Stay Sexy And Sizzling At Sixty - Articles Surfing
A lot of women believe that when they reach the age of sixty, their skin will be more wrinkly and sagging, their body will double in size, and the natural rosy glow that used to color their cheeks will now be replaced with brown spots and freckles. This may be true for many, but for some, 60 is just a number that represents their true age and nothing more. Take Goldie Hawn and Suzanne Somers for example, they maybe over 60, but they definitely look as if they just turned 31.
Cosmetic surgery is not always the answer to looking young. There are other ways to look sensationally sexy and sizzling even without botox and liposuction. If you want to stop the hands of time, read on and discover how you too can achieve that young looking skin and svelte body:
To Believe Is To See
No matter how much make up you put and how many anti-aging creams you use, they will not work effectively in making you look younger if you don't feel young. How you feel inside is usually what is seen outside. If you want to look younger, you need to feel and believe you look younger.
It would also be helpful if you laugh more often and have fun with your life. Go to a spa to relax, have a picnic with your friends, travel and visit places, spend time with your grandchildren, dance tango with a loved one, and indulge in a great book. These things are not frivolities; they are what will make you less tensed, happier and feel great.
Seek The Fountain Of Youth
You don't need to go far in order to find the fountain of youth because you have it in your kitchen. Water is the fountain of youth! Drink lots of water and keep your body hydrated. As people grow older, the ability to preserve water is reduced. Thus, you need to drink more. Remember, water does not only flush away toxins and waste, it also helps moisturize your skin from within.
Hide From The Sun
One of the major causes of age spots, wrinkles and other skin blemishes is the harsh rays from the sun. If you want to look older than your age, go ahead and bask under the sun. However, if you want to prevent freckles, liver or age spots, and wrinkles from popping out of your face and skin, better use an effective sunscreen or sun block with a high SPF.
It will also be wise to stay indoors from 10AM to 3PM because even if you do not see the sun, you can still be exposed to its deadly rays during the said period. If you need to go out, use a sunscreen, wear sunglasses, and bring an umbrella or a hat.
Exercise Is Key
Don't ever think that you can achieve a voluptuous body without breaking a sweat. Even if you have liposuction, you still need to exercise to make your flabby arms and stomach firmer. Besides, exercise is also good for your over-all fitness.
If you do not like to go to a gym, brisk walking for at least 30 minutes a day can already do miracles for your body. If walking and the gym bore you, you can probably enroll in a belly dancing class, Pilates program or probably train for mountain climbing. However, before you do strenuous exercises, you must consult with your doctor first.
If you have been eating burgers, fries, doughnuts and candy bars all your life, you probably look 10 years older than you are now. It is important to watch the food that you put in your mouth because your metabolism is already slowing down and eating junk food will not only make you fat, but it can also make you sick in the long run. So instead of fried chicken and chocolate decadent pie, choose steamed salmon with asparagus and an apple.
Help Is On The Way
You cannot reverse the aging process on your own. You need to use anti-aging creams and moisturizers to help bring back the suppleness and softness of your skin. Moreover, you also need supplements, such as Vitamin C, A and E, to help you fight the signs of aging. Just make sure you choose products that are all natural and safe.
