When do you think you really stop looking young? It is definitely not with the coming of grey hair on your head. You stop looking young when you start to have fine lines on your face, scars that won’t go, damage to the skin from sun tan, tired looking eyes etc. It is a given fact that we all have to age one day or the other. But aging before time is something no one wants. so, how to remove age from your face?
- Change your lifestyle to change your skin.
- Make positive changes in your diet for a beautiful looking skin.
So keeping in mind, we have compiled a list of some of the things, and routines you should do to remove age from your face. Read on to know what those things are.
We all know that dead skin on face makes our skin look dull and lose the entire glow. It is only with the help of exfoliation that the dead skin gets removed.
Exfoliation not only removes the unwanted dead skin cells but also improves blood circulation. The more the blood flows on your face, the better and healthier the glow.
So don’t lose that shine on your face and invest in a good exfoliator that suits your skin type.
If you don’t want to spend money on buying and stocking unnecessary items, then you can exfoliate with the help of lemon and sugar. Simply take half a lemon and sprinkle sugar on it and gently massage your face with it. Do it at least once a day.
Antioxidant Rich Diet
In very simple words, antioxidants stop the cells in your body from getting damaged. If you want to stay and look healthy and young, make sure you include antioxidant rich food items in your diet.
For example, grapes – whether red, blue or purple; they all are loaded with antioxidants, Vitamin C and Selenium. All this is not only good for your skin but also helps build your immunity against diseases.
More examples of foods rich in antioxidants are blueberries, red berries, walnuts, green leafy vegetables, sweet potatoes, carrots, green tea, whole grains etc. There is no dearth of food that helps you maintain that glow on your skin. SO make sure you are eating this at least once every day.
Use of makeup products harms the skin a lot. When we say use less makeup, it does not mean you stop using it at all. Instead, we mean to say that if you use it every day, reduce it to every other day at least.
When you put layers of makeup on your face, it stops your skin from getting the oxygen it needs. The result of this is you get a skin which is prone to acne and other scars. So try and avoid using makeup very often.
Slow Down on Sugar
It has been proven by research that the more sugar you intake, the duller your skin will start to look. The reason behind this is that sugar increased the blood sugar level which damages the elasticity of your skin. This leaves your skin looking dull and loose.
Sugar does not only mean granulated sugar that we all have at our homes. Slowing down on sugar means you will have to seriously cut down on your intake of sodas, cakes, candies etc.
All these items have more sugar in them than we can even imagine. So limit your intake of sugar and see a drastic change in both your health and your skin.

Limit Your Salt Intake
Salt and sugar are our biggest enemies. About 2600mg of salt is required by the body of a healthy adult for essential nerve and muscle function. But too much of salt in your diet can take away all the moisture from your skin making it look and feel dry and dull.
No matter the amount of water you drink, it will not replenish your skin unless and until you limit your salt intake. It not only causes damage to the skin but high amounts of salt also leads to various problems like bone-thinning, asthma, weight gain etc.
So you know what you have to do to look younger. These are mostly the changes in the lifestyle that are required from your side.
