Drink enough water
Most of our body weight is made up of water (55 to 65% in adulthood, 45 to 55% in old age). A sufficient amount of water will improve the elasticity of the skin and take care of the elimination of all harmful substances from the body. Thanks to this, a sufficient amount of water keeps us away from many diseases and slows down the aging process.

Avoid smoking
Smoking is known to be harmful. Smoking damages our lungs, our circulatory system and our appearance. The skin of a chronic smoker is drooping, gray, dry and full of wrinkles. It certainly has nothing to do with youthful appearance. The more cigarettes we smoke, the more we accelerate the aging process.

Movement keeps you in good shape
One of the pillars of an active life is sufficient regular exercise. Getting enough exercise means allowing your body to move for at least 30 minutes a day. Adequate regular exercise increases our physical and mental condition and gives us a good mood. It also slows down ageing.

The right amount of sleep and rest delays old age
During sleep, the adult human body produces melatonin, an antioxidant that delays the aging process and strengthens our immune system. Sleep and rest serve as a necessary regeneration of our body and brain.
