Only kids want to grow older, but for adults, time will best us all. It slays kings, ruins towns, and beats high mountains down – our skin elasticity can’t hold out forever. However, we can choose to age with grace, and accept our golden years with dignity and grace. For how to do that best, follow these tips for aging gracefully.
Keep Your Body Healthy
One of the best ways to age well is to maintain a healthy body, and keeping active is the way to go about it. However, that is not to say it must be strenuous; experts say that a few hours of moderate aerobic activity a week, complimented by muscle training twice a week is more than enough for those over 65. A good diet is also crucial, so maintain a full compliment of greens in the crisper.
Keep Up Your Skincare Regimen
What exercise and diet can’t cure, a good skin care regimen can; visible signs of aging will come, and there’s not much activity and and healthy eating can do about that. If you have a skin care regimen, which includes such things as lotions anti-aging creams, you’ll want to maintain it. If you don’t have such a regimen, consider getting started on one. Minimally-invasive procedures such as chemical peels and Juvederm can also be used to compliment your skin care plan.
Don’t Hide Your Age
Aging gracefully isn’t just about the physical side of things, but also the mental side. Feeling good about yourself and your age will pay dividends in how you come across to others. Feeling good about your age and your body will make you feel good about yourself, and those good vibes will actually help you come across with more vitality. Don’t hide your age, or be ashamed of it – be proud of it!
Keep these tips in mind, and you’ll look radiant and turn heads will into your golden years. For more information about anti-aging treatments available to you, contact Dr. Paul Benien’s offices for a consultation.
