From Green Tea to Eye Bag Removal: How to Look Younger

Age Food Health

We all have to face getting older. For some people it is a natural part of life, for others it is an absolute nightmare that never ends. Like all things in this world, some people are luckier than others and with a combination of good genes and self-care manage to age with grace, while others feel that they look old before their time. Fortunately there are a range of things that you can do, from drinking green tea to eye bag removal, to keep looking young for as long as possible. Some of these things should be started from a fairly young age in order to be effective, while others are a last resort for those who aren’t happy with their matured aesthetic.

Eye Bag Removal to Make You Look Younger

Eye bag removal is a cosmetic treatment that is used a last resort for many people who feel the skin on their face is drooping and their eyes look aged. Many older people have very obvious bags under their eyes which not only show their age but make them look permanently tired. Lower eye bag removal is an operation designed to remove excess skin and fat from the lower eyelids. There are many places you can get this procedure carried out, however Dr Darren McKeown’s cosmetic clinic in Glasgow is one of the most sought after locations to receive this miracle treatment.

Foods and Drinks to Keep You Looking Young

On the other end of the spectrum from eye bag removal is of course healthy foods and drinks that can be consumed as a preventative measure from appearing older than you feel. One of the most popular drinks for achieving this is green tea. Green tea is extremely high in antioxidants which can protect against unstable molecules that form in response to stress. One of the best antioxidants in green tea is polyphenols which can protect collagen. For those who don’t know, collagen is the main protein in your skin which we lose as we get older. Other foods which are promoted as great anti-ageing preventive measures are:


Fatty Fish

Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Dark Chocolate

Get Enough Sleep

This sounds a bit obvious, however we are all guilty of not sleeping enough or not at the proper times. Life is tough and we all need to do what we can to support ourselves and our families as well as enjoying ourselves. More often than not, this means losing a lot of sleep. As you get older, is it important that you put a conscious effort into giving your body the rest it needs at the proper times. To help you achieve this try sticking to the same night time routine as often as you can. Also you should exercise regularly, but never too close to bed time, if your body is physically tired you tend to sleep sounder. Not only does getting enough sleep make you feel rested but it will keep your face, particularly your eyes looking fresh and young. This should all help you avoid having to have procedures like eye bag removal in future.
