We’ve put together some ways to stay looking younger for longer…
Whether you’re in your 30s or your 50s, the chances are that you’re always looking for new ways to stay looking young.
You might have tried every diet under the sun, 100s of “miracle” creams and even considered cosmetic surgery – but the good news is that there’s an easier solution.
Cut out stress
Whether it’s the pressure of work, those seemingly endless traffic jams or money worries, it’s hard to avoid stress nowadays.
But according to research from the Benson-Henry Institute for Mind-Body Medicine in Boston, stress causes physical changes in your body that accelerate signs of ageing, like wrinkles.
When we’re stressed, adrenaline and cortisol cause our blood pressure to rise, which can take its toll on our emotional and physical health.
Although some stress is good for you, it’s bad for your body to let it build up, so practice mindfulness or meditation.
Spend ten minutes in your quiet place on a morning and focus on your breathing.
Over time, you’ll learn to relax and both your mind and body will be grateful.
Do some yoga
On the subject of mindfulness, when did you last give yoga a try?
There are a whole host of benefits, including increased energy levels, better posture, greater flexibility, improved mood, less stress and, the biggie: anti-ageing benefits.
Indeed, yogic breathing can help oxygenate your cells, ridding them of built-up of toxins, allowing you to prevent illnesses and increase the radiance of your skin.
Unlike working out at the gym or going for a run, yoga is designed to work the inside of your body, rejuvenating your digestive, reproductive, and immune systems and helping you to look (and feel) younger and more connected with your body.
Eat more fat
We’re not suggesting that you head to your local diner and order a double cheeseburger with all of the trimmings, but adding more healthy fats to your diet can be a good thing.
Omega-3 fatty acids (which are found in nuts like walnuts, seeds, and salmon) can help to stabilise your mood and prevent the visible signs of ageing by reducing inflammation in your body.
Dieticians recommend adding two grams of omega-3 fatty acids to your diet every day, so cook fish such as mackerel, salmon and herring, or take fish-oil supplements if you’d prefer.
If you want to slow down the signs of ageing and stay looking younger for longer, Oralift could be for you.
The Oralift device is designed to reduce and delay the signs of facial ageing, sitting over your lower teeth, similar to a mouthguard.
Users wear their Oralift device for just two hours every third day, and there’s no exercise programme involved – the idea behind it is that your facial muscles will be activated simply by having it in your mouth.
Around the world, Oralift has gained recognition from cosmetic surgeons as being one of the most impressive products to reduce and delay the signs of facial ageing, and wearers report a host of benefits.
Not only have Oralift users reported reduced lines around their mouth and eyes, but reduced bags around their eyes, increased fullness of the lips and more prominent cheekbones
And that’s not all – this facial rejuvenation device has been reported to tighten and strengthen facial muscles, increase the blood flow to the skin to increase its radiance, and strengthen the jawline and neck.
Oralift users have even reported improved hair quality and repaired pores.
The brainchild of Dr. Nick Mohindra, a London dentist with a special interest in treating patients suffering from facial pain due to temporomandibular dysfunction (TMD), Oralift is fast-becoming the first choice for non-surgical facial rejuvenation, having been featured on BBC Radio 1, The Daily Mail, and the British Dental Journal.
Sip green tea
The taste might not be for everyone, but when you discover the benefits of green tea, you might just stomach a cup or two.
The world’s healthiest beverage is loaded with antioxidants and nutrients that can have a powerful effect on your body…
- Hydration: Green tea hydrates your skin, slowing down the ageing processing and helping to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. And the more you drink, the bigger the benefits will be – swap out your usual tea or coffee for a green tea, instead.
- Inflammation: Green tea is rich in polyphenols, which reduce inflammation and can help to fight against diseases such as cancer. Green tea is also proven to improve the condition of common inflammatory skin conditions such as eczema and rosacea.
- Fat burning: If you’re trying to lose some weight, then have a green tea or two: it has been shown to increase fat burning and boost your metabolism, according to trials.
- Breast cancer: Several studies have found that women who drink green tea have a 20-30% lower risk of developing breast cancer than those who do not.
- Your brain: Green tea is not only a short-term stimulant, but it can protect your brain in old age. Several studies have found that the catechin compounds in green tea can potentially lower the risk of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s in later life.
