Hollywood magic makes things that seem impossible look easy. It can create medical miracles, reverse time, and alter memory. It even seems to preserve the life and looks of the celebrities that draw people to the big screen. Skeptics may blame smooth, glowing skin on an excellent makeup artist, but if you ask the celebrities themselves, life off-camera can be just as glamorous. Celebrities are able to afford extensive surgeries and treatments to keep them looking younger, but many of them will tell you that there are several natural tips that can be used to keep yourself looking amazing at any age.
It’s All About Hydration
To name names, Jennifer Aniston attributes her flawless skin to the amount of water she consumes every day. According to the stylish celebrity, drinking more water improves the condition of skin, nails, and hair. This isn’t just an opinion, either. There was a study in 2015 that used observations on two groups of women to determine the benefits of increased water consumption. The group of women who consumed an additional two liters of water of the other group had more hydrated skin and developed a more youthful glow.
Give Your Body a Break
Celebrities keep schedules, but for Christina Aguilera, getting at least eight hours of good sleep each night important to her youthful looks and high energy. The Center for Disease Control recommends a minimum number of eight hours a night for optimum health, and scientists have looked at the relationship between poor sleeping habits and dermatologic conditions. The results of too little sleep lead to noticeable discoloration around the eyes or puffy eyelids. It can cause you to look older and your skin isn’t able to recover from damage or irritations as effectively.
Don’t Indulge Bad Habits
It used to be trendy to smoke cigarettes, but in addition to the education that smoking can lead to lung cancers and other health conditions, many celebrities choose not to smoke because it affects the aging process. Smoking can lead to discoloration in teeth and can alter the tone of your voices. However, the internal effects of the chemicals found in both nicotine and alcohol had been shown to alter an individual’s DNA and cause premature aging, as well as increased risk of certain cancers and medical conditions. The body has a hard enough overcoming the slowed production of the human growth hormone (which is responsible for maintaining energy levels, muscle and bone mass, and libido) throughout aging, without the added stress of a DNA alteration. Peptide therapies in anti-aging protocols have been successfully used for restoring HGH production, but overcoming broken DNA is an uphill battle. Other bad habits that celebrities avoid include going to bed with makeup on, forgetting to put on sunscreen, heavy alcohol consumption, and a diet loaded with sweets.
Learn to Focus on Priorities
The life you lead can impact your aging journey, and as Gabrielle Union claims, stress causes wrinkles and a frazzled body. Although this is just her tip on how to avoid succumbing to the effects of aging, stress can put your body out-of-whack and cause digestive problems, mental health concerns with depression or anxiety, and it can lower your immune system. It might not seem to be a big deal, but putting your body in a state of ongoing stress will cause long-term damage to multiple areas of the body. Digestive issues could prevent you from getting the nutrition you need, while depression might keep you from getting enough sleep or from taking part in physical activities. This may be a round-about effect of stress, but if you are wanting to fight off the damage of aging, you need to make changes in many different areas.
Stick to a Balanced Diet
Christie Brinkley is well-known for her amazing looks, and when asked about the key to defying aging, she claims it about the foods you eat. Though Christie may be a vegetarian, health experts agree that the antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and the other nutritional components of fruits and vegetables are necessary for a successful bout with aging. The more colorful your diet is, the better the balance of what your body needs. Aging isn’t just about the wrinkles in your skin or the silver-tone in your hair. Your bodily organs, all the way down to the cellular level, need the right nutrition in order to maintain healthy, productive functioning.
There are many things celebrities do to stay looking young that you may not have the luxury of affording, but don’t let that discourage you. HGH protocols are very affordable, as well as collagen or peptide-infused applications. Lifestyle changes with meal planning, skincare routines, reduced stress, and higher activity levels can also help keep you looking and feeling great as you age.
