12 Things Anti-Aging Experts Don’t Do: Aging Foods and Habits to Avoid

We can learn to shave off years (or at least strive to look 10 to 20 years younger) by following some of the tips that anti-aging experts use on themselves, and avoid aging behaviors and habits.

Here’s a list of the aging foods and habits to avoid:

1. They don’t skip the face scrubbing

With all the exfoliation tools on the market today, there’s little reason to walk around with a countenance dulled by layers of dead skin. From $7 tubes of St. Ives scrub to $299 at-home microdermabrasion machines, experts know that fresher layers of dermis can be had at a variety of budgets.

2. They don’t walk around with yellow teeth

A smile stained golden by nicotine, coffee or other substances isn’t attractive, and for some reason screams, “Old person alert!” Youthful experts invest in whitening toothpaste and pour hydrogen peroxide atop their toothbrushes every day to shine up their teeth. Don’t forget the floss, too. It’ll help your heart.

3. They don’t ignore the scale and chow down on bad foods

Of course, we all have our days when Oreo mint cookies and Lay’s dill potato chips seem like our best friends. But beauty experts don’t live there permanently. Enjoy the junk once and a good while, however, make fruit and veggies your mainstay, in order to help keep your collagen nice and fluffy.

4. They don’t skip “hitting that steel” often

Forget the misconception that strength training will bulk you up to look like Arnold Schwarzenegger during his Pumping Iron days. We’ve all heard the edict that states you lose muscle with age, so it’s important to build your bones and muscles with resistance training.

5. They don’t keep with the same cardio routine

Yeah, who doesn’t love sweating out the stress via 5K workouts on the elliptical machine or the treadmill? Pundits claim that wandering into a yoga class, too, could help bring new blood and life to our faces in ways that make us appear younger and more relaxed. Hot yoga, here I come!

6. They don’t leave hair on their faces – if they’re of the female persuasion

Women may find their bodies playing strange tricks on them as they age, and one of those tricks might be the appearance of facial hair that they’ve never had before. Whether they use a $2 razor or more expensive facial waxing services or laser hair removal treatments, fountain-of-youth connoisseurs get those moustaches and muttonchops taken care of, already!

7. They don’t ignore the age spots

Liver spots and dark spots left by acne scarring are another telltale aging factor that “professionals of pretty” address, usually by using bleaching creams containing 2% hydroquinone creams – FDA approved, but not without controversy – or those that contain vitamin C or kojic acid.

8. They don’t neglect the estrogen and testosterone situation

Getting older sometimes means dealing with menopausal symptoms or “low T.” Talk with your doctor about the benefits and risks of hormone replacement therapy, especially after a hysterectomy, or testosterone treatment – but make sure to learn all the risk factors, especially for men who’ve had heart issues.

9. They don’t forget to address their acne

Adult acne can be an annoying problem to encounter, but experts don’t leave their faces in a mess of cystic acne – which can be related to hormonal problems – if they can help it. Consult a dermatologist to determine the root of your acne and the best possible treatment options.

10. They don’t act or dress “old”

Sometimes it’s not a matter of how you look, but how you act that ages you. Pick up on clues by observing how younger people speak and dress to discover what’s actually going on around you. Not that you should start dressing like Nicki Minaj, but at least be in the know enough to know what the word “thot” means.

11. They don’t judge younger people harshly

Experts remember that they were young and wild once – or perhaps still are and just trying to hide it. Youthful people don’t look down their noses at younger folks as if they are inept and ignorant. Instead, they realize everyone has something to teach them.

12. They don’t surround themselves with strictly people their own age

You can only learn from a variety of people if you’re around folks of many different ages and backgrounds. Experts make strides to go those places where they are likely to meet many kinds of people. Go forth, be fruitful and multiply the young vibes.
