facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

Have you noticed your skin doesn’t look as youthful as it did before? Do you wish you could turn back the clock? I’m here to tell you that you can! Anybody can turn back the clock, and best of all, it doesn’t need to take very long at all! If you want to know the secret to youthful skin in a flash, read on…

Get Plenty of Sleep

Sleep plays a massive part in how youthful your skin looks. If you don’t get a good, quality night’s sleep regularly, it will take its toll on your skin. You’ll get premature wrinkles, your skin will look dull, and you’ll have dark circles to top it off. Make sure you get at least 7 hours of sleep a night. Some people need a little more or less than others, but it all depends on the person. 7 is the average and a good number to aim for.

Keep Yourself Hydrated

Hydrated skin is happy skin! Not only is water good for your skin, it’s good for the rest of your body too. Drinking 2 litres of water a day will ensure your skin glows and flushes out toxins. If you commit to drinking a big bottle every day, you should soon notice the difference.


Fill Up on Natural Foods

Natural food is so much better for the skin than processed junk. Sugary food can make the skin spotty and aged too, so make sure you keep sugary foods low (even fruit!). Eat plenty of vegetables, and make sure you get enough healthy fats in your diet. Avocado, egg yolk, nut butters, seeds, and similar healthy fats are great for skin.


Use Special Products

There are a few special products out there that people swear by when it comes to youthful looking skin. Pure emu oil has many uses, and one of them is to make the skin look more youthful. There are a number of face creams and serums that are said to work wonders too. The key is to do a little research and know your skin type, so you can select the perfect product for your skin.


Book in for a Beauty Treatment

Certain beauty treatments can help you to turn back the years. Prescription facials are specifically designed for your skin, so after a course of treatments you should notice younger looking skin. There’s also microdermabrasion, which polishes off the top layer of skin to reveal smoother, younger looking skin. Treat yourself and you won’t regret it!



Exercise is a brilliant yet natural way to get more youthful looking skin. If you take a look at somebody who exercises and somebody who doesn’t, you’ll notice that the one who exercises looks much younger. Exercise has many different benefits, but more youthful skin is definitely one of the best.

It shouldn’t be long before you start noticing a difference in your skin with these tips. If you have any tips of your own, leave a comment below. Thanks for reading!

About Mikey: If there is a round ball in sight, Mikey is putting, hitting, or chasing it. In fact, Mikey is always chasing his entrepreneurial ideas to make them a reality. He is constantly innovating and thinking of how to improve the way we live our lives. Mikey graduated from Bowdoin College in Maine and is pursuing an executive MBA at The Johns Hopkins Carey School of Business. Partnering with his wife, Momo, has been the best decision of his life.

About Momo: Momo lives in New York City, although she always needs her fix of waterside dining, outdoor activities, and beach time. She loves traveling and exploring new cultures, always integrating some piece of her adventures into her life. Momo is also intellectually curious, having completed degrees at Harvard Business School, University of Cambridge, and The Johns Hopkins University. She constantly pushes herself to question the status quo.

The Story of Mikey & Momo™: Momo is sweet. In fact, so sweet the bugs just love her. We were traveling through Southeast Asia and discovered an exotic, botanical fragrance that doubles as insect repellent. It smelled so good and worked so well. Too often we passed on applying perfume or cologne to avoid attracting painful and itchy bug bites. Too often we scrubbed our legs of insect repellent before climbing into bed…no more.
