NATURAL BEAUTY TIPS TO LOOKING YOUNGER
Beauty Tips for Looking Younger
Here are some timeless secrets to younger looking skin--no matter what your age.
Humans have been obsessed with beauty since the beginning of time.
The hard and sad truth is that we begin the aging process as soon as we pop out of the womb.
Each and every day of our lives our bodies slough off and regenerate new cells. The speed at which that process takes place when we are children is vastly different as we get older.
I'm sure that you are bombarded daily with commercial messages and beauty tips that attempt to lure you into believing that the most recent miracle drug or face cream is just what you need to fight off the ravages of Mother Nature.
However, we are living longer as a whole and singularly, that can be a curse or a blessing, depending on your perspective.
The best route to natural beauty and healthy skin is to take care of what you have.
Sounds simple, doesn’t it?
The truth is that your skin takes a beating from the environment every single day so here are some of our favorite beauty tips for keeping your skin fresh and healthy:
1: Stay hydrated and drink plenty of water everyday!
That does not include soda, caffeine or any other type of liquid, even if it is low cal.
Soda (even diet soda) and carbonated drinks have a high concentration of sodium.
Sodium retains fluid so you need additional fluid to hydrate and flush your body free of toxins.
Make sure you are drinking at least 8 glasses a day! Add lemon juice to spruce up the flavor.
2: Protect your skin from harmful ultra violet (UV) rays.
We all love the sun. We love being in it and we love having a beautiful sun-kissed tan.
The truth is that you can poison yourself with too much sunshine.
UV rays cause skin cancer and if that isn’t bad enough it causes your skin to age faster than it should, contributing to unsightly wrinkles.
If you must play in the sun, make certain you are using an adequate sunscreen, especially for your face and never leave home without it!
3: Keep your skin clean.
Use a soft warm cloth. Skin does not require scrubbing.
You will ALWAYS do more harm than good if you continue to scrub and tug at your skin.
4: The best cure for wrinkles is never to acquire them!
If you are like most of us, you didn’t listen to your Mom when she tried to tell you to stay in the shade, stand up straight and stop squinting!
5: Eat healthy.
Knowing how and what to eat can make a huge difference in how you feel.
Improper eating habits can cause depression, weight gain, illness and an overall lethargy.
Weight gain causes your skin to stretch.
As you get older, it loses it's elasticity and you're left with sagging skin so the best solution is to maintain a proper weight.
A rule of thumb for eating habits---Don't ever eat more calories than you consume.
Don't go one single day without doing something extra and physical for at least 30 minutes per day.
This can be three ten minute walks or 30 minutes of vigorous aerobics, or 12 minutes of weight lifting and 18 minutes of walking.
6: Don't worry, be happy.
A happy outlook appears to trigger the release of endorphins.
Endorphins relax the cardiovascular system and cytokines which alert the immune system to pay attention in detecting abnormalities like cancer cells.
Listen carefully to yourself.
If you have put yourself down since childhood---negative subliminal messages can take their toll by turning you into a pessimist.
Spend one week writing down the phrases you use in your “self talk.”
Chances are you will find that you repeat a dozen or so phrases over and over again that reinforce that negative image.
If you know about them, you can change them.
Outer beauty and inner joy always go hand in hand.
QUICK TIPS for INCREASING JOY?
Make a list of at least 10-20 good things that happen to you every day.
Laugh a lot. You’ll heal your body and your mind.
Discover a new challenge each month.
Try meditating for just five to 10 minutes each day.
7: Sex After 50 – Ha!
The importance of physical intimacy actually depends on the couple.
An alarming number of men used to give up on sex after 60 and many women felt that their sex life ended with menopause. Thankfully, this is no longer the case.
Sex during middle age can actually become better and more satisfying than ever before.
Maturity gives a couple more experience in lovemaking.
The children are usually grown and left home and the pressures of building a career and day to day life are usually less stressful than in younger years.
So Is Beauty Really Skin Deep?
The answer is yes and no. It’s a paradox, isn’t it?
True beauty begins from the inside out.
Just remember that getting older doesn't have to mean getting old.
