Look Younger. Feel Younger. Save A Fortune

There’s no denying it. We live in a society that’s obsessed with youth. While many cultures treat age as something to be respected and revered, it seems that most western societies today treat age like an affliction that must be kept at bay at all costs. Perhaps it’s that nagging fear that the best years of our lives may be behind us (they’re not) or the universal fear of our own mortality that motivates us, but there’s no denying that we as a society are feeding an anti aging market that’s currently worth hundreds of billions. The truth, however is that the fountain of youth cannot be bottled, packaged and resold. There’s no one product that can reverse the aging effects of our lifestyle choices, although it’s safe to say that some products are better informed purchases than others (more on that shortly). Here we’ll look at healthy and natural ways in which we can all look and feel younger… And even save a little money along the way.

3 Tips To Know Before Dyeing Your Hair

A new year is a great time to freshen up or change your look. Maybe you just need a new cut or style, or maybe you could try a new color! Choosing the right color isn’t easy, but using these three tips can ensure you get the perfect look.

  1. Preparing your hair

Don’t shampoo beforehand! Shampooing can strip your scalp of its natural protective oils, leaving it prone to possible sensitivity. Try a hair mask the day before your application to deep condition your hair, giving your locks the nourishment it needs. Apply to wet hair after cleaning and leave on for 8-10 minutes or longer, depending on deeply distressed hair, then rinse completely.

Protecting Your Youth

Staying youthful might not always seem like the easiest things to do. For one, you’ll get to a point in your life where you just can’t stop it. But what you can do is make sure protecting it as much as you can. Showing signs of age doesn’t always mean the usual suspects of wrinkles etc. it is how you see yourself and how you act. The younger you are in the mind, the younger you’re likely to feel on the outside. But at the same time there are things you can do to protect the physical beauty side of things, and this is where we’re here to help you. If you want to protect your youth inside and out, then read on to find out more.

The Inside

What you’re doing to the inside of your body will show on the outside. So let’s start with what you’re actually putting into your body food and drink wise. Alcohol has been known to speed up the aging process. Having a cheeky glass of wine or two each weekend isn’t going to do much. But if you’re tucking into a glass or two every night, it’s going to start showing. When you drink you are depleting your body of vitamin A. Vitamin A is full of antioxidants which is vital for keeping the skin looking young and youthful. Alcohol misuse also leads to weight gain which can make you appear to look older than you actually are. Your skin will become greasier, be prone to breakouts, and it’s just all around damaging for your health. If you want to try and keep as youthful as possible in terms of the liquids you can put into your body, then water needs to become your new best friend. It helps to keep the skin hydrated, subtle, and it’s good for your body in so many other ways. Dehydrated skin is more prone to fine lines and wrinkles earlier on in life. They recommend you should drink around 2 liters of water each day. If you find water boring or don’t particularly like the taste, then mix it with some squash or find some sugar free flavored water.
