Discover the 5 Best Anti Aging Treatments

5 best anti aging treatments

Aging is the impact of time on our bodies that leads to cell, tissue and organ damage. Toxins, the UV radiation from sunlight, harmful foods, pollution and other toxins all take their toll on our bodies. We all want to look and feel younger, fresh and healthy, and although we cannot turn the clock back, we can try and slow the aging process by following few simple anti aging treatments.
Below are 5 best anti aging treatments that are natural and don’t involve going under the knife or other invasive medical procedures:

1. Sesame Oil

Beyond its culinary applications, sesame oil is also used in anti aging treatments to deliver health benefits to the skin. According to many studies, sesame oil is a powerful antioxidant due to a naturally occurring compound called sesamol. Antioxidants are important to skin health because they reduce free radicals, which are unstable molecules that can prematurely age the body and contribute to diseases. When our skin ages prematurely, it loses collagen and elastin, the substances that make skin strong, soft, firm and elastic. Other studies suggest that sesame oil may be effective in protecting against the sun’s harmful UV rays and skin cancer. It is therefore a good advise to message sesame oil all over your body first thing every morning. Sesame oil is gentle, affordable and pleasant-smelling, and as such it is a popular base for massage oils. The oil protects and moisturizes the skin due to its high absorption rate and high content of vitamin E, a vitamin commonly recommended for the treatment of a wide range of skin conditions.

2. Fish Oil

According to studies, taking enough of fish oil supplements appears to have enormous health benefits including dramatic anti aging effects. Fish oil has anti inflammatory benefits,  improves heart and immune functions and helps hair grow and skin look healthy. Specifically, taking these supplements regularly may lower the risk for a host of diseases associated with aging, including coronary heart disease, Type 2 diabetes, arthritis and even Alzheimer’s disease.

3. Limit white sugar consumption

Limiting consumption of processed sugar as well as other low-quality carb foods such as white bread, sugar, pastries, cookies and candy, which also break down to sugar in your body, will help you to slow aging process.
The reason is that when sugar breaks in the body it involves major molecular mechanisms that damage your body, and that leads to disease and aging. Limiting sugar in your diet is a well-known key to longevity. Fructose in particular is an extremely pro-inflammatory agent that speeds up the aging process. It also promotes the dangerous growth of fat cells around your vital organs and can cause to diabetes and heart disease. Sugar/fructose also increases your insulin and leptin levels and this is another major factor of premature aging and age-related chronic degenerative diseases such as heart disease. Limiting sugar consumption in your diet is therefore a good anti aging strategy.

4.  Antioxidants

Antioxidants, such as vitamins C and E, help fight free radicals that break down collagen and thus slowing aging process. A study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition in October 2007 found that people who ate foods rich in vitamin C had fewer wrinkles and less age-related dry skin than those whose diets contained only small amounts of the vitamin. Vitamin C also helps form collagen, which smooths fine lines and wrinkles. Vitamin C also seems to protect against UV sun rays, which can lead to freckles and a mottled complexion and does some repair and firming on the skin. Berries are packed with vitamin C as well as other nutrients, and are known to delay the aging process and to fight free radicals that damage our body. To learn more about the amazing healing properties of berries, have a look at my e-book The Healing Berry Guide. This e-book will teach you how to transform your health with berries.
Experts continue to argue whether antioxidants can prevent heart disease, but some of the evidence is highly persuasive. It is therefore a good idea to eat a lot of fruits and vegetables, which are full of vitamin C as well as other healthy nutrients, and consider taking C and E supplements. Experts say there are essentially no risks, but first check with your doctor. You can also read my article about the best ways to combine antioxidants in your daily diet.

5. Treat your eye area and your hands

Many people begin noticing signs of aging on their hands and around their eyes. It is advisable to treat the skin around the eyes separately as face creams can be too irritating and heavy, but products made for this delicate area work wonders for smoothing fine lines. You can also try this great homemade recipe for soothing tired eyes.
It’s also a good idea to start taking care of your hands with the same routine that you use to take care of your face. Every time you exfoliate or use a mask on your face, try to exfoliate or apply that same mask to your hands too. You can find here fantastic scrubs that you can easily make at home. They are suitable for the face and body as well.

    I would like to know if their is something that I can take for vaginal dryness during pms, and bladder infections if there is something for this also

    • Jenny says:

      If you want natural topical remedy for vaginal dryness, you can use vitamin E suppositories. They are sold over-the-counter in many health-food stores and online. Also Dr. Veil in his website recommends Vitamin E in other form: he recommends to apply 400 -800 IU per day of oil from a capsule of vitamin E directly to vaginal tissues at bedtime (You need to puncture the capsule to get the oil). He also mentions a caution note that some people may develop irritation as a reaction to this use of vitamin E. In this case refer to his other suggestion of helpful herbs in his article: http://www.drweil.com/drw/u/id/QAA153696

      As for bladder infection, drink plenty of fluids to help flush any bacteria out of the bladder (cranberry juice is also recommended).If the problem continues or worsen, go to see your doctor as you may need to receive antibiotics.

  4. Nancy K says:

    I am getting those awful age spots on my hands & I want them to go away. Anything homemade that will help? Thanks!

    • Jenny says:

      Hi Nancy, there are several home remedies to improve pigmentation, but it takes quite a while before you see results and the darker the spots the more difficult it is to get rid of it. The most popular applications are a mixture of honey, lemon juice and yogurt, aloe vera, potato slice, onion juice, diluted ACV with water, turmeric mixed with lemon juice, rubbing the inside of papaya peel, and the list goes on. If you see no improvement you may need a stronger application given by a dermatologist.

    My problem is am looking older in my chin and cheecks.what home remedies should I use?

    • Jenny says:

      Hi Fatma, do you look older in these areas because of hyper-pigmentation? if this is the case, there several topical applications you can use, but it takes quite a while before seeing results. Also the darker the pigmentation, the more difficult it is to improve it. Common homemade applications include a facial mask of honey + lemon juice + yogurt, aloe vera, onion juice, potato peel, vitamin E oil, turmeric mixed with lemon, diluted ACV with water, the inside of papaya peel, and the list goes on. If you have really dark pigmentation, you may need stronger application given by a dermatologist.

  6. Anna says:

    Nice and useful post but expected something simple and easily available at home. Can you suggest some please.

  7. grace garcia says:

    hello,

    im 34 and i have dark spot on my face, what is the best natural remedy for it? thanks god bless

    • Jenny says:

      There are quite a lot of home remedies to improve hyper-pigmentation, for example a mask containing equal parts of lemon juice, yogurt (or milk) and honey, applying pure aloe vera gel, applying a turmeric paste, see here – http://www.livestrong.com/article/355046-how-to-use-turmeric-to-lighten-skin/, applying raw potato, vitamin E oil, diluted ACV, oatmeal face mask with lemon juice – the issue is that the darker the spot, the harder it is to get rid of it. Also it takes quite a lot of time until you see results. If the dark spot is really dark, you will probably need stronger applications given by a dermatologist.

  8. Upon reading some of these comments such as pimples on the face, it reminded me of what my mother always said, I have never forgot this, you may think this is strange but so very true, mum told me always keep changing your pillow cases, when I am home in the UK, I only sleep on one side of my pillow once and then turn it over for the next night, then in the wash it will go, I never have spots, it works try it, hope this helps.
