The best route to natural beauty and healthy skin is to take care of what you have.

Here areĀ  5 beauty tips for keeping your skin fresh and healthy:

1. Drink plenty of water

You need to hydrate and flush your body free of toxins.

Make sure you are drinking at least 8 glasses a day.

2. The best cure for wrinkles is to never have them in the first place

Stand up straight, stop squinting and frowning.

3. Balanced diet

Knowing how and what to eat, can make a huge difference in how you feel. Improper eating habits can cause depression, weight gain, illness and overall lethargy.

Weight gain causes your skin to stretch.

As you get older, it loses its elasticity and you’re left with sagging skin.

The best solution to this is to maintain a proper weight.

A rule of thumb for eating habits are…don’t eat more calories than you consume.

Don’t go one single day without doing something physical for at least 30 minutes per day.

This can be three ten minute walks.

Or 30 minutes of vigorous aerobics, or 12 minutes of weight lifting and 18 minutes of walking.

4. Don’t worry, be happy

Happiness triggers the release of endorphins, which relax the cardiovascular system, and cytokines, which alert the immune system to abnormalities like cancer cells.

Here are a few quick tips for increasing joy, hope and optimism that will work no matter what your age:

Make a list of at least 50 great things that happen to you every day.

Laugh a lot. You’ll heal your body and your mind.

Discover a new challenge each month.

Try meditating for just five minutes each day.

5. Beauty is skin deep

True beauty begins from the inside out. Your body reflects your daily thoughts and attitude. Remember that getting older doesn’t have to mean getting old. Stay young in your mind and habits.
