Aging Begins at Birth
We begin to age from the time we are born. Aging is natural and irreversible but it can be slowed down.
Read on for tips that will help you to age slowly and gracefully
Importance of Exercise
The importance of exercise in keeping a person young cannot be stressed enough.
Do not forget to engage in 30 minutes of daily exercise if youthfulness is your goal
Maintain a Balance
As we grow older we need fewer calories so we have to balance between what we need and what we end up eating
Avoid Saturated Fats
Avoid food with high levels of saturated fat such as red meat.
On the other hand, a low fat diet is rejuvenating, especially one that is plant- based.
Kick the Butt
Avoid smoking and alcohol consumption as it can cause premature wrinkles and wreak havoc on a personís skin
Limit your sugar intake.
Sugar acts like an oxidant that produces free radicals and also brings about weight gain
Water Water Everywhere
Make sure you stay hydrated.
Drink 8-10 glasses of water every day for smooth and younger-looking skin.
Eat Well †Eat Right
Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables, especially the green and red variety. They act as anti oxidants and help to combat diseases associated with aging.
Take oral supplements containing vitamins and minerals regularly to revitalize your skin, fight against diseases and maintain youthfulness

Avoid the sun as 80% of aging is due to sun exposure.
Before stepping out do not forget to use a sunscreen with SPF 15-30.
Also wear those sunglasses!
Skin Care Routine
Follow the cleaning, toning, moisturizing (CTM) routine religiously.
Using an anti-aging cream with AHAs, vitamin C and E is also known to delay wrinkle formation.
Stress is anathema to youthfulness. Practice meditation or other relaxation techniques to eliminate stress
Snatch those 40 Winks
