3. Do facial gymnastics to prevent wrinkles

Sport is in fashion and gymnastics for the face too. If we train the muscles of the rest of the body, why should we forget those of the face?
A few minutes a day of self-massage and facial movements are enough to strengthen the muscles and tissues of the face.
For example for a smooth forehead and toned eyelids try frowning, frowning, as if imitating a "pouting" face and count to 10. Then relax your face and raise your eyebrows opening your eyes wide. Repeat the whole cycle 10 times.

4. Nourish nutrition for younger looking skin for longer

When we talk about young, toned, radiant and beautiful skin, we certainly cannot forget the fundamental role played by a balanced diet, which includes good quality proteins, healthy fats, whole carbohydrates, raw fruit and vegetables, nuts and seeds.
Among the foods that certainly help our skin to stay young we find buckwheat, rich in rutin, the omega 3 found in oily fish and salmon, and the omega 6 present in dried fruit, especially walnuts.

5. Eliminate bad habits

Of course, if you smoke, you must stop immediately because the toxic substances contained in the cigarette enter the circulation and harm all organs, including the skin, which suddenly ages. By quitting smoking, your skin improves and in the first few weeks you will notice the difference.

Even tensions are the enemy of beauty and a toned and young skin, in fact they give us a hard, rigid and dull look. If avoiding them completely is not possible, you can however learn to manage them better and not be overwhelmed. How? With yoga , autogenic training, a relaxing hobby ... Find the technique that helps you the most and find serenity, inside and out.

Finally, we know that a nice tan is very popular, but the fact that we cannot overlook is that the sun ages a lot. If you want to avoid premature skin aging, expose yourself in moderation and in any case use adequate sun protection (even in the city), renewing them frequently, especially in the central hours of the day.
