15 Things You Can Do To Stay Young

If only you could lock a girl in the attic, brush her hair and experience eternal youth. Or have a painting age for you. Nope - that is not how the real world works! Everyone is in the same boat when it comes to ageing, no one likes it but we all have to go through it - just like high school. Are you are feeling the stress at work and want to maintain a young-ish look for a prolonged period of time?

Here are 15 things you can do to look like you have had a sip from the fountain of youth:

1. Remember The Basics

There are 3 things you should always do, these are: drink plenty of water, sleep at least 8 hours and smile often. Adopt this mantra and you will always stay young!

2. Eyes

Your eyes are the first place where the first signs of aging begin - those little crow’s feet. Make sure you use a good moisturizer specifically for underneath your eyes as this is where the skin is the thinnest.

3. Block those Rays

No matter how much you want to, steer clear of the sun if you don’t wear sun block! The damaging UV rays of the sun make your skin dry up and shrivel - essentially resulting in the much-loathed prune look.

4. Think Like a Child

When was the last time you jumped? Or just hopped? Well, it is time to bring back those times and having a child-like spontaneity makes you feel young!

5. Be Zesty

Lemon is one of the best substances to use for anti-ageing - whether you consume it or use it. A simple face wash with lemon juice can get rid of dry and dead skin, leaving you refreshed and zesty!

6. Exercise

Get yourself in the habit of exercising at least 3 times a week. Whether you opt for a 20 minute run or a fully fledged workout, you are making your body active by pumping blood faster.

7. Bring in the Tomatoes

Recent studies show that tomatoes are the new anti-agers - they firm your skin and reduce sunburn. Next time you feel guilty for indulging with pizza, consider it a favor for your skin and devour away.

8. Spice Up Your Life

Spicy food gives your body the kick that exercise gives our muscles. Spices help reduce chances of aging diseases such as diabetes, Alzheimer’s and arthritis.

9. Laugh!

Laughter is truly the best medicine - it makes you feel happy, gives your lungs a good workout and leaves your exhilarated.

10. Raise your Brows

Your eyebrows frame your face from your hair, so it’s important to keep them in shape. If your eyebrows are turning grey, make sure you color them to get that instant young look.

11. Breath

In all the laughing, exercising and eating, don’t forget to take a deep breath and let it all go. People who hold grudges and have negative energy around them tend to have naturally wrinkled face - so just be happy!

12. Exfoliate

Make sure you exfoliate your skin regularly, whether in the shower or before it. This will remove dead skin and increase blood circulation in your body.

13. Oil Yourself

Just like your skin, you hair gets dry as well. It is important that you make the effort to oil it once in a while to give it the loving it needs. Oils with coconut or olive are especially good to get that shine.

14. Moisturize

People who don’t moisturize their skins have a stretched and dry look about them. Keep a good moisturizer in hand to avoid this unappealing look.

15. It’s all in your Head

Your view of life is what essentially determines how you will experience it. If you feel exhausted, you will look it, but if you feel robust and energetic, you will look it as well. Don’t take things too seriously and age with grace - there’s no stopping it.
