Yes, we all do!Is there anyone who doesn't want to look as good as they can,for as long as they can?
While there are some very quick fixes such as, minor to majorcosmetic surgeries, there are some less extreme measuresthat you can use to look and feel younger on a daily basis.
(1) Check your attitude!
How do you feel about life?
Is your life going the way you want it to?
Do you take responsibility for what you have created,good or bad?
How about accepting who you are?
Be grateful for what you have, family, friends, a job etc.Then do an assessment of the things you want to change, ifany.
Watch your self-talk, if you wouldn't say those things to others, don't say them to yourself!
Be aware of why you want to make any change in your life.It must be something you have committed to, else you willmost likely fail and add one more reason to criticize yourself.
(2)Know your nutritional needs!
What you eat has a huge impact on how you look and feel.
The foods you eat help make and maintain soft, smooth,glowing skin.
Wrinkle free skin is important in any anti-aging effort.
The recommended daily food requirements are good guidelines, butyou must know how to balance your food intake to keep yourbody performing at its best.
At any given age, we might need to boost specific nutrientsor hormones.
Get regular checkups!
Eat fresh fruits and vegetables as snacks, instead ofover-processed manufactured "fast foods".
Try not to rush your meals.
When food is not given enough time to be digested properly,it becomes a burden on your body, causing un-neccessary wearand tear and premature aging!
When was the last time you had some fun?
A good laugh?
If you cannot remember, it's been too long!
Even if you must laugh at yourself, find something to laugh about.
Old photos, old clothes you've kept that you will neverwear again, find something, anything.
What about pampering?
Done anything special for yourself lately?
A facial, or manicure?
In -home or at a salon, it doesn't really matter.
It's the time you spend just focusing on yourself that willmake you feel special and cared for.
We all need that!
(4)Be interested and interesting!
Yes, we are all short on time, we are busy people, but you mustmake time to be interested in others, your community, the world.You will find that is the only way to be interesting yourself.
Learn something new, a language, a new style of cooking or dance.Learn about a culture that's different than your own.
Ageless, interesting individuals always seem to want to know moreabout life.
Try not to pry or judge, just be open to sharing opinions andknowledge.
(5)Groomimg is ageless!
When did you last update your looks?
A new hair style or wardrobe is a very effective anti-agingtactic.
Today there are so many flattering styles of dressing, everyoneof us can find one that works perfectly for us.
Subtle changes in hair coloring can make you look years younger.
Lose a few pounds if you need to.
There is a diet that will work for you.
Find skin care that's right for your skin type.
Take care of your nails and teeth.
Beautiful well cared for hands is a must for you, if you wantto appear younger!
Anti-aging is more a matter of making the most of what you have,than the sporadic and temporary results gained by invasive andexpensive surgeries.
Agelessness is more about maintenance over the long-term thanany qick fixes.
Meaningful beauty is not just smooth skin (which is nice) but it isalso an outlook on life, your life.
Treat yourself and others with respect.
Balance your physical, emotional and spiritual life.
No one else can or will do it for you!
Get rest when you need it, play when you have the opportunity.
Own your emotions, accept responsiblity for your actions,apologise for your mistakes, give and accept praise gracefully.
One of the best ways to anti-age yourself is to not only lookgood, but to be pleasant and interesting to be around!

Beauty Sleep - Is It A Dream?
As women we know that a lack of sleep leaves us irritable; however most of us are unaware of the damage it may be doing to our skin? Besides being an essential component of a healthy lifestyle, getting 8 hours of sleep per night helps improve the texture and the luminosity of our skin. During the night the skin is restored from the harmful effects of daily stress. When we do not get the required sleep our skin suffers. This is especially noticeable in the fragile skin under the eyes. The under eye area is almost fifty percent thinner than the skin on the face. Sleepless nights leaves behind fine lines, dark circles or puffy bags. Cosmetic treatments can soften the effects of sleep deprivation but preventive medicine is the best cure. Eye treatments are limited in their ability and cannot reverse the stress that a lack of...(related: Beauty)
Beautiful Skin 101
Most women shy away from being called 'too sensitive.' But when the subject is kin, they're all too willing to wear the scarlet S. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, at least 40% of women believe they have sensitive skin, although most dermatologists report that only a fraction really do. Sensitivity "defined as skin that's prone to irritation from products, weather, or stress" is a real (albeit misunderstood) condition. It's not the same as an allergy. It means you have a lower tolerance for irritating ingredients, such as fragrances and dyes. The evil twist here is that the more skin reacts, the more sensitive it becomes. Imagine normal skin having a natural barrier like Saran Wrap. People with sensitive skin have a disrupted barrier all the time. But by identifying what disrupts tha...(related: Beauty)
