Our Top Tips on How To FEEL YOUNGER
We all want to stay young looking as long as possible but the secret means planning now and not waiting for the aging process to take its toll before you decide to do something about it.
The secret lies in our daily habits and ensuring that these are going in the right direction. We should all be taking good care of ourselves to keep us looking younger while achieving all round wellbeing. When you feel good, it will show in your skin, your attitude and in your ability to feel and act as if you are younger.
We share some top tips to achieve that younger look...
Top Tip No. 1
Eating a healthy balanced diet by including those nutrient-dense foods that repair your body from the inside out. A diet that is high in refined carbohydrates, sugar and salt can reduce skin elasticity and cause inflammation in the body but if you incorporate foods that are rich in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties, you will find that these will help your body’s repair process, rejuvenate your skin and lead to a more youthful appearance.
Top Tip No. 2
Learning to let go of negative emotions and stress. If you don't learn to let go, your stomach will repeatedly feel uncomfortable and can lead to gastrointestinal symptoms such as acid reflux, ulcers, diarrhoea and irritable bowel syndrome. At the same time, constant emotional stress can speed up cellular aging meaning your body is less able to get rid of any worn out cells and toxins.
Tip Tip No. 3
Topping up with supplements. While eating healthy is a good start to ensure that your body functions optimally, often our bodies don't absorb as many nutrients as we should. Supplements like collagen granules reduce the signs of aging, improve the immune system, come with high antioxidant properties - and promote gut and joint health. There are plenty of other supplements to consider too, including vitamin D3,vitamin K2, vitamin C, omega-3, astaxanthin and more.
Top Tip No. 4
Ensuring plenty of good quality sleep. Our modern world often means we find ourselves chasing deadlines which can lead to high levels of stress that affect the quality of our sleep, impacting on our physical health and emotional well-being. Sleep is important too to help our bodies recharge, to repair cells, to fight off disease while boosting our overall health. It is vital to create the right sleeping environment minus any distractions to enable us to get at least six to eight hours sleep every night.
Top Tip No. 5
Including plenty of regular exercise in our beauty and anti-aging routine. We all know the importance of this. Suggestions of course include walking, running, swimming, gardening and more. But have you thought about adding endurance and high-intensity interval training to your routine. These exercises keep your heart rate up, keeping your cells younger for longer while helping with anti-aging.
Top Tip No. 6
Cutting out or cutting down on alcohol and smoking. If you are a cigarette smoker the smoke that is emitted contains (a) carbon monoxide which displaces the oxygen in your skin and (b) nicotine which reduces blood flow, leaving skin dry and discolored. If you drink alcohol, dehydration is the issue with alcohol affecting any mucus membrane including the skin. Alcohol inflames the tissue, creating the redness which over a long period of time can become a prominent feature.
Top Tip No. 7
Ensuring we care for our skin to reduce wrinkles and fine lines. Our own H-Glow Formula will give you that glowing skin you seek while naturally smoothing and reducing any wrinkles around the lips and the eyes, on the neck and anywhere else on your skin. This is a natural formula that is applied to the freshly cleaned face and neck. And if you have any fine lines, massage some additional drops into those lines themselves to rejuvenate, balance and repair the skin while encouraging cell regeneration. Smooth out affected areas with H-Glow Formula to give a more youthful and fresh appearance.
