5 Ways to Boost Your Growth Hormones to Look Young!
Human Growth Hormone (HGH) enhances the cellular repair processes that allow us to age with grace. HGH regulates metabolism to burn fat, build muscle, and slow-down the negative effects of stress. Another important characteristic of HGH is that it enhances collagen production and repair. Healthy collagen creates softer skin, reduces wrinkles, and enhances one`s complexion. Additionally, this strengthens and supports our joints as they age.
Most people see their HGH levels decline with age; however, certain lifestyle modification helps to maximise HGH secretion throughout life.
- Do high-intensity, short time period resistance training and surge-style training daily. Ideal time is first thing in the morning on an empty stomach.
- Be in bed early and sleep between 7-8 hours each night. The body secretes large doses of HGH between the hours of 10pm – 2am. Sleeping maximises HGH.
- Keep blood sugar under control by eating a diet low in sugar/grains and high in nutrient dense superfoods, healthy proteins, and good fats.
- Use a non-denatured whey protein from a grass-fed cow or goat. Whey protein contains L-glutamine and branched chain amino acids that help maximise HGH secretion.
- See a wellness chiropractor for a posture and neurological evaluation that will access the function of the body’s healing process.
Give your face an Expert’s touch! Applying Make-up (smartly) to Take-off the years
If you’re looking for an expert’s opinion, here are some anti-ageing make-up tips from Bobbi Brown, a well-known make-up artist and author of three best sellers on beauty. Bobbi Brown is also the founder of her own multimillion-dollar cosmetics business.
Sweep blush on the apple of your cheek (meatiest part when you smile). Brush in a circular motion out toward your hairline to avoid streaks.
Avoid dark lipstick. Wear soft, vibrant tones such as berry, rose, or apricot to add a splash of color and make lips look larger. Then dab gloss in the centre of the lower lip to reflect light and give the illusion of fullness.
Dust powder only where needed, usually your T-zone (forehead, nose, chin). Otherwise, face powder settles into skin, highlighting rather than hiding winkles.
Avoid frosted eye shadow. Wear shimmer or sheen shadows that are finely milled and less likely to settle in creases.
Avoid bottom heavy eyeliner, which makes eyes look tired. The upper lids should look a tad more intense than the bottoms to frame and make eyes pop.
