Start Living
Stop counting the numbers and start living your life. Stay mature in your mind but don’t always act your age! And by that I mean, never succumb to saggy granny tights, twinsets and pearls or a lavender set and perm. Lots of older people swear they remain youthful by carrying on doing the things they have always done. Keep moving, keep learning and keep up with the young! A great way to enhance your life as you get older is to join new classes. These could be anything from sewing to photography and Yoga to Pilates.  Staying active gives you more energy and helps keep your mind healthy and balanced. Choose classes that involve exercise and you’ll also increase, stamina, flexibility and strength. These are all fantastic for combating weight gain, high blood pressure and osteoporosis.

Get A Stylist – Even If Just For One Day
As we get older, we often get stuck with bad habits. These can be anything from always wearing the same makeup or sticking to the same hairstyle. It may also be that you are stuck in a style rut and haven't updated your wardrobe to reflect current trends. Celebrities may have access to 24-hour personal stylists, but we can certainly hire them just for one day. A stylist has the expertise to make you look younger, slimmer and taller by choosing the right clothes and colours for you. Once you know what suits you, you will save money on clothes by only buying the right things. It may be that you’ve been wearing cool colours all your life when you should have been wearing warm. Or perhaps you’ve gone for A-line skirts when you should have been wearing straight ones. A personal stylist has the capability of taking years off your look. Remaining stylish and glamorous as you get older will give you a new lease of life.

Get a Health And Skin Management Plan In Place
As we get older, there will be concerns about age-related illnesses such as heart disease, diabetes and osteoporosis. Just because you don’t have them now, doesn’t mean you won’t get them. Get a health management plan in place to work on staving off such diseases. Cenegenics offer an age management programme that uses the latest technology to combat a whole host of age-related problems. Age management programmes are great if you are concerned about hormone changes, weight gain, bone density and high cholesterol. There are also lots of brands that offer beauty and skin care supplements to detox, cleanse and anti-age your skin and body. Oskia have a Pure Beauty MSM Supplement that includes natural ingredients to help improve skin condition. Chris James Mind Body offer 3 and 12 day cleanses for a cleaner and leaner body. There are also many luxury detox and cleansing retreats where you can spend 3 or seven nights on a wellness plan. Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell swear by them!    

Eat Well
There are plenty of clinical studies that prove what you eat and drink shapes how your body feels. A study in Crete showed low rates of cancer and heart disease across the population. This has been put down to the amount of extra virgin olive oil the locals consume. It is rich in healthy fats and antioxidants that strengthen your immune system and slow down cognitive decline. The Mediterranean diet has long been publicised as one of the best to follow. Also, make sure you get in lots of fatty fish high in Omega 3. Fish such as salmon is good for cholesterol and your arteries. Eat lots of dark leafy vegetables for younger, plumper skin and drink green tea. Green tea is also high in antioxidants and is beneficial for improved health. There is a whole list of superfoods you can eat to help stave off disease and work towards preventing certain cancers. These include blueberries, strawberries, tomatoes and almonds. Think smart about what you put into your body and you will be rewarded in the long term.

Dare To Try New Treatments
Cutting-edge technology and advances in science and beauty mean there are lots of effective treatments to give you a quick boost. Consider Botox for frown lines and crows feet. Book in for Microdermabrasion to get fresh, brighter skin and consider Hylaform filler to achieve a plumper lip. An hour-long thread lift will banish those pesky jowls and sagging neck and works miracles. Research meticulously but don’t be afraid to try new treatments. If you don’t fancy needles, try alternative treatments with proven results. Retinoids are a big thing in the skincare industry. Featuring vitamin A derivatives, retinoids increase cell turnover and boost collagen. You can get in spa treatments but also buy over-the-counter retinol creams. Chocolate facials are on trend right now. Dark chocolate is known to contain age-defying antioxidants. A chocolate facial is said to get those nutrients deeper into your skin than if you just take a bite. Sounds crazy? Maybe, but what a sweet treat it will be!  

Stop Worrying
Our last and favourite step on the road to anti-ageing your body and skin is to stop worrying! Stress causes cells to age much more prematurely, and this is reflected in both your skin and in your mind. When someone has been through a lot of stress in their life, it shows on their face. It’s no easy feat to stop worrying, but it does make sense. And there is certainly no point worrying about things you can’t change. And if you can change them? Make a positive plan to do so, and get friends on board to help.
