Let’s face it – everyone ages. Some do it gracefully, while others… not so much. Obviously, we all want to be the former, but how exactly do we achieve such a thing? Well, it’s not as difficult as you might think. With exercise, a healthy diet, a good skincare routine, plus a few professional pick-me-ups every now and then, you too can beat the sands of time.
1. Stay Active
Don’t be a couch potato! Not only does exercise help you lose weight, tone muscles, and improve your mood, it also helps you think clearly. The connection between physical exercise and better brain power has actually been demonstrated by multiple studies. In fact, walking for just 10 minutes a day lowers your risk of Alzheimer’s by 40%. How does it work? Well, exercise actually helps to reduce stress and anxiety, which in the long run, improves your memory.
Make time for at least three 20-minute workouts a week. Run, bike, swim – do whatever you like most.
2. Consume More Fats
The healthy kind, of course. Omega-3 fatty acids are actually amazing for your body. They help stabilize your mood, maintain bone strength, and reduce signs of aging by reducing inflammation in the body. It can mostly be found in salmon, walnuts, and seeds, which you can easily incorporate into your diet. Virtually every expert agrees that you only need about 2 grams a day, but if you still aren’t getting enough, consider taking fish-oil supplements.
3. Drink Red Wine
Good news – a little red wine can offset a host of health problems. Resveratrol, a substance found in red wine can reduce the risk of diabetes and liver problems, and reduce arterial clogging in mice. Does that sound too good to be true? Unfortunately, there is a catch. You’d have to drink 180 bottles of red wine a day to reap the same benefits.
Luckily, Sloane Inc. has come up with something to harness the healing power of Resveratrol. Sloane Inc Dermaboost Resveratrol & Pearl works in tandem with your everyday moisturizer to give your skin a new lease of life. Just add a spatula of Resveratrol & Pearl powder to your favorite moisturizer for near-instant results! Of course, you can keep enjoying your red wine in the meantime, but make sure not to exceed one glass a day.
4. Treat Your Skin Right
A good way to keep your skin healthy is to apply vitamin C serum under your moisturizer and makeup. Vitamin C helps to stimulate collagen production, and also brightens your skin without making you look pale. Be sure to use a broad-spectrum sunblock every day to protect against harmful UV rays, which cause aging and skin cancer. Innisfree’s Eco Safety Perfect Sunblock SPF50+ is one of my favorites. Since it’s made from natural ingredients like sunflower oil and green tea extracts, it doesn’t irritate the skin.
5. Yes, That Botox
Sometimes, the most obvious solution is the easiest one. When done well, Botox can make you look 10 years younger, without any of the Uncanny Valley-esque stiffness you see on TV – just make sure to get your work done at a reputable clinic. But if you’re looking for something a little less heavy-handed, fillers are the way to go.
The Sloane Clinic offers treatments to restore both skin youth and firmness naturally. How do fillers work exactly? During the treatment, the skin is suffused with micro-injections of hyaluronic acid. This miracle ingredient is what keeps your skin firm and hydrated. The whole procedure is very quick, usually taking less than 30 minutes, with minimal downtime. Did I also mention how the benefits can be seen immediately? So, if you’re looking for a quick way to reverse signs of aging, or simply improve your facial features, go ahead and give fillers a try!
