There are plenty of simple ways you can fight the effects of aging. Perhaps you need to add a few steps to your morning regime. A new sport or hobby could also be very beneficial. Or maybe, it’s better to take certain things in moderation. By focussing a bit more on self-care you’ll be able to improve your wellbeing inside and out. Here are some simple tips to help you look and feel younger. 

Stay out of the sun

The sun is the worst thing for skin aging. Be careful sunbathing out in it too long and always wear sunscreen with a high SPF factor. Avoid using sunbeds and instead, consider using self-tanning solutions which are better for your skin in the long run. Here are the top brands trending right now.

Stay hydrated

Drink plenty of water and fluids. Avoid too much alcohol and caffeine. This will help you to feel refreshed and give you more energy as well. Opt for natural energy drinks and juices. There are plenty of healthy alternatives to caffeine. Teas such as matcha and kombucha are very popular at the moment. 

Moisturize

Keep your skin hydrated as well. You’ll want to start a proper skincare routine and stick to it. Wash your face twice a day and even get an exfoliating brush. Use day cream in the morning and night cream before bed. You can read plenty of reviews of the best brands online. After that consider applying eye cream to reduce wrinkles, puffiness, and dark circles. Eye creams can help you with dark circles and there are some other makeup tricks you can use to get rid of blemishes.

Sleep

Beauty sleep is not a myth and a healthy sleep routine is important for your wellbeing. If you have trouble sleeping try a herbal remedy such a valerian root or lavender. Exposure to light affects your levels of melatonin which tells your brain it’s time to sleep. Ensure you get enough sunlight during the day, but avoid too much electronic light from screens in the evenings. Train your brain to sleep at the appropriate times. The more balanced your sleep pattern is, the younger and fresher you will look and feel. 

Dental Care

Nothing shows your age like neglected bad teeth. Get a consultation courtesy of Wahroonga Family Dental Centre to see what treatments you can have done. You’ll see and feel the benefits for the rest of your life so it might just be worth the investment. Treat yourself to a bit of a makeover this year. 

Exercise

It’s necessary for both your physical and mental wellbeing to stay as active as possible. Why not try out a new online fitness program or app? These can also be done in your living room using workout videos, so a lack of time or distance can’t be your excuse anymore. There are plenty of fun fitness apps available to download too. Get the energy you need to look and feel great this summer.
