Anti - Aging
Methods for everyday lifeRadiant and glowing skin has no age limit. These little hacks for everyday life make it possible!
At a certain age you look in the mirror and realize you're not 20 anymore. I had this realization all of a sudden - at the age of 30. After a night of little sleep, I looked myself in the morning, with my puffed eyes and the coffee in my hand, I noticed the external changes. The elasticity just isn't what it used to be.
On the outside, I find laughter lines or wrinkles around the eyes rather charismatic. They reflect everyone's own experiences and wisdom. And yet there are also signs of skin aging that you intuitively want to counteract immediately.
And indeed, there are some helpful methods that we can incorporate into our everyday lives that don't require a lot of effort. The most important thing is consistency and regularity.
The collagen in our skin ensures our smooth skin surface. From the age of (around) 25, our collagen production slows down steadily, which means that fine lines start appearing more and more due to sagging skin.
To counteract this, you should include foods in your diet that provide a natural collagen boost:
1. Red fruits and vegetables
such as tomatoes, red beets, red peppers, rose hips and strawberries. They have an antioxidative effect and are considered free radical scavengers. This helps maintain collagen levels.
2. Orange fruits and vegetables
sweet potatoes, carrots, mangoes and apricots contain lots of vitamin A. This strengthens cell growth and stimulates the body's own collagen production.
not only contain a lot of vitamin E, which fights free radicals, but also lots of omega-3 fatty acids, which helps prevent collagen breakdown.
Massages can be used specifically to massage away wrinkles. Targeted hand movements stimulate blood circulation and loosen and relax individual muscle groups.
At the moment we hear and read a lot about lymphatic drainage, also in connection with anti-aging. But how exactly does that work? The lymphatic system not only transports nutrients but also removes toxins. It detoxifies the human tissues. From time to time, a so-called lymphatic congestion can occur. This causes swelling and sallow skin. Lymphatic drainage loosens the congestion and thus ensures a fresh and younger complexion.
Drink enough water
When our water balance is sufficiently filled, our body is only able to work and be used properly. Pure water is the best way to hydrate your body. The water benefits us directly without any detours. It has a detoxifying effect - toxins and nutrients can be transported away better. In particular, the elasticity and vitality of our skin depends significantly on our water intake.
Did you know that the Chinese take several sips of hot water throughout the day? According to Chinese medicine this helps to remove superfluous edema or accumulations of water deposits.
Beauty sleep has long been proven to not longer be a fairy tale. During the night, the skin starts to regenerate, cleanse and recycle. After 2 hours of sleep, this process is at its peak. If we don't sleep, our genes can't go after their original function and this shows very quickly in our skin.
Matcha is not only delicious, it is also a real power ingredient. Matcha powder contains antioxidants, minerals and vitamins that ensure a clear skin complexion. Green tea also contains a lot of catechins. These are antioxidants that fight bacteria and infections. Moreover, they also prevent free radicals caused by sun exposure, dirty city air or stress from damaging the skin. This slows down the aging process in the epidermis. In addition, it also has a calming effect, especially perfect for sensitive skin!
