Best Natural Ways To Combat Aging Skin
Who doesn’t want to hang onto a youthful complexion for as long as possible? Men and women alike lament their aging reflections as a combination of lifestyle experience, stress, and diet take their toll on our skin. Although there are plenty of products on the market that claim to be the next “fountain of youth”, we really don’t know what goes into making these miracle products, and the result of excess chemicals on the skin will only hasten the aging process.
Fortunately, there are some simple things you can do right at home and in your daily routine to combat the aging process and turn back the clock once more, revealing a youthful, glowing complexion. Follow these tips for your best skin yet–naturally!
1. Give yourself—-or get—a facial massage
Nothing works more effectively at improving circulation and helping to drain lymph nodes than a facial massage. Whether you give yourself a massage at home or treat yourself to a relaxing spa session, you’ll see results with consistent stimulation; your skin will take on a luminous glow, and you’ll see fine lines and wrinkles plump up once more.
2. Start taking Omega-3 fish oil
Omega-3 is your ticket to soft, smooth, supple skin. Fatty acids present in this supplement strengthen cell membranes, making them less susceptible to environmental damage. Your skin is better able to absorb nutrients as well as slough off dead skin cells and impurities that can contribute to a duller, less vibrant complexion. Take supplements daily from 1-3 months for optimal results.
3. Drink water, and lots of it!
Drinking enough water can dramatically improve the look and feel of your skin, but you must drink enough of it to flush impurities from both skin and body. If you consistently drink 3 liters or more daily, you can expect to see a dramatic improvement in the tone and texture of your skin within 5 days! That’s the fastest facelift available on the market today!
4. Use a humidifier while you sleep
Skin that is dry is prone to sagging and wrinkles, while hydrated skin looks fresh and dewy. Simply running a humidifier while you sleep will reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles, and leave you with hydrated, plumper looking skin in no time. Use nightly on your bedside table for a fresh looking complexion each morning.
5. Tighten and tone with egg whites
Nature’s best mask is good old egg whites–whip up a quick mask and apply for an instant brightening facelift.
To make your face mask, combine:
- 1-2 egg whites
- 2-4 tbsp warm water
Whisk together until the mixture is white and frothy. Apply it to your face with a cotton ball and leave it on for ten minutes, or until your skin feels tight. Rinse off with warm water and pat dry.
6. Decrease inflammation in the body
One of the primary causes of aging skin is inflammation in the body. Reducing inflammation is easy with this at-home tonic that you take each morning on an empty stomach:
1/2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
Combine and ingest daily each morning for mind and body benefits that extend to your skin and beyond.
7. Reduce water retention to enhance facial contours
Reducing puffiness and extra water underneath the skin will bring out your best complexion and enhance the overall tone of your face. You can reduce water retention by:
- drinking the juice of 1/2 lemon in 1 cup warm water each morning
- drink unsweetened cranberry juice
- cutting down on refined foods like flour, sugar, and foods high in sodium
- making note of foods that cause retention
