Aging Gracefully Into A New Chapter of Your LifePosted on December 18, 2012 | by Boston Plastic Surgery
While all of us have to get old at some point that doesn’t mean you have to look older than they feel. Aging gracefully into the golden years and keeping a youthful appearance is easily achievable.
Maintaining Your Skin And Body
Many people think that in order to maintain their body they need to spend hours at the local gym, but this isn’t necessarily the case.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Development, men and women who are over the age of 65, can sufficiently meet their exercise needs with two and a half hours of moderate aerobic work throughout the week and muscle training twice a week.
However, some signs of aging will pop up no matter how much you diet or exercise. This is why skin care is important to age as gracefully as possible. When the store bought skin regimen isn’t cutting it any more, professional treatments such as chemical peels, laser rejuvenation, and microdermabrasion can wipe years off of your face.
Matching How You Look To How You Feel
There may be a time when a glance in the mirror creates more anxiety than it does create confidence. This could be because you’re not appearing as energetic as you feel.
Non-surgical procedures like skin rejuvenation, dermal fillers, and Botox are subtle ways of making your looks match your youthful personality. Longer-lasting options to do the same include: a face lift, a brow lift, and eyelid surgery.
Some people fear aging because of the uncertainty the future holds. However, many people see the golden years as an opportunity to experience the world through new adventures and traveling, expanding their wisdom by going to school, or even starting another career.
