6 Surprising and Little Known Anti-Aging Tips | Vegatox
You are going to discover proven and effective steps you can start taking right now that can make a surprisingly big difference.
Here are our powerful anti-aging tips:
1. Sleep on Your Back
Sleeping on your side or stomach was okay when you were in your twenties.
As an adult, unless you are okay with a creased face, your one best choice is to learn how to sleep on your back.
When you sleep on your side or stomach, your face is smashed up against your pillow for seven-eight hours a night.
Multiply that by every night for a lifetime and it can contribute to wrinkles known as sleep lines on your face (especially on the side you usually sleep on).
When you’re young, your face bounces back from the pressure of sleep, but as you age and collagen and skin elasticity decreases, the sleep lines become permanent.
The mechanical forces that occur during sleep can lead to “crow’s feet” , fine lines by your eyes, lines around your mouth, flattening of your forehead and more. (1)
Sleeping on your back is the best remedy to this, and side and stomach sleepers may be able to train themselves to stay on their back by putting rolled up towels by their sides so they can’t roll over.
If you can’t imagine sleeping this way, try a sleep wrinkle pillow that’s designed to cradle your face and help prevent sleep lines.
An added benefit for women who learn how to sleep on their backs: fuller and firmer breasts. During back sleeping, your breast weight is supported by your body, preventing sagging.
2. Ice Therapy for Facial Rejuvenation
Run an ice cube over your whole face, including over the lids of your closed eyes, for about 10 seconds.
Over time, this cold treatment will cause your capillaries to rejuvenate. With renewed capillaries, more nourishing blood will come closer to your skin's surface, which helps heal and freshen your skin, giving you a younger, fresher look.
It is better to do this ice application first thing in the morning.
Not only will the treatment tone up your skin, but it will also help you get wide-awake fast.
If you practice every morning, your face will become healthier, fresher and younger every day.
3. Top Anti-Aging Foods to Feed Your Skin
Fresh greens and beauty superfoods alkaline the blood which in turn feeds your skin.
Feeding your skin right helps keep up collagen production and keeps your capillaries strong and elastic.
Here are our 5 favourite anti-aging foods:
Amla purifies blood and fights toxins which help you get a beautiful and radiant skin. Amla stimulates pro-collagen (2) while protecting your skin from sun damage, helping to prevent dark spots and wrinkles.
Rosehips are particularly rich in vitamin C, carotenoids, polyphenols, and various flavonoids that have potent antioxidant activity.
In the 8 week study, a total of 34 healthy subjects, aged 35–65 years, with wrinkles on the face (crow’s-feet) were subjected to clinical study of the effects of the rose hip powder.
After 8 weeks of taking rosehip powder, this group showed statistically significant improvements in crow’s-feet wrinkles, skin moisture and elasticity.
Results suggest that intake of the rose hip powder improves aging-induced skin conditions.(3)
Hibiscus. The natural acids present in Hibiscus help to purify skin by breaking down dead skin and increasing cell turnover. Hibiscus is rich in specific antioxidants called anthocyanins, which fight off free radicals and prevent premature skin aging.
Sea Buckthorn is particularly rich in the rare essential fatty acid "Omega 7" (Palmitoleic Acid) - also known as the "Beauty Omega" for its contribution to shiny hair and glowing skin.
Acai berry contains powerful antioxidants and phytonutrients. In South America, the Acai berry is also known as the 'Beauty Berry' because of its power to keep skin healthy and youthful.
Choose only superfoods that are Certified Organic, such as those from Vegatox Beauty Glow Blend.
When dead skin cells accumulate on the surface of your skin, it gives you a dull appearance.
Exfoliation removes the dead surface cells, stimulating your skin’s deeper layers to create new cells on the surface, leading to a smoother, more youthful-looking complexion.
Exfoliation reduces the signs of aging - if layers of dead skin are not shed, fine lines and wrinkles would stand out more, causing us to look older.
If you spend money on quality skincare products only to discover that your skin isn't benefiting from them. If you have layers of dead skin piled up, the product might not be able to penetrate them. The product is not to blame. Exfoliate regularly so your skincare products get a chance to really sink in and work their magic.
Facial dry brushing is one of the best and most convenient methods of exfoliating the face.
5. Facial massage
In the morning, you may notice your skin looks puffier. This happens because sleep decreases circulation in your body, which means less blood flow to your face, and that is why you need to stimulate your facial skin daily.
You can try facial massage with your knuckles, gua sha or facial roller.
Facial massage is an excellent way to get your circulation going again and give your face a healthy glow. It relaxes your facial muscles and energizes your face.
Try facial massages from Youtube (knuckle massage, gua sha, facial roller), find your favourite and do it every morning for 5 min after applying natural oil or moisturizer.
6. Choose Natural and Organic Cosmetics - Avoid Synthetic Ingredients
A lot of ingredients found in traditional skincare products (face washes, lotions, sunscreen, etc) have now been linked to health issues such as allergies, eczema, cancer, hormonal disruption, and reproductive problems. So yes your skincare can make you sick!
Whatever we apply to the skin gets absorbed fast, and some of it may even find its way into the bloodstream.
A study conducted at Harvard University found that the average person is exposed to more than 100 chemicals from soaps, cosmetics, and various other personal care products before they even get to work in the morning.
Have you ever read the labels on your cream, deodorant or bubble bath?
So it's essential you use the finest, most natural products you can find.
