It’s inevitable…….We are all going to age and there is nothing that we can do to prevent it. However, there are many things that we can all do to keep ourselves looking much younger than we actually are and they are relatively simple and won’t take a lot of time.
Here are 8 things that we all must do to keep looking young even though we are getting older:
- Apply sunscreen
The simple step of applying sunscreen every day can minimize the amount of wrinkles you have on your body. According to some expert’s the UV rays from the sun can cause up to ninety percent of the wrinkles that a person has on their body. I don’t know about you, but spending five minutes a day applying sunscreen is well worth the fewer wrinkles that we would have in a few years.
- Wear a hat
The sun can be very damaging to your face, so even though you apply sunscreen, it is still recommended that you wear a hat when you are outside. The hat should have a very large brim to keep the sun off your face.
- Wear sunglasses
If you are beginning to get wrinkles around your eyes, then you will want to wear sunglasses to prevent future wrinkles from occurring. As an added bonus, the sunglasses will also prevent the sun from damaging your eyes.
- Stay hydrated
Your skin can only be healthy if it has enough moisture and this moisture comes from drinking fluids. Water is always the best choice, but in reality, drinking something is better than drinking nothing at all.
The more you exercise, the more your blood will circulate through your body. Increased circulation allows the nutrients to flow through your body faster and it removes waste faster too. This ensures that your skin will be healthy and always glowing.
- Don’t smoke
Smoking is bad for so many reasons, but it can also cause wrinkles and skin damage. Smoking will cause anyone’s natural aging process to speed up, which is something that none of us want.
Yes, applying sunscreen is a lotion, but our skin is introduced to numerous elements throughout the year. Therefore, it is necessary to apply moisturizer to prevent your skin from drying out. Continuous moisturizer use can attribute to healthier and younger looking skin. A good choice for a lotion is an anti-aging cream, because they have special ingredients that include retinol, vitamin c, hydroxy acids, coenzyme Q10, tea extracts, and grape seed extract.
- Eat healthy foods
Foods that are full of antioxidants are better for your skin and these foods can prevent premature aging. Some of the best foods for your skin include carrots, apricots, spinach, kale, tomatoes, blueberries, beans, nuts, peas, salmon, and mackerel.
These are just some of the ways that you can prevent your skin from showing your true age. We would love to hear if you have any tips that keep you looking younger than you actually are.
