Ageing is a natural process that we all need to go through. The problem with trying to combat the signs of ageing is that these signs are the result of past decisions coming back to haunt us. If you’re a smoker, using tanning beds or sunbathe without applying UV protection or you haven’t maintained a healthy diet, then there is a chance that you will exhibit these signs of ageing earlier than other people. There is no way that we can completely avoid them or keep them at bay. However, there are a few ways in which you can minimise their severity.

Hair

In old age, men and women will see their hair turn grey and some people will experience hair loss as well. To treat grey hair, one of the most obvious solutions is to dye it and if you want to keep it thick for as long as possible you need to take care of it. Avoid brushing your hair when it’s wet or exposing it to heating appliances that might damage it. Use enriching masks to keep the hair you have soft and thick. You can also improve the circulation of blood in your scalp by eating an iron rich diet, brushing your hair regularly and doing exercise.

If you are already seeing bald patches, visit your doctor to determine the cause. They may able to help you find ways of keeping your hair healthy, while you can turn to Longevita surgery procedures to repair your hair loss. With a hair transplant, there is a good chance that you may able to restore some of the hair that’s already been lost.

Wrinkles

While there is no way to get rid of wrinkles, there are ways in which you can reduce their appearance. Try using collagen-rich facial products and serums to reduce fine lines and using sun protection and moisturisers to fight the appearance of new winkles. You should also avoid using abrasive exfoliating creams or brushes which can strip your skin of essential oils and damage capillaries. What your skin needs is nutrients and protection and being malnourished or dehydrated can make them form faster. Drink water often throughout the day and make sure to change your diet to one that supplies you with the vitamins and minerals that your skin needs.

Weight gain and weakness

Do you find yourself getting out of breath more frequently or find yourself being not as energetic as you used to be? Diet and exercise are key to preventing unwanted weight gain, maintaining stamina and keeping your muscles and joints strong. Trim the excess fat and processed foods out of your diet and eat foods that are rich in nutrients and anti-oxidants. Try and do some form of exercise every day. Exercise needs vary from person to person, so be sure to consult your doctor before taking on a new exercise regime.  However, many people will still be capable of strenuous exercise into their old age, so don’t be afraid to push yourself.
