Age may be just a number (and we’re always going to remain 17 at heart), but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t be thinking ahead when it comes to wrinkles.
It’s never too early to lend our future selves a little helping hand – and it doesn’t have to cost a fortune. The first step anyone wanting to combat the ageing process should consider is what they’re putting into their bodies before splashing out on expensive lotions and potions.
People are living much longer now, so the demand for anti-ageing treatments is a lot higher than it used to be. This, paired with the modern phenomenon of ‘selfies’ and the like, means we really look at our skin and face a lot more closely and are a much harsher on ourselves. We want fast results on external treatments, when the best thing we can do for ourselves is starting from within.
The earliest signs of the ageing process are not just skin-deep and start as early as our 20′s in the liver and kidneys. Creams and cosmetic treatments only help to a certain level, but if you help yourself from the inside, it will show on the outside. The human body is designed to self-heal and repair, and every cell in the body has got the right mechanism to heal on its own. We have to just boost it with the right nutritional strategy. Ageing is an inevitable part of life. We cannot stop the cycle, so when we say ‘anti-ageing’ it is actually just slowing down the process. Scientists have shown that the most important markers of getting old are an increase in blood pressure, high cholesterol and poor muscle strength. If these three can be controlled, your skin will automatically be better.
