Aging is a natural part of life. Unfortunately signs of aging can show up on your face in the form of wrinkles, frown lines, and age spots, not to mention your hair. You may have a friend who seems to bathe in the fountain of youth, never aging and always glowing. Unfortunately, not everyone is this fortunate! However for those who wish to slow the aging process down, there is hope in maintaining a youthful appearance! Not only is aging inevitable, but it’s something we all have to face eventually.
Here are 5 ways to defy your age:
- Treat Yourself
Whether you treat yourself to a spa day or a little BOTOX, it all starts with taking care of yourself! Like the saying goes, when you look good, you feel good! A day at the spa is a great way to look and feel young again. Get a stress-relieving massage, get your hair done or indulge in an expensive face cream. There’s nothing wrong with pampering yourself every once in a while. It will pay off as you watch your biological clock stand still.
- Eat Healthy
Beautiful hair and skin starts with what you put inside your body. Eating healthy and incorporating skin-nourishing berries, wild salmon, sweet potatoes and green tea into a well-balanced diet will help maintain the look and feel of your skin. You are essentially wearing your vitamins! If maintaining healthy skin is your concern, foods containing vitamins A, C, and E, and polyphenols (antioxidants that have anti-inflammatory properties that protect and benefit the skin) should be your new best friend. Stray away from age accelerators like sugar!
The phrase, use it or lose it rings true when it comes to exercising. Setting aside 10-30 minutes a day for exercise gets your heart rate pumping and keeps your body rejuvenated and alive. Exercise releases endorphins and is a great remedy for stress. Taking stress out of your life is extremely beneficial to remaining youthful because stress often shows on your face in the form of wrinkles. In addition, age can also be revealed through your body’s figure, so get in shape! If you can’t find the time to keep active, stretching and/or meditating for a few minutes every day is better than nothing. Some people find gyms intimidating and expensive. Taking part in an activity you actually enjoy doing such as dancing or playing a sport with your friends is a great way to get active and have fun.
- Protect Your Skin
Invest in a good moisturizer. Period. Your skin is the number one revealer of your age. The upmost care and attention should be given to nourishing and protecting your skin. A moisturizer with SPF is always a good idea. The sun may feel great on your skin, but it can be detrimental to your health. Sun damage is easy to avoid if you cover up and wear a moisturizer containing SPF. Let’s keep those sunspots away! Also, keeping your skin from drying out is a sure way to make it look and feel young and fresh. Achieving healthy skin begins with using the highest quality skin care products. Vivier Pharma medical grade skin care solutions bring a pharmaceutical approach to skin care products. VivierSkin products are ideal for many skin types and conditions from dry, sensitive skin to hyperpigmentation and anti-aging. Show the world your skin and live young!
- Adequate Sleep
Sleep allows our brain and bodies to rest and reboot. Getting the appropriate amount of sleep is necessary for our bodies to repair so we can put our best face forward in the mornings. Sleep deprivation can show on your face with tired eyes and bags (not the designer kind). Aim to get between 7-8 hours of restful sleep a night. Adjust your lifestyle to ensure you get the proper amount of sleep and you will look and feel rested and refreshed! For droopy, wrinkled eyelids there’s also an iLidLift™ treatment available. This 100% Blade-Free Cosmetic Eyelid surgery can reduce loose skin, surplus fatty tissue and relaxed muscles in the eyelids, to produce a more youthful, lively appearance!
