Ageing is a fact of life, but how you approach ageing can make a huge difference to the impact it makes to your appearance. Obviously, a daily regime of anti-ageing products should be your first port of call for keeping the signs of ageing at bay but there are several other things which have an impact too – here’s five of them:

Your Hair Colour

Grey is all the rage these days and if you’re lucky enough to have a ntaurally platinum shine to your hair, then you’re a lucky lady. However, some colours have a tendency to fade rather than go truly grey, and this washed-out look can make you look far older than you really are. Speak to your hairdresser about reviving your colour or going for something completely different which flatters your face.

Unflattering Clothing

Often, as we age and our bodies change shape, we can feel like we no longer know how to dress to suit our bodies and wearing unflattering clothing can be very ageing. Opt for fitted rather than baggy and try to avoid pastel colours or chintzy prints. Classic items which don’t follow trends are a great place to start and will last longer than items which will likely go out of fashion as soon as they come in.

Your Posture

Be it a lack of confidence, back problems or something else, lots of people have terrible posture and there’s nothing that will make you look more like an old lady than walking with a stoop. Try to correct your posture by ensuring that you wear good shoes and sleeping on a supportive mattress, and if you’re still struggling then it might be time to see your GP for a referal for some physio.

Super Skinny Eyebrows

Back in the late nineties and early noughties, when we were plucking our eyebrows into oblivion, we never imagined thick brows would be back in fashion like they are now, but it’s a fact, and super skinny brows now look very dated. Growing back your existing brows might not be possible if you’ve overplucked them for years but there are options available like microblading, which can give your eyebrows the fullness they lack.

Dated Make-Up

As with your hair, often your complexion loses pigmentation and your skin appears lighter, which means that your usual make up may no longer suit you. We highly suggest visiting a make-up counter of a brand that you love for a consultation on which colours suit the new you – and don’t forget a delicate make-up remover to protect your skin!
