Ah, the age-old question… how to look younger? Haha, see what I did there?

We can’t stop nature, but we can still aim to look younger and hold off some signs of ageing - and consistency is key. 

Here are my top tips to keep looking and feeling younger.

If you're doing even a few of these, you're ahead of the pack! 

Detox

It’s important to start detoxification and eliminate unwanted toxins in our bodies to make room for fresh new blood and nutrients! Our body’s metabolism helps with this process, but in everyday life, we are exposed to many chemical hazards from air, food, and the environment.

Fasting or embarking on a detox can make you feel and look fantastic. I am not talking about extreme measures. You can find the right detox for you, and always do it with the support of a health care professional. We want your gut to be healthy and absorb nutrients from your food to fuel your whole body and keep all your organs in tip-top shape - and your skin is your largest organ!

Sleep

Our skin will look a lot healthier once we are well slept. Being ‘well slept’ is different for everyone, but generally, 6-8 hours is a good start. Sleep helps our bodies and minds to rest and heal. While you snooze, your body boosts the blood flow to your skin, leaving you with a healthy glow the following day.
This is because your blood brings fresh oxygen and nutrients to your skin cells and carries toxins away. If you aren't getting enough sleep, this can affect how your skin feels and looks.

Food

You are what you eat! Eating various healthy foods daily will help keep your body to feel fit and look younger. Opt for antioxidant-rich foods filled with nutrients rather than those containing a high sugar count or artificial ingredients.

When it comes to diet, steer clear of packaged foods, and instead, eat natural REAL foods and fill your plate with the colours of the rainbow... vegetables, fruit, whole grains, nuts and seeds.

Keep Active

Through routine exercise, even simple daily movement, we will feel happier, more energetic, and more confident. It also increases our bone density and muscle, making our body look fitter, younger and healthier. So, a brisk walk, anyone?
 


Stress Less and keep Positive

When you are truly relaxed, your face looks instantly younger because stress and worry appears on our faces. If we manage our stress and feel at peace, our faces will look more youthful and naturally more attractive as we aren’t frowning or feeling stressed. A positive mind and affirmations can lead to a healthier life.

Negative thoughts tend to bring failure and make us look older. Meditation can be a wonderful way to begin improving your mindset - give it a go if you haven't already.

Medical Check-up

Having routine medical checkups is essential to recognise any health issues as soon as possible. Never ignore niggles or skip the recommended health checks and tests for your age.

Stay Social (IRL!)

Happy social life can increase our spirit, bring a peaceful mindset, and make us feel and look younger. Communication with our friends, family, neighbours, colleagues, and others can bring happiness to us. It can be a quick walk or even a catch-up with friends over a cup of tea. Whatever nourishes your soul!

Age-appropriate make-up

I don’t care how old you are… the more make-up you layer on, the older you will look. Try to keep make-up light and natural so your own natural beauty shines through. Stick to your skincare routine to keep your skin looking great and always exfoliate the day that you have an event and will be putting on make up. Exfoliating first gives you a clean, fresh and even canvas! Ensure your skin is then well hydrated with your favourite moisturiser to ensure a flawless foundation.

Hot tip: If you're looking for a fresh and dewy look - add a drop of Healthy Glow Face Oil to your liquid foundation!

There you have it! What changes can you make today?
