As we age, our skin naturally begins to lose some of its volume. Wrinkles and lines begin to appear and when we look in the mirror, we see an older version of a once youthful and radiant person. This can be quite disheartening and we often yearn to be younger again. And, while we can’t turn back the clocks, we can do some things that can help us to slow some of the signs of aging. Most of these things consist of lifestyle changes that are good for our overall health such as cutting back on sugar, quitting smoking, and staying hydrated.

  1. Quit Smoking

Smoking cigarettes can lead to prematurely aging skin and contribute to the formation of wrinkles as well as stain your teeth. Let’s face it, smoking has become a faux pos anyway. It leaves your breath and clothing smelling like smoke and has been linked to an abundance of serious health issues including lung cancer, heart disease, and high blood pressure. Quitting smoking now may help you to remain younger-looking longer, and lengthen the years in your life. In this day and age, there are really no reasons to not quit. 

  1. Stay Hydrated

We know that moisturizing is essential for skin to feel and look healthy. But moisturizing doesn’t just take place on the surface, keeping yourself hydrated will help your skin stay hydrated as well. 

  1. Enjoy Lots of Fruits and Veggies

Fruits and veggies are loaded with antioxidants and other essential vitamins. While you can take supplements if you find you’re not getting enough of an essential nutrient, it’s always best to get it from your diet. 

  1. Cut Back on Sugar

Cutting back on sugar in your diet is a great way to not only slow the signs of aging in your skin but it’s also an all-around healthy decision. Many foods contain natural sugar, and that’s typically okay as long as it’s a part of an overall well-balanced diet. You really want to make sure you cut out that sneaky added sugar that you can find in sodas, candy, juice-like drinks, and highly processed foods. 

  1. Eat Plenty of Protein

Enjoying a diet with the correct ratios of protein is also essential for healthy skin and a healthy body. Try sticking to proteins that come from white fish, chicken, salmon, and other lean meats. If you prefer a plant-based diet, there are still plenty of natural options for protein including beans, legumes, lentils, tofu, hemp seed, and nutritional yeast. 

  1. Stick to an Exercise Routine

Exercising regularly is a great way to stay healthy. Keeping an exercise routine can help to boost your mood and improve sleep as well as help with anxiety and depression. All of these benefits can help you both feel and look younger.
