For thousands of years, human race has been seeking the key to eternal life, some sort of fountain of youth they can drink from in order to accomplish eternal youth. The discovery of a special species of jellyfish, Turritopsis dohrnii, has given us all a trace of hope that a reinvigorating elixir is still within our reach. This extraordinary creature is continually rejuvenating itself by recalibrating its life cycle and starting anew.
Still, until the scientists get to the bottom of its secret of immortality and figure out a way to adapt it for human use, ladies should stick to the tried and tested beauty routine to maintain a healthy and youthful appearance. By getting plenty of sleep, eating organic, additive-free food and applying quality skincare products, you can retain your skin elasticity for many years to come.
Good night’s sleep
They don’t call it beauty sleep for nothing. Due to a general misconception that sleep is a lost time, a lot of people don’t give it enough credit and spend less than 7 hours of night’s rest. The benefits of a good night’s sleep are numerous, but we shall only name some of the beauty-related ones: maintenance of normal metabolism, improved mood (we radiate when we’re happy) and a rested, rosey look.
More precisely, sleep promotes the production of collagen that gives our skin a plump and supple quality. Lastly, sleep deprivation can lead to weakened immunity and proneness to skin irregularities, breakouts and serious skin conditions.
Before reaching out for fancy creams, note that the beauty comes from the inside first. In this case, we are referring to the food we intake on a regular basis. If you’re a veggie lover, this will decidedly cheer you up. While we’re not going to go into detail about vegan diet, the recent studies have found that plant-based diet is both highly nutritious and produces legitimate anti-aging effect.
The remarkable results can be credited to its antioxidant content that ousts free radicals from the body, thus preventing or slowing down the aging process. On top of that, fruit and veggies are packed with vitamins and other nutrients that add to the skin’s glow. Lastly, make sure your groceries are coming from a reliable, organic source.
There’s one more step we can take before we move on to the high-end lotions and creams. Simple homemade masks are a relatively inexpensive way to cleanse your skin and give it a tight and revitalised feel after a week of everyday make-up application.
Common kitchen foods such as fruit (bananas, strawberries, lemon, etc.), yogurt, vinegar, eggs, and honey can be used for a homemade mask mixture.
Appropriate skin care
When more advanced skin care is in question, mighty retinol is one of the top notch components of anti-aging creams and serums. It’s a truly multifunctional element that can repair skin damage, treat discoloration and boost collagen production. Pair it with moisturiser and mineral make-up, and you’re bound to have spectacular skin for many more years.
The key to youthful and refreshed skin lies in a comprehensive beauty regime. Feed your skin inside and out and make use of both homemade and high-end products for best results.
