But how does a 40-year-old person look younger?  Maybe they underwent cosmetic surgery to keep looking younger. Nope, they did not do that. So, how did they do it? There is a lot of information on the Live Youthfully site, and we have three great tips.
Three Tips To Keep In Mind

Be Happy 

This is no joke — living a happy life slows down the aging process of an individual. Did you know that if you harbor negative thoughts, you tend to age faster? Every negative thought has an adverse effect on the genetic information of our cells.

This actually shows itself in our physical looks. It produces hollow eyes, dull and wrinkled skin, aches and pains in our body, and even leads to our poor performance at work. Overall, it will also have a negative impact in our lives. With constant negative thoughts, we can easily destroy a great future without actually meaning it to happen.

How do we reverse such adverse effects? By being happy and thinking only of positive thoughts. When we are happy the internal processes in our body becomes proactive. Our skin starts to glow and become more resilient, we become more energetic, our eyes starts to sparkle, and we start to emit that youthful vibe.

When we give out positive energy around us, others react in the same manner. If you smile at someone, they will usually smile back at you. This will further create positive and happy energy throughout your lifetime. Just check out happy old people; they look younger than those who look like they carry the weight of the world in their shoulders.

Avoid Stress at All Cost

Stress has a very unhealthy effect on a person. A stressed person will look old compared to an unstressed person of the same age. It is a fact that stress is a powerful factor in premature aging because it has adverse effects on a cellular level. It does really affect how you look. Look around; when you see a person who has undergone a lot of stress, do you see him or her as attractive?

What really happens is that stress affects one’s body, especially the skin. Once you are stressed, you produce more cortisol in your body. This leads to oilier skin which makes it more prone to acne, rashes, and other skin problems.  In addition, once you are stressed your skin actually has a hard time healing itself. So, it is a must to avoid stress at all cost.

Opt for a Healthy Lifestyle

What you eat and how you live affects how you look later in life. If you abuse your body by working too hard and not eating a balanced diet, you will look older than your age.

Working excessive hours makes you look haggard. Your body needs to rest; any machine that works overtime will break down sooner than expected. This is also relevant to our bodies.  When you work it too hard, without taking care of it properly, you will see its damaging effects on your looks and the way your body feels.

Therefore, one should opt for a healthy lifestyle. There is no better time to start but now, if you take care of your body properly at a younger age, you will age gracefully. Eat well, exercise, and be good to your skin.

Final Thoughts

There you have it — a way to grow old without looking worn down. Even when you get to the age of 40, you still need to continue taking care of yourself. If you are happy, you will have a better body. If you are living a life without stress, you will feel younger. Living a healthy lifestyle is the right path to aging gracefully.

Staying young is not an unsolvable mystery; you just need to take better care of yourself. So start taking care of your skin at a young age so you can look great at 40!
