a downward curve. These styles can give you a heavy or droopy look.
Wear Sunscreen Daily
Now the most important lesson in the book of anti-aging. If you’re an outdoor lover or you work outdoor, then you should know that excess sun exposure will burn and dry out your skin. For this, you need to start thinking about how much time you’re spending in the sun as ultraviolet (UV) rays break down skin fibers, which cause it to sag and lose elasticity.
Also, your health gets at risk when you expose yourself too much to the sun. It has been reported that between the age of 15 to 39, men are 55 % more likely to die due to melanoma than women from the same age group. So, apply some sunscreen before jetting out of your door and pick a sunblock that gives at least SPF 30 protection or higher.
So, now you know how to look younger for a man, and the best part is that it is not that easy to do so.
