30 Beauty Tips

Who says you need to spend thousands just to look 10 years younger? With the help of skin, health, makeup, and wellness experts, we’ve rounded up 30 beauty secrets to staying young.

1.) Moisturize your skin.

 

30 Beauty TipsDry skin ages faster, so it only makes sense that keeping your skin moisturized will make it look younger. Use only non-comedogenic products on your face to avoid pimples. Lotions and body butter can be used for the rest of your skin. Moisturizers should be applied in an upward motion to prevent skin from sagging.

 

2.) Drink water.

Drinking anywhere between 8 to 10 glasses of water everyday hydrates your skin from the inside out. It also promotes firm skin and prevents wrinkles from forming. Regular water consumption also speeds up metabolism and can help with losing or maintaining a healthy weight.

3). Cut down on sugar.

The process triggers the release of enzymes which break down elastin and collagen, resulting in wrinkles, saggy skin, and increased signs of aging.
Do yourself a favor and avoid drinks and snacks that are laced with sugar. Foods that rate high on the glycemic index such as white bread and pasta must also be avoided since the body converts simple carbohydrates into sugar at faster rates than complex carbohydrate sources.

 

4). Drink alcohol moderately.

A study from 2009 follows female twins and found that women who consumed excessive amounts of alcohol looked older than twins who consumed little or moderate amounts.

5). Watch the salt

Eyebags can form underneath your eyes and cause visible signs of aging. You can avoid this by sticking to the recommended 2,300 mg or 1 tsp. of daily sodium intake.
