How To Look Younger? Avoid These Common Mistakes!

The most common signs of ageing - Brown spots, gray hair, and wrinkles? But you know, there might be some other unexpected factors that could be making you look older than you realize.

1. Under-eye Circles
Actually dark circles are the first sign of aging. Losing volume under the skin is a natural part of getting older, say cosmetic surgeons and dermatologists.This can cause deep depressions under the thin layer of skin. In addition, certain women naturally have extra pigment under the eyes, while others have prominent blood vessels that are showing through the skin as purple.

Few easy steps can turn back the clock, try a very thin veil of foundation. Then, instead of a heavy concealer, try a light pink brightener. “It bounces light under the eye, making you look much younger,”

2. Your High-School Hair
Are you still feel comfortable with your old hair style? Just change it! Even if you’re dyeing, sporting the same haircut you had in high school can really add years to your face. “Longer hair just drags you down,” Nothing says old lady like an out-of-date cut, especially one that’s all one length.

Look into the magazines to get ideas. To bring your hair into the 21st century, try out one new cut. “Shoulder length and above is always a really nice way to go,” long, soft layers and side bangs also look good.

3. Droopy Earlobes
Party-type heavy ear rings are something; girls can’t help wearing in young age. But it has bad effect with the passing of years. Most women brace themselves for a certain amount of sagging, but they probably aren’t expecting it to happen in their earlobes. Through the process of photo aging, skin loosens and becomes more lax. Heavy earrings can result in floppy earlobes. Even more common is for piercings to get longer as earrings are pulled and snagged.

The bad news is earlobes are one body part that can’t be tightened with exercise, the only solution here is a quick surgical procedure. To repair stretched holes, sews the holes back together and then repierces the ear after it heals. Switch to some light, cute ear-tops instead.

4. Funky Feet
More or less, but foot are often neglected. We love to experiment with clothes, jewellery, makeup etc, but hardly spend any time for feet except just wearing fashionable sandals. The saying goes that you can tell a woman’s true age by looking at her hands—but the feet tell a story of their own. Years of walking in high heels, flip-flops, and other unsupportive shoes can take their toll in the form of bunions.

Keep your feet youthful by taking steps to avoid a bunion in the first place, especially if they run in your family. Make it softer by proper oil message and regular care. Try feet-strengthening exercises such as Pilates or yoga. Carefully choose your footwear, especially if you’re going to be doing a lot of walking. If a bunion does start to develop, see a podiatrist.

5. Too-Sparse Eyebrows
A lifetime of plucking and thinning unruly eyebrows can cause long-term sparseness, Because brows already get thinner as we get older, women can end up with an unflattering shape and arch.

Turn back the clock: If you have full eyebrows, avoid over-plucking. But if you’ve already started to lose volume, makeup is your best friend. A liquid brow corrector can fill in thin spots and even cover grays, For the best look eyebrows, feather it on using small, little brush strokes.
