Ageing happens to us all, and it’s far better than the alternative, so really we should think more positively about it; we’re privileged and even lucky to have reached a stage where we are able to age and grow older, looking back at everything we have done in our lives and enjoying the more relaxed pace of live as we age.

Yet there are still issues with ageing that many people don’t enjoy, and they will often try to slow down the ageing process. There is nothing inherently wrong with this, it is your choice, but ideally you should go about it in as natural a way as possible to keep yourself healthy and happy. Here are some things you can try.

Give Up Sugar

Many things change as we get older. You might find you need glasses or that your hair turns grey, or that you develop wrinkles. You might even find that your mobility changes, and you are less able to do the things you could before. It’s only natural that some people want to prevent this from happening where possible.

Sugar is something that can be an issue, and giving it up is a great place to start. Too much sugar is bad for a number of reasons, and one of the least well known reasons is that it can speed up the ageing process. This is because sugar, and in particular glucose and fructose, will affect how well the collagen in your skin is able to reproduce, and when that happens the elasticity disappears. This is how wrinkles form. So, by giving up sugar, your skin should stay looking more youthful for longer.

Go Gluten Free

Gluten is another item that many people have in their daily diets that can affect the ageing process negatively. Gluten prevents certain minerals from being completely absorbed into the body, including those that help keep our skin looking youthful.

Switching to gluten free products means your skin can finally get the health and freshness that it needs, and you will look much younger. Just changing from standard bread to gluten free might be enough (and it’s a doubly good idea when you consider that bread is full of sugar which, as we’ve seen, isn’t good for your skin either).

Drink More Water

Drinking more water is something we should all easily be able to do, and it’s something we should all be doing. Not only is it one of the best things we can do for our health, it’s also something that will naturally slow down the signs of ageing.

Chronic dehydration is something that will definitely cause people to age more quickly. The problem is, although you might assume you would know you were suffering from this, the longer it goes on, the less noticeable it is, and a vast proportion of the population is suffering from chronic dehydration without knowing it.

We should be drinking around two litres of water each day, and this will flush toxins from our bodies and keep us feeling good. Water also restores any lost elasticity in the skin, so after drinking a good amount of water, your skin will look plumper, less lined, and more youthful. By drinking more water you are helping yourself in many different ways.
