Magazines are filled with articles counseling women on how to look younger, but what about men?

The aging process affects both men and women equally, and most men would probably appreciate tips on how to look young and energetic, even if they don’t want to admit it.  Who wouldn’t want to look their best for their next high school reunion or big job interview?  Let’s look at a few proven tricks for turning back the clock and looking your best.

1.  Tooth Whitening

Gleaming white teeth can make anyone look younger and more vibrant, male or female.  Whitening toothpastes are great for everyday use, and can be found at any drugstore or supermarket.  Special whitening strips can also be purchased over the counter, and can erase years of stains in just a few uses.  For more stubborn problems, a consultation with your dentist can provide professional whitening options for every budget.  These safe and painless procedures can remove even the toughest stains.

Once you’ve had a whitening treatment, try to minimize future staining by limiting your consumption of coffee and red wine, and brushing your teeth regularly.

2.  Hair Transplants

Hair loss is every man’s worst fear.  Nothing can make you feel older than seeing that receding hairline or bald spot on top.  Fortunately, balding doesn’t have to be a life sentence.  Hair transplants are a safe, minimally invasive way to reverse this problem and take years off your appearance.   Old transplant techniques used to result in a clumpy, artificial look; today’s state-of-the-art techniques enable the transplant of one hair follicle at a time, creating a natural, undetectable solution to baldness.  Even your barber won’t know your secret!

Although the cost of a hair transplant can vary among physicians, it’s generally an affordable procedure.  At your consultation, your physician will evaluate your hair loss and recommend the best hair-transplant approach for you.  Your doctor may also recommend medications such as Rogaine or Propecia in conjunction with your hair transplant. 

3.  Exercise and Diet

Excess weight and a flabby physique can make any man look old before his time.  If the extra pounds are adding years to your appearance, try to devise a weight loss plan that will work for you.   Although many different diet and exercise regimens are available, some basic concepts are universal:  reducing caloric intake, choosing low-fat foods, and increasing your overall activity level.  To be safe, always consult with your doctor before beginning any weight loss plan.

Small changes in your lifestyle can add up to big results:  just walking places instead of taking the car, for example, can burn a significant amount of calories in the long term.  Similarly, cutting out even one unhealthy snack a day is an easy way to trim down your calorie intake without overhauling your whole diet. 

Even if you make the effort to try all these tricks, don’t forget the most powerful beauty secret of all:  a great attitude.  A big smile and an air of confidence can shave years off your appearance.  When you feel good about yourself, you look good too!
