No one wants to age (forget gracefully) in today’s world. While maintaining skin in its perfect health can be a difficult task, but it is not impossible.
You must have seen many celebrities in those glossy magazines and wondered why don’t they ever age? Yet you know deep inside that they spend countless bucks on cosmetic procedures or expensive creams. If you want a youthful skin without shelling out big bucks, here are the secret tips to get a glowing complexion and prevent your skin from aging –
- Get that Beauty Sleep
If you are not getting enough sleep (7 to 8 hours) then you are adding years to your skin unintentionally. We are not mincing any words here, but taking at least 8 hours of beauty sleep is the key to looking young and glowing.
- Stay hydrated
If your skin is insufficiently hydrated, you will end up having wrinkles. So make it a habit to drinking 8 to 9 glasses of water every day.
- Avoid direct exposure to the sun
Sun is the biggest culprit when it comes to skin aeging. It’s harmful UV rays accelerate the skin aeging process and the result is – aged patchy skin. So make sure that you never step out of your house without a good sunscreen with at least SPF-15.
- Eat healthy
A good diet shows on your skin. If you take enough antioxidants from fresh fruits and vegetables, then your skin will remain healthy just like your body. The antioxidants will remove any free radicals that can cause damage to your skin and give your skin a healthy glow.
- Use a good moisturizer
A well-hydrated skin will fade away fine lines and creases on your skin. So always invest in a good moisturizer to stay away from aging early.
- Keep stress at bay
Nothing can make our skin look dull and many years older than stress. Stress also releases a hormone called cortisol that will decrease the muscular tissue beneath the skin and make it look saggy.
- Use face yoga
It is always wise to do little face yoga or face exercises. They will give your skin cells a boost and instantly uplift your skin making it look healthy and young.
- Drink milk
Milk is great at promoting moisture in your skin and it also prevents dryness. So you can drink some milk before bedtime to wake up with a healthy-looking skin. It also tears up early signs of aeging.
- Take calcium
Make sure that you take enough calcium in your diet or alternatively you can take calcium supplements. They provide anti-aeging benefits and rejuvenate the skin from within.
- Have green tea
Green tea aids in skin protection with its anti-oxidant properties and delays skin aeging.
