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