Are you looking for useful natural anti aging tips? Some that you can try today and actually see a difference in your skin?
These 11 anti aging tips don't waste your time by repeating 'get 8 hours of sleep' and 'eat more blueberries'.... Instead, they include some of the best actionable tips to naturally, safely and easily improve the look and feel of your skin. (Tip #7 and 8 are my favorite - talk about a noticeable difference!)
Add them to your routine, and enjoy the results! (But don't forget your sleep and blueberries... :)
A do-it-yourself facial massage truly has the power to give you an instant facelift. By concentrating on a few moves that drain lymph and provide 'lift' to your skin, you might be surprised at the results!
The change is temporary, at least in the beginning. But, if done daily these moves will provide lasting results.
You can do them every evening as part of your nightly routine, or every morning to give you a 'lift' for the day - once you have the moves down it becomes easy. You really can 'lift' your eyebrows and cheeks with the right moves...
If there is one supplement you should be taking to get supple, plump, hydrated skin, fish oil/Omega 3 is it.
Omega 3 fatty acids strengthen cell membranes, which ensures they perform their vital functions such as nutrient uptake, waste removal and ability to hold water optimally.
Supplements can take from 1 - 3 months to show a noticeable difference. But don't let this deter you from adding them to your routine - that time is going to pass anyway!
*Note: If you find 2 or 3 large pills hard to swallow, taking it in liquid form can be easier.
This natural anti aging tip is repeated so much it probably has you rolling your eyes. BUT if you get it right it truly can make a difference!
It isn't quite as simple as 'drink 8 glasses a day'. A dramatic increase is usually needed, along with a couple of important points.
Drinking enough water can provide noticeable results to your skin by improving tone, color, texture and even refining the contours of your face - within 3 - 5 days. It looks brighter and more radiant from within.
Increase your intake to a minimum 3 liters a day. See this article for important details >
Want to wake up with younger looking skin? It's simple: Use a humidifier in your bedroom at night.
You will wake up with less fine lines, and plumper, more hydrated looking skin. No need for a big fancy one, a small bedside humidifier (such as this one from Amazon.com) will do wonders.
Try it - you might be pleasantly surprised at how you can improve your skin while you sleep!
The humble egg white face mask tightens skin, refines pores and brightens your complexion.
It's effects are temporary, but when it's this easy and cheap - who cares?! You can use it a few times a week no problem (as long as it is ok for your skin).
Here's how to use an egg white face mask:
Enjoy your tighter looking skin! Yes, it really is that simple.
A lot of the aging process comes from inflammation -signs of which include uneven tone, wrinkles, saggy skin, breakouts...
Decreasing inflammation can obviously have a big impact on the overall look of your skin.
Here is a simple natural daily addition that will help do just that:
Turmeric is a natural anti inflammatory (plus has powerful anti-oxidant properties). Olive oil is another skin saver in its own right, while its good fats allow the turmeric to be absorbed by your body.
Try it. A small, simple step in the morning to start your day off right.
Tired of your chin hiding behind a 'soft focus'? Does your skin look puffy/saggy, or does it feel uncomfortable?
You might be dealing with water retention - and by reducing this you can make a truly dramatic difference to your appearance. Skin will look more toned and smoothed, and your cheek bones may just reappear!
What can you do to naturally help decrease water retention?
First thing every morning (before your turmeric mouthful!), drink this:
Depending on your preferences you might prefer more water, or find the hotter it is the easier it is to drink. Experiment to find what works, but just do it! (Bonus: this also seriously helps with cellulite, and who doesn't want that?!)
*Extra water retention reducing tips:
This easy mask shows instant results. You might be seriously surprised at the difference you see in the mirror. It really is powerful:
Do you drink coffee in the morning? Good....
Everyone knows that moisturizer is important. But who says you only have to apply it twice a day?
Take a tip from the eternal Joan Collins, and apply moisturizer constantly. She apparently keeps a jar beside each basin to apply it as much as possible when she is at home. Her skin is truly fantastic so that's a tip worth listening to!
*Modification for us 'mere mortals': a jar by every basin may be a bit excessive. So try this instead:

If your chest and/or neck muscles are tight, they will pull down on your facial muscles. This causes your face to 'drop', will make you look less relaxed (and thus less 'youthful') and it also constricts nutrient/oxygen flow.
This is often a completely overlooked skin care tip, yet it is one that can make a huge difference. Keep those muscles loose:
A natural anti aging tips list wouldn't be complete without some mention of diet! You know you have to eat 'healthy' so let's not bother with that.
Instead, make sure you are getting enough proteins and good fats. Ever seen someone who eats a ton of vegetables but not much else (or mostly carbs and not much else... basically someone who doesn't eat enough protein)? Usually, their skin isn't tight or toned or healthy...
Protein is vital as it supplies the amino acids which are the building blocks for your entire body - from blood cells to tissue. These amino acids have to be eaten as they are not made by the body.
Ensure you are getting adequate complete protein on a daily basis - fish, lean meat, milk, eggs etc.
Extra benefits to eating enough protein are less cravings, better energy, stronger hair and nails... the list goes on.
Some of the best ingredients to use in the anti aging skin care fight are Alpha Hydroxy Acids. These dissolve dead skin cells and penetrate the skin, increasing healthy cell turn over, increasing radiance, softness, clarity and reducing fine lines and age spots.
Glycolic Acid is the most effective, and is easy to use on a consistent basis with the right product. A simple and highly effective way to improve the look and health of your skin.

You know how important this one is. But did you know you can actually stop accelerated aging in its tracks if you are diligent about protecting your skin from the sun from now on. Several prominent dermatologists even say you can reverse the sun's aging if done properly.
From now on apply enough and apply it frequently. Moisturizers and foundations that include a sunscreen can be handy, but you generally aren't applying these in adequate amounts to really get the sun protection.
You can still use them of course - but I highly recommend also using a simple sunscreen-only product as well (Neutrogena have good facial sunblocks).
Another important ingredient in getting youthful skin is retinol. Vitamin A is an FDA approved wrinkle treatment! And retinol is the strongest form of it available over the counter.
Using it as a night cream is the easiest and best way to get the benefits. Consistent use will improve your skin's tone, plumpness, pore size and thickness.
