We all want to look younger for longer, right?
But where do you start?
There’s countless creams, lotions and serums to choose from not to mention means such as botox to make us look younger. There’s TOO many options…
But, we’ve made it naturally simpler…
Here are our top tips to younger, healthier looking skin:
1. Healthy skin comes begins from within!
Beautiful, young skin originates from inside the body. That’s why eliminating grains and processed sugars from your body can keep you looking healthy AND young! Ensure to add these anti-aging foods into your diet to keep you looking younger for longer:
1. Whey protein
2. Raw, Organic eggs
3. Leafy Greens
2. Limit intense sun exposure!
Exposing your skin to intense sun for long periods of time can lead to sunburn, making your skin more susceptible to damage and aging. It’s best to avoid the intense day sun (between 10am and 2pm) and wear a hat and protective clothing if you are out between these times. It’s also important to note that you should AVOID SUNSCREEN! Whilst it acts as a barrier between your skin and the sun, sunscreen is a toxic chemical that can increase your risk of disease.
3. Use Coconut Oil
Coconut oil is magical! It comes with so many benefits when consumed as well as when applied topically. Coconut oil is a fantastic way to rejuvenate the skin. When applied, it keeps the skin’s connective tissues strong and supple which can prevent wrinkles and sagging skin. Using an organic, chemical free, all natural coconut oil is best!

4. Have plenty of Omega 3
Omega-3 fatty acids such as fish oil or cod liver oil are essential to healthy skin, however many of us are deficient in this area. Omega-3 fats help keep your skin looking vibrant, young and healthy and have been known to:
– Normalize skin lipids and prevent dehydration
– Keep skin cells strong
– Have an anti-inflammatory effect that can calm irritated skin
5. Avoid cigarette smoke
We all know the effects that cigarette smoke can have on our bodies, whether it’s passive or not. But, it’s important to recognise that exposure to cigarette smoke can accelerate the aging process. It limits the skin’s ability to absorb essential nutrients, accelerating wrinkling and aging.
6. Relax your facial muscles
If you’re a regular frowner or broad smiler, often over time lines will form where the muscles tend to contract. During the day, if you notice yourself frowning, try to relax the face instead of straining. Also avoid sleeping on your face as this can cause wrinkles due to the constant pressure and pulling of the facial skin.
