Adriana says she looks 20 years younger thanks to turmeric and no pillow – Plymouth Live

A woman approaching 40 looks younger than she did in her twenties - and claims it's all down to turmeric and not stressing over things out of her control. Adriana Krzesniak, 39, credits the spice with helping her look so youthful - and also says smothering her skin in SPF and maintaining a healthy mindset have helped too.

She says she looked "so much older" when she was in her twenties - "cooped up and miserable". Adriana felt she was given a "second life" when she left her husband at the age of 32 and moved to Stuttgart, Germany, to pursue her dream career in fashion.

She started reading self-help books and decided to stop stressing about things out of her control. Struggling to get pregnant throughout her twenties, Adriana has battled fertility issues but is still trying for a baby with her new husband, Kamel Krzesniak, 32, a film maker.

Adriana says she owes her perfect complexion to a healthy mindset, a simple skincare routine and a nutritious diet - which includes turmeric on most meals. Adriana, a visual merchandiser, originally from a small town outside of Warsaw, Poland said: "In my 20s I always had this impression I had something to prove and there was so many expectations and now I am more at peace with myself and I have stopped stressing.

"I started reading self help books and decided to stop looking for validation in other people. My skincare routine is very simple, I swear by superfoods, water and SPF.

"The last time I was stressed was when I went through my divorce in 2016. Ive been through IVF and have miscarried twice, but I keep a positive mindset as is something so out of my control.

"Kamel and I are still trying but plan to adopt if it doesn't work."

She added: "I spent my twenties trying for a baby. I feel like I have had two lives, my first life was so different.

When I was in my twenties I was stuck in my hometown where everyone knew everyone. I had my own business selling shoes which was very successful but I always wanted to get out.

I felt like I was living for my ex-husband instead of myself.

Six years ago she divorced her ex and moved to Warsaw, Poland, and then on to Stuttgart, Germany to start her career as a visual merchandiser. The move transformed my style and social media helped me to curate my own style," she said.

"When I was younger I always wanted to look older, I would wear high heels and dresses to look more feminine. Now I have my own original style, I love the 2000s aesthetic and oversized clothing, people often stop me in the street to compliment how I dress."

The fashionista also has 1ml of hyaluronic acid in her smile lines every two years and 0.5ml in her lips each year. I look younger than I did in my twenties now I'm approaching my forties," Adriana said.

My smile lines have changed the shape of my face and have made me look younger. A 24-year-old at work asked me out on a date the other week, I said I have a husband and was too old for him.

When I told him my age, he was shocked, he thought I was 22.

Adriana also owes her youthful look to her petite stature - and is only 5ft 4ins. She also wonders if the fact she sleeps without a pillow has stopped her developing wrinkles.

"When I was 12 I had scoliosis and my mum told me to sleep flat on my back without a back, and that is the way I have slept ever since," she said.

"I don't wake up with sleep lines so maybe this could have had an effect."

She swears by drinking lots of water - drinking at least two and a half litres a day - and plastering on suncream for a flawless complexion. Adriana says she wouldnt say no to Botox - although she claims she has never had it before.

She has undergone radiofrequency therapy - a non-surgical skin tightening procedure - and has even bought her own machine so she can do it at home. Adriana says she stays young with a healthy balanced diet - eating lots of superfoods including: turmeric, black cumin oil, millet and nutritional yeast.

She only eats meat two to three times a week and won't touch processed kinds. Every day she tucks into buckwheat porridge, with millet and turmeric - followed by something light such as avocado on toast.

Later on, she will eat a healthy cooked dinner - her favourites are vegetarian chilli con carne and vegan paella. She also uses retinol serum every day after she has cleansed with micellar water and a moisturiser - and she uses a face mask once or twice a month.

When going through IVF treatment, Adriana can't use retinol as much. Adriana added: I had never washed my face with tap water until the age of 35 but when I went for radiofrequency therapy, they advised me I should.

"I only used to use micellar water."

The fashionistas style has even changed, she says she dresses more fashionably now and is less shy to wear what she loves.

She said: As 40 is around the corner Im apprehensive but Im so happy I have found stability in my life and self-confidence.
