We all know that health and beauty go hand in hand. So things that you do for a healthy lifestyle will also contribute to a more youthful appearance. We know that saying, “work from the inside first, then add some outside approaches to your list”.
There’s more to ageing gracefully than just a bunch of expensive skincare products & procedures. So, let’s focus on those healthy habits in our daily life & see how rapid ageing takes a back seat!
Relax Your Forehead & Soften Your Eyes
Don’t raise your eyebrows unnecessarily. When you make a facial expression, you contract the underlying muscles, and if you repeatedly contract the same muscles for many years, these lines become permanent. Be conscious of any unnecessary squinting of the facial skin, especially the eye region. Invest in a good pair of sunglasses to avoid UV rays from the sun.
Sit & Stand Erect
Stop leaning over one side & slouching. Lousy posture can not only give you an old person-like appearance but also give you old-age troubles way sooner than you’d expect them. It provides you rounded shoulders, potbelly, bent knees when standing or walking, head that either leans forward or backward, back pain, body aches & overall a decreased quality of life.
Avoid Holding Your Phone Down
Keep your phone parallel to your face. Bending your neck can cause wrinkles over your neck, sometimes referred to as “Tech neck’.
Smile More, Be Kind & Grateful
Wake up, go to the mirror & give yourself a big smile every day. A memory of that beautiful start will somewhere stick with you throughout the day, spark happiness within you & may even help your mood. Apart from this, give genuine compliments to friendly strangers or even family members.
Eat Good Fats & Workout
Include good fats into your diet like ghee, walnuts, flax seeds, olive oil. Include good quality protein. Splash some cool water over your face, eyes & practice basic stretches every day after waking up in the morning.
Beauty Sleep Is a Must
Skin naturally repairs itself between the hours of 11 p.m. – 4 a.m. All-day, the skin works hard to protect itself from constant attack, but while we’re sleeping, skin switches into ‘recovery mode,’ a time of intense repair and regeneration.
