Ageing is a beautiful part of life, there is no denying that. But there are so many external factors that can increase or accelerate the ageing process, which can really slow you down and negatively impact your mental well being. We will be specifically looking at the ageing skin, and what you can do to maintain a brighter more youthful complexion for much longer!

1. GET ENOUGH SLEEP

They call it beauty sleep for a reason. It sounds obvious, but humans need a minimum of 8 hours of sleep daily. Not 6 or 7 but exactly 8 hours. Read Matthew Walker’s Why we Sleep and you will be amazed at how this simple remedy of SLEEP can strengthen your mind, and keep you looking young, slim and healthy.

 

2 . REGULAR EXERCISE

Specifically a form of exercise that gets your heart rate up i.e. HITT. Cardio exercises like HITT actually help promote collagen synthesis in your skin. The increased flow of blood around the body, means greater oxygen being carried to our muscles and organs especially the skin. But you must avoid over training as this can load more stress on the body, and as we know higher cortisol levels create more free radicles in your body that begin to damage your cells.

3- INTERMITTENT FASTING

Simply put, ageing begins as DNA begins to wear down. When we restrict our calorie intake in this manner, we limit and restrict cellular damage, and thus maintain healthy DNA. Excessive calorie restriction long term is never a healthy or feasible option, so intermittent fasting will provide a safer and faster method of providing the same benefits. Fasting results in: a drop in insulin level, prevents oxidative stress on the body, allows cellular repair and fights inflammation.

 

4- FIX YOUR DIET

Certain foods can trigger off an inflammatory reaction in your body, that can in turn lead to oxidative stress. Medglo Clinic offers food intolerance tests, that test your blood sample against 200+ types of foods. This can help pin point what foods may be eliciting an immune response, allowing us to formulate a plan to eliminate/reduce or at least incorporate these safely in your diet.

Reduce sugar in your diet. Processed sugar is the culprit here! Sugar enters your bloodstream and through the process of glycation it attaches to proteins and starts to produce free radicles in your body that triggers oxidative stress . These Advanced Glycation end products (AGE’s) produced from consuming sugar, will make your elastin and collagen stiff and dry and allow the formation of lines and wrinkles.

It’s as simple as that. Your body is a temple, treat it with the respect it deserves. Fuel it well, move it when you need to, but give it a chance to also relax and recharge.
