Every woman desires to stay young and beautiful for a very long period of time, preferably – the whole life. There are many researches that were made in the industry of beauty and youth, so that scientists found some important “rules” that we should follow to stay attractive and beautiful for longer. They discovered that you mood, for example, has a great deal of influence on the way you look.

1. Don’t overeat, keep the same weight all the time.
One of my favourite actresses Christie Brinkley is the great example of woman who looks absolutely stunning and gorgeous, even though she is almost 60 now. It’s unbelievable! She shared one of the secrets of her beauty – maintain the same weight all the time.
Often people have a habit of eating 3 big meals a day, but when you desire to lose weight (or to stay thin), it’s better to appropriate right habits of eating – try to eat smaller portions, but more often than only 3 times a day, this way you will boost your metabolism and it will be a lot easier to maintain great figure. According to many scientific researches, the ideal way of eating is to eat about 5 or 6 times a day, but smaller portions, and when I say smaller, I mean it! The ideal portion size would be the one that enters into the palm of your hand. Another easy trick to avoid overeating is to drink one glass of water before or after you ate, depending on your preference. Water will fill in the space in your tummy and you will feel satisfied without overeating, and your body will stay very hydrated!

2. Always use sunscreen.
UV rays cause extremely big percentage of wrinkles and other signs of ageing. There are two types of sunscreen protection: physical and chemical-based SPFs with UVA and UVB protections. If your skin is sensitive, I would recommend to find sunscreen protection cream with natural minerals – zinc oxide or titanium dioxide. Pay special attention to protect your skin from sun damage when you go on holidays or if you live in a sunny country.

3) Exfoliate your skin regularly.
Exfoliation is one of the most important secrets of youthful appearance! It has many benefits: it’s the best way to keep your skin soft and glowing, it helps to keep your pores from clogging (keeps acne under control), helps with uneven skin tone, keeps lines and wrinkles in check…There are two types of exfoliators: chemical ones and physical ones. When you have sensitive skin – never use harsh or strong exfoliators because it can cause irritation and redness. Ask the specialist’s advise to find the best product that suits your skin type.
