The Best Anti-Aging Tips You Will Ever Find
Happyyy Tuesday ladies!
Hopefully this subject caught your eye because there is SO much I have to say about this in terms of the anti-aging word and all the creams, botox shots, and fat freezing (I still cannot believe that is a real thing) and why the beauty industry has it all wrong.
Your beauty has and always will come from the inside out.
You may have radiated youth at 25 years old, but guaranteed if you don’t start to pay attention to the foods you are eating, the environment you’re exposing yourself to and your lifestyle, you will begin to damage with or without getting older with years.
Here’s what I mean by this:
Most women will attribute wrinkles, discolored, dry and saggy skin, cellulite, weight gain, a lessening of muscle tone and everything beauty related to the aging process and getting older.
This is false, you age with damage and not with years.
Yes, you will at ONE point be exposed to the above realization, but it’s coming earlier and earlier for women nowadays, have you noticed?
I’ve overheard women as early as 23 years old getting botox. And it scares me.
And this could partly be with the pressure of commercials and the beauty industry, Instagram ads convincing you that you need need to look younger, but a large part of it are the damaging foods and drinks that are being consumed.
And not to mention the damage that goes on within, causing health issues left and right that you would have never been exposed to if you lived back in the Titanic days.
And if you’ve been following me for awhile, you know I’m all about proactive beauty and it does not have to be expensive.
In fact, I would urge you to ditch the expensive skin care altogether if you aren’t eating healthy. It’s actually pointless and you could be saving your money:)
So what do you do if you’re trying to age gracefully and minimize as much damage as possible so you can glow for as long as you can?
Here are a couple of ways I make sure I minimize cellular damage to my body, not in any specific order of importance:
If you’re drinking alcohol, make sure to take NAC (google this one) along with activated charcoal before you go to bed. They will make sure the alcohol isn’t converted to the toxin that ages you and the activated charcoal will also bind to toxins and take it out of your system. Also do the same any time you eat at a restaurant you know uses unhealthy oils or isn’t organic.
Make sure you’re drinking 16oz of water right when you wake up mixed with some ancient sea salts and lemon juice. I use ½ tsp of this salt (I like the Redmond brand) and as much lemon juice as you can handle mixed into water. This replenishes your organs, acts like a condoctor of electricity between your nervous system and your brain (aka Highvibin'), and helps to detoxify your liver and since you’re dehydrated when you wake up, this gives your skin some love.
SLEEP. If you’re sleeping less than 7-8 hours you aren’t giving your cells the adequate time to rejuvenate. Sleep is where healing occurs and where your body repairs itself. Think of yourself as a recharging battery, without adequate time plugged in (sleeping) you won’t function at 100% and you’ll drain out before the day is over.
Completely remove grains, dairy, wheat, soy, corn and beans most days. I am definitely not telling you to never have these again, but all of these food cause inflammation to your body and damage. When I first learned this years ago, it took me awhile to completely remove them all. Now that I know how amazing I’m supposed to feel every single day, I don’t think twice about it. I’ll have a gluten free pizza once in a blue moon, but overall I stay away from all of the above.
Get your mind right. Do whatever you can to not stress out as this will raise cortisol in your body and make you age quicker. So those stressful situations you CAN avoid? Avoid them, like the plague. Not only will they age you, but you are under no obligation to surround yourself with bad vibes.
You’ve seen me at the infrared sauna and using red light therapy, and this is amazing for your skin and you can usually find centers who don’t charge an arm and a leg to use them. If you don't have a facility near you, dry brushing helps with aging and so does good ol’ exfoliation with a loofah in the shower then moisturizing (with toxin free lotion, of coarse) right after.
Which brings me to my last tip (you can find more of these tips in my detox program) and that is using non-toxic products in your home and on your body. Did you know that using toxic products actually ages you quicker? Those toxins accumulate in your liver and slow down the detoxification prcess that happens daily, putting stress on your cells. I always tell my coaching clients to gradually transition to natural products. Meaning the next time you run out of toothpaste, go natural. Next time you run out of shampoo, do the same. This way you aren’t throwing everything out at the same time, but if you DO do this, send me a picture and I will post it because this would be awesome:)
Every bite you take is either fighting disease or feeding it. It’s either causing inflammation (aging you quicker) or preventing it.
Know that you have the power! You have the choice to make positive and self-serving decisions today or continue to do things you know will damage you both mentally and physically in the long run.
And PS: As always, this email isn’t to scare you. I write the things I wish I heard when I was younger and struggling, and the things I wish I had as tools to help me heal faster.
If you are struggling with any of these, don’t forget I have the membership group I do live educational videos in most days to help keep you inspired, confident, and educating on all things health and wellness and I’d love to have you as part of the tribe <3
