How to Look Younger at 50 (Biggest Revealers of Age)

In this article we will explore the best ways to take care of aging skin, the biggest revealers of age and how to look young again!

Take Care of Your Hands

Now, I believe there is a lot of character in your hands. You work hard and that shows, and I really think there’s something to be proud of in that. That’s personally how I had always looked at my rough hands. Still, I knew if my hands looked young that wouldn’t take away from my character either. Once you get older, hands do being to give away your age more easily than the rest of your body.

One of the sure-fire ways to make your hands look young again, is simply to moisturize. Whenever we wash our hands we lose some of the natural moisture from our skin, and it leads to older, rougher-looking hands in the long run. Plumping up the skin with moisturizers can be really beneficial in avoiding that, and the best part is how quickly moisturizers take effect. Here are a few of the top ingredients for moisturizing your hands:

 

olive oil

1. Olive Oil

Olive oil is a great natural moisturizer that works deep within the skin and will immediately offer a more supple look and feel to your skin. It is best applied to slightly damp skin, and can be used in a nightly or morning routine! It is best used for dry and rough hands, and not as a face moisturizer. Olive oil as a moisturizer can help protect you from harsh rays of sunlight and it’s full of rich antioxidants.

 

 

2. Shea Butter

Shea butter is one of those great moisturizers that can be used for almost any skin-related issue. It smooths out rough cuticles for long-lasting moisture in your hands, it helps with restoration of consistently dry skin and it helps to soften it. Shea butter is a proactive moisturizer that has healing properties to it as well; it is anti-inflammatory and can soothe, tone and re-hydrate your skin for lasting effects. A true multi-tasker, shea butter can reduce the appearance of dark spots, acne, and can help with skin conditions such as psoriasis and excema.

3. Vitamin E

Vitamin E is another powerful antioxidant that moisturizes, adds clarity and elasticity to the skin. It is great for dry or rough hands, and can be found in body lotion forms for other parts of the body as well. It can also help with flaky, itchy skin as well. The Infuse Nourishing Vitamin Oil is made with Vitamin E along with A, C, and D to fight the free radicals that age skin.

4. Macadamia Nut Oilmacadamia oil

This nut oil nourishes dry and irritated skin, and provides restoration for aging skin. It aids moisture for a natural but non-greasy feel. Macadamia nut oil is known as an ultimate carrier oil when it comes to skincare and provides health benefits too!

Allowing for a number of different uses, macadamia nut oil has a high level of antioxidants that help neutralize free radicals. One of the antioxidants in macadamia nut oil is known as squalene; this helps to prevent wrinkles, age spots, dark spots and other signs of aging.

 

Re-hydrate Your Neck

hydrate neck

The neck is one of the biggest revealers of age, and keeping your neck young will make the rest of you look younger too.

Now, your neck is the part of your body that can make or break you when it comes to looking youthful. The first step is drinking more water; literally re-hydrate yourself.

The biggest trouble when it comes to the neck, is that we tend to neglect it and we don’t take care of it the same way we do our face. The neck requires the same kind of care the rest of the body does, and once we realize this, it’s much easier to prevent issues like wrinkles and age lines in the first place.

Right now though, we are going to go over the ways to reverse the harm that has been done to our neck over time.

1. Take care of your posture: The neck begins to show signs of aging sooner than the rest of your body because the skin on the neck is thinner and more easily neglected. Constantly bending that skin can loosen it up over time, and wrinkles naturally appear.

2. Moisturize and exfoliate your neck

Like we said before, the neck requires just as much attention as the face and this often goes overlooked. Even if you exfoliate the neck twice a week, it will help tighten the skin around, and keep you from developing that loose-chin look. It is a good idea to use gentler exfoliant on the neck, as the skin around the decolletage is quite fragile and requires a delicate hand.

Moisturizing is always going to be key, so you’ll likely hear about it a lot from us. Don’t neglect the neck when it comes to moisturizing; it’s as important for your neck as it is any other part of your body.

3. Vitamin C

So, you’re going to be hearing a lot about Vitamin C from us too, and that’s basically because it is an ingredient that works so well for anti-aging purposes. It enhances the production of collagen which will be the thing that brings tightness and firmness to your neck. Applied topically, or taken orally, products with vitamin C can really help bring a youthful look and feel to your neck.

With The Collagen Complete and Vitamin C Fizz Bundle from The Spa Dr. your Vitamin C intake is bundled with collagen peptides, biotin, Aloe Vera and bamboo extract: and absolutely amazing combination of healthy, effective ingredients for making your skin look younger!

4. Sunscreen

Sun exposure can also cause damage to the neck and create fine lines and wrinkles. Proper preventative care when going into the sun is important for keeping your neck protected. The percentage of visible skin damage that is attributed to sun exposure is extremely high, and so to avoid it altogether spend an extra 20 seconds when getting ready to apply sunscreen to your neck as well as your face.

The skin on your neck is particularly fragile, and there are some effective, natural ways to go about diminishing damage done over the years. Use a good sunscreen that is effective year-round for the best results.

The Eyes are the Window to Your Soul

(And Your Age)

The eyes are the poetic part of your body that tell your secrets without your permission. That goes for the depths of your soul (if your poker face is as weak as mine) as well as the years you’ve put behind you. Similar to neck skin, yet even thinner, is the skin around your eyes. It is arguably the most delicate and easily effected area of your skin. If you want to know how to look younger than your age, here are some simple tips and routines that you can follow to take care of the skin around your eyes and reverse signs of aging.

1. Primer

Treat the area around your eyes by consistent moisturizing and de-puffing techniques. One age-old way (pun intended) of reducing puffiness around your eyes is by placing thinly sliced cucumber under your eyes. Another great way to diminish fine lines and creases under your eyes is to dab your under-eyes with a small amount of primer. Primer is a thin moisturizer used for delicate areas such as under-eyes. If you have dark circles under your eyes, try a tinted primer that matches the colour of your skin.

Cover FX Water Cloud Primer is an award-winning primer we know and love here at Anti-Aging Solutions. It’s known for its cooling mousse that refreshes and defends skin against pollution and blue light emissions.

2. Yellow-based Concealer

For any discolouration or dark circles, pick a concealer about two shades lighter than your foundation. Applying this will subtly lift your eyes and provide a natural-looking brightness. Read into a concealer that has yellow tones and spread a light layer under your eyes. You can absolutely use concealer without foundation; smudge under your eyes until it matches the colour of your skin.

3. Light Eye-Makeup

Eyeliner around the outer edge of your eyes will lift your eyes and allow a youthful shape to take place. Pencil eyeliner or liquid liner can help this effect. Mascara can also help to open up your eyes and make them look larger and more attractive.

Big eyes always account for a youthful look. It is best to avoid eyeshadows that cause a creasing look on your eyelids; shiny or sparkling eyeshadow can actually add more age rather than taking them off.

When using makeup for a younger look, the less the better.

Light makeup can absolutely add a youthful glow to your eyes, but there is such a thing as overdoing it.

You want to avoid heavy makeup, but certainly make use of subtle eye-makup like eyebrow pencil. Eyebrow pencil is a great way to add some definition if you have thinning brows. Of course, always pick an eyebrow pencil that matches your eyebrow colour.

4. Eye Masks

My favourite way to take care of my eyes is maybe the lowest-maintenance. There are tons of great ways to utilize eye masks, from simple sliced cucumber masks to firming eye masks.

There are some great eye masks that have vitamins to add a glow and firm up the eye area. Masks with skin plumping peptides are a very effective way to infuse hydration into your skin and brighten your look. Eye masks make a person look younger in record-time; they hydrate and boost smoothness and plumpness around eyes.

Eye cream

Targeting these three areas on your body will be the most crucial in the effort to look young again. Taking care of your hands is something you will thank yourself for in the long run. The neck and eyes are two very noticeable parts of your body; when they look good, it shows! Try to target these three areas with a routine and add some of these ideas to your daily regimen.

Eye masks are hydrating, de-puffing and anti-aging; the best part is they don’t require a long wait! We found that the best bang for your buck is this 80 Pcs – Golden Osmanthus Eye Mask from Bio Aqua. That’s right, 80 piece! Nowadays, when even a single eye mask costs between 7 and 10 dollars at the least, we’ve found this super moisturizing AND anti-aging eye mask that comes in a huge quantity for less than 10 bucks. Suffice to say, we’re definitely big fans.

5. Eye Cream

Eyes are the most delicate part of the body, and the skin around them is especially fragile. When using eye cream to improve their look, it is very important to use something that is worthwhile. Quick fixes, or half-hearted resolves will only let you down because making your eyes look healthy and young requires a product with healthy and effective ingredients.

Our favourite is LIFT + FIRM Eye Cream from LiftLab because it is sulfate and paraben free, and full of essential B Vitamins. It comes in a lasting 3 month supply that alleviates crow’s feet and reduces the appearance of dark circles. This cream just proves its own worth, and saves the trouble of buy 3 or 4 different creams to alternate between. To have one effective product is much more useful, and easier on the wallet, than a few that are partially effective.

 

All of the parts of the body require our attention and care, and the sooner we start, the better the result. Use hydrating creams for your neck and collarbone areas, as well as moisturizers for the skin around the delicate parts of your body. You’ll find these small measures make for a huge difference.

  1. Hi Sonia,

    I often neglect my hands especially when it comes to moisturizing. Whatever lotion is left from applying to my skin is just the usual amount that my hands receive. My hands aren’t rough but it’s neither soft. The back of it already developed fine lines and green veins. Knowing all the right ingredients to moisturize my hands, is it safe to put it all together with a beeswax and create my own balm or salve?

    As for my neck and eyes, those areas are well taken care of. It’s a part of my daily and night routine to apply eye mask or under eye serum to prevent wrinkles. Luckily, I haven’t developed crow’s feet or anything similar. The one that I have is in between my eye brows, which is what I’m working on with a very gentle pinky massage. I also massage my neck upwards to prevent it from drying and sagging. Thank you for this information. I love it!

    1. Hey there! If you know some good ingredients to moisturize your hands it is safe to put them together with a beeswax and create your own balm! That’s a really smart DIY way to take care of your hands! It’s great that you take care of your neck and hands well. I love a good eye mask 🙂

  2. Great suggestions!! I always tell all my friends that sunscreen is very important. They usually skip it because they wanna get tanned but the problem it that you get the wrinkles plus the skin cancer. I also use coconut oil on my skin as well and it works great. I also love to mix vitamin E with my facial moisturizer as well 🙂 thanks for sharing the tips, I am gonna share this to my friend so now she can believe me.

  3. This is a great post! I often neglect my hands and I know that I need to moisturize them more often. I don’t really take care of my eyes too. I didn’t know that putting cucumbers under your eyes reduce the puffiness under around your eyes until now. After reading this post, I realized that I need to take care of my eyes and hands better than I’m doing now.

  4. Great points, specially keeping your neck wrinkle free. I’ve also heard you can judge the age by the skin on the elbows..which I kind of agree with, it’s similar to hands. But then again, you may have a job that is strenuous on your hands and you end up having a hard time keeping the skin happy – which I’m struggling now and would love if you could help me.

    My skin on hands is very dry and I’m battling that with coconut oil and pawpaw ointment. But I don’t know how to heal my skin around nails – it’s broken, red and so painful! do you have any idea how to treat it?

    Thanks!

    1. Hi Katya! I am wondering a little about why the skin around your nails is so painful, is there a reason that might be? If it is simply dry cuticles, try soaking your hands in soapy, warm water for around 10 minutes every few days. Try applying cuticle oil and possibly a massage cream. Some hands are definitely more delicate than others, but if the trouble is still withstanding, I would recommend finding out whether you may have an infection around the nails.

  5. Thank you. This is some great information and I will be sharing this with my girlfriend. She too uses the cucumbers under the eyes and swears by its effectiveness. Shea Butter is something we both use in our skin care regimen, including in our shower gels and soaps.

    We try to do anything having to do with taking care of our skin in the most natural way as possible. The skin after all is the largest body organ. Putting anything un-natural on it is like poisoning yourself to an extent. This is why she uses very little makeup and when she does it is the most natural ingredients possible.

    I really liked your information about taking care of the hands. It is the one part of our body other than the face that people see the most and that gets the most abuse. We use our hands for the majority of our daily actions and they can take a beating. Your tips for the hands will help both my girlfriend and I.

  6. Thank you for this informative post! I’ll start off by mentioning the makeup portion isn’t for me. I’m actually writing to ask you about the other solutions (olive oil, vitamin E, exfoliation, etc.).  I’m a 43 year old man and I’m wondering if these solutions work the same for men or if there’s a different regiment we should use. I look forward to your reply.

    Thank you,

    Scott

    1. Absolutely! When it comes to skincare everything works the same way as it does for men and for women in that we all need to moisturize, exfoliate hydrate and so on! The ingredients I mention in this article are very effective anti-aging ingredients and help make the skin look younger regardless of gender!  Luckily for men, and for some women as well, makeup is not something to worry about! Eye masks and creams are still very effective for men as well. I always consider men to have a bit of a luxury getting away with rough hands :), but absolutely these ingredients are effective for all of the body!

  7. Hi! One of the things most of us men neglect is our skin. I have read that woman and men’s skins need to hydrate and moisturize. But we’re always too busy. I think this post has opened my eyes to some basic cares involving oils and vitamins. This seems easy to incorporate into our every day life. Thanks!

  8. If you see my hands you will realize why I found this post so interesting. They are extremely hard and rough. I was really relieved to find that simple remedial solution can be found from everyday articles like Olive oil and Shea butter. I am keen on trying some of your recommendations. It seems the roughness of the hand can be looked after. Thanks a ton for your ideas and recommendations. 

  9. Hi Sonia, many thanks for the informative article. I try to use as many natural products as possible for my beauty care routine and your suggestions are great. I´m particularly interested in what you are recommending to treat the eyes as mine are very delicate and have to be choose any product wisely before purchasing. 

    I am deficient in vitamin D and was told not to use sunscreen, so am trying to stay away from the sun during the hottest hours. Besides sunscreen can clog the pores. So instead I make sure to apply more moisturizer. Thanks again and have a great day. 

  10. These are spot-on points and great tips to keep a youthful appearance even as the body ages. We all get older, but there are definitely ways to prevent signs of aging from making us look older than we are. It’s critical to have healthy habits like a great skincare routine and to avoid activities like smoking and sunbathing that speed up the aging process.

  11. I must say that I have been neglecting my neck and hands.  I will definitely be taking your advice!  Unfortunately, I get sunburn very easily so I stick to shaded areas or wear light long sleeves.  I always have cucumber in the fridge but had forgotten that simple remedy for under eyes (and my under-eye area could definitely use some improving).  Thank you so much for such a comprehensive article with both DIY and purchased options!

  12. Great advice! Moisturizing daily really does help skin look and feel youthful while embracing aging process.

  13. I loved reading your article on How To Look Young Again: The Biggest Revealers of Age, you’ve got a lot of interesting and helpful information.

    Love using Shea Butter and it smells so good! Another one of my favorites is Avocado Oil because it really is a great moisturizer for the skin.

    Of course youre right that drinking more water will hydrate you AND your skin, so obvious yet sometimes the reminder is necessary 🙂

    Thank You for Sharing! ~ Margaret

  14. Great article, back again to my favourite website! I can personally testify about the olive oil, it really works magic, I never took sun screen to be a serious idea but I can see you are really emphasis on it I think it the right time to try it out, I never tried due to fear of wrinkles and some sunburn, I always have something new to learn from your website, kindly would it be possible for you to add a downloadable link so that I can be downloading it as it will be asked to share with my workmates, keep writing more, I know you have a great impact to many people out there.

    Thanks!

  15. The biggest revealers of age that you’ve mentioned in this article are truly the biggest, come to think of your hand, your neck, they are part of the body that manifest changes easily, the hand gets hard over time so it’s necessary to work towards softening them. The eyes also are very much into showing age, the measures you suggested are useful. It’s really nice to read through.

  16. Hi and thank you for a great read! I am of an age now that I need to really think about covering up more especially out in the sun. I do a lot of gardening and recently have started using a good sunscreen moisturizer. However, I think the wrinkle recovery neck pad could be something I add to my routine. My neck needs some help for sure and the pads look like they will do me a lot of good. My hands could also do with some help and having a vitamin E hand cream is a must for me. I will bookmark your site and return regularly. Thanks again. 

  17. Being only 20 years old here I haven’t thought too much about this, it does scare me but I’m sure it does for everyone. One thing I have been doing for years though is using cocoa butter on my skin, once in the morning and then once more at night.

    Its worked a treat up to now and keeps my skin moisturized and smooth. That is something I recommend however I do see that you have some great ideas and solutions already noted in this list.

    I will have to try some of the others out so thanks for sharing.

    Josh

  18. Thanks a lot for sharing with us such an amazing article about How to Look Younger at 50.

    I often neglect my hands and I know that I need to moisturize them more often. And in general, I do not care so much about my body. Not long ago I started going to the gym and I would definitely oppose my body more and leave the bad habitats. Thanks for these helpful tips.

    Thanks again and keep in touch!
