With time passing at a rapid clip, some of us can become worried about the effects that it’s having on our bodies. Once you get past the age of 25 or so, adding another year to the tally ceases being exciting and reminds you that it’s all downhill from here on out.
But is it?
This article argues that you can add to your beauty as the years roll by. Here’s how to make 2021 your most beautiful year yet.
Start Applying Hyaluronic Acid Every Day
Is your skin starting to look a little worse for wear? If so, the solution could be something as simple as applying hyaluronic acid.
This serum is naturally occurring, but as your skin ages, it tends to lose it over time, causing it to look dull, and sometimes sunken.
Fortunately, you can now buy it in little vials and apply it via a pipette to your face, encouraging your skin to become supple again. Hyaluronic acid firms the skin and activates its internal collagen production, making it bouncier and more youthful.
Use A Retainer To Solve Crooked Teeth
Going to the dentist and getting a brace for cosmetic reasons is costly. But now you can get straighter teeth using a series of retainers.
The basic idea is simpler than you think. You take a mold of your teeth and then a company sends you a series of retainers in the post that encourage your teeth into a better position.
How long the process takes depends on the degree of crookedness. But you could complete the process before 2021 is over.
Start Eating Pomegranate
Pomegranate is one of the most celebrated beauty foods in the world, thanks to the unique effects it has on your epigenetics. Compounds in the plant have the unique ability to make your skin and complexion behave more youthfully, allowing you to recover some of your youth. Consuming pomegranate is best done in conjunction with other healthy diet choices.
Commit To Wearing SPF Every Day
Science has shown beyond reasonable doubt that UV light from the sun damages the skin. High-energy light rays occasionally bump molecules off strands of DNA in skin cells, forcing the body to commit resources to repair them.
When this happens, the skin starts to lose quality and no longer looks as good as it did when you remember. Remember, UV is invisible, so it can damage your skin even on a cloudy day.
Start Relaxing More
When it comes to beauty, relaxation is your secret weapon. People who feel generally content with life are more laid back and have a biochemistry that’s more conducive to feeling good. Levels of cortisol are lower, and they are less prone to disease.
Being relaxed isn’t the easiest thing in the world, but often it is a matter of priorities. What do you value more: the thing that’s causing you anxiety or your health and beauty?
Try spending time off away from your sources of stress. If the news media gets you down, switch it off. Take a break from work every few weeks to recharge.
