As you grow older, you may not feel as spry as you once did
First of all, take better care of your body. True beauty starts from the inside out. Eat more veggies and less, if any, red meat. Take on foods rich in antioxidants, like berries, and Omega-3's, like salmon. Whole grains like oatmeal and wheat bread will do your body good. Lower your sodium intake to decrease water retention. One important step we often miss is taking vitamins. A daily multivitamin is absolutely essential to take for daily health. Moreover, hydration is of the utmost important. At minimum we should drink 8-10 glasses of water daily.
Exercise at least three times a week for 45 minutes. The exercise doesn't have to be strenuous or exhaustive. You can start by walking and ramp up to a light jog or step aerobics. Increase other activity as well. Park further away from the grocery store when you go shopping. Take the stairs instead of the elevator.
Now that we have discussed how to feel better on the inside, what can we do to feel better on the outside? Going to the spa is a great way to get started. At this one-stop-shop you can get skin rejuvenation, a new hairdo, waxing services, a massage, and a tan. This list could go on and on. At minimum, opt for a facial and a manicure and pedicure. These are important features, especially for a woman. You want your skin to be soft and supple and your face to be taut. A microdermabrasion or chemical peel will do wonders to firm and lift the skin on your face.
Also, make sure you get your hair done. There is nothing like a fresh hairstyle to make you feel like a million bucks. Get some cute layers or some nice highlights, or spring for both.
Another enhancer for your appearance is a healthy, vibrant smile. Go to the dentist office or get a teeth whitening kit to use at home. Pearly whites are an incredible way to boost your confidence and your smile power. Those home teeth whitening kits you can pick up over the counter are an inexpensive and convenient way to polish your look. However, if you are up for it, some beauty spas can give you the best teeth whitening results you can get.
Finally, act like you mean it. Looking and feeling great truly comes from within and whether you get a full face lift, work out religiously, or purchase best teeth whitening money can buy, you have to reach within to find the self-assurance that you need.
