  • "Have you noticed that every magazine you pick up lately has advertisements for the many ways we can look younger than our chronological years?"

    Yes!
    Yes I have noticed those advertisements, and I've also noticed that a LOT of them use models who are somewhere between the age of 19 and 35, and know NOTHING about wrinkles, aging skin or the challenges they pose!

    Not blaming the models, but the advertising agencies!!! Do they really think we're that stupid?!?!? - 11/4/2016 12:34:47 PM
  • I do many of these suggestions, already. I am VERY happy for this article. Water is my main 'trick' always at least 10 cups a day. I'm 'foggy" without it. I went to an office the other day, on business & she needed to know my age. I asked her to 'guess'. She guessed 15 years younger.! The comment in the beginning of this article about 'thinking' (my words) about my body, REALLY helps me. I have an affirmation, "My body responds as if I am 22 years old." I was VERY healthy then & feels good to me. I am many decades older, but it truly helps me! THANK YOU! - 11/4/2016 12:20:22 PM

    I'm 64, and I have embraced my wrinkles. To me, they are not a sign of old age, they are a sign of experience. I've earned each and every one of my wrinkles. My laugh lines show that I've had joy in my life, the vertical lines between my brows show that I've had stress that I've worked through and overcome.

    I feel really bad for people, especially women, who believe their self-worth comes from their looks. Everyone ages, everyone gets wrinkles.

    Why is it that when a man ages and gets wrinkles and grey hair - he looks distinguished? When that happens to a woman, she is said to have let herself go? It's time that double-standard is ended, once and for all.

    We are far more than our looks. - 11/4/2016 11:56:55 AM
  • @JMELE8 Yes it helps, i have tried it like 3 years ago and iím still using it. remember that you can no expect any miracles when you are ageing, especially donít trust any creams, serums etc. You need solve the problem from inside, not outside. This is one of a few things that helps and trust me I've tried millions of them because i need to look good/young for my job. And the brand you are talking about is great iím using the same. It is expensive, but quality products are not cheap and this is your beauty and health we are talking about. - 2/29/2016 4:53:35 PM
  • I'm a 32-year-old women, and already noticing forehead wrinkles and little lines beneath my eyes. I want to know what my real options are. This hurts me particularly because my beauty and especially my skin is really important for me (it is by far the part of me that I get the most physical compliments on). I think botox looks horrid and i reject it. I'm 32 for God's sake! I'm too young to be old! Has anyone here heard of this www.certifiedphytoceramides.com brand? Read a lot good reviews on the internet. Does it really help? - 2/29/2016 4:40:37 PM

    Thanks for posting the great suggestions! I've been doing a program of facial toning exercise (acupressure and massage) that's been a tremendous help in keeping my skin looking younger and I'm no "Spring Chicken"! Not only have I seen some pretty amazing improvements in my face and neck...it's relaxing, great for reducing stress and there are tons of other health benefits, too. Considering how well it works, I'm surprised more people don't suggest it but I highly recommend investigating in more detail for anyone who's looking for a great anti-aging "hack" that really works. This is the program I've been using:

    I agreed with most the ideas and recommendations in this article. A final thought from the Bible. Grey hair should be considered a badge of honor. If you lived so long to get grey then you must have some wisdom. I wouldn't trade my age now for my misspent youth for any amount of money. I only wished I had kept up with the fitness and eating better. - 5/4/2015 7:52:23 AM
  • I find this article highly offensive and insulting to those who have arthritis or other diseases. The article quite clearly implies -- in fact, near blatantly states -- that if you had made better lifestyle choices and had better habits, you would not have "x" disease. - 1/22/2015 12:12:26 PM

    Dear Ellen or Helen Goldman. You give some VERY BAD ADVICE. On page 1 you act like if you don't eat healthy and exercise that you going to grow old fast. And that's just NOT TRUE. #1 component on how you age is your genetics.
    And arthritis, my dear, you are SO wrong about arthritis. I was in my prime @ 39 and was hit with an auto-immune form of inflammatory arthritis. It had NOTHING to with what I ate, I was exercising all the time and was the healthiest I'd ever been. Gout, of course, is another story, it IS related to food.
    My mother had dementia, it was not caused by what she ate, she ate well her entire life. Was always fit and stayed the same size her entire life. Nor was it "brain exercise" related. It was from lack of Oxygen during an atrial fib episode. But we didn't know that until autopsy (what kind of dementia) and no one ever does until autopsy.
    No Doctor knows what causes auto-immune diseases, dementia's, cancers. But the most recent studies on cancer show it's genetics and bad luck. And you can probably say it's the same for most other diseases too. Except those truly linked to smoking or obesity.
    But you shouldn't publish LIES to try and make your point(s). There's tons of stuff to write about this time of year - pick one. - 1/5/2015 1:00:37 AM

    Good advice for health.Our skin and eyes should be protected from sun, as protection of eyes from sun is necessary,so we should wear sunglasses in the sun.I usually wear sunglasses when I out in sun,as I have made sunglasses collection from http://www.citysunglass.com/,they provide good quality of sunglasses. - 11/14/2014 11:47:47 PM
  • Good advice.
    This article hit all the right notes.
    I must be doing the right thing for so far aging well.
    I don't ware lots of makeup. wash with ivory soap. Always put lotion on,
    Use sun screen.
    drink lots of water.
    No smoke, drink.
    Sleep and rest.
    It also helps to have some fantastic genes.
    My Mom is almost 90 and looks 20 years younger.
    Gram lived to 96, when she passed people said how sad she went so early. no one realized she was 96.
    The most important thing for me is to be healthy. I don't mind aging, just keep my mind and health.
    Spark on.

  • Now this is a motivating article! I am aging gracefully so far, and I want to keep it that way into my old age. I'm doing many good things, but there is room for improvement. I have a nice, soft complexion, I don't use make up or cover it up and I want to keep it in good condition. When I lose my motivation to exercise and eat right, this will be it! I'll try harder at clean eating too. Sometimes convenience wins out though.

    Thank you! - 11/4/2014 7:12:58 AM
  • Run like you never ran before. Get the ticker going at a sustained rate with a long and slow run. Of course, you must work up to it starting with a walk-run, then a full out run after a week or two depending on your fitness level. Watch the weight drop - with a good diet, of course - and the energy level rise. Set a race goal. Remember, you are not out to win anything but to reach a goal for time and distance. After awhile with the breeze in your face, enjoyment will raise your mental health, too. - 1/30/2014 1:10:01 PM
  • Back again . . . I'm having difficulty understanding what you mean to say in this phrase: "Real food tend is more beneficial to your body and skin than supplements are" (on page 1 in the spark people article). - 12/9/2013 4:28:11 PM
  • Good article, thank you. - 9/15/2013 7:46:24 PM
