Stay Youthful, Age Gracefully
May 02 , 2013

Aging is inevitable but thereís such a thing as aging gracefully! 

Last year, I saw an episode of doctors and I was astonished at how these Divas of the silverscreen looked so great after so many decades of hard work and paparazzi. Trust me, thatís hard work! Look and feel young at any age! Hollywood film stars Diahann Carroll, Dyan Cannon and Jacqueline Bisset reveal the secrets of their eternal youth some of which I will share with you plus some more. Secrets that Iím positive screen goddesses like Joke Sylva, Bimbo Osunkoya, Patti Boulaye all use to keep them young and glowing!

In no particular other, here are a few beauty secrets that will keep you young and beautiful way into old age.

********************

Relax. The less you stress, the longer you live, the longer you stay beautiful. 

Drink Water. Drink loads of water. One of the worst enemies of a flawless skin is lack of moisture, both inside and out. You drink loads of water as well as use moisturizing agents. Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the body but the levels in our bodies decrease as we age, which hinders the skinís ability to retain moisture and leads to wrinkles so pumping the body with lots of water will go a long way to reduce the aging effect.

Donít forget your vegetables! I know you thought that was over Ė people telling you how good veggies are and how you shouldnít throw your veggies away. 

Use Sun Screen. Itís crazy but so many women still donít use sunscreen! The use of sunscreen canít be overemphasised. Ultra Violet A Rays = Aging rays. Dr. Jay Kulkin opines that ĒYou have to use a sunscreen that protects against UVA and UVB rays every day, and the more you use, the better.Ē Sunscreen will definitely prevent premature signs of aging. Slather yourself in sunscreen today!

Drink Tea. An antioxidant powerhouse! Green tea, black tea, or unsweetened tea, ANY TEA! Tea improves the immune system and replenishes bacteria in the body. Case studies have shown that the low cholesterol has lowered cancer rates and heart attacks. Try not to take your tea with a lot of sugar though because that can lead to not just bad skin but other health-related problems on the long run. 

Eat right. This will definitely help keep away those undesirable functions associated with aging: heart disease, high blood pressure, arthritis, diabetes, and so on. Cut down carbs. Eat more vegetables, legumes etc. 

Exercise. Exercise. Exercise is good for your heart and makes you look younger, toned and does wonders for your self-esteem!

FinallyÖ.

Love. Love helps you stay young at heart, says Jane Fonda. Jane Fonda is looking absolutely magnificent at 75 years old. Jane is in good shape and really beautiful as always.Ē The woman said it all! Love has a way of bringing out youth. So whether itís a Dog, a cat, your significant other or your children, LOVE!
