Wrinkles are the new naughty word of the decade. If you have them, you want to get rid of them at any price. If you don’t have them, you may make some wrinkles appear just by worrying about how to avoid them!

This whole exaggerated fear of wrinkles is a cosmetic surgeon’s dream come true. They’ll inject you with something that could kill in high enough doses – just to smooth out a few lines on your face.

But it’s only temporary. You have to go back month after month and pay a small fortune just to keep those signs of aging away. Before you know it, you’re paying more for maintenance on your wrinkles than it costs to keep you car tuned up!

You can take control of your wrinkle management regimen with simple, low cost, natural approaches. Here are some tips to help keep aging at bay:

• Drink 6-8 glasses of water a day. It almost sounds too simple, but it’s very important to hydrate from the inside-out. Your skin is the largest organ of your body and it desperately needs to be hydrated. Drinking water, not lattes or sodas, keeps your skin supple and the rest of your body benefits, too!

• Increase your intake of fruits and vegetables. The natural antioxidants in these fresh foods help strength skin tissue so that it repairs and rebuilds on schedule.

• Take vitamin and mineral supplements – particularly skin-friendly Vitamins A, C, and E. It doesn’t matter how many creams you put on your skin – if your body isn’t well-nourished, hydrated and supported with vitamins, signs of aging will show up and cause damage to your appearance.

• Include more nuts and oils in your diet. Use high quality virgin or extra virgin olive oil in your salads and for cooking. Snack on walnuts, peanuts or almonds. These foods help your body lubricate the skin from the inside-out.

• Additional antioxidants can be applied to the skin with creams made from soy protein, Vitamin A (retinol), peptides, hyrodxy acid and CoQ10 Enzyme. Look for these in a health food store or natural pharmacy. They aren’t cheap, but you’ll get better quality here than some of what you could buy for twice the price in a department store. And the natural products aren’t filled with artificial chemicals.

Combating wrinkles is an inside job as well as outside maintenance regimen. No amount of expensive designer creams will overcome what your body lacks to rebuild damaged cells.

Mental Attitude

Perhaps the most important thing you can do for yourself to increase longevity and live a happier, healthier life is to learn how to develop and keep a positive mental attitude.

The process of developing an attitude that will help you later in life should be nurtured during the younger years. How you learn skills when you’re young to help cope with adversities and strategies through life will become all important when you reach a time that requires those skills.

We now know how important it is to our mental health to figure out a mission for our lives. Then, as you go through the stages and hurdles of life, you can reassess that mission and reconfigure it for where you currently are on life’s path.

Living a full, rich life should be a goal that you not only strive for, but work toward by doing everything possible to make sure you’re healthy, both in body and mind to withstand the ravages of time.

The Most Important Tools to Keep a Positive Attitude

Scientific research indicates that “retirement” as our ancestors viewed it really isn’t a good thing for us to keep a positive mental attitude about life. Below are some helpful tools for you to live by if living a full, rich life is of concern to you.

• Keep Busy – A rocking chair isn’t the way to achieve “Fountain of Youth” effects during the aging process. We now know that keeping active, both in body and mind is the best way to live a long and productive life.

• Write Your Own Road Map – Baby boomers entering their 60s never expected to age, so they’re now looking for ways to keep their youth – but most are trying to retain their youth with cosmetic surgery, pills or surrounding themselves with youthful “things” such as a bright red sports car.

Writing your own road map for the rest of your life is empowering and can also help to build your mental aptitude just as you would build your muscles through exercise.

• Cultivate Healthy Relationships – The relationships you cultivate with family and friends can make the difference in how you view the rest of your life. Taking trips and learning new things are all better done with someone you care about than alone.

Take the necessary steps to develop a positive mental attitude that will help you through the aging process gently and optimistically.
