Slow Down the Aging Process With These 5 Simple Steps

Aging is a simple fact of life, but your years don't have to be written all over your face for the entire world to see. 

Below are 5 simple tips to help you combat the visible signs of aging and maintain a youthful appearance longer. 

1.) Always remove makeup at night. 

Evidence suggests that sleeping in makeup rapidly ages facial skin. Use a gentle cleanser to remove make up nightly to help protect against premature signs of aging. When you're too exhausted to mess about at the sink, use makeup removing wipes; you don't even have to get out of bed! 

2.) Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! 

Drinking enough water can help improve the appearance of skin and help support a youthful appearance. Opt for a reusable sports bottle to ensure water is always at hand. You don't have to go overboard, though; studies suggest extra water won't necessarily yield extra results.

 3.) Moisturize with quality skincare products. 

Aging is inevitable, but using a quality daily moisturizer can help slow down the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while softening skin. Check out the Murad line of skincare products here

4.) Keep moving. 

Frequent and regular exercise can improve blood circulation, boosting complexion and overall skin tone. So, hit the gym, do some leg lifts in the shower or just take a walk on your lunch break; when it comes to working out, everything counts! 

5.) Take in a quality diet. 

Proper nutrition plays a huge role in the aging process. Look for foods with high levels of antioxidants and other vitamins that will support overall health, including the appearance of the skin. Fruits, vegetables, green tea and lean meats can all help support overall health and vibrancy.

In short, while you can't completely stop the aging process, there are steps you can take to help slow things down a bit and mitigate the side effects.
