Women in their 20s may think that they can get away with refusing to take care of their bodies because there is no sign of damage quite yet, but this is the time when habits are formed and what we do today will affect the rest of our lives. Check out the following smart ways to take care of yourself in your 20s.
1. Drink H20
It is important to start taking care of the health of your body now. Drink one glass of water an hour to get rid of waste. Also, create a good skincare routine using simple and natural products. Limit fast food, pollutants, sun and stress. Drinking water also helps to keep us alert. Some experts argue that water works even better than coffee when it comes to helping people focus and stay awake. Interesting, right?
2. Consume Cacao
Cacao has a great deal of yummy ingredients, like antioxidants, magnesium, sulfur, calcium, iron and zinc, which all help to develop healthy skin and promote strong hair and nails. Make sure to stay away from soft drinks, as they are completely unnatural and only serve to hurt our health.
3. Brush Your Teeth
One of the most essential preventative measures for 20-somethings is to floss and brush their teeth. Flossing is so important at any age. Flossing stimulates the gums, which leads to less gum recession and gum disease later on in life. If you’d like to fix your imperfect smile, don’t think it’s too late to do so just because you are out of your teens. Invest in Invisalign clear braces to correct misaligned or protruding teeth. Studies show that potential employers find people with straight teeth to be more confident and able than those with imperfect smiles.
4. Use Sunscreen
Begin now to use sunscreen – all over your body, even in the winter months. Make sure to get your neck and the backs of your hands because these are the areas that will age the quickest. They’re also more prone to brown age spots. Know that the teens and the 20s are the times when irreparable sun damage often occurs, and it will start to show in the 30s and 40s.
