Whenever we see articles claiming to give us the secrets of younger looking skin, most of us cannot help but read them. Looking younger seems to be more important in our society than keeping our bodies youthful. Gerard Cosmetics thinks both are important so we’re going to share the secrets that will not only help you look younger, but also defy aging.
Some youthful features are genetic. Just as graying hair can be inherited, so can wrinkles and crow feet. But there are a few secrets to defying the signs of aging.
Ready to hear the secrets? These three things will make a huge difference in helping you to defy aging and look younger.
The first thing to keep in mind and most important is to drink plenty of water. Our bodies are made up of about 60% water. Dry skin ages faster and if you allow your skin to be dehydrated for very long you might do permanent damage to your skin.
Water has other benefits. One important benefit is that it protects and moisturizes your joints and helps protect vital organs. Water is the body’s main transporter of nutrients and chemicals.
You’ll impact your battle against free radicals simply by staying hydrated. Free radicals are responsible for skin damage among other things.
Did you know that drinking water actually makes you more energetic? It will help you balance electrolyte levels. If your body has an electrolyte imbalance, you’ll fatigue faster. Tired muscles react slower and also leave you feeling lethargic. Drink water—your body will be more youthful and your skin will glow.
Omega 3s are HUGELY beneficial for great skin and a healthy body. Health experts refer to Omega 3s as essential fatty acids. In addition to nourishing your skin, studies have shown that they reduce the levels of depression and preliminary studies have also shown positive results in avoiding Alzheimer’s disease.
Good sources of Omega 3s are in certain fish, such as salmon, herring and tuna. How often should you eat fish? Most health experts recommend twice a week. If you’re looking to lose a few pounds, eat fish more often.
Eating more whole grains will make your diet healthier overall. They’re packed with protein, fiber and nutrients. Will they help make your skin more youthful? Maybe not, but they can help you avoid diabetes or heart attack.
Whole grain actually means is that all parts of the grain are present in food. Read labels to be sure you get the right amount of grain in your diet. Some packaged foods say “whole grains” on the label but they are not. Examples of whole grains are: popcorn, oatmeal, whole wheat flour, and quinoa.
Remember, we all age at different rates. Some people seem to look and act young well into their golden years, while others look older than they are. As we said earlier, genetics definitely play a part, but what you eat is no less important.
