Limit Your Caffeine Intake-It Can Cause Dry Skin…
This one may be the hardest one for me to follow!
And like me, coffee is essential to many of us! Did you know, “it also causes damage to your skin, especially if you’re prone to acne or other common skin conditions,” says Rebecca Fitzgerald, MD.
Instead drink plenty of water and maintain a well-rounded diet because a healthy body equals better skin for most patients.
Say “No” Sometimes…
“My best anti-aging tip is the ability to say no, no, and h**l, no,” actress and former America’s Got Talent judge Gabrielle Union, 48, told Women’s Health back in March.

Take a Hike…
“Hiking is an excellent activity for dual tasking since it requires movement, balance, vision, proprioception, decision-making, all great cognitive activities that occur while you are working your legs, your lungs and your heart,” Dr. Dan Ritchie, founder of The Functional Aging Institute, has said. “This can have a powerful anti-aging effect.”

Use Olive Oil…
Being of a Middle Eastern background, I was raised on Olive Oil for just about everything! To this day I still fry up eggs in Olive Oil.
Whether you’re using it to bake or make homemade dressings, olive oil is likely among your pantry staples. While you may already know it’s good for your ticker, you may not be aware that it’s also a powerful wrinkle-fighter.
Unlike saturated fats, and partially hydrogenated oils found in many processed foods, olive oil is a healthy fat teeming with omega-3s, which have been shown to keep skin safe from free radical damage. The antioxidants found in olives may also help reduce skin damage that can lead to wrinkles and blemishes.
As you probably know by now I say… EMBRACE YOUR AGE… just don’t look it. I’m also for healthy ways to look younger. No Botox, excessive makeup and more.
