We all want to stay youthful looking forever, or at least as long as possible. There are hundreds of products on the market that say they can reduce the signs of aging. But many people are looking for ways to prevent those signs appearing in the first place. You can try to avoid the early signs of aging appearing until you reach your forties with some of these simple tips:
Diet - Yes, it’s true what they say. If you avoid junk food, your skin and body can stay looking fresh and young for longer. Of course, it’s easier said than done. The idea is that fresh foods containing vitamins E and C can fight the damage of free radicals to your skin. This is thought to keep your cells looking younger because they don’t need to be replaced as often. The more often your cells regenerate, the older looking they become.
Exercise - Circulation is key to a healthy glow. If you can keep your circulation healthy, then your skin should look good. Of course, exercise also makes us sweat that can help push out all the toxins from our body. Exercise also tones the muscles, giving our bodies a more shapely appearance. This helps us look and feel more youthful. Keeping excess weight off through exercise and diet can give the impression we are younger than our peers too.
Exfoliate - It is thought that sloughing off the top layers of the skin can help reveal fresher looking skin underneath. This action will definitely smooth the skin and improve the circulation to give you a healthy looking glow. The trick is not to overdo it, in case you make the skin sore. Older skin needs a gentler skin care routine.
Moisturizers - Keeping the skin cleansed, toned and moisturized helps it to appear as fresh as it can. Some anti aging creams are a great way to keep your skin moisturized. They also contain additional ingredients to improve the appearance of wrinkles. Look into reviews on Lifecell and other creams that are popular at the moment to see if one suits you.
Sleep - It’s true that having kids makes us look older. This is the time in our lives when we are the most sleep deprived! Getting plenty of quality sleep helps the body work its own magic to regenerate our cells. It also ensures we stay relaxed, reducing the harmful effects of stress on our body that cause us to look and feel older.
Makeup - We will all age, but clever makeup artistry can help hide some of those tell-tale signs on our faces. Permanent treatments and surgery may not be necessary right now. But a touch of foundation and eye makeup can reduce the appearance of baggy eyes. Use mascara and eyeliner to disguise thinning eyelashes, and blusher to enhance the cheekbones.
Getting older is inevitable, but you don’t have to feel old, and you don’t have to look old. Take your skin care and health seriously, and you can ward off the effects of aging for many years.
