Anti-Aging Tips for Youthful Skin

Just about all of us are looking for that illusive fountain of youth. While looking younger might not be as simple as taking a pill or using a cream, there are different techniques you can use to slow down how fast aging shows up on your skin. These various techniques are best used in conjunction, and keep in mind that genetics plays a role in how our skin looks and ages. Here are a couple anti-aging tips that you can try today to improve the look and feel of your skin.

Choose the Right Cosmetics

The key to great looking skin is using products that put a lot of lost moisture back into your complexion. Products like anti-aging serums and thick moisturizers are great to use at night. During the day, you should always apply sunscreen before you leave the house, even if it’s cloudy outside. Sunscreen should be applied each and every day of the year.

Anti-Aging Foods

You can slow signs of aging and look younger for longer based on what you consume. Don’t worry, it isn’t about eliminating foods you love because they’re bad for you. Rather, it’s about adding in foods that are good for you. You can still enjoy sweets and fatty food items in moderation.

When it comes to slowing down the aging of the face from the inside, look for whole, naturally occurring foods that are as raw and unprocessed as possible. Fruits and vegetables are very beneficial to the skin. However, many meats, grains and oils can also aid in preserving your complexion and helping you to look younger for longer.

When it comes to staying youthful, it’s all about treating the skin from the outside and the inside. When you consume healthy foods in conjunction with a stellar skincare regimen, you’ll love how young, supple and healthy your skin looks.

Hop To It And Raise Your Own Rabbits

Once an old-world favorite, rabbit is making a comeback as a protein of choice in the homesteading world due to its high protein content. Whether you want to raise rabbits for meat, for extra cash, or for the fun of it, there are a few things to keep in mind. Use this quick start guide to have a hoppin’ good time raising your own rabbits.

Most farms have the space to raise rabbits in larger colonies, but they must be managed effectively. Remember the old saying: rabbits breed like, well, rabbits! A female rabbit can have three litters a year, with an average of seven babies in each litter. Decide if and when you’ll separate males and females to keep herd size manageable. Otherwise hasenpfeffer will be on your menu for months!

When building a hutch for your rabbits, design with space in mind. Rabbits need plenty of space in their hutch to jump, run, and be comfortable. Estimates vary depending on who you ask, but for the happiest hoppers, shoot for providing ten square feet per adult rabbit. You can save on space and make your rabbits happier by giving them ramps and leveled hutches for exploration. If you have the space, consider creating a simple rabbit run out of wire. Let the rabbits stretch their legs and explore green grass while staying protected from predators.

It goes without saying, but a colony of rabbits is only as healthy as their environment. Encourage your rabbits to do litter training to keep cage cleaning as easy as possible. Always provide fresh hay for comfortable bedding. As an added bonus, female rabbits will use this fresh hay when it’s time to build a nest–no extra work is required on your end. Just make sure the rabbits have enough to stay warm in the winter!

Rabbits have a reputation for being docile, but rabbit breeders know these little creatures can get feisty and competitive, particularly in a group setting. The last thing you want is a fight. Keep the peace by providing ample food and water for your colony in multiple locations.

Raising rabbits is one of the easiest and low maintenance homesteading activities you can do. Provide a better quality of life for the animals and know where the meat on your table comes from by raising it in your backyard.
