Forever young stop aging and find the fountain of eternal youth, plastic surgery

Everyone is looking for their own version of the fountain of youth. Many opt for plastic or cosmetic surgery to rejuvenate their tired and saggy skin, or to give their body a boost with some toning and tightening. Popular procedures include facelifts, Botox injections or other facial fillers, breast lifts, and tummy tucks.

To help make the most of your cosmetic surgery, or if you just want to look younger without the cosmetic enhancement, adopt these seven simple habits to turn back the clock:

  1. Wear sunscreen every single day.

Slathering on sunscreen every day (SPF 30 or higher) is one of the most effective anti-aging tools there is, and one of the easiest and least inexpensive.

  1. Lotion up your hands.

The skin on your hands is very thin and delicate, and can be prone to sunspots and wrinkles if not careful. Your face may look like a million bucks, but if your hands are neglected, people will take notice. Apply sunscreen to hands daily as you would your face, and use a rich moisturizer at night.

  1. Exercise often.

Exercise promotes healthy circulation which creates a dewy glow on your skin. Regular exercise also wards off a plethora of serious medical conditions and helps keep your figure in fine form. Aim for at least 30 minutes daily.

  1. Limit sodium.

Sodium is dehydrating and can make you retain water, which may lead to a puffy appearance. Check nutrition labels carefully, and drink lots of water to replenish fluids after eating salty foods.

  1. Gorge on greens.

Adding a healthy helping of dark leafy greens to your daily diet does wonders for your skin. The vitamins and antioxidants add brightness to your complexion and also have a hydrating effect.

  1. Cut down on stress.

Eliminating as much stress as possible will benefit you not only mentally, but physically as well. Meditation, yoga, or journaling are good options for easing stress.

  1. Get your beauty sleep.

Sleep provides your body time to repair itself from the hardships of the day and leads to a more rejuvenated, rested look the next morning.
