The aging process is inevitable, but I’m not going down without a fight! Luckily, I still have youth on my side, and that’s the best place to start protecting yourself. The earliest signs of aging start to creep in on your face and skin. And, experts say the first effects begin to take hold in your late twenties. So, it’s never too early start! The better you look after yourself now, the longer you’ll extend your life, and ward off those pesky aging signs.
But first, what are those signs of aging? Well, it all starts with your skin. The face is almost always the first telltale sign. The eyes start to tire, and lines begin to burrow into your brow. The hands begin to show the first signs of age too. You may also notice it in your hair, as it turns dry and thin. These are all symptoms of the same few lifestyle elements. Today, I’ll show you how to reverse them.
Stress has a habit of showing up on our bodies. We hold tension in our back and shoulders. This gives our bodies a hunched appearance. We hold our tightness in a very visible position. Not only that, but stress is visible in our eyes. We hold our worries and stresses there, and the dark circles grow darker and bigger. Take active steps to reduce stress and you’ll watch it drain from your body. Take up yoga, and learn to centre yourself for twenty minutes every day. Don’t take on more than you can handle, and learn to take things in your stride.
Get a better night’s sleep
There’s a reason they call it beauty sleep! Your natural eight hours are the best way to rejuvenate your skin and replenish your cells. As you sleep, the body repairs damaged cells and brings them back to life. That’s what gives your skin that natural glow. By cutting your sleep cycle short, you interrupt this process. Your skin will look dry and cold. Try to get an early night and plenty of rest!
Increase natural anti-oxidants
Most people tend to turn to the pharmacy or beauty stores when trying to reverse the aging process. We see the TV adverts for creams, serums, and treatments. But, we tend to forget that all the best options are right under our nose. Natural foods and liquids are the best way to reverse those signs of aging. Eating a better diet and drinking lots of water is a more effective method than any of those expensive creams! Even herbal tea and berries are natural anti-oxidants that clear the skin effectively.
Of course, some treatments do work wonders. I find that microdermabrasion is particularly effective. It scrubs away the dead skin, revealing the younger, beautiful skin underneath! I like to treat myself to one session a month, and it helps fight off those pesky aging signs. One of my friends also recommends acupuncture, but I’ve yet to try it!
The face is the first place to show those telltale signs of aging. I’m still young, but it’s never too early to start!
