These Five Lifestyle Choices Can Help You Look Younger

Do you want to look younger and improve your overall health? These simple, yet effective life choices could be the answer to your never-ending quest for the fountain of youth.

Do you envy people who seem to age in reverse? While aging is inevitable, you can slow down the process by making a few tweaks to your lifestyle. Factors like stress, hectic schedules, an unhealthy diet, sedentary lifestyle and pollution can speed up the aging process and make you look older than you are. What is the solution? Here are some of the most effective lifestyle choices you can adopt to look younger and get a healthy, radiant glow.

Drink plenty of water

Drinking plenty of water is essential for good skin health– we can confirm that it is not a myth. You will notice more radiant and clear skin after increasing your water intake. Increased water intake also eliminates skin problems like dull-looking, dry, tight or itchy skin. It is recommended to drink eight 8-ounce glasses of water per day, but water intake is not one-size-fits-all. We suggest paying attention to what your body needs. If you find plain water boring, you can make a pitcher of infused water with a dash of flavor from fresh fruit, vegetables and herbs.

Eat 5-6 servings of vegetables

We all are guilty of binging on chips, cookies, and other unhealthy foods. But, did you know a diet high in refined carbohydrates and sugar can speed up aging? If you want to look younger, you must consume a balanced diet packed with antioxidants, proteins and healthy fats. We recommend eating 5-6 servings of vegetables every day. They are rich in quality amino acids, which are the building blocks for firm skin, as well as anti-inflammatory and antioxidant-rich nutrients, which promote healthy skin metabolism and resistance against environmental stresses. Vegetables like carrots, pumpkin and sweet potato are high in carotenoids. Since carotenoids protect the skin against the sun’s UV rays, they prevent premature skin aging and make your skin look younger and luminous.

 Reduce cortisol levels

Did you know chronic stress can lead to skin aging? High amounts of cortisol, the stress hormone, can break down collagen and elastin in the skin, causing wrinkles. Stress also causes inflammation and impair the body's ability to repair itself, thus adding years to your face. But how can you prevent it? If you want to look younger, it is imperative to manage your stress levels. Meditation is an excellent option. Just a few minutes of daily meditation brings energy into your body and provides peace and calmness. Meditation aids in the healing of your body's tissues and cells, which give your skin a youthful glow. Exercise, journaling, yoga and other mindfulness practices can also help you effectively manage your stress levels. 

Fast 

Fasting is an effective tool to combat aging. Our metabolism is the foundation of healthy and youthful skin. Fasting can transform your skin and make you look younger as it boosts your body’s metabolic activity. Fasting triggers autophagy, your body’s way of clearing out old, damaged cells and proteins in order to regenerate newer, healthier cells. Autophagy promotes cell turnover, thus giving you a healthy, radiant and youthful complexion. According to a 2019 study, caloric restriction without deficiency of essential nutrients helps slow down the aging process and promotes collagen production. 

Get regular Botox/filler 

If you prefer a smoother, line-free complexion, Botox or dermal fillers are an excellent option. Injectables are becoming increasingly popular. More than nine million such procedures were performed in 2015, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. While Botox remains the most popular treatment, dermal fillers are quickly catching up. But are you wondering how to get natural-looking and long-lasting results? When it comes to skin injections like Botox and dermal fillers, consistency is the key. If you wish to look younger, we recommend getting these injections every six to twelve months. Another important tip is to start early. Botox and dermal fillers are very effective in treating and preventing the early signs of aging.
