Anti-aging is actually very simple and can be practiced by all without much financial investment. There are just a few "basic rules" or tips to be followed. In this post we compiled what has proven to be the ultimate top 10 anti-aging methods.
1ST PLACE: UV PROTECTION
The sun is necessary for the skin and human health. But too much of it can be damaging and dangerous. Most of the wrinkles and lines, more precisely up to 80%, are due to extreme sun exposure. In particular, harmful UV rays that penetrate deeply into our connective tissue make the skin limp. But you can protect yourself with different day creams with appropriate UV filters, or even a better alternative: simply avoid extreme exposure to the sun.
2ND PLACE: SKIN CARE
A smoother skin has all those who nourish it with proper nutrition and provide enough hydration. For example, those who have dry skin need more hydration, Taking enough liquids, and proper nutrition, and creams containing the ingredients glycerine, hyaluronic acid or urea can help. They bind the water and cushion the skin from the inside up again. The latest trend in anti-aging are the creams with peptides, Q10 and retinol.
3RD PLACE: NOT SMOKING
Inhale up to 100 trillion toxins in one go and declare war on your body. As is well known to all smokers, nicotine is a danger to the blood vessels and the brain, the heart, causes cancer and causes premature aging of the skin. Likewise, smoking causes a narrowing of the blood vessels, which affects the oxygen content of the blood.
4TH PLACE: LITTLE ALCOHOL
Those who drink too much alcohol can be victims of many tumors such as liver, breast, rectum or upper digestive and respiratory tract cancers. And of course, alcohol consumption is also responsible for skin aging. Alcohol extracts water from the body, including the skin. Regular and excessive consumption of alcohol can even cause serious skin diseases such: acne, psoriasis and rosacea. If you drink alcohol, then only wine. It contains polyphenols. Allegedly, they have more resistance than vitamins E and C. In addition, they regenerate the skin cells, stimulate cell renewal and prevent wrinkles.
5TH PLACE: SLEEP
Regular sleep is something that must be given special attention. It is said that 7-8 hours per night are ideal. During sleep, the cells regenerate faster than when awake. In addition, the immune system creates new defenses, the hair grows and the skin renews itself. That is why nourishing anti-aging ingredients are particularly useful at night, because the skin is especially “busy” with regeneration.
6TH PLACE: HEALTHY DIET
Some foods are said to possess true anti-aging powers, e.g. fatty fish, linseed oil, rapeseed oil, walnut oil, nuts, game, fruit, vegetables, unsweetened fruit juices or spices such as turmeric, sage, ginger and rosemary. Foods that are not so good for the skin are: pork, sunflower seed oil, corn oil, safflower oil, cakes, sweets, white flour products, fatty meats, candied fruits, sausages, sodas and even table salt; the area "Nutrition" is very complex, but is one of the most important antiaging methods.
7TH: SPORT, BUT NOT TOO MUCH
Endurance training is now part of the anti-aging program. But you should not overdo it with the sport, because those who do intensive sports, boost metabolism enormously, causing even more oxygen radicals. You should also do something for stress, which can be especially extreme between 30 and 40. For this yoga, autogenic training or relaxation baths with essential oils are useful.
8TH PLACE: DRINK ENOUGH LIQUID
Water (at least 1 ½ liters a day) is the best. Or green tea. It has an enhanced antioxidant effect and can slow down free radicals.
9TH PLACE: NO SUGAR
Presumably, sugar also makes you old. The sugar, so to speak, cross-links the protein in the body to stiff structures, which naturally makes the tissue inelastic. The skin finally gets wrinkles. So if you can avoid too much and processed sugar, that would be ideal for your body.
10TH PLACE: REDUCE STRESS
Tests show that hurried and dissatisfied workaholics age faster than others. The magic word is stress management. Everyone should find out for themselves how it works best, whether with yoga, autogenic training or meditation. But the simplest recipe for stress is: Whenever opportunity arises, do as much as possible what is fun and makes you feel good. The more you turn to your needs, the less you feel overwhelmed and you do not age so fast.
