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.

Thanbk You Lucille, for the tips to look better.
Demi Moore is the best. – I adore Demi !!!
Hi Lucille, Thanks for the tips, i will definitely try them, i know myself what a big impact wigs can make and finding the right style and color is important, it is also good to get someone elses opinion too. Natural hair looks far better than synthetic and is worth paying the extra dollar for.
All for now, Lace Satin

Sorry Lucille,the pictures of women in your blog did nothing for me, so no vote.
You forgot one detail > excercise.
Breast development slowed,but getting a fantastic butt.
I was asked in my pharmacy yesterday before a free blood pressure test,if I was between 35&45,I surprise the woman by
saying I was nearly 60.
One question; is there a herb to slow down the testerone, so
the estrogen can work better.
Saw palmetto slows down testosterone. Yes, exercise is important, too!
Thank you for the new advices. I would probably add to this list Julia Roberts and Enya.They are really beautiful.
I didn’t get to include my favorite gal over 40. I really like Kim Cattrall followed by Sarah Palin in today times and Doris Day was tops in past times. Just for the what it’s worth department. Have a super day all!
Love and hugs,
Yes, Kim Cattrall! I’m adding her now!
