Avoid Aging and Wrinkles the Natural Way

While we age, it is inevitable to experience physical changes. Some people show signs of aging as they enter adulthood. One of the signs of aging is the changes in the skin. The skin grows thinner, becomes less elastic and develops wrinkles. People age at different rates, depending on the person’s lifestyle, work, environment or state of health.

In this generation, more and more people want to know different ways on how to slow the aging process, hence to avoid wrinkles. There are new medical breakthroughs that are now available in order to prevent aging. The problem with these advanced medicines and technologies is that it’s only obtainable to wealthy and well-to-do individuals.

For the health and cost-conscious people, there are alternative ways to slow down the aging process without spending a lot of money. One safe and budget-friendly means is to prevent aging by natural and simple ways.

Here are 7 natural ways to avoid aging and wrinkles:

1. Live a healthy, alcohol-free and smoke-free lifestyle.

Alcohol has a dehydrating effect in the body. Therefore, every time you drink alcohol, the fluid in your body depletes and your skin gets dry. Alcohol intake can stimulate the formation of wrinkles as it impedes the skin’s regeneration process.

Smoking constricts the arteries, depleting the nitric oxide needed by the skin for elasticity.

2. Avoid sun exposure.

The UV light from the sun destroys the skin cells. It’s important to wear sunscreen or sun protection when going out on daylight. Wear a bandana, hat or use umbrella, and as much as possible, wear clothing which covers the skin such as shirts with long sleeves and pants.

3. Have enough sleep.

Several doctors would say that enough sleep will help in producing more HGH or human growth hormone. This hormone helps the skin grow thicker, more elastic and less probable to wrinkle. Moreover, less sleep produces excessive Cortisol (a hormone) which can contribute to the damage of skin cells.


4. Eat nutritious and healthy food.

Balanced diet is important in your body. Vitamins help in rejuvenation of your cells, especially your skin cells. Eat food rich in vitamins A, C, E like carrots, papayas, mangoes, oranges, broccoli, nuts and seeds. Also, it is important to keep your daily intake of protein and carbohydrates.

5. Exercise regularly.

Aerobic exercise can help promote blood flow to the skin. This helps the skin to produce new cells and produce natural oils for moisture. Regular exercise facilitates skin elasticity, hence preventing wrinkle formation.

6. Reduce your stress level.

Stress can make your cells degenerate faster. There are hormones released by the body when you’re stress and these hormones can reduce the muscular tissue and make the skin thinner. There are relaxation techniques like yoga and meditation to reduce stress levels.

7. Keep hydrated.

Hydration is very important to the skin. Fluid makes the skin keep its natural elasticity. Once the body gets dehydrated, the cells in the skin will become dehydrated and lose its elasticity due to dryness. Keep your fluids at normal level by drinking plenty of water and avoiding substances like coffee and alcohol.
