For most of us, aging is that naturally-occurring inconvenience (not counting Jennifer Lopez or Pharell Williams) that we have to put up with and do our best not to look horrible. But what’s interesting is, we don’t all show the same signs of aging, and we’re not talking genetics here.
Smoking, dehydration, and poor nutrition are some of the things that cause premature aging, and when you take these three factors and a lack of proper skin care, it’s all downhill from there. But there’s still some hope if you can turn things around quickly and adopt a healthy lifestyle that involves healthy food and taking good care of your skin. Need some help putting together a set of lifestyle changes to slow down aging and look amazing? We have the best tips from industry experts.
Lighten Up Your Beauty Look
If you are using the same makeup in your 30s that you used in your late teens, then it might not be working. This is because our skin goes through changes as we age, and to maintain the same glow you will have to go lighter with things like sparkle, glitter, and matte finishes. The good thing with glitter and sparkle is that it settles inside those fine lines, making them more attractive and noticeable.
Along with Sunscreen, Use Moisturizer Every Day
Along with sunscreen, apply a moisturizer once or twice a day, as needed. So what makes moisturizer important in skin care? According to the AAD, your skin needs water to retain a youthful appearance, and moisturizer is essential because it traps water in the skin, reducing lines and wrinkles.
Drink More Water
Drinking water is essential in maintaining perfect health. Not only does it flush out toxins from the body, but water also improves things like digestion, physical and mental performance, metabolism, energy levels, and complexion. When you drink enough water, the skin gets hydrated and looks younger, brighter, and healthier. Wrinkles are less visible, and the skin sags less. We have a few tips you can use to make sure you get the recommended eight glasses:
Get More Sleep
We need 7-8 hours of quality, uninterrupted sleep every night to stay healthy. It’s okay if you get home late every once in a while but going for weeks without enough sleep can be devastating in terms of your health. Stress levels skyrocket, and the risk of hypertension and diabetes is increased dramatically. Rest is also important in weight management, as a lack of sleep is linked to poor metabolic function, fat storage, and bad eating habits. Aside from all that, if you don’t sleep well, you’re going to have low energy, poor concentration, and you’re going to look and feel tired all the time.
