Some of the youngest looking 50, 60, and 70-year-olds are celebrities. When it’s your job to look good – then you’ll do everything in your power to keep your youthful looks. As a normal person, you can do what celebrities do and keep your gorgeous looks.
Here are some suggestions for you:
Hats, Umbrellas, Tinted Rides
Excessive sunlight exposure is the primary cause of skin aging – and even skin cancer and melanomas. Hugh Jackman and Brooke Shields are vocal proponents of sun safety and the use of hats. Other celebrities like Nicole Kidman, Anne Hathaway, Gwen Stefani, and many others are sporting umbrellas when they’re out in the sun. The tinted rides of most celebrities aren’t just for privacy – they also keep ultraviolet (UV) rays out. The UV exposure is a serious problem -, especially in elevated Utah.
Act like a celebrity and protect your skin from sun damage. Wear protective clothing that limits your skin’s sun exposure. Hats are quite effective in blocking direct sunlight – especially the wide-brimmed ones. Umbrellas provide even bigger coverage against sunlight, just make sure your umbrella is dark-colored or rated for UV protection.
Take your protection to another level by making sure your car is fitted with UV-filtering film. Your short drives to work expose you to vast amounts of UV – enough to make your skin look older or even raise your risk of developing skin cancer and melanoma.
Nutrition and Exercise
Personnel, private chefs, dietitians, nutritionists, personal trainers – celebrities have an army of these to make sure they stay healthy and beautiful. While you probably don’t have a similar support structure around you, you can still make an effort to eat healthy and get a bit of exercise. Stock up on celebrity favorites such as papaya (vitamins, potassium, and calcium); blueberries (vitamins and antioxidants that prevent collagen loss); nuts (omega-3); and avocados (vitamins, potassium, and carotenoids that limit the effects of sun damage).
Throw in a bit of exercise twice a week. Researchers in Ontario discovered that 30-minute exercise sessions twice a week could somewhat reverse skin aging in seniors. Skin samples from seniors that participated in the twice a week regimen appeared younger by 20-40 years.
Visits to the Clinic
If you noticed that most celebrities stopped aging around 10-12 years ago, you’re probably right. Relaxers and fillers hit the market and found general acceptance around that time. Botox and Juvederm injections in Utah and other states are two of the most popular cosmetic procedures today. The use of relaxers and fillers has been continuously improved in the past decade. Your face can look more natural without the frozen look of early Botox use.
Botox and Juvederm require injections. Botox typically costs less, but it requires more injections and only lasts 3-5 months. A typical session with multiple injections will usually cost an average of $500-$600. A single Juvederm injection can cost $600-$700. However, the treatment usually lasts for a year or longer.
Staying young requires a bit of effort, discipline, and money. Avoid the sun’s UV rays to prevent your skin from aging, eat right to keep your body and your skin healthy, and visit the clinics for a quick touch up whenever you feel the need.
