To preserve youth, beauty and health is the dream of many. Some to achieve this goal are ready to swallow handfuls of miraculous pills, others – to spend a fortune on rejuvenating cosmetic procedures. But there are simpler and more affordable ways.
How To Look Younger Than Your Age
- Eyes: Wear Sunglasses
It is no coincidence that sales of sunglasses with colored lenses increase every day significantly. Such glasses are very useful for vision! The reason is simple: filtration of UV radiation up to the 3rd category. It means that the risks of various diseases for our eyes become less.
Tinted glasses help protect the macula (the central part of the retina, i.e. the macula), which inevitably ages with age. Besides, glasses “protect” the eyes from dust and dirt. They reduce the risk of eye injuries and dry (burning) eyes. And they also save us from squinting in the sun. It is one of the reasons for the formation of a net of wrinkles around the eyes.
- Body: Avoid Bad Habits
Bad habits such as eating junk food, drinking alcohol, using drugs, and smoking lead to poor health. Sitting more and not doing any physical activity equally ruins the system of the body. As a result, a person looks older than the age.
But to stay young you have to be careful about what you eat and what you do. You need to get rid of all these habits especially drinking. It causes so many problems you are not even aware of. A good solution is to get help from an expert. You can either join an alcohol rehab center or try to be better by yourself.
- Smile: Declare War on Tartar
A toothbrush and floss is not a panacea for tartar. When plaque builds up, it makes our teeth less protected and increases the risk of them falling out. We need not only regular hygienic but also periodic professional cleaning of our teeth and gums. It allows them to stay healthy and strong for longer.
After cleaning, the dentist polishes the surface of the teeth and applies special products that not only protect but also brighten the enamel. It also allows us to look younger!
- Posture: Keep Your Back Straight
We poke our children when they start to slouch, but we’d better take precautions ourselves. A straight back is both useful and beautiful. When you try to keep your back straight while walking, you automatically draw in your stomach, straighten your shoulders and move your shoulder blades.
A good habit (when you go to the store or while waiting at a bus stop) is to force yourself to straighten your back by joining your fingers behind your back. By the way, in yoga, there is an excellent asana – “Tadasana” (mountain pose), which is ideal for “straightening” the back.
- Face: Massage Movements
It is possible to effectively fight wrinkles and keep a young face not only with the help of invasive techniques! Master these four easy massage movements and practice them after your traditional evening skin cleansing ritual. Such messages not only improve microcirculation and the tone of the epidermis but also perfectly relax.
Use a few drops of vegetable oil (such as almond oil) or some of your regular night cream to “nourish” and even better stimulate the skin.
How To Massage Your Face For Better Skin
- Place your palms at the base of your nose, as if taking it in your palm, gently press, closing your palms, first on one side, and then on the other side. Continue pressing alternately for a few seconds.
- Gently stroke the upper eyelids in a circular motion (no pressure!), Moving from the inner corner of the eye to the outer corner. Return to the starting point, passing under the eyes, and slightly stretch (gently!)
- Move your palms along your cheeks to your ears. Press lightly on your face and close your ears, hold your hands in this position for several minutes. Repeat one more time.
- Place your palms on your forehead with your fingers facing each other. While looking at your crossed fingers, gently massage your forehead from the brow ridges to the hairline. Finish the massage with light, barely perceptible strokes along the entire face.
- Skin: Cleanse and Moisturize
As we age, the repair of skin cells is slower and the complexion often becomes unhealthy. To regain your blooming appearance, first of all, take care of your skin with good cleansing once or twice a week. After cleansing, apply a moisturizing mask to invigorate your skin.
You can also change your usual daycare for a fruit acid cream (best applied in the evening). And by visiting a dermatologist, you can take a course of deeper peels (for example, with glycolic acids). Very soon you will be able to see the result – the skin will become more toned and radiant.
- Sleep: Sound and Healthy
When you stop getting enough sleep (it’s more difficult for you to fall asleep, you constantly wake up during the night), change the regimen. Your goal is to make sleep sound and deep so that it gives rest to the body. Follow your biorhythms whenever possible.
You need to get up every day at the same time, even if the night was difficult, or you had to go to bed later. Remember, a good night’s sleep helps you stay young!
- Relationships: Make Love more Often
The pleasant sensations that you feel during hugs and kisses contribute to the production of endorphins, hormones of pleasure. In addition to bliss and a sea of positive emotions, an active sex life carries another bonus. It is excellent prevention and protection of the cardiovascular system.
- Mood: Optimists Live Longer
Numerous studies confirm that positive thinking “pacifies”, while negative thoughts produce anxiety and stress. In turn, chronic depression raises blood pressure, impairs metabolism, and provokes many more unpleasant things. This is why pessimists age faster! Optimistic people are constantly on the move, they are always busy with something.
Everyone wants to look fresh and young. However, our habits sometimes don’t allow that. You need to take care of yourself for looking younger than the actual age.
