Few years back it was a socially embarrassing thing for men to try to take off the years and continue to look young. All these years it was the women folk that seemed to have a patent on ‘look young’ arena. Following this I made some research and came across an article from Daniel Billett on 10 Easy and Inexpensive Ways to Take Years Off of Your Appearance. He starts his article……”With all of the makeover shows on television, new anti-aging cosmetics, and general obsession with staying young looking, its no surprise that people are willing to spend small fortunes on products and procedures to look and feel younger. But you don’t have to break the bank to look and feel your best. Here are ten easy and inexpensive ways to take years off of your appearance and keep it that way.”
Then he correctly points out that moisturizing is a key to keeping the skin young and vibrant. He continues…..”If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a hundred times, moisturize! Dry skin looks dull and lackluster. So not only do you want to use a moisturizer on your face (including an eye cream) but also on your hands and body. And since your hands especially get a lot of abuse, and can show age almost more than your face, keep some hand cream handy at your desk or by the sink. There are plenty of great moisturizes for men out there but I have My Favorite Face Moisturizers for Men.
Always use sunscreen! We all know that the sun is the single most damaging thing to your skin, so make sure to protect yourself. I have compiled a list of Face Moisturizers for Men with SPF as well as My Favorite Sunscreens and Sunblocks for Men.”
Maintain your brows! Be sure to keep your brows neat and trimmed, especially between the eyes! The uni-brow isn’t something to be proud of.
Say no to facial hair! Some folks like their beards and goatees and that okay, but if you want to look younger, shave it off since facial hair ages you. Here are 7 Tips for Getting the Best Shaving Results.
Finally he concludes that “Hit the gym or take a walk! Even if it is just to walk on the treadmill, exercise will help you maintain good posture, alleviate stress (which causes wrinkles), and increase blood flow (which keeps your whole body well oxygenated), not to mention that it keeps you fit!”
My final note to this is try to slow aging down because when you look good you feel good. You can read Daneil’s full article here. ‘
