We all want to look younger – or at least, not to look significantly older than our actual age!
But when you’re busy with childcare, relationships, work, study and umpteen other things, finding time to squeeze in a robust self-care regime feels like a pipe dream.
It doesn’t have to be that way. By phasing longer-term treatments into your schedule and incorporating tiny tweaks to your daily habits, within a matter of months you can be looking good and feeling great.
Who doesn’t want a bit of that? If you’re nodding your head, here are five ways to feel 10 years younger.
Don’t worry – you don’t need to restrict yourself to a diet of lettuce leaves and ice cubes sprinkled with synthetic sweetener in order to boost your appearance through your diet.
All you need to do is increase your consumption of the types of food that have a rejuvenating effect on skin and suspend the ageing process that little bit – foods such as avocado, berries, green veg, ginger, garlic, pineapple and naturally, water. For inspiration, look at some Waitrose healthy options.
By clearing your mind in order to eliminate negative thoughts and focus on the gift that’s the present moment, you’ll reduce the ageing effects of stress on your mind, body and soul.
You don’t need a 6-week wilderness retreat to incorporate mindfulness in your life – an app like Calm teaches you short exercises which you can perform in a few minutes each day. Start soon and feel the difference!
Few things squash our confidence more than feeling paranoid about smiling because of dodgy teeth – if your gnashers are less than gorgeous, you’ll know exactly what we’re talking about.

Anti-ageing dermatology treatments are also worth incorporating in your routine and there are a few you can choose from.
You could have a medical professional regularly treat you with injectable neuromodulators which can stop wrinkles developing in the first place, as well as softening and eliminating them. Alternatively, intense pulse light (IPL) laser treatment works wonders on toning the chest, neck and face.
When was the last time you danced like no one was watching?
