You’ve stocked up on facial creams, undergone beauty treatments and also considered going under the knife, all in an attempt to look young. But, what if we told you that the secret to younger-looking skin has nothing to do with what products you use? Yes, you read that right. Instead, your lifestyle and daily habits determine the health of your skin.
But wait, don’t give up just yet, ‘cause we come with good news. Below, we’ve listed a few daily habits you need to change in order to achieve younger-looking skin. Read on to know what they are…
- 01. Replace coffee with tea
- 02. Moisturise your neck
- 03. Do not step out without sunscreen
- 04. Practice yoga and meditation
- 05. Have one superfood a day
01. Replace coffee with tea
Okay, we know some you can’t function until the first sip of coffee touches your lips, but did you know that caffeine excretes fluids from your body and depletes the level of moisture? Regular consumption of coffee will dehydrate your skin and invite the signs of ageing sooner than you would like. Tea on the other hand, especially white tea, has the power to protect your body from enzymes that break down elastin and collagen. Time to make the swap, ladies!
02. Moisturise your neck
You religiously pamper your facial skin with hydrating products, but do you the same for the skin on your neck? If the answer is no, you need to start doing so ASAP. Why? Because your neck is one of the first places to give away the signs of ageing and therefore, it’s essential to moisturise and massage this area on a regular basis.
03. Do not step out without sunscreen
We’ve said it before and we’re saying it again - wear sunscreen daily! The harmful UV rays are one of the major reasons for premature ageing. Thus, no matter if the sun is out or not, you MUST wear a sunscreen before stepping out of the house during the day.
04. Practice yoga and meditation
Stress combined with an unhealthy lifestyle is a recipe for disaster. Not only does it affect the health of your body but also your skin. For the sake of your mental peace, practice deep breathing exercises or yoga and meditation. Following these habits on a daily basis will circulate oxygen in the entire body, making your skin glow and improving your overall health.
05. Have one superfood a day
Certain fruits and veggies are rich in antioxidants and possess amazing anti-ageing properties. Consuming one superfood a day can bring about a positive result in the overall health of your skin and body. Pomegranates offer a wide range of skin benefits including protecting the skin from damage caused by UV rays. Another vitamin C and antioxidant-rich fruit is goji berry.
