Mums buy plenty of creams and beauty treatments to ensure that they stay looking young for as long as possible. But what about us dads? We want to put the effort in too, don’t we? We don’t want to look worse for wear when we hit fifty, and the truth is, there’s no excuse for this. Just look at Tom Cruise. The man is in his fifties, and he still looks like a thirty-year-old! Maybe there is something to Scientology after all, huh? He’s not the only one either. Will Smith doesn’t appear to be ageing and if you want a more realistic example, check out Hugh Laurie. The man may have lost some of his hair but he stills looks sprightly for his age. So what do we need to think about to ensure it doesn’t all go down hill when we reach middle age. Stop using Hair Products
Do you put wax, gel and goodness knows what else into your hair? Once you start to head towards the thirty landmark, you should probably stop doing this. You may not realise it, but those products are damaging your hair. You didn’t think you could get the perfect hold and have no side effects, did you? Similar to straightening your hair or blow drying it too often, you damage the cuticles. If you want to avoid going bald, it’s best to go with a natural look. If you do think that you’re at risk of balding, you can make your hair look thicker using bamboo oil. These natural oils help your hair recover from the stress that you’ve put it through. You may also want to look into finasteride tablets for hair loss. These tablets make your hair look fuller, thicker and can even grow it back!
Don’t Worry, Be Happy
A simple piece of advice yes, but one that we think you’ll find incredibly useful. If you want to know the biggest ally of old age, it’s stress. The more stressed you are, the older you will look, and it really is that simple. If you want to stay young, you have to find a way to relieve the tension that you feel. Once a month, I suggest that you think about going to a spa getaway. Get a massage and let your muscles unwind. You’ll feel far better, and you’ll look it too. This might be the secret to the youthful look of male celebs. They may put their bodies under immense pressure, but they also have the money to get relaxing treatments. Many also participate in yoga exercises which are supposed to be wonderful for the body.
Look After Your Skin
Another simple yet useful piece of advice would be to watch how much sunlight you expose your skin to. If it’s hot and humid outside, make sure you wear a cap. Or, put on suntan lotion. This will protect your skin from starting to look like brown leather as you get older.
With this simple advice, you can stay looking younger for longer.
