You’re living a full and vibrant life – and you want the world to see it. Here are our top tips for a look that’s as youthful as you feel.

From travel expeditions to newfound romance, from more active, adventurous lifestyles to a renewed focus on health and fitness – women of all ages are living more fulfilling lives, and it’s an inspiring sight.

Living a vibrant life like this is the fastest way to feel more youthful than your years. And it’s only natural to want a beauty and style regime to match.

So take a look at our favourite suggestions for looking as young and healthy as you feel.

Hydrate for a healthy glow

If you’re on-the-go all day, it’s easy to get a little dehydrated. And that’s no good for your skin, which can turn dull, flaky and lose its elasticity. So swapping tea, coffee and alcohol for plenty of fresh water is vital for an all-over healthy glow .

Snooze your way to a brighter look

A good night’s sleep can do wonders for your mind, body and soul , so make sure you’re getting your recommended eight hours of deep sleep.

Restful nights help boost your energy levels and mood, and even brighten up your eyes , so you’ll look and feel more radiant than ever.

Get a brighter, more youthful smile

Over the years, our teeth may become discoloured and gums may be irritated. These are signs of gum damage and weakened enamel – the enemies of a young and healthy smile.

Fortunately, you can give your mouth a second chance at staying young and healthy with Oral-B Gum & Enamel Repair Toothpaste for sensitive teeth – clinically proven to help rejuvenate gums and repair enamel in just two weeks*.

Use a light touch with your make-up

Using make-up to reflect the light can give your face a natural-looking lift and a youthful glow. Don’t take our word for it – watch Carol Vorderman exploring the best make-up techniques for older women.

Try to avoid heavy layers of make-up, though: it can sink into wrinkles and make eyes look heavy.

Keep your long, luscious locks

Forget the outdated rules that say older women can’t wear long hair. If you’re leading a youthful lifestyle, why not keep a youthful haircut too?

It can take a little work to maintain long, thick locks as the years go by though. Take a look at our guide to ensure your tresses stay looking their best.

Good hair and teeth

mchappy 23/09/2017

I do not wash my hair very day, otherwise it tends to go to dry. I also like to colour my hair, which makes it look luscious and shiny. I started to develop gum disease and my dentist recommended to me to but an electric toothbrush, which I did and my gums have improved dramatically. Good hair and good teeth is the answer to a youthful, vibrant look!

Oral B Gum and Enamel Repair

Sandra 22/09/2017

I've converted to using Oral B Gum and Enamel Repair toothpaste. It has made such a difference to my teeth and gums. I had a couple of soft gum areas that sometime bled when brushing and a sensitive spot above a front tooth but after using Oral B Gum and Enamel Repair these problems have disappeared. I also find the anti bacterial content leaves my mouth feeling cleaner and healthier that it did when I used previous toothpastes. I love it and have highly recommended it to friends and family.

Internal smile


If you think about smiling you will find your facial muscles will start to lift into a Mona Lisa type of smile. This will soften your face and lift your features. It doesn't take much effort but can make you look so much younger. Try it out in front of the mirror and see what I mean

Fresh Air Daily


Get out in the fresh air daily even if its just a 15 minute brisk walk will make you feel healther in yourself which will lead to feeling younger.
