    Look older because of working hard the past few days

    Is the second sentence correct: Martini looked at Jem. She had become 10 years older within the past few days (e.g.,because of working hard these few days).

    And should I replace become with looked?

    "Martini looked at Jem. She seemed to have aged ten years in the past few days."
