7 Subtle Details That Will Magically Make You Look 10 Years Younger

year ago

Time flies, but we can reverse it if we go about it the right way. It turns out it’s quite easy to look young even without plastic surgery. Apart from leading a healthy lifestyle, there are also some not-so-obvious tricks that can mess with people’s perception of your real age.

Bright Side shares 7 secrets that will shave years off your age.

1. Wearing jeans

Jeans, especially ripped ones, make you look young and fashionable (provided you combine them well). They give off a casual vibe and make you look less serious and official. Besides, they also make you look taller and thinner. It’s better to go for a modern cut rather than mid-calf or Bermuda style.

2. Bangs

Bangs are total game changers when it comes to hiding your age. They perfectly hide forehead wrinkles and frame your face. They also make your face look smaller.

It’s easy to “tailor” bangs to your own needs as well. Parted or long bangs suit all face shapes. Angular bangs contour your face, and side ones soften facial features.

3. White sneakers

White sneakers are perfect when it comes to creating a youthful look. Another advantage is that it’s easy to combine them with clothes and no matter how old you are, you’ll always look great. You can wear them with jeans, dresses, skirts, leggings and whatever else you have in your wardrobe.

4. Red lipstick

One study found that wearing red lipstick increases the contrast between facial features. The participants with rosy cheeks and lips were thought to look more youthful. The thing is, the redness of the lips decreases, along with the brightness of our eyes and eyebrows, as we age. On the contrary, our skin gets darker.

Luckily, it’s easy to correct that with just a tube of red lipstick.

5. Bob haircut

Our hair thins over time, and simply cutting off a few inches already adds more volume. Classic bob gives your face a lift, raises your cheekbones, and makes your jawline look higher. Chin-length hair makes a thin face appear oval, and women over 50 should go for very short bob haircuts.

6. Glasses with black frames

Rimless glasses make you look older and aren’t suitable for an aging complexion. Glasses with a thick black frame modernize your look in seconds. Interestingly, they go perfectly with gray hair. You can also try wearing oversized frames to hide wrinkles and divert all the attention to your glasses.

7. Thick eyebrows

Light eyebrows don’t provide any facial contrast — they make you look faded and tired. Bushy brows are good at making your face look fresh and young. So ditch those tweezers and get some coconut oil. You can also pencil in your eyebrows while you’re waiting for them to grow out.

What tricks never fail to make you appear younger? What things instantly make you look 10 years older?
