The key when exercising is always to get the most bang for your buck or the best results for the time invested. The problem is that everyone has a different opinion of what the best results are. Exercise can shape your muscles and get rid of fat, but much like skin, everyone is different. More often the best advice for those wanting to look younger is as follows:
Focus on aerobic activities such as jogging, walking, and swimming. Invest a minimum of 75 minutes and a maximum of 150 minutes each week. While gradually building endurance and stamina, shape the muscles and build a strong core with several weight lifting sessions each week.
Now that you’ve got the ball rolling you want to keep it rolling. Do not drink excessively and if you are very concerned about looking as young as possible stop drinking period. Drinking more than one drink a day if you are over 65 becomes dangerous and drinking in general puts you at risk for various diseases. Perhaps consider working in reverse if you have a bad habit of drinking too much too often. So try cutting down on the drinking and then try focusing more on the skin care and exercise routines.
While on the topic of cutting down alcohol it is important to mention the other activity that is without a doubt bad for anyone of any age. (smoking) Smoking invites many issues much like drinking, and much like drinking the more often you do it, the worse off you are. Sadly, the concept of smoking in moderation is not even close to drinking in moderation, so smokers are often encouraged to completely cut out smoking by using various nicotine products. If you want to be healthier and younger, you will find a way to fix the smoking habit. Once again it would be wise to consider perhaps taking small and well-thought out steps. For example, cutting out drinking and smoking might be phase one.
If you are this far down the line, then things are looking pretty good for your overall goal of looking younger and overall being healthier. You are working out, your hair is properly managed, your skin care routine is being figured out, and all habits have been in one way or another dealt with. Now the threats you are looking out for are much easier to spot and deal with.
Avoid too much sun exposure without sunscreen and think about your skin and overall health when trying to become tan. That means very many different things in today’s time. Go to a well-ventilated facility when getting a spray tan and make sure you hold you close your eyes. Do not try the tanning pills that have the potential to destroy your insides. Lastly, try to get as much natural sunlight as possible to prevent too much exposure to ultraviolet radiation, which comes from tanning beds.
Staying hydrated has already been mentioned more than once, but since we are talking about the sun and skin, we might as well bring it up again. Do whatever it takes to stay hydrated at all times. 16 cups (4 quarts) of fluids should be ingested in some way shape or form, and the overwhelming majority should indeed come from pure water.
