Everyone wants to look younger, even if that just means knocking a few years off their looks. Some people choose surgical procedures or injections when they want to be more youthful, but there are more natural ways that don't involve going under the knife or needle in order to turn back the clock.

Remove Excess Hair

While removing hair is up to you, there are several options to facilitate the process. When you want a semi-permanent or permanent option, it usually comes down to electrolysis versus laser hair removal and visiting LaserAll, Colorado's top laser clinic for laser services will help you make the right decision. Laser removal involves using lasers to mildly radiate the hair follicles and is semi-permanent. With electrolysis, a probe is inserted in your hair follicles and an electric current is sent through it. Electrolysis is a permanent solution since it damages the follicle beyond what your body can repair.

Take Care of Your Skin

While good skincare should ideally start in your younger years, it's never too late to start. Invest in a good moisturizer and massage it into your hands, neck, and face each night before you go to bed. That can keep your skin looking fresh, supple, and young. It doesn't take much time, but you might be amazed at how much of a difference this can make over time. Try to protect your skin from the sun to prevent age spots and wrinkles. Wear protective clothing, such as long-sleeved shirts and hats. In the morning, apply a moisturizer with sunscreen in it, even if you don't think you'll be going outside that day. Sun damage can happen at unexpected times, like when you're driving to or from work. 

Don't Forget About Your Smile

Over time, the teeth become yellowed and make you look older. Highly pigmented foods such as berries, coffee, and tea can stain your teeth a yellow or brown color. Smoking also stains your teeth. Luckily, whitening toothpaste can make your smile brighter and more radiant. If you want to treat yourself, consider having professional whitening done at your dentist's office. They can also give you tips on how to maintain your smile, including brushing after each meal and flossing every day. 

Update Your Hairstyle

Don't make the mistake of going for a style that's too youthful since it can make you look older. For example, while long hair is often associated with girls and young women, it might look out of place on middle-age women. Bobs or shoulder-length styles are often more flattering. If you want longer hair, consider getting layers to add fullness and body to your hair. If it's damaged, don't be afraid to take several inches off. Darker colors can make your face appear older, but getting highlights can help cover up any gray coming in. Whether or not you color it, you'll want to deep condition it at least once a week. Older hair tends to be drier, but the right care routine can help it look softer and fuller.
