Aging is an inherent process. It is unavoidable and will eventually get us all. However, we can slow it down somewhat. And no, this isn't about cosmetic surgery or aesthetic medicine procedures. A healthy, balanced diet filled with fresh vegetables and fruits is a significant step towards success.

Additionally, regular physical activity and appropriate skincare focusing on anti-aging effects can decelerate aging. A certain TikToker contends that the concoction she consumes contributes to her youthful looks. We explain how to make it.

How can you slow down aging?

Antioxidants, sometimes referred to as oxidants, are chemical compounds that neutralize damaging free oxygen radicals. These harmful substances are the culprits behind severe diseases and accelerate the body's aging process, including the skin. Nutritionists advise incorporating them into your daily diet. In which foods can you find these antioxidants? Think green, red, and yellow vegetables, citrus fruits, coffee, tea, matcha, and even some spices like turmeric, cinnamon, pepper, or ginger.

In addition to a balanced diet, appropriate skincare is also crucial. Some ingredients are potent antioxidant powerhouses. These include retinol, vitamin C, glutathione,

resveratrol, and coenzyme Q10. These are worth adding to your skincare regimen starting at 25 when the initial signs of aging begin to surface on the skin.

A recipe for the magical youth elixir

Ranavat, a popular TikToker who recently celebrated her 41st, undoubtedly looks younger than her years. She boasts clear, glowing skin with few prominent wrinkles. Ranavat shared her 'elixir of youth' recipe, which she claims gives her this youthful glow.

The TikToker brews a drink every morning that she consumes on an empty stomach. She pours warm, boiled water into a glass, then squeezes a lemon or lime in half and adds a pinch of cinnamon, turmeric, and pepper. Finally, she finishes the drink with a teaspoon of Manuka honey. This mixture is brimming with antioxidants that slow down the aging process. The first effects can be noticed after a month. Don't discontinue the regimen if you desire to maintain a youthful appearance. Let the consumption of the elixir become part of your routine.
