When you reach a certain age, and it doesn’t even matter if you look like Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise, Selena Gomez or even Mariah Carey you will get older and age will start to show, physically and mentally.
This will be the time when you start looking for natural anti aging secrets, to help you slow down aging IF possible.
And it is perfectly normal, if you could look younger by slowing down the way your body grows or your skin in particular, I don’t see why you or anyone else shouldn’t.
I am always left confused whenever I see someone that looks like they are in their mid 20s or 30s, while people tell me they are in fact 40+. Since then, I started looking into it and learn about the natural ways we can achieve to have a look that defies age.
If we look at Jennifer Anniston for example, we know the famous TV series “friends” has ended decades ago, but yet there she is, looking like the Rachel Green we first saw on TV…how crazy is that?
This is not even a myth, there are millions of people who look way younger than they are supposed to look, and you can be one of those people if you implement what they are doing. Same diet and same lifestyle, see what works and what does not.
Start With The Basics, Exercise!
Yes, exercising is one of the first secret to anti aging since the old age, it is also the most well know secret there is. Whenever you visit your doctor and ask him about the most natural way there is to keep you young, his answer would most likely be “exercise”. There is a reason they call it the youth serum after all.
Exercising helps you with proper blood flow throughout your body, and your blood is the reason your body gets the oxygen it needs to function properly, fighting off unwanted bacteria, repairing your skin by creating new cells and much more.
The stretchiness of your skin becomes much more elastic as well, and that means fewer wrinkles for you.
When you mention exercise most people think of the gym, what if I tell you this, you don’t need the gym to exercise, to have an active lifestyle.
Exercising is just making sure you move your body enough to make your heart pump faster, break a sweat, that’s all. You don’t need to be in the gym for hours end.
A Sea Full Of Tea
Have you ever wondered why Japanese always look so youthful and why they outlive almost every other people from other countries? I wouldn’t say it is solely because of the usage of green tea, but green tea does have a big impact on the way they live, their diet and lifestyle.
You can notice the difference between Japanese people that are using green tea and those that are not, the ones that do are the ones that have a longer lifespan.
Green tea has an anti-inflammatory and anti-aging effect on our skin, they are also packed with anti-oxidants. If you didn’t already know, anti-oxidants help against aging and it also has the ability to fight against cancer cells. There are some green tea masks available online, specially made to exfoliate and hydrate the face, helps against wrinkles and such.
The benefits you can get from green tea is vast, here are some top 3 benefits you can get in my opinion:
- It slows down aging, the anti-oxidants found in green tea, especially Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) is responsible for slowing down the way your cells grow.
- It keeps the knees healthy and strong, another anti-oxidant found in green tea is, polyphenols. Polyphenols is said to minimize the inflammation and slow down cartilage damage. This is why green tea is used very often in Asian countries against joint pain and inflammation.
- It protects your face and skin in general, drinking green tea helps to hydrate the skin around your face, it moisturizes it. It can be applied directly onto the skin as well as a facial mask. Last but not least, it can protect your skin from the harmful UVA and UVB.
Limit Your Sugar Intake
Mankind has known and consumed sugar since the early days, produced by sugarcane. Sugar is the culprit for almost every bad thing there is on your body, diabetes, obesity, cancer and even acne.
Whenever you consume processed sugar, be careful not to overdo it, even a small amount of it can cause your skin to wrinkle and dehydrate more, that in turn will cause your skin to age faster than it should.
So long story short, if the amount of sugar you consume is much greater than the amount of sugar your cells can produce, a protein named collagen that is responsible for keeping your skin smooth and healthy can be damaged and therefor your skin will age faster and look older.
This is in my opinion one of the most important secret there is to anti-aging.
When it comes to fighting age in the most natural ways, aloe vera is definitely on the list. Aloe vera is said to fight against aging by moisturizing the skin and keeping it hydrated, all the minerals and vitamins found in aloe vera keeps providing your skin a dose of healthiness.
The beta carotene, vitamin E and C found in aloe vera helps keep the skin firm and healthy. Studies show that when aloe vera gel is used on the skin, the skin’s elasticity is improved. There are even scientific evidence saying that aloe vera can reverse aging.
This secret may not sound like much, but believe it or not, the amount of things aloe vera can do for your skin is insane. The effort you put in to get it is nothing compared to the benefits you can get.
