10 Natural Ways To Prevent And Slow Old Age by Healinicblog: 5:55pm On Oct 11, 2016
Hey People ! How Can You Prevent Old age looks and even at 70s you wil still look fresh and young.. please read below..




Be happy : The physical damage caused to your body by stress has only recently become appreciated by the scientific community. Fill your life with happiness and things you love and get rid of almost everything else. Practice stress relieving activities like meditation and exercise, and learn to appreciate joy when you find it. Happiness does a body good.


Eat vegetables : There is good evidence that oxidative damage caused by toxins and metabolism contributes to the aging process at a cellular level. Foods (but not supplements) high in antioxidants seem to protect us from oxidative stress and thereby making us look younger.


Avoid sugar : Try as much as possible to avoid excess sugar, as Sugar is a direct cause of aging and significantly reduces lifespan in organisms from yeast to primates. Not by a small amount either.



Moisturize :The appearance of your skin is largely dependent upon moisture. Help it out by using moisturizers to keep your skin soft and hydrated. Work with a professional to determine what type is best for you and quality enough.


Don’t raise your eyebrows : Credit my mother for teaching me this one, it has been a lifesaver. As a kid she used to warn me about raising my eyebrows, saying it would give me wrinkles and I’d regret it. I thought she was crazy, but still learned to express myself without much forehead crinkling. As a result I have far fewer forehead lines than some people years younger than me.


Sleep Well :For me the most important determinant of how I look (and feel) on a given day is how much sleep I get. Seven hours is my ideal, but everyone is different.



Eat fish : Some evidence suggests that the omega-3 fatty acids found in fish are particularly beneficial to the skin.


Wear sunscreen : Try as much as possible to avoid sun rays, but cases where you have to, never walk out the door without sunscreen on the face. UV radiation from the sun damages your skin and promotes aging.


Don’t smoke : Smoking is one of the easiest ways to look older than you really are and shorten your life at the same time. Avoid both primary and secondary smoke like the plague. For people already smoking try and quite if you really want to look young and healthier.


No foundation or powder makeup : Generally avoid putting any makeup directly onto the skin, but skipping the makeup does help maintain your skin’s hydration and elasticity. For ladies, wear makeup occasionally, maybe once or twice per week. But in general I will recommend mascara and lip gloss are enough for most situations..


Others Include Eat fruits, Takes Vitamin D, Eat Nuts,Beans etc..

Re: 10 Natural Ways To Prevent And Slow Old Age by TheSuperNerd(m): 4:23am On Oct 12, 2016
Nice one OP.... smiley

Here's a few more....

Engage in good physical exercise: The role of a good physical exercise in natural "anti-aging" looks is so vital. Take that 20mins walk or 10mins Jog. Engage in certain sporting activities and you'll find that in the long run, you look fitter and younger than the sedentary humans.

Also, it will give you a sharper mind as if you're young compared to ones who don't engage in physical exercise. It has been shown in brain research the connection between physical exercise and one's brainpower. smiley

A scientist (whose name I can't recall) once said, "If Exercise were a pill, we would take it daily for the rest of our lives....." So yep, it is a big deal indeed


Laugh more I know you discussed "Be happy" but I wanna emphasize on laughter. Laughter being described as the best medicine have been scientifically proven true. When one is in a state of euphoria and laughter results, Certain "feel good" hormones and chemical substances like Endorphins and Oxytocin and released into the body's system and help provide "calm and relieves stress". In the limbic system of the brain, one also get to be triggered into being emotionally motivated and uplifted when one laughs "genuinely" often.


So this is just a few, I wanna add to your beautiful write-up. Thumbs up. smiley

And yes, Sleep.... I don't wanna go into much details on sleep but I'll say this.

There's a super reason why we scientists say, "Go get your 'beauty' sleep" wink

Sleep is just that. Keeps you young and enables the right and "time-specific" secretions of the hormones responsible for battling stress (Cortisol), regulating water content (Aldosterone), regulating sugar content (Glucagon, Insulin, Growth hormone), and much much more.

So plsss, get some good sleep.

. And look 10 years younger like Orikinla Osinachi.

Look 10 Years Younger reveals how I became a vegetarian for 14 years and afterwards prefer eating fish to beef, mutton and pork.
No smoking.
Eat chocolate and enjoy red wine.
Finally, bear no bitterness and have a healthy sex life with fitness walks every day.

the most important one is not mentioned:

STOP BLEACHING!
STOP BLEACHING!!

Huge melanie presence in d skin reduces ageing.

People with high melanie concentration age slowly...example: ROBERT MUGABE

If only our govt wld give good governance such that basic amenities n infrastructure r in place, u'd see Nigerians lookin younger evryday.

But d economic suffering too much to d extent ppl worry as to whr n wen d next meal will com.
