When we get to a certain age it’s natural to want to try to look and feel as young as possible. The great news is that there are lots of techniques and treatments that we can use to ensure that we feel younger and brighter, and that we are getting the most out of life.
Here are the ProSkin teams top 10 ways to look and feel 10 years younger:
- Drink water
This is one of the single most important things that you can do to make yourself look and feel younger. Drinking water is great for your skin and internal organs. By keeping yourself hydrated you’ll not only have more energy, but your skin will be clearer and less puffy, and ageing dark circles will be reduced.
Keeping yourself hydrated also keeps everything working well internally, from aiding digestion to ensuring that toxins and waste are removed efficiently. This is turn leads to less chance of bloating and suffering from water retention.
- Get enough sleep
Making sure that you are well rested and getting enough sleep is another key method to ensuring that you look and feel your best. Being well rested means that you will feel better emotionally and have more energy to deal with day to day life. You also look better when you are getting enough sleep, your eyes are brighter, and the skin maintains a rosier glow rather than looking grey and sullen because you are tired.
- Look after your skin
Getting enough sleep and drinking enough water are essential foundations for healthier skin, however an effective skin care routine can take your skin to the next level. By ensuring that you take care of your skin through various skincare treatments such as dry brushing, exfoliation, moisturising, microdermabrasion, and treating yourself to regular facials, you will achieve a youthful glow that comes from great skin and the knowledge that you are taking care of yourself.
If you have unwanted facial hair then why not look at permanent methods of hair removal, such as electrolysis. High self-esteem and knowing that you look good is great for making you look younger.
We all need quiet time, no matter how much of a social butterfly you are, and meditation is the perfect way to clear your mind, relax, and get in touch with the inner you. Even if you only meditate for 5 – 10 minutes every day, you will begin to notice that you feel a growing sense of inner peace and can handle whatever life throws at you with more grace than before. The sense of knowing yourself and feeling comfortable in your own skin, which comes with working on the mind, is a great anti-ageing remedy.
You don’t have to sweat it out at the gym to get the exercise you need, you could carry out 20 minutes of yoga, go for a walk or hike, or do an exercise DVD at home. By incorporating 20 – 30 minutes of exercise into your day you will look better, have more energy, and feel a sense of accomplishment. There is also the feel good chemical aspect that comes with exercise, all these contribute to a more youthful outlook and appearance.
If you are exercising but not seeing the results you would like, there are a number of non-invasive fat and cellulite busting treatments available, such as 3D Lipo. These will finish off all your hard work easily.
Laughter is the best medicine as they say. Just think how much better you feel after you’ve had a good laugh with family or friends, or even on your own watching a funny film or stand-up comedy DVD.
- Treat yourself
t on a regular basis is one of the best ways to love yourself.
- Find a great hair stylist
Your hair is one of the first things that people notice about you. The wrong cut or colour can really age you, making you look tired and washed out. It’s worth taking the time to find a great hair stylist, and spending the money on a high quality cut and colour, so that you look at your best. The right style and colour changes for you as you age, an experienced stylist will be able to help with this and take years off rather than adding them on.
- Get rid of lines and wrinkles
Men and women are lucky today to have access to a wide range of effective cosmetic treatments that are guaranteed to stop the ageing process in its tracks. Non-invasive cosmetic procedures such as, laser skin rejuvenation, dermal fillers, and injectables, will lead to dramatic and long lasting results.
- Let go of what you can’t control
Stress ages us and a lot of the stress we suffer from on a day to day basis is unnecessary because it usual comes about from trying to control things that actually we have no control over, other people’s behaviour and actions for example. By letting go of what we can’t control and focusing on the elements of our lives that we can control, we can alleviate a lot of stress. This contributes to having a sense of peace and contentment with life which makes us feel and look younger.
