Let’s face it, some people have youthful genes that’s passed down from generation to generation. Then, some people find the need to spend a lot of money buying various products to look younger and more beautiful.
Here are some inexpensive tips to help you look younger and more beautiful:
Tip 1: Smile often. A big pretty smile helps to spread feel-good vibes and research suggests that a happy outlook may be related to appearing more youthful as well. An Olay study found that women who had a positive attitude were 30% more likely to have facial skin that looked more than 10 years younger than their age. Are you smiling yet?
Tip 2: Move more. Exercise for your body and your face. Research shows people 65 and over who worked out moderately for 30 to 45 minutes twice a week had skin like that of a 30 year old after three months. Are you moving yet?
Tip 3: Don’t feel the heat. Avoid uncontrolled infrared radiation (IR), a type of energy emitted as heat by everything from the sun to heaters to blow dryers. It creates free radicals that in uncontrolled amounts can prematurely age your skin and cause unwanted wrinkles to your face.
Tip 4: Eat less sugar. Too much sugar can accelerate skin aging due to a process called glycation. Glycation happens when excess sugar speeds up the breakdown of collagen and elastin which keep skin firm. Research shows that when the fibers in skin connect with sugars they become weak, which results in wrinkles, sagging, and a loss of radiance.
Tip 5: Reverse age. According to a Johnson & Johnson study, sunscreen not only protects against signs of skin aging, but can even reverse them. Women who applied only broad spectrum SPF 30 sunscreen to their faces each morning for one year and no anti-agers showed improvement of 40% to 52% in skin texture, pigmentation, and clarity.
Stop wasting your money on products that may or may not work. Studies have shown that doing simple things, like smiling and exercising more can help you look younger. So, what are you waiting for? Follow these helpful tips to look younger and more beautiful.
