Attention all gracefully aging/aged people: what practical beauty/fashion/makeup/skincare/LIFE tips can you offer me, a 20 year old woman, who also wants to age beautifully (Inside and Out?)

I'm 20 and I use sunscreen on a regular basis, try to smile rather than frown all the time, eat all my veggies and fruit, work on on a mildly moderate basis, take care of my skin (all natural homemade masks and scrubs over anything with stuff I can't pronounce!) and hair (down to my butt and totally healthy!)...
However, I have a few questions. Ladies who are particularly busty, how do I take care of my breasts? I have huge boobs (32 DD) and am unsure--am I supposed to be wearing a bra 24/7 because of the horrors of gravity, or am I to leave them free to grow strong? Am I to give them massages? What should I do to help minimize sagging in the future?
Also, how do YOU take care of your skin? What are your number one skin tips as you get older to maintain a glow and preserve skin health? I know about using SPF and try to drink proper amounts of water, but do you have any tried and tested tips?
Fashion/makeup/beauty-wise: What are some of your favorite classic looks/tips/etc? And how has your look grown and evolved over the years?
I'd like to hear all and any input about my question, which I know is very broad. I am happy to hear about how to maintain my physical and external beauty and how you ladies and gentlemen have done so.
But I also am rather anxious about how I look, very critical of my physical self, feeling differently about myself based on peoples' reactions to me, feeling as though if I'm not noticed I'm ugly...I feel as though this anxiety is not adding to my inner OR outer beauty, is actually taking away from it. It is taking all of my good energy and converting it into crap =/
So if anyone has any experience as to how I can alleviate this anxiety of how I look and be HAPPY in my own gracefully aging skin, I'd be happy to hear!!
Thank you so much =)
