Looking young and feeling young can be achieved without spending a fortune. Sounds incredible, right? As hard as it may seem to believe or accomplish, the good news is, it can be achieved. All you need to have is the will and determination to accomplish this goal and you are good to go. If you want to stop or reverse your biological clock to maintain your youthful looks and appear younger than your actual age, then, read on to discover the fountain of youth and how to beat the hands of time before it gets hold of your appearance.
Here are ways on how to look and feel younger, no matter what your actual age is:
Make happiness your top priority in life -true happiness comes from within. Nobody could give it to you but yourself. Once you discover genuine happiness within yourself, it will make you happy all the time and give you that sense of security and strength to face whatever challenges that may come your way.
Smile –Smiling is the easiest, cheapest, and the best thing we can do to look and feel young. It is a great way to improve our physical, mental, and emotional well-being. You will get more wrinkles by frowning than by smiling. You use lesser facial muscles when you smile than when you wear that worried look on your face. So if you want to make everybody wonder and guess your actual age, a simple smile will do the trick.
Less is more in make-up –Many celebrities, beauty queens, models, and working women had discovered that as one age, make-up should be the least of their concerns. They are now proponents of “less is more in make-up” and going for simple power and lipstick will give you a fresher and younger-looking appearance. Heavy make-up will make one look older than her actual age and cover up her natural beauty.
Spend time alone with yourself-Spending time for yourself is a great way to prevent your inner being and outward appearance from age quickly. A simple meditation or time out from the pressures of everyday life can do wonders for your mental health and help reduce stress and remove anxiety. As a result, you will feel re-energized and refreshed which will show in your looks.
Exercise-Going to the gym is not the only option you have to exercise. You can jog, walk, ride a bike, climb the stairs instead of taking the elevator, play sports, and do other physical activities that do not require you to get a membership card and spend money. Exercising will improve your looks and make you physically attractive and also boost your self-confidence and mood. It can do wonders for your physical and mental well-being more than you could ever imagine.
Cut down on sugar and junk foods –Pastries, chocolates, burgers, fried chicken, French fries, donuts, chips, hot dogs, meats, etc., seem so utterly delicious and appetizing but they wreak havoc to our looks and health in general. They are rich in sugar and fats, which can cause diabetes, heart problems, damage the liver, ruin our skin, give us those unwanted wrinkles and make us look older than our actual age. If you want to preserve your youthful appearance, do your best to avoid all these unhealthy foods.
Go green- Eat lots of green and leafy vegetables like broccoli, spinach, cauliflower, garlic, and fruits with lots of anti-oxidants like pomegranate, grapes, avocado, strawberries, berries, papaya, orange, and other citrus fruits. They will help detox your liver and entire body and therefore, give you a more youthful and beautiful appearance.
Drink plenty of water- Make it a point to drink at least 3 to 4 liters of water every day. It removes harmful toxins as well as helps activate and cleanses our internal organs, prevents diseases, improves blood circulation, and rejuvenates the skin to make you look young and fresh all the time.
Get enough sleep –Lack of sleep is a sure and great way to ruin your looks. It will give you dark circles around your eyes and not to mention those unpleasant eye bugs. Pimples, saggy and dry skin are not far away if you are not getting enough sleep. No amount of make-up could cover up lack of sleep so make sure you get at least six hours of sleep every night.
Think positive of yourself – On top of it, tell yourself every morning: I am the best there is, I am unique, I have the power to achieve my goals, I can do it no matter what, today is my day, I was born to win and God is always with me. In doing so, you will no doubt spread great positivity to everyone you meet, and more importantly, you will discover that there are no limits to what you can do and achieve, if only you believe in yourself.
By following these simple tips, you can be sure that you will feel and look young and revitalized and make other people gasp in amazement and wonder what your secret is to feel and staying forever young.
