Aging is natural but sometimes we all need a little help. Age spots, wrinkles, lack of mobility, hair loss, and dull skin can all make you look older than you are.
Here are our five simple secrets to aging gracefully (and maybe looking a little more youthful in the process).
What you put into your body is important. Choosing a diet of fresh, whole foods is one of the primary keys to a youthful appearance, not to mention better health and more energy. Eat a balanced diet of fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and lean meats as well as seeds and nuts.
Hydration is also important so make sure you drink plenty of water daily. Six to eight glasses of water every day will help to keep you hydrated which will help ensure that your organs are functioning better. It also aids your digestion.
Regular exercise helps to keep you healthy, flexible and improves your mobility. It will also help to boost your mood. The good news is, you don’t have to join a gym or buy expensive equipment in order to benefit from exercise. You can do something as simple as taking a walk, climbing stairs, riding your bike, or dancing in your living room. The key is to get your heart rate up and keep it up for at least 20 to 30 minutes.
If you are just starting that might not be feasible, but you can sure work up to it. Start small, walking 10 to 15 minutes a day, and gradually build it up.
Your mindset or state of mind is important and believe it or not, it will help to keep you young and vital. Journaling can be a helpful exercise to help keep you positive. Talking to someone can help too. Spending time with friends and family can be a real mood booster, but sometimes it isn’t possible or it just isn’t enough. In those cases, counseling can help.
But here at Sandstone, we offer another option with our neurofeedback services. It is a simple process that can help change the way your brain works which can change the way you feel. It can help with anxiety and depression as well as other issues.
Hair loss is a part of aging, but it doesn’t have to be a part of your aging. Our hair restoration services are appropriate for both men and women. It is a simple, non-surgical procedure that is done in our office and there is no downtime after.
You get natural-looking results that you will love to show off. Treatments typically take around 60 to 90 minutes per session and you should achieve optimal results in one to three treatments.
One of the first places we see the signs of aging is in the face. Dark spots, fine lines, dullness, and wrinkles are some of the most common problems of aging skin. Our facial rejuvenation services help to give your skin a youthful glow while minimizing fine lines and wrinkles. What you get is younger-looking skin.
This simple, minimally invasive process stimulates your body’s natural collagen production. The treatment is actually a combination of PRP and micro-needling which are performed consecutively to give you optimal results in just a couple of treatments. There is no downtime during recovery.
