Age has been kind to me, but it’s been a lot of work and looking more younger than your actual age is tough. I’ve done all of the things I’m sharing with you today for years and I’ve completed these religiously. If you want to appear more youthful and feel better with aging it’s gonna take effort; I’m here to tell you. I’m 54 and will hit the big 55 in just a few short months. How did this happen to me? It seems I was just getting off the school bus and headed to work in the garden for my parents. Now that I’m middle-aged and time has flown so swiftly. However, here I am, and I want to help you with the thing that has worked for me during the last several decades.
Okay, I’ve been around the block. I’ve read it all, seen a lot and have endured many both pleasant and unpleasant experiences.
In all my years, I’ve never seen anything that works like exercise. I think it’s saved my life. Both my parents had massive heart attacks, and this is largely part of my motivation.
I want to live longer and feel better despite that fact. So, I exercise at least three times a week. Some workouts are two-mile walks outside that give me energy and keep me in shape.
Others are trips to the gym where I engage in cardio, strength training and flexibility exercises. I love being in shape because it makes me look and feel younger with age.
Shed body fat
We all like to eat, right? I mean that’s nothing new but is the food worth your health? I often think of this and why I typically save large meals for special occasions.
If you want to feel your best, it’s essential to get rid of the body fat and be your ideal weight. A couple of years ago my cholesterol was high. Scared me quite a bit and I went on a mission to lose 10 lbs. Guess what? I lost it.
One doctor said, “It’s time for cholesterol medication.” I said, “Let me lose some weight first.” AND I did.
Do you now every since that date two years ago I cook a pot of pintos in the crock pot every Sunday? Lol, They are so good for you, and I love them because I grew up on pintos.
Well, I went back after I lost ten pounds and my cholesterol was down about 30 points, and my triglycerides were down 100 points!! I was thrilled.
You will look younger if you are the right weight because you’re body will be more toned, your face more defined and you’ll have a lesser chance of having a double chin.
Take care of your skin
I remember when I was in my 20s I was so worried about wrinkles I started using Retin-A. In fact, I used Retin-A for several years, and I looked younger.
I don’t do that now, but I do use an all-natural skincare line that is amazing. I know this product has helped my skin appear much more youthful.
I’ve been using it for two years now and won’t go without it. There are three LimeLife products I use daily but you could by with two or three.
What I use and the order I apply these products is listed below:
Quench Cleanse – This mild yet incredibly effective cleanser focuses on hydrating and balancing, as well as calming common issues that arise with aging, sun damage, and troubled skin.
There is Aloe Vera in this cleanser creates a shield that keeps moisture in and pollutants out, while Rose Flower Water from Bulgaria hydrates and soothes.

It’s no secret that drinking water is good for your skin but I’m living proof of just how good it is! Ha. I get up and have a huge glass of water each morning and it helps me start my day off just right.
Of course, some days are better than others but I’d imagine I drink about 64 oz per day. This is also good to keep your body detoxified and make you feel more energized.
Okay, I must admit I’m a bit of a vitamin junkie. Lol I take about five per day and I swear by these. I’ve not been sick or even spent a night in the hospital my entire LIFE!!! Wow, knock on wood, right?
I contribute much of my good health to not being adventurous, Lol, staying active and taking supplements.
Well you’re in luck because I’m going to share with you the ones I take daily.
Green vibrance – Unless you eat like a healthy king, your diet may need some help. This is it because I feel more energetic when I take Green Vibrance daily. I guess I’ve been taking it about eight years now so that shows my love for it. Click HERE to buy this.
Mega Foods Vitamin – This is one heck of a high-quality brand and it has all the things you body needs. You can take it on an empty stomach with water and that’s what I love and get it HERE.
Biotin – Menopause takes a toll on your hair so I believe in the power of Biotin. It’s really helped my skin hair and nails and you can buy it HERE.
Fish oil – I’ve taken fish oil most my life and now is no time to quit. It helps my aging joints, dry eyes and may lower cholesterol. Yes, I’ll take it.
Vitamin D – I write for a living (can’t you tell) so I’m inside most of the day. I add a dose of Vitamin D to my day to help me feel better.
There you have it the things I take daily and I STRONGLY believe in the power of these for good health and more energy with age.
Exfoliate your skin
In my opinion, you must remove the dead skin cells from your skin to look years younger. I do this at least two times a week.
I rely on a facial mask that gently but effectively exfoliates my skin. It smells like lemons and is in the same skincare line as mentioned above – LimeLife and get it HERE.
Skin polish can be used for 10-15 minutes and works to provide a cleaner and fresher look when you remove it. It dries nicely and can be removed with a warm washcloth.
This lemony fresh, nutrient-rich mask and scrub hydrates, balances, and reduces inflammation. Natural Jojoba Beads roll away impurities, as well as dead and dehydrated skin, so oils from Olives, Lemon, and Cypress can restore and protect your skin. Use regularly to balance your skin and unearth a youthful glow by putting this beauty tip to work.
Ladies, this mask comes in a FOUR-ounce bottle and click HERE to get it. You do GET FREE SHIPPPING with any $58 order.
Watch your diet
I do my best to add fruits and vegetables to my diet daily (remember the pintos). Lol The more all-natural foods I eat the better I feel and the easier to maintain my weight.
I love bananas, apples, oranges and most any fruit. I’ll typically get mixed vegetables and add some tomato to this with onions for a side for supper.
Whatever you can do to eat more naturally the better it will be for your body, skin and health.
I guess I’ve always been a huge fan of sleep and it’s the best beauty tip I have. I’ve been going to bed at 8 pm since I was in high school. Wow, wonder if that has helped my health and aging.
I try my best to get 8-9 hours of deep sleep per night and I must admit I take melatonin to do it. It’s amazing stuff but be sure to get the Natrol Time Released option with 5 mg .
