We all want to look younger, and more fresh faced, even those hitting their mid twenties wish they had the skin of their youth. However, lifestyle choices and the inevitable aging process will always catch up with us. Celebrities seem to get it all right though, with many in their 50s not looking a day over 30. How do they do it? We’ve compiled some of the best anti aging secrets from the celebs; no botox needed.
This has to be our first point, despite it being the one we all dread. If you want to look younger for longer, then you need to look after yourself. Our skin is a reflection of the things we put into our body and remembering this is key to slowing down the aging process. Smoking, excessive alcohol, junk food and other unhealthy habits are going to age your skin quicker than you think. You don’t have to take part in celebrity fad diets and healthy eating regimes though, just a few small changes can make a big difference. Ensure you’re getting enough water (2 pints a day), eating plenty of fruit and veg, and give up those nasty, skin destroying habits. You will find that the youngest looking celebrities will swear by a healthy lifestyle as a form of anti aging.
Staying safe in the sun
The sun plays two parts when it comes to our skin; first it can give off a fresh faced glow and give us that healthy dose of vitamin D, secondly it can age our skin by causing wrinkles and sun spots. Celebrities have a knack for looking after their entire body, which includes covering themselves in anti aging sun screen when they’re out and about. You don’t have to be on holiday to cover up, as the sun’s rays can break through even the thickest of cloud. Make sure you protect your skin, and you will always look youthful.
There is one thing that celebrities have that us normal people do not; a makeup artist. We’re not saying that you need to spend your monthly wage on a beauty school class to look younger, but you could use their tips and tricks. There are plenty of books available that will teach you the basics to becoming your own professional makeup artist, including the right products to buy for your skin. Learn the ropes by practising at home, in front of the mirror, before taking your newly flawless face out on the town.
Aging will not only show up on your skin; there are other areas of your body that will be affected too. One of the biggest giveaways of age is your teeth! By keeping your mouth and teeth in dentist-approved condition, you will be sure to rival even the most youthful looking celebrities. Teeth whitening has greatly reduced in cost; you can even buy kits to do this yourself at home. Remember, regular brushing, flossing and a mouthwash rinse will keep your teeth in tip top condition.
Celebrities such as Sandra Bullock and Jennifer Aniston are women who never seem to age, and now you can be just like them. Our tips are tried, tested and raved about by celebs, so why not give them a go?
