One-minute anti-aging tips

You don't need fancy lotions and expensive concoctions to make you look younger. You just need to follow these five simple tips to take years off your appearance.


Loofah massage
Many people have a loofah in the shower for scrubbing those hard to reach places, but just one-minute spent massaging with a loofah can help improve lymphatic circulation. Next time you’re in the shower, put on a loofah glove and start massaging. Rub up and down on the lower body, except the knees where you should use a circular motion. A circular motion is also best used across the torso and shoulders and a vertical motion across the back. Not only will you stimulate the lymph glands, which circulate immune cells through the body, you’ll also have lovely, smooth skin. 


Vitamin supplements
Taking just one minute each day to add a few extra vitamin supplements to your diet can have real benefits, if you think about what you’re taking and why. A multivitamin is preferred by a lot of people, but what does it really improve? This quick guide may help you work out a better vitamin plan:

  • Omega-3 oil – good for helping to prevent cardiovascular disease and they may also help improve inflammatory conditions

  • Bilberry – helps maintain good eye health

  • Gingko Biloba – stimulates healthy brain function and can help with your memory and attention span

  • Garlic – as well as having garlic in your diet, garlic tablets are a powerful antioxidant and are great for detoxifying and improving the immune system

  • Hawthorn – can be used to improve the health of the heart muscle

 

Before taking any supplements, you should consult your doctor or pharmacists to ensure there is no conflict with any medication you are already taking.

    Hmmm. This is a seniors' newsletter. How old is the woman in the photo?
    I recommend Kosmea Rose hip oil for wrinkles, sore places, and almost everything. It's for men and women.

    the woman in the photo is ninety, so those 5 tips must really work eh Jennie.... I also think it pays to look your age then people don't expect you to perform beyond your capabilities.

    Excellent ozirules! Or is it dementiarules when asked to perform. I can look quite loopy when required to perform. Rosehip oil doesn't lubricate the brain unfortunately.

    Another way to keep young is to ACT and THINK young. Like coming home LATE from the PUB, sharing a taxi with the girl next door, having a FRIENDLY coffee with the girl next door, taking out her rubbish tins, and cleaning up her BREAKFAST DISHES before you pop home.
    Happy New Year you old barstewards.

    Taking Vitamins is too expensive, try real food and fresh is best, micro greens will give you heaps of vitamins and make your skin glow. Moisturizers often clog up your skin, just try an oil blend, a little goes a long way. What ages most people is stress whether it is on your mind or body.
