As you age, you may find grey or white hairs sprouting on your head. To get a younger look, you may consider coloring your hair to get rid of white-gray hair look. Apply lighter, natural and soft colors throughout your hair.
You should stop trimming your hair like you did in your 20s and 30s. This is because your hair growth is slows down once you hit around 40 or so.

Hydrate Yourself With Water And Green Tea
Hydration is very important at any age. It boosts circulation as well as gives you supple skin. You are already beautiful. Therefore, all you need to do is enhance the look you have, not change it. This means that plastic surgery should not be an option.
Maintain Your Brow Thickness And Lushness
If you notice a few grey/white hairs on display in your brows, consider coloring them to mask their appearance, over plucking. Plucking is not the solution, no matter how tempting it is.
Brow plucking destroys follicles which can leave gaps, causing hair to never grow in that area again. Do not leave mascara behind or be afraid of it. It makes your eyes bigger and gives your whites a pop, giving you a more striking look.
Contour for Women Over 40
Contour should be your best friend. It gives you a youthful appearance. The perfect one for your skin is the one that is 2 or 3 shades darker than your complexion. Dust your temples, jawline, and hairline lightly. This create a false depth on your face which emphasizes lighter areas. This is how you build a youthful look without spending a fortune on plastic surgery.
Embrace Changes In Your Skin And Body
Your body might have gone slightly out of shape over the years due to child birth, inactivity, or slowing metabolism. Old is gold and not everyone is lucky enough to reach 40 or go way past it. Women over 40 should embrace and be proud of the changes in their body and skin that come as a result of time.
Even if your 20-something year old daughter’s clothing fits you, do not wear them. Avoid wearing makeup that looks that was popular when you were 20. Have a more classic and sophisticated style which perfectly complements your body and skin. This will suit and accentuate the woman you have become.
Detoxify Your Liver Once In A While
Cleaning your liver clears the whites of your eyes. It also boosts your metabolic rates. To ensure that your liver is clean, avoid taking sugar, eating dairy as well as wheat for 5 days. During this time consider eating more green veggies. This is the perfect recipe for cleaning your liver.
Consider An Anti-Aging Cleanser
The best anti-aging regime should nourish your skin, not deplete it. For this reason, buy an anti-aging cream that is rich in nutrients. Such a cream will nourish your skin at the time you apply it. Avoid products with petroleum or mineral oils as ingredients. This ingredients suffocate your skin.
Have A Rich And Nourishing Night Cream By Your Bedside
When you are over 40, your collagen fibers break apart after stiffening. As a result, you get furrows and cervices known as wrinkles and lines in your face, neck and body.
