There are a number of ways to encourage the anti-ageing process, and perhaps the best part is that many of them can be undertaken at any age. It’s really never too late to institute lifestyle changes that help reduce the signs of ageing and even help some people reverse the signs of aging.
Exercise offers more than simply increased fitness and the development of muscle tissues. Exercising also helps ease stress, which excess distress can cause the body to show increased signs of ageing. So, encourage anti-ageing and get out and do some running or your preferred exercise to help make yourself feel and look younger.
- Protect Yourself From the Sun (Even in the Cold)
When going out in the sun, be sure to protect your skin from ultraviolet rays. Wear a sunscreen with an adequate SPF level and also be sure to apply it properly. Also, don’t forget that in the winter months, the sun’s rays are reflected off of snow. This means that moisturizers or even sunscreen can help protect against harmful radiation. Like in the warmer months, winter SPF products also require an adequate level of SPF.
- Help Your Body Renew It’s Cells
When we’re younger our bodies have no problem renewing our body’s cells every 2 or 3 weeks. However, as we get older and make more poor dietary and lifestyle choices such as all nighters during college or drinking excessive amounts of alcohol, and the environmental damage that our bodies experience.
To encourage cell renewal, experts advise to refrain from too many sweets and instead eat foods such as salmon, tuna, soybeans, tofu, avocado, and olive oil. The previously listed foods contain helpful fats and oils that help promote and regulate cell metabolism and renewal.
- Quality Skin Care
Using high quality skin care products will certainly help reduce the signs of aging. However, limits should be kept in mind because you shouldn’t have the feeling that you’re going broke after shopping for skin care products. Generally the most effective skin care treatments are not fancy or glamorous, nor are they expensive. Skin care products help, but are only complementary to good nutrition, adequate water intake, and effective use of anti-oxidants.
- Be Patient
When starting a new skin care or exercise regimen as well as when making changes to your lifestyle or eating habits, patience is key. Anything short of surgery will not have overnight results. Think of at as most things that grow in nature. By making changes you are planting the seed, and in time the effects of the change will be felt and seen, and that is the blooming result.
