Aging is one nightmare no one wants to see but it is inevitable and has to be dealt with before the symptoms start showing up. No one wants to get old, wrinkly and visibly aged. Your face is the first place where you can spot signs of aging whereas it is the last place you want them to show up. Aging does happen but some factors make the process start earlier than expected and make you age much faster than you naturally do. It is imperative you avoid treading certain paths to prevent premature aging and stay young for as long as possible.

One of the primary reasons you age early is improper and unhealthy diet. When was the last time you bought some fresh fruits in a large quantity and went on a fruit-only diet for a day or two? I am sure you don’t remember. Fresh fruits and raw vegetables aid in preventing premature aging as they provide your skin with essential nutrients, which a cooked meal cannot. Comprise your food of brightly colored fruits like berries (strawberry, blueberry, etc.), citrus fruits (orange, guava, etc.) or any other fruit that you come across.

Avoid having food that is fried and full of sugar and fats. They damage skin and promote premature aging. Having a pizza here and a burger there is acceptable but when this poison enters your body almost every day then you know what happens- wrinkles. The sun causes another major blow to your skin. The sun’s UV rays are infamous for their ill effects on the outer and inner layer of the skin. Long durations in the sun will gradually cause wrinkles and pigmentation on your skin resulting in premature aging.

Smokers beware! Smoking brings along wrinkles and aging apart from having numerous ill effects on overall health. Smoking blocks the flow of required amount of oxygen in the blood and skin. For a young skin and to prevent premature aging, avoid active as well as passive smoking. Yes, it can be tough initially but when you see the results you won’t regret your decision. Another must-do for a young, wrinkle-free skin is to take sufficient sleep. Since sleeping is the only time when the body recuperates from its wear and tear of the day, at least 7-8 hours of sound sleep is another prerequisite for a great looking, young skin.

We all know how exhausting and stressful work can be, and we all know that nothing feels better than enjoying a night out after a long day at work. While this fact doesn’t differ between men and women, the way in which the “unwinding” process takes place does. Women find pleasure and entertainment in many different activities, most of which require more preparation than they would for men.

 

A top priority for women when going out is being dressed properly for the occasion. It’s always good to have a variety of dresses, skirts, etc. to choose from, so that you can quickly pick one that gets you in the mood to go out and has you feeling good about yourself. Also, be sure to choose matching shoes for whatever you’re wearing, but also ensure that you will be comfortable in those shoes (sore feet can really ruin your night out).

 

Next up to be taken care of before you’re ready to enjoy your night is your hair. While not the most exciting part of getting ready, it is one of the most crucial, as poorly groomed hair can ruin an otherwise good look. Pick a hairstyle that you think looks best both with your clothing and for the occasion, and go with it. It’s also a good idea to lightly dust your hair with some talcum powder at the roots to absorb some of the oil if your hair is looking oily and you don’t have the time to wash and dry it before leaving.

 

Third on the list is to choose a (preferably matching) bag/purse to take with you on your night out. It’s recommended that you choose a bag that you don’t use on a regular basis to change things up a bit, and just quickly throw in the items that you will need for the night (keys, driver’s license, etc.)

 

A final tip before going out is to unwind a bit at home first to get you in the mood for having a good time. Take a shot of some hard liquor, hit a bowl of your finest kush (if you’re that kind of woman), or even just relax to some of your favorite music. However, do not get intoxicated if you plan on driving at any point during your night out, your safety and that of the people around you is much more important.

 

All of the above should be enough to get any and every woman ready for a night out after a long day of hard work. Women need time to relax and let all of their stress escape them just as much as men do, and getting properly prepared for that will ensure that you have the best time possible doing so.
