Many crossdressers and transgender women tell me that it was easier for them to look feminine when they were younger.
The truth is, you can look beautiful and feminine at any age!
While nobody can stop the clock, there are some simple ways to shave a few years off your appearance – if that happens to be a goal of yours.
Read on for 7 simple ways to look younger now.
1. Choose the Right Hairstyle
Hair has a huge impact on your appearance. Long hair is undoubtedly feminine, but be careful – hair that’s too long can emphasize drooping.
Consider these styles for a fresh, youthful look:
- Shoulder length hair – This length is universally flattering.
- Bangs – Bangs are cute, youthful, and perfect for hiding forehead wrinkles.
2. Add Some Sex Appeal
While you shouldn’t dress like a 20 year old, you definitely want to avoid looking like a buttoned-up old lady.
Here are some ways to add a bit of youthful sex appeal to your look:
- Wear high heels and flirtatious stockings.
- Choose clothes in sensuous fabrics – like lace, velvet, and fur.
- Show some skin (just not too much!).

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.
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.
Beautiful at every age

I agree if you show some skin it does look better. I use to cover up completely afraid of showing any masculine traits on my body but once I started to show some leg or wear a sleeveless dress, I do feel more feminine and pretty. I try not to worry so much about my body and enjoy my outfit that day.
Yes girl,you can get away with it…your arms are very good…you look fabulous.
At 73, I have been out in public since the 1960’s…guess that makes me a pioneer!!

You look classy! I would love to look as good as you do some day.
I use face cream mask, can be for hydration or for peeling, other is consuming collagen and Mg, they are great for the skin.
