Your Guide to an Anti-Aging Lifestyle

Did you know that there are ways to prevent lines and wrinkles other than expensive creams and laser treatments? Making certain changes within your lifestyle can dramatically stop time in its tracks—when it comes to your face anyway—and who doesn’t want that? Here's a list of helpful hints that you can incorporate into your everyday routine.
  1. Wear sunglasses
    Not only do they protect your retina, a pair of shades stops you from squinting, which in the beauty world translates to crows feet around the eyes!
  2. Apply sunscreen daily
    Sun damage is the biggest cause of aging. Luckily a layer of sunscreen can shield your skin from all those UV nasties which wreak havoc on your face—pigmentation, lines, wrinkles, and age spots.
  3. Eat red peppers
    Red peppers are bursting with anti-aging vitamins A and C, which are essential nutrients for repairing the skin and rejuvenating cells, which keep your complexion looking plump and youthful. Try adding raw, diced red peppers to your salads to enjoy their maximum vitamin benefits.
  4. Watch your hands
    Focusing on your face is important, but other body parts can reveal your age just as easily. Creams, sunscreens, serums—if they go on your face, they go on your hands and neck, too.
  5. Munch on chia seeds
    Enlist the help of superfoods in your path to ageless skin! Chia seeds are high in skin-nourishing omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants. They contain tons of fiber to help your body purge out toxins, which can amass and lead to wrinkles and visible signs of skin aging.
