Aging is a natural process, but you that doesn’t mean you can’t slow the effects and improve your health in the process. Check out our top 5 choices for natural anti-aging products, most that you can try today!
Anti-inflammatories are a proven tool to combat aging. They can improve heart and immune functions and keep your skin supple. Additionally, a study of 250 patients in 2006 showed improved joint pain from taking 1200-2400 mg of omega-3 daily with no side effects.
We’ve found the easiest way to get your daily dose of omega-3 is from fish oil supplements. It can be challenging to regularly eat enough fish, flax seeds, or walnuts (common sources of omega-3). It’s best to find a supplement that has both EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids as each has their unique benefit.
Almonds are not only tasty, but they can be good for your skin as well. They have a range of nutrients, such as vitamin E, folic acid, zinc, and iron. Zinc and vitamin E are especially good for your skin. When zinc is applied to your skin it provides a natural sun screen and helps lock in moisture. While vitamin E is well known to be good for your skin.
One way to apply almond’s benefits to your skin is to soak the almonds in milk over night, then grind the almonds into a paste and apply to your skin. We suggest starting with a small area and leaving it on for 15 minutes before washing off. Some users have reported mild irritation but it generally well received. After testing, apply to your skin for 30 minutes before washing off.
Now, if that seems like quite a bit of work there are still options available. There are a few products on the market that we recommend, such as Weleda’s and Burt’s Bees. You can find both of these on Amazon or your local beauty store.
Olive oil is a natural oil that is effective in moisturizing and tightening pores. The healthy fatty acids are absorbed by your skin keeps it hydrated. It is also a powerful source of vitamins and minerals, such as vitamins A and E, that help to revitalize your skin.
To use olive oil as an anti-aging treatment, place a few drops of the oil in your hands and apply it to your clean face in a circular motion. Massage the oil into the skin at least 5 minutes before going to sleep so it has time to soak in. Wash the olive oil off in the morning.
Honey contains superior antibacterial, probiotic, and healing properties and is super nourishing and hydrating. It’s one of the more miracle products of nature. It can help with dry skin, both moisturizing and preventing further moisture loss.
Before you try honey, make sure you get unfiltered honey. All natural or organic does NOT mean unfiltered. Filtering removes some of the antioxidants and nutrients, so make sure you find unfiltered honey before starting. As with most products, it’s important to clean your skin first. Use a teaspoon of honey and apply to your skin for 20 minutes before rinsing off.
Like honey, bananas are a cost effective anti-aging treatment. They contain vitamin B, potassium, vitamin C and vitamin E. Bananas can moisturize your skin while improving your collagen production and skin elasticity.
Bananas are the easiest of our natural remedies to use. Make a paste from a ripe banana and apply on your clean face. Let it sit for half an hour before washing it off with warm water. Depending on the size of your bananas, you might need 2 for each application
These natural products are most effective when you’re drinking plenty of water and getting plenty of rest. If you focus on being healthy inside and out you’ll be looking young well into your golden years. And remember, it’s never too late to start!
