As a modern woman, one of the things that you are going to be thinking about is how you can stop those pesky signs of age setting in. We all want to retain our youth for as long as possible, and that’s why you’re going to need to know some of these anti-ageing techniques that we’re going to talk about. Keep reading down below if you would like to find out more.
Anti ageing techniques
The first thing that you’re going to need to consider is keeping yourself fit. If you aren’t exercising regularly, you are more likely to age faster. We know that not everyone enjoys the prospect of exercise, but you don’t have to! We’re not suggesting that you hit the gym four times per week to complete a high intensity workout, although of course you can if you want. Instead, we suggest that you start with something small such as going for a half an hour walk each morning or each evening, depending on which fits best with your schedule. Do this everyday, and you are already on your way to keeping fit.
Once this becomes a habit and starts to feel easy enough you could lengthen the walk or, if you are short on time but still want to up the intensity, increase it to a jog and then a run. However, as you age you need to be mindful of aches and pains, sore joints and injuries and one of the most common pains that comes with increased stretching, walking and running is plantar fasciitis. If you do find that you start to suffer with things like plantar fasciitis it is not an indicator that you need to stop the exercising and revert to your old ways, instead you just need to listen to your body and protect it when necessary by wearing insoles that offer extra support, trainers that fit correctly and are appropriate for the type of exercising you are doing and ankle or knee supports if needed.
To make sure that you maintain this new level of exercise make sure you vary the activities and also have a rainy day option if running in the rain isn’t for you. You can add in things like swimming and yoga for full body work outs that are gentle on your joints.
Whatever you decide to introduce it’s important to remember that it is an increase on your [previously sedimentary lifestyle so staying at a low impact level is absolutely fine, because it is enough to keep yourself fit, as long as you are eating a healthy diet alongside it.
Skincare And Hydration
The second thing that you are going to need to do is make sure that you are staying hydrated. Your skin is one of the most important things to take care of here because this is where most signs of age are going to become evident. On average, you should be drinking around two litres of water per day. We know that it doesn’t sound manageable when it’s written like that, but try to break it down. Buy yourself a bottle of 500ml, and you just have to drink four of those in a 24 hour period. If three cups of coffee before 10am seems easy, then try replacing this with one cup of coffee, and one bottle of water. You will hit your target in no time, and you probably won’t even notice.
In order to keep your skin healthy, you are also going to need to get into a good skincare routine. There are a variety of products for different skin conditions, so if you know that you have a specific condition, do some research into the best products for you to use.
Regular Check Ups
It is important to attend all those regular check ups that busy women often put off. I am talking about the dentist, opticians and hearing tests. As we age these things can decline and in turn make us feel older so keeping on top of them can help with our confidence as well as the aging process. If you haven’t had a check up recently then get in touch with Specsavers, your local dentist and Moor Hearing and get them all booked in today.
Finally, you might want to consider the supplements that are available which could work to benefit your skin. As you get older, it’s fair to say that your skin changes in a variety of different ways. One of the biggest problems that you are likely going to face is a vitamin deficiency. If you’re not eating the right food, and you’re not getting enough sun, this could be causing your problems. Supplements are available in a variety of drug stores, but if you’re worried about which ones you need, head to your doctor and request a blood test, or take a multivitamin.
