Ask any woman in their mid forties and they will refrain from telling you their true ages. Also, ask them what their number-one wish is, and most of them will say that it is to look like those forever young immortals depicted in Desperate Housewives.
From a scientific based approach, anti aging is the turnaround or slowing down of the natural aging process that occurs in the body. While there has been no technology developed that has actually reversed the procedure of getting old like that shown in a recent Hollywood film, ‘The Curious Case of Benjamin Button’, there definitely are some ways that allow us to slow down the route. The two major things that we can adopt in our lives in order to stay and look young is a healthy lifestyle, and knowing how to apply great makeup.
Avoiding the sun is a good way to allow the skin to remain looking young as excessive amounts of sunshine can cause wrinkles on the skin and lead to freckles and dark spots. Moisturizing your skin on a daily basis is also very important, so a product such as Younique Brilliant Daily Moisturizing Gel, made with natural silver, ginseng, and pearl powder from freshwater pearls, goes a long way to keep the skin hydrated and fresh.
A good diet provides us with all the nutrients that a body needs. This means that you have to eat a lot of vegetables, and fruits that will provide you with vitamins and antioxidants. Vitamins are substances that are necessary for the good condition of the body while antioxidants are substances that slow down the damage caused to other substances by effects of oxygen. For example, oranges are a good source of vitamin C, which is really good for skin.Yogurt has calcium and vitamin D which will enable the calcium to be readily absorbed into the body, even if you are of a mature age, because calcium usually stops depositing in the bones after you cross the age of twenty. Dark chocolate contains a lot of antioxidants and very less amount of sugar so it is advised to replace it in your diet with normal or milk chocolate, which has a huge caloric value. Also, fruits like strawberries and cherries are rich in antioxidants.
Of course, using makeup can drastically change the appearance of an individual. Applying the right products in the right way can take years off your look. For example, applying concealer at the edge of the eyes and making sure it has blended in finely can reduce the crow’s feet around your eyes, mask fine wrinkles and make you look young.
