20 secrets of eternal youth from Ekaterina Andreeva
Beauty Ekaterina Andreeva, presenter of the TV program "Time", looks great! Do you know how old she is? 52! And who will give? No one!
"It's not so difficult to stay young," Ekaterina assures. "I will gladly reveal all my secrets!"
Sleep in the dark and cold
The bedroom should not be above 18-20 degrees. For health, and therefore - beauty, you need coolness. Even in the winter, I always open the window at night. On the windows, hang tight curtains. After all, melatonin is produced in the dark, which helps the body to recover.
Lie down early and sleep eight hours
I try to stay up at 10 o'clock in the evening, because from 22 to 24 hours in a dream, a hormone is produced, responsible for youth and beauty! No wonder the English call these two hours "beauty-slip" - that is, the dream of beauty. Sleep at least eight hours a day and preferably on an orthopedic pillow!
Get up step by step
Wake up no later than eight in the morning. I sometimes get up at six! Do not jump from the bed at once. First, stretch, and then 10 times pat yourself on the head. Then rub your ears - 15 times clockwise and the same - against. Then start slowly turning your head to the right and left. And so - 100 times! You will feel how the energy literally fills you! It is necessary to rise slowly, because a sharp transition from one state to another is very harmful. And more - buy an alarm clock with a soft, pleasant sound for you.
Drink clean water
The first thing I do when I get up from bed is drinking a glass of water. At the same time, it must be room temperature. And not from the tap! It is worth to have filters or buy bottled water in the store. Personally, I prefer mineral non-carbonated. In a day you need to drink at least 1, 5 liters of water an hour before or one hour after eating.
Choose the right tea
I do not drink coffee, but I love tea! Especially - green. But not from sachets, but from custard, from whole leaves. In this case, only the one who is not more than eight months from the time of collection, and stored in the refrigerator. I have at home even a special refrigerator for tea from China.
Eat breakfast cereals
In the morning I eat only after gymnastics. I have breakfast with berries and cereals from whole grains boiled on the water. Sometimes I add dried fruits and nuts. I love buckwheat and black rice.
I do not eat after 19 hours. And I do not eat anything fat, sweet, salty, floury and canned! There is no meat in my menu. I eat only cereals, fish, vegetables and a little fruit. Dairy products I allow myself once a week or two! In each person there live almost three kilograms of various fungi, bacteria and microbes. Milk and all dairy products stimulate the reproduction of these organisms! And why load your immune system?
Eco-friendly raw foods
No chemical additives! Everything is only natural! Now there are suppliers of environmentally friendly bioproducts. Set the goal to eat qualitatively - be sure to find where such food can be bought! Try to give preference to products that can be eaten raw: berries, sprouted grains, greens, vegetables, fruits, nuts.
When cooking, never heat oil, as it begins to emit harmful substances! Give up the big fire. And best of all - buy a special saucepan in which food due to high pressure is cooked at a low temperature. Then in it all useful substances will be preserved! If you cook in the oven, then make sure that the temperature does not exceed 120 degrees.
Salt - yes, sugar - no!
Salt is necessary for our body. But you need to use it in minimum quantities, best of all - marine. But I completely replaced sugar with dried fruits, honey and fructose.
Weigh yourself and fast
Maintaining weight is much easier than getting rid of extra pounds. I always keep scales close at hand. And if the arrow swung forward, then I do everything to bring it back! When necessary, I can sit for 10 days on the water. Or on green tea and rice without salt! But in order not to resort to such extremes, it is enough to observe all the posts. I also fast on Wednesdays and Fridays.
Go in for sports
To the body remained taut and slender, it must be trained. I go three times a week to fitness, three - to yoga, two - to tai chi - this is Chinese gymnastics - and two more - to Pilates - a special exercise system. Plus the pool. In general, I train both in the morning and in the evening after work.
Many and quickly go
Problems with excess weight will go away without a trace if you walk a lot and go fast. Note: fat begins to burn down only after the 30th minute. So take every opportunity to walk! You can, of course, and run, but during the run, there is a mini-shaking of the joints and the brain.
Treat your skin
Once or twice a week I go to the sauna. But I do not make peelings! But once a week I make a mask on the basis of cosmetics of a French firm. It includes extracts from plants collected in an ecologically clean place. Once a week, I also do so-called oxygen therapy and energetic facial massage with silver ailerons in the salon - this gives a strong rejuvenating effect!
Do not sunbathe
Ultraviolet causes early skin aging! Therefore, on the beach, I go only in a closed swimsuit with a sunscreen applied to the face and body with a strength of at least 50 units! At the same time I sit all the time under the umbrella! About tanning in general I am silent!
Do not smoke and drink wine
I have not been smoking for more than two years. Happy immensely! She began to feel much better, to distinguish even the finest smells, and, of course, the skin also thanked me - a beautiful complexion. Therefore, immediately stop smoking! And as for alcohol ... Dry wine is even useful for health in very small quantities. I prefer Georgian, Spanish and Portuguese.
The minimum of cosmetics
If the skin is well-groomed, makeup may not be necessary at all. But if you really want to "draw something" on my face, I make do with a minimum of makeup. Sweep the puff, dipped in powder, shine on the lips, mascara - on the eyelashes. Bright makeup, as a rule, is old.
Re-educate your family
To lead a healthy lifestyle is very difficult, if there are no like-minded people. Therefore, unobtrusively, quietly involve the family in this matter. My husband and daughter, like me, do not eat meat, drink clean water and go in for sports.
Work and do not rush to retire
The later you retire, the longer you stay young! Even the deepest old people work in Japan. Therefore, there are so many long-livers. The work extends both years and youth!
Do not be angry or jealous
Watch your mental state. Once you learn to live in harmony with yourself and the world around you, stop being angry and jealous, you'll immediately notice the changes: and the wrinkles will straighten out, and your eyes will shine, and the figure will build up! My motto is: "Give me, God, the peace of mind to accept that which I can not change, give me the strength to change what I can, and give wisdom, so as not to confuse one with another!"
