Top 10 Ways to Look Younger and Feel Healthier

Many people today are looking for that Fountain of Youth that Ponce de Leon tried to find all those hundreds of years ago. In many cases people go to some severe extremes in order to achieve a younger look. As well, billions of dollars are spent on surgical procedures, injections, pills, cosmetics, and clothes for that younger, more vibrant look. There are plenty of other ways that a person can not only look younger but feel healthier that do not cost anywhere near current costs. Here is a list of the top 10 ways to look younger and feel healthier without breaking the bank, or taking dangerous drugs and undergoing surgery.

1. Get More Sleep

Perhaps the most neglected health tip is that of getting more sleep. It is a fact that adults need at least 7 to 8 hours of sleep with deep cycles of REM sleep throughout. Staying up late, trying to watch that late movie, or staying up because of worry and stress takes its toll on a body. Get more sleep and you will begin to look better and have more energy.

2. Put Away Bad Habits

Another often neglected bit of advice that people hear and continue to dismiss is to put away bad habits. Yes, that means smoking, drinking in excess, and eating more junk food than good food. Like the importance of getting enough sleep, research has shown that smoking does nothing but kill. It damages the lungs so that the body can not get enough oxygen in the blood. Eating too much junk food simply slows the body because of the toxins and preservatives. And, drinking in excess causes liver failure and kidney problems. Simply said, put away these bad habits and being to feel better.

3. Get a Makeover

Besides putting away your bad habits, and getting some sleep, a complete makeover will shed the years from your face, and hopefully wardrobe, in a few short hours. While this may carry some cost to it, it is well worth it. Many people who have made a decision to get healthy and look younger say that a makeover made all the difference. It was their inspiration to continue on this chosen, often difficult, path.

4. Drink Lots of Water

There is a reason that the human body is 75% water. It needs it. Drinking approximately a gallon and a half of water a day will help your body work more efficiently in ridding itself of the built in toxins and wastes. Not only that, but water will give your skin a healthier, tighter look. A fully grown adult should drink at least 8 to 10 16 ounce glasses of water per day. More if the weather is hot and there is a lot of perspiration.

5. Whiten Your Teeth

There is nothing quite like being confident in your smile. When a person feels good about their smile they feel good about themselves. Using the new whitestrips that are put out by many different toothpaste manufacturers are a great way to help you not only look younger, but feel that much better about yourself.

6. Ride Your Bike

One of the problems with people today is that they depend too much on their car. If you live only a few miles away from work (and by few, we are talking less than 20) ride a bike back and forth. This will not only save a lot of money in gas, but also give you a fantastic start to each day. Riding a bike is not only good exercise, but enables endorphins and adrenaline to course through your body early in the morning. By doing so, your body now has a jump start to the day, you body is tight from the use, and your skin looks refreshed.

7. Wash Your Face

Giving your skin a younger look and healthy feel is another important part of a total body health regiment. One way to do that is to wash your face at least twice a day. Use a soft wash cloth with a mild soap. Once a week have an exfoliating treatment. This will get rid of the dead skin and give your face a great shine. Moisturize afterwards for the complete package.

8. Take Some Time For Yourself

Stress is not only going to make you look years older, and put your body in an unhealthy state, it can also kill you. The best way to combat stress is to simply take some time for yourself. Take up a new hobby, practice times of solitude and meditation, take a long bath, or just take a walk along a quiet trail. It does not matter what you do as long as it helps you to de-stress from a long week.

9. Use Good Sunscreen

Contrary to belief, staying in the sun getting that deep dark tan is not going to make you look any younger. In fact, it will damage your skin to the point where the sun spots are not removable. You can also contract skin cancer with too much exposure to the sun. Use an adequate sunscreen for your skin tone to keep the harmful rays away.

10. Enjoy Life

It has been revealed through research on thousands of people that quality of life has a lot to do with outlook on life. As you do the things that will help your body look younger and be healthier, you must also help your mind to enjoy your life. Take the steps in your life so that you are doing the things that make you happier, feel better, and want to be excited about the things you have.

While the rest of the world spends and spends their billions of dollars on procedures, medicines and expensive trinkets to make themselves look younger, you will be much farther ahead with these no-nonsense tips. Do yourself a favor and start implementing these top 10 ways to look younger and feel healthier today and in no time that’s exactly how you will feel.
