How to look great when you are 40
First of all, take care of your teeth. They can say a lot about your age. If you notice that they have become yellowish, make an appointment with the doctor and whiten them.
If you are drinking too much coffee or smoke, it might be the reason for dark teeth. But there are ways to fix it so don’t worry about it.
Even though these procedures are quite expensive at the hospitals, it’s worth it. If you can’t afford it, there is another option – you can buy a special cream at the pharmacy.
You will look a lot younger with white teeth. As you age, you start gaining weight easily. It happens because your metabolism slows down and you need to take care of it not to get fat.
A lot of women who retire and spend most of their time home gain a lot of extra pounds. If that’s not what you want start exercising or at least eat less fast food.
Another thing you can do to look younger is to wear different clothes. It doesn’t mean that you have to wear a mini skirt but don’t dress like your mom!
40 doesn’t mean you are already old and can stop taking care of yourself. You can ask your friends to give you a piece of advice in case you are not sure about your style.
