Anti-aging brings to mind face creams, but in 2018 the term will be applied to multiple aspects of your lifestyle, express.co.uk reported.
Scientists recently confirmed that it was biologically impossible for humans to live forever, but there is no reason why you can’t boost your longevity.
Much advice about how to live longer stems around diet, with Mediterranean eating in particular said to ward off death.
However, 2018 will see the anti-ageing focus shifted into other areas of wellness for how you sit, to where you workout.
Would you try these some new anti-ageing health trends?
Preventative health: Stopping diseases in their tracks — and even before symptoms have begun to appear — will be a focus of next year in healthcare.
Approximately 70 percent of premature deaths worldwide each year are due to preventable diseases, such as heart disease, diabetes and cancer.
In response, wellness retreats — known as medi-spas — are increasingly revolved around helping people lower their risk of such conditions.
These ‘preventative health holidays’ will involve health check-ups, counselling and spa therapies that cater to disease prevention.
Palacio Estoril Preventative Health in Portugal, Kurotel Healthy Longevity in Brazil and The Farm Heart Health and Stress Reduction in the Philippines are just some of the destinations providing these services.
All-in-one fitness: It is well-known that exercising regularly increases our lifespan by boosting heart health.
Indeed, working out lowers levels of ‘bad’ cholesterol, reduces blood pressure and burns body fat.
But if Pilates is good for joint pain, and boost cardiovascular fitness, how can you ensure you have enough variety to your gym routine?
Health tests: Looking after your heart and brain could have an anti-aging effect and help you live longer.
Dementia is now the leading cause of death in the UK, with cardiovascular disease following closely behind.
Omega-3 fatty acids have been shown to help keep your brain and heart in top health — but how do you know you’re getting enough? Next year you'll be able to do a test from the comfort of your own home.
Amy Morris, naturopathic nutritionist at Water for Health, said, “Whether it’s to reveal underlying health issues such as allergies, food intolerances and even deficiencies, at-home testing kits are taking the health world by storm.
“Performed from the comfort of your own home, these kits are normally incredibly easy to use and time saving, allowing you to take control of your health and understand what’s really going on in your body.”
‘Clean’ beauty: There is a move towards natural skincare without toxins — known as ‘clean’ beauty — and 2018 will see this area of skincare shed even more potentially harmful ingredients.
According to experts, ‘clean’ beauty is following ‘clean’ eating as a wellness trend.
Indeed, Mintel’s 2018 Beauty Report suggested that the concept of natural beauty is expanding, with consumers increasingly aware of the substances they are applying to their bodies.
This is said to include parabens, silicones and sulphates among other ingredients.
