 Hi ladies,  If you’re new to my website, my goal is to help you look incredible, To look and feel your very best every single day. Today we will discover some amazing and simple beauty tips that can help you look years younger, because who doesn’t want to look younger right? Since turning 35, I’m 44 now.

I have felt like I wanted to look younger, which is ironic because when I was younger I wanted to look older. So I started to notice wrinkles popping up and things happening and certainly now in my 40’s. I’m noticing maybe once a quarter something new pop up, so I’m always interested in antiaging.

I’m always interested in looking more vibrant and youthful. And I wanted to share some key core simple beauty tips with all of you to help you on your journey if you are interested in looking younger.

But before we dive in I just want to say I really do believe in the power of looking good. I feel like when you look good you feel good and that is so impactful. And it impacts everything you know. You’re a better mom, a better wife, a better friend, a better sister.

Everything in life is better because it affects how you feel on the inside. So I think it’s easy to discount this stuff as kind of frivolous and I don’t need to take my time and do this stuff. But it has such value and such power, So use it.

1. whiten your teeth

The first tip that I want to share with you is to whiten your teeth. Nothing ages you faster than yellow teeth yuk. And it happens to all of us if you drink coffee, you drink tea, you drink soda. Just as time goes by our teeth get more yellowed. I’ve tried a bunch of options here.

I tried ultraviolet light, the whiter strips. The best, in my opinion, is when you go to the dentist. You get the impressions done, you use the gel that they give you inside the impression and then use those to whiten your teeth. The great thing about going to the dentist and doing that is the dentist will give you as many of these needle gels.

It looks like a needle. It’s actually a gel inside this syringe. And the gel they have varying degrees of potency. So I opted for the 10% that I could wear on my teeth all night while I sleep.

So that I wake up in the morning and it’s done. That’s easier I think. It’s also better If you have some teeth sensitivity. And if you are more of a like I just want to do it and be done with it in a few hours.

You could go with a higher percentage or a higher potency. I really love the 10%. So I’ve never had the kind of results that I had with these trays that I got from the dentist. No Crest White Strips. None of the other gizmo’s I’ve used.

2.Glowing skin

Glowing skin

Number two is glowing skin. This is now a constant struggle for us, especially if you’re living in a very dry climate, but what you can do is use oil, a lot of oil. use serum oil and sometimes even over that use a balm, so always search for that real intense moisture.

If you’re in a more humid climate like Florida or Texas. then you don’t have to worry about it as much. But if you’re in a drier climate you’re gonna have to work a little bit harder for the glow if your skin is already on the dry side, you can use Colleen Rothschild’s skincare,

She has a number nine oil with retinol built-in and that is really hydrating the oil, it’s offsetting the retinol. But the oils will give you that glow that makes you look more youthful.

3. Shiny hair

Shiny hair

The next beauty tip to help you look younger is to use something to make your hair shiny because shiny hair does make a big difference when it comes to making you look more youthful. If your hair is really dry and brittle that’s going to age you. So the hair mask that I absolutely love is called Obliphica.

If your hair doesn’t look shiny after a week of using Obliphica hair mask. Then I would highly recommend that you go and see your doctor and see if your thyroid is working properly. And everything is working alright on the inside because this stuff is amazing for your hair.

And it really should repair your hair. It really should make it shiny and healthy. And again that is going to make you look so much more youthful.

4. Thick hair

Thick hair

The next beauty tip to look younger is to have thicker hair, so in addition to shinier, you need to have thicker hair. When your hair is thinning as you get older that could be very aging so there are a couple of different ways that you can go about it, you can try hair extensions or hairpieces, some people have so much thin hair they’re not able to do that.

But if you can do that maybe you want to try a halo or try those clip in hair extensions, you can use a thickening spray like Bumble and Bumble thickening treatment. That really does work.

 Another option to make your hair look thicker is to just keep it all one length or if you do a little bit layering just do it at the bottom Because if it’s all one length it looks thicker. And then if you cut it it’s super healthy it’s gonna look a little bouncier and thicker too.

Those are a few ways to get that thicker look to your hair. You can try the hair extensions, you can try the halo, you can try cutting it so that it’s all one length. Or cutting it shorter so that it looks a little bit thicker and bouncier. But thick hair will definitely make you look more youthful.

5. Hair in ponytails

Hair in ponytails

 The next tip is to wear a ponytail. Wear your hair in a ponytail. It’s just so youthful and fun and vibrant. If you don’t mind your hair pulled back and you feel like you don’t have wonky ears or anything. Pull your hair back in a ponytail and that is such a great youthful look.

6. Thick eyebrows

Thick eyebrows

The next tip is to have thick eyebrows. So if you are one of those people that plucks or waxes or whatever you’re doing. Just tone it down. Let them grow in thicker. For those of you that are younger, you don’t have to worry so much because you’re growing up with the thick brows. So they’re probably already pretty thick. For those of you that are 40 50, 60. You may be plucking and waxing for so long. It may be tough for you to grow back.

So what you then can do is you can either dye them if you have light brows. So in my eyebrows, I have a lot of blonde hair and so when I dye them they look thicker lusher and they frame the face better.

And another thing I do and I love to do and I think it’s one of the best brow tools that we have at our disposal is the Gimme Brow by Benefit, and that again will just make them a little bit more prominent. A little bit thicker, a little bit richer in color.

It will definitely create a more youthful look for your face, the whole face looks more lifted and looks more defined. It definitely has a huge impact. Castor oil is supposed to help promote growth for your eyebrows so it doesn’t hurt to try it.

Castor oil is a wonderful oil anyway so even if you buy some and you find it’s not helping your brows grow you can use it to cleanse your face there are a bunch of different ways that you could use.

7. Light dewy foundation

Light dewy foundation

Tip number seven is to have a light dewy foundation, which means avoid powder and means you’re gonna go light on the foundation. Maybe it’s not a super heavy, super thick, super matte foundation, maybe there’s some glow in it, some shimmer in it.

What you can do is to mix a little bit of a primer together with a CC cream, that creates some coverage and evens out the skin tone but still letting your real skin shine through, so it’s not ta total mask,

It’s really just letting you shine through and that is one of the keys when you are getting older, you don’t want to wear cakey too strong foundation, you want it to be very minimal and very natural but you still want to cover up all that red and all those veins and all that sun damage.

So what you can do to even out the skin tone is to use Dr. Jart’s Tiger Grass, and put just tiny little dots of that on your cheek because that’s where it gets really red.

And maybe a little bit around your chin, not much.

Then mix a little bit of primer with It Cosmetics CC cream and blend that in a little bit all around your face, so your face and skin tone look even but you can still see skin through there.

It’s not a total mask you know, and when you do wear a total mask and you load it up with foundation and powder, It’s really going to accentuate any lines, any fine lines, any wrinkles, any creases at all. So that’s why you should really go natural on the foundation, maybe even skipping foundation and just going for a BB or CC cream.

The other thing you can try, you can even do some concealer to even out red tones and then a little bit of CC cream over that.

So it seems like I’m putting a lot of stuff on my face but I’m really not, and I’m letting the skin shine through. That is gonna help a lot when it comes to making you look more youthful.

8. Eyelid primer

eyelid primer

 Another step in your beauty routine that’s really important in terms of anti-aging, In terms of making you look more youthful is an eyelid primer. I have a few but the one that I keep coming back to is Too Faced,

I just like that it’s very moisturizing but it also has a little bit of a tint in it, so you feel that it does cover up those tiny red veins on the eyelid, and creates a really nice base for the shadow, so once you’ve done the foundation and the primer and the concealer. Then you’re ready to finish up your makeup.

It’s really important to remember not to be heavy-handed with the rest of your makeup, which means not a lot of eyeshadow, not a lot of blush, not a lot of heavy contouring, not a lot of makeup anywhere on your face because the more makeup you wear the more aging it can be, so go really light on the makeup.

9. Overdraw lips

Overdraw lips

The next tip to help you look more youthful is to overdraw your lips with lip liner. One of the things that happen as we get a bit older is we start to get these little tiny lines, especially around the upper lip, you know what I’m talking about right?

I mean if you’re in your 40’s I’m sure you’ve started to see these little tiny like hash marks just above the lip, It’s not pronounced, it’s not super intensive right now, but they’re starting to form there, so what you can do to cover those up,

Is you can overdraw the lip, that does two things, not only it make your lips look more full, It also can hide those little tiny lines, so always overdraw, especially the top lip and then overdraw the bottom lip a little bit and then fill it in of course. But that again makes your lips look more full which makes you look more youthful.

10. Sunscreen

The last beauty tip to help you look 10 years younger is probably the most important and that’s sunscreen. you can try¬† Supergoop, they have some really nice textures and consistency of their sunscreen. It doesn’t feel or smell like sunscreen, traditional sunscreen sometimes is too thick, so you can use the Supergoop especially their serum,

put that on your face after you have moisturized and before you’ve applied the foundation, you can also put some SPF on your hands and your chest if it’s exposed.

Sunscreen is a very big deal in terms of anti-aging, In terms of making you look more youthful and keeping you looking younger.

Those were the 10 simple tips to help you look 10 years younger, I think that if you employ these tips you will see a notable difference within a few weeks.
