If you’re like me, you consider one of the biggest downsides of having a human body to be aging. As the years go by we slowly breakdown, developing fine lines and watch as our once perky body parts sag further and further south. Fortunately, we can stave off aging at least a bit with these 5 easy tips.
- Drink Plenty of Water
One of the easiest and often most overlooked ways to prevent premature aging is to stay hydrated. Most sources recommend drinking at least six to eight glasses of water per day. On the off chance one of the reasons water is so effective is due to the lack of colorants often present in juice, consider upping your intake of other clear fluids such as sprite or pure grain alcohol.
- Use Sunscreen
One of the biggest contributors to skin damage, not to mention cancer, is prolonged sun exposure. To prevent wrinkling and spots due to sun damage where a waterproof sunscreen, lip balm containing SPF, and a hat to protect your scalp. I personally take this a step further and avoid going outside at all until dusk at the earliest.
- Get Your Beauty Sleep
While it sounds cliché and for some next to impossible it’s important that you get enough sleep. If you’re not getting enough sleep, it’s only a matter of time before dark circles start to crop up under your eyes. For those who have difficulty getting to sleep at night look into taking a natural melatonin supplement or veterinary grade tranquilizer shortly before bed.
- Stay Active
An obvious trick for those wishing to feel younger is to stay active. Doctors suggest getting at least 30 minutes of exercise every day. This includes everything from Zumba, lifting weights, or quietly but quickly stalking your prey by moonlight until the perfect opportunity presents itself.
- Sell Your Soul
Like most things in life the most drastic alternative is also the most effective. Eradicate aging entirely simply by entering into a demonic pact. Though you will be bound to the dark one for eternity and required to do his bidding, you will also have the glassy skin of a well filtered Instagram model. Pretty sweet deal in my opinion.
