    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

    Good article, but can't say I haven't learned anything from it as I already knew the info. But for those who don't, it's good advice.

    I would only add don't dump your supplements. Although I've recently started whole food vities, I still continue the anti-oxidant vites A, C, E. Hey, doesn't hurt. One vitie maker puts them all in an Anti-oxidant vities supplement.

    I'm 71 and look years younger. When folks ask me how, I answer: Vitamines and Exercise. - 7/27/2013 7:30:21 PM
  • Great article. On your next version, I hope you discuss how all those bad habits affect the brain, starting at an early age, but NOW is the time to fix it, to exercise, to eat fruits and vegetables, etc. in order to have a healthy brain as we age. - 6/21/2013 5:06:49 PM

    Great article. Very true info. My mom is 76 and she looks and acts like she is in her 50's. She has a young mindset. She dresses tastefully and even though she is retired, she gets out daily and associates with people. I am trying to learn for her! Spark On! - 6/7/2013 3:18:21 PM

    Thank you, Ellen Goldman--- for this very comprehensive list that can enhance our lives. We all have genetic traits, but all of these suggestions can be of great benefit. I am pleased to see the emphasis on oral health, smile care, mentioned here. Diseased gums, rotten teeth, poor hygiene of the mouth ---hurt appearance and hurt overall health. So many patients can avoid losing their teeth by properly caring for them at an early age. - 1/2/2013 4:18:21 PM
