When it comes to aging, some people seem to have won the genetic lottery. They look and act immune to the effects of time. Some even appear to be getting better with age. It kind of makes you go hmmm… And wonder what exactly the secrets of looking healthy and vibrant are. What are the habits of highly effective anti-aging?
Never fear, you won’t be left hanging. Here is a list of 7 habits for highly effective anti-aging.
1) Take Care of Your Skin
Skin care tops every anti-aging list, and it’s all about sunscreen and moisturizing. Seriously. Sure, there’s other important stuff like exfoliating to help your moisturizer work better. An essential skin-care regimen is the best habit you can have to keep your skin looking radiant. Be sure to use sunscreen, and reapply appropriately (usually every 2 hours) if you are outdoors. Cleanse and moisturize in the morning and before you go to bed.
In addition to a basic skin-care regimen, take care of trouble spots such as dark under-eye circles, wrinkles, and dark spots with amino acid complex-infused skin-care products. Amino acid-based products provide a vast range of benefits for the skin and the SeroVital™ Skin Care line has just that.
2) Stand Up Straight (Yes, Your Mother Was Right)
Making sure you have good posture is another anti-aging strategy that can work wonders on how you are perceived. Stand in front of a full-length mirror and check your posture. Sitting or standing correctly is about more than looking younger, it also keeps your body functioning properly, another key to anti-aging.
And when you walk, make sure you are not stooping or leaning forward. If you are not sure, have someone watch you and give you feedback. To maintain good posture, keep your weight primarily on the balls of your feet, with your knees slightly bent and feet shoulder-width apart. Your arms should hang naturally at the sides of your body. Straighten your spine and pull your shoulders back. Tuck your stomach in and keep your head level. Now you are ready to face the day.
3) Exercise and Include Resistance Training
“Use it or lose it” is more than just a catchphrase. Adopting and sticking to an exercise program is one of the best ways to slow down the effects of aging. Resistance or weight training dramatically increases the rate at which you maintain and build muscle. It can reverse the body’s trend toward losing muscle as you age. It’s also good for your bones.
Do cardio – power walk, run, bike, swim – every day if possible, or at least four times a week. Improving or maintaining your cardio capacity can make you look and feel so much younger, and it has ripple effects on your skin health, heart health, digestion, and more. Also, exercises that increase flexibility, such as yoga or tai chi, not only keep you moving but also help keep aches and pains at bay. Together with your great posture, you’ll be moving like a 30–year-old.
4) Maintain a Healthy Diet
Yeah, most of us moan and groan over this one. However, particularly since you leave your 20s, diet is so important. However, don’t make the mistake of focusing only on calorie counts. Nutrition is just as important for anti-aging. Eating nutrient-rich, natural foods will give your body the fuel it requires to stay healthy. The most beneficial diets include fresh vegetables, fruits, and legumes – all foods that are naturally lower in calories and full of nutrients.
Model your diet after the Mediterranean or Okinawa diets. Also include a daily anti-aging vitamin, like SeroVital-AM Multivitamin for Women, that includes fish oil, CoQ-10, calcium, vitamin Ds, B-complex vitamins, and other vitamins and minerals to support skin health and brain function. Indulge every once in a while, but be sure every once in a while doesn’t become every day.
5) Take an Anti-Aging Supplement called SeroVital-hgh
Maintaining a healthy, balanced diet and exercise program will go a long way to keeping you looking young and fit, but supplementing with a human growth hormone (HGH) booster, called SeroVital-hgh can help. HGH is associated with reduced body fat, increased muscles mass, stronger bones, improved mood and energy, heightened libido, and reduced appearance of wrinkles. SeroVital-hgh nourishes your pituitary gland and increases your human growth hormone levels naturally. Do your research and get the facts here!
6) Keep Your Wardrobe Up to Date
This doesn’t mean dress like a teenager or follow all the trends. The goal is to look fashion forward, but not like you are “trying.” I’m not talking about fashion tips to make you look younger, nor am I talking about dressing age appropriately, whatever that means. If you can rock a miniskirt and feel confident doing it, go for it.
The rules are really the same at any age: find clothes that flatter your body type, address your perceived flaws, and find a good tailor. When your clothes fit you well, you look good, and when you look good, you feel good. There’s nothing that beats the feeling comfortable in your own skin.
7) Update Your Skin-Care Regimen
This is on the habit list because your skin-care regimen shouldn’t be “set it and forget it.” As you age, your skin goes through changes. Yes, still use sunscreen, that’s always a must. But you may begin to see crow’s feet, deeper wrinkles, and other signs of age. The products you use will become more specialized to address these issues.
Try using a day and night facial rejuvenation system, like the one from SeroVital™ Skin Care, that works together to prevent and correct the visible signs of aging. An amino acid-based compound can help visibly lift, tighten, and firm loose, saggy skin, dramatically improving the look of wrinkles and crow’s feet.
