In just a few short months (October 29th, to be exact), I will be turning twenty-nine years old. That is one year shy of thirty. Like many others, I struggle with the idea of turning thirty because not only is it a new decade of life, but it reminds me of my younger years when I was convinced thirty was old (how wrong was I?!). The Nexxus Youth Renewal Rejuvenating Elixir (sign up for a sample here NOW!) is an awesome product for my anti-aging routine when it comes to my hair. There were times in my mid-twenties when I wasn’t sure if I should be using preventative products yet or not, but it’s obvious that a healthy lifestyle and preventative products are key. I’ve got my anti-aging beauty secrets inside, including my secret to gorgeous hair using Nexxus!
This Nexxus Youth Renewal Rejuvenating Elixir is designed to combat eight visible signs of aging hair. I already use anti-aging measures in many other parts of my life besides hair. Have you ever seen someone who is older and still looks the same age as a sixty-something year old? I have. It definitely makes me wonder about lifestyle and general maintenance that anyone can achieve.
Some measures I personally take to prevent anti-aging on a daily basis:
- Consume a lot of water. This sounds so cliche, but I really do mean it. I consume easily over eight glasses of water per day, and it keeps my skin looking hydrated and youthful. Water keeps all of your organs functioning properly, and it hydrates your skin to lessen the look of fine lines and wrinkles. I mean, why WOULDN’T you want to consume h20?
- Use eye cream. I have been using eye cream since I was twenty years old. A lot of my family members and friends would tease me for doing so, but the truth is, the eye area is the thinnest on your body and it is very prone to being dry and wrinkling. You don’t even need a fancy, expensive eye cream. Anything that moisturizes the skin underneath your eyes will combat fine lines and crow’s feet.
- Eat plenty of vegetables and plant based foods. I am probably a little biased because I was a vegetarian for years, but I definitely love vegetables of all kinds. The same goes with fruit varieties of all kinds. These help provide vitamins to your skin and it is literally the definition of beauty from the inside out.
- Get your sweat on. Exercising as much as possible is a fabulous way to look younger. Every single time you exercise, you are creating blood flow to your face and other parts of your body. The more oxygen that arrives to these places, the more you get that “glow” to your look. I fit in my exercise every morning at 5:30am at a nearby park before I start my work day.
- Use sunscreen. I can’t stress this enough. This is coming from someone who used to work at a tanning salon in her teen years! Always use sunscreen and be careful of the sun when you are outside. It most definitely is the number one cause of premature wrinkles, not to mention skin cancer.
This Nexxus Youth Renewal Rejuvenating Elixir is awesome because it’s so convenient. I don’t need to disrupt my usual hair routine at all. I simply drop 3-4 drops of the serum in my palm and rub it onto my hair before blow drying. I love the scent of the product. You will have people asking you why your hair smells so lovely! It really worked to make my hair have more volume at the roots, yet create a smooth, shiny, healthy look at the ends.
It made my hair look incredibly shiny after just one use which is a huge benefit. I love products that make my brunette hair gleam in the light!
Overall, even after using a curling iron to achieve loose curls in my long hair, the serum has worked magic. It makes my hair look shiny, healthy, and smooth, even with the high humidity right now in the south during the summer. During long term use, I hope to be able to grow my hair out even longer by using this product and keeping my hair healthy. So far, so AMAZING with this elixir.
