For as long as the world spins around, we will all be looking for the latest “hacks” on how to look a little bit younger.
However, it would be fair to say that these principles have changed somewhat over the last few years. Now, a lot more people are also realizing that the best way to do this is to avoid those products that are filled with every chemical under the sun, and instead focus solely on keeping on top of your health the “natural” way.
Bearing this in mind, let’s now take a look at five methods that can help you achieve this.
It all starts with lemon juice
Something that you may have noticed over the last few years is a surge of people who are consuming lemon juice in warm water in the morning.
This has gone beyond the days of being a fad; it has been found to make a monumental difference to your gut. This mixture will boot-up your digestive system in the morning, make it run a little more smoothly, and just make your whole body a lot more alert. Sure, this might just be a psychological benefit in some regards, but the fact that you have more of the “get up and go” attitude means that you are generally perceived as being younger.
There is a more direct way in which lemon juice can assist you, as well. For example, lemons contain high amounts of antioxidants, and these are able to rid your body of the toxins that can cause your skin to age. There is also the Vitamin C factor to take into account; studies have shown that this vitamin (and lemons contain it abundance) can increase collagen production and as we all know this is something of a magic ingredient when it comes to looking fresh and younger than your birth certificate might suggest.
It’s not just about fluoride when it comes to your teeth
As we all know, your teeth are one of the first things that start to go as you age. They start to discolor, and fillings start to become more common.
If you were to ask an emergency dentist what one of the most effective chemicals when it comes to your teeth are, there’s no doubt that fluoride would be right up there.
However, there are more natural ways to avoid the dreaded tooth decay. One of these comes in the form of Aloe Vera, which has been found to tackle the bacteria that is responsible for producing plaque.
It doesn’t stop there either. From a natural perspective, both clove oil and organic coconut oil have been said to reduce the chances of succumbing to tooth decay. Sure, there’s no doubt that fluoride is always going to be king of the chemicals when it comes to your teeth, but the point we are trying to make is that if you look hard enough there are some natural ingredients out there that can help you significantly.
Hydrate yourself – but you don’t have to rely solely on water
We’ve been taught the principles of hydration for decades now, and we all know the importance of getting our two liters of water per day in a bid to stay healthy.
However, it doesn’t have to be a boring process. Let’s not forget that the stores are now packed with herbal and fruit teas, both of which are natural solutions and free of caffeine.
The result? Your skin will reap the rewards, and feeling young is a breeze.
Stay out of the natural elements
At times, it might just be a case of avoiding the “natural elements” of life. By this, we mean the sun, and specifically how it can damage your skin when the conditions reach their peak.
As we all know, the sun is responsible for a surge in Ultraviolet radiation that can damage your collagen, which happens to be the stuff that keeps your skin looking young and fresh.
Fortunately, there are now natural ways to tackle this issue without staying out of the sun altogether. Cosmetic brands have released various natural sunscreens onto the market, so you can find the best of both worlds’ solution pretty easily.
Sometimes, you don’t need chemicals at all
Our final point won’t cost you a dime, and instead just focuses on the quality of your sleep. You can invest thousands of dollars per year on the most established beauty products, but it will all be for nothing if you haven’t got your shut-eye in order.
Put simply, the country as a whole doesn’t sleep enough. The optimum is said to be eight hours and when you start to get to this level, your body will start to produce all of the necessary growth hormones that can prevent the dreaded wrinkling in your skin.
A closing summary
When it comes to staying young, the general consensus is that you have to pay the big bucks to buy the magazine-endorsed products that the beauty industry is continuously rolling out.
Sure, some of these products are excellent and can help you greatly. However, also don’t forget the natural factor, and how tapping into some of the less-commercial tactics can help you just as much when it comes to rolling back the years.
