As time passes by, we find ourselves slowly getting older and older every day, wishing we could go back to the old days.
So we begin chasing whatever’s left of our fleeting youth, obsessed with the latest trends, fads and tips on how to make ourselves look younger and retain our youthful glow and complexion.
Remember FaceApp, the app that went viral for making anyone look older?
It also has the power to make anyone’s face look younger by removing wrinkles and brightening up their complexion.
And it’s quickly becoming a routine for some to use these apps to always edit their photos and shave ten years off their age.
Look at that magic. Don’t lie – you’ve probably tried it at least once! Or at least, you’re going to want to do it after this article.
It’s natural to want to look younger, of course.
I mean, who wouldn’t want to be mistaken for their son’s girlfriend?
No matter how advanced technology gets, to what extent can you continue hiding behind filters and artificial intelligence to fake your youth?
When that Tinder guy you’ve been talking to finally sees you in real life, will you look much older than your edited profile photos?
Well, luckily for you, Goody Feed will always come through.
Here are five ways in which you really can look younger without the use of camera filter technology. Because good things must share, right?
1. Exercising Regularly
Exercising is tough but as people say: No pain, no gain. And you don’t have to go big right from the start.
By making small changes in our daily routine and lifestyle, it could actually contribute towards improving our health, and in turn, make us look younger.
I know you’ll probably groan after reading this, but one of the ways to make yourself stay youthful is to exercise regularly, no matter how tiring it is.
Exercising helps to improve your body’s circulation and immune system, which maintains your good physique and complexion, and also keeps you as energetic as ever.
Even if you end up like this…
2. Sleeping Habits
Did you know that the way you sleep contributes to the way you age? Apparently, if you sleep on your side or your stomach, you may get skin damage, wrinkles, and sometimes, indentations in the skin that mimic wrinkles.
However, it’s been proven that if you sleep on your back, you age like a fine wine.
Your face won’t swell as much, you’ll have fewer fine lines, and your body will relax more too, enhancing the cell turnover that gets rid of dead skin cells.
Getting more sleep is also linked to the production of the hormones which help to keep the skin radiant, so make sure you’re getting at least 7 hours of quality beauty sleep at night as much as possible!
3. Anti-Ageing Foods
Foods like red bell peppers, papaya, blueberries, broccoli, spinach, nuts, avocado and sweet potatoes not only look pretty with their vibrant colours, but they can also make you look prettier.
These magic foods have anti-ageing properties in them as well that we can consume regularly to reap the full benefits of.
They’re packed with antioxidants, healthy fats, water, and essential nutrients, helping to give our skin a healthy glow, combatting fine wrinkle lines and dull skin at the same time.
4. Skincare Products
Now here’s something almost everyone’s vanity tables are full of: skincare products.
Using them to maintain good skin is a well-known method to retain one’s youth. It’s no secret that taking care of your skin and face is first priority when you want to look younger, for it’s the first thing people notice about you.
From moisturiser and relaxing face masks to anti-ageing cream and toner, these products are key to maintaining good skin.
You should also cleanse your face every morning and night for dirt is easily trapped on your face as you go about your day. Just a simple routine of moisturiser and facial cleanser daily will go a long way.
You may even glow like a K-pop idol by the end of the month with the right products.
5. Beauty Devices
Lastly, the latest trend that’s been taking over the worldwide beauty community cannot be missed out in your quest to look immortal.
While skincare products are extremely helpful in maintaining good skin, the skin may not absorb the healing benefits completely sometimes, especially if you’ve used the product for a very long time.
That’s what beauty devices are here to help with. Among other things, they also help to maximise the skin’s absorption of skincare products and decelerate ageing as well.
Take, for example, the Microcurrent Facial Roller from TOUCHBeauty, which helps to shape facial contours & firms the skin using mild microcurrent technology and 360° spinning rollers.
The vibrations are going to feel quite shiok as well on your face, I expect.
P.S. it’s environmentally friendly and runs on solar energy, which means that you can just expose it to any form of light to charge, without adding on to your electricity bill.
If you have a lot of dark eye circles due to a busy lifestyle that even skincare products can’t save, fret not, for this sonic eye device might help you instead.
With the use of a 42°C warm treatment and a sonic vibration massage, the device helps to nourish, illuminate and replenish the eye area for a brighter and more energetic look. Goodbye, panda eyes!
There’s even a beauty device that covers various aspects of skin concerns.
It’s not just a colourful looking flashlight – The Light Therapy Device features three heads with different red, blue and yellow light therapy wavelengths.
The red lights help to smoothen fine lines and give your skin elasticity and firmness, the blue helps with treating active acne and preventing breakouts, and lastly, the yellow helps to reduce dark spots, even the skin tone and brighten the skin.
