We’ve all been there - shamelessly staring at perfect hair and skin of celebrities and aestheticians. They have made us wonder time and time again if they are ageless or merely have access to the fountain of youth.

We also often wonder about expensive and unaffordable treatments such as fillers, injections, lasers and what not. The fact is that you don’t need expensive salon or laser treatments to keep yourself looking younger. A good beauty regime can keep wrinkles, freckles and other signs of ageing miles away from you.

11 Anti-Ageing Tips that the Skin Obsessed Swear By

Here, we have prepared a list of 11 anti-ageing tips based on the beauty routine of your favourite celebrities, so you can look younger and radiant all the time.
  1. Natural Oil Cleansing
People obsessed with beauty regimes swear by natural oils, which are also popularly known as essential oils. For example, coconut oil, argan oil and sesame oil can clean up clogged pores and remove dead skin cells for fresh and glowing skin. The choice of oil depends on your skin type. To include essential oils into your beauty regime, do the following:

Massage your face and body with warm essential oil at night and wash off in the morning.
For wrinkle-free skin, gently massage your face with coconut oil or olive oil and leave it on overnight.
  1. Omega-3 Fish Oil
We all know that fish oil improves your health and overall immune system. Pesticide-free and omega-3 rich fish oil can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and freckles on your skin, keeping it looking fresh and glowing. Here are a couple tips on how to add fish oil into your daily routine:

Consume fish oil in your food.
Take fish oil capsules every day according to your body’s requirement.
  1. Moisturising
Keeping your skin moisturised allows it to retain its natural elasticity, thereby avoiding wrinkles and fine lines. Choose an organic moisturiser to apply on your skin before going to bed. For daytime, use a moisturiser that also protects your skin from sun damage.
  1. Hydrating
It is necessary to drink at least 8 glasses of water every day to keep yourself sufficiently hydrated. Dehydrated skin tends to look dull and stretched, and is prone to wrinkles and fine lines. Hydration does not refer to drinking plain water only. You can add chunks of your favourite fruit to your water to make it flavoured.
  1. Sunscreen
It has been scientifically proven that excessive exposure to the sun is dangerous for your skin. You can either cover your skin with light fabric or wear sunscreen with enough SPF to protect your skin from harmful UVA & UVB rays. If you go out in the sun regularly, then apply a sunscreen during the day and cleanse your skin before going to the bed.
  1. Anti-Ageing Skincare Products
For the first time in ages, celebrities have dared to go makeup-free on the red carpet, and if you go through their interviews, you will know that almost all of them use anti-ageing skincare products. These products are manufactured using natural and organic components like argan oil, and safe chemicals like Hyaluronic Acid, which absorb into your skin, repairing cells and making you look younger.
Modern anti-ageing products like Nakin’s all natural range contain ingredients which keep your skin hydrated and younger looking. For example, daytime creams contain ingredients that keep your skin fresh, hydrated, and protected from sun damage. Night-time creams contain ingredients that remove the effect of daytime stressors and repair damaged skin cells while you’re sleeping.

  1. Antioxidant Scrub
Antioxidants absorb in your skin and remove free radicals that make your skin look dull. This is why more brands are now using antioxidants in their anti-ageing products. An antioxidant scrub can help remove dead cells from your skin to make it look fresh and youthful. You can make your own scrub by mixing green tea extract or coffee grains with crushed berries.
  1. Anti-Inflammation Routine
Inflammation makes your skin look dry and less vibrant. A night-time routine of massaging your skin with retinol-rich cream can help you get rid of inflammation. If you are looking for natural solutions then you can choose from a range of essential oils, or simply apply a turmeric mask with olive oil.
  1. Detox Bath/Ancient Special Bath
During ancient times, people used to keep their face and body wrinkle-free by taking a special bath once a month. This included bathing with hot water for five minutes, then switching to cold water for five minutes, and then hot water for another five minutes. Hot water helps in removing dead cells from the surface of your skin and cleans pores. Cold water helps close open pores and tightens the skin. Detox baths also have a similar effect on your skin.
  1. Sleep
Sleep regulates your natural Circadian rhythm and maintains your body’s metabolism. It helps release stress and fatigue, strengthens your immune system and regularises the production of hormones in your body. Hence, an eight-hour sleep is essential for keeping your skin fresh and glowing.
  1. Balanced Diet
Well, this one is obvious! A balanced diet, rich in proteins, vitamins, minerals and healthy fats can keep your skin looking younger and fresher. A balanced diet serves to meet your body’s daily requirement of nutrients. Do not forget to increase your intake of Zinc.

Healthy, glowing and younger skin is possible with a beauty routine which matches your skin’s requirements. Ideally, you should start taking care of your skin before you turn 25, because this is the age when cell degeneration begins.
