Aging, despite being an inevitable aspect to human existence does not go down very well with most of us. The late thirties is the time when telltale signs of aging begin to get prominent that we can barely avoid.
This is the most difficult time, as the seemingly eternal youth all of a sudden seems to be slipping out of our hands. Even though aging is an unavoidable, we can certainly make the transition more graceful and delay the process of aging to some extent. Here let us have a look at some of the healthy ways to change our lifestyle and look younger for years.
Keep the skin clean
Out facial skin often turns out to be the most neglected of the body parts. For it has to face the ravages of external environment, such as sunlight, dust, smoke and what not, every time we walk out of our house. Therefore, the best thing to do is to wash the face whenever you get time to reduce the effect of these elements and make your skin look fresh. Use a good sunscreen lotion when going out. Not only the facial skin, but also your hands are worthy of equal attention.
Get a sound sleep
Having a good seven to eight hour sleep everyday will help you look younger. Sleep deprivation cause the skin to sag earl, thus making you look older than your actual age. Good sleep also improves our memory and learning, together with concentration and alertness.
Keep a smiling face
Maintaining a low stress level benefits your health that will directly translate into a younger and a healthier look. Studies have proved that high stress levels increase the free radicals in the body and thus, increase the risks of obesity, heart attack, Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes, depression, gastrointestinal problems and so on.
Eat green and live green
High levels of proteins, carbohydrates and fats are one of the major factors for early aging. They also cause obesity at early age among people. Therefore, it is imperative, keeping in view our more sedentary lifestyle, for us to put ourselves on vitamin rich green diet. Fruits and vegetables also contain antioxidants that help fight sever diseases like cancer.
Lessen Sodium intake
High level of sodium in the body is dangerous for our health as well as looks. Sodium accumulation in the body leads to water retention that the body needs to flush out sodium. Apart from making a person look fluffy, sodium also leads to more severe health problems like cardiovascular diseases. So minimize the salt intake as much as you can and avoid the foods rich in saturated fats and salt.
Regular exercise is possibly the best way to get your body back in shape and look young. Exercising is a holistic act that not only helps cut down the flab on the body and reduce health risks, but also helps rejuvenate the skin for a healthier and younger look.
As they say, “a stitch in time saves nine,” you must start early in your life to take measures against aging. All the measures are mostly preventive and not curative. So all the remedies suggested above will benefit your body only if you start then early in your life. When you are in your twenties is the appropriate time to lead a healthy lifestyle and slow down the process of aging, thus making your skin more healthy and supple.
If you follow a healthy lifestyle, you can definitely avoid the aging blues. In fact, getting young and healthy skin is only one aspect of adopting a healthy life style. The overall wellbeing of a person depends on keeping a more regimented routine.
