Lebih 50 terkorban dalam letupan di pusat pendaftaran pengundi


KABUL : Angka korban dalam insiden pengeboman di luar sebuah pusat pendaftaran pengundi di ibu negara Afghanistan, Kabul pada Ahad meningkat kepada 57 orang pada Isnin.

Lebih 100 orang cedera dalam insiden tersebut akibat seorang pengebom bunuh diri.

Menurut agensi berita Reuters, ini merupakan serangan paling serius di negara itu semasa rakyat bersiap-sedia hadapi pilihan raya yang dijadualkan pada Oktober nanti.

Kumpulan militan Daish mengaku bertanggungjawab ke atas serangan tersebut yang dilihat cubaan untuk menjejaskan kepercayaan rakyat terhadap kerajaan presiden negara itu, Ashraf Ghani.

Beliau turut didesak untuk mengadakan pilihan raya pada tahun ini yang telah sekian lama ditunda.

Menurut jurucakap Kementerian Dalam Negeri, Najib Danesh, pengebom bunuh diri tersebut dilihat berjalan kaki ke arah pusat pendaftaran pengundian semasa pewagai pilihan raya sedang mengedarkan kad pengenalan diri kepada pengundi.

Ini merupakan sebahagian daripada proses pendaftaran bagi 10 juta pengundi di seluruh Afghanistan yang bermula pada bulan ini.

Dalam satu kenyataan yang dikeluarkan hari ini, Presiden Ashraf Ghani mengutuk sekeras-kerasnya serangan tersebut dan berkata “tindakan itu tidak akan mengalihkan tujuan kami atau melemahkan proses demokrasi kebangsaan”.

Jurucakap Kementerian Kesihatan berkata, sekurang-kurangnya 57 terkorban, termasuk lapan kanak-kanak, manakala 119 orang cedera dalam insiden terbabit.

Namun angka korban mungkin akan meningkat dalam hari yang akan datang.

Ini serangan terburuk di Kabul sejak 100 orang maut pada Januari lepas akibat letupan bom yang disembunyikan di dalam sebuah ambulans.

Menurut Pertubuhan Bangsa-bangsa Bersatu (PBB) lebih 750 orang terkorban atau cedera parah akibat pengebom bunuh diri dan letupan oleh kumpulan pengganas dalam tiga bulan pertama tahun ini.

Siti Sarah tolak 50 lagu sebelum rakam single ciptaan suami



PENYANYI Siti Sarah Raissuddin menolak hampir 50 buah lagu sebelum merakamkan single terbaharunya yang berjudul Semakin.

Diciptakan sepenuhnya oleh suaminya, Shuib Sepahtu, Sarah mengakui dirinya cerewet dalam memilih single ‘comeback’.

“Saya akui masa sudah begitu suntuk kerana Gegar Vaganza 3 yang saya sertai dahulu pun sudah lebih dua tahun berlalu.

“Namun begitu, saya memang seorang yang cerewet. Saya memilih karya yang benar-benar kena dengan jiwa saya. Sudah hampir 50 lagu yang saya terima tidak menepati citarasa saya.

“Akhirnya, lagu ciptaan suami sendiri yang menjadi pilihan saya. Rupanya tak perlu mencari jauh-jauh. Tetapi, proses penghasilan lagu Semakin juga mengambil masa lima bulan untuk disiapkan,” kata Sarah kepada Astro Gempak.

Dalam pada itu, Sarah turut menunda mini showcase yang bakal berlangsung pada 4 Mei 2018.

“Sepatutnya showcase tersebut berlangsung pada tarikh terbabit, tetapi ia ditunda kerana terlalu dekat dengan tarikh Pilihan Raya Umum ke-14 pada 9 Mei ini.

“Insya-Allah, showcase tersebut bakal ditunda pada 6 Julai nanti dan akan diadakan di Matic Kuala Lumpur. Saya bakal mempersembahkan rangkaian 12 sehingga 15 lagu dalam masa lebih satu jam dan menggunakan khidmat Faizal Uzir selaku pengarah muzik” katanya lagi.

Tiket berharga RM98 dan RM138 (VIP) sudah boleh ditempah menerusi talian 018-3564291.

Tolak 50 Komposer, Sarah ‘Terpikat’ Dengan Lagu Shuib – MYNEWSHUB


DALAM banyak-banyak komposer yang ‘lamar’ Siti Sarah untuk single baharunya, siapa sangka wanita kecil molek itu akhirnya jatuh cinta dengan lagu ciptaan suaminya sendiri, Shuib Sepahtu.

Selepas melibatkan diri dalam program Gegar Vaganza musim ketiga sekitar dua tahun lalu, Sarah sebenarnya telah menerima lebih 50 buah lagu daripada ramai komposer tempatan.

“Saya terima lebih 50 buah lagu daripada komposer tempatan tapi saya tolak kerana tidak sesuai dan tidak sangka lagu ciptaan suami sendiri juga yang kena dengan saya.

“Dia mengambil masa agak lama berbulan-bulan juga termasuk buat lirik yang mengisahkan tentang percintaan,” katanya dipetik daripada portal mStar Online.

Lagu berkenaan sudah selesai dirakamkan pada penghujng tahun lalu dan di sebalik proses rakaman, ibu kepaada dua cahaya mata itu memberitahu bahawa terdapat banyak cabaran yang telah dihadapinya.

Hampir tujuh tahun tidak muncul dengan single baharu, Sarah mengakui bahawa dia mengalami sedikit kesukaran dan kadang kala, hal kecil turut membuatkan dia terganggu.

Semalam, telah berlangsung majlis pra dengar single baharunya itu berjudul Semakin yang diadakan di pejabat Indigital Sdn. Bhd. di Petaling Jaya, Selangor.

Namun mengikut perancangan, persembahan mini Sarah bakal diadakan pada 4 Mei ini tetapi terpaksa ditunda kepada 6 Julai kerana tarikh itu terlalu hampir dengan Pilihan Raya Umum (PRU) ke-14 yang akan berlangsung pada 9 Mei ini.

“Selain dekat PRU14, tarikh 4 Mei terlalu awal untuk saya buat persiapan secukupnya. Kalau boleh saya mahu buat terbaik dan memuaskan hati peminat yang lama menanti persembahan saya,” tambahnya.

Ketika persembahan mini itu nanti, Sarah bakal menyampaikan sebanyak 12 hingga 15 buah lagu dalam masa satu jam setengah.

Persembahan itu bakal diadakan di Matic Kuala Lumpur, pada jam 9 malam. – MYNEWSHUB.CC/ AH

50 Everyday Habits That Make You Look Younger


Smile, wide!

smilemimagephotography/ShutterstockYoung, middle-aged, and older individuals studied thousands of photographs and were asked to guess the age of models with various facial expressions. Neutral expressions yielded the most accurate results, and fearful expressions made subjects look older; happy faces were rated as younger than they really were. (Here’s how to smile for better health.)

Eat more grapes

grapesAll Around Photo/ShutterstockSorbitol, which gives grapes, berries, plums, and pears their sweetness, is a humectant, a substance that attracts water when applied to the skin, helping it absorb and retain moisture. That’s one of the reasons why grapes are among the 30+ foods that are even better for you than you realized.

Touch up your hair

hairNina Buday/ShutterstockAs we age, our hair changes. “It often becomes coarser in texture and more dry,” says hairstylist Jenna Mast. Heat styling can damage hair, so try air drying an only use an iron around your face. Whether you have your hair washed at home or at a salon, use deep conditioning treatments regularly to combat dryness. Make sure you’re not making these hair washing mistakes in the shower.

Frame your face

eyebrowsOlena Yakobchuk/ShutterstockKeeping your eyebrows well-groomed and shaped helps provide a frame for your face and draws attention to your eyes. Not sure how to groom yours? Here are the seven tips you need for perfect eyebrows.

Cleanse and moisturize regularly

lotionTuiPhotoEngineer/ShutterstockCleansing and moisturizing helps protect skin and keep it healthy; but banish regular soap, which can be drying for older skin. Instead, use a cleanser that gently washes without stripping skin of its natural moisture. Avoid skin toners, especially those with a stringent or alcohol base. Follow with a good moisturizer, morning and night.

Conceal your problem areas

collarBogdan Florea/ShutterstockIf you have a wrinkly neck or jowls, avoid tight-fitting or crew-neck tops, which squeeze skin upward. A shirt collar over a round-necked jersey is a better option. Wear dark-colored shirts if you have a large belly. Here are more outfit tricks to help you look instantly younger.

Give yourself a hand or two

handsOlga Miltsova/ShutterstockA study showed that people could accurately guess women’s ages by looking at their hands. (These are the subtle signs your hands are begging for TLC.) Use a good hand cream frequently, preferably one that contains SPF for daytime. Brighten dull hands by exfoliating regularly: Mix sea salt with lemon juice and gently scrub into your hands with a soft toothbrush.

Eat more greens and reds

kaleKamila i Wojtek Cyganek/ShutterstockVitamin K—in kale and other green vegetables—helps your blood coagulate, reducing the impact of bruising. Lycopene in tomatoes gives the skin powerful protection against UV rays. Fruit and veggie consumption resulted in better skin complexion, according to a study. (Here are eight more essential foods for beautiful skin.

Wear less makeup

faceVoyagerix/ShutterstockInstead of heavy makeup or these other makeup mistakes that age your face, pick pink, radiant hues that mimic the look of natural youth, says makeup artist and What Not to Wear star Carmindy. “As we age our skin loosens and is not as taught as it once was, so the more makeup you apply, the more it can move, settle, and travel,” she says. “Less makeup will adhere to mature skin much better so you stay looking fresh all day.”

Eat oily fish

salmonDima-Sikorsky/ShutterstockSalmon and other oily fish are rich in DMAE (dimethylaminoethanol), a compound that boosts muscle tone and is one of the must-have ingredients in expensive “mature” skin creams. Eating oily fish twice a week offers the same benefits. Here are more foods that can help fight wrinkles.

Exercise four or more times per week

fitnessIakov Filimonov/ShutterstockA recent study showed that regular exercise can slow the aging process—just avoid these exercise mistakes that make you look older. You’ll fend off muscle loss and sleep better when you exercise most days of the week. Combine cardiovascular exercise for heart and lungs, resistance exercise for muscles, and stretching for flexibility.

Wear the right bra

braAbElena/ShutterstockGravity affects us all, but properly fitting undergarments can help shape a figure into a more youthful silhouette. “Pop culture research states that over 80 percent of women are wearing the wrong size bra,” says style expert Sharon Haver, founder of FocusOnStyle.com. Get fitted at a lingerie store to make sure you’re wearing the correct size and style for your bust shape, as well as the right amount of coverage and support.

Drink more water

waterfizkes/ShutterstockOur body is mostly water, and our skin is our body’s biggest organ—so we need to keep hydrated to avoid it looking dry and dull, and creating wrinkles. “The more hydrated you are, the more plump, subtle, and youthful your skin will appear,” says fitness and nutrition expert Erin Palinski-Wade, RD, CDE, author of Belly Fat Diet For Dummies. “In addition, staying hydrated can improve energy levels and fight against cravings, which makes it easier to stay on target with your exercise goals and healthy eating habits.” (As good as regular water is for you, drinking lemon water may be even better.)

Dress smart, not shapeless

shirtBorysevych.com/ShutterstockDress for the size you are, not the size you were—but hiding in big, baggy clothes isn’t flattering. Tailored, clean lines look sharper. “It’s not about volume but the cut of a garment,” Haver says. “It’s better to break free from hiding yourself in your clothing and stand tall and proud in well-fitting garments—not only will you look better but you’ll give yourself an emotional boost by allowing you to step into your star power.” You should also avoid these other style mistakes that make you look older.

Pick pants with Lycra

pantsOleg Mikhaylov/ShutterstockA stretchy material may give your bottom a boost, but try on stretchy pants before buying. (Here are more style mistakes that make you look older.) “If you have a curvy body type, a bit of Lycra makes for a better fit,” Haver says. “However, if pants with Lycra are too tight, it creates an unsightly ripple effect.” If Lycra’s not working on the outside, try Lycra tights or a body-shaper underneath well-tailored pants, she suggests.

Seek out certain skin care ingredients

lotionKira Garmashova/ShutterstockNo surprise—SPF protects against free radical damage from the sun’s UV radiation that leads to collagen breakdown, sagging skin, and wrinkles, says dermatologist Purvisha Patel, MD, creator of Visha Skin Care. But there are other game-changing skincare ingredients to look for, too. “Retinol and alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs) can rejuvenate the skin and eliminate fine lines and wrinkles,” she says. “Hyaluronic acid helps your skin retain moisture, which gives it a smooth, glowing look.”

Notice your neckline

skinaka An Lee/ShutterstockAlthough the most flattering neckline depends on your face shape, hairstyle, neck shape and length, and your shoulder structure, one neckline in particular tends to be most flattering: “A classic V-neck with a collar creates a linear line that makes us look taller and thinner, and the bit of a collar detracts from the appearance of an older neck while spotlighting our face,” Haver says.

Consider colors

closetPressmaster/ShutterstockA pop of color can be fun and youthful, but it’s not necessary to wear it from head-to-toe. You can accent your outfit with a modern trend color, but you don’t want to look dated and old by holding on to a trendy color way past its expiration date,” Haver says. “It’s really not about age but about sophistication—classic neutral colors are always chic.”

Accessorize

accessoriesDiana Indiana/ShutterstockShow your personality with fun accent pieces that don’t have an age or body type attached—just go for it with these tricks to perfectly accessorize your outfit. “If you opt for classic clothes, which are always chic, a dash of an interesting accent by way of an accessory will instantly keep the look modern and fresh so you maintain a relevant and youthful appearance,” Haver says.

Avoid orthopedics if possible

shoesNozdracheva Galina/ShutterstockFinding a comfortable shoe that also looks good is different for each person. “I have a high arch and I’m more comfortable in a bit of a heel rather than a pancake flat shoe,” Haver says. “I also look better with the bit of lift—there is no universal rule for heel heights.” But she says to avoid “fugly” shoes. “It’s well worth trying on different footwear brands to find the shoes that are the most stylish and comfortable for your particular foot,” she says. And yes, you can wear high heels and still feel comfortable.

Let go of stress and conflict

stressAlliance/ShutterstockStudies have shown stress actually ages your cells—but this aging can also be reversed with lifestyle changes that include stress management. “When you reduce stress and conflict, you are turning off stress hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol, and activating endorphins, the natural pain killers in your body, which makes everything about you more youthful,” says psychiatrist Judith Orloff, MD, the author of Positive Energy.

Highlight your eyes

highlightMaksim Denisenko/ShutterstockWhen it comes to youthful eye makeup, try Carmindy’s signature move. “You want to ‘Carmindize’ or highlight the eyes using a cream or powder pearlescent champagne hue,” she says. “Apply it only under the eyebrows and on the inside corners of the eyes.” For eye shadow, she says to stick with lighter neutral hues like light brown, quartz, or taupe, and use a pearl or matte formula, not glitter or high shimmer. Try these shadow shades to enhance your eye color.

Lighten up your liner

eyelinerOlena Yakobchuk/ShutterstockFor lining your eyes, avoid the black color you’ve probably been using for years. “Keep eyeliner light, like chocolate brown instead of black, and apply it as close to the roots of the upper lashes as possible,” Carmindy says. Also, “keep away from using liner under the eyes, which can look aging. If you must apply something under the lower lash line, try sweeping a powder eye shadow using an angle brush.” And avoid these makeup mistakes that age your face.

Load up on antioxidants

fruitsleonori/ShutterstockAntioxidants like vitamins A and C and the newest “it” fountain of youth antioxidant fight against free radicals, helping you maintain a younger appearance. “When free radicals from diet or the environment threaten to damage skin cells, antioxidants fight against these compounds and protect skin cells,” Palinski-Wade says. “Diets rich in antioxidants may help to fight against damage from the sun and the environment, and protect against inflammation which accelerates aging.” Eat oranges, strawberries, blueberries, bell peppers, and spinach to reap these benefits.

Skip the all-over concealer

makeupinspired by the light/ShutterstockHeavy face makeup can settle into wrinkles and give you a washed-out tone. Instead, first apply a makeup primer, which can create a smooth base for foundation. Another typical mistake: Concealer is meant to go on after foundation, not before. “If you use a sheer dewy foundation first all over the skin, chances are you will need much less concealer,” Carmindy says. “Then just add a spot of matte concealer over any areas that are still visible.” Find out the other concealer tricks you won’t know how you lived without.

Flaunt a pink pout

Sergeizubkov64/shutterstockRed lips look heavy and unnatural, but a pinkish lip color adds a youthful glow. Plus, dark lipstick can “bleed” out of lips into lines around the mouth. “Dark shades will make lips recede,” Carmindy says. “Use a clear or flesh-color lip liner to seal in the color without getting that ring-around-the-lip look.” Also, choose a gloss instead of a matte lipstick for more fullness and shine. and try these other tricks to fake fuller lips.

Cut down on sugar and salt

sugarsumire8/ShutterstockA healthy, youthful body needs healthy nutrients—and to avoid unhealthy ones. “Added sugars and excessive salt intake can increase inflammation in the body, which can accelerate the aging process,” Palinski-Wade says. “Inflammation produces enzymes that break down collagen in the skin. The end result is accelerated wrinkling and sagging of the skin, leading to an aged appearance.” One study found people with a high blood sugar level were perceived to be older; another found salt increased cell aging in overweight people.

Apply blush correctly

skinwavebreakmedia/ShutterstockYou may be trying for shadows to create a high-cheekboned look, but placing blush under cheeks just makes you look bony. Go for a rosy look instead. “Place it high on the apples of the cheeks and use a big fluffy powder brush to apply it in a nice natural flush,” Carmindy says. “Small brushes blend on too much, and placing blush under the cheeks make faces look too angular and severe.” (You should know these other makeup rules by the time you’re 40.)

Have fun with nails

nailsYAKOBCHUK VIACHESLAV/ShutterstockIn one study, nail polish was found to make hands appear younger looking when participants had to guess a women’s age based only on her hands. Carmindy’s rule for nails? There are no rules! “Here is where I say just have fun!” she says. “No rules apply really, as nails are the new accessory.” So feel free to try a fun color like blue, purple, or one of these other hues of polish that every woman must own.

Strive for healthy relationships

relationshipVGstockstudio/ShutterstockLetting go of toxic relationships and nurturing those that are healthy are good for your body as well as your mind. Research shows love releases the “feel good hormone” oxytocin, which can lower blood pressure, and better blood flow leads to a more radiant appearance. “Positive relationships nurture the positive energy in you,” Dr. Orloff says. “Love and appreciation from others makes you happy, more relaxed, and more attractive.”

Drink less alcohol

wineAndreyCherkasov/ShutterstockAs with sugar and salt, it’s best not to overindulge in alcohol because of its negative effects on the body—even at the cellular level, studies have found. “Alcohol can dehydrate skin and increase inflammation, both of which can accelerate aging and give skin a dry, wrinkled appearance,” Palinski-Wade says. Although alcohol may have some health benefits, it’s best to drink in moderation, along with plenty of water. Here are some everyday tips for cutting back on alcohol.

Get strong with protein

chickenMaraZe/ShutterstockOur lean muscle mass is made up of protein, so getting enough in your diet can help build and maintain your muscles to keep fit. “A loss of muscle can lead to a loss of strength and balance, accelerating the aging process,” Palinski-Wade says. “Less defined muscle on the body can also cause the appearance of looser, sagging skin, making you appear older than your biological age.” Focus on plant protein rather than a lot of meat for a healthy diet and stick with these eating habits your 80-year-old self will thank you for.

Treat aging skin

facegoodluz/Shutterstock“Age spots” are really sun-damaged skin. “The key to removing age spots is to exfoliate skin to remove the darkened areas,” Dr. Patel says. Lightening serums may work, and professional chemical peels or laser removal are options, too. “People concerned about age-related spots should consult with their board-certified dermatologist on the best treatment for their case,” Dr. Patel says.

Start strength training

workoutSyda Productions/ShutterstockAll types of exercise are beneficial for maintaining a youthful look, but try to add strength training to your fitness regimen. “Regular strength training, with your own body weight or using external weights, can help to increase metabolism, increase strength, and improve balance,” Palinski-Wade says. “In addition, increased muscle tone helps to provide a more youthful appearance.”

Take a Pilates class

pilatesSyda Productions/ShutterstockPilates will help you stand up straight instead of hunched over, and give you energy to move about. “Pilates can help to increase core strength and improve posture,” Palinski-Wade says. “Holding your body more upright with improved posture improves balance, protects against falls, and helps you look younger.”

Cut layers in long hair

hairwideonet/ShutterstockYou need the right cut to make long hair work for you as you get older. “Some women feel attached to length because they think it makes them look younger, when in fact, it just hangs and doesn’t do anything to flatter or soften features,” says Mast. “Long, heavy hair really pulls down the face. Lifting up layers and adding texture to frame the face will take years off.”

Content continues below ad

Keep a pixie cut modern

hairWAYHOME-studio/ShutterstockIf you opt for shorter hair instead, don’t cut it too short on top. “Often women go ultra short à la Jamie Lee Curtis, but a more updated and softer approach is in the direction of Michelle Williams,” Mast says. “Leaving more length at the crown gives a more feminine, youthful profile, which can be more forgiving for women as we age, especially when it comes to loose skin around the neck.” Not sure what’s would look most flattering on you? These are the best haircuts for your face shape.

Get your beauty rest

sleeplightpoet/ShutterstockBeauty sleep is a real thing—your body needs the rest time (seven to nine hours) to rejuvenate and repair your body’s cells and get gorgeous overnight. You know lack of sleep causes puffy eyes and dark circles, but there are other effects, too. “Lack of sleep dries out your skin, making wrinkles deeper and more visible,” says sleep expert Richard Shane, PhD, creator of the Sleep Easily method. “Collagen production increases during sleep, preventing sagging, and blood flow increases so your complexion looks better and younger.”

Be careful with bangs

bangsKzenon/ShutterstockYou might think bangs hide forehead wrinkles, but that doesn’t mean they should be straight, full curtains across the face, Mast says. “Too often I see women with these awful, unflattering, boxy bangs that they have because they think it makes them look younger, when it really just ages them further,” she says. “If you have bangs that suit you, the bangs will bring out your facial features and distract from your problem areas.” A soft sweep across the forehead may be all that’s needed, and be sure to avoid these other hairstyle mistakes that age your face.

Whiten your teeth

teethAndrey Popov/ShutterstockWhiter teeth can give you a brighter smile and the appearance of a young, fresh mouth. (You can even whiten your teeth naturally at home.) “Yellow or discolored teeth makes people look older and less attractive,” says dentist Nancy Rosen, DMD. You can have your teeth whitened by your dentist in the office with a procedure called Zoom Advanced Whitening, which is the most effective way, she says. Or, “if someone chooses the over-the-counter method, they should make sure they follow the directions. My favorite OTC whitening products are the Crest White Strips.”

Going gray is okay

hairChutima Chaochaiya/ShutterstockAlthough coloring your hair may make you feel younger, don’t feel attached to it. “For some women, upkeep becomes impossible and you actually look younger and fresher with a full head of gray or white natural hair with a gloss over it, rather than fully covered,” Mast says. “It depends on maintenance and the time you are willing to spend.” Tempted to try it? Here’s what happens when you stop coloring your hair.

Or, choose a natural hair color

hairMonthira/ShutterstockIf your grays can easily be covered, you can choose to dye it for a more youthful look. “If you’re salt and pepper and roots don’t become a white line after two weeks, try sticking as close to your natural color and add in neutral-toned highlights no more than two shades lighter,” Mast says. “Avoiding chunky, unnatural highlights and asking for softer babylights will give a much younger appearance.”

Keep your hair loose

hairCorepics VOF/ShutterstockAlthough a tight ponytail may give your face a little lift, ultimately softer, carefree hair provides a more youthful, undone look, Mast says. “If hair is regularly too coiffed, there is a definite feeling of, ‘I put a ton of effort into looking younger,’ versus something that is less tight, less uptight, and more casual with a feeling of effortlessness,” she says. Try one of these easy work hairstyles that are made for the busiest mornings.

Try home remedies for skin rejuvenation

skincareAfrica-Studio/ShutterstockThe old trick of cucumber slices on the eye—as well as other cool things like cold tea bags or sweet potato slices—constricts blood vessels and reduces eye puffiness, Dr. Patel says. Some other home remedies? “Cleaning your skin with lemon juice can lighten sun spots,” she says. “Turmeric helps decrease free radical release.” Try adding the spice to foods, or take an over-the-counter capsule. (Here are natural recipes for amazing skin.)

Content continues below ad

Hide thinning hair

thinchuugo/ShutterstockMenopause rears its ugly head on our heads, too! “I suggest investing in root concealer to fill in the hairline or spray on the scalp where hair is more sheer,” Mast says. “Another tip is to shorten up if you’re getting really thin. Better to have less that looks fuller than long strings of barely there hair.” Volumizing products can also help give more fullness, and hair color that more closely matches your skin tone can better conceal thinning and these natural hair loss remedies are worth a try.

Stay away from teeth-staining foods

wineImYanis/ShutterstockAnother way to keep your teeth white is to avoid consuming things that leave their mark. Avoid “dark soda, red wine, coffee, tea, soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, and red sauce and these other foods and habits that may stain your teeth,” Dr. Rosen says. “The less someone consumes of these products the less stain that will form on your teeth.” Rinsing your mouth with water after, or drinking through a straw may help—but, straws also can cause mouth wrinkles, so that might not be the best option.

Volunteer

volunteerESB Professional/ShutterstockHaving others need you creates positive, rejuvenating feelings that reflect outwardly and there’s a rewarding volunteer option out there for everyone. “Research suggests that community service and compassion can act as a buffer against stressful life events, protecting you from its impact,” says Emma Seppala, PhD, science director of Stanford University’s Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education and author of The Happiness Track.

See your dentist

dentistbezikus/ShutterstockRegular dental checkups and a professional cleaning are crucial for keeping an older mouth and gums looking good. “It’s important to get cleanings at least two times a year,” Dr. Rosen says. “Cleanings remove plaque and calculus from the teeth, which will make someone’s mouth look younger.” In addition, brush properly (Dr. Rosen suggests an electric toothbrush), floss every night, and use a fluoride rinse and consider these other things your dentist wants you to know.

Take care of décolletage

neckAdamBoor/Shutterstock Your décolletage, or chest and neck, can also be a telltale sign of age. (Can’t pronounce décolletage? Find out the other fashion words you’re actually pronouncing completely wrong.) “UV radiation and the sun can damage these exposed areas, causing wrinkles and skin laxity,” Dr. Patel says. “Besides using sunscreen, a serum containing ingredients like retinol, vitamins A and C, ferulic acid as well as a spot-lightening agent can help.”

Meditate or do yoga

yogaLuckyImages/ShutterstockResearch suggests meditation may slow aging by reducing stress, improving well-being, and adjusting hormonal factors, Dr. Seppala says. (Here are more compelling benefits of mediation.) Yoga and deep-breathing can also help increase outward signs of attractiveness. “These techniques help you relax, open your heart, and center yourself—which gives you a more calm, centered appearance rather than being riddled with stress, which increases aging and makes you look older,” Dr. Orloff says.
