1. Always give yourself 7 up to 8 hours of sleep every night. Your body follows a set circadian rhythm that makes it behave in certain ways at certain hours of the day. Cellular repair is at its peak while you sleep. So, next time you plan to stay up late, think about the aching joints your body can’t treat and the wrinkles it won’t be able to turnover.
2. Make sun protection a priority. Don’t skip your sunscreen. UV rays can and will make irreversible damages to your skin. Keep skin cancer a remote possibility, and minimize sun damage on your skin.
3. Live healthier. Your metabolism is simply not as efficient as it used to be. Studies have shown how eating less may be correlated with longevity. The reason is because your body needs less energy as you age. When your body organs are overused, including your heart, lungs and colon, you are increasing your risk for developing chronic diseases like diabetes or cancer. So, eat less, keep moving and stay away from vices.

If you want to stay younger for longer, then you should train yourself to become more optimistic, more patient, and have a higher level of tolerance understanding peoples’ different preferences, values and character.

If you haven’t already explored the power of essential oils and retinol in keeping your skin supple and glowing, now will be the best time to reach out for these two products.

Follow makeup tricks that help you achieve skin perfection with less makeup. Besides, who needs makeup when you have beautiful skin to begin with?
7. Dress up in classic pieces. As is with your makeup, so too should you tone down your dressing. Stick to the basic, most flattering pieces every woman must own, that includes your little black dress, well-tailored suits and trousers, flattering collared polos and off-the-shoulder summer dresses. You shouldn’t be ashamed to show off some skin but that shouldn’t be your priority.
8. Know what is appropriate for you. Among the things that you can put on everyday, trendy necklaces and other pieces of fancy jewelry can easily make a plain outfit appear over the edge.
