Adopt An Anti-Aging Lifestyle

It’s Written All Over Your Face – And Your Body As Well

How you live shows. And, we can create a fountain of youth of sorts by making benefical changes to our lifestyle.  These changes not only slow down the aging process, or at the very least the most obvious signs of it, but also put more zip in our stride.

And so the woman who decides to adopt an anti aging lifestyle not only looks better – she also feels better. That’s the point of my work summed up in one sentence.

Get Up And Move get up and move to stay looking young

A sedentary lifestyle does more to accelerate the process of aging than any other factor. Lying on the couch for hours on end certainly weakens muscles and decreases strength.  Getting off the couch may be the most important anti-aging strategy for the modern woman.

This does not necessarily mean that vigorous exercise at a gym should suddenly be part of a person’s routine. Regular exercise done at home, such as Yoga and Pilates, can pave the way to a longer life and great looks.

 

habits can also speed up the signs of agingDump What Ages You

Certain bad habits also speed up the appearance of aging, such as:  

Baking for hours and hours in the sun is just plain no good for you. Vitamin D requirements are met with 15 minutes per day; beyond that you are cooking your skin beyond it’s tolerance level.  Sunscreen should be used, increasing SPF when you’re going to be in the sun for extended periods of time, using certain medications, or using skincare products that increase photosensitivity.  

Smoking also ages skin with wrinkles around the eyes and the mouth. The decrease in oxygen intake is what initiates excellerated aging and that will eventually show in the appearance of your skin, hair and overall health.  

 

Yes, You Are What You Eat you are what you ead

An improper diet also contributes to aging in a similar way. Eating salty foods or foods high in fat content does not help when undertaking an anti-aging program.  These unhealthy foods frequently cause heart disease or hypertension.

Opting for fresh fruit and veggies instead of fried foods and sweets is smart.  And, the state of a woman’s health certainly shows on her face, so preventing health issues comes with more than one plus.
