Many people constantly search for ways to keep a youthful appearance. Healthy, glowing skin is one of the main goals in this and many aim to fight off wrinkles and other unsightly signs of aging.

Autophagy is an essential natural process of the body which effectively recycles damaged cells. While autophagy remains at a low level in general, there are ways to influence its production rate. Autophagy levels are boosted in two ways: one, when the body’s nutrients are low; two, when the body has a greater demand for energy, such as during exercise or fasting. Are you looking to learn more on this biological process? Check out: WHAT IS AUTOPHAGY AND HOW DOES IT HAPPEN IN YOUR BODY?
2. Consume plenty of water
Water is one of the best weapons against aging skin. As water naturally evaporates from the skin, it’s important to continually replenish the body by drinking plenty of water. It is recommended to consume one liter of water at least daily. Rather than letting your skin become dry, water consumption will help with keeping it smooth, elastic, and plump. You can also consume water through the food that you eat, so you do not need to drink it all.
3. Add red meat to your diet
When red meat is eaten in moderation, it can provide great benefits to your skin. As well as having ample quantities of zinc and protein, red meat provides you with the amino acids required to produce collagen in the body. Collagen is present in skin and can boost tissue repair and maintenance, helping to restore skin elasticity. Other collagen-boosting foods are available for non-meat eaters, such as nuts, eggs, soy, and citrus fruits.
4. Go natural with your skin care products
Focus on using natural skin care products. Most non-natural skin care products are packed with chemicals, which over time can be harmful to your skin. They can result in speeding up your skin’s aging or simply drying out your skin too much. Natural skin care products avoid adding any harsh chemicals into the mixture. They also try to focus on only including naturally produced ingredients rather any that are man-made. However, this does not mean that they will be fine on your skin without testing – natural ingredients can be just as harsh or irritating to your skin as man-made ones. Experiment to see which products are right for you.
5. Use honey on your face
Honey is a great way to keep your face looking fresh and smooth. After cleaning your face, apply a layer of honey (which can be diluted with purified water if you prefer), leave for 20minutes and then wash off. It is a great moisturizer and can help soothe skin conditions as it is has anti inflammatory properties. It is also has antimicrobial properties which can help to keep your skin clean, reducing the risk of acne outbreaks.
