9 habits that make you look older than you are

first_imgHealthLifestyle 9 habits that make you look older than you are by: Msn.com – January 8, 2015 Tweet Share Share Sharing is caring!center_img Share Correct these misstepsThe rate at which you age, or at least at which you appear to age, is heavily dependent on your lifestyle and how you take care of your body day to day. Small tweaks to your everyday routine can have big rewards, like taking years off of your face and adding years to your life. Don’t expect the fountain of youth, but correct these missteps and you’ll be looking like a fresher, younger version of yourself in no time. The fountain of youth has yet to be discovered, but there are still ways to delay the aging process. Make these lifestyle changes if you want to start feeling and looking younger now.You don’t drink enough waterHands down, drinking enough water every day is the best thing you can do for your body. It supports your health on so many levels, like regulating digestion, enhancing immune function, increasing energy, aiding weight loss, and a recent study published in the journal Frontiers in Human Neuroscience found water even boosts mental performance. However, the big benefit here is that water can have a tremendous effect on the way you look thanks to its ability to hydrate and clear up your skin. Dehydrated skin looks dull and saggy, and can make wrinkles look more defined.You don’t wear sunscreenAdmit it, you’re not one to slather on SPF first thing in the morning before you head to work. In reality, everyday exposure to the sun — even in winter — ages your skin rather rapidly. It’s never too late to start, either! Middle-aged people who began applying sunscreen daily experienced significant delays in skin aging, according to a study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine. However, the earlier you make this a habit, the better the results.You don’t wash your face at nightDon’t go to sleep without thoroughly washing your face. Over the course of the day your skin and pores collect dirt and oil. If you don’t wash it all off before you hit the hay, the dirt will clog your pores overnight and you’ll wake up with irritated skin that is quite the opposite of a healthy, glowing complexion.You don’t moisturizeBy drinking an adequate amount of water each day, you’re hydrating your skin from the inside out, which is crucial. However, it may not be enough. Sometimes you need a little extra help on the surface. We’re not talking a fancy anti-aging cream that bottoms out your wallet. A daily face moisturizer should do the trick. For an option that’s free of harsh chemicals or fragrances, rub a little coconut oil on your face in the morning. It’s natural, cheap and effective!You eat too many processed foodsThe modern American diet is arguably the biggest cause of premature aging. The main reason for this is the amount of excess sugar that exists in our food today — it’s in almost everything we eat out of a box or bag. Sugar consumption has increased in the U.S. by 40 percent since the 1970s. It contributes to dark circles under the eyes, wrinkles, dehydrated skin and in some cases, acne. Opt for whole foods as often as possible.You wash your hair everydayWhen you wash your hair every day, you strip it of its natural oils and leave it dry, brittle and dull. Try shampooing only once or twice a week. By doing so, you’ll start to experience softer, shinier hair. While you’re at it, keep your shower at a warm temperature. Hot water can dry out your hair and skin, leaving it dull and prone to damage. You forget your shades at homeEven if you’re sporting SPF, it’s important to pay close attention to the skin around your eyes. It’s more delicate than the skin on the rest of your face, and therefore more susceptible to damage. When you don’t wear sunglasses, you squint, and all that squinting eventually turns into crow’s-feet, an evident sign of aged skin.You eat out too oftenA healthy, balanced, plant-based diet is the key to glowing, healthy skin. When you eat out you don’t really know what you’re putting into your body, and it’s likely not the healthiest option. Once in a while is fine, but you’ve got to be conscious about getting whole, clean foods into your diet on a consistent basis. These foods contain essential vitamins and minerals that repair and strengthen your body from the inside out, promoting a youthful appearance and optimal body functioning. The more you eat out, the more you rob your body of those good-for-you nutrients and fill it with excess fat, sodium and sugar. A study published in Lancet Oncology found that men who followed a healthy diet, a regular exercise regimen and stress-reduction strategies were able to slow the aging process at the cellular level. The diet was high in whole foods like fruits, vegetables and unrefined grains. 579 Views   no discussionslast_img read more

Bayern Munich set to extend Alaba’s contract as outside interest mounts

first_img Bayern have offered a salary of up to 15 million euros, including premiums, but Alaba’s side demands more. Bild adds that the rumors of Lucas Hernandez earning over 20m euros is to blame for this. The report dismisses the rumor as untrue, but it looks like Alaba believes it. Bild then states that Bayern will not meet the player’s high demands, as they did with Manuel Neuer; this was apparently made clear to the Alaba side. With COVID-19 hitting the footballing world and destabilizing the market, this stance from the bosses is understandable. They may not be willing to meet demands if deemed very high. The report adds that the alleged interest from clubs like Inter Milan, PSG, Chelsea or Manchester City doesn’t make the Bavarians nervous. Bayern will certainly not be threatened by offers from the aforementioned clubs. It also works to their favor that no club would be an upgrade from Bayern at present, with the imperious form the team has been in. Bild says that if Real Madrid or Barcelona were to make an offer, the Austrian was likely to accept. However, no such offer has been forthcoming. This is still a worry since both Real Madrid and Barcelona were indeed interested in signing the player last summer. Things could take a turn if either of the chips in with a strong offer. read also:Liverpool, Man City eyeing Bayern Munich contract rebel David Alaba However, there is room for optimism — “Alaba’s father George is optimistic for the next round of negotiations, and does not rule out an extension in Munich. Both sides are keen on reaching an agreement this summer.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Loading… Bayern Munich are yet to reach an agreement with David Alaba’s entourage regarding an extension. However, both sides are open to the idea, albeit with some conditions on the table.

Read MoreWho Is The Most Powerful Woman On Earth?Big Actors Who Started Off With A Part In A Soap OperaWhich Country Is The Most Romantic In The World? David Alaba’s value to Bayern Munich is undeniable. He’s Bayern through and through, emerging from the club’s youth academy and establishing himself as a starter for a decade. He’s been invaluable at left back and more recently at center back, with his versatility making him a great asset for Bayern Munich’s treble ambitions season after season. Thus, it is not surprising that Bayern Munich are interested in extending the Austrian. Per a report by Bild (behind a paywall), Bayern want to extend Alaba’s contract, which runs until 2021. However, the first meeting between the two parties ended without any definite result. According to Bild, CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge and Sports Director Hasan Salihamidzic met last Wednesday with the player and his father George, who had traveled from Vienna. Alaba was also accompanied by his new agent Pini Zahavi. Zahavi is a high-profile agent who also happens to ply his trade for the likes of Robert Lewandowski and Wilfried Zaha, so it is understandable that Alaba would look to him to help negotiate what could be a last, bumper contract.last_img read more

Wenger hopes for Wilshere return

first_imgArsenal manager Arsene Wenger hopes England midfielder Jack Wilshere can return from an ankle injury to help his side make a “big statement” at Liverpool. “No, because you have sometimes regrets when a player played for you, and scores goals or does well somewhere else,” he said. “He was never our player. It is just a situation that did not come off and that is it.” Wenger added: “For us the important thing is to win the game. After, the fact that what happened in the summer is nothing to do with that. “If you want to win the game what is for sure is that he is one of the players that you have to keep quiet.” Asked if he would be likely to look again at a deal for Suarez this summer, Wenger said: “At the moment, no.” Despite Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis stressing the board were confident an announcement on Wenger’s new contract would soon be forthcoming, the French coach maintains there is as yet no movement on tieing up the formalities. Defenders Per Mertesacker and Bacary Sagna are also in talks over new deals, as is midfielder Tomas Rosicky. Wenger said: “The main news is Bacary Sagna, that we expect (to sign) and a few other players, but there is no (fresh) news there.” His return would be a welcome boost as Mathieu Flamini is suspended while both Aaron Ramsey and deadline day loan signing Kim Kallstrom are still several weeks away from recovery. “We might have Wilshere back and that’s basically it. (Mikel) Arteta is all right,” Wenger said. “It is important to have as many players back as possible in the squad. “In the big games it is always decided by having the complete squad available. “As many top players as possible because most of the time theses games are decided by players who come on or strong players who have a big statement in a big game.” Arsenal tackle Liverpool looking to keep striker Luis Suarez quiet, a player they mounted a protracted and ultimately failed £40m-plus-£1 bid during the summer. Suarez has gone on to bag 23 Premier League goals for the Reds and secure a lucrative new contract. Wenger, though, insists there are no regrets over Arsenal’s failure to land the Uruguay forward. Press Association The Gunners head to Anfield looking to maintain their slender two-point lead at the top of the Barclays Premier League over Manchester City and Chelsea, who beat Manuel Pellegrini’s side on Monday night. Wenger revealed Wilshere should be fit for the trip to Merseyside having sat out last weekend’s 2-0 win over Crystal Palace. last_img read more
