7 Ways To Age Gracefully
Slowing down the aging process is a challenge both for men and women. However, women strive harder to make themselves look ‘age-appropriate’. For the same purpose, there are some things you can do to make the process easier for you and to make yourself look more graceful. Read on to know how you can age gracefully.
An unhealthy body never looks attractive, especially when one gets older. Majority of your health problems immediately get reflected on your skin. The look of your skin greatly affects how young you look. So eating right is the key to aging gracefully and having a fresh look in your senior years. Supply your body with all the vitamins, antioxidants and minerals it needs. Do not stuff it with too much of fats.
2.Take care of skin
Clean, moisturize and nourish – the three golden rules of proper skin care. Pay special attention not only to your facial skin, but also to your hands, neck, shoulders and back. These are the areas of your skin which give out your age. Also, the skin under your eyes is very tender and thin. Thus, you should take good care of your skin all your life.
3.Lead an active life
When you are active, your heart circulates blood normally throughout your body. This provides your body with the proper nourishment. Movement keeps your muscles toned, bones strong and your skin remains firm which makes you look fit and healthy.
4.Cut down on alcohol
Alcohol dehydrates your body and also deprives you of a fresh look. It even takes away vital minerals and vitamins. Reduce alcohol intake.
