Searching for the best anti-aging tips for glowing skin is something I’ve been spending lots of time on lately. Once I hit my 30s, I decided that it was time to nip things in the bud before they got out of hand. No matter your age, there are things you can be doing to slow wrinkles, fine lines and age spots so that you always look as young as you feel at heart. These best anti-aging tips for glowing skin are not hard, but they will totally pay off in the end. You’ll be so happy you read this sooner rather than later.
1. Eat Lots of Fruits and Veggies in All Colors of the Rainbow
Fruits and veggies are loaded with antioxidants, which are magical little nutrients that fight oxidation and free radical damage, which can lead to the signs of aging. The more you eat, the better off you are. You know that you should be eating fruits and vegetables anyway, so this is just another reason to add them to your meal plan. Choose a wide range of colors – the brighter the better. Blueberries, kale, pomegranates and sweet potatoes are especially good choices.
2. Wear Sunscreen Every Single Day – and Reapply It Often
Sunscreen is one of the single best ways to ward off wrinkles and aging. Ever noticed how ladies who get a ton of sun (real or at the tanning salon) look older than they are? Porcelain skin is in so don’t skimp on the sunscreen. Apply it in the morning before your make-up and reapply it every couple of hours if you’ll be outside.
3. Make a Regular Trip to Your Dermatologist so You Can Stay on Top of Things
A good dermatologist can detect issues you might not be able to so seeing her yearly is pretty important. She’ll give your entire body a scan to look for changes that need attention, but she can also give you valuable advice for caring for your skin and keeping it looking fresh and young, no matter your age.
4. Try Adding a Couple of Servings of Fish to Your Weekly Meal Plan
Fish, especially fatty ones like salmon, herring, trout and mackerel, are perfect for keeping skin young and radiant. It’s loaded with omega-3 fatty acids, which your skin needs for good looks and overall health. It also contains protein, which helps retain the muscle tone in your face. If you can’t stand fish, talk to your doctor about fish oil supplements instead.
5. Wear Sunglasses when You’re out in the Sun
The more you go without, the more prone you are to wrinkles around your eyes. Without sunglasses, you tend to squint, which can crinkle your skin. Over time, this results in fine lines that will only get worse as you get older. Wearing sunglasses (and a hat) helps prevent this. With so many cute options on store shelves, there’s really no reason not to slap on the shades and go.
6. Sip a Nice Glass of Green Tea a Couple Times a Day
Who knew anti-aging could be so enjoyable. Hot or cold, green tea is full of polyphenols, which helps ward of skin cancer and helps skin stay looking young. Make a cup or two of green tea part of your daily relaxation ritual and anti-aging will never seem so easy. White tea is also a good choice.
7. Cut Back, Way Back, on Added Sugar in Your Diet
Sugar is a nightmare for skin. It leads to sagging, dullness and age spots. Plus, diets high in sugar are often low in nutrients, which only makes the problem worse. You should definitely be cutting back your sugar intake if you want to look young. That means nixing soda, candy, cookies, cake and all that other junk most of the time. Go ahead and indulge once in a while, but not every day.
