Women are taught from an early age to focus on their looks. From magazines to billboards to the televisions in our living rooms, the world tells us that beauty is everything when it comes to being successful and attracting men, but what happens when we become older? Not only does our beauty start to fade, but our health can suffer as well if we do not pay attention to what we eat and how much exercise we get. Here are six tips for maintaining your health and beauty as you age.

Eat Right and Exercise
Maintaining a healthy diet and exercise regimen are two ways to achieve optimal health. Eating right means consuming less sugar, eating more fruits and vegetables, cutting back on unhealthy fats, increasing whole grains and drinking lots of water. Exercise is also vital for staying fit; get at least 150 minutes of moderate physical activity per week. Losing weight can be hard for many women who are afraid that their bodies will change dramatically when they lose weight. But losing weight does not have to mean gaining muscle and losing body fat; by exercising you can actually become healthier without changing what you look like when it’s all said and done. It’s important to talk to your doctor before embarking on any kind of diet or exercise program. You should know exactly how much you should eat, how often and what kinds of exercises are best for you. In other words, take care of yourself: Your appearance may improve but if your mental state suffers because of poor nutrition or an extreme workout plan, then there really isn't much point in taking good care of yourself in terms of fitness. No matter what looks like on paper, if your life sucks then there's little reason to celebrate having been deemed beautiful. On top of all that: Don't worry about other people judging you based upon how happy/healthy/unhappy/unhealthy/fat/skinny etc., you appear!
Spend Some Time in Nature
Even if you don’t have time for an actual hiking trip, just taking some time outside is good for your health. It doesn’t have to be anything strenuous; going on short walks or just sitting by a pond can help you feel better. For women, getting enough time in nature is especially important, as we need more green space than men do (we tend to breathe through our skin). Being exposed to greenspace not only helps us physically but it also has been shown to boost our happiness and reduce depression symptoms. In one study, researchers found that if patients with severe depression spent two hours a week in natural environments like parks or mountains their symptoms were reduced by 42 percent after six months of treatment! Getting some quality time outdoors isn’t just good for your appearance either—it also boosts cognitive function and attention span. So get out there whenever you can, even if its freezing cold—you might be surprised at how much happier you are at work when everything around you isn’t so bleak (and frosty).Best Beauty Tips - Retain Youthfulness By: James MacDonald Maintaining youthfulness is always what everyone wants whether he is young or old. Obviously, a youthful face seems desirable because aging gives someone bad looks which apparently reflects his/her character . What younger people look so appealing to older people?

Sleep Well, Eat Right, and Stay Hydrated
If you’re looking for a surefire way to keep yourself feeling healthy and vibrant, then consider some of our age-old health recommendations. While we may not have invented any revolutionary new ways of staying fit, it’s clear that women are more likely than men to opt for healthier lifestyle choices. That’s because women tend to be more aware of their bodies: from menstruation and hormonal balance, all the way through pregnancy, birth, and breastfeeding. And there are many things we can do for ourselves every day – like sleep well, eat right, and stay hydrated – that help us feel beautiful inside out. Make them part of your routine!
Protect your Skin from the Sun
There’s no greater single beauty threat than spending too much time in the sun. UVA and UVB rays can cause wrinkles, discoloration, freckles, and even skin cancer, so protecting your skin from sunlight is one of most important steps you can take toward maintaining your attractiveness. Wear sunscreen every day—every year it may be all that stands between you and early wrinkles. If you’re planning on being outside for long periods of time, wear protective clothing (and sunglasses). You might also want to consider installing some window tinting at home; after all, just because it isn’t outdoors doesn't mean UV light can't get through windows.
Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize!
It might sound boring, but moisturizing is an important part of maintaining your skin’s health. The biggest thing you can do is simply use lotion on a regular basis. At least twice per day—once in the morning and once at night—massage that lotion into your face and body (avoiding sensitive areas). People who practice proper moisturization tend to have less wrinkles than those who don’t, plus they have smoother-looking skin overall. Your skin will thank you later! If you’re worried about smelling like a baby or something, opt for unscented products; it doesn’t take much for your skin to absorb all it needs.

Take Care of your Mental Health
To feel and look your best, you need to take care of yourself mentally and emotionally. This includes eating well and getting adequate sleep. It’s important for women not to neglect their diet because it can have such an impact on how they look, especially over time. Try removing processed foods from your diet and aim for lots of whole fruits, vegetables, grains, and lean proteins like fish. If you’re feeling sluggish in the morning try waking up 15 minutes earlier so you can eat breakfast before running out the door; it will leave you feeling energized throughout the day.
