Aging is inevitable and fountain of youth is yet to be discovered. This means you have to take care of yourself in the early years to look and feel better later. Things you do in your younger years are literally shaping your old age days. If you want to have a healthy mind, skin, and body when as you age you have to take some measures today and nip some evils in the bud.
Here are a few things that if done every day can catalyze the aging process.
NOT PUTTING SUNSCREEN
Whether you’re staying in, spending the day out or going to the beach, WEAR SUNSCREEN EVERYDAY and use it after the moisturizer.
USING COTTON PILLOWS
You have this one thing in touch with your skin for 6-8 hours and if your pillowcase is made of anything else than silk BE WARNED. Cotton and other fabrics do not let your skin move as easily and pave the way to skin with wrinkles and lines.
TRYING TO BE PERFECT
This is perhaps the most fatal of feelings, and we often end on up on the fourth stage which is called “desperation” in order to paint the perfect little picture of our lives. Negative thoughts and stress hormones only speed up the aging process.
Sipping from straws is lipstick friendly but not very handy when it comes to aging. This one action adds lines around your lips and makes you look older.
Going fat-free is not recommended by health experts. Healthy fats such as omega-e keep skin smooth and supple plus these also hinder premature aging of skin. Add healthy fats to your daily diet. You can obtain these from fish and nuts.
Smoking be it once a week or less is injurious to health. More than 300 chemicals in a cigarette are all deleterious to your health making you older on inside and outside.
DITCHING YOUR FRIENDS
A close-knit circle of friends is essential to your well being. They not only pick you up and lift your spirits but a good support circle keeps you sane. Science says that it can even delay the effects of aging by reducing stress and giving a healthy dose of happy hormones. So stop making excuses and show up on every trip with your friends no matter how hard it seems.
IGNORING YOUR MENTAL HEALTH
Sleeping over depression and mental health issues day in and day out would not do any good to you today or tomorrow. Effect of depression sucks all the healthy glow from your face, welcome diseases like Hypertension and diabetes and push you to the doomed path of an old-age full of medicines and suffering.
POOR SKIN CARE
If you apply sunscreen only occasionally and moisturize scarcely you need to wake up. Build a good skincare routine, find out products that suit your skin and stop overusing makeup. If you have skin issues see a dermatologist and stay true to your skin or be ready for a dry cracked uneven toned skin earlier than expected.
