7 Beauty Tips for Looking Younger

Ever since Eve took that first bite of the apple, the human race has Benn obsessed with beauty.

The truth is we began the aging process just as soon as we pop out of the womb. Every day of our lives our bodies slough off and regenerate new cells. The speed at which that process takes place when we are children is vastly different as we get older.

Everyday you are bombarded daily with commercial messages and beauty tips that attempt to lure you into believing that the most recent miracle drug is just what you need to fight off the ravages of Mother Nature.

We are living longer as a whole. Singularly, that could be a curse or a blessing, depending on your perspective. The best route to natural beauty and healthy skin is to take care of what you have. Sounds simple, doesn’t it? The truth is that your skin takes a beating from the environment every single day. Here are some of my favourite beauty tips for keeping your skin fresh and healthy:

  1. Stay hydrated and do it with plenty of water! That does not mean soda, caffeine or any other type of liquid, even if it is low calories. Soda (even diet soda) has a high concentration of sodium. sodium retains fluid. You need fluids that will hydrate and flush your body free of toxins. Make sure you are drinking at least 8 glasses a day!
  2. Protect your skin from harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays. We all love the sun. We love being in it and we love having a beautiful tan. The truth is you can poison yourself with too much sunshine. UV rays cause skin cancer and if that isn’t bad enough it causes your skin to age faster than it should, contributing to unsightly wrinkles. If you must play in the sun, make certain you are using an adequate sunscreen. Don’t leave home without it!
  3. Keep your skin clean. Use a soft warm cloth. Skin does not require scrubbing. You will do more harm than good if you do.
  4. The best cure for wrinkles is to never have them in the first place! If you are like most of us, you didn’t listen to your mum, when she tried to tell you to stay in the shade, stand up straight and stop squinting!
  5. Eat healthily. Knowing how and what to eat, can make a huge difference in how you feel. Improper eating habits can cause depression, weight gain, illnesses and overall lethargy. Weight gain causes your skin to stretch. As you get older, it losses its elasticity and you’re left with sagging skin. The best solution for this is to maintain a proper weight. A rule of thumb for eating habits are: Don’t eat more calories than you consume. Don’t go one single day without doing something extra and physical for at least 30 minutes per day. These can be three ten minutes walk. Or 30 minutes of vigorous aerobics or 12 minutes of weight lifting and 18 minutes of walk.
  6. Don’t worry, be happy. A happy outlook appears to trigger the release of endorphins. Endorphins relax the cardiovascular system and cytokines which alert the immune system to pay attention to detecting abnormalities like cancer cells. Listen carefully to yourself. If you have put yourself down since childhood, over a lifetime, negative subliminal can take their toll by turning you into a pessimist. Spend one week writing down the phrases you use in your “self-talk.” Chances are you will find that you repeat a dozen or so phrases over and over again that reinforce that negative image. If you know about them, you can change them. Outer beauty and inner joy go hand in hand.

Here are a few quick tips for increasing joy, hope and optimism that will work no matter what your age:

Make a list of 50 great things that happen to you every day.

Laugh a lot. You will heal your body and your mind.

Discover a new challenge each month.

Try meditating for just five minutes each day.

7. Sex after 50. Ha! How many of you jumped ahead to this section? The importance of physical intimacy actually depends on the couple. An alarming number of men used to give up on sex after 60 and many women used to feel that their sex life ended with menopause. Thankfully that is no longer the case. Sex at middle age can actually become better and more satisfying than ever before. Maturity gives a couple more experience in lovemaking, The children are usually grown and left home. The pressure of building a career and day to day life are usually less stressful than in younger years.

Is beauty really skin deep?

The answer is yes and no. It’s a paradox, isn’t it? True beauty begins from the inside out. Don’t you wish there was some way to “wriggle your nose” and regain that soft skin you had as a child? Well, until someone comes up with the true “Fountain of Youth” we are stuck with what we have.

Just remember that getting older doesn’t have to mean getting old.
