Youthfulness means many different things to different people. However, the masses can agree that there are several different factors involved in determining a person’s age just by looking at them. Age does not just show in the face, but in all parts of the body as well. However, the most common areas that determine a person’s estimated age would be the eyes, face, hair, and breasts. Erasing the years does not necessarily mean undergoing some expensive and dangerous procedure. Instead, this article will show you how to eliminate ten years from your appearance instantly by referring to the youthful face and features of a child.

Eyes

The eyes are described as the window to one’s soul. What they show the person peering into them can vary greatly depending on their perception. Thinking of youthfulness, the images of a young child often comes into mind. The eyes of a child are often described as doe-eyed or wide-eyed. To achieve this look, use a lighter concealer around the eyes. It is also a good idea to use a light, sheer eye shadow with a hint of glitter; this gives the appearance of a bright and wider eye. Adding volume to lashes while lengthening them, adds more luster and youthfulness. Since the eyebrows frame the eyes, making certain they are correctly made up is imperative. Thinking back to the face of a child, one would notice full and lush eyebrows. A skinny brow adds age to the face. Filling in eyebrows with brown powder and an angled brush completes the process of eye rejuvenation.

Face

 

Botox and face-lifts can reap some disappointing results, to say the least. Not only can a bad procedure leave a gaping hole in the checking account, but it can also leave the unfortunate candidate disfigured for life. In this case, the cons outweigh the pros by an overwhelming margin. It is much easier and risk-free to care for aging skin, as it is to spend thousands of dollars reversing the damage. Using moisturizers, which contain elastin, restores the elasticity of the skin and aids in reversing the aging process. Applying the same concealer used on the eyes, to the corners of the mouth and areas of the face fine lines appear, decreases the visibility of fine lines. Finally, adding a subtle touch of blush to the cheeks give a child-like appearance of innocence.

Hair

The way a woman wears her hair plays an intricate role in the age she appears to be. Wearing hair pulled back and pinned in a bun may be a good idea for younger women who want to be perceived as mature and responsible, but does very little for the woman already at that age. Think of a small child with long, flowing, full carefree curls. Now think of that same child wearing a bob or hair pulled back into a bun. Which child image in mind appears to be younger? Softly tousled curls are more common in little girls than any other style. Try wearing an armpit to mid-back length soft curl style to knock a few years off your appearance.

Breasts

Not every woman has the good fortune to possess “teenage breasts” later in life. In fact, after a certain age, a woman’s bra becomes her best friend. It is a known fact that 80% of women saunter around wearing ill-fitting bras. Not only does this affect a woman’s posture, but also gives the appearance of an aged bosom that has seen better days. Start by finding the correct bra size. Whether drooping or bulging, wearing a bad fitting bra ages a woman more than any other part type of fashion faux pas. This chart provided by LadiesChoiceMasectomySupplies.com, would assist in properly fitting a bra.

Follow these steps for an instant boost in confidence and ten years off your appearance, guaranteed!
