Dreaming of dewy, wrinkle-free skin? These age-zapping complementary therapies and holistic beauty treatments are natural ways to hold back the years.
We all love to look younger and fresher, but how do we go about it without resorting to needles and cosmetic surgery?
Many people use botox injections to keep their youthful appearance, and while it may work for some, there are many cases of people taking the smoothing effects a little too far. But don’t worry, there are loads of natural treatments and therapies out there which can have a youth-boosting effect, not just on your face but on your entire body. So here’s how to look ten years younger, the natural way!
This chilly therapy involves exposing yourself to extremely low temperatures (as low as -140 degrees) for a short duration of time. It is believed to regenerate tissues and stimulate collagen production.
This facial rejuvenation acupuncture treatment is based on the principles of Chinese medicine. It involves inserting very fine needles into the face and throughout the body, in particular areas of the face, ears, neck, hands, and legs along channels or meridians of qi. The effects can be very noticeable – fine lines and deep wrinkles are diminished, bags under eyes reduced, jowls firmed, puffiness eliminated, droopy eyelids lifted and double chins minimised. Further treatment can also help the dry skin by increasing local circulation of blood and lymph to the face.
Crystal healers harness the energetic powers to therapeutic stones by placing them on reflex points on the face and body to promote vitality. Many therapists use rose quartz in their facial massages as it has long been prized for beauty rituals across the world and is famed for its health-boosting properties.
This prickly beauty treatment uses tiny needles to pump high-strength nutrients and vitamins directly into the skin. As the skin ages, the blood supply diminishes such that the supply of nutrition, oxygen, and water to the skin is suboptimal. Mesotherapy basically bypasses the circulation and delivers the nutrients to the skin cells from the outside; tiny injections are made into the dermis and epidermis so that the cells imbibe the nutrient and water-rich mixture.
