3 Easy Ways to Slow Down the Signs of Aging

If you’re noticing that your skin is starting to sag and you’re worried about premature aging, you may need to rethink some of your habits. You may have to change your diet, for instance, or take steps to protect yourself from specific environmental stressors. You may also need to improve your skincare routine or start taking it more seriously if you have yet to really pay attention to your skin’s health. Let’s take a look at a few ways that you could reduce the signs of age.

Start Using a Skin Serum

Many people don’t use a skin serum or don’t really understand what one is and how it works. But it may be the one thing that will take you from having good skin to great skin. And, if you pick the right serum, you could significantly slow down your skin’s aging process.
You also can make your very own serum at home and save some money while having full control over what’s in it. You could make a nice serum by mixing a few drops of organic rosehip oil with aloe vera gel. You could apply a little bit of the serum right after cleaning and exfoliating. This mixture will penetrate the pores and deeply nourish your skin, and you might be surprised at how much tighter and more vibrant your skin could start to look after a few weeks.

Start Drinking Green Tea

What you put into your body will significantly affect how fast or how slow you age. One of the most important things you’ll need to start incorporating into your diet as you age is antioxidants, and green tea is one of the best sources of antioxidants on the planet. But what makes green tea so efficient in slowing down aging is that it contains a very special type of antioxidant called EGCG that has been shown to reduce cell turnover and prevent the appearance of wrinkles.

You can get the benefits of EGCG either by drinking green tea or applying it to your face after cleansing. If you want to apply it, it would be best to let a few bags of high-quality organic green tea soak in a little bit of water overnight to avoid heating it and destroying the antioxidants. Putting cold bags of green tea over your eyes when you sleep could also help reduce puffiness and prevent/reduce the appearance of crow’s feet.

Change Your Diet and Consider Intermittent Fasting

What you eat and drink can also make a huge difference to your skin. Alcohol, for instance, is one of the main contributors to premature aging, so consider stopping or reducing your consumption if you’re over the age of 40.

Now could also be a good time to try intermittent fasting. There have been several studies that have shown that intermittent fasting can not only prevent premature aging, but even reverse some of the signs of age. So, look into intermittent fasting if you haven’t already, and consider going on a prolonged fast for even more benefits.


These are all things that you could do right now if you want to reduce the signs of age and generally feel better. Try using all of these tips and focus on living as healthy as humanly possible.
