And with this article, we would like to bring you some helpful tips and suggestions on how someone can look younger even at (or after) 50. Take a look.

Look Younger Even in Your 50s

The point here isn’t to literally turn the hands of time but it wouldn’t hurt to age gracefully. Instead of opting for risky cosmetic surgeries and spending a ton on Botox injections, there are safer choices which can give your body, mind, and soul to feel younger than never before.

  • Regardless of you age, you should always wear sunscreen when you are going outside in the sun. It is said that the harmful UV rays from the sun is one of the main culprits for wrinkles, fine lines, and age spots on our skin.
  • This one is for the ladies – Applying makeup is a good way to hide wrinkles, uneven skin tone, blemishes, and age spots instantly. However, applying the makeup in the correct way is important here. You don’t want to overdo it; just enough so that the harsh wrinkles on your face can be concealed.
  • As we age, our skin decreases the quantity of moisture it retains. Which is why, you will see more dryness in our skin as we get older. As a result, the appearance of wrinkles and saggy skin is clearly visible. Hence, apply a facial moisturizer and a night cream to keep the skin vital.
  • Try changing the color of your hair. Although, choose lighter shades as they help in making you look younger.
  • Now if you like the gray-hair look, instead of opting for your natural gray hair color, there are other shades of gray which you can get. But remember, do avoid a drastic change in your appearance as you don’t want to overdo it.
  • Apart from applying night cream and facial moisturizer, drinking adequate amount of water each day is also required. You need to hydrate your skin from within as well.
  • Believe it or not, rest is one of the sweetest and most peaceful techniques to looking young. Everyday, the human body goes through a series of physical activities and stress. This only makes us feel tired from the inside, but it also shows on the outside. When we sleep, our cells are in fact repairing the DNA damage that may have been caused from the day.
  • Pamper yourself from time to time. Sometimes, giving yourself a break from your hectic schedule can do you good. Get a nice, relaxing facial, body massage, body scrub, manicure, and pedicure. (Yes, even for men). With these different treatments, the outer, dead skin is removed and you look and feel rejuvenated.
  • For our next tip, we suggest you to change your hairstyle. For this, you need to visit your hairstylist and seek his/her advice. Many times, when you try certain hairstyles that suit the dimensions of your face, you can literally cut down years off your face.
  • Is your current weight ideal for your height and age? Depending on your height and build, you should try to keep a healthy weight for yourself. Obesity is one of the biggest reasons an individual can look older than his/her age. You can beat this dilemma if you tried and focused on losing weight. Consult your doctor and fitness trainer to see if you should lose a considerable amount of weight.
  • Practice meditation and yoga. The different yoga poses are known to turn back the hands of time. Yoga and meditation not only benefit your body from the inside, they also provide you with much-needed peace and tranquility in life.
  • Having an active lifestyle is the key to looking young forever. When you’re always on the go, your body doesn’t get enough time to become lethargic or ‘old’. Keep yourself active by doing different exercises or even physical activities like outdoor sports.
  • And finally, watch what you eat. Eating healthy is definitely important. As we age, the elasticity and strength in our skin gives in, and the production of collagen decreases. Which is why, you should consult your doctor and a dietitian that will make an ideal food pyramid or chart especially for you.

There are no secret tips or tricks on how to look younger at (or after) 50. With proper care and nutrition for your mind, body, and soul, you can look in the mirror and be proud of yourself. Live life in a more positive way and everything else will follow suit.

Pre-wedding Beauty Ideas

You have the stone on your finger, and you just can’t wipe that smile from your face. Since the date has been set, would you say you are getting fixated on how you will look on the day? Stress not. Here is a rundown of everything that you should deal with. Experience it, and dump the frenzy.

We’ve heard it said enough times that the wedding day is the most important day in the life of any girl/ woman, so I will refrain from saying that! But this is also the day when you have to look your ravishing best for the shutterbugs, because, 40 years down the line, you still want the oohs and aahs to flow, when your children and grandchildren see you in all your glorious beauty. These pictures are supposed to represent one of the happiest times of your life, so how would you like it if you saw your pictures with a big pimple on your cheek?! Or your hair a mess? Will not do! So, let’s see what all things must you take care of, to look your best on your wedding day, so that the photos will do what they are supposed to do in a few years time – make you smile, and wistful, and remember the magic and love and help you live it again, without any blemishes.

Areas to Cover…

Health Care
Your inner health will affect your outer appearance. Eat healthy, and you will have a blemish free skin and a glowing complexion. Avoid all junk food and soft drinks and eat healthy, balanced meals leading up to your wedding. Follow a detox program, to clean up your system from the inside out. Get your teeth leveled and whitened if you so wish, but do that a month prior to the day. If you are taking some medicines, consult your doctor before you stop the course. My pre-wedding diet advice would be, sleep and eat well, so that you look great and the chances of you falling ill are reduced.

Hair Care
Depending on the gown you choose, decide your hair length, style and cut at least 2 – 3 months prior to your wedding. Get regular hair spa treatments to give your hair that shine, and make them luxurious. If you are planning to straighten out your hair, or put them through any other permanent treatment, it is advisable to do so a month before the wedding. If you want to color it/ add highlights then do it a week after getting them straightened, so that there is some time for the hair to get used to new things. If you put your hair through treatments in quick succession, you may end up damaging it, making it look dry and limp on your wedding day. Decide the hairstyle you are going to wear on the day, and see if it suits the type of gown you have chosen. Consult with your hairdresser, as to which style will suit your face structure best.

Skin and Nail Care
Your skin is an indicator of your health, so it has to be at its glowing best on your day! Remember to moisturize your skin daily after your bath. One of the best pre-wedding beauty tips that I can share with you is, apply the moisturizer within a minute of having your bath/ shower, so that it locks the moisture in your skin and makes it look healthy, young and gives it a glow. It works much better than applying the moisturizer on dry skin. Also, clean your face, hands and feet thoroughly before sleeping, and apply a good overnight cream. Hands, feet and nails are equally important, specially if you are going to take close up shots of your rings, hands held, and the like. Also, if you are going to wear heels, you do not want to display chipped, and unkempt nails. If you are going with clear nails, good for you, but if you are going to have them painted, best to do so two days prior to the wedding.

Body Care
Body care is of equal importance in the pre-wedding beauty regime. If you are prone to acne on your back, then get a scrubbing brush/ loofah and exfoliate your body regularly, maybe every alternate day. Exfoliate all the exposed as well as most covered parts, like your hands, legs, armpits, etc. It helps in reducing the tan, and also exposes the healthy and plump cells by getting rid of all the dead cells, to give you a fresh and glowing look. This is especially important if you are planning to wear a backless/ strapless gown.

Facials
Facials are top ranking in pre-wedding beauty care checklist. Start getting regular facials around six months prior to the big day, and get one every three weeks if you can. Don’t overdo it though, or you may end up looking like you had a layer of skin taken off your face. Facials will help your tired and tanned skin look cleaner and fresher, and give your face a glow. Also, they will remove the layers of dirt that have accumulated on your face over time. Strictly stop facials a week before your wedding. And stick to products that suit you. Don’t test any new tempting products, anytime shortly before your wedding.

Waxing and Threading
Waxing and threading should be done regularly. If you haven’t tried either of these things before, but want to do it for your wedding, then I suggest that you start early, to let your skin get used to all the pulling it will be subjected to. Wax four days before the wedding. The redness and rash, if any, will take a day to settle down, and you would not like your photos to look like you had a bad rash or sunburn. Threading your eyebrows and upper lips should ideally be done a week before the actual date of the wedding, so that in case you need to correct the shape of your brows, you have time to do it.

Manicures and Pedicures
Get manicures and pedicures monthly, for a few months before your wedding. It will take care of the dryness and tanning of your hands and feet, and make them soft and beautiful. Getting manicures and pedicures on a regular basis will help in moisturizing your hands and feet, and will get rid of dry, scaly skin, specially from your heels, and tips of your fingers and toes. Get your final pedicure and manicure a couple of days before your wedding, and you will surely notice the change. If you are not comfortable with long nails, then a french manicure will not please you. Go for the simple shaping of short nails, and apply a clear coat of polish over it, to make them shine.

Makeup
Whatever makeup you choose to do, make sure it suits your skin type and skin tone. Do not try new products, as you do not know whether they will suit your skin or not. Also, keep in mind your outfit and the shades in it, and see that the makeup doesn’t clash with the outfit. Make it subtle, highlight your best features and leave the rest as natural as possible. Do not go over the top in an attempt to look ravishing, as you may end up looking like an overdone doll. Try to keep the makeup as neutral, subtle and light as possible. Use waterproof makeup, to avoid smudging and running in case you tend you sweat a lot. You are happy, and that in itself is going you make you look pretty and gorgeous. The makeup is just to complement your natural looks, not alter them.

When, What, How…? The Checklist

…12-14 Weeks Before
This is when your facials, detox diet, and waxing/ pedicures and manicures should start. Get the facials every 3 weeks, and the waxing, manicures and pedicures monthly. Start exfoliating.

…8-10 Weeks Before
Choose your hairstyle, makeup, and jewelry according to your wedding gown, and see that they match and complement each other. If you have doubts about any of them, now is the time to change it. Don’t put it off for later.

…6 Weeks Before
Opt for massages and hair spa treatments and indulge yourself. Get your teeth whitened if you’d like and the Botox. Do not leave these things for later or you may end up regretting it.

…4-5 Weeks Before
If you want to straighten your hair and color/ highlight it, now is the time. This is also the best time to get your hair trimmed, so that the split ends are taken care of, and your hair looks fuller and healthier.

…1-2 Weeks Before
Whatever treatments you had started, this is when you should stop almost all of them. In the last couple of weeks, do not try any new cosmetics. Make sure the dress fits perfectly and there are no tucks required, and the jewelry is polished and shining.

…2-3 Days Before
Time for the spray tan, as well as the final waxing, pedicure and manicure. No more facials. Also, have a dress rehearsal with the hairstyle and makeup, so that you know exactly how you are going to look when you walk down that aisle, to the love of your life.

…On the Wedding Day
Exfoliate gently with a face scrub and moisturize. Do not do anything else or try anything new, in your last minute panic. Leave the beauty care in the hands of your beautician and stylist. Just relax, be ready a couple of hours before the wedding, and enjoy your day.

Important DOs and DON’Ts

  • If you are thinking about including Botox in your pre-wedding beauty regime, I’d recommend you do it at least a month before the wedding, so that your muscles get used to it, and settle down. Also, that will help in case of wrong placement of the Botox – stiff and droopy lips on the D-Day? Oh, the horror!
  • If you can pay for it, laser treatments to get rid of body hair are better than waxing regularly. Start 6 – 8 months prior to your wedding and get monthly sessions. This way, you will not have to worry about your hair growing back constantly, besides which you won’t be required to shave or wax on your honeymoon!
  • If your skin is very much acne prone, then you may want to start the facials a little earlier, say 9 months before the wedding. The microdermabrasion facials help reduce acne to a great extent.
  • If you have been using any contraceptive, consult the doctor before going off it. It may cause hormonal changes, and you may break out in acne or suffer some other side effects, if you do it a month or two before the wedding. Ask your doctor the effects of going off the contraceptive, and also when you should do it.
  • If and when you are buying your own makeup instead of using the professional’s, try on the makeup on makeup-free skin before you buy it.
  • Do not get any facials in the week leading up to your wedding. In fact, do not try anything new a week before the wedding.
  • If you want a fake tan, then do not try to get one at home, lest you turn out looking orange, or black on your wedding day. Go to a tanning parlor at least 3 – 4 days prior to your wedding.
  • Make sure you match your makeup with your dress, and that it is not clashing with your outfit.
  • Do not try any new hair or face products for a week before your wedding. Also, do not get a haircut within the month leading to your wedding. Remember, if you do not like it, there is no way you can grow out your hair again by the time you walk down the aisle.
  • Do not go on any crash diets in the months leading up to your wedding, specially if you have already chosen your outfit. If your weight rises or drops, then alternately, you will either be gasping for breath (and not in a nice way!) or clutching your dress so that it doesn’t slip. So, no diets please.
  • Drink plenty of water. It helps. It’s good for your health, skin, hair, complexion, etc.
  • And of course, a couple of days before your wedding, put on your dress, to see that it still fits perfectly, and that no tucks and stitches are required. If it doesn’t fit on the day, you’ll end up feeling really hassled.
  • If you happen to wake up on the big day with a zit beginning to peep out from your face, don’t panic and try to pick it. LEAVE IT ALONE. Apply a concealer or makeup and cover it up as much as you can. If you tease it, the entire area around it will turn red, and it will be tougher to cover with makeup.
  • Get your hair and makeup in place, two hours before the photo sessions start, so that there is no last minute hurry.

Lastly, it’s your wedding, so obviously there is going to be a mad rush heading to the D-Day! But if you can, then try out those weekend or weeklong spa treatments, or the various massage packages a month or so before you’re due to get married. You’ll get time to yourself, and it’ll help you relax. Remember, no stress plus good health equals glowing skin. Wish you all the luck for the future!

Biggest Beauty Myths

Have you ever considered what number of these magnificence tips are really no doubt? On the off chance that you do everything right, would your skin really be sans spot? Would the wrinkles simply vanish one day? Would your skin begin resembling your most loved superstar? All things considered, there’s stand out approach to discover…

The common perception of beauty is a symmetrical face with glowing flawless skin. The bombardment of advertisements selling beauty products, magazines encouraging beauty treatments and dishing out home remedies to every cosmetic issue, add to the growing confusing.

Over the years, we have all come to believe that a beauty regime depends on what we eat, when we eat, what we drink, how much we drink, how long we sleep, quality of sleep, and more routine activities we perform involuntarily throughout the day. However, if one began to measure every little act, living would be a big math problem.

All those magazines, websites, advertisements, and advice cannot be true. To put it simply, some work and some don’t. And you have to know which one works for you. So, here at Buzzle we’ve listed down some of the beauty myths that you should not believe in for various reasons. Find out what these are, to avoid the unnecessary trouble they might cause later in life.
Myth: Varicose Veins are Caused by Crossing Legs.

Fact: We would do everything in our capacity to have those spotless toned legs. A hint of a defacement and we would be stuck with paranoia. So when someone tells you that sitting with cross legs can give you varicose veins, you would definitely do everything to avoid sitting that way. But, did you know that the most common reason for varicose veins is standing for long hours and not sitting? So, if anything else, sitting with crossed legs is definitely not giving you these spider veins on your legs. As you stand for long hours, the vascular network needs to work extra to pump blood from your legs to the heart. At times, the valves that ensure flow of blood from the vessels get flooded with blood causing the veins to pop up. Genetic predisposition, pregnancy, injury to the affected area, obesity, and age, are some of the reasons for those unsightly veins. So ladies, do not forget your etiquette while sitting, because you have nothing to worry about!

Myth: Pulling out gray hair causes more to appear.

Fact: For some, graying occurs prematurely and to a few it happens at a later stage in life. Growing gray hair is a natural process which is bound to happen to all of us at some time or the other. Many believe that pulling out a gray hair makes you grow two gray hair in the same spot. If this were true wouldn’t baldness be cured by now? So, when you actually pull out a gray hair a new one grows. Its color purely depends on whether you have a premature graying tendency or not.

Myth: Drinking water is good enough to hydrate your skin.

Fact: Drinking water does keep your body hydrated and healthy. It keeps your bodily functions in check and regularized. But that does not mean your skin is going to be hydrated. Skin requires some amount of oil too, to maintain its glow and smooth surface. So keep those creams handy for topical application to replenish the lost moisture.

Myth: No Cream or Potion Can Erase Wrinkles.

Fact: With age your body lessens the production of collagen and elastin which keep your skin smooth. Thus, your skin begins to sag diminishing its once youthful appearance. Most creams and lotions which promise smooth wrinkle-free look only to improve the appearance of those lines on your skin. The effect of the wrinkle cream depends on the type of active ingredient in it. However, the fact remains that there is no magic potion for getting rid of those wrinkles. Accept them with grace, for they are signs of wisdom!

Myth: Shaving will make your hair grow back darker and thicker.

Fact: Razors have a bad reputation amongst women. Although many would agree that they are convenient to use, the popular belief about them is that shaving makes hair grow thicker. Hair growth is always wider at the root and thinner towards its tip. So, when a razor cuts the hair at the root, it cuts out the widest part. When the hair starts to grow back, the wider part grows, making it a bit coarser. The initial growth of the thicker shaft makes one feel as though the hair grows back thicker than normal. A useful tip while getting a clean shave would be to go against the hair growth and get a closer shave.

Myth: Creams can get rid of stretch marks.

Fact: Several creams in the market promise you that they will erase your stretch marks. It is easy to believe in those advertisements, fall for their gimmicks and be terribly dismayed. Stretch marks are a result of skin expansion in a shorter time, for example during pregnancy or a phase of rapid weight gain. This breaks down the elastin fibers and collagen, leaving marks on your skin. As stretch marks are formed below the top layer of the skin, most creams cannot reach there. Hence, the truth remains that stretch marks caused by weight loss or gain of weight, cannot generally be reversed.

Myth: Wearing nail polish all the time will make your nails turn yellow.

Fact: No. Wearing nail paint is not going to turn your nails permanently yellow. When you wear a color on your nails for a long time the porous nature of your nails quickly absorbs the pigment, leaving a stain on them. Also, your nails need oxygen to stay and grow healthy. Layering them with paint prevents them from getting any oxygen. Thus, they turn yellow. However, this is a temporary phenomenon.

Other Popularly Believed Beauty Myths:

Myth: Only lotions labeled as ‘night creams’ can be applied at night.
Fact: The difference between a daytime cream and the nighttime cream is that the former has some amount of SPF, while the latter is devoid of one.

Myth: A few skin care products can work like Botox.
Fact: Only Botox can work like Botox. No skin care product can reach the targeted area and hence, cannot work like Botox injections.

Myth: Curling eye lashes with mascara on them can break them.
Fact: In fact a layer of mascara on your lashes prevents any kind of damage to the hair.

Myth: Your skin gets used to the products and eventually stops showing any results.
Fact: Your skin never adapts to any beauty product. In fact the tingling sensation you feel when you first apply certain products, it your skin’s way of saying don’t do it.

Myth: 8 hours of sleep can help me lose weight.
Fact: While it is true that if you sleep for eight hours you will not eat, it is also true that you will not burn calories. Additionally, if you eat unhealthy food after waking up, sleeping is not going to reverse the effect. Thus, sleeping for eight hours only refreshes you.

The effects of beauty products are very temporary. They may last from a few hours to a few days, or just till the time that you are using them. Much of your healthy skin can be attributed to components of your lifestyle, which are exercise, diet, sleep patterns and healthcare. Your skin mirrors what happens inside your body and how well you treat it. Thus, to maintain the glow of a flawless complexion pay attention to what’s happening with your body.
