5 Tips on Looking and Feeling Sexy Over 40

10/06/2015

For many women, turning 40 is like a death sentence. If you as some women, they will always say they are 39—never admitting to turning the big 4-0. But, it is possible to be proud of your age and show off your sexiness without looking like you are trying too hard.

Here are five ways you can embrace your sexy side, even if you think 40 is too old.

1. Get New Undergarments

It’s no secret that as we age, our bodies go through some changes; and some of those changes aren’t always for the best. Surprise surprise, our boobs are one of the casualties of these changes. Many women have been purchasing the same bras for decades (some haven’t even purchased new ones in that long!). Treat yourself and get measured by a professional. You’ll find that when you wear a properly fitting bra, you will look slimmer, younger, and you will feel more confident! Once you know your correct size, purchase some racy undergarments that are made of lace and satin.

2. Ditch The Make-Up Routine

When we are young, we swear by our foundation, whether it is a powder or a liquid, in an effort to get flawless skin. Unfortunately, nothing packs on the years more than when make-up settles into your laugh lines, crows feet, and other fine lines. Instead of these heavy duty make-up essentials from our youth, embrace your skin and opt for a tinted moisturizer. It will give your skin a youthful glow and if you need to, you can powder your nose and other spots that tend to pack on the oil.

3. Protect Yourself from the Sun

Unfortunately ladies, the sun is the biggest culprit when it comes to aging us. Although we may yearn for that sun kissed skin, you may want to ply yourself with a high SPF. But, just because you are coated in sunblock, that doesn’t mean you can’t rock some sexy shades. Not only will the shades give you a bit of mystery and sex appeal, but they will also help to protect you from crows feet, since you won’t be squinting to see through the sun shining in your face.

4. Change Your Diet

Because our bodies change as we grow older, so does our metabolism. We no longer can burn off that cheeseburger and fries like we once were able to. You may find that by changing your diet, you will have more energy and you will feel better. Too much greasy foods can weigh you down, both figuratively and literally. If you can’t give up your favorite treat, that’s fine. Moderation is essential and you shouldn’t deprive yourself of that you want.

5. Sexiness Comes from Within

In order to truly feel and look sexy, you have to love yourself. Yeah, I know it sounds cliché, but think about it. How will anyone find you attractive and want to get to know you if you are not happy with yourself? Confidence is something that only you can create, and that comes from within. Once you come to the realization that you are amazing, sexy, and worthwhile, then you will start to show it.
