Truth be told, every mature woman has a desire to maintain beautiful and youthful skin as she ages. To stay forever young isn’t about finding the long-sought-after fountain of youth, but rather, finding ways to support to your body, health, and skin get to the highest potential.
Below are 5 simple ways to help you maintain youthful and glowing skin as you age.
1) Whole Food Plant-Based Eating
One of the best anti-aging miracles is right in front of you – it is the plate of food you choose to eat every single day. A diet that is focused around plants is one of the greatest anti-aging 'potions.' Specifically, a whole food plant-based diet is rich in antioxidants, nutrients, vitamins, minerals, and water. This way of eating not only supports your health in general, but is also particularly great for aiding the collagen and other supportive protein in your skin. This then contributes to your skin looking more firm, plump, youthful, and less wrinkly.

2) Getting adequate rest
People who are sleep-deprived can look many years older than their true age. Insomnia can be one of the challenges of aging and is a common symptom in women experiencing menopause. Poor sleep not only has serious cardiovascular and neurological health consequences, but the effects can be seen in the form of aging skin. To combat insomnia, follow simple tips such as being intentional about setting up sleep rituals before bed in order to train your body and brain for sleep, go to bed and wake up at the same time every day, avoid caffeinated beverages at least 5 hours before sleep, avoid eating heavy meals 3 hours before sleep, keep the room cool and dark, ditch the smart phones or TV which are known to affect your melatonin levels, try to go to bed by 10 pm to take advantage of the higher melatonin levels between 10 pm and 2 am, and avoid doing work in bed.
Some folks have found natural herbal sleep support to be helpful. A very popular one is Hit the Hay Relaxation and Sleep Support Extract in our Lifestyle Medicine shop at this link.
The secret is out! Moringa, one of the most nutrient dense plants on earth, has been shown to have many health benefits, one of which is to help nourish hair and skin. Moringa leaves are rich in minerals, vitamins and other essential phytochemicals. In particular, Moringa is high vitamin A, vitamin B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin), B3 (niacin), B-6 folate, ascorbic acid (vitamin C), calcium, potassium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, and zinc. Not only is Moringa consumed internally but some of the best skin and body care products are made with Moringa.

Drinking water not only helps your skin but your entire body. The amount of water that is best for you is based on your individual needs and may be affected by underlying medical issues, so check with your doctor. Once cleared, keep yourself hydrated by setting up reminders on your smartphone, and avoid drinking sodas or sugary beverages.
5) Avoid Smoking
You should avoid smoking, including second-hand smoke, because smoking is dangerous for your overall health. In addition to that, smoking breaks down collagen and accelerates the aging of your skin. If you currently smoke, work with your primary care doctor to access resources to help you stop smoking or get registered in a smoking cessation program.
