8 tips for anti-aging

  1. apply with intent food-facial-mask-400x400

make the application process of your facial cream more like a mini massage. here’s why: upward, gentle circles on the cheeks, forehead, and neck will help fight the natural, downward pull of gravity.

 

  1. prevent the wrinkles

treat them from the inside out with high amounts of water intake-drink your weight in ounces. on the outside, apply products that contain hyaluronic acid, which holds water in the skin, giving it a nice plump look

 

  1. revive parched skin

DIY masque: mix two tablespoons each of honey, avocado, and olive oil and one mashed mango. the honey is hydrating. avocado is loaded with omega-3 fatty acids and b vitamins, which are incredible for your lymphatic system and restoring the skin’s lipid layer,  mango is rich in skin-brightening vitamin c, and olive oil is anti-inflammatory and reverses the signs of sun damage.

 

  1. bring oil back

use food-grade oils of almond, olive, or coconut before bed. I’m a  big fan of coconut oil – it’s known to soften and shrink wrinkles and protects against sun damage.

 

  1. pick up a dry brush

dry brushing,  exfoliates dead skin, stimulates circulation, and eliminate toxins — all essentials for healthy skin. i do this  three-to-four times a week before showering. i’ll have more on how to dry brush in our next beauty post.

 

  1. drink your greens

swapping out your afternoon coffee for a veggie drink. it helps oxygenate the skin and stimulate lymphatic drainage, so it’s de-puffing, too

 

  1. butter up your skin-care regimen

you might reserve rich shea butter for dry, winter skin, but it’s an important anti-aging ingredient to include in your routine year-round. shea butter as a moisturizer has been clinically proven to reverse the signs of aging – to save money find a moisturizer that includes shea butter for an all in one all body treatment.

 

  1. don’t neglect your neck

as you age, it’s important to care for your neck, which includes regular exfoliation. use a smooth-beaded scrub a couple times a week in the shower. as you apply it, look up so the skin is pulled really taut, makes it easier to roll the scrub across the skin.
