With the stressful life that we lead, the effect mainly falls on our body; more specifically, on the way we look. Our skin and face age quicker than we do chronologically, and it is mostly because of the unhealthy way we live. For women, using too much makeup regularly can take away the natural health of their faces; for men, ageing can be rapid and before time if they worry too much. Add stress and sleep deprivation to the list, and we are gradually losing our health and looks. 

Looking good and staying fit, feeling young on the inside and living our life to the full potential – these are all possible when we know the right rules to follow. To live your life the most natural way possible, that’s how you can make sure you don’t age before its time, and that you can look as young as you feel inside. 

Here are 10 ways to live life to the fullest, and emerge in your youngest, freshest self. 

Trick#1:Exercise Regularly 

If you want to live well, you have to exercise regularly. It doesn’t mean that you have to spend hours building your muscles or go to the gym every day, as long as you find some form of exercise you are comfortable with. It could be running, walking or jogging, or something light that keeps you active every day. 

Trick#2:Eat Well

To eat well doesn’t mean that you have to be on a diet for the rest of your life; rather, it means that you need to eat only what’s good for. It also means to avoid carbohydrates and processed food as much as you can, and fill your diet with lean protein, vegetables, leafy greens and fruits. Carbohydrates don’t just add to our weight, they weaken our metabolism and make us slower. Our body ages faster when we eat unhealthy processed food, packaged food, carbohydrate-enriched food and fast food. 

Trick#3:Try Some Superfood 

There is some special food that can actually help you look younger. Extra virgin olive oil for one, is an ingredient that doesn’t just make you look younger, but also help prevent a number of common heart-related diseases. 

Fish that are especially rich in omega-3 fatty acids, dark chocolates, vegetables that contain beta carotene and vitamin C (i.e. pumpkin, carrots, sweet potatoes, broccoli and bell peppers), pomegranates and tomatoes, avocados, flaxseeds, bone broth, etc. are  considered superfood when it comes to anti-ageing and healthy skin. 

Trick#4:Try Green Tea  

Green tea is extremely good for your skin; regular consumption of green tea instead of any other form of caffeine, can do wonders for your skin. Green tea is also usually recommended in weight-loss diets, since the antioxidants in this tea helps metabolism and helps us maintain our weight. 

Another kind of anti-oxidant present in green tea, known as polyphenols, can actually protect collagen, which is the main protein in our skin. The more collagen we have, the healthier our skin and the younger we look. 

Trick#5:Take Breaks 

If you have a stressful career or live a hectic life, it is very important that you take breaks. Stress is one of the main reasons that our body and our skin age rapidly, and there’s no better way to fight stress than by taking some time out. It can be a long vacation every year, or a long weekend every month, or some time away from work; the main factor is that you give yourself some free time when you don’t have to worry about anything regarding work or any other responsibility that you have. 

Trick#6:Spend Time with Loved Ones  

It has been found from numerous scientific researches that people who are in a secure and committed relationship (i.e. people in love) are happier and look younger than people who are single. Spending time with someone you love can actually make you look and feel younger, even when you are stressed at work. 

The same rule applies for your family members. Parents with a healthy relationship to their children, or siblings who get along with each other, or children who have a good relationship with their parents look younger on the outside and feel much happier on the inside. 

Trick#7:Do Yoga  

Yoga isn’t just good for your body, but also for your skin and face. Yoga gives you more energy, an improved mood, relieves you of stress, great flexibility, an active body, and most importantly, a glow on your skin. Everyone who seriously practices yoga regularly has not just an amazing body to show, but also perfect skin and graceful beauty. 

Trick#8:Use Skin Supplements  

To look younger and have better skin, you might need some outside help as well. Proper skincare is a huge part in looking younger; you need to invest in a creams and supplements from a good brand if you want your skin to look healthy. Vitamin supplements every day can also help, as can some very good toners, face wash liquids and creams. 

Trick#9:Feel Young On the Inside 

Above all, it is important that you try and feel younger on the inside. No matter how old you are in reality, you need to imagine yourself to be young at mind. A stress-free, worry-free, younger mindset will make you joyful and happy, and it will take years out of your face.  The happier you are on the inside, the younger you can look on the outside – that’s guaranteed. 

When it comes to looking fresher and younger, the most natural way are the best. Eating a balanced diet and exercising regularly, living a stress-free life and believing you are young on the inside is what’s going to make you fresher-looking, and years younger than you actually are.
