Not everyone looks like they came from the front page of a beauty magazine in their 40s. But everyone deserves to look the best version of themselves. And we know that anyone, with a little effort, can look at least as good as their younger version.
Physical changes are a sign of maturity. We must embrace them with pride. They come with a lot of toils we took but we do not necessarily have to look like it. We can use absolutely natural techniques and maintain a healthy regime to look youthful on the outside and feel energized on the inside.
Here are some tips you could take to give your cheeks a lift.
Facial Workout Routine
All muscles require exercise to retain their strength and elasticity, including the ones in the face. There are very simple but effective steps to work them out without breaking a sweat.
Smile broadly and hold it for 10 seconds. Then relax your cheeks and repeat 5 times.
Then, blow up your cheek with air and hold it for another 10 seconds. Then blow out, relax and repeat 5 times.
At last, massage your cheek muscles from outside to the center for a couple of minutes. Repeat this whole routine twice a day and you are good to go!
You must have heard that good food and a healthy and happy lifestyle reflects on your face. That is no myth. Reducing the consumption of toxins and properly flushing out the present toxins can give you the glow from the inside.
Consume detoxifying agents like water and natural fruit juices regularly. They will improve your digestive system, purify your blood, and add a natural sheen to your skin.
Avoid added sugar consumption and include more natural and fibrous food items to your diet. If you slim down, just keep up with the facial workout.
Natural Night Mask Pre-sleep Routine
Masks work on the skin at a very close contact level. They are the best options to treat skin issues. By choosing the correct ingredients one can ensure that they dish out the firmness our skin needs.
Avocado and honey mask– Blend half the flesh of an avocado with a couple of spoonfuls of honey. Use it as a mask for 15 minutes every night and wash it off with warm water. It will provide moisture to your skin and make it firmer.
Aloe vera and yogurt mask– Blend 2 tablespoons of aloe gel with 4 tablespoons of yogurt. Brush it on your skin and keep it on for 15-20 minutes. It will make your skin smooth and dewy. It will also make your wrinkles less prominent.
Hemoglobin contributes greatly to your skin health. Consume food items that contain Vitamin B12, Vitamin C, and other food items, which are rich in iron such as pumpkin seeds. They will help maintain your hemoglobin level and give you that youthful glow that you desire.
Add pumpkin seeds to your salads and increase the intake of vitamin C-rich fruits like kiwi, strawberries, guava, etc.
But most importantly, take a second every day to look into the mirror and smile, admire, and embrace the person inside.
