Who wants to age? Not us! We can’t literally stop time, but we’re completely okay with looking 25 for the rest of our lives. We’ve seen the magazines, the glossy photoshopped images, and we want that in real life.
Perfection isn’t possible, but anti-aging is. You can have a radiant and glowing complexion that makes you not just look younger but feel younger, with our nine anti-aging tips.
- Get Sleep
We’re not mincing words here. You need sleep. It’s the most important aspect of your daily beauty routine. Getting 8-9 hours of sleep each night can help you look years younger. Believe us. No one looks gorgeous with bags under their eyes.
- Drink Tea
Staying hydrated is key to looking and feeling young, and tea can be an important part of hydration. Tea also provides other benefits such as antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. In particular, we love our anti-aging Anti-C Tea, which helps with cellulite, skin problems, and internal toxins. Or our Skin Herbs Tea, which gives you the glowing skin you’ve always dreamed about.
- Wash, Tone & Moisturize
Your skin is where your age is most evident. To keep wrinkles and fine lines at bay follow these three steps:
- Wash your face with a gentle soap
- Always use a toner
- Don’t forget to moisturize.
- Eat a Balanced Diet
There’s no doubt that you are what you eat. Eating an unhealthy diet is guaranteed to make you age more quickly and keep you looking and feeling far too old. By changing what you eat, you can fight the negative affects of aging. Follow an Eating Plan for a great holistic diet that gives your body the nutrients and vitamins it needs.
Exercise should be a no-brainer. We all know the benefits of exercise. It’s absolutely vital for an anti-aging routine. People that have sedentary lifestyles tend to age way faster than active people. In fact, research has shown that just 30 minutes of exercise a day can go a long way toward halting the aging process.
- Get Outside
We spend far too much time inside in front of our computers or with our faces glued to the TV. The truth is that the outside world comes with enumerable benefits. Getting outside and into the sun not only livens up your mood, but the fresh oxygen in your lungs will help you stay younger for longer. Just don’t forget to wear SPF 30 sunscreen every time you go out in the sun.
- Do a Liver Cleanse
Sometimes you need to take a step back and reset your body. You body is filled with stress and inevitable toxic build up that can be tiring and aging. When we cleanse, we clean out the excess stress so our body can thrive. Try our 14-day Liver Cleanse for an anti-aging boost you’ll love.
- Avoid Funny Faces
We get it. Duck lips are popular. Well, if you want to stay looking young, you have to stop with the funny faces. Every time you purse your lips, frown your brow, or squint your eyes you’re creating lines and wrinkles that you’ll always have to deal with. Try to keep your face smooth and even to avoid early signs of age.
Aging starts from within. Meditation has proven to be one of the best anti-aging techniques out there. So, stop, and meditate often. Take a few moments, each day, to reflect on your life and to absorb peace and happiness.
