36 Powerful Anti-Aging Tips – Your Skin Will LOVE You For Following These!
TIP #1: Avoid Products With Alcohol (drink less, too)
Avoid skincare products with Alcohol in them.
While alcohol has disinfecting abilities, it dries your skin and ruins it.
And if you can, drink as little alcohol as possible. According to this article by the huffington post ,drinking alcohol severely damages your skin and eventually makes you look (and feel) older.
TIP #2: Drink 8 Glasses of Water a Day!
Water, unlike alcohol, is great for your skin and overall health.
By drinking water, you’ll notice your skin will glow, have a better texture and overall a more youthful appearance.
Don’t just believe us, try this out, drink 8 glasses of water for 21 days, and you’ll notice the difference yourself!
TIP #3: Use LESS Makeup!
The makeup you’re using is kind of like using instagram filters, it will make you look better temporarily, but its basically smoke and mirrors.
In fact, makeup clogs your pores, can cause acne, dry your skin, and we didn’t even mention the chemicals found in most makeup brands. Oh, and even if you use “organic” makeup, you’re still clogging your pores.
Sand is natural too, but will still do damage to your skin if you go around with it on your face.
TIP #4: If You Do Use Makeup, WASH IT OFF!
So many women and men don’t wash their face off after applying makeup before they go to sleep. What a terrible mistake.
Make sure you use a good organic cleanser and clean your pores thoroughly from the makeup once you’re back from wherever it is you went to (we hope you had fun by the way).
TIP #5: Sun is Awesome, but its harmful too
You probably already know this one, but its important that we remind it to you.
If you tend to go outside often and live in a sunny area (we’re from Florida…so…) make sure you –
- wear a hat
- wear a good sunscreen
- stay under the sun as little as possible
We know, the sun is amazing and fun, but it does very severe damage to your skin.
TIP #6: Take Fish Oil Supplements, DAILY!
Fish oil (omega 3,6,9) is absolutely amazing for your skin, and has so many benefits. It will help keep your skin hydrated and even help get rid of toxins in your body.
In fact, according to this article by health.com, the fatty acids in fish oil even prevent escape of collagen and crucial nutrients from your skin!
TIP #7: Eat More Guac! Seriously, Avocado is AWESOME for Your Skin!
Avocados are extremely tasty, and they are full of healthy fats, and vitamins like vitamin C and Vitamin E, which are powerful anti-oxidants and has huge benefits for your skin.
For instance, vitamin C is known for its role in collagen synthesis, and we all know how crucial collagen is for your skins health!
TIP #8: If We’re Talking Food, Remember to Eat Walnuts!
You probably didn’t know that one, did you? 🙂
Walnuts are a fantastic source of antioxidants and vitamins, zinc and proteins, which are all great for your overall skins health!
TIP #9: Dear Dairy, Please Stay Away!
Dairy is known to have bad effects on your body as a whole, and specifically on your skin.
Dairy foods will clog you pores, clogged pores will lead to acne, and in some cases even death!
Well, we got carried away, but yeah, don’t eat too much cheese.
TIP #10: Salt Sucks…(for your skins health)
You probably got that from the title, but salt is terrible for you and for your skin as well.
Not only too much salt can lead to kidney stones, it will dry your skin, and make it look puffy.
Too much sodium will dehydrate your skin, then when your body will try to compensate and over-produce oils, it can cause breakouts, acne, blackheads and a whole lot of skin issues.
So go easy on the salt!
TIP #11: Workout for a Healthy, Young Looking Skin!
We all know the benefits of working out, but did you know the positive effects it has on your skin?
By increasing and improving your blood flow, your skin cells will get more oxygen and essential nutrients to them, that of course will help keep your skin rejuvenated and young.
But wait, theres more! according to this article by WebMD, by exercising you’re flushing out toxins and bacteria out of your skin!
TIP #12: Use a Natural Serum Twice a Day For Extra Vitamins & Hydration
Natural, water based serums can help hydrating your skin and giving it a vitamins boost.
Remember, alcohol and parfum are a big no-no, but as long as you use a natural serum, twice a day, you’re doing your skin a huge favor.
We absolutely love the Vitamin C Serum by eternal beauty, its completely water based, made in USA, and is based on natural ingredients. Plus, its very affordable and light.
TIP #13: GET RED LIGHT THERAPY ANTI-AGING TREATMENTS
We covered the benefits of red light therapy treatments for your skin in this post.
To sum things up, the red light therapy helps increase blood flow, collagen production, and even strengthen your facial and neck muscles – which will firm and tighten your skin.
Instead of getting botox injections or a facelift, try this anti-aging treatment first, so far we saw amazing results ourselves and heard only good reviews from users.
TIP #14: WASH YOUR FACE AT LEAST ONCE A DAY
Pretty obvious, we know, but most people don’t even wash their face daily. And by “washing” we mean with a good, preferably organic cleanser (we reviewed some of them here).
That will help get rid of dirt and unclog your pores, and by exfoliating you’re also encouraging your skin to get rid of old skin cells and generate new ones.
TIP #15: DON’T BE GRUMPY! SERIOUSLY.
Yup, you read right. Besides your attitude which nobody likes when you’re grumpy, the facial expressions you’re making actually encourage more wrinkles.
All jokes aside, people who tend to move their forehead a lot for instance, are known to have a more wrinkled forehead.
We’re not saying you shouldn’t smile often, just be mindful of the facial expressions you’re making.
TIP #16: GET YOUR BEAUTY SLEEP! (AT LEAST 7 HOURS OF IT)
Unless you want to age faster, you better get enough hours of sleep each night! For adults, its generally recommended to sleep a MINIMUM OF 7 hours a night.
When you’re sleeping, there are many vital processes that your body, brain and skin goes through. Theres a reason its called “beauty sleep”. So get yours!
TIP #17: SMOKIN’ IS BAD…MM KAY?
Yeah, even Mr Macky from southpark knows that smoking is terrible for you. Its just bad.
For your body, brain, teeth, and of course, skin.
Don’t believe us? look at someone that smokes often. Specifically, look around their mouth and lips, see the wrinkles? good… now look at their forehead, and around their eyes? an neck? you get the picture.
We know quitting smoking is hard, but fighting cancer is harder.
Harsh, but true, so just quit. Your entire body will thank you.
TIP #18 : AVOID OILY, INFLAMMATORY FOODS!
These will only make you feel bad, foods that are deep fried, or are sugary and processed will cause inflammation in your body, which will increase the formation of… you guessed right… WRINKLES!
TIP #19: NOT ALL SKINCARE PRODUCTS ARE GOOD FOR YOU!
Using the right type of skincare products might do the opposite of what you’re trying to do – meaning – it can damage your beautiful skin.
Our skin is very delicate, in fact, 90% of people define themselves as having ‘sensitive skin’ beware of the skin care products you’re using, avoid parabens, SLS, alcohol, and other harsh ingredients.
Always read the label!
TIP #20: GIVE YOURSELF A FACIAL MASSAGE
Facial massages are not only extremely fun and relaxing; they have great benefits on your skin. Increasing the blood flow and oxygen flow to your skin cells, and firming your facial muscles will make sure your skin ages slower.
Use a facial massage device, like this one by Vijuve to make the massage more efficient and effective vs using your own hands.
TIP #21: DETOXIFY YOUR SKIN BY USING A SAUNA OR A FACIAL STEAMER!
From the food we eat to air pollution, there are so many toxins harming our delicate skin. Thats why its important to detoxify and get rid of all the toxins in our skin and body, and one of the best ways to do so is sauna treatments, or using a facial steamer.
We recently reviewed the best facial steamers, feel free to grab one, and use it often to detoxify.
After using a facial steamer, apply your favorite serum or cream, they will absorb better and faster as your pores will be wide open.
TIP #22: SLEEP ON YOUR BACK (NOT YOUR BELLY)
Sleeping on your face is known to accelerate the formation of wrinkles.
Furthermore, you might be blocking your facial skin, and remember, our skin needs to breath at all times. Sweating while sleeping on your face can create blackheads and acne, and of course, damage your skin in the long run.
TIP #23: DON’T NEGLECT YOUR NECK!
Have you noticed how the skin on your neck sags faster than your face? the reason is its a very thin layer of skin, plus most women and men forget to take care of their neck.
Buy a good neck cream (we use Nectifirm by Revision skincare) and apply it daily. The same way you hydrate and wash your facial skin every day.
TIP #24: WEAR YOUR GLASSES (you’ll Squint less)
Wearing your glasses, or even sunglasses when the sun is too strong, will prevent you from squinting. Squinting too often was proven to accelerate crows-feet.
Nobody likes crows feet.
TIP #25: DON’T OVER-WASH YOUR FACE!
Remember how we told you to wash your face? well, we haven’t changed our mind, we just don’t want you to obsessively wash your face.
Your skin produces natural oils that hydrates and protect your face, washing more than 2 times a day can dry your face and wash these vital oils off, which will make you age faster.
You definitely want to wash your face, but not more than twice a day.
TIP #26: HATE THE LINES AROUND YOUR MOUTH? DITCH THE STRAWS!
Excessive use of straws will create those annoying lines around the lips, which most people absolutely hate.
We understand you want to protect your teeth, but only use straws when necessary. Don’t drink water with a straw, for instance.
TIP #27: WANT TO KEEP YOUR COLLAGEN LEVELS HIGH? AVOID SUGAR
Research have shown that eating sugar can reduce the amount of collagen in your skin. As you probably know, collagen has an essential role in keeping your skin elastic and youthful looking. We want more of it, not less.
So you definitely want to dump the sugar!
TIP #28: GET OFF YOUR SMART PHONE FOR A WHILE!
Our generation is going to pay a toll for being obsessed with staring at our phones.
One of the damages is to our neck, constantly staring down at our phone will create more lines on the neck.
Not to mention that by staring at your phone, you’re weakening your eyes which will make you squint more often, and the crows-feet will follow.
TIP #29: CLEAN INSIDE AND AROUND YOUR PORES
Cleansing your face might not be enough especially if your pores are clogged or you have blackheads. Most cleansers simply cant extract the dirt and pollution from your pores and clean the surface.
Make sure you use a device like a blackhead remover vacuum that will suck the dirt and blackheads out of your pores.
TIP #30: Retinol Has it ALL
Retinol is one of these magical ingredients, that was proven to work on reducing wrinkles in the long-term.
We love Retinol so much we wrote an entire post about its benefits for your skin (find it here). The bottom line is, you definitely want to apply Retinol (or a Retin A cream) at least a couple times a week.
TIP #31: DO NOT TOUCH YOUR FACE!
Every-time we see someone touches their face with their bare hands, we cringe. Seriously.
You have so many germs and bacteria on your hands during the day, the dumbest things you can do is rub all these harmful germs on your face. Stop with that habit, it doesn’t do you good!
TIP #32: SUN & DARK SPOTS ARE EVIL (OR AT LEAST MAKE YOU LOOK OLDER)
While wrinkles are an obvious sign of aging, many tend to neglect sun spots and dark sports.
Part of having a young looking, clear skin, is getting rid of these too. A better skin complexion will also make you look and feel younger.
To get rid of these annoying spots, we recommend taking the SunSpot essential pills, you can get them here.
TIP #33: THERES NO EASY WAY TO SAY IT… SO JUST RUB SEMEN ON YOUR FACE! LOL
We had a difficult time writing this tip but … yeah.
Sperm has an ingredient called ‘Spermine’ in it, that has many good benefits for your skin, from hydration to preventing wrinkles. To read more about the benefits of semen (omg) read this article by Bustle.
This tip applies to men too, simply take off your … ok time to move on!
TIP #34: USE EGG YOLKS FOR EXTRA MOISTURE
If the ingredient in tip 33 is too harsh for you (ok no more semen jokes, we promise) try using egg-yolks.
Egg yolk has a very high concentration of fats and water, which will help you lock the moisture of your skin in your pores.
You can create an egg yolk mask at home and just apply it on your skin.
To make your own natural mask, follow this egg-yolk face mask recipe by Bellatory.
TIP #35: READ, READ, READ!
Educating yourself on the newest skin and anti aging news is important. There are new studies conducted on a daily basis and reading them will be very beneficial.
Remember, knowledge is (potential) power!
TIP #36: BOOK MARK THIS PAGE (OR AT LEAST PRINT IT)
Knowledge is NOT power. Its only potential power. While these tips are definitely awesome and will do wonders to your skin, they’re useless if you won’t actually follow them.
We recommend bookmarking this page, or even printing it and keeping it on your refrigerator, so you make sure to take action and improve your skin!
