Healthy Tips for Anti-Aging

Posted at January 16, 2012 | By : | Categories : Healthy Living Tips | 0 Comment

Everywhere we turn we see advertisements for anti-aging products and supplements. Some, like those that involve cosmetic surgery or chemical injections, are very invasive. Others, like creams and lotions are simply expensive – not to mention full of nasty chemicals.  Some of these solutions appear to work and some are simply a waste of cash. There are some things you can do to remain healthy while naturally slowing the appearance of the aging process. Here are some you may want to keep in mind.

Healthy Diets Equal Healthy Skin

You know the old saying, “you are what you eat?” Well, it's true. The healthier your diet the healthier your skin will look. Think about it. Packaged, manufactured foods contain very little in terms of vitamins and nutrients. Fresh foods, especially fruits and veggies, have the vitamins, minerals and nutrients your body needs to keep it healthy from the inside out. This doesn't mean you can't have a slice of pizza or bar of chocolate every once in a while. Focus on making healthier choices and your entire body will thank you.

Don't forget to drink plenty of water, too. Dehydration leads to drawn skin that can become wrinkled and marred over time. The more hydrated you are, the better your skin will look and feel.

Make Time to Reduce Stress

Stress can have huge impacts on your overall health and wellness, especially as you get older. It can not only affect your physical health but can take a toll on your overall appearance as well.

Stress is natural, so we're not saying you can eliminate it altogether. What you can do is make some time to treat yourself to relaxation. Get a massage, take a bath, read a book, or go for a leisurely walk. Slow down, leave your responsibilities behind for a bit, and spend some time thinking about – well – nothing. You may even want to try meditation. Studies have shown that those who meditate tend to look younger than they are – mainly because they're calmer and more relaxed!

Shaklee's Solutions to Anti-Aging

Of course, Shaklee does have a couple of anti-aging products you can incorporate into your lifestyle without compromising your health. The first is Vivix, a decadent nutritional formula containing both resveratrol and a proprietary phytonutrient blend.   The phytonutrient blend includes muscadine grapes which are incredibly potent and contain high levels of polyphenols, ellagitanins, and other incredible antioxidants. The ingredients work together to defend your cells against the aging process while providing them with increased energy and a better ability to repair themselves. The product has no sweeteners, preservatives, or artificial flavors and might just become one of your favorite parts of the day.

If you're looking for a skin-care therapy, Shaklee has also created an incredible line of skin products known as Enfuselle. These products work together not only to prevent aging but to reverse some of the effects it has already had on your skin. By combining a specific series of nutrients and antioxidants, Enfuselle gives your skin the tools it needs to cleanse, repair, and protect its cells. Many users have seen drastic results after using the line for less than a month.

There is no reason for your diet, stress, or uncontrollable free radicals to take such a toll on your skin's appearance. Get in touch with me to discuss some of the things you can do to slow the aging process. I'm always happy to help!
