4 Simple Tips To Defy Your Age

1)Quality of Sleep Counts

Poor sleep has more of an effect on your body than you may know. There is a direct connection between poor sleep and accelerating aging, especially of the skin. Studies have proven poor sleep quality can create twice as many signs of aging as those who sleep well.

It’s easy to admit that you need more sleep. But there are a few ways you may be sabotaging your sleep. Focus on improving the quality of your sleep rather than attempting to get more hours of shut-eye if that is not a realistic goal. Also, avoid looking at your smartphone, laptop or tablet sixty minutes before you go to sleep. Switching your phone to airplane mode while you sleep so you don’t get interrupted is also a good idea. Eat dinner earlier and consume sweet potatoes, bananas, and whole, unrefined carbs like brown rice. These are all sleep-promoting foods.

2)Diet Matters

As we just mentioned, diet can help you sleep better. But did you know your diet can age you just as much as smoking or too much exposure to sunlight? Just as chronic diseases aren’t natural, neither is premature, accelerated aging in the many forms it takes, such as dull skin, cloudy eyes, or chronic fatigue. Of course, skin may naturally wrinkle, but this does not have to happen prematurely. While genes can play a role, the rate at which you age can be directly affected by your lifestyle.

A diet rich in foods that boost your circulation are vital for maintaining healthy, smooth skin. Choose citrus fruits, warming spices and dark chocolate because they all possess effective circulation-boosting properties. A practical way to get your diet back on track is to drink one daily smoothie made of 70 per cent greens and 30 per cent fruit with lots of lemon juice. It’s like eating seven salads, but the blending is almost like a pre-digestion for your body so it doesn’t have to work so hard to absorb all the antioxidants and minerals. And the vitamin C in the lemon juice helps you to absorb all the plant-based iron in the greens.

3)Attitude Is Everything

At the end of the day, you can do a lot of things to look and feel your best to defy your age. But when it comes to living a long and happy life, attitude is everything. Who wouldn’t want to live to be 100 and feel and look thirty? A big part of successful anti aging is attitude. Becca Levy of Yale University has done research which indicates that individuals with an internalized positive image of aging live on average 7.5 years longer than those with a negative bias.

What this means is that in order to increase longevity we should embrace aging while doing what we can to look and feel our best.  Aging has its perks. We just have to uncover them. Wisdom. Experience. Contentment. Don’t we all hope to live a long, healthy, purpose-filled and fun life? We can, and we can do it looking and feeling our best.

4)Medical Aesthetics to Correct & Protect

When it comes to anti aging the best approach is through medical aesthetic skin care. And with medical aesthetics, the underlying premise is to correct and protect your skin. The best approach to anti aging is to take care of skin concerns before they happen, or even just as they’re happening to keep your skin from aging. What’s great about medical aesthetics, is that it helps both men and women defy their age so they can look and feel their best.

The key to looking and feeling great with anti aging is finding ways to make small changes to your lifestyle. Anti aging is an attitude. It’s a great tool you can use to defy your age. But you don’t have to drop everything and radically change your life to defy your age. It’s really about layering in what works for you.

It can be something as simple as starting to wear sunscreen in the morning whether it’s cloudy outside or not, which can help to protect your skin from aging. Or it could be something like scheduling your monthly Photofacial to gradually eliminate the spots and freckles that you are tired of covering up with makeup.  Try adding a daily smoothy, and make a conscious effort to improve the quality of your sleep.
