Aging Doesn't Have to be a Problem

September 30, 2014

Age is just a number.

Many times that is not the case with aches and pains making you feel your age or even older.

Wrinkles and sagging or dull skin cause you to look older, too. However, the right products and habits can help you look and feel younger.

Right Habits

The first step to looking and feeling your best is to develop the right habits.

Unfortunately, many women have let their good habits go while taking care of family. Even as an empty nester, it can be difficult to get back on track.

Another problem is that they may focus on habits that they used to keep, not realizing that their bodies have changed.

For example, you may be trying to eat healthy, but what is considered healthy changes with age. You probably don’t need as many carbs as when you were younger but may need more calcium or other nutrients.

The amount of sleep you need changes as you age, too.

The number of hours may decrease or you may find they increase because the quality has gone down. It’s always a good idea to ask your doctor what nutrients you need and how much and how many hours of sleep you should try to sleep.

Exercise needs change, but some type of activity is essential. Your joints may require you to seek out low impact workouts or even a brisk walk.

Being sedentary is never the answer because it can make you feel sluggish and tired, and older than you really are.

Anti-aging Products

Good habits can help you look and feel younger, but they often cannot erase effects from the past.

Some anti-aging products can make you look even younger than you do now. You may expect to have to spend a lot of money and invest in expensive products and makeup, but that is not the case.

As the article, “Virgin Coconut Oil: What Makers of Anti-Aging Products Hope You Don’t Know” states, natural skin is the most beautiful look of all. Helping it to look its best through safe and natural methods is more important than using a lot of fancy products.

This means keeping your skin hydrated with natural lotions.

Add a healthy glow that makes you look younger by using tinted lotions or self-tanners for a natural fake tan with no harmful side effects. Products with Retina-A can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and give you firmer skin.

Antioxidants are another important source to help you look younger.

Get them internally through foods and apply them topically to get the most benefits. They help prevent skin damage and may reverse some of the effects.

You can make your age just a number that tells nothing about the way you feel.

In fact, with the right care, you can even convince people that you are younger than your actual age.

When people ask how old you are, you can just smile and tell them to guess.
