As any woman knows, maintaining beauty is about a lot more than makeup and the clothes you wear. It’s hard work to maintain a certain appearance whether it is physical fitness or dieting, but there is one thing nobody can control: aging. Many of the most beautiful women in the world slowly start to lose their luster after age takes its toll, but this doesn’t have to be a rapid and troublesome trend.
Even though everyone has to come to terms with the aging process, it’s possible to maintain certain health practices that can prevent the signs of aging for a longer period. It might be inevitable, but it doesn’t have to happen right away! Try these 4 different health practices and you’ll stay young for longer.
- Reduce inflammation – reducing inflammation helps your body to be less stressed, which reduces a chemical called cortisol. Often people who are really stressed exhibit a lot of cortisol in their body, which is said to increase the signs of aging. One of the best ways to reduce inflammation is to cut out certain foods from your diet (such as breads, pasta etc). There are also supplements to help you reduce inflammation, such as omega-3 fish oil. The DHA and EPA in fish oil provide many benefits that can help you to reduce inflammation.
- Stop eating so often – while it might be difficult to believe, one of the greatest practices to keep you young and vibrant is actually fasting (not eating) for a certain part of every day. Eating only during an 8 hour window every day will give your body 16 hours to detoxify and help remove free radicals that show up as signs of aging.
- Natural face creams – there are plenty of natural creams, such as coconut oil, shea butter, and a host of others, which can help you to remove signs of aging from your skin. This is a topical solution and even though it is popular, don’t make the mistake of thinking you have a magic pill of some sort. The reality is, the face ointments and creams can help but they will not solve all of your aging problems.
- Get sunlight daily – one of the most important nutrients that most people are deficient in is called Vitamin D. It is known as the sunlight vitamin because the human body synthesizes through access to the sun. Even though many claim that sun is bad for your skin and aging, if you get it in the right quantity with plenty of skin protection, you’ll actually be preventing signs of aging.
Some of these tips might seem counterintuitive at first, but they can all help you to maintain a healthy looking complexion long into your older years. While aging is something that everyone has to go through, you can still look beautiful without focusing all your time on makeup and clothing.
