Society is obsessed by youth and I think it’s highly overrated. I’ve noticed that as we get older, some people will go to great lengths to try and hide their age, especially women. In my opinion, age is defined by your spirit and not by the date on your driver’s license.
No matter what my age, I’ll always be young at heart. I don’t follow the trend telling me what I should look or dress like for my age. If anything, I break just about every rule. I don’t hide my age, but rather surprise people by looking younger because I stay fit and eat healthy. With each year passing, I gain more wisdom, knowledge and success. And I would never trade that for anything.
I’m not embarrassed telling anyone that I’m 38 years old. I’m often asked how do I keep looking so young. I stay young by being active and choosing healthier food. I exercise any chance I get. I would rather spend 2 hours at the gym than at a beauty or nail salon because being fit will make me look and feel naturally young and beautiful.
I take pride being an all natural trainer and woman. I would never have plastic surgery to look better nor would I ever inject Botox to make myself look young. I embrace the wrinkles I have because it tells people that I’ve lived a full life.
Besides being fit, having a nice complexion is the key to looking youthful. There are foods that you can eat that are good for your skin to prevent cell structure damage that can lead to wrinkles, fine lines and loss of firmness. I recommend half a cup of blueberries daily, as it will help smooth fine lines. One of my favorite vegetables that also help me look younger is spinach. Spinach contains beta-carotene and lutein nutrients that have been proven to improve elasticity to help firm your skin. I suggest that you serve yourself three cups per week.
Just because you’re older doesn’t mean you should let yourself go. I wake up everyday finding ways to challenge myself, mentally and physically. Look youthful by eating the right food and staying active!
