Eight Tips on How to Look Younger Than Your Age

People say it’s the quality, not the length, of life that matters. But it matters if you have a longer, and at the same time, good quality life. You can make yourself healthy and look younger than your age. Here are eight tips that will do just that.

Although genetically some people tend to age faster than others, here are some tips my wife and I learned which we personally applied. Whenever my wife and I meet other people, they always thought we’re five or even ten years younger than our age. We attribute this to things that we practice at home. And these tips are all natural or doable without spending a lot on those expensive products that sometimes don’t work anyway.

The following tips are mainly behavioral approaches to make you look younger than your age. So there’s no need to apply those costly additions to your face or body. I provided a useful link to back up each tip.

  1. Eat a Nutritious Diet

    Nutritious diet means less of junk or fatty foods. Eat as much fruit as you can but avoid too much acidic fruit like pineapple as it can damage the protective coating of your teeth. Fruits contain lots of antioxidants.

  2. Drink Lots of Water

    You hear it all the time. The standard water intake is 8 glasses a day, not the cold one because this could upset your stomach. Also, you should not drink too much right after a meal.

  3. Avoid exposing yourself to too much sunshine.

    Especially on hot summer days, the heat of the sun can ruin your skin. Although sunscreens are usually recommended, it’s better to be on the safe side. There may be undesirable ingredients in it. Find a shade.

  4. Stop Smoking (if you do)

    Smoking hastens skin aging. Nicotine adds years to your appearance. Scientific studies point out that even one puff of smoke can produce trillions of free radicals in the lungs. And radicals are known to irritate body cells, increasing your risk of cancer. Besides, this can also pollute the atmosphere and make your breath foul.

  5. Work with the type of work that you like.

    Find a work that satisfies you. Overwork is also unproductive so you also need time to relax, don’t take your life too seriously. Whatever you do, anyway, you have only at most an optimal of 8 hours a day. If you’re after money, who will spend lots of them when you leave this world. Gain insight from the words of Solomon in Ecclesiastes 2:21, “For there is a man whose labor is with wisdom, knowledge and skill; yet he must leave his heritage to a man who has not labored for it…”. We only need enough to live. Money is not everything.

  6. Get Good Sleep

    Sleep normalizes our bodies functioning. Sleep repairs the body’s cells thereby invigorating them and ready for the next day’s activity.

  7. Keep Your Stomach Trim

    Exercise but don’t overdo it. Brisk walking and running (if you are younger, i.e., in your 20’s or early 30’s) will benefit a lot to your appearance. Our pores get clogged if we do not allow it to excrete dirt from our bodies through perspiration. One way to judge if you’re doing fine is your breathing. If you can breath deeply and your stomach does not bulge, then you are alright. Body frames differ so you cannot really expect to look like the slim ones if you have a larger body frame.

  8. Have a Positive Outlook

    Many people live longer because they have a positive attitude towards life. If you have problems, these are at best transient. Most of your cares can be resolved through time as time heals wounds. Prayer and meditation are one of the best remedies. I applied a biblical approach to my problems and they were gone. Cast your burdens upon the Lord, and He will give you rest (Matthew 11:28-30).

I hope you find this useful and have a longer, more productive life plus of course will make you look younger than your age and live life fully.

    Hi, a nice article about maintaining young look…

    But to tell u da truth my actual age is 25 years 3 months (as of today), but nobody can recognize my actual age unless i tell them. They think me as if I’m only 19-20 yrs old, even my college lecturers say too…also my body is slim n cute looking face

    The reason i feel so young is i never drink alcohol, smoke cigarette and very aware of taking anything which I have no idea, n also I rarely move out without any purpose…

    I became more confident after reading this article…thanks a lot

    Hello Nimmy, I believe one good way to start off is to have regular exercise. This will make your muscles tight and supple. A vegan diet would likewise help. And of course, note and practice the other tips too.

    Hello Nimmy, a vegan, not vagan, is someone who eats no animal or dairy products at all; just pure vegetables and fruits.
