How To Look Ten Years Younger: Book Review
In her recently released book How Not to Look old: Fast and Effortless Ways to Look 10 Years Younger, 10 Pounds Lighter and 10 Times Better , veteran Today Show style expert and former Glamour beauty director Charla Krupp shares her vast knowledge and advice on how to stay clear of anything old ladyish and keep your entire look fresh and up-to-date.
Geared toward the 40+-aged woman, Krupp is clear on the specifics of style and is sympathetic to and understanding of the downfalls of aging as only one with experience could be.
This book is a super tutorial for those of us who have been busy these last few years (or ten) and forgot to renew our subscriptions to all the best fashion and style magazines. Or maybe some of us just stopped caring. Either way, Krupp can get you back on track with her simple to follow instructions for just about everything related to style.
She provides detailed instructions on how to properly use makeup to look look younger, the right hairstyle for your face and age, hair color advice and even clothes and shoes. This comprehensive book is packed with full color instructions, and before and after photos. My personal favorite is the section on how to pick the perfect glasses to compliment your face.
She is not suggesting that we all go out and try to look twenty and dress in super trendy styles. In fact, she clearly advises against that and encourages women to dress appropriate for their age with the proper attention to keeping an updated look.
If looking great has become a chore that you don’t feel like dealing with, this book will motivate you with its quick and easy ways to change your appearance for a dramatic difference. She also reviews all of the best products from wrinkle diminishing creams to the perfect bra, all of which she has personally tested.
Admittedly, we live in a youth obsessed culture. The object of this book is not necessarily to look like a teenager again, but to look and feel your absolute best, regardless of age.
