Beauty isn’t only genetic, rather it also depends heavily on our everyday practices. Small habits can help us maintain a younger and fresher look, as long as we persist with them over time. Their effect over a period of time is great in the long run, so don’t underestimate them even if you don’t see immediate results. Here are 10 tips for keeping a youthful look that in ten years’ time you’ll be happy you followed!
1. Lift your feet above your head
During a phone call or while waiting for your food to heat in the microwave, lie on your back and lift your legs above your head. This practice will help prevent varicose veins in the legs because your blood will pump towards your head and prevent the effect of gravity on your legs – this will give the veins in the legs a little rest.
2. Apply sunscreen throughout the year
For some of you, this may sound a little strange, but applying sunscreen to your skin is important in the winter as well because, even then, the sun’s rays are harmful to our skin. Studies have found that the skin of people who used sunscreen all year long aged 24 percent more slowly than those who didn’t. For the same reason, you should also wear sunglasses every season, not just in the summer, to protect your eyes.
3. Do not forget to take care of the skin on your neck
The skin on the neck is as thin and delicate as the skin on the eyelids. It is also important to remember to apply moisturizer to your neck every day.
4. Take a bottle of water everywhere
Almost everyone already knows how important it is to drink at least 8 glasses of water daily, but not all of us do so, usually because we forget. So, just make sure to take a bottle of water with you wherever you go, whether it’s in your bag or on your desk, you’ll definitely drink more water every time you see it.
5. Sleep on a satin pillowcase
Have you ever woken up with wrinkles on your face from the creases on your pillowcase? Know that this is also why you wake up with wild hair, and if you use a smooth silk or satin pillowcase you can protect your skin and hair from these effects and wake up with smoother skin every day, which will eventually protect your youthful look.
