With age comes wisdom, confidence, and experience. But less conveniently, it also comes with wear and tear to our skin and bodies, that can leave us looking older than we feel.
The aging process is natural and beautiful. But there are some simple ways to support your body and your skin so your assent to maturity is as graceful as possible. So if you’re looking for some age-fighting beauty tips, check out the list below.
Water, Water Everywhere!
When it comes to your skin’s health, water is everything. You should be drinking at least eight large glasses a day. It’s as simple as that.
So if you’re not already in a routine, try drinking a glass of water first thing when you get up, before every meal, a couple of hours before bed, and whenever it occurs to you throughout the day. Not only will this keep your skin hydrated and help you digest your food, it also helps keep hunger and weight gain at bay. Very often, when we get a hunger pang, it’s actually our bodies telling us to hydrate. Drink a glass of water first, then see what you need.
Start Taking Your Sleep Seriously
Getting your eight hours sleep a night isn’t just fantastic for your energy levels, concentration, your physical and mental health, and your immune system.
A healthy sleep routine also does wonders for your skin and helps prevent the more extreme elements of the aging process. Good sleep hygiene will help you get proper rest, reduce stress and anxiety, and give your body and brain time to rejuvenate ready for the next day.
Enhance Your Features
Some people were born lucky. Most of us have to try a little harder to feel great about the way we look. If something about your physical features has really succumbed to aging and it’s easy to fix, there’s nothing wrong with seeking a little help to find a solution.
Procedures like jaw and chin definition, non-surgical nose jobs, and Kanvas Botox treatments are common, affordable, and restore your confidence. Giving your features a little boost is a great way to restore your natural beauty.
Protect Your Skin
Skin is a delicate, living organ that has to deal with a lot – sunshine, pollution, grubby hands and chemicals. It also gets damaged more easily than people tend to think. So one of the most effective things you can do to combat the aging process is to protect your skin from damage.
Use sunscreen every day, even if you’re not going to be in direct sunlight for very long. Keep your hands clean and avoid touching your face if they are dirty.
Be careful to rinse off dirt, make-up and pollutants from your face every evening before you go to bed. And moisturise – your skin needs moisture to regenerate. Without it, it’ll dry out and look palid.
Physical Health, Outside Beauty
People who look good usually spend a lot of time and effort on their physical health. So if you’re on a quest to look your best, you need to think about your physical health as a whole, and make lasting changes to your diet, exercise and ‘leisure activities’.
As a general rule, fruit and veggies, nuts, seeds, and home-cooked meals will give your body the nutrition it needs to rejuvenate and stay healthy. Avoid heavily processed food, save sugar just for special treats, cut out the alcohol and if you smoke: just quit. Now.
