How To Make Your Face Look Younger - Quick Fixes For A Fresh Look
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

As you look in the mirror, what is it about your face that makes you look older? If it was possible to correct those issues, you would look younger, right? To address the age-old question of how to make your face look younger, we will take a look at the things that make your face look older and ways to correct them.


An important issue to address is the frame for your face, in other words, your hair. If you have an outdated, unflattering style, it may be time to go through some magazines in search of an updated hairstyle. If you are lucky enough to have a trusted stylist, talk to her/him about an updated cut.

If you cannot afford for your stylist to color gray hair or add defining highlights, consider doing it yourself at home. At the very least, color your hair to cover those grays every 4-6 weeks.

Dull, Lifeless Complexion

A dull complexion is another sure sign of aging. By using a good facial scrub at least once a week, you will notice your skin come back to life. You can also use a skin revitalizing mask to give your skin a wonderful treat.

Healthy skin is soft and has a glow to it. When dead skin cells accumulate on your face, it will lead to an older-looking, lackluster complexion.

If you want to add a little more pizzazz to your complexion, use a little bronzing powder or blush.

The "Tired" Look

Along with the dull complexion, you may notice an overall "tired" look to your face.

If possible, get more rest. Another quick fix is to drink more water, which will naturally flush away toxins in your system, which will give you a less tired appearance.

If you can do it, try to cut down on your caffeine intake, which tends to restrict circulation. The better your circulation, the better your skin will look.

It cannot hurt to take some skin-healthy vitamins such as vitamin A, B-complex, C, D and K.

Enlarged Pores

As we get older, the pores on our face get bigger. This is due to the decrease in collagen, resulting in the decrease of elasticity in our skin. Past sun damage and even heredity play a factor in the size of pores, but they do get bigger with age.

This can be corrected by adopting a good skin care regime. There is nothing better for your skin then using a gentle cleanser and moisturizer, in addition to a facial scrub to get rid of those dead skin cells blocking up the sebaceous glands and pores.

Keeping your pores clear is important not only to reduce the size of them, but also to prevent outbreaks of blackheads and full-blown acne.

Uneven Skin Tone

As the years go by, you may notice an increased number of blemishes (such as freckles) and a more uneven appearance to your skin.

Once again, past over-exposure to the sun may be a contributing factor. It could also be due to a shift in hormone levels, due to pregnancy or menopause.

Red or blotchy skin will usually take care of itself once the top layer of skin is shed, unless you have rosecea or other more serious problem. However, deeper brown pigmentation can be a longer-lasting issue than blotchy skin.

The fix to this issue calls for exfoliation. A good cleaning and exfoliating will help turn over the healthier layer of skin underneath, thus diminishing those blemishes and blotches more quickly.

Lines and Wrinkles

Who said that lines give us character? I assure you it was not someone trying to look younger! Inevitably, lines and wrinkles will show up all over your face. From your forehead right down to your neck, they will appear and then deepen over time.

By taking your vitamins and making sure to follow a good skin care program, you will be making great strides in keeping lines and wrinkles at bay. You want to use a good skin cream that supports the rebuilding of collagen in your skin, and one that contains antioxidants to slow down free radical damage, which attacks the healthy cells we want to keep.

Sagging Skin

When you put it all together and then throw sagging skin into the mix, you can see just why we tend to look older than our years.

The sagging skin on eyelids (hoods), jowls, jawline and neck literally add 5 to 10 years to your appearance. Is there anyone out there who finds this to be a good look?

If not, then might I suggest facial firming exercises. You work through a series of resistance moves on various areas of your face and neck. Within a few weeks, you will notice a noticeable improvement in your complexion, in addition to a more well rested, younger look beginning to take shape.

In just 15 minutes a day, you can work the muscles in your face and neck for a toned, defined, and younger look. By using facial firming exercises and good skin care products, you will be looking great within just a few short weeks.

You can see that there are many ways as to how to make your face look younger. When you look at the issues and tackle them head on, you will be delighted at the results.

Remember that you are not just getting older, you are getting wiser about the options available for you to ward off those things that can age you.
