Here are some antiaging and beauty hacks to look younger and more beautiful, while combatting the signs of aging.
1. Quit using a straw.
When you consistently purse your lips to sip through a straw, you’re causing wrinkles to form around your mouth. Simply drink straight from a cup or bottle to fend off those unsightly lines.
2. Stop smoking.
This is the ultimate shortcut when it comes to better skin and slower aging. Smoking causes wrinkles around the lips and mouth, as well as crow’s feet from squinting to avoid getting smoke in your eyes. It also clogs pores and slows down cellular repair. Let’s not forget those old-looking, yellow teeth is causes.
3. Get tinted windows.
Research shows that commuters develop the signs of aging more quickly on the left side of their face. Our driver’s side gets much more exposure to the sun, even when the window is closed. Tint the windows of your car to help prevent this kind of damage
4. Use a retinol product.
Retinol is critical for fighting the signs of aging, including hyperpigmentation, age spots, wrinkles and fine lines. It exfoliates dead skin cells to reveal fresher looking skin and impart a healthy glow. Try my Retinol Cream Conditioner for gentle but effective results.
5. Eat an antioxidant-rich diet.
Antioxidants help you fight the signs of aging and boost your overall health. They fight the inflammation that causes skin damage, pain and the development of chronic illnesses and diseases. Some excellent sources include grapes, dark green vegetables, artichokes, kidney beans, pecans, sweet potatoes, squash, apples, prunes, black plums, green tea and dark chocolate. Berries are also ideal sources—the darker the color, the higher the antioxidant content. Try everything from cranberries, gojiberries and strawberries to blackberries, blueberries and raspberries.
