While no one has ever beaten father time, there are some things you can do to make it look like you’re winning the race.
Some simple habit changes can eliminate tell tale aging signs that make you look older than you really are.
The sun is one of the primary, and most influential, sources of skin damage. It’s also quite easy to protect yourself from skin damage by using sunscreen and opting for shade when available.
Whiten Your Teeth
Yellow teeth are at the top of the list for making you look older than you are. A simple whitening, once or twice a year, can shave years off your smile.
Avoid Re-Staining Your Teeth
Whitening your teeth isn’t a set it and forget it, kind of fix. Your teeth will turn back to yellow if you continue consuming foods and drinks known to cause staining. Cut back on the barbecue sauce, soy sauce, red whine, coffee and colas to help keep your teeth white.
Moisturize Your Face
This is a daily habit for most women, but men are notoriously anti-moisturizer. It’s just not manly enough. It’s a pretty simple, three minute, routine that can fight back fine lines and help prevent premature aging of the skin.

Update Your Wardrobe
You’ll want to update your wardrobe but avoid shooting for styles you see twenty year olds wearing. Think classy, and stylish. Choosing the wrong style and trend for your age, can actually make you look older and make you stick out of the crowd like a sore thumb.
Take Care Of Your Hair
Damaged and dull hair can add several years to your appearance. Avoid heat styling your hair, and try not to brush your hair immediately after a shower when it’s still wet.
Reduce The Sodium
Water retention and bloat will make you look puffy, especially around the eyes where it really matters. Unfortunately, salt has been added excessively to most processed foods to add flavor so choose your meals wisely.
Apply Hand Lotion Daily
While most focus on the fine lines of the face, there’s another age enhancer that flies under the radar until it’s too late. Much like the skin around your eyes, your hands can make you look much older than you really are. Make a daily habit of preventative moisturizing, and don’t wait until they begin to add years to your true age.
The increased circulation is good for the skin, and people tend to look older as they gain weight. Losing 10-20 pounds can make you look and feel significantly younger.
