No one wants to be 21 again. Let’s face it, by the time you get to your mid-thirties, you’ve matured, your life has moved on and you have stopped caring about what people think about you. Being 21 again means being a hormone casserole in a bowl of uncertainty about the future. The insecurities, the nights out, the hunting for a husband; we all prefer that part of life to be right behind us.
However, we wouldn’t mind LOOKING 21 again. Being 21 again means a better metabolism, faster recovery from a night out with the girls and the energy that means you leaped out of bed looking fresh instead of dragging yourself out of it with pillow marks on your face. Wanting to recapture your youth is a totally different feeling from wanting to be 21 again. You want to look younger, not be younger, and with these tips, you can get there much quicker.
Get More Sleep
Okay, so at this juncture of your life it’s very likely you have a family and a job that takes up most of your time. Sleep is a commodity you just don’t have and it’s as precious as diamonds. Getting the right level of sleep is often the best way to feel young right now. Promise yourself six weeks of eight hours of sleep a night and then see how you feel. The glowing skin should give you an idea of how sleep has helped.
Vanity…Well, Not Really!
A little nip here, a little tuck there: cosmetic surgery is absolutely an option for you if you want an instant youthful look. There’s a big difference between trying to look your age and trying to hop in a time machine. Be smart before you choose to go under the knife.
Choose Good Food
Age-proofing your meals is a real thing. You may have been able to sink the burgers without side effects when you were in your early 20’s, but the truth is that your metabolism ages with you – and that shows. Choose good foods that give you a youthful look and make you feel refreshed on the inside. Once you feel good on the inside, the outside will shine.
Get Your Sweat On
It doesn’t look very ladylike to sweat at the gym – we prefer the term ‘lightly perspire’. However, you should be grateful for the beads of sweat. These are sweating out the toxins from your body while you work out and the toxins are the ones that make you look pale, haggard and wrinkly. Working out has never looked better!
There’s nothing wrong with wanting to recapture your youth, but when you choose to go about it be smart. Choose a youthful look that works for you rather than one that makes you look like you’re trying to look young. Beauty comes from within, so the more positive you are, the happier and more relaxed you will look.
