7 Ways To Make Your Face Look Younger

Everyone wants to live forever, but NO one wants to grow old. Well, at least no one wants to LOOK old! That paradox has been ingrained in most of us from the moment we feel the effects of aging!  It is a deep-rooted desire to fight the process of growing old tooth and nail. While it’s true that no one can stop maturing, there are ways that we can slow it down or at the very least look younger. Here are some suggestions.

1. You Are What You Eat

Or, you are what your body absorbs. If you are eating foods that are prohibiting you from absorbing needed nutrients, then that can most definitely be the culprit to looking older. That is why consuming a diet that is nutrient-dense is so important! Avoiding sugar is something you may also want to consider. A diet that is low in sugar keeps insulin levels low. It is important to understand that a consistent spike in insulin levels accelerates aging.

2. Sleep

It is no secret that the body needs sleep but not just any old sleep will do. Our bodies require six to eight hours of recuperative sleep every night. If we regularly deprive ourselves of that then we will begin to age faster, and it will show! If you are suffering from long-term sleep deprivation it is best that you find the root cause and resolve it because sleep is vital to our longevity.

3. Let’s Get Physical!

There is a reason why exercise is often advised when wanting to look younger. That’s because regular exercise dramatically slows the aging process in our chromosomes (thread-like structures housed in the nucleus of each cell). Our telomeres (caps placed at the end of chromosomes like shoelaces) controls aging. As we age, our telomeres become shorter. Regular exercise halts that process helping us maintain longer telomeres which are linked with a prolonged existence. Not to mention that exercise also relieves stress and anxiety which can take its toil and show on our faces prematurely aging us.

4. Water

Hydration is very important in maintaining our youthful appearance. Especially when you consider that the human adult body is 60% of water. Not only does water cool down the body but it also delivers nutrients to the cells and removes waste. Along with drinking water, you can also eat fruits and vegetables with high water content such as watermelon, grapefruit, and cucumber.

5. Protect Your Skin

The sun is a great source of Vitamin D which is necessary for our immune health and absorbing calcium, however, the sun also ages our skin due to its harmful ultraviolet (A and B) rays. These are the types of sun rays that reach the earth’s surface. UVB rays produce sunburn and are associated with the formation of most skin cancers. UVA rays are also the cause of some cancers in the skin. Finding a sunscreen with SPF 15 (at least) that protects against both rays is ideal, also wearing hats and using umbrellas will help.

6. Skin Care: Gel

Keeping in line with skin protection, there are products that can be used that can help with the skin’s appearance. If you are having difficulties with your skin texture or if you have scars, you can use natural solutions like aloe gel or coconut oil. These can be very effective in helping the skin to heal properly and natural. Also, a good scar gel will help.

7. Make-up

How you apply your make-up can make a significant difference in how young or old you appear. Advice on make-up tips can be found all over social media platforms such as Pinterest, Facebook, or YouTube. Be sure to incorporate good habits like removing your make-up and cleaning your face before going to bed and make sure that your make-up is not too old or unsanitary.

What is all comes down to is that, we have to live a healthy lifestyle. I know that we hear this advice over and over again to the point of it being a cliché; however, there is a reason why we hear it often; BECAUSE IT’S TRUE! There’s really no way around it. If we want to look youthful yet live as long as possible, we must develop good lifestyle habits.

BOY SMELLS

Sensuous, accessible and bright, Boy Smells products elevate your intimate world.

Packaged in pink and conceived beyond the gender binary, Boy Smells candles and intimate apparel make loving your identity a daily ritual.

 

In 2015, Boy Smells began as an experiment in candle-making in the Los Angeles kitchen of co-founders and real-life partners Matthew Herman and David Kien. Herman and Kien– both fashion veterans who worked in design (Herman) and product development (Kien)– began by making the things they’d want to use on a daily basis, products that were fluid and essential.

 

“We wanted to have products that were embracing masculine and feminine simultaneously in a simple and straightforward way that wasn’t overtly targeted to one gender,” the founders say. “It’s a permission to harness your power from wherever you want it.”

 

Founder-invented scents like Cinderose, a union of rose and smoke, and Gardener, a compilation of tomato vine and honeysuckle, wrap traditionally masculine scents in a prettier bouquet. Burn up expectations, release clear intentions.

 

Boy Smells candles are all developed and mixed in the founders’ home in Los Angeles with essential oils, all-natural coconut and beeswax. The candles hand-poured in a reusable glass vessel, and hand-labeled in Los Angeles, California.

 

In 2018, Boy Smells launched Boy Smells, Unmentionables their first collection of intimate apparel, a new direction in the brand’s study of closeness. Made for all genders and all sizes, Boy Smells light jersey underwear are made in Peru from luxurious Pima Cotton, and dyed with an eco-friendly process to a palette of neo-natural colors that are skin-tone adjacent and inclusive.

 

Beginning in 2019, Boy Smells will branch into apothecary, introducing a set of new products that make daily habits therapeutic and self-affirming.

 

Currently carried in over 200 retail locations worldwide, with 16 original scents, votive sets, and 9 Unmentionables styles.

Nicki Minaj × Vogue Arabia

Nicki Minaj Covers September Issue of Vogue Arabia.

A fully-fledged member of rap’s fashion royalty, Nicki Minaj, who has more than 90 million followers on Instagram, has returned following a hiatus of nearly four years to drop her fourth album, Queen. In this moment when the fashion industry discusses inclusivity, diversity, and equality, it was only fitting that the cover story was shot in New York, just a few days before the Met Gala, by an all female-team. Renowned photographer Emma Summerton was behind the lens, while the styling was done by Anna Katsanis and overseen by Vogue Arabia fashion director Katie Trotter. The hair and makeup looks were created by Kim Kimble and Sheika Daley respectively.

Aaliyah × MAC Makeup Kit

In honor of the late singer Aaliyah, fans had been petitioning MAC on change.org to release a makeup line for her. The petition gained over 26,000 signatures in the process and helped fans make their wishes into a reality. The only downside is as soon as the collection was put out on MAC’s website at 11 a.m. ET on June 20, the $250 set was sold out within an hour. The pyramid-shaped set is inspired by Aaliyah’s own makeup kit and comes with a bandana similar to the one she wore, as well as a poster of her. The eyeshadow palette is combined of different colors which include neutrals, purples, and metallics while the lipsticks include neutrals, reds, and black. There are 12 products in total that MAC Cosmetics has commemorated in her name and they have all been approved by Aaliyah’s brother Rashad Haughton prior to the official release.
