Timelessness is a gift any woman would adore all her life. All women want to look beautiful, young, radiant and ravishing at all times and for this reason, when aging starts creeping in, they are prompted to turn to dangerous beauty procedures such as skin lightening chemicals, Botox and surgical face lifts. As much as it is impossible to turn back the hands of time literally, it is possible to do so by enhancing your looks; fighting age spots, wrinkles, fine lines on the skin, sagging of the skin and weak bones and muscles. Most of the methods used by women to enhance appearance only conceal the effects of aging rather than tackling them heads on. The simplest and most effective ways to feel and look younger lie in the activities we partake daily; we only need to change them a little. Here are 3 skin-deep but simple tips for a woman to feel and look young again.
1. Watch Your Diet.
Poor diet is the mother to most appearance and health problems. Eating a balanced diet ensures that all your body hormones, cells and organs work to their optimal level. Your diet should contain Vitamins, Proteins, Carbohydrates and essential minerals as lack of any of these will lead to deficiency. It is also very important to replace unhealthy food such as over processed junk food which contains lots of sugars and fats with healthier options. These junk foods are commonly referred to as “empty calories” as they only add calories yet have no value to your body. These could lead to weight gain which leads to faster aging and are also not good for your skin as they are known to cause acne. Fresh fruits and vegetables are a great solution to the aging process. They not only provide enough nutrients and essential minerals to your skin cell but they also keep the skin fully moisturized hence increasing its elasticity and ability to tackle infections. Drinking at least 8 glasses of water a day will ensure that your whole body stays moisturized and that all the toxins are flushed out of the body.
2. Exercise Regularly.
As much as it may seem exhausting at first, the results of regularly working out are exquisite. Combining flexibility training, strength training, circuit training and aerobics in your workout plan will help burn excess fats from your body. Through exercise, your body’s cells tend to become more active thus making use of essential nutrients while getting rid of toxins. Your muscles and bones are made stronger and your energy is restored hence better functioning of the body and a more fulfilling general feeling is achieved. Your joints and the body as a whole become more flexible. The skin’s elasticity, glow and moisture are also results of regular exercise. With all these benefits combined, your wrinkles, mood, appearance and strength will turn for the better. Though, it is very important to note that one should not over exercise as this will get rid of the even little fats and calories that would have been used for generation of new body cells. One may choose to register at a gym for professionally guided workouts. Though, workouts can be done at the comfort of one’s home for example simple exercises such ass walking, swimming, cycling and running.
3. Get a Massage.
For so long, massage has always been used for the purpose of beauty especially in the Asian countries. The most common types of massage include the hot-stone massage, aromatherapy massage, Swedish massage, deep-tissue massage, Thai massage, reflexology, sports massage and the tantric massage. Its anti-aging effects are one of the reasons it has been embraced all over the world. A massage involves kneading and rubbing the skin and the underlying muscles, glands and joints with the hands. This ensures that all the tension and pain in muscles and joints is relieved. It also ensures that joints are more flexible, a reason as to why massage is used alongside physiotherapy. A well-done massage also ensures that blood flow to the skin is improved by opening up the blood vessels that lie below the skin which in turn ensures enough water and nutrients get to the skin cells hence better cell rejuvenation and moisturizing. By so doing, the effects of aging such as sagging of the skin, wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, discoloration of the skin and dull skin is tackled. This is also due to the fact that the skin’s elasticity is retained. Other skin blemishes such as acne, stretchmarks and cellulite are also known to be reduced by massaging the affected area. Using beauty products that contain retinoids will also help make the skin healthier, more vibrant and beautiful. Tantric massage will make the whole experience more exciting for couples and married people as it not only serves the anti-aging purpose but also strengthens the bond between them. Tantric massage also helps couples to know each other better especially since the massage is done by themselves hence more private.
Beauty not only lies in your diet and exercise but also the little things we all ignore. Having enough sleep, at least 8 hours of undistracted sleep is also a way to get your whole system to rest. This helps improve your general body appearance, and especially your skin’s appearance. Dressing according to your age rather than keeping up with the trends and also using makeup that matches your skin color, texture and demeanor. You should remember to keep the skin hygienic by taking a bath at least twice a day and moisturizing thereafter. All these, when combined, will surely get any woman regardless of their age to feel and look young again.
