9 Beauty Hacks to Slow Down Aging and Stay Younger for Longer

We all want to stay young for as long as possible, both for our health and our appearance. A scientific team tested around 1,000 38-year-olds and found that some of them were as fit as they were in their 20s, while others seemed to have the health conditions of seniors. According to the study, genetics account for only about 20% of how people age, while environmental and lifestyle factors play a much larger role.

 

We’ve gathered these awesome beauty hacks to help you stay younger looking for longer.

 

1. Manage your stress level.

Nobel Laureate Elizabeth Blackburn found out that telomeres (the ends of chromosomes) are actually responsible for the aging processes in our cells. The shorter our telomeres are, the faster we age. Chronic stress leads to shorter telomeres, which is why it is important to manage your stress levels.

Meditation is one of the best ways to lower your stress levels and feel more relaxed. It also helps to prevent the shortening of telomeres. Sign up for a yoga class and learn to let go of negative situations and thoughts.

 

2. Surround yourself with people you like.

Blackburn’s research has also proven that people who live in safe and friendly communities have longer telomeres. So invest in your neighborhood and take advantage of it.
