take charge of your age
Aging may be inevitable, but the rate of aging is not. How we age, and how fast we age is up to us. “Only about 5 to 20 percent of the aging process has to do with our genes,” says Jonny Bowden, a nutritionist and author of bestselling book, “The Most Effective Ways to Live Longer.” The rest is up to us. The good news is the latest medical research shows it is possible to halt or even reverse the signs of aging. It’s never too late to get started.
Just as exercise, good nutrition and a healthy lifestyle can give you energy and vitality, so the right skin and hair care can maintain and even restore the smooth, fresh looking skin and robust hair that looks and feels the way you used to take for granted. The skin is your body’s largest organ, and like every other part of your body, if you take care of it, the results will be visible to you and the world around you.
There are some things you can, and should, do immediately to protect your skin. Limit your exposure to the sun. Stop smoking and drink plenty of water; skin becomes thinner and drier as we age, so keep it hydrated. The need for good nutrition, exercise and plenty of sleep doesn’t need to be repeated here. These are the cornerstones of any revitalization program, but lifestyle alone is not enough. The latest scientific discoveries can also help you turn back the hands of time.
