Beyond Wrinkles: 7 Beauty Mistakes That Make You Look Old
Sure, an aging complexion contributes to your overall appearance but looking older is about a lot more than just wrinkles
Yellow, dingy teethWhile lipstick bleeding into one's lip lines certainly ages you, yellow, stained, uneven teeth do too. In this day and age when there are so many whitening, brightening and straightening options available and at every price point imaginable, it's almost inconceivable that anyone would deliberately walk around with a less than dazzling set of chompers.
Try this instead: Whether you want a super quick fix a la Rembrandt 2 Hour Whitening Kit, $19.49 or to commit more time (and money) by getting trays made at your dentist's office, the choice is one you should definitely make. "Nothing ages a person more than a yellow smile," says Dr. Michael Apa, a partner in The Rosenthal/Apa Group on New York City's Upper East Side. He recommends getting a professional whitening treatment done twice a year, staying away from foods that stain teeth -- like ketchup, blueberries and red wine -- and tells his patients to use a whitening toothpaste saying that Crest Weekly Clean, $12.50 is a good product that contains silica ingredients that work to brush stains away.
