The Super 7 Age-Defying List

Age-Defying Basics

A few age-defying basics to look young provide super food for thought.  Age-Defying AdventureOh sure, we all know that we should be proud of our age, cherish the memories, and

enjoy the knowledge that goes along with age.  Does it not feel great though when someone says we do not look our age and that we look younger than we are?  Why is that such a compliment?  Think about it.  The statement says that a person has taken care of themselves. That is a badge of honor to wear.  So, what are a few basic tricks to look younger?

Age-Defying Basics: Dress for a Younger Look

Look around and take note  of well dressed people who are just a tad younger than you. This certainly does not mean to sport a mini-skirt at sixty. Following any fashion trends that belong to those just a bit younger does take off a few years in appearance.  New fun waits at the mall in shopping on that one too!

 Age-Defying Basics: Makeup Foundation to Defy Age

Mineral make-up is all the rage. The problem is it can settle into creases and amplify their appearance. Always use a good silicone primer to avoid the problem if using a powdered foundation.  In considering liquid foundation, stars and models often wear good tinted moisturizer versus full-coverage foundation. A concentrated concealer is then added on just the darker spots. Dark areas under the eyes form when a person looses fat under the eyes. The ‘cure’ arrives in the form of a highly pigmented cream concealer matched to the exact skin color.  Merely dabbing the cream on and pressing with fingertips works wonders.

Age-Defying Basics:  Blush to Reverse Aging

As with mineral powder foundations, blush powders can also sit on top of the skin and settle into creases. Once again, a good primer fills in those spaces and avoids the powder from settling in. Try using a cream blush in rose or peach shades as an easy remedy that works.

Age-Defying Basics:  Eye Shadow Working Against Aging

Sparkling or shimmering eye shadow spotlights creases. Attention draws to the fine lines in the eyes. Consider using a matte shadow and cover the entire lid. The recommendation is to use gel eyeliner on the top lid as blending will be easier than with a pencil.

Age-Defying Basics: Lips to Defy Age

Plump, gorgeous lips improve looks at any age. Apply a lip treatment or lip moisturizer at the start of the makeup application routine. Then use a gel pencil or translucent wax to seal off the edges of the lips and prevent lipstick running into creases around the mouth. Sheer lipsticks or tinted lip balms work well. For flaky lips, try one of the purchased ‘lip fixers’ or merely pat the lips with the sticky side of scotch tape to remove any loose skin. Always use a lip moisturizing balm. If your lips have become very thin with age, consider permament makeup lip tattooing which is offered at this London salon. Permament make up can also be used to give you thicker brows - as fine brows are also quite aging.

Age-Defying Basics:  Eyeliner and Mascara

Use eyeliner to line eyes close to the upper lashes, stopping short of the eye corners. Curl upper lashes and apply mascara to top lashes only. Attention goes to the top of the eye giving an uplifting look.

Age-Defying Basics:  Hair for Defying Age

Check out the haircuts on actresses as they get older. The secret might be in their hair. Consider a shorter cut with layers that frame the face. Again, the eyes focus up and out. On that same note, blow dry hair up and out to give added volume.

Think of finding useful hints that work for age defying as a sport of sorts, a type of age fitness. Enjoy the adventure in age defying searches, but do not forget to relish in the positives that come with age as well. 

Natural Low Calorie High Protein Foods

Protein represents your body's building blocks: for example, it replenishes lost blood, heals your injuries and scars, provides your system with new cells that develop your body, and it makes your hair and nails grow. While you can find protein in animal and most plant sources, some contain significantly fewer calories than others.

Egg White Omelette
Egg Whites
Eat egg whites if you are watching your calories but ensure that you also get sufficient protein. Each egg white has 3.6 g of protein, but only 17 calories, which means you can eat several without gaining weight and reach your recommended daily intake (RDI) of protein. To meet your RDI, eat 0.6 to 1.2 g of protein per kg per day. If you know your weight in pounds, divide your weight by 2.2 to get how many kg you weigh. Keep in mind that the yolk has more nutrients than the white.

Chicken and Turkey
White turkey meat, with its 178 calories per four oz., contains slightly fewer calories than the same amount of white chicken meat, which contains 196. Chicken has 35.1 g of protein over turkey's 33.6 g per serving. Stay away from all dark poultry meat because it has more calories.

Beans
A vegetarian should eat beans to reach his recommended daily intake of protein, while at the same time avoid gaining weight. Soybeans (edamame) contain the most protein and are low in calories--11.1 g per 1/2 cup cooked, and have only 127 calories. Tofu, a soybean product, has about 30 fewer calories for the same measure (fresh) and almost as much protein. Beans like black beans, lima beans, navy beans and kidney beans have the highest amount of protein; approximately 7.5 g per 1/2 cup cooked. With the exception of navy beans, which have slightly more calories, they all contain only approximately 113 calories per half cup. Lima beans have 8.9 g of protein, but only 115 calories per 1/2 cup. Be aware that "animal proteins like meat, milk, and cheese, tend to be of a higher protein quality than plant proteins," according to the Vegetarian Society.

Fish
White fish has a lot of protein and few calories: for example, 3 oz. of halibut has only 93 calories and 17.7 g of protein, while the same serving of salmon, has a comparable amount of protein but also 127 calories. Sardines in water have a few more grams of protein, however they also have more calories; 130 per can. Tuna contains only 70 calories per 1/4 cup and has 16 g of protein.
