GROWING old is inevitable. Looking and feeling old is not.

Here’s how to regain your youth and wipe 10 years off your appearance.

Get a full body massage

Don’t think of it as an extravagance only. Instead, consider the significant health benefits attached to a good and thorough kneading. Besides the physical advantages like improved circulation, a drop in stress levels and an increase in flexibility, massage therapy also boasts impressive psychological and emotional rewards that leave you feeling - and looking - your best.

Get a new hairstyle

A flattering haircut is not only great aesthetically, but getting a new look will boost your confidence and up your self-esteem too. Take years off your appearance by avoiding lengthy locks.

Get that timeless beauty thing going

Did you know that wearing the wrong shade of lipstick is an instant ager? As is over-plucked, too-thin eyebrows.

For a more youthful look, ditch the dark colours and opt instead for lighter hues with a tinge of clear gloss. And a simple eyebrow fix? Grow them out and have them done professionally.

Get eight hours sleep

Battle with insomnia?

Try swopping your evening java for a calming cup of chamomile or Rooibos tea because there are few things in this world that age you more than a poor night’s sleep.

Get your diet right

A diet that is fuelled by healthy choices can be your greatest aid when it comes to retaining your youth and looking your best.

It’s also important to bear in mind that as you grow older, your body has different nutritional needs.
