Most of us women are tuned into our looks from an early age. As we age, we are more tuned into the subtle signs of aging than men are. And we worry about them a great deal. But there are many ways to keep age at bay.
Of course, you can do nothing about the chronological clock, but you can do much to slow down aging in your body, to control how the natural hands of time work on your body. In short, there are many things you can do so you age gracefully.
Let’s look at the top 4 anti aging tips for women.
Our age shows first in our face, so be sure you take good care of your skin. Use a high-quality cleanser and a good quality wrinkle cream or moisturizer.
Although exercise, diet and other things are important to your anti aging strategies, the most important thing you can do is take care of your skin first and foremost. If your skin looks young, taught and supple, the rest of you naturally will, too.
Exercise is beneficial to our bodies in so many ways, but as you age, it helps to keep everything looser, less achy and it helps your skin stay firm. It helps your mood, which in turn benefits you in many ways (and a good mood generally leads you to make better lifestyle choices).
Just make sure that if you like to get your exercise out of doors that you take care of your skin while you do it (wear a hat and sunscreen, for example).
It seems like it always comes back to diet and exercise, doesn’t it? And that’s for a good reason. If you eat right, and exercise, your body will age better. It’s a simple formula, and yet many of us don’t conform to it well.
A diet that’s good for anti aging purposes will include a wide variety of fruits and vegetables, foods that are low on the glycemic index, a solid (but moderate) amount of nuts, the right kinds of fish and a limited amount of sugar, white flour and other “white” foods.
When you eat a good diet, you naturally get a good deal of water, which is great for your skin, and you will find that your skin is brighter and tighter than when you don’t eat a good diet. In addition, a good diet that’s full of a mix of good foods will provide you with the right amounts of iron, protein and fiber. These are all things essential to women’s nutrition in particular.
Drink a lot of water. Haven’t we heard this before? Water is essential for many reasons. It flushes all the toxins out of your body, it keeps your skin looking bright, and being well hydrated helps to keep your energy at a high level.
There are different schools of thought about how much water you should drink in any given day, but consider 64 ounces to be the bare minimum you should drink to get the right hydration level in your body.
So there you go.
There’s no need to become panicked about the thought of aging. If you take care of your body and your skin, age won’t get you as soon as it might otherwise. You’ll age gracefully and in a way that makes other people wonder what you do to stay looking so young.
