Easy Ways To Stay Healthy & Look Younger Longer

BeautyWe all love going to the spa as often as possible, but those age defying treatments are not free so they can soak up your spa funds, as well as your time. There are plenty of things you can do everyday that will help you look and feel younger and healthier. The first thing you can do is moisturize your skin as often as possible. If you moisturize your skin daily or even a few times a day, you will lock in moisture, and alleviate dryness and potential future dryness, itchiness and rashes. To soothe your skin you can use the less expensive moisturizer as long as you apply often. Apply the moisturizer to your face, hands, feet and elbows in order to preserve your skin, keeping it moisturized and looking young.

When you are enjoying a long soak, hot tub or sauna make sure to hydrate yourself. We love the spa, but if you don’t replenish the life blood of your body, water, then you will shrivel up like a dried out raisin. Most people should be drinking at least a few liters of water a day, but to check exactly how much water you should be drinking you can use this excellent water calculator: Click Here For Calculator

In addition to drinking water, you can also drink apple juice for the added benefit of lowering the risk of Alzheimer’s Disease.¬† Tom Shea, Ph.D., of the University of Massachusetts feels that there might be a connection in an unknown component of apple juice which may lower the risk of Alzheimer’s Disease. Apple juice also has a high level of water, and plenty of vitamins and minerals that are also good for your health, so it can’t hurt!

We all love to tan, but the truth of the matter is that it ages your skin, and those that use tanning beds develop skin cancers easier. Natural sunlight is good for you, so if you can find a happy medium between tanning in the sun and self-browning creams, your skin will thank you. The key is to tan in the sun without getting too much sun, and then use self-browning creams to attain that darker brown color. By using this technique your skin will stay looking younger longer, and you will be reducing your risk of skin cancer.

Stress is a leading factor in premature aging, as well as a leading factor in health problems. I know it’s hard, but you’ve got to find a way to relax, and relieve the stress in your life. There are tons of suggestions and ways you can relax, such as through the use of chromatherapy, aromatherapy, Thalassotherpy, sound therapy and much more.

If you are married or in a committed relationship where you cause each other, and also share stress, try relaxing and engaging in relaxation techniques together so that you have this time to bond. In addition to growing closer in moments of relaxation, you will also double the benefits you receive from reducing the stress in your life, causing the stress you cause each other to also be reduced.

If your life is stressful because you don’t even have a second to relax, then you can try chewing gum. It sounds silly, but chewing gum can reduce stress and improve overall performance, leaving you with more time to relax. According to a new study, those who chewed¬† gum while performing a stress test produced 16% less of the stress causing hormone cortisol. Chewing gum also boosts the blood flow to the jaw and possibly the brain, helping your mental sharpness while leaving you less stressed.

We hope these tips were helpful and will give you a starting point to begin to improve your health and keep you looking younger longer. Until the next time, stay young and healthy!
