Tips for a Younger Looking Skin

I know for a fact that some women dread reaching the age of 30. I myself am in my thirties and there are times when I look at myself in the mirror and check for even the minutest signs of aging. Fortunately, looking young is in my genes. All my sisters are in their early forties but seem to look like they're in their thirties. I look like I'm in my twenties. Lucky me! But not all of us are as lucky. Don't despair because there are ways to turn back the hands of time or at least delay the signs of aging. Here are some valuable tips:
  1. Get lots and lots of sleep because lack of it will make your skin look dull. Eventually, wrinkles will appear and skin will sag.
  2. Watch what you eat. Instead of eating pork and beef, eat vegetables, fishes, fruits, and chicken. Avoid eating sweets. Too much sugar is not good for the body.
  3. Find time to exercise so as to stay fit, trim and healthy.
  4. Drink at least eight glasses of water everyday for proper hydration.
  5. Don't smoke because this causes wrinkles and can really age your skin fast.
  6. Always wear sunscreen to protect your skin from the harmful rays of the sun.
  7. Take vitamins and supplements especially those with Omega 3 oils.
  8. Always put on moisturizer before going to bed or even before applying makeup.
  9. Apply eye cream gently.
  10. Don't lead a too stressful life. Too much stress makes you old. Try to relax more and do the things that makes you happy.
