Looking good at 50+
Aging may be inevitable but the rate of aging is not. Some people remain looking good even when they are 50 years and over while others may not be so old but look older than their age. Every body has its own genetic code. This genes can not change but our bodies adapt to them. While you can’t change your genes you can change whether they are turned on or off.
Consider your body as a city. Your immune system is like your police security agent, your arteries are like the roadways that can be blocked, clogged and worn down by years of abuse, your brain is like the energy grid that supplies power to the entire city, it can be knocked out here and there if you let neurological branches fall on your power line, your skin in many ways is the cities green space contributing to the over roll sense of beauty and vibrancy. Though the city may be old, you want it to look good.
Aging is Reversible
As the Mayer you have the power to make all the decisions about what is best for your city which is your biological city. You have the ability to live 35 percent longer than the expected life span. But this can only happen with a greater quality life. Restricting calories, increasing your strength and getting quality sleep are the three nature’s best anti aging medicines
What to do and eat to remain looking good at 50+
After the age of 30 our metabolism declines and so we are to be careful when choosing our food. Our bodies do not have much room for calories and sugar products. We should eat food that takes less energy to digest. Remember we want to look good not and not focusing on loosing weight. When you want to lose weight, you eat food that requires more energy to digest.
Looking good at 50 is not natural to most of us, it entails a lot of work, This involves the whole you. It is a holistic approach that includes diet, exercise, grooming sleep and rest.
At middle age your skin starts showing some signs of growing older. You may be lucky if you have spent most of your life indoors away from the harshness of the sun. We become sensitive about how we look and are more concerned of looking good. Women who are over weight tend to have youthful face as fatty layers tend to push out wrinkles from the side.
As we grow older the skin losses its underlying fat layer and we become thinner and more transparent. Spots and splotches may appear, blue veins are more noticeable. The skin losses some of its elasticity a stiffness trait of older connective tissue. These tissues are remarkably varied and adapted to different functions and are primarily supports and protective covering of the body and the internal organs. A connective tissue is so pervasive that if all the other substances were dissolved away the remaining connective tissue would be a near-perfect sculpture of the body.
One form of connective tissue is composed of parallel fibers that have great strength in transmitting pulls in one direction. This is present in ligaments that tie bones together and in tendons that connect bones and muscles.
The skin also losses moisture and become dry. This is most visible in the areas that are exposed. It is evidence that excessive exposure to sunlight speeds the normal aging process. We start getting wrinkles, the skin becomes so dry and the lower part of the leg starts peeling.
Wrinkles reflects changes that aging brings about in connective tissues. Time, exposure, drying and decreased flexibility allows the skin to fold in little pleats and crinkles. Some wrinkles can be smothered by your dentist who creates bad bite
The lower leg
As the years roll on circulation of the lower legs becomes less and less efficient. Blood pools and vessels are weaker, leaving the skin more susceptible to irritation from dryness, cold and friction of the rough clothes. This makes the lower part of the leg to start peeling and scalars leading to eczema and infection. Severe peeling may develop ulcers that can last long due to poor blood circulation. You may also notice some brown sports around your ankles that seems not to go away. This is as a result of leaking blood vessels and some impairment of circulation. This is another important reason to keep the skin in the lower part of your leg soft.
Taking care of dry skin is very necessary. In middle age skin tends to be dry and thus you need to have a cleansing routine that will include a mild soap and application of cream. Apply grease or cream to wet skin as it will penetrate more deeply and thus it is desirable. Lanolin has continued to be a favorable cream though there has been more refined commercial products with heavier feel. Always keep a good grease, cream or lotion in the basins and sinks. This way you can always apply a small amount after washing when the skin is wet.
We should start preventing the wrinkles at an early age of our life. Bathing with cream soap, use of sun screens and massaging our skin with hydropholic salves that take up water is a good way of preventing our skin from wrinkles. Besides all this we must develop a habit of drinking a lot of water to keep our body from dehydration.
To add years to your life you must add life to your years. This is by lowering the risk for all diseases. As we grow older our systems deteriorate slowly and we become vulnerable to diseases. If we slow the aging of our cells and prevent diseases we enjoy a higher quality and long life. Boasting your immune system will ensure that you not only look good at 50 but you also feel good
