It’s no secret that younger-looking, more attractive people tend to get more and better jobs than people who look older and less attractive. More and more, companies are looking for youthful, vibrant employees who can think outside the box and aren’t hindered by, and mired in, the past. At the same time, they still want to hire employees with experience in their fields. If you have a youthful look, an outgoing personality, and a résumé full of relevant experience, you’ll be a shoe-in anywhere you go. Here are some aesthetic tips for getting your next job.
Your Hair Means More than You Might Think
We’ve all met someone, at one point or another, who was balding or going gray early. We always assume they’re older than they actually are. A full (non-gray) head of hair makes everyone look younger. Coloring hair is easy and only takes an hour or two every four to six weeks, but what do you do if you’re losing your hair?
Men losing their hair may opt to shave it all off. This is a timeless and accepted look. Unfortunately, women don’t have the same option. A woman losing her hair is automatically thought to be both older and sickly. While men may look a bit older with a balding pate, if a woman is balding, assumptions are much worse.
If you notice hair loss at more than a normal rate (it’s normal to lose about fifty to a hundred hairs per day without thinning), you should immediately consult your doctor and/or start using a product like Regaine to stop and reverse the hair loss process. You don’t want to look old or ill when you’re actually still young and vibrant.
Hitting the Gym and Moisturizing Your Skin Will Do Wonders
Get your cardio! If you workout for twenty to thirty minutes per day, five days a week, you’ll be on track to stay heart-healthy and trim for years to come. You may be in your forties or fifties, but if you walk with a spring in your step and keep a trim waistline, people won’t ever think you’re older than your thirties.
At the same time, especially if you spend a lot of time outside, make sure you care for your skin. The sun can do a lot of damage, but you can protect your skin by using a moisturizer with SPF protection or slathering on some sun block on your face and neck whenever you go outside. You’ll prevent premature wrinkles and keep your face looking as young as your body.
