How to Prevent, Reduce, and Stop Premature Aging in its Tracks

Stephanie Klantschi

Looking to turn back the clock on aging? While we have yet to discover a miracle cure, one thing is certain, taking care of yourself and prioritizing self-care will make all the difference.

Don't fret - we're not suggesting adding a huge list of to-dos on your already long list, rather easy swaps to your daily routine that nourish your true home - your mind and body. Check out some ideas below.

SLEEP - aim for 7 to 9 hours of quality sleep each night. Go to bed and wake up at the same time each day and remove electronics from the bedroom. The artificial blue light from gadgets increases alertness and stops the natural production of sleep-inducing melatonin.

Difficulty falling asleep? Try the 100% natural Sleep Well Collection by Scentuals made with a relaxing essential oil blend of Ylang Ylang, Lavender, Jasmine, Sandalwood, Vanilla, Clary Sage, and Roman Chamomile so you can drift away to dreamland with ease.

GET MOVING - start small and go for a 15-minute walk, try a new YouTube video, take up a fun active hobby like hula hooping or yoga. Consistency is key!

EAT CLEAN - caffeine, alcohol, sugar, and processed foods wreak havoc on our body. Focus on eating whole foods and natural sugars like berries to indulge your sweet tooth. Try sticking to one cup of joe a day without the unhealthy additives like sweetened creamer. Packing a lunch is another easy way to eat healthy and bonus, it saves money.

RELAX - simple self-care practices like listening to soft music, brewing herbal tea, taking a bath, or meditating allows your mind to slow down and decompress. Stress has been proven to cause premature aging so taking this time for yourself is important!

SKINCARE - we always recommend using quality natural products on your body, as the saying goes - what goes on your body, goes in your body. Our neck and hands are delicate and can show signs of aging first so always be sure to extend your skincare routine to include those areas and don't forget your SPF!

Feeling tired and in need of restored youthful radiance? Treat yourself to the Anti-aging Facial Collection by Scentuals . This complete skin routine contains nourishing vitamins and antioxidants like hyaluronic acid and buddleja stem cells that fight free radicals, sun damage, and work to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

To truly prevent signs of aging you must take care of yourself from the inside out. If you are not getting enough sleep, regular exercise, and eating well any product or treatment will only provide a quick fix. Use products to support and maintain your good habits and remember aging is a beautiful thing.
