Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. While that is certainly true, there are fairly universal concepts of beauty that people try to adhere to. In some culture, people cling to young for as long as possibly can, because looking young is equivalent to looking good.
So, why would you do anything to make yourself look older? The only time when people try to look older, is when they are younger. We're all aware of the irony in that situation.
Women put a lot a lot of time and effort into looking beautiful. The beauty industry is huge in United States and many women work hard every morning to make themselves look their best.
We all try our hardest to live a healthy life so we look and feel younger. Unfortunately, there are a few mistakes that you might be making that actually cause you to look older, not younger.
Curious as to what they are?
Too Much Foundation
Putting on a thick layer of foundation is obvious to anyone who spends a few moments looking at your face. Try to be minimal with your use of foundation or use a tinted moisturizer instead. The more skin people can see and the less makeup the better. Use it to enhance your well-taken-care-of skin, not cover it up.
Too Much Concealer Under The Eyes
Dark circles under the eyes are a bane of beauty for both men and women. Catching more Zzzz's and adjusting your diet can help make these look better, but oftentimes women rely on concealer to help their eyes look more youthful. As you get older, the skin under your eyes become thinner. This means you need to apply light amounts of concealer and only where there are darker areas.
Poor Hairstyle Choice
Your hairstyle, as we have mentioned before, can be a huge boot or an unfortunate detriment to your beauty. As you get older and want to continue to look young, a long and flat hairstyle will not work as well as it did in your youth. Long, flat hair exaggerates the look of a droopier, older face without bringing out the good in your face.
Too Much Stress
In our busy hectic lives, people build up a great deal of stress through the week. It's a serious beauty mistake to have lots of stress on your shoulders and not do anything about it. Skin suffers when the body and mind are under stress, and no amount of beauty tips or make-up can undo the damage caused by stress. Find a healthy way to reduce the stress in your life and keep yourself looking as beautiful as you can.
When you get your hair colored or have it go through curlers or other processes, you're doing damage to it over time. This is especially true when it is done on a weekly basis. Fried and dried hair looks as far from youthful and beautiful as a toad is from handsome. Cut back on the hair salon and you'll save money and your hair.
