In the never-ending quest for a fountain of youth, people have done all sorts of wild things to keep their ageless health and beauty. (Remember when Tom Cruise put bird poop on his face for some anti-aging benefits?) Unfortunately, while there may not be a be-all and end-all secret to remaining eternally young, let alone a magic facial, the truth about thwarting wrinkles and creaky joints is that starting young keeps you young. Wearing sunscreen, eating a healthy diet, and boosting your immune system and overall health with supplements are all key steps to take toward timeless beauty and health as early as possible. We’ve rounded up some of our favorite products and treatments to keep you looking and feeling forever young.
WellPath RENEW Multi Collagen Protein Powder, $23
(For a limited time, Path readers receive a special discount.)
Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body, and collagen production declines steadily as the body ages. WellPath RENEW multi collagen protein powder, now available on Amazon, supports skin, hair, joints and digestive health by infusing your regular diet with not one, not two, but five types of essential collagen, so you can retain your youthful glow and wrinkle-free complexion for years to come.
Aveeno Protect + Hydrate Sunscreen Lotion, $8
Again, keeping skin beautiful later in life starts with keeping it healthy and protected early on. This sunscreen from Aveeno (which is SPF 30 and the absolute lowest you should go when picking a sunscreen) has the added benefit of moisturizing your skin instead of drying it out for added anti-aging benefits. Plus, this stuff is sweat- and water-resistant.
Slip Silk Sleepmask, $45
The silk is worth the splurge! The slippery material doesn’t tug at fragile and easily-aging parts of the face, which means that it causes minimum damage and offers maximum beauty sleep. Get ready for some luxurious and relaxing zzz’s.
Mad Hippie Vitamin C Serum, $27
This all-natural vegan serum helps fight discoloration and evens out complexion with a healthy dose of vitamin C. Plus, a portion of all the proceeds are donated to Save the Elephants and the Whole Planet Foundation. Good for you, good for the planet!
Yogi Tea Pure Green Tea, $22
No matter what kind you opt for – we’re personally fans of Yogi Tea, but you can have whichever you prefer – green tea is a fantastic way to naturally reduce the effects of aging. It prevents the cellular damage that causes aging to begin with, and promotes joint health and glowing skin.
Avalon Organics Brilliant Balance Enzyme Scrub, $10
This scrub from Avalon Organics keeps the dull, dead skin away while simultaneously rejuvenating the beautiful, young skin underneath. It also fights free radicals – the body’s antagonists – and is vegan, GMO-free and biodegradable.
Float On Sensory Deprivation Experience, $77 for 90 minutes
If you’re looking to have a surreal, relaxing experience while fighting off the effects of aging, try a dip in a sensory deprivation tank. The saltwater tanks submerge the user in silent darkness, while the floating sensation offers a soothing womb-like experience. Say goodbye to dead skin and bad vibes.
