How to age gracefully like a woman who knows what she’s doing.
Before we head into the daily habits, you don’t want to contribute heavily towards premature wrinkles and look older, do you?
Because there are two things that I want to cover quickly that are obvious when it comes to aging.
In fact, for a woman to really ensure that they always look youthful and is vibrant, it is extremely important that they avoid drinking too much alcohol or smoking cigarettes.
These two substances not only destroy skin but also escalate wrinkles to form prematurely due to their extremely high damaging effects on collagen production!
Moreover, smoking is also not just bad for your lungs but given that it escalates aging (the same as alcohol does) it can make you look way older than you really are!
Also, this is exactly why I wanted to briefly talk about these two bad aging habits because a) they are obvious aging factors and b) I didn’t want to waste too much of your time (and mine) writing about the obvious.
Okay so now that we got that out of the way, let’s uncover a few more simple anti-aging ideas that’ll help you stay looking young and healthy as time passes by.
We’ll talk about the best ways to slow the aging process down, so your skin looks extra youthful moving forward from today.
Let’s get started!
7 Powerful Daily Habits of Women Who Age Slowly
1. Maintain blood pressure to slow back the aging process.
According to the National Institute of Health, some of the most important rules to aging well are pretty much within your own control.
Additionally, the woman who has defied the aging process all have a secret they aren’t telling you — they make an effort to maintain their blood pressure.
How do they do this? For starters, they try leading a healthy lifestyle first.
They know that a healthy lifestyle will be a strong shield against high blood pressure and will also prevent the damaging effects high blood pressure has on overall aging.
Additional tips to maintaining your blood pressure include; lowering your cholesterol, maintaining a healthy weight, exercising regularly, drinking alcohol in moderation (or avoiding it altogether), and avoiding the biggest culprit to aging as we already discussed — smoking.
2. Keep your brain sharp.
In a recent research study report, their findings told them point-blank that learning and having an active mind in creativity takes the cake when it comes to having longevity in life.
Not only that but having a sharp brain strengthens personal development and keeps the brain both healthy and young.
Additionally, an active brain is essential to age slowly so what can you do?
First, never stop learning! Continually read and/or listen to podcasts to learn even more.
There are even healthy brain activity games and apps that you can play that also aid as an excellent mental health practice too.
Also even if you are not thinking too far ahead to minimize your chances of getting brain disorders (that are frequent when you come to an older age), the best way to combat an aging brain is to have a healthy brain.
And you can do this by always keeping your brain sharp from learning something new every single day.
3. Don’t Eat Takeout regularly.
When it comes to defying the aging process did you know that there is something more to those homemade meals rather than flaunting them all over social media?
In fact, according to Public Health Nutrition, if a person cooks their own homemade meals up to five times a week, they are more likely to live longer by a whopping ten years than those who choose to eat take out.
Maybe it’s due to the fact that most take-out food is made to taste extra delicious compared to the food we have at home.
However, opting to make your own meals more often is not only cost-effective but doing so really does slow down the aging process.
Plus it’s a pretty easy habit to carry out granted if you already love to cook!
4. Walk but Faster.
To really slow down the signs of aging — walk but faster!
When it comes to defying the aging process every woman comes to the realization that compared to when they were young, their bodies do not work as well as they once did.
Yet, if you want to figure out how to stay looking and feeling youthful for many years down the road, walking at a decent pace will get the job done!
However, the trick to this anti-aging secret of women who have slowed their aging process down is in the speed at which they walk.
A slow walking speed may keep you fit but if you’re thinking that just moving your body is good enough, walking faster will take years off your life.
According to this study by The Journal of the American Medical Association, walking fast will help prevent many health problems and help with longevity.
Moreover, as you age your joints will become achy with every step, so if you can take good care of your body NOW, your chances of slowing down the aging process become really high!

We’re going to go with that you already know the importance of applying sunscreen and moisturizing because this habit is crucial if you want to defy the aging process.
However, there are a few more things to know when it comes to aging slowly especially when it comes to using the right moisturizer ingredients.
So to help you defy the aging process fast so you can always stay looking youthful and young, brush up on these active ingredients to help slow down the signs of aging.
To age slowly, use active ingredients such as:
- Hyaluronic acid improves the capacity of the skin to maintain moisture and the amount of water retained in the skin.
- Natural Oils will rapidly restore radiance and even out your skin tone.
- Vitamin C helps to rejuvenate and remove damage marks on strained skin.
- Glycolic acid is a powerful but mild exfoliating ingredient that acts as a scrub for healthier skin.

6. Stay extra hydrated every single day — even for vanity sakes.
Drinking water is an absolute MUST in order to defy the aging process.
But we’re not just talking about a couple of glasses a day — we’re talking up to a liter and a half!
One woman explains her finding after drinking up to six bottles of water a day (to help with her headaches and poor digestion) which were also relieved.
She goes on to explain that the dark shadows around her eyes all disappeared and the blotches on her skin completely smoothed away.
Her skin even became dewy back to how she felt when she was a child, all because she upped her water intake.
That means staying hydrated is essential.
Always make sure you have fresh water with you throughout your day and take note of how much coffee you are drinking.
Coffee will give you the crash and burn feeling much faster than tea and it goes without saying it will dehydrate you which is horrible for your skin.

7. Eat light & healthy energy snacks throughout the day to defy the aging process.
Keeping healthy snacks on hand to stay fueled not only helps you sustain your energy throughout the day but also regulates your blood sugar.
Having stable blood sugar will not only enhance your skin and appearance, but it will also help sustain your hormone levels, plus help you stay in a positive state.
Light snacks are the key to making this happen, so always make sure you have some handy nuts and fruit in your purse, ready to consume when you feel your energy start to droop.
