They say that you are as old as you feel, so some people never seem to get old just because they do things young people do and feel just as happy in their bodies as they should be. They have probably discovered the fountain of youth, we often think, but the truth is that they have only discovered the secret to slow down ageing process. Here is a list of things young-looking people do every day in order to keep their looks fresh even in senior years.
If you want to feel younger than your early age, and if you want your body to stay young, the key step is healthy diet. If you are taking a lot of unhealthy food, such as spicy and hot food, pizza, sodas and the like, then you should replace them with fruits and vegetables. They are a natural source of vitamins and contain all the ingredients your body needs to develop normally and stay young. Avoid juices and sweets with added sugar to avoid sugar attaching to your blood. Instead, eat food which contains proteins (such as turkey, egg whites, fish) and natural sugars. Instead of drinking coffee, drink herbal teas. Green tea is excellent detoxicant and it contains the so called ‘teine’, which is tea’s natural equivalent to caffeine, though it has better effects on the body.
It cannot be stressed enough how much is exercise good for your body. Not only do you strengthen the muscles and their tone, but as you get older you will remain flexible and will not have problems with moving. Exercise is not only good for avoiding heart problems by enhancing blood flow, but it helps in looking and feeling younger, since all cells in your body get enough nutrients from the blood and can easily fight fat. If you do not feel like going to the gym, you can try easier things, like jogging or walking. Walks are an excellent cardio-vascular activity, especially if you live in a mountainous area, where you get the combination of steep walking paths and fresh air.
For starters, avoid alcohol and cut down cigarettes. And do not swap traditional smokes for e-cigarettes, because they are just as bad. Or even worse, because they often spew benzene, which is responsible for progressive ageing, and generally causes bad health. Avoid stress as much as you can, and do not work too many hours without rest. Have enough good night sleep (eight to nine hours is enough) and take occasional naps in the afternoon to regain strength and vitality. Spend as much time as you can with your friends and family, which will contribute to being happy and prevent the development of depression, which can age you a lot.
Skin Care Products
Add skin care products to your daily routine. Exfoliate the skin on your face and the body, paying special attention to critical areas such as eyes, cleavage, neck and the skin in the corner of your armpits. Consider getting advice from a Sydney-based skin rejuvenation clinic on topical creams you can introduce to your daily routine, and see if you are eligible for facial rejuvenation treatments. Consult a nutritionist and see what supplements you can add to your nutrition that will enhance the production of elastin and collagen, which contribute to your skin looking fresh and young.
Use products with SPF, especially on your face, to avoid skin damage caused by direct sunlight and UV rays. And finally, do not forget to do things that make you feel better, happy and good about yourself. Take a moment and smile, because the wrinkles you get from smiling are only charming and should not ever worry you.
