Many moms say their kids have aged them. Lots of Moms will claim their kids are the reason they’ve got gray hairs or extra wrinkles. Of course, the kids have nothing to do with it really. But somewhere around the time we choose to have our children is the time we start to show those signs of aging. None of us want to look as old as we are. So what does it really take to look younger these days?
Many Moms make a lot of sacrifices for their kids. They’ll give up their time to help their children with school work or after school activities. But if you give up every minute you have, you won’t have the time to address the things that are bothering you about your appearance. And let’s face it. We all deserve a bit of me time!
Start with taking some time out for a good fitness program. Exercise works wonders to help tone the body. You can look slimmer and more shapely when you stay active and exercise regularly. One of the best things that exercise can do for you is that it removes that puffiness in the face. Baggy eyes can be a thing of the past if you regularly exercise. Getting your heart pumping flushes out all the toxins and water retention.
Drinking water instead of fizzy drinks or squash can also work wonders for your skin care. Reducing alcohol and other unhealthy beverages to a minimum will help reduce those dark circles we get even though we had enough sleep. Try increasing your water intake. Flushing out the everyday toxins can help clear the skin too.
Your diet can age you prematurely too. Sticking to just natural foods can work wonders for the condition of your skin. It could help you lose weight too. Avoid anything that has been refined or processed. You may feel more energetic, and you may even have better concentration if you improve your diet. Best of all, you’ll be filling your body with all those nutrients it needs for cells to regenerate.
There are also plenty of products on the market that are designed to smooth away those wrinkles. Most of us will dye our hair when it grays enough, so why not disguise the wrinkles on our faces? You can choose to use makeup or products like Instantly Ageless by Jeunesse to tackle these early signs of aging. A regular skin care routine will help keep your skin cleansed and moisturized too.
Posture starts to change from pregnancy. But as we age, and as we become tired Mommies, it can get much worse. This can give others the impression that you are older than you are. Correct your posture with daily strengthening exercises. You can try posture, or posture based dancing classes like ballet to get that great stance back.
Juggling family life and a career may be causing you some stress too. This can make you frown and have ‘worry lines’. Regularly pamper yourself and treat yourself to some relaxation to help you look younger than your years.
