(NC) Want flawless looks even as you get older? Here are the best tips to embrace the natural aging process and help you live your best life, no matter your age.
- Practice self-care
It can be hard to find time for yourself in a busy schedule, so practicing self-care is a must, even if it takes a little time out of your day. It’s about finding what works for you, whether thats a favourite face mask or short meditation session.
- Take care of your smile
Gums are the foundation to a healthy smile, so being proactive helps prevent any issues in the future. Since gum damage occurs gradually over time and we often dont notice its happening until its too late, its important to take preventative steps to protect your smile. Consider upgrading to the new Colgate Renewal Gum Revitalize toothpaste, which helps repair and reverse early gum issues.
- Make healthy food choices
Did you know gut health may play an important role in healthy aging? Nutritionists recommend focusing on good bacteria in the gut. Incorporating fermented foods like yogurt and kombucha can help promote good gut bacteria. Raw veggies and fruits like kale, spinach, kiwi and pomegranate are high in fibre and chock full of antioxidant vitamins A and C to help support gut health.
- Add vitamin C
Want brighter, tighter skin that glows? Vitamin C is your answer. This skincare staple helps reduce irregular pigmentation and skin inflammation while promoting healthy collagen production. But vitamin C rarely makes it into the skin on its own, so be sure to incorporate this magic ingredient into your routine through serums, face masks or moisturizers.
- Dont skip the sunscreen
Finally, wear sunscreen every day, rain or shine. Sunscreen is an important step in any beauty routine because it protects skin from damaging UV rays and helps to prevent premature aging.
