Having an open mind keeps your whole body active and healthy. Letting go of the notion that you have to be right all the time not only makes you seem younger, but it also makes you a more interesting people, and interesting people have more fun in their lives. And people who have more fun in their lives just seem younger. One of the best way you can improve your anti-aging ability is to stop thinking and acting like an old fuddy duddy! Learn something new!

These are ways you can improve your mental outlook and appear to be younger than you might be. There are also a few things you can do to make your outward appearance look younger:
Just to start off with the basics – Do clean your skin regularly and take off your makeup every night. Do use moisturizer. Do stay out of the sun. Do drink plenty of water. Don’t smoke. Don’t sleep on your face. Don’t yo-yo diet because it will stretch and pull your skin out of shape.
Use light pink or nude lipstick or lip gloss to give your lips just a bit of a rosy hue. As we get older, our lips tend to shrink and dark lipstick on thin lips can make you look older, especially when the lipstick runs out the wrinkles.
Draw attention away from your flaws and put it on your assets. Wattle-necks and loose neck skin are really aging! Don’t wear chokers and short necklaces that bring the attention there. Wear beautiful earrings that draw the eyes up, up and away from the wattle.
Eyes are one of the best features we can use to look a little younger. Using an eyeliner pencil rather than a liquid liner can create a softer look, especially if it’s smudged with a Q-tip to make it more natural looking. If you must use liquid, make it smooth, or you’ll look like a shaky little old lady!
Eyebrows and eyelashes thin out with time also. Use a brow pencil to brush upwards and shape your eyebrows into a nice arch. Use an eyelash curler to emphasize and separate the lashes you have left. This will give you an immediate eye lift!
The truth is we’re not getting any younger, but big deal and so what? You can’t stop the clock, but you can stop the wrinkles and the lines and the frumpy old lady look!
