I find most people today find ageing to be a malady seeking solutions in jars and bottles, potions and lotions of promises of timeless youth and beauty. If there were such a remedy believe me the discoverer would have become a muliti-billionire ten times round!
Ageing is something which in todays world I find that even the late 35 year olds start worrying about, little realising that their worrying itself could lead to a stray wrinkle here and there. So where lies the answer to ageless beauty? Is it in the use of never ending beauty products? Or in the new age injectables like Botox and the miracles of plastic surgery? How does one find the answer to the elixir of youth and eternal glowing skin?
My answers would perhaps be conservative, not that I would completely believe that the old age rishis and munnis had flawless skins and did not age while meditating in the jungles but to a very large extent it definitely makes be ruminate about their lifestyles. Many years ago I had met a certain Mrs Bendre must have been in her 50's and looked no more than in her late 20's! Except for her graying hair her dusky skin was flawless and taut. Her timeless beauty has been ingrained in my mind these many years and would attribute it perhaps to the simple diet she used to eat of only fresh fruits, dry fruits and juices.
I have travelled quite extensively in my young forty years and met and come across people from various walks of life, on one of , my such trips I met a young 92year old Colonel from the Kumaon regiment. Perfect eye sight, straight walking, did all his driving and gardening himself. Colonel Ram Singh is a living legend. His secret -meditation in the morning, breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a pauper (although that did not stop his two whiskies every evening!). He still enjoys being one with nature rummaging around in garden planting rosemary, chamomile, lettuce.
So besides my natural remedies when I think over what is the answer to slowing down the aging process I would definitely bring it down to a simple lifestyle, eat simple, exercise, de-stress, stop worrying, meditate and ofcourse follow a regular skin and hair care program.
So to make things easier for you the answer to ageless youth and beauty is a combination of good health, simple diet, exercise, less stress and a regular skin care program which would mean taking care of ones skin from an early age.
Lots of fresh raw food, plenty of water, regular exercise, sleep, de-stressing whenever you get the time to do so, regular skin care, meditation all go a long way in what you are going to look like at 90!
