It’s an equation we have being trying to solve since the start of modern society. How can I stop the aging process and look as fresh faced as my early twenties? As much as I would love to point out some form of youth potion like Death Becomes Her, we aren’t quite there yet… I do however have a few tips that can look to rejuvenate your skin, to make you feel fresher. Age is nothing but a number right? Follow some of these tips and you will notice the benefits!
A lot of people wouldn’t think it, but your diet can take its toll on your skin. For every negative outcome bad foods have, there are plenty of things you can eat that can make a difference. Within a healthy diet the word fats doesn’t usually come up very often. There are in fact ‘good fats’ (I know, it surprised me too) which you will find in food like salmon and almonds. Good fats can help increase the firmness in your skin whilst keeping it supple; this is because of the boosts in hydration they give. What you need to try and stay away from is high levels of saturated fats. Saturated fats can increase something called free radical damage which can actually make your skin susceptible to aging.
It is really important to make sure that you have a full cleanse of your face regularly each night. Throughout the day your face will pick up all sorts of dirt and bacteria and if you mix that in with that days make up I can have a negative effect on your skin. If you don’t do this these factors actually antagonise your skin by clogging your pores. A cleaner face on a night time will also benefit your anti-aging products as they have more access to your skin.
Everyone loves having a tan and sunbed shops around the country are usually packed to the rims. A healthy glow is fine, try to stick to natural sunlight (with sunscreen) or fake tan as an alternative to hitting those beds. Whilst sunbeds can give you the bronze look you are looking for, they can also have a negative effect. Without even touching on the health risks they have, sunbeds can dry out your skin which can bring on wrinkles you didn’t have or make the ones you do seem a lot more prominent.
Procedures and Beauty Treatments
The closest thing we have to some sort of youth magic wand is the procedures and treatments we have available to us. Endless amounts of beauty trends/treatments can always be found online. There are so many social media pages that will keep you update with the latest rage. Another option is a local beauty clinic. There is nothing I love more than visiting my local clinic Sono Bello, even if it is just popping in for a chat about the options I have. The fantastic treatments they have available always make me feel refreshed and glamorous. Keep yourself fresh, look and feel amazing!
