If you’re looking for the means to look younger and turn back the hands-of-time, there’s good news for you. Up to 90% of wrinkles, sags and bags have nothing do do with Father Time, and can be easily prevented, diminished and reversed just by doing some very easy and very natural things. Check out 6 ways you can easily and naturally erase the signs of aging, starting right now.
- Close Your Eyes to Erase 10 Years
Numerous studies at the University of Kentucky and elsewhere have shown that simply closing your eyes twice a day for 20 minutes and doing nothing but concentrating on your breathing, relaxes and opens up capillaries (tiny blood vessels), increasing the flow of healing nutrients and oxygen to delicate cells at the skin’s surface in your face. This oh-so-relaxing anti-aging trick is so powerful; you can expect your skin to look three years younger within just a couple months, and look as much as ten years younger by sticking to this twice-a-day relaxing routine for the long-term.
- Walk for A Radiant Glow
According to European researchers, taking 3 brisk 1 mile walks weekly can shave up to 8 years off the appearance of your skin. Regular moderate exercise boosts your body’s production of growth hormones, plus lowers your production of the ever so damaging stress hormones cortisol and adrenalin. And, that hormonal shift also stimulates the growth of fresh, healthy new skin cells, preventing wrinkling, sagging and lack-luster skin. It even slows how fast your hair turns gray!
- Get The Egg-Glow
Egg yolks are loaded with lutein and zeaxanthin, powerful antioxidants that deliver a significant youth boost by strengthening skin cells, which is a critical step in sealing in moisture. The results? Your skin’s surface will be less prone to dryness and the fine lines that accompany it. In fact, research shows that eating 1-2 eggs daily increases moisture in your skin by up to 60%, keeping your skin looking young, radiant and egg-glow!
- Firm Up With Powdered Greens
The best skin rejuvenators come from the phytonutrients found in fresh fruits and veggies. But, don’t worry if you can’t fit in the recommended 5-9 servings a day. Powdered greens to the rescue. Simply adding 1 teaspoon 1 Tablespoon of concentrated powdered greens to a glass of water daily, will give you a huge dose of those rejuvenating phytonutrients, and mopping up free radical acids in the skin, which are shown to increase wrinkles and to sag. Depending on the brand, each serving gives you the benefit of pounds of fresh veggies, plus hundreds of skin-healing vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, amino acids, and antioxidants. Drink 1-2 servings of a quality powdered green supplement daily, and expect to start seeing some pretty amazing results in just 2 weeks!
- Make Love To Stop The Clock
A landmark Scottish study found that people, who had love making four times weekly, look 12 years younger than they are! The researchers theorize that physical intimacy boosts the production of anti-aging, feel-good hormones such as endorphins and oxytocin, while at the same time also increasing the flow of rejuvenating nutrients in the bloodstream to the collagen fibers, muscle and other supporting tissues responsible for keeping skin youthful looking and firm.
- Smooth Those Lines with Olive Oil
Scientists have found that people who regular cook with extra-virgin olive oil, as well as use it topically, are much less prone to wrinkle-causing process in the body, than those who cook with other oils, fats or lard. The reason why? Olive oil is naturally loaded with healthy monounsaturated fat and rich in compounds that strengthen and protect the skin’s underlying support structure. To look younger is not only achievable, but it’s downright easy and natural to do so.
