Ever since the dawning of time, people have been trying to find the Fountain of Youth, or simply the Secret to eternal life. Even in the Epic of Gilgamesh there is the search for the cure for death, which only proves that the ancient peoples have been worried about the same thing as we are now, in the twenty-first century.
Our obsession with good and healthy looks is a normal thing – it means that we cherish life and would like to elongate it as much as we can.
However, even though we still have not found the cure for ageing, we sure are on a good way to finding it.
There are some things that can help us in that, such as daily skin nurture and treatments that can aid our intentions and make us look as fresh as if we are still in our twenties or thirties.
In the following paragraphs you will find out which treatments are the best and the healthiest.

Your skin needs daily routine – this is the only way to establish balance. Every day, we are faced with a lot of stress and anxiety that we simply forget to about ourselves in the process.
What your skin needs on a daily basis is the following: gentle cleaning, good toner and moisturiser. Never forget to remove make-up before bedtime, and start cleaning your face with mild soap and hot water. And finally, do not forget a good toner and moisturiser to give your skin enough water so that it does not get dry during the night.
Beauty sleep is also essential, so try to go to bed as early as 10 (or 11) o’clock PM. A grown person needs to sleep at least eight hours in order for the brain to function properly, but also to avoid the signs of premature ageing – such as black circles around your eyes.
Change your diet
If you have decided to do a treatment, you doctors will also recommend you change your diet. You have probably already known this, but for those who have not – food can help you grow older prematurely.
The solution to this problem is to introduce essential fatty acids which prevent inflammation that accelerates the creation of fine lines in your skin, as well as sagging skin and blotchiness. Food which contains these acids is salmon and tuna, but also various nuts, such as almond. (If you want to learn something more about the benefits of nuts, here is where you can find all the necessary information.)

And finally, maybe the best thing you can do for your skin is to avoid direct sun exposure. Sun rays are so strong that they aid ageing processes and can practically harm skin cells so that they lose their shape and elasticity before their time.
However, since we cannot avoid going out – because of our day jobs and many other things – we recommend you avoid direct sun exposure between 11:00 and 17:00, and to wear protection. The highest the SPF, the better. Use sunscreen with protective factor as high as 30, and protect your children with at least 50 SPF.
If you have problems with acne, or even deeper problems such as scars, wrinkles and stretch marks, you can always give your skin a microdermabrasion treatment which improves all kinds of spots on your skin, including acne- and age-related marks, no matter if they are sun-induced or caused by some other process.
And finally, it would not be bad if you would revive your tired and sluggish skin every once in a while with skin polishing facials to avoid cellular damage and avoid deep wrinkles. Beauty treatments are there only to help you, so why not use all their benefits in your advantage?
