It’s not fair — Some people just don’t seem to age, while others look 20 years older than they actually are. Is there some anti-aging secret those ageless beauties are hoarding to themselves?
While some of our aging comes down to genetics, you can also bring out your youthful glow through several anti-aging tips and tricks.
Fish oil is a natural anti-inflammatory that’s been proven to slow down the aging process. It can help your hair grow, beautify your skin, and support healthy heart and immune functions.
A healthy diet will help you live longer, and look better as you do. Eat lots of fruits and veggies — especially green, leafy vegetables, berries, and herbs — and avoid white sugar as much as you can (your sweet tooth can be tamed over time!).
Give yourself 20 minutes a day to stretch and/or meditate. Focusing on your breathing will calm you, and allow you to face your stresses with a greater ease. You’ll feel better, and it will show.
Women in India make a tea of ginger and honey each day. It’s believed to help reduce fine lines in the skin through honey’s natural anti-bacterial properties that help reduce inflammation and ginger’s antioxidant properties that help protect against collagen breakdown.
Should we just call this miracle oil? It sure seems like a miracle. From clearing up acne to easing fine lines and wrinkles to moisturizing dry skin, coconut oil packs a powerful anti-aging punch. It also acts as a natural sunscreen! And if you ingest it, you can help restore elasticity to your skin.
In our overworked, over-stressed world, sleep is often one of the first things to go. We tell ourselves we can survive on five hours of sleep night after night, not realizing how it’s affecting our bodies — and not understanding that it’s actually contributing to our aging. As difficult as it is, schedule 8 hours of sleep a night. You’ll notice quickly that it’s the right move to make.
Exercise regularly flies out the window as well, and it’s understandable why. Who has time to get out and sweat? There are children to take care of, deadlines to meet, bosses to answer to, and chores to be done. But exercise has more benefits on your health than you can count. It also supports detoxification and improves your lean muscle mass, leading to a more youthful appearance.
Moisturizers help plump up fine lines and prevent skin aging. Using moisturizer leads to skin repair and increases skin elasticity. Smile lines won’t be so prominent — and that’s a good thing, because when you follow these tips, you’ll be smiling a lot more often!
