The march of time is inexorable. We age as we grow older. Growing old is unavoidable, but looking and feeling old is optional. If you take care of your health, you’ll stay fitter, disease-free, and also look younger.
Here are some easy-to-implement tips to maintain your health and look young.
Implement the above tips to maintain youthful looks or regain the charm of yore that you may have lost due to enjoying the good life or simply not taking care of yourself. These healthy habits are any day a better alternative than going under the cosmetic surgeon’s knife or turning to silicone or botox.
Take care of your hands
Wrinkly, scaly, and aged-looking hands stand out, more so if you’ve taken good care of your facial complexion but have neglected the hands. Our hands are exposed not just to the elements but also to rough treatment. Make it a routine to moisturize your hands whenever you use a moisturizer for your face. Retinol is a proven anti-wrinkle compound found in green and yellow vegetables. Use retinol-based creams for your hands at night. Apply a layer of Vaseline over to ensure that the skin absorbs the retinol. Exfoliate once a week with facial scrubs. This will remove the dead skin cells, expose the supple and radiant skin underneath, and also stimulate collagen generation.
Use a Moisturizer
Hydrated skin stays healthy and appears smoother and fuller. Fine wrinkles get filled out and disappear. There are different types of moisturizers, and you should choose the one best suited to your skin type – dry, oily, or a combination of both. Moisturizers combat dryness and fight skin damage caused by UV exposure.
Take Care Of Teeth
Don’t let your teeth spoil the effect of a radiant face. Tobacco, tea, coffee, and wine can stain teeth. Brush your teeth regularly. An easy-to-make paste of hydrogen peroxide and baking soda, when applied to teeth, and rinsed off after one minute, is one of the best natural remedies for yellow teeth. Apple cider vinegar is an easily available condiment and you can use its mild bleaching and anti-microbial properties to clear yellow stains and improve oral hygiene.
Exercise every day. Working out benefits both muscles and organs. When you’re healthy from within, it shows outside. Your skin appears healthy, you maintain correct posture, and the body is stimulated to generate neurotransmitters that keep you cheerful. Exercise boosts collagen production, this protein is essential for healthy skin.
