Aging is natural and inevitable. However, you can make the choice of aging beautifully or not. Aging isn’t something to deny and get frustrated with, rather it is something to enjoy, where you will now have more time to yourself, to spend with family and do the things you love. How you age will be decided by the lifestyle you spent and the habits you had while you were young. Your skin and internal organs are preparing to go through the hormonal changes so staying fit and healthy is essential. So here are some things you can do.
- Take care of your face
Your face is the focal point of your entire body and unfortunately, the signs of aging appear first of all on the face. Wrinkles and dark circles around eyes, dark spots, and blemishes are very common signs. To prevent such signs, first wash your face regularly so that no dirt and excess oil retains on the skin. Use a very mild cleanser that will not burn the skin. Remember to use a moisturizer after cleansing since if any natural oils have been washed off, it needs to be restored. If your skin is very oily, use an oil-free moisturizer especially made for aging. Moisturizing will boost your skin and keep it hydrated. Dry skin has a higher risk of aging faster, so be mindful. Exfoliate your skin when needed to remove dead skin cells, showing off a fresher and brighter face.
- Change your style
If you have been too busy with the kids when you were in the middle ages, well now is the time to rethink your style as they are off to college. Cover up those greys by either using a natural color or you can spice things up by adding a few highlights. It’s never too old to try some color so go for what you like. If you’ve experienced hair loss, go to a hair transplant clinic in Singapore and regain your confidence. You can also go for a haircut and go through a complete makeover. Get rid of the boring long hair and go for shorter hair with bangs. Dress in bright colours and use accessories to your advantage to bring back youth.
It is essential that you work out at least 30 minutes a day. If you have been doing it for the past years, great! If not, you need to start now. Maintaining proper body weight will prevent many chronic diseases such as diabetes, arthritis or cancer. Go out for a light jog, join a yoga class or go cycling, to stay fit.
