In this day and age, it’s safe to say that we’re all very much exposed to ageing. There definitely seems to be a lot of stress in the air, and compared to years before, we’re not always managing it that well. And, whether you realize it or not, stress is a huge catalyst for ageing. But it’s not the only factor. Lifestyle choices, caffeine, and sun exposure also count here. And when that happens it’s often very difficult to reverse the signs of aging. So, if you’re someone that wants to be able to look after themselves and enjoy youthful skin, and feeling youthful in general, it’s so important for you to take action. And now.
While reversing ageing is hard, it’s not impossible. Whether you’re experiencing fine lines and wrinkles, suffering from adult acne, or you just feel more stressed out in yourself, you may find that you really don’t feel your best. But choosing to work on that can help. There are ways that you can look and feel younger if you so wish – you just have to know what they are, then apply them to your life. And the good news is, this can work from all angles, not just skincare. So, let’s take a look.
To start with, you’re going to want to make sure that you’re getting a good quality of sleep – and enough of it. Around seven to eight hours a night is ideal. When you sleep, your body heals and repairs. And so, you’ll want to ensure that you’re actually preparing your body for sleep in the evenings, and winding down without screens, as this can make all the difference.
The next thing that your skin needs (and your body, internally too) is hydration. Nothing beats drinking more water. There are so many different skin benefits that you get from drinking even just one more litre of water each day. So, right now, if you’re not already drinking 2 litres, then that’s what you need to be doing. You’ll see a noticeable difference in not only your skin, but your energy levels too, within weeks if not days.
And then, you’re going to want to start thinking about the topical treatment of your skin. When you start looking after it from the inside, you can then make that stronger by targeting it from the outside too. But you have to pick products that are going to work best with your own skin. When you’re looking for an anti wrinkle cream or serum, it’s important to consider your needs. And less is often more, you don’t have to overload your face with products.
What you eat matters. It can help or hinder the ageing process – and not just with your skin. If you eat nourishing fruits and vegetables, lean meats, oily fish, and whole grains, your body will benefit. Not only will you slow down the ageing process externally, but internally too.
Stress is a killer. We all know that. But it’s also a huge toxin too. So, when you’re stressed, it can often show in your skin. Therefore, the best thing that you can do for your mind, body, and the ageing process, is to take a break. If you can slow down a little and relax more, it will be a huge benefit to you.
One thing that you probably do know, but maybe try to just ignore, is that toxins are not good for your skin. Yes, stress is a toxin, but it’s not the only one. And all kinds of toxins can manifest in your skin. Your skin expels them, so things like caffeine or sugar or alcohol can mean that your skin isn’t always looking its best. Caffeine can have its benefits, but there’s a fine line. So, if you really want to tackle ageing, cutting down on the toxins (or out altogether) is essential.
Finally, something that you will find definitely helps you, is to invest in different treatments. It’s safe to say that you may not spend a lot of your time getting facials or different skincare treatments, but this could really save your skin. Once you’ve covered off the basics, then you need to really kickstart the anti-ageing process. And the right treatments can help you. Finding a facialist near to you, and trying out different facials like chemical peels or light therapy, could help you to really reduce the ageing process.
