Guest Post: Anti Ageing Tips

November 14, 2011

Today more than ever women are trying to feel healthier and look younger.


Use SPF– While it’s a good idea to get your daily dose of Vitamin D, however it’s bad for your skin if you get too much of it. An abundance of exposure to sunlight can cause your skin to look leathery and older than it is in reality. Whether you’re planning on spending a lot of time outdoors or just a little bit, it’s always a good idea to make sure to apply SPF to protect your skin.


Moisturize– After applying SPF be sure to apply a daily moisturizer that is made for your skin type. You can apply one that is lighter during the summer months so that your skin won’t feel suffocated and drip with perspiration. During the winter use a thicker, richer cream so that you get extra protection from free radicals and the wind in the air.


Exfoliate– Erase time in minutes simply by removing the dead skin cells that are sitting on top of your skin. These cells make your skin look dull and when they are removed your skin will have a beautiful youthful looking glow.


A salad a day keeps indigestion away.


Eat Right– Antioxidants are the best weapons you have at your disposal so be sure to eat plenty of them every day. You can find them in fresh fruits, leafy greens, fish and lean meats. You’ll find that antioxidants not only keep you looking young but give you healthier looking skin, shinier hair and brighter eyes.


Yoga helps.


Exercise– When you exercise you sweat out the toxins that are swimming around in your body causing you to become sluggish and look older. Working out is also a great way to reduce stress which is another way to fight wrinkles and the ageing process so be sure to head to the gym three times a week to get results. Hey, as an added bonus you may eventually fit back into your favorite old jeans again.


Smoking kills, eventually.


Stop Smoking– The chemicals found in cigarettes are known to decrease the blood flow to your skin causing it to lose out on proper nourishment and become dry and dull looking. In the long run smoking is also known to cause the appearance of fine lines and deep wrinkles.


Of course there are always procedures such as Botox that you can get to help you look younger, but this is a good place to start.
