Anti-aging and staying youthful!

By Master Stylist Vicki Ogden-O’Fee

We all think about aging at some stage. I personally think that age is just a number. The age we reflect to others is made up by how we act, dress and look. We will all get older that’s inevitable, but we can look after ourselves and be the best individual we can be.

Looking after our skin should be a top priority.

Our face is quite often the first place we start showing the signs of aging. Fine lines and wrinkles may creep in, but if we look after our skin we can prevent and repair these.

Here are my anti-aging tips that I live by…

  • Always wash your make up off at night.
  • Drink at least 2L water per day.
  • Regular facials work.

  • Relax in the bath or a spa.
  • Laugh and have fun.
  • Wine is good.
  • Wear colours that are in your colour palette, so you always look great and your skin glows.

Wearing your colour palette

  • Get regular check-ups with your Doctor.
  • Keep moving, exercise. Even if I don’t get actual exercise in during the day it is always my goal to do at least 10,000 steps per day.
  • A great hairstyle and hair cut that suits you and enhances your facial features is important.
  • Going Grey doesn’t mean letting yourself go, choose your look and “Rock it”.

I am a great believer in looking after your skin. Every morning and night I have a regime for my skin. You don’t always need the most expensive skincare. I personally think that being consistent with good products is just as important.

For years now I have used the Pure Fiji Facial Skincare range. I like it because it’s affordable and has great results. My favourite product is the Dilo Oil!

We have our chronological age which is the number of years a person has been alive, while biological age refers to how old a person seems. Biological age, also referred to as physiological age, takes many lifestyle factors into consideration, including diet, exercise and sleeping habits, to name a few as well as many of the points I have listed above. Age is just a number. If you don’t take time to look after yourself, no one else will.
