Many crossdressers and TG women tell me that it was easier for them to look feminine when they were younger.
None of us can stop the clock, but that doesn’t mean you have to accept looking old!
With a little effort (and some beauty tricks), you can look feminine and beautiful at any age.
Here are 7 simple ways to look younger – right now:
1. Choose the right hairstyle
The wrong hair can age you faster than anything else.
Yes, long hair is feminine. But be careful since hair that’s too long can emphasize the downward droop of your face. Shoulder length styles are most flattering.
Bangs are another great anti-aging option. They’re cute, youthful, and are perfect for hiding forehead wrinkles.
2. Add some sex appeal
While there’s nothing worse than dressing too sexy for your age, you should avoid “old lady syndrome” at all costs.
Add a bit of youthful sex appeal by wearing high heels, choosing clothes in sensuous fabrics, or showing just a touch of skin. (Check out my previous article 3 Rules for Dressing Sexy at Any Age for more tips.)
3. Get enough sleep
We all need our beauty sleep, but the older you get, the more a lack of sleep shows up on your face.
Under-eye bags, dark circles, and sallow skin distract from a feminine look, so be sure to make sleep a priority.
4. Add some color to your wardrobe
If you usually wear a lot of black or neutral tones, try adding some bright colors to your wardrobe. Bright colors have a youthful vibe and liven up your appearance.
Just be sure to select colors that harmonize with your natural coloring. (Learn how to analyze your hair and skin tone and determine your best colors in The Ultimate En Femme Fashion Guide.)
5. Whiten your teeth
Teeth are a subtle cue of age – old teeth tend to look yellow or grey.
Whitening your teeth brightens your face and takes years off of your appearance. Try Crest White Strips for cheap and easy tooth whitening.
6. Use the right skin care products
Most skin creams don’t deliver on their “miracle in a bottle” promises. However, there are certain ingredients that have proven anti-aging benefits.
Fight wrinkles and firm your face by using products that contain one or more of the following ingredients:
- Vitamin C
- Hyaluronic acid
- Alpha hydroxy acid
- Green tea
You can find affordable products with these ingredients in any drug store.
Yes, it’s trite advice, but smiling really is the fastest way to improve your appearance!
A smile lifts the cheeks and acts like an instant facelift. Smiling also gives you a pleasant look and puts people at ease – making it easier to blend in as a woman.
