Four Tips to Preserve Your Youth






At a certain age, most women will admit that they want to look younger than they are. Taking care of
your skin and hair can make you achieve this goal regardless of your age. Here are some tips to help
you preserve your youth.

Use Hair Oils and Other Hair Treatments

There are many home treatments that you may want to try to improve your hair's growth and texture.
Women who have less stress in their lives usually have thicker hair, so it could pay off to find ways to
eliminate stress in your life. If you have low iron, you can shed a lot of hair, so be sure to eat a diet full
of green vegetables, seafood, and eggs. Some early research suggests that essential oils like
rosemary, peppermint, thyme, and lavender mixed in grapeseed oil can help restore hair growth.
LuxyHair explains, “Coconut oil, argan oil (sometimes called Moroccan oil), castor oil, jojoba oil, and
olive oil all work in slightly different ways to increase the volume, shine, and texture of your hair.” Hot
oil treatments, exfoliating scalp treatments, and deep conditioning can also help preserve hair
thickness.

Start Using Vitamin C Regularly

Usually sold in either skin serums or as supplements, Vitamin C can greatly help the body maintain
itself. According to Age Immune, “vitamin C is a very potent antioxidant and free radical eliminator. It
supports the body's immune system by enhancing white blood cell activity and function. Vitamin C
also assists in the absorption of iron and formation of red blood cells and is required for the production
and maintenance of collagen, carnitine, steroids and many other essential elements.” Vitamin C is
useful in treating many skin conditions, including eczema. It may also be useful in reversing the
damage done by UV rays and in reducing dark spots on the skin.

Stay Hydrated

Staying well hydrated helps to maintain more flexible skin. HDX Mix reinforces, “furthermore, drinking
plenty of water keeps skin cells plumper, making them look fuller. One of the main problems plaguing
people today is dehydration, and there’s an easy solution to it.” Little circles around the eyes may
disappear when you drink enough water. Drinking water helps the body get rid of impurities that may
cause skin damage. If you cannot stand the thought of drinking lots of plain water, then try adding
some lemon or cucumber to it. You can also eat foods high in water content, like watermelon and
strawberries.

Get Your Beauty Sleep

As people get older, they sometimes find it hard to get enough sleep. Lack of sleep leads to more wrinkles and circles under your eyes because the body rebalances water while you are asleep. From Alaska Sleep, “there are 5 main ways your appearance suffers from lack of sleep: your hair, dull skin, dry skin, eyes and your collagen production.” Additionally, the skin has more moisture in it when you get enough sleep. Create a nighttime routine and try to go to bed at the same time each day so that your body knows when it's time to rest.

Using a natural approach to aging will help you feel better and keep you looking younger without
going to extremes. Start with these four tips today, and soon you'll see fewer wrinkles and healthier
skin and hair.
