When it comes to antiaging tips, most of the tips involve taking steps to prevent or minimize damage. But what if you want to look younger right now? Fortunately, there are many ways to look younger and more radiant, and you don’t have to wait five years or even five months. By making a few simple changes to your daily skin care, makeup and hair routine, you can take years off your appearance without spending a fortune.
Here’s what skin care, hair care and beauty experts have to say about instantly looking younger.
- Use a moisturizing mask
For tighter, more radiant skin, apply the hydrating mask for ten minutes. “Nourishing and hydrating ingredients leave your skin looking plumper and younger,” says celebrity esthetician Angela Caglia.

- Choose an illuminating base
Not all foundations are created equal, and to minimize those pesky fine lines and wrinkles, you need to choose a foundation that’s light and luminous. “Avoid pressed powder or full coverage because these products tend to crease,” says makeup artist Kate Stromberg. “Instead, choose a tinted moisturizer with a silicone base, medium coverage, liquid foundation, or shimmer particles.”

- Lighten your hair a little
“The general rule of thumb is that lighter colors look better as you age,” says master stylist Bernhards Sieverts. “Not everyone looks good with blonde hair, but even traditional brunettes can add a few highlights here and there.” Not only do highlights help cover up grays, they also prevent your hair from clashing with your skin tone as your skin tends to lighten as you age.
