We don?t mind looking our own age ? and we?ll accept it if you tell us we look younger! ? but we certainly don?t want to look older than our years.
At the same time, we don?t have a zillion bucks for Botox. What can we do?
Check out these 15 tips for aging gracefully.
#1: Eat plenty of fruits and veggies. A healthy diet is key to looking your own age!
#2: Take a daily multivitamin, even if you?re a healthy eater. Today?s fruits and veggies contain fewer vitamins and minerals than ancient fruits and veggies, thanks to modern-day mass-production methods. Counteract this deficiency by taking a daily vitamin.
#3: Give your eyes a break! Limit TV and non-work-related Internet to an hour a day.
#4: Avoid fried foods, which harm your skin from the excess oil content.
#5: Hydrate! Drink lots of water.
#6: Use skin creams supplemented with vitamins A, C and E.
#7: Limit your foundation. Too much can clog your pores.
#8: Exercise daily. It boosts circulation and cell turnover.
#9: Meditate, practice yoga, or do any other healthy activity that helps you reduce stress.
#10: Quit smoking.
#11: Drink tea, which contains antioxidants.
#12: Wear sunglasses. The UV rays can harm the delicate skin around your eyes.
#13: Eat ?good fats? in nuts and avocados. These keep your skin soft and your brain healthy.
#14: Get 8 hours of sleep each night.
