Most of us have a deep-seated desire to always look younger. That is because when you have a fresh youthful look, lots of opportunities open up to you. Those are opportunities in your social life and sometimes even in your financial life. The opposite of looking younger is looking prematurely aged: and that is something that pretty much nobody wants.
The question that then comes up is on what practical steps one needs to take, in order to look younger naturally. These are, conversely, the natural steps that one needs to take, to avoid looking prematurely aged.
And in answer to that question, we have culled some 5 secret tips that can help you look younger naturally. Note that all these revolve around care of you skin and care of the hair. That is as it should be: for when people are trying to assess your age, the key things they look at are your skin and your hair. Therefore if you want to look younger naturally, your efforts need to be mostly focused on care of your skin and care of your hair.
Without further ado, if you want to look younger naturally, you should:
1. Be cleansing your skin frequently and properly
The accumulation of toxins and dead cells on your skin can easily make you look prematurely aged. Consequently, if you want to look younger naturally, you need to figure out a way of removing such toxins and dead cells on the skin. And the way to do so is through the use of a good skin cleanser. The cleanser you use needs to be one that is tough enough to remove the toxins and dead cells on the skin, yet not so harsh as to cause harm. At Shlazio, we have skin cleansers that meet this profile: including our Vitamin C Foaming Face Wash, our Salicylic Acid Face Wash and our Rosemary Face Wash. We also have an Apple Cider Vinegar Face Wash which can come in very handy at this cleansing purpose.
2. Create a consistent routine for moisturizing your skin
Long term skin dryness can lead to very noticeable premature aging. The skin dryness leads to formation of fine lines, which in due course turn into wrinkles – the main classic markers of aging... Thus if you want to look younger naturally, it is in your best interest to create a routine for moisturizing the skin. Indeed, one of the main differences between the people who look ‘younger than their age’ and those who look ‘older than their age’ tends to be in the fact that the latter don’t take skin moisturizing seriously. Thus in any discourse on the care of you skin, this aspect of moisturizing the skin has to be touched on. It is not enough to be moisturizing your skin once in a while. It is something you need to be doing on a routine basis. At Shlazio, we have products like our Shea Butter Body Lotion that can help with moisturizing your whole body.
3. Use skin care products that nourish your skin:
If your skin lacks certain nutrients, it is likely to start looking prematurely aged. That is because the lack of those nutrients hampers the skin’s natural regeneration process. Therefore one of the things you need to do, if want to look younger naturally, is make use of skin care products that provide your skin with nutrients it needs directly. An example of such a product is the Vitamin-C Foaming Face Wash that we offer at Shlazio, which also has an antioxidant effect and can help in warding off the effects of free radicals on your skin.
4. Use hair care products that nourish your hair:
As we said earlier, in trying to assess whether you look young or aged, people look at not only your skin but also your hair. Thus in a discourse on how to look younger naturally, this aspect on care of the hair is also critical. What you need then are hair care products that keep your hair well-nourished and with a full, youthful appearance. At Shlazio, we have hair care products which meet that profile – including our Argan Shampoo and our Argan Conditioner.
5. Adopt a healthier lifestyle
Some of the practical things you need to do in this regard include getting better quality and adequate sleep, minimizing the use of alcohol, drinking more water and eating less junk food. Whatever else you do with regard to care of you skin or care of the hair, you may not achieve full success if you neglect these lifestyle factors.
6. Avoid skin care products with harmful ingredients
The harmful ingredients in question here include the likes of parabens, SLS and formaldehyde. These can be very detrimental to the skin and hair in due course, making the user look prematurely aged. Thus it is in your best interest to be carefully reading through the lists of ingredients for the skin and hair care products you consider applying. If you find any of these ingredients, then that may not exactly be the best product for you – as someone who wants to look younger naturally.
(Thankfully, all the skin care and hair care products we offer at Shlazio are SLS-free, formaldehyde-free and parabens-free).
