Natural Anti-Aging Remedies 

Anti-aging remedies are all over the market nowadays. Let’s all face it; we don’t want to look our age. We want to look 5-10 years younger than we really are. It just makes us more physically attractive that way. Much as anti-aging creams and lotions might work on some, it’s still a bit risky since we really don’t know what they put in there. There might even be harmful chemicals that would speed the aging process or make your body dependent on the stuff. The best anti-aging remedies? Natural ones. Straight from Mother Nature herself. 

How does anti-aging work? 

Sagging skin, wrinkles, lines, and the general look of aging is all because of how our cells regenerate. At some point, the regenerative process slows down with age. On top of that, the environment we live in contributes a lot to our aging process. Toxins and harmful chemicals that our body has to fight off take a toll on our bodies and impairs the regeneration process of our cells. The fresh air our skin needs for that youthful glow is blocked by all those buildings and the smog that come from cars and factories. The water we drink isn’t as fresh as it used to be. The food we eat isn’t as natural as it should be. All these contribute to aging, and it shows. A lot of anti-aging products don’t reverse anything. Our bodies will age no matter what we do. What anti-aging products really do is either slow the process down the best it could or make the signs of aging barely visible. This all helps a lot with our appearance and actually makes it seem like the aging process is stopped or reversed. But again, we don’t know what they put in that stuff. 

How do you prevent the signs of aging? 

A lot of fresh air will do not only your body wonders in the fight against aging, but will also do wonders for your skin. Routine exercise also helps a lot against aging, as we might all know, there are countless benefits to exercise. Particularly, exercise that involves a cardio workout. Running and swimming are at the top of the list for cardio exercises. 

Eating fiber rich foods help with getting rid of the toxins in our body, and a healthy dose of antioxidants won’t hurt either. The best antioxidant-rich food that Mother Nature can provide are berries. Add ½ cup to a cup of blueberries, raspberries, cranberries, blackberries, or strawberries to your everyday meals and you’ll get a ton of antioxidants that will help you fight aging. You can mix these berries with yogurt for that added boost to your digestive health. 

A lot of fruits might also help you with the fighting off the aging process. The lovely Salma Hayek swears by a fruit and vegetable cleanse as her way of keeping herself lovely and looking youthful. Fruits and veggies rich in Vitamin A and Vitamin C such as oranges, lemons, carrots, celery, guava, and a ton of other fruits will help with keeping yourself looking youthful. The fastest way to get these into your system? Pop them all in a blender and make yourself a nice, refreshing, vitamin-rich fruit and vegetable juice. 

To top it all off, a good amount of sleep is crucial to keeping yourself looking as good as 10 years ago. Scientific tests show that if you burn the midnight oil too often, your body does double the work that it normally does. That means your body ages twice faster. So make sure you get about 7-8 hours of sleep every day. Taking care of yourself is the best natural way to age.
