I looked at a picture of myself that was taken during my first year of college. I was young and fresh faced with long beautiful shiny hair. Then, over the next few day, something strange happened. I began to notice my flaws every time I saw my reflection. Who was this person I was looking at in the mirror today and what did they do with the younger, more attractive version of me? When did those wrinkles appear? When did my hair begin thinning? It has all been progressive over the years. First the husband comes, then the baby and before you know it you lose yourself. Well, it’s too late to start rejuvenating and what better place to start than the one thing you wear every day. Your skin.
Top Four Ways To Look Younger
- Drink up! Water that is! It doesn’t matter who you are, your body needs water…and probably more than you think. Water plays a huge role in hair, skin and nails. The way your skin looks can be one of the biggest signs that you are not drinking enough. Dry, rough patches and acne flare ups can be signs that you aren’t getting enough water. Start drinking 8 8oz glasses of water each day and your body will feel the difference. Toxins will be washed away, your skin will have a luster and your hair will be shinier. You may even notice your pants get a little looser, which is a HUGE bonus!!
- Quit chewing on your cuticles! Or in other words: quit stressing out! Stress can wreck havoc on your body and can cause you to age faster than you would like. It can cause a rise in blood pressure and weight gain. It can even cause your hair to fall out! A good outlet for stress is exercise. If you are feeling particularly stressed out, try taking a walk around the office or a bike ride around your neighborhood. Exercise releases feel good endorphin’s which can help lessen the impact of stress on your body, and on your beauty. Plus, exercise is good for you!
- Don’t skip the trim. Sometimes it’s easy to put getting your hair trimmed on the back burner. It is so important to make it a point to schedule a visit with your hair stylist every three months or so. While getting your hair trimmed regularly won’t necessarily make it grow any faster, it will help you maintain healthy and beautiful looking hair. The secret to hair growth has more to do with your health and what you put inside your body.
