This online guide to anti aging for men covers a selection of tips and strategies to help maintain and improve men’s mental and physical anti aging regimen
Anti aging used to be an industry just targeting women.
It was more of a beauty niche for those who wanted to look and feel great about themselves.
Now, men make up a hefty portion of the anti aging industry, and manufacturers have responded with products just for their gender
Wrinkles don't just happen to women - men get them, too! And they're no happier about seeing fine lines around the eyes and mouth than women are.
But it's not a wrinkle issue - skin becomes discolored and blotchy and it gets dry, making a man look much older than his years.
Men, just like women, need to watch their skincare regimen as they age.
First, you want to start by feeding your skin from the inside out.
Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables rich in antioxidants, vitamins and minerals so that your skin cells have a fighting chance.
Men generally have to shave their face, so this can be extra harsh on them.
You have to maintain supple skin and soften it so that it remains hydrated and plump.
There are many skincare products that you can get to complete a skincare regimen for men.
Washing your face is a must - whether you're wearing a three-piece suit to the office or working outside in a labor-intensive job.
We all have dead skin cells that need to be sloughed off.
Once in awhile you might also want to use an exfoliant.
This doesn't have to be a daily skincare routine, but it can be a few times a week.
Cleanse and exfoliate so that you can then apply moisturizers that hydrate and plump up your skin.
When you moisturize your skin, make sure you use a separate eye cream and body cream from what you use on the rest of your face.
The eye cream is for more delicate areas, and the face creams are more delicate than body creams.
You can get an anytime moisturizer or split your regimen up into a day and night routine, depending on how your habits are. Ideally, you'll wash and moisturize twice a day.
In the morning, you're washing off the dead cells that have appeared during the restoration process overnight.
At night, you're washing off the free radicals you've encountered during the day.
Make sure you choose the right skincare products for you based on whether or not you have sensitive skin.
Choose items that are filled with SPF protection so that if you are outside, you get protection from the sun damage that makes you look older.
And choose Retinol as an ingredient in your nighttime skincare products so that it can help repair sun damage done throughout the day.
If you apply it in the morning, it can make your skin more sensitive to the sun's rays.
As you age, men start to lose testosterone, which is an important hormone that keeps you youthful and energetic.
Luckily, you can supplement that hormone to help restore some of your testosterone.
There are creams called natural androsome creams that help combat the loss of testosterone in your body.
Some men see a loss before their 40s, but others begin a gradual decline around that age.
You'll notice a wide range of symptoms, including:
* Sexual dysfunction
* Loss of bone mass
* Increased fatigue
* Memory loss...and more.
Testosterone is the main hormone that men have in their bodies.
You want to be a viral man, not a man who is suffering from physical and mental weaknesses.
Supplements can help you with this pursuit.
When you lose testosterone at too rapid of a rate, you become at higher risk for developing heart disease, osteoporosis, cancer and other ailments.
When you begin supplementing your testosterone, you reduce those risks, and your blood pressure, clotting abilities, and cholesterol and triglycerides numbers all have a better chance at stabilizing and getting back to normal levels.
If you've noticed any signs of low testosterone, get your doctor to run a test so that you can get treatment as soon as possible.
* Low interest in sex
* Erectile dysfunction
* Low energy levels
* Less muscle mass, more fat
Aside from testosterone supplementation, one thing you want in your supplement regimen are antioxidants to protect your body against free radicals.
Every day you encounter things that harm your inner and outer body - and you can't even see this pollution.
You can start with a multi vitamin made specifically for men.
They even have some for men over 50, so make sure you pick one that's right for your age and gender and not a one size fits all.
You might want to talk to your doctor about adding an aspirin to your daily intake.
This can help you avoid a problem that's common to men as they age - heart disease.
Aspirin will keep your blood flowing and work to prevent colon cancer.
But it can also cause stomach issues, so let your doctor monitor your intake.
You might also want to get started on carnitneis.
This is a supplement that helps you convert that beer belly into muscle. It does more than that, though.
It helps reduce chest pain, assists you with memory retention, helps diabetics, reduces fatigue, and works as an anti depressant.
Fish oil is another supplement you want to make sure you're taking.
The omega-3 fatty acids found in fish oil pills contribute to heart health.
It lowers your triglycerides numbers and improves cholesterol.
Another thing that fish oil does is helps you retain proper eye health.
This is something that typically worsens as we age.
Fish oil helps with macular degeneration, but it also helps with glaucoma.
Some people suggest that men start taking an HGH (human growth hormone) when they begin aging faster than they'd like to.
There is a debate brewing about this one, so you'll need a doctor's consultation before embracing it.
CoQ10 might be worth looking into as well. It helps with cellular functions, and that keeps you energetic and healthy as you age.
It helps with so many body functions - but mainly heart disease.
As you age, your mental health starts to decline just as your physical health does.But it's not inevitable.
You can take steps to engage in an anti aging regimen that includes working on your mental capabilities.
The aging population suffers from many issues in the mental health category, including:
* Memory loss
* Panic attacks
Many people don't receive the help they need because they consider it a normal part of the aging process.
But although it's common, it doesn't have to be a part of your life.
Many of the mental problems stem from physical health woes - and vice versa.
You can contribute to heart disease through added stress and anxiety, and being diagnosed with heart disease can cause increased stress and anxiety.
Make sure you maintain or re-ignite your socialization skills.
Don't allow yourself to become a hermit, cut off from the world and feeling sad and alone as you grow older.
The Washington Post reported in 2013 that Baby Boomers are committing suicide at an alarming rate.
As men age, they sometimes find themselves alone, mired in health issues and chained to mounting debt.
Sometimes the decision is made shortly after seeing a doctor and discovering a decline in health, so it's important that you keep up with your health and talk to a licensed professional who can get you through situations where you might be scared and feeling hopeless.
You might notice that you start to feel more paranoid, have trouble sleeping, and you're more stressed out.
You need to learn how to engage in better sleep hygiene, how to implement stress reduction measures, and keep your mind sharp as a tack.
Practice honing your memory skills and cognitive function through playing games that assist you with this.
There are memory games online or you can buy puzzles like Sudoku to help stimulate your brain function.
We mentioned carnitine earlier as one of the supplements you should take. Well it has another function - and that is to increase sperm count in men.
This naturally declines over time as you age.
Other sexual dysfunctions you might encounter as you age are erectile dysfunction.
Being unable to get an erection can be depressing, as well as humiliating for a man.
Sometimes it can take longer, and sometimes impotence - where you are completely unable to get an erection - occurs.
By the time you reach 65, you might be one of the quarter of the male population who suffers from this.
It happens because of other physical issues such as diabetes, heart disease, or sometimes even the medication that you're on.
Sometimes you can get an erection, but it doesn't last - or it's too soft.
You might find that you're suffering from a loss in your libido.
You just have no interest in sex, and this can pose a problem if you're in a committed relationship with someone.
If you're on medication and you notice these problems arising, talk to your doctor about possibly switching your medicine to something different to see if it helps.
If you're not on medication, then you need to tell your doctor about the symptoms and see if he can possible help you find a solution.
No matter how old you are getting to be, you still want to practice safe sex.
In 2012, a report came out that told of the rise of sexually transmitted diseases among senior citizens - especially syphilis.
There are all sorts of solutions you can try for whatever sexual issues you're having as you age.
The "little blue pill" known as Viagra isn't the only thing that works!
As a man, there are many anti aging tactics you can try to slow time and regain your youthful abilities.
Not everything will work and your body won't respond to every treatment.
The key is to keep trying different things until you find what works for you - and then be vigilant about your health so that your body can perform up to your standards.
The earlier in life that you honor good nutrition the longer you can stave off the signs of aging.
Nutrition is critical to helping prevent disease and increasing your years of life.
It can also help you to look and feel younger.
It’s important that you fill your diet with as many antioxidants as possible.
These are chemicals that help your body to fight off environmental oxidation that can lead to faster aging.
Antioxidants are found in high amounts in these foods:
· Green including kale, spinach, turnip, and mustard greens
· Red grapes
While these are foods that have a high concentration of antioxidants, they can be found in a wide variety of foods.
You’ll especially find antioxidants in fruits and vegetables, but some are even found in meat, poultry, and whole grains.
Avoid Processed Foods
If you eat a diet that consists of foods that aren’t processed including fruits, veggies, lean meats, dairy products, and whole grains you’ll be in the best shape.
Processed foods, on the other hand, contain little or no nutrition and often are high in calories from sugar, salt, and fat.
You’ll want to avoid eating processed foods as much as possible.
Processed foods contain:
· White flour
· White sugar
· Trans fats
· Artificial colors
· Artificial flavors
· Artificial sweeteners
These are all things you’ll want to avoid in order to slow down the aging process.
These foods cause your body to experience inflammation, which is responsible for weight gain, joint problems, aging skin, and the increased risk of disease.
If you follow the simple advice to eat “real” food that hasn’t been processed you’ll have fewer signs of aging and better health.
One of the biggest concerns for someone who’s getting older is mobility.
You may be worried that you won’t be able to get around the way you once did.
Some causes of mobility problems include:
· Muscle weakness
· Vision problems
· Medication use
· Heart disease
· Balance problems related to stroke
Many problems with mobility can be prevented by taking good care of your body with nutrition and exercise.
The more activity you get, the more mobile you’ll likely be in your senior years.
It’s also important to treat vision problems that might make it difficult to move properly.
Sometimes just by changing your glasses prescription or getting treatment for cataracts you can return to normal mobility.
If you experience muscle weakness or balance problems you should always check with your doctor.
An adjustment in medication could be all that you need.
But if medication isn’t the problem, exercise could be the solution.
Weak muscles can be strengthened.
Even in your senior years you can begin a fitness routine that includes aerobic activity and strength training.
Working your muscles will help to prevent fractures and allow you to move freely.
Make sure to talk with your doctor before beginning a fitness routine to make sure it’s appropriate for you.
But in most cases, it will be appropriate to take a walk each day and to lift some light weights for your upper body.
Just these simple steps can slow the aging process and help you to remain independent for a long time.
Aging doesn’t have to mean giving up the things you love to do.
There’s an old joke that says that married men live longer - or maybe it just seems that way.
All laughing aside, it is true that men who have a spouse outlive single men and even men who are in an intimate relationship but haven’t tied the knot.
Entering into a committed relationship has been referred to as ‘settling down.’
That’s because marriage can be a benefit in emotional and physical ways.
When a married man has a problem or is worried about something, his wife is there to offer much needed emotional support.
When he becomes ill or is injured, a wife offers physical support.
Often, spouses develop such a bond that there’s also an underlying friendship that makes it easier to find a soft place to fall when the world isn’t always kind.
Men who are married tend to achieve more in life both academically and at work due to a more stable living environment.
There’s a comfort felt in knowing that they are loved and that someone is rooting for their achievements and comforting them when things go badly at work.
Men who were once risk takers learn to think in terms of how their actions will affect their loved ones.
They want to be around for the sake of their wives and eventually, for the sake of their children.
Married men live longer because they’re happier and less stressed than single men are.
When there’s a situation that needs to be handled, there’s someone they can go to and share the burden.
They also have someone who’s concerned with their health and their overall well being.
They’re more likely to go see the doctor when they have a physical problem at their wife’s suggestion.
The mental, emotional and physical side of having sex on a regular basis has much support in the medical field.
Men who faithfully engage with their intimate partner enjoy lowered blood pressure and reap the benefits of testosterone.
Sex can lower your risk of having a heart attack, releases the body’s feel good hormones and keeps the prostate healthier.
While sex can be a key component to helping give a man a longer lifespan, cheating on your intimate partner can do the opposite as feelings of guilt and remorse can lead to stress.
Married men live longer by being part of a family that plays together.
Having regular outings - marital play dates if you will - can boost energy levels, add relaxation and relieve stress.
Although it may surprise you to learn that drinkers live longer, medical reports have shown that alcohol has many health benefits that can increase the years you live.
You may have heard of the dangers of drinking, but what you may not have heard is that it’s binge drinking that’s dangerous (even deadly).
Drinking alcohol like red wine can lessen your chances of getting hit later in life with some form of heart disease.
People who drink beer have less chance of developing problems with their gallbladder.
While drinking too much has been known to cause liver problems such as cirrhosis of the liver, this is a risk mainly for those who become alcoholics rather than for those who know how to drink responsibly.
You can have drinks every day and not become an alcoholic.
For those who like to have a glass or two of wine with their meals, the benefits reach far into an advanced age.
One of the risks that you can lower by drinking wine is the risk of developing some types of cancers.
How is that wine can help drinkers live longer?
Having a glass or two of wine as part of your daily consumption shows up in your HDL (this is the body’s good cholesterol).
It’s known as the good cholesterol because of how it helps your heart.
People with a high level of HDL are not as much at risk of having a heart attack as those who have a poor HDL level.
Because drinking is often associated with a social gathering, people who drink tend to make sure that they pencil in time for relaxation and fun.
No matter how hectic, how stressful or how tough their job is, they can leave all of the stress of it behind when they engage in drinking socially with their friends and peers.
Having fun is a great way to lower the risk of heart attacks by lowering the amount of stress.
Drinking socially helps people learn to leave the office behind and have a life separate from work.
Drinkers live longer also because they tend to be more physically active than people who don’t drink.
They don’t sit around the house and become couch potatoes.
If you’re wondering which alcoholic beverage has the most health benefits, red wine is the best choice.
Now that’s a reason to smile! Have you ever gotten tired of advice to ‘cut out this’ or ‘cut out that’ if you want to see your golden years?
Don’t worry about what you should or shouldn’t do and instead, concentrate on simply being content with where you are in life.
There’s always something positive no matter what your life is like.
Have a healthy appreciation for the things you have, for the people who love you rather than focusing on what you don’t have and the people who don’t have your best interests at heart.
Learning how to focus is the key to satisfaction.
If your focus is always on the negative things in life, then not only will you become more negative, but the emotions from that will lead to stress.
Of all of the situations you’ve been through, how many of them have lasted forever? None of them.
So you can rest assured that there’s always good headed your way.
Happiness isn’t defined by one simple definition.
What makes you happy might make your neighbor extremely sad.
You can’t choose the events that come into your life.
What you can choose is how you let them affect you.
Happy people live longer because they’ve learned the key to contentment is found within themselves.
Didn’t get the job they wanted?
They know it wasn’t that they didn’t try, but rather that there’s a better one down the road.
Car broke down? They look at the positive.
Maybe it broke down to prevent them from being in an accident had they kept traveling.
That doesn’t mean to say that happy people put a fake spin on things but instead choose to turn a negative into a positive.
Does this mean that people who are happy never experience failures? Never make mistakes?
Absolutely not. It means that they don’t let those experiences define who they are.
Failing at something doesn’t make you a failure. It’s simply life’s way of saying, ‘not this way.’
While your mood can fluctuate even from hour to hour, you can help stay positive by refusing to allow people or circumstances to define your happiness.
Happy people live longer by not giving control of their emotional well being over to another.
Sure, others can disappoint you - but that doesn’t mean that they can steal your happiness unless you allow them to.
Happy people also know that the key to happiness is reaching goals.
Go after what you want in life and don’t forget to take the time to reach out to others while you’re going after your goals.
By giving to others, you gain a sense of satisfaction and inner happiness from having helped someone else.
As you get older, you start to notice some of the signs of aging. One of the first changes that becomes apparent is that your skin starts to wrinkle, sag, and get drier.
You may also notice that you put weight on in different places.
And as you age there are also changes in your joints that might make it more difficult for you to maintain your independence and mobility.
You may also see changes in your mental health.
While you can’t completely stop the aging process, there are things you can do that will slow it down so that you can maintain your independence and live a full and happy life in your senior years.
So it's important to keep researching all the various areas where you can create a lifestyle that will slow the aging process and support you in having a full life.
