Many women dread the aging process, panicking as soon as they spot a fine line or a gray hair. While it can be nerve-wracking, especially when it comes to braving the anti-aging products section at the drugstore, there are easy changes you can make to stop aging in its tracks. These seven quick fixes will keep you looking more youthful and vibrant longer, and surprise! They don’t involve any injections or invasive surgeries!
Wash Your Face
Washing your face before bed is a must. Even if you’re past your acne years, aren’t feeling particularly greasy, or haven’t done anything all day, it doesn’t mean that your face is perfectly clean. There’s a possibility that pollutants in the air can become trapped in your pores. If you don’t wash your face often, those harmful chemicals can speed up the aging process. Besides, it’s always nice to feel refreshed before you hit the hay.
Put Your Stunna Shades On
I for one love a good pair of sunglasses. They take my look to the next level all while protecting my eyes. The skin around our eyes is particularly thin, so it’s more prone to fine lines earlier in life. Keep the wrinkles at bay by throwing on your favorite shades in addition to applying sunscreen. The bigger and darker, the better.
Don’t Worry, Be Happy
Between working, spending time with family, and trying to find the time to take care of ourselves, it’s no wonder that worry lines can find their way onto our foreheads. So, find what makes you happy, whether it’s brunching with the girls, jogs in the park, or a trip to the beach, and do more of it, while wearing sunscreen of course.
Drinking from a straw is easy, especially at restaurants or coffee shops where your drink already has a straw in it. But, straws cause you to purse your lips repeatedly, which can cause fine lines and wrinkles around your mouth. Instead, opt to drink directly from the glass, cup, or bottle. No repetitive motion, less chance of wrinkles.
Make a Smoothie
We’ve all seen those Instagram pictures of gorgeous smoothies that make us hungry and a little envious. Turns out that jumping on the smoothie bandwagon can have anti-aging benefits. Berries are rich in antioxidants, which help slow the aging process. Smoothies also let you work other superfoods, like leafy greens or nuts seamlessly into your diet. It’s a delicious way to improve your overall health.
Keep Tension Out of Your Neck
While exercising, it’s easy to clench your neck without realizing it. Tightening up your muscles like that can pull your facial features down, making you look saggy and intensifying the appearance of the veins in your neck. So, next time you hit the gym, relax a little. It’s only a workout.
Get Some Zs
Everyone sings the praises of sleep, and for a good reason. Besides helping to decrease the appearance of dark under-eye circles, getting your 8 hours keeps your skin dewy and firm. Bonus points if you opt for a satin pillowcase and sleep on your back to prevent the skin on your face from being pulled in your sleep.
