Feel and Look Young at Any Age

Jul 3, 2008
Is age getting you down because you started to notice a few more grey hairs, your skin is not quite as firm as it used to be and those fine lines in your face have gotten a bit deeper? No one likes growing older. We would all like to remain youthful but none of us are impervious to the affects of age. Even if we opt for cosmetic surgery it is only a temporary fix. It does not stop or reverse the aging process. Perhaps some day someone will find a way to do so and it will be as easy as taking a pill or going to our doctor's office for a shot but until then we must accept the fact that we all age. But just because we get older it doesn't mean that we can't look and feel good.

There are many factors that affect the way we look and feel. Those factors include a person's state of health, diet, exercise, lifestyle, genetics and even attitude. Some people age better than others and many if not all of those factors can play a role in how a person ages. You may not have any say so over the genes that you inherit from your parents but you do have the option to make healthy choices in your lifestyle.

You can help yourself to age gracefully by eating a proper diet, exercising and getting adequate sleep. For example, fruits and vegetables are filled with vitamins and nutrients beneficial to your health both inside and out. Exercise is also a necessary component in maintaining good health and staying youthful longer. When you don't get sufficient sleep it shows in your appearance. When you skimp on sleep on a regular basis your skin becomes dull, you develop dark circles under your eyes and your general appearance makes you look older than your years. You need the proper amount of sleep each night. Sleep really is one of nature's beauty aids.

Protecting your skin against the harsh elements of sun, wind and cold is also necessary to maintain a youthful appearance. Moisturize your skin daily. It is important to keep your skin well hydrated by drinking plenty of water every day. The attitude you have about aging will also be affected by the way you perceive yourself. What do you consider as old? Do you feel that someone who is forty, fifty or sixty is old? Society has put such emphasis on youth and beauty that we can allow ourselves to be relegated to the realm of old age when we don't even feel as though we are old. Forget about societal standards. Age nor beauty do not determine the value of a being. Everyone is a valuable being at every age.

All things change. Our bodies change. We change our minds. We change as people due to our life circumstances yet we are still the same. Your body may look different at 16, 25, 35, 50 and so on, but inside you are still the same person. You are just progressing through the different life stages as we all do. So don't let age get you down. Age does not define you. The person you are within is ageless.
