Looking Younger? It’s A Matter Of Routine
The tensions of now and stresses of the future all form to make this one almighty ball of stress that doesn’t just impact our frame of mind, but it shows up on our face! Let’s face it, when we age, we are constantly fighting against Old Mother Time, and there aren’t enough beauty regimes out there for us to take advantage of so that we can disguise the signs of aging. But what’s the trick? It’s all about getting some good quality routines in place so you can fight the good fight…
Practice Facial Exercises
Have you heard about this? There are some facial exercises that have been shown to reduce the signs of aging by three years. As our face invariably sags as we get older, this is because of the fat pads underneath our skin getting thinner. And while there’s not much evidence to show that these facial exercises help scientifically, you only have to look at the before and after pictures of people who’ve tried it to see the impact!
Disguise The Problem Areas
Highlight your attributes, but disguise the areas that make you feel, and look, inadequate. As we get older, gravity takes its toll, and this is where a push up bra really gives you that lift! Apparently, over 80% of women are wearing the wrong size bra. So, if you are doing your breasts a disservice, get fitted at the lingerie store to make sure that you are wearing the right size, and getting the best coverage and support.
Consume More Vitamins
Generally, we don’t consume enough. When it comes to looking younger, there are some essential vitamins and minerals you need. Lycopene, commonly found in tomatoes, gives your skin protection against UV rays. But also, vegetables like kale are full of vitamin k, which helps the coagulation of your blood. This will limit your bruising. In addition to this, healthy oils, such as omega-3 fatty acids, commonly found in fish, is going to give your skin a youthful glow.
Drink More Water
This is the key. Lots of us don’t drink enough to hydrate our skin. If your skin looks dull and dry, this will mean more wrinkles forming. Instead, to make your skin look plumper, drink more water, and reduce the amount of dehydrating foods and drinks, such as alcohol, sugar, and salt, but also cut down on smoking. We all know that if we want to look 25 years older than we actually are, then smoking is the best way to get there quick!
To look younger, it’s about making sure that you look great on the outside, but you’ll feel great on the inside. Stress, and specifically, worrying about your looks is going to pile on the stress, which is going to add more wrinkles, and it becomes a never-ending cycle. Instead, as well as having a beauty routine, take the time to calm down. This means practicing something like mindfulness, but also learning how to manage your stress will reduce the amount of cortisol, the stress hormone, that will age you terribly.
