Everyone wants to look their best, and most people also want to look younger. Unfortunately, we can’t stop time, but there are things you can do to prevent premature aging. If you are looking for ways to keep yourself looking as young as possible Beauty ‘N Fashion can help. We have identified 8 of the most common ways people age their appearance and we want to share these tips and tricks with you.
Not Enough Exercise
If your days are long and your work is tiring, exercise may be the last thing on your mind. Sitting idle will cause weight gain and premature aging. Make a point of walking at least 30 minutes every day to increase your lifespan and look more youthful.
Too Much Stress
Stress has negative effects on the body like it can cause gray hair, wrinkles, heart disease and more. Men who suffer from chronic anxiety are more likely to start losing hair pigment 10 years earlier. Your skin also suffers when you are stressed; think about how often you break out when you are upset!
Lack of Sleep
Poor sleep habits will age men and women equally. While women focus on beauty sleep, men stick to the motto of work hard all day, then play hard all night. Habitual late-night marathons will leave you with bags under your eyes and swollen lids. Not only will you look less attractive, but you will also look older.
Stressing Your Skin
Sleeping with your face flush against your pillow, rubbing tired eyes, and forgetting to wash your face before bed can quickly age your skin. The area around your eyes is the thinnest on your face, so pulling it or leaving it without moisture can quickly cause wrinkles.
Having sugar on occasion is okay, but excessive sugar will ruin the elasticity of your skin and cause you to develop wrinkles. Too much sugar also leads to tooth decay and other health concerns. Stick to calcium-rich foods and dry fruit instead.
Smoking has a myriad of negative side effects which include cancer, heart disease, dementia, and weathered skin. In this day and age, there is really no excuse to smoke, so you should quit this body aging habit before it’s too late.
Watch the Alcohol
Red wine is good for your health in the proper amounts it contains resveratrol, which has antioxidant properties, but that doesn’t mean you can drink to excess. Alcohol dependency causes cirrhosis of the liver and will encourage the formation of fine lines.
Being slightly overweight won’t have a dramatic effect on aging, but staying overweight or going up and down with your weight will age your body and you’re exterior. Make a point of eating healthy and working out to look your best at every age.
Stay young is the goal of most and when you treat your body as a temple, it will reward you. Make a point of reducing stress, maintaining healthy sleep habits, and eating a well-balanced diet. Add in a quality skincare routine, and start getting proper rest and notice years off of your appearance.
