Dressing and Looking Appropriately According To Age

looking appropriatelyBeautifying oneself is not an easy task as it requires a lot of effort and perseverance. The whole package of being one isn’t just about looking good but feeling good and acting good as well. Sometimes real beauty is being quantified on how a person handles beauty etiquette.

Beauty etiquette is the process of knowing how look appropriately in various occasions. A beautiful face can be an advantage but if it is going to be partnered with inappropriate outfit plus an inappropriate makeup, then it would be useless.

Age is one of the determinants on how to look appropriately and it would include the choices of clothes, the shade of your makeup as well as the tint of your lip color.

20’s – this is the time of your life wherein you’re about to enter adulthood yet you’re still keeping the teenage aura. Get rid of too colorful accessories and avoid keeping up with the trend as it doesn’t suit everyone else. Start wearing your makeup in bold colors and try to experiment with silhouettes and hemlines

30’s – at this age you need to display a little bit of your authoritative side and keep your haircut in light layers. Bangs can also be used to hide your first line of wrinkles. Your makeup should be kept fresh by having rosy cheeks and some lip gloss.

40’s – this is the right time to add color to your hair as the gray ones are starting to appear. Thinning of lashes is very common so thickening your mascara can be of great help.

50’s and above – at this point, you can’t hide some of those fine lines but it doesn’t mean that you can no longer look fresh. You should avoid using too much foundation and keep your lip color on the lighter side. Dark colored lips can only emphasize the fine lines around the mouth. At this age, your hair needs conditioning more often to avoid split ends and brittleness.

Who knows? You might even lose a couple of pounds more than you expect.

eat healthyEat Healthy – it’s time to count your calories once again. With your health resolution, you do not necessarily have to cut your calorie intake to an unreasonably low amount. You do need energy to perform your daily tasks. What you will have to work at is getting your calorie consumption to a level that matches your energy use. If you intend to go on a vigorous workout, you cannot possibly survive with only half of the recommended daily calorie intake for your height, weight, and age. Healthy foods that are packed with the nutrients that you need and none of the excess calories are always recommended.


drink plenty of waterDrink Plenty of Water – do not underestimate the power of water. You need water to flush out all the toxins in your body. Unknown to you, some of these toxins might be causing your body to retain more fats and bad substances. Drinking ample amounts of water can help your digestive system effectively process the foods that you eat. Staying hydrated will also keep your internal processes running smoothly while observing your health resolution.
