We could be writing today’s article twenty years from now, or winding back the clock and penning it a decade ago – the same rules would apply. In other words, staying young is a topic that will never grow old and is always going to attract attention.
Of course, as time has progressed, we have seen a whole host of beauty products unleashed on the market which aim to make the ageing process that little bit slower. Granted, some of these can work like a charm (and others can be utterly useless). Today’s post isn’t going to focus on this sort of advice but instead, turn towards some lifestyle hacks which can help you along your way.
The power of shut-eye
While you may have to make some “compromises” in a bid to look younger, this first tip doesn’t really follow such a path.
In other words, all we’re advising is you get a bit more sleep. Experts have found that those people who do get adequate amounts of sleep have better skin, and don’t have those dreaded bags under their eyes.
So, how much is enough? Aim for eight hours, and you will be well on your way.
Don’t succumb to burnout
If you keep tabs on any psychological publications, you will have probably heard all about burnout. In short, this is the process where your body starts to give up on you because you dedicate it excessively towards one target. Usually, this target is work, but in truth, it can be absolutely anything.
So, how does burnout affect your youthfulness? You’ll be more stressed, and we all know the correlation between stress levels and the look of your skin. What’s the best way to beat burnout? Take a break, whether it’s at a spa or another relaxing location, and try and reset your brain.
Keep drinking (water)
As you can probably already tell, most of the rules we are mulling over are simple to implement. This certainly appears with this next point, as you have to make sure that you drink the recommended eight glasses of water every day.
Even if you commit to this lifestyle change in the short-term, you will see visible improvements to your skin in a matter of months.
Don’t give the game away with your hands
A lot of today’s guide has focused on the skin on your face, but it should go without saying that other parts of your body can reveal plenty of signals as well. The hands are a primary example, and if they are riddled with wrinkles, it quickly tells others that you’re a bit older than the rest of your body might suggest.
There are umpteen ways you can treat your hands to help with your perceived age, though. It starts with a basic moisturising routine and if you can follow such a process, it’s something that will make a monumental difference to the way in which you look.
