Ever since Eve took that first bite of the apple, the human race has been
obessed with beauty.

The truth is we begin the aging process just as soon as we pop out of the
womb. Every day of our lives our bodies slough off and regenerate new
cells. The speed at which that process takes place when we are children
is vastly different as we get older.

Every day you are bombarded daily with commercial messages and beauty
tips that attempt to lure you into believing that the most recent miracle
drug is just what you need to fight off the ravages of Mother Nature.

We are living longer as a whole. Singularly, that can be a curse or a
blessing, depending on your perspective.
The best route to natural beauty and healthy skin is to take care of what
you have. Sounds simple, doesn’t it? The truth is that your skin takes a
beating from the environment every single day. Here are some of our
favorite beauty tips for keeping your skin fresh and healthy:

1: Stay hydrated and do it with plenty of water! That does not mean soda,
caffeine or any other type of liquid, even if it is low cal. Soda (even
diet soda) has a high concentration of sodium. Sodium retains fluids. You
need fluid that will hydrate and flush your body free of toxins. Make
sure you are drinking at least 8 glasses a day!

2: Protect your skin from harmful ultra violet (UV) rays. We all love the
sun. We love being in it and we love having a beautiful tan. The truth is
you can poison yourself with too much sunshine. UV rays cause skin cancer
and if that isn’t bad enough it causes your skin to age faster than it
should, contributing to unsightly wrinkles. If you must play in the sun,
make certain you are using an adequate sun screen. Don’t leave home
without it!

3: Keep your skin clean. Use a soft warm cloth. Skin does not require
scrubbing. You will do more harm than good if you do.
4: The best cure for wrinkles is to never have them in the first place!
If you are like most of us, you didn’t listen to your Mom when she tried
to tell you to stay in the shade, stand up straight and stop squinting!

5: Eat healthy. Knowing how and what to eat, can make a huge difference
in how you feel. Improper eating habits can cause depression, weight
gain, illness and an overall lethargy.

Weight gain causes your skin to stretch. As you get older, it loses it's
elasticity and you're left with sagging skin.
The best solution to this is to maintain a proper weight.

A rule of thumb for eating habits are...don't eat more calories than you
consume. Don't go one single day without doing something extra and
physical for at least 30 minutes per day. This can be three ten minute
walks. Or 30 minutes of vigorous aerobics, or 12 minutes of weight
lifting and 18 minutes of walking.

6: Don't worry, be happy. A happy outlook appears to trigger the release
of endorphins. Endorphins relax the cardiovascular system and cytokines
which alert the immune system to pay attention in detecting abnormalities
like cancer cells. Listen carefully to yourself. If you have put yourself
down since childhood, over a lifetime, negative subliminal messages can
take their toll by turning you into a pessimist. Spend one week writing
down the phrases you use in your “self talk.” Chances are you will find
that you repeat a dozen or so phrases over and over again that reinforce
that negative image. If you know about them, you can change them. Outer
beauty and inner joy go hand in hand.

Here are a few quick tips for increasing joy, hope and optimism that will
work no matter what your age:

Make a list of at least 50 great things that happen to you every day.

Laugh a lot. You’ll heal your body and your mind.

Discover a new challenge each month.

Try meditating for just five minutes each day.

7: Sex After 50 – Ha! How many of you jumped ahead to this section?

The importance of physical intimacy actually depends on the couple. An
alarming number of men used to give up on sex after 60 and many women
used to feel that their sex life ended with menopause. Thankfully, that
is no longer the case.

Sex at middle age can actually become better and more satisfying than
ever before. Maturity gives a couple more experience in lovemaking. The
children are usually grown and left home. The pressures of building a
career and day to day life are usually less stressful than in younger
years.

Is beauty really skin deep?
The answer is yes and no. It’s a paradox, isn’t it? True beauty begins
from the inside out. Don’t you wish there was some way to “wriggle your
nose” and regain that soft skin you had as a child? Well, until someone
comes up with the true “Fountain of Youth” we are stuck with what we
have.

Just remember that getting older doesn't have to mean getting old.
