Being asked of age may be one of the topics people have been trying to avoid because aging seems like a big deal that they don’t want to be asked of it at all. But you need not to hide or lie because you can actually do something to conceal how old you really are by tweaking your habits and routines. You know, little changes can go a long way! Check out today’s anti-aging tips that will keep everyone guessing what your real age is.
Wear sunscreen protection
Even in the winter, you should wear sunscreen to avoid the aging caused by sun exposure. Choose products containing at least SPF 30 to protect your skin from getting exposed to the harmful UV rays of the sun, particularly when participating in sports events wherein you sweat too much and you are under the sun for hours.
Apply a night cream
Before hitting the sack, nourish your skin and help it self-repair by wearing an organic night cream loaded with anti0xidants that fight off skin damage, including wrinkles and fine facial lines. And speaking of night cream, you should also invest in a good eye cream that will take care of your eyes in particular. Buy a specially-formulated one that works against dark circles, wrinkles and fine lines.
Use a gentle facial scrub
Even if you’re not spending long hours under the sun, your skin may start looking leathery as you age, and this happens due to the buildup of dead, old skin cells. In order to get rid of it, you should clean and scrub your face that can slough off the top layer of your skin.
Stick to or plan a healthy diet
One of the main factors affecting aging is a poor diet, composed of fried, processed, preserved, salty and sweet food. To fight the effects of premature aging, let go of poor eating habits and instead opt for the healthy one composed of more fruits (oranges, lemons, bananas..), nuts (almonds, cashews…), white lean meat and vegetables (broccoli, asparagus, kale…) that contain high levels of antioxidants.
They help eliminate free radicals that destroy healthy cells and make you look older than you really are. You can also opt for more fish in your diet, and some good choices include mackerel, salmon and tuna (all of which contain high levels of Omega-3 fatty acids). If you’re not a fan of fish, check out fish oil found in supplements for its anti-aging help and for protection it offers the brain, heart and joints.
The body is composed of over 70 percent water. It’s a no-brainer that you should keep it hydrated for younger looking skin. Water also helps keep off dehydration signs, including fine lines, under eye dark circles and fine facial lines. Drink eight glasses of water daily, and increase it as you become more active.
So, don’t wait. Try incorporating these good habits into your lifestyle and start feeling and looking young today.
Finally, talking about and revealing your real age isn’t always a topic to avoid but actually to be proud of. Because above all, aging isn’t skin deep, but it just means you have been an accomplished person all these years and now you just have more to share with the people around you.
Perhaps, feeling good inside and embracing what you become as you age is the most important of all, as being happy and stress-free also leads to feeling and looking younger longer.
