Are you still in your 20s but most people say you’re older because of your appearance? While there’s nothing wrong with looking mature, looking older than your age is not always an advantage. Better check if something makes you look older. Perhaps, you can improve how you dress or do your hair. There may be a number of physical and facial features you have that are making you look older. Check the following:
Years of exposure to the sun could cause the support structure of your pores to sag, making your face look full of wider pores. Most people associate large pores to the elderly, so having large pores could make you three years older than your real age. Good thing, there are a lot of cosmetic products and procedures that you can use to exfoliate your skin and reduce and tighten your pores.
Generally, crow’s feet, or the wrinkle-like lines at the outer corner of an eye, comes naturally for people aged 50 and above. However, some people develop these lines early due to a lack of oil-secreting glands in the eye area. With crow’s feet, you can be mistaken for someone in his or her 40s or 50s. But don’t worry too much, as skin care centers, such as Clarity Skin of Salt Lake City, say a simple injection of Botox can remove those lines for at least three months.
Veiny hands are a common sign of aging. So if you are still in your 20s and have veiny hands, you’ll pass for a 30-year-old. Contrary to that, the presence of prominent veins in hands is mainly due to a loss of bone tissue. A dermal filler injection can easily plump them up. Regular exercise and calcium intake can also help prevent bone tissue loss.
Once you’ve improved these physical characteristics, you’ll definitely look younger — and comments about how old you look will be a stuff of yesterday.
