“As long as I get to keep on aging, I’m pretty lucky. Not everybody has the opportunity to grow old.” – Cameron Diaz
No matter how old, you’ll always look phenomenal; as long as there’s light in you, age has got nothing on that face, that body, or that mind.
But to embrace the upcoming years gracefully, we need to do everything in our power to keep ourselves healthy, thriving and positive.
Aging is inevitable, but the way we take and treat it, that’s in our control.
Your 40s should be the beginning of a life chapter dedicated to taking even greater care of yourself from the inside out and living a fuller life.
Skin and Ageing
As we age the fine lines, sunspots, dryness, redness and other unpleasing elements seem to be everywhere (they’re not, promise).
The good news for everyone who’s 40+ is that skin care technology has advanced so much that you can quickly look 35 when you’ve turned 45 or even 50!
Apart from cosmetic surgery that’s long gone from being popular to becoming a norm, there are plenty other, healthier lifestyle adjustments to help control the clock.
Here are a few:
No more junk food cheat days that extend from a cheat day to a cheat week, month and a cheat year.
Say no to more sodas and excessive wine drinking (yes, wine’s healthy but not that healthy).
Empty calories are the worst enemy of our physical and emotional wellness, and they negatively impact the skin in more ways than you know.
Reduce alcohol intake, quit smoking and stay away from energy drinks.
If you want your skin to glow, treat it to a healthy diet of veggies, fruits, whole grains, lean proteins, tea, water and good fats.
Eating healthy is essential for getting enough nutrients and healthy aging.
Leave your excuses to someone else, and – as Meryl Streep would put it “Start by starting.” Daily exercise is essential, especially a high-intensity interval workout that increases blood flow, gets your whole body moving and gives your skin that youthful you adore.
Plus, as you exercise, you sweat out the toxins, leaving your skin smooth and silky to touch. If you are strained for time and can’t make it to the gym, make sure you walk at least 15,000 steps a day, which is the recommended minimum.
Start Taking Vitamins
Say “Yes” to shiny, glossy hair, healthy-looking skin, and gut control by taking vitamins and anti-aging supplements.
If you are 40+, regular vitamin intake will improve your immune function, boost your energy levels, fight inflammation and do wonders for your mood.
Sleep Like the Sleeping Beauty
You can use the best, most expensive skincare products and they won’t do a thing to your skin if you are tired. The skin regenerates during sleep and restores its elasticity and firmness. Even a quick nap can help! However, if you want the benefits of sleep right where you can see them – on your face, aim to sleep 8 hours nightly. You’ll love the result as it will be a porcelain complexion, firm jawline, no lines, and so much more.
Consult a Cosmetic Dermatologist
Paired with a set of healthy habits, a comprehensive skin care regimen will make all the difference for your skin. Consult a cosmetic dermatologist for the best skin treatment for your skin type, and enjoy the restoration of your skin’s elasticity, glow, and tightness.
Embracing healthy choices is the best way to restore your youthful, radiant glow and admire the person looking back at you in the mirror.
