4 Ways to Defy Your Age

1. Reduce the appearance of wrinkles
Make your own age-defying exfoliating face mask with honey, cinnamon and apple cider vinegar to get rid of dead skin, moisturize your face, and tighten skin so it doesn’t sag. As you age, you lose collagen in your skin, which creates wrinkles. Exfoliating the skin with this cinnamon paste helps bring in new collagen, leading to fewer wrinkles. The vinegar acts as a toner; keeping skin cells hydrated which prevents wrinkles as well.

Try it:
Use 1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and 1 tablespoon of honey to make a paste. Apply it to your face and leave on for 30 minutes every night and rinse. Then apply white vinegar toner using one part vinegar to one part water. Dip a cotton ball into the toner solution and rub all over face to help tighten skin.

2. Reduce the appearance of age spots

Rubbing a fresh lemon on your skin can help lighten existing brown age spots. The vitamin C in the lemon inhibits melatonin production and can make those brown marks on your skin look less noticeable or disappear completely! You should also protect your skin by covering up as much as possible when exposed to sunlight – sun damage can occur in as little as 15 minutes.

Try it:
Cut a lemon and rub it over your chest and hands in the morning, leave it on for 10 minutes, then shower to rinse it off. Whenever you’re in the sun, cover up! Try wearing gloves and a light scarf while driving to prevent sun damage on your chest and hands.

3. Revive dull, limp hair

The secret to youthful hair is part diet and part massage! Defy your age by eating millet as part of your breakfast. The millet is a good source of protein, which can prevent hair loss. Use argan oil and massage it into your scalp and throughout your hair. Doing this stimulates circulation, coats the hair shaft, and restores elasticity and texture to your hair.

Try it:
Eat millet in the morning for breakfast, most days of the week. Massage argan oil into your scalp and through your hair every few days for 10 minutes at a time for hair that looks healthy, young and shiny.

4. Get a tight body that looks years younger
Strength training with weights for as little as an hour or two a week is the secret to a fit, youthful figure!

Try it:
Join a gym that offers fun exercise classes that you can attend each week. You’ll build lean muscle tone and reduce fat, looking smaller and fitter in your favorite clothes!
