When it comes to aging gracefully, it’s not always about genetics and a good frame of mind. Picking the right anti-aging wholefood ingredients, loading up on antioxidants and minimizing stress can all have a huge impact on your physical appearance.
Here are 6 habits to keep you looking and feeling younger, for longer.
Outsmart Hair Changes
Hormone changes—especially during menopause—can cause hair to become thinner and more brittle. While nourishing shampoos and conditioners are good, nourishing from the inside out is better. Our Alkalizing Formula supports all 11 systems of the body – including hair, skin and nails, nourishing at a cellular level for youthful shiny locks.
Keep Vices To A Minimum
Excessive alcohol can trigger rosacea outbreaks and exacerbate fine lines, acne and wrinkles, all of which instantly make you look older. Smoking (and even secondhand smoke) triggers the breakdown of collagen, which can lead to loose, saggy skin. The puckering action made when taking a drag from a cigarette also causes deep wrinkles around the mouth. Large amounts of caffeine can cause dehydration and increased anxiety—neither of which is great for your body and skin, so consume coffee and soda in moderation. Sounds depressing doesn’t it? Which is why just 2 teapsoons of our Alkalizing Formula can help rid the body of these acid forming toxins, allowing your body to do what it’s supposed to – like cell regeneration for to slow down the ageing process.
Use sun protection everyday
Sunscreen shields your skin from harmful rays linked to everything from discoloration to cancer. Be sure to apply a wide-spectrum SPF 50 (targeting both UVA and UVB rays) at least once every hour if you are exposed to the sun.
Stress can take a toll on your brain, increase blood pressure and disrupt your sleeping habits, all of which are ageing. Try taking up a weekly yoga or meditation session to boost your mood and calm your mind.
Since you are what you eat, your diet makes a huge difference in how you age and feel. The antioxidants and vitamins in fruits and vegetables can keep your skin looking younger. Resveratrol, a powerful antioxidant found in grapes, has even been shown to help prevent premature aging. Omega-3 fatty acids offer many anti-aging benefits, so aim for two servings a week of fatty fish such as salmon, trout or tuna.
They don't call it "beauty sleep" for nothing! While you snooze, your body releases a growth hormone that helps restore collagen and elastin, the essential building blocks of young, healthy skin. To help you get your 7-9 hours a night we developed the Sleep Welle Calming Tea, for calm days and restful nights.
