How to Slow Down Signs of Aging

Wrinkles are a sign of aging. Though this process cannot be eliminated, you can definitely do your best to avoid premature aging. Wrinkle, fine lines and crow’s feet are the common symptoms of aging and normally show up on your face, neck and arms.

To begin with you need to nourish your skin from the inside out to prevent premature aging. Drink plenty of water to keep your skin hydrated, flush out the toxins from your body and to maintain the elasticity of your skin. Eat foods that are high in water content as well. Eat foods in the raw state as far as possible as cooking them makes them lose most of the nutrients. Include carrots in you diet, in the juice form they are a quick remedy to the aging issue. Green leafy vegetable are high in protein and a god food for your skin as it supplies it with the required nutrients.

If you smoke or consume alcohol you must stop immediately. The hot blasts of smoke that are released on your skin kills the cells and causes patches and age spots, alcohol consumption leads to sagging skin.

Instead of using creams and lotions to cover up the signs of aging and prevent the formation of wrinkles, try using home made remedies as they are more effective and cost effective as well. Try bananas. Mash about half a banana till it forms a smooth creamy paste and apply it all over the skin on your face, neck and arms. Wash it off with warm water about half an hour later. This will leave your skin feeling soft and well moisturized. The banana face pack ensures delaying the aging process.

The posture and position that you are in when you sleep has a huge impact on your aging process. Sleeping on your side, where your face is against the pillow causes creases and lines to appear on your skin. Sleeping on your back, where your head is against the pillow helps to prevent wrinkles on your face; especially around your eyes.
