How to age well.

Whether you’re in your 20s or 60s, now is the time to start caring for the future YOU.

We live long. We can expect to live longer lives than our parents and grandparents. We have more knowledge and information on how to increase longevity. We want to be in the best condition we can. I’m not only focusing on how we look, but on how our bodies and brains can bring us in to our 80s and 90s!

Don’t smoke:

Do I even need to elaborate?

Eat well:

A diet rich in vegetables, fish, chicken, beans and nuts is the healthiest.Eat lots of antioxidants like blueberries, kale, spinach, red cabbage, raspberries, and chocolate!

Avoid processed foods, carbs, sugar and palm oil. 

Exercise:

Regular exercise, including a 20 minute walk gets the heart rate up and decreases depression. You don’t have to be a gym rat, but regular modest exercise will help you live longer, be stronger and look better.

Eat less:

Calorie restriction has been shown over and over to increase longevity. Eating causes oxidative stress, so why not decrease the load?

Use the right products: ACE

Mom always said to wash your face. Remove the day’s grime. Nourish your skin to be healthy, radiant and glowing. Use a vitamin A derivative nightly to decrease wrinkles and increase cellular turnover.  Use antioxidants like C & E for daytime protection from the sun. Follow with sunscreen.

Use sunscreen:

The sun is our primary ager. It is the biggest cause of free radical damage which causes a break down of collagen fibers. Sun causes 90% of age-related skin complaints from wrinkles, discoloration, skin laxity, visible capillaries, and loose, rough skin.  Apply sunblock 365 days a year, whether its snowing or you’re staying indoors.
