Let me share some anti-aging tips that a lot of Koreans use to keep their beautiful young face.

Lifestyle

So the first one is, of course, lifestyle. The most important thing is to make sure that you apply some sunscreen lotion every two or three hours. I know that might sound hard, but please try to avoid adverse effects of smoking, drinking, lack of sleep, or caffeine.

Overeating can also cause aging, so it’s good to get in the habit of eating just a certain amount and making sure that when you feel the fullness in your stomach, you say “oh” and stop. And then you eat when you’re hungry again. So, have smaller meals, and you can eat more frequently.

Food

So, primarily, number two is food. Now, this is very important for anti-aging. Foods such as ginseng, anchovies, beans, fruits, vegetables are among the foods that Koreans eat to maintain their youthful appearance. Ginseng and beans act as antioxidants, which not only helps with just anti-aging, but it also helps with fatigue. So I regularly eat ginseng, I love it, but it’s so expensive. It makes me less tired, and it’s a fact.

Anchovies are also excellent in preventing aging because they remove the active oxygen that promotes the process of aging.

Fresh fruits and vegetables contain a lot of vitamin A, C, and E and also in antioxidants. They are always great for anti-aging. So, I always try to keep seasonal fruits or seasonal vegetables as my snack and take them around with me. Cabbage and broccoli are among the main and those two are my favorites too. These are also anti-aging foods that help to detox the impurities that it just starts deep within your body.

Surgical Procedures

This is very important too because Korea is also very well known for plastic surgery or surgical procedures. Lifting operations enhance collagen production, which improves the appearance of fine lines and fine wrinkles by increasing skin’s elasticity. But depending on the case, the places that you might have gotten the procedure, may not look even. If it gets worse, you might lose feeling in that place where you got the procedure. There may be side effects, so you always have to be extra careful. We recommend that you keep the health of your skin rather than leaning on artificial or surgical procedures.

Massage

The fourth one is massaging. Now, just simply by tapping your face, it stimulates the lymph nodes, which helps prevent aging thanks to the blood circulation. And also massage is helpful for the elimination of waste. Massaging muscles that are frequently used such as the V line, the jawline, or areas above and in between your eyebrows, or even your laugh lines and regions around your mouth help to prevent wrinkles.

Ingredients

Dermis, found under the skin, is protecting the epidermis. It’s crucial in the aging of the skin. Collagen, elastin, honey, ginseng, hyaluronic acid – are among some of the different ingredients and components that are beneficial for the dermis.

  • Collagen helps to maintain the skin’s elasticity;
  • Elastin keeps the skin’s resiliency;
  • Ginseng nourishes and also acts as an antioxidant;
  • Honey soothes;
  • Hyaluronic acid contributes to keeping that moisture.

So to prevent aging it’s essential that you keep on taking care of your skin, making sure that you keep on putting these ingredients on your face, and ensure that you are not without them.

These products with the ingredients are going to help with anti-aging.

Some issues occur during menopause because of changing the balance of estrogen to testosterone. Women tend to see extra hair in places they don’t want, or they see weight gain around the middle instead of around the hips and thighs.

Lifestyle Modifications

Lifestyle modifications are the first move in controlling symptoms of menopause.

Women who have extra weight and have BMI more than 30 have more chances to suffer from mild or hard hot flashes compared to women who have BMI less than 25 (that is considered normal). Weight loss can be helpful in some women. The other thing about this menopausal phase of life is women do find this is it a time where they began to gain weight even if they haven’t already during the rest of adulthood. Because as we age, our metabolic rate tends to decline. You are also in the phase of life where you might be exercising less. So women even if they don’t need weight loss during perimenopause they probably will find that they need to begin to do some things to avoid gaining weight.

Tobacco smoking enhances the periodicity and hardness of hot flashes. So you can recommend smoking cessation for those who smoke.

Exercise is also helpful in managing menopausal symptoms and a healthy diet. Stress reduction is another thing that can be useful for some women.

All these lifestyle modifications lower the symptoms of menopause; they increase a woman’s sense of welfare, and they reduce her risk of such illnesses like breast cancer, osteoporosis, and cardiovascular disease.

Once someone has gone through menopause their risk of developing cardiovascular disease, breast cancer, and osteoporosis all go up.

Lifestyle Modifications for Hot Flashes

There are some specific lifestyle changes for dealing with hot flashes. Many women can identify certain triggers such as alcohol, more burning spicy foods, caffeine, stress, hot drinks, or a warm environment. They can identify a specific trigger; then they can change and no longer be exposed to that trigger.

Another thing is staying cool. It particularly for a warm environment, especially at night leads to hot flashes. Wearing moisture-wicking fabrics, layering clothes, and bedclothes so that they can strip things off easily.

One big thing is trying to keep your head cool. Putting a cold pack or a chilled pillow under your regular pillow so that you can flip the pad back and forth and you always have a cool side.
