Be a vampire and stay young

Let me be honest. I know, it has been a while. As I was surfing the net finding stuff about how to keep your skin young, I found so many tips. But I guess some of it, is kinda hard to do, for me (because I hella lazy). So I sorted out a few which I think is the easiest. And I put it in my words and in the way I understand it. I’m not a good person to talk about skin, I’m not a dermatologist though.

But here’s the easiest way:

1. Massage

“Massaging your face daily will help boost the production of collagen, give skin a more plump appearance and help stimulate the lymph glands to promote clear skin,” says Nichola Joss, Sanctuary Spa Skincare Expert. I’ve did this for quite a lot of time. It is good for cracked and dried skin. Use olive oil. Not too much, just apply it thinly and massage for several minutes. Then rinse. Don’t leave it overnight, it can get very uncomfortable especially when the weather is hot. And your hair keep sticking of your face, you don’t want that.

 2. Tomato

Tomato is cheap and easy. Carrots and tomatoes contain betacarotene. This chemical stimulates skin cell growth and builds collagen. Betacarotene is also a good anti-aging food because it blocks antioxidants. I tried putting tomato mask on my face for 25 mins. It is awesome! You can feel the different in the next morning. I am not lying. Simply squash a slice of tomato (you don’t need 1 whole tomato) and spread it on your skin. They said tomato is good for anti-aging. Also it can make your skin fairer. (I know this from the research I made)

 3. Drink plenty of water

Adults should drink at least two litres of water per day. Boosting your fluids intake ensures that water is needed for skin cell formation. This is easier said than done. I got to say, I really hate frequent peeing. But water is too important. So drink! It is so easy and almost free. Good bye dried lips.

4. Get beauty sleep.

Everybody loves sleeping. It makes us happy. Get at least 6-7 hours of sleep every night can help you to feel and look a lot younger than your real age. This is easy! Go to bed early.

5. Lotion in bed

Apply lotion or olive oil or moisturizers just before bed. Because they said there will be better absorption of these products at night. So don’t be lazy. I use Vaseline petroleum jelly, it is good enough. Focus on your hands and neck and feet and the knees.

They are easy as pie, easy as meggie! Everyone wants to be beautiful inside and out. Make it as a routine. I will. I am so addicted to look younger these days. Remember, age is just a number. Pen off for now.
