Society has always been obsessed with our appearance.
Sure, some might care about the way you look more than others, but on a subconscious level we all judge each other, it is just a part of our nature as human beings.
Since it is much easier to get rid of wrinkles than to change our society, we found the best all-natural tricks, proven to get rid of wrinkles and make you look much younger!
Rubbing Oil – Yes, I know. It sounds a bit weird, but if you are the type of person that always finds themselves with dry skin, this could really be the solution for you. I am not telling you to go and drizzle some motor oil over your face. I am speaking of natural oils, many of which contain linoleic acid. Linoleic acid helps the skin retain more water, which in turn ensures that your hydrated skin stays that way longer.
You should start with 10 ml of fresh olive oil or green tea oil (if you have acne prone skin); you could also mix it with a few drops of carrot seed oil (for improved elasticity) or lavender (for calming irritated skin).
Make sure to massage the oils into your skin for a minute, then just wash your face with some warm water.
Munching On Super Foods– No, they do not wear capes, nor do they fight off villains, but they do have superpowers! Super Foods are packed densely with a bunch of healthy nutrients and unlike many other healthy foods, THEY ARE ACTUALLY TASTY! Plenty of Super Foods exist, each with their own benefits. Generally speaking, you can never go wrong with eating a Super Food! However when it comes to their anti-aging properties, not all are equal.
Some of the best Super Foods for keeping those wrinkles off your face are:
- Blueberries: Not only a tasty treat, but also very healthy! Blueberries contain a great combination of antioxidants and collagen, capable of protecting vitamin C. This Super Food pretty much just cleans your body from all of the junk food you’ve been munching on, and then adds some protection to top it off!
- Almonds: Almonds are well known for their massive amount of nutrients. They contain crazy amounts of fiber, protein, unsaturated fat, vitamin E, magnesium, manganese, copper, vitamin B2 and phosphorus. If all of those nutrients weren’t enough to make you want to buy a pack right away, there is even more! Almonds are very high in antioxidants, and can even protect your cell membranes. They have been linked to numerous health benefits, including better blood pressure levels and a lower chance of getting type 2 diabetes. There is even more! Almonds can lower cholesterol levels greatly, and reduce belly fat too. They are also able to offset the UV damage that the sun has inflicted on your skin.
- Many, Many Others…
Lower Your Sun Exposure – You are probably already aware that UV rays from the sun can damage your skin, and make you age horribly, but do you know just how mean the sun can be to your skin? The number one skin-ager is sun exposure, the more you have of it, the faster your skin will age. UV rays go beyond wrinkles. They will also discolor your skin, give it a rough texture and possibly contribute greatly to you getting some form of skin cancer.
The obvious solution here would be to stay out of the sun, right? Well, sure. But that isn’t something that all of us can afford. For those of you that can’t lower the amount of time spent under the sun, sunscreen is a real lifesaver.
Sunscreen does work; just make sure to get one with a protection factor of at least 30 and try to spread it all around.
If possible try to plan things ahead. Avoid being out in the sun when the UV rays are most potent (between 10 AM and 4 PM).
Walk in the shady parts of the street whenever possible, small things like that can really decrease the UV exposure you are getting in the long run.
These are some of the best things you could do for your skin.
Remember that no matter how long you delay it we will all look old one day. It’s nothing more than just a normal part of our life cycle and we shouldn’t be ashamed from it.
