5 Healthy Habits That Fight the Signs of Aging

How to Maintain a Youthful Appearance


  • Great article and great comments too. I'd put plenty of sleep high on my personal 'anti-ageing' regime. - 11/21/2010 12:51:05 PM
  • My mother uses 98% aloe vera gel as her moisturizer. It has greatly improved her skin and she looks younger, so I could recommend that! - 11/21/2010 4:29:33 AM
    Bottom line for me - aging is way better than the alternative, at least at this point in my life (54 years old). - 11/20/2010 4:55:10 AM
  • Most people'd agree that smoking is aging. I took in my parents' dog. My mom has smoked in the house for years; the dog had drooping "Basset hound" eyes - all red and sad looking. He's been smoke-free with me for three weeks and his eyes have shrunk back up to the eyeball - he looks SO much younger already.

    Good article with right-on tips. Thanks. ;0) - 10/31/2010 9:28:48 AM
  • I would add do strength training. Exercise is the ultimate anti-aging regimen, and I have seen women who weight train that look in their 20s when they are in their 50s and 60s (seriously!) - 9/12/2010 3:08:31 PM
    Never a truer word spoken. I've just turned 30, I don't smoke (anymore!!!) and have never been a big drinker. My skin is in the best condition it's been in a long time thanks to a more balanced diet and excercising (which *I* think gives it a lovely 'glow'!) I'm really beginning to see the difference with friends of a similar age though, who are starting a look a little (dare I say it?), haggard! - 8/28/2010 6:58:45 AM
  • I started all of these in my 20's, and now that I'm about to turn 50, I can say that I really don't have any complaints about my skin and get mistaken for being much younger. Would love to know how I would have looked if I never baked my skin in my teens! - 6/1/2010 4:20:14 PM
    I"m 51 now and am pleased with my skin's appearance and texture. When I was in my 20's, I remember a woman at a beauty counter telling me some of these very same things to keep my skin healthy as I grew older. I followed her advice and it worked.
    This is a great article. I'd like to pass it on to my grand-daughter!

  • Great article! It gives me extra reasons to eat properly...more fresh fruits and veggies. - 8/8/2009 8:25:50 AM

    I love reading articles like this. It's drilled in our heads all of the time on what is good and bad for you and when I used to smoke I knew that I was risking getting cancer and damaging my body. I do these things anyways. I think we continue doing these things until we have a hard realization physically. Until then we live like "It will never happen to me". Thankgoodness I am now smoke free :) - 4/20/2009 6:45:20 PM
  • I am so glad to see today's younger generation taking better care of themselves rather than waiting. I am thankful for the media that helps to make us all more aware of how to better take care of ourselves. Where did the years go in my life? - 3/11/2009 9:12:13 PM
  • i'm only 23, but my life plan is to age gracefully and feel great as I do so. I think women are most beautiful when they are natural and that is what I want to be. - 2/3/2009 2:13:27 AM
  • i like to read articles like this. i'm 23 and i hope to follow guidelines like this as i age... - 1/18/2009 9:45:51 AM
    I'm told I'm very young looking (I'm 46). While part of this is probably genetics, I also have not used soap on my face since I was 18 years old, I've never smoked, and I don't drink to excess. There are a lot of things I've done wrong, like over-eating, but facial skin care is not one of them. I use a mild cleaser, followed by a gentle toner to restore the skin's ph balance, and then a light moisturizer. All hypo-allergenic. I wish I'd paid the same attention to the skin on my hands and neck, because that is what will give away my age before my face does! - 12/2/2008 3:20:09 AM
  • Wish I could stop smoking already - but no, one vice at a time to conquer. First the eating habit - 11/25/2008 9:35:47 AM
