Personal appearance is really only a small part of who we are Naturally we wish to make the best of ourselves, but we shouldn’t let “how we look” dominate our lives.  If we take the holistic approach and look after our whole body we can retain a youthful appearance, quite naturally, well into old age.

People who are fit and have a happy outlook tend to look and feel younger, and the funny thing is, if we like someone and are happy to be around them, we don’t care how they look.  Most of the problems we have with our appearance are generally only those perceived by ourselves, it’s amazing how little others notice, unless it’s glaringly obvious.

Beauty Tips

There are several things you can do to improve your personal appearance that won’t take a lot of time or too much energy.  So here are some more beauty tips in no particular order.

Posture

We’ve already covered walking as a great way to tone your whole body, however, while walking try to remember to keep a straight back and keep you head up.  Posture is very important, a straight back and shoulders pulls your stomach in, makes you look slimmer and takes years of your age.  Get into the habit of holding your head up as it will also tighten the neck muscles and reduce the double chin effect.

Skin

Drinking plenty of water and eating fruit and vegetables with a high water content will keep the skin plump and help to reduce wrinkles.  If you followed our advice in healthy eating, have a look at those prunes you soaked to see what happens to the wrinkles!

Creams and formulas to improve our skin and eradicate wrinkles are getting better by the day. Although surgery will remain popular for short-term results, more and more people are looking for a healthy alternative so they may stay younger healthier longer.

You should be aware that creams containing collagen do not work as claimed.  Collagen is a wonderful supplement, but can’t be absorbed through the skin.

Creams designed especially for the delicate skin around the eyes are a good idea, they help to make the wrinkles less noticeable. Face masks and exfoliating scrubs all help to keep the skin looking good.

Don’t spend too long in the shower or the bath, as this will dry you skin and cause an itchy flaky condition if taken to the extreme.  Use moisturizing soaps and gels, then pat yourself dry rather than harsh rubbing.

Good dental hygiene and care can’t begin too early and should be continued all through your life.  It’s important to clean your teeth at least twice a day, and floss regularly.  Make it a habit to eat foods such as crisp apples and raw carrots to massage your gums.

Avoid chewing gum as although some brands are recommended for cleaning teeth and freshening breath, it is bad for the stomach.  When you chew, the stomach starts to produce acid to help in the digestion of the food that is being chewed.  When the food doesn’t arrive in the stomach to absorb that acid, the acid is left in the stomach and will cause all sorts of havoc. Latest research shows chewing gum can also cause headaches.  Any way it is not a good look. If you need to exercise your jaw, eat an apple and smile!

Have a check up every six months and get a clean and polish at least once a year.  If you smoke you will need to buy toothpaste that has been especially formulated for nicotine stains.  Clean your toothbrush thoroughly after use and change it at least every three months.  Make sure you get sufficient calcium in your diet to keep your teeth healthy.   If you take care of your teeth there’s no reason why they shouldn’t last all your long life.
