Like it or not, every year our skin ages along with us. But instead of looking up the latest anti-ageing treatments or products, might we suggest that you try a few of these natural ways to put a stop to those pesky wrinkles and age lines?
1. Eat your heart out
As the saying goes, you are what you eat. So make no mistake, what you munch on can have a positive or negative effect on the appearance of your skin. Cut out processed, packaged and fast foods and substitute them with foods that are rich in Omega-3 fatty acids. Foods like salmon, mackerel, walnuts and cod liver oil should be your best friend. Apart from this, leafy green vegetables, fruits like pomegranate, sunflower oil and probiotics like yogurt will leave you with younger looking skin.
2. Shake it off
As we all know, there are a number of health benefits to working out. Besides keeping those unwanted kilos at bay, a good session at the gym is also good for your skin. This is because, when you work out your body releases toxins that help to circulate blood in your body, resulting in healthier looking skin.
3. Don’t be a product queen
There are hundreds of products out there that promise to rid your face of wrinkles, dullness and fine lines. But instead of using each and everyone, be a bit picky. Choose those that have natural ingredients or try natural moisturisers like essential oils and argan oil that leave your face glowing.
4. Hydrate. Hydrate.
Since 60 per cent of out body is made up of water, keeping this balance is key. To ensure that your skin doesn’t look shrivelled up, remember to stay hydrated. And to make water a little more exciting, try some infused waters, green tea or cold brewed tea and coconut water to get your daily H20 intake.
5. Glow from the inside out
As we grow older, our skin loses its elasticity and thins out. One of easiest ways to reignite your skin’s vitality is to load up on anti-oxidants. Preventing collagen damage, reducing wrinkles and protecting the skin from damage, anti-oxidants are vital for your skin’s health. So ensure that you get your intake and sip on Gardner Street’s Glow tea. Rich in anti-oxidants, this herbal tea blends hibiscus and marigold into one amazing anti-ageing skin elixir.
