Sadly, you can’t stop the ageing process or turn back the hands of time. It is a pity, but you can’t go out and buy a miraculous cure or elixir to life. What you can do however is help to slow down the ageing process and minimise the visible signs of ageing…

So, what are you waiting for? Prevention is way better than cure, why not adopt an “early action” mindset and take preventative steps to help combat ageing by considering 6 different ways to do so?

1. Eat a healthy diet.

Always remember that what you put into your body will impact on the appearance of your skin. Unhealthy food choices can create havoc, so do your best to limit their intake as much as you can. Here is why. Too much sugar in your diet is bad for you as it changes essential proteins in our bodies. If these proteins build up, they can contribute to everything from wrinkles to energy loss. So, if you want your skin to be at its healthiest-looking and beautiful best, then be sure to include lots of colourful vegetables and good fats into your diet. There really is such a thing as beauty from the inside out.

2. Maintain healthy DNA.

Vitamin A is essential to life and to your skin. Vitamin A is this skin god vitamin and the one you will always hear me talk about! It helps to control how cells divide, grow and mature. So, if the cells are healthy, then chances are that you will have healthy DNA too. By supplementing your diet with vitamin A, whether it is in the food you eat or the vitamins you take, you can help maintain healthy DNA which means you could face fewer skin issues. The regular use of topical vitamin A skincare products will also help your skin to function normally and therefore look healthy and radiantly beautiful.

3. Keep your muscles and bones strong.

Regular exercise is a key factor in looking and feeling healthy. Remember, your skin reflects your mental and physical state. If you are healthy and happy, your skin will be too. Whatever your chosen physical activity is, be sure to do it regularly and reap the benefits… A good challenge has been known to increase serotonin, helping to boost skin’s natural glow. Dancing may help to relieve the appearance of inflammatory skin conditions. Regular yoga practice can help reduce the appearance of premature ageing. Even meditation can help flush away toxins in your skin as you breathe in the good and breathe out the bad. So, what can you do to move your body and really improve your overall health and skin?

4. A healthy heart

Keeping your heart healthy has numerous benefits. As the body’s pump, a healthy heart ensures that vitamins and minerals are effectively transported and adequately absorbed into the bloodstream. If your heart and arteries are not healthy, all your other anti-ageing regimes will not make a difference.

5. Exercise your brain

Mental exercise is also one of the key elements of quality aging. By preserving a healthy, active, and inventive brain, you can keep it functioning at an optimal level. A good night’s sleep can help you look younger, but it also keeps the brain healthy too.

6. Look after your skin

Your skin is the first to exhibit the signs of ageing. Fine lines and wrinkles begin to appear, as do sunspots and pigmentation. To help maintain younger-looking skin there is only one molecule that can help reverse a good degree of photo-damage as well as ageing and keep skin looking healthy and functioning optimally. That one amazing molecule is vitamin A, so be sure to replenish what your skin loses every day through topical vitamin A skincare products. Ensure that you are cleansing off your makeup at night, did you know sleeping with your makeup on can age you 7 times faster? SUNSCREEN is the best way to stop the ageing process. I strongly recommend the Environ RAD, not only does this stop UV damage, but this product is also full of antioxidants which stop free radical damage. It protects and stops the ageing process.

If you begin to make the right choices for your body, mind, and skin from an early age, you can help defy the ageing process and have a beautiful skin for life.
