10 tips on how to fight aging
Everyone gets old with the time. And one would give everything to prolong the moments of youth. Those who want it very much will certainly find a way to make it come true. Moreover, it is actually possible to slow down the aging process and look (or feel) younger.
1. Hyaluronic acid
Let's start with the skin care and cosmetic ingredients that have been proven to work. First and foremost is hyaluronic acid which helps the skin retain water, and inability to retain water is a good companion of aging. Whether to inject or dab it is up to you to decide. Of course, injections work more effectively.
2. Retinol cream
Another hit among the ingredients in anti-aging cosmetics is retinol. Retinol is a vitamin A and thanks to its small molecular size it can penetrate pores and produce a number of "special effects" in the dermis, such as smoothing wrinkles, increasing skin elasticity, and stimulating collagen production.
3. More collagen
Collagen is one of the most important proteins that keep your skin supple and resilient. After the age of 25 collagen production begins to decline. Fortunately, it can be replenished through food. Foods rich in collagen are bone broth, fish, eggs, and nuts.
4. Fighting radicals
Oxidants or free radicals are the worst enemies not only of youth but also of health. Where do they come from? From the air we breathe, from the sun that we're exposed to and also from certain foods that are broken down in our body as a result of our metabolism. Free radicals can be neutralized by an antioxidant diet - a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, greens, and seafood.
5. Sun protection
So, what about the sun? Ultraviolet light ages your skin monstrously - not only does it dehydrate you but it also suppresses collagen and elastin synthesis. Use sunscreen from spring to fall - if you stick to this basic rule you can protect yourself from photoaging.
6. Get rid of unnecessary skin
What are peeling and scrubbing procedures for? Not just to get rid of all that flaky skin. By acting on our skin with a scrub, loofah or peeling we stimulate cells that become less active as we age.
7. A healthy diet
What is good about healthy diet? It is rich in "doses" of fruits, herbs and vegetables, that is, foods with a high antioxidant content. And also healthy foods don't break down in our bodies into toxic substances, like, for example, fried, floury and sweet things. You can easily recognize a person who eats right - he/she has a good look and doesn't look his/her age.
8. Contrast showers
Hardly can you find a person who hasn't heard about benefits of contrast showers. This being said, still there are people who are reluctant to introduce this procedure to their daily routine. And it is too bad for them not to do so. Contrast showers improve the quality of the skin and also strengthen the immune system, energize and combat stress.
9. Stress management
Stress doesn't just make you old. Stress ruins your health. But it's impossible to live without stress in today's environment. However, there is a way out - stress can be managed and counteracted. In other words, you need to learn how to relax. Massage, sex, meditation, psychotherapy are of great help in this sense.
10. Live and be happy
What is aging, after all? Wrinkles on your face? The main thing is to be young at heart. Not to lose the ability to rejoice and be surprised. To experience the genuine excitement of the feeling of life. Make others happy and be happy yourself.
