Time flies when you’re busy.
It really does and before you know it, your skin starts showing the first signs of aging.
Not only can this be can be difficult to accept but even more difficult to handle.
For women who would like to make their skin look firm and young again, but still wouldn’t like to undergo any harsh cosmetic procedures, there are ways to get great results.
If you are looking for natural ways to beat fine lines and wrinkles, those first signs of aging, here are the most useful natural ways to do just that:
Make your skin plumper
When you notice that your skin has lost some of its volume, try plumping it up with natural masks.
Here’s how to easily make a natural facial mask in your kitchen:
- blend a single egg with two tablespoons each of glycerin and rose water
- when you get a smooth mixture, apply it to your face and neck
- leave on for about 15 minutes
- rinse off with lukewarm water
Another useful way to plump your skin is to practice facial yoga – it will tighten your facial muscles and improve your skin’s elasticity.
It’s quite simple and easy to do at home or when you’re on your lunch break at work: smile and gently push the tips of your fingers into the groove between your lips and nose.
You can do something similar for you cheeks as well: slowly lift your cheek muscles and gently press the area for resistance.
Exfoliate and moisturize
You should cleanse your skin every day when you get home from work, but you should exfoliate only once a week because exfoliating is a bit harsher than cleansing.
After you exfoliate, apply moisturizer that will help your skin retain moisture which will, in turn, act as a temporary filler for wrinkles.
Your entire complexion will look much smoother, and you will feel more youthful as well.
Here’s how to make your own moisturizer:
- a tablespoon of honey
- 3 tablespoons of fresh cream
- a 1/4 of an avocado
Put all the ingredients into a blender and make a smooth cream which you should apply to your face and leave on for an hour.
Dazzle them with your smile
A nice smile that shows off a perfect set of pearly whites will be able to change your entire face and give your more confidence.
On the other hand, in order to get a set of perfect teeth, you need to see a dentist and change your habits.
My endodontist in Sydney advised me to change my diet: stop drinking coffee and eating toffees, because they are bad for my teeth.
Not only is healthy diet key for overall health, but it will also be able to help you keep your teeth strong and white, therefore helping you get a brighter smile, and a bright smile will make you look ten years younger.
Make a habit of wearing sunscreen
Wearing sunscreen should be considered a ‘rule’ when trying to keep your skin healthy.
This is why you should try to make a habit of applying sunscreen before you leave your house in the morning.
Wash you face with cold water, and apply moisturizer with SPF before you leave.
If you wear makeup (namely foundation), choose products that also contain SPF.
Sun is good for our overall health, but it also leaves our skin dry and flaky, so it’s important to protect it with sunscreen.
Middle and old age luckily isn’t what is used to be – people today are more active and positive than older generations were before.
Nowadays, you have grandparents going on cruises, hiking, and working out, and all this just goes to show how a much healthier approach to getting older can improve our lives.
Allow yourself to express your youthful spirit, and let nature help you look as young as you feel.
