The Importance of Staying Young - Section 04 and 05 F11 PSY 1001 Read More
How much money are you willing to spend to stay young? Americans spend billions of dollars every year on anti-aging products that guarantee these extraordinary results. In general, aging is inevitable. Yet people go to extreme measures in order to avoid excess wrinkles and gray hairs as well as to fit in with society and the glamorous celebrities. Some simple tips that have been scientifically proven to help people age better are: getting more sleep, staying fit, lathering on face lotion, staying out of the sun, limiting alcohol and cigarette use, and relaxing.
For instance, sleep allows your immune system time to repair the damage instigated by day-to-day activities. Our body needs approximately seven to eight hours of sleep a night. As a result, your face will suffer the most damage if you do not receive enough sleep. Many lotions contain vitamins that can do wonders for your skin. Some examples of these are: reduced fine lines, improved textures, tightened pores, a natural radiance, restored firmness and hydrated skin.
I think this is an important concept because people waste so much money on anti-aging creams every year when there are simple things they can do everyday to prevent wrinkles and aging. As I am witnessing my mother continue to worry about aging, she refuses to focus on what she could have done in helping her skin. Instead she concentrates on the new products that will help her in the moment. Although being young is considered “the best times of our lives”, we are older much longer than we are young. So, while we are young, it is extremely important that we take care of our body. I want to feel and look good as I age. Although getting older is unavoidable, through these tips, I believe I can make a difference in my health.
