Beauty tricks and anti-aging techniques have been traced back as far as ancient Egypt, Greece and India. These cultures went through great lengths to prevent aging and some methods are pretty obscure. Egyptians would bath in sodium bicarbonate (commonly known as baking soda today) to hydrate their skin and they also combined the substance with water to create the first ever night cream. The Greeks would use honey and olive oil to protect and moisturize their skin, and Indians stuck to their trusty trick of sandalwood, rosewater, and turmeric to prevent the annoyance of acne.
Sometimes the best way to avoid things like wrinkle lines and other signs of aging are actually really obvious. It’s been proven that water works wonders as hydration is known to keep skin looking fresh and hydrated. In addition to maintaining a healthy diet, exercise is the number one thing that experts say helps us to stay looking fit and young. Staying active and exercising regularly can keep years off your body, as well as get plenty of rest every night.
Those beauty tips all seem pretty simple, but what if it doesn’t help? There are countless expensive routes one can take to avoid appearing older, but there are also simple and rather cheap options as well. The best way is by applying moisturizer to your body daily to prevent dryness, but you can also kick it back to ancient times and use all natural products, such as avocado, honey, and egg whites as face masks.
These days, there are proven ways of fighting off age and impurities. Celebrities tend to find the best way to do so and they are great at promoting their best beauty tips. While some celebs try to stay as natural as possible as they age, others head towards surgeries, laser treatments, and injections to try to get rid of wrinkles and signs of getting older. Regardless of their approach to aging, we must admit that many of today’s stars look great – today as well as decades ago when they first rose to fame.
We may be a bit jealous at times that many women of Hollywood are able to look half their age, but it’s hard not to admire their dedication. They all seem to have found their own fountains of youth as they approach their ’60s and ’70s, and let’s all take a moment and roll our eyes because many of them still look just as amazing as they did in their ’20s.
