Live to 100 And Don”t Feel the Age? It’s Happening Around Telomeres!

 

Do you want to  live up to 100, dance at your great grandchild’s weeding?  it’s not a whim.

Modern scientific work is making this happen. Thanks to the research on genes, DNA, stem cells and telomeres,  Scientists have unravelled the aging mechanism of human body,  the aging switch is being targeted for an optimal age management.   Time has come for people to live not only longer , but healthier.

Some dissidents might argue, people age and die, it is a natural process. we don’t have control over it. Well, it is only partially true, we do age and die, but we can slow down our aging process, lengthen our health span. With the advancement of anti-aging science, we get lot more information and knowledge to fight disease and aging process. all these knowledge can be applied to our daily life, transform our lifestyle, help us achieve optimal health,  then  stretch our life span…. Yes, it’s all possible.

Nowadays, anti-aging science are focusing on the  yellow caps(genetic codes) at the end of each DNA strand called telomeres.   They are like a biological clock. Each time our cells divide, telomeres get a bit shorter,  telling our cells how old to act.   In 2009, 3 scientists Elizabeth Blackburn, Carol W. Greider and Jack W. Szostak were award with the 2009 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for their discovery of telomerase, the enzyme that replenishes the telomeres.

For the first time in human history, people get an indepth understanding of  our body and aging on the cellular level, which  lead us to find best possible lifestyle that supports the lengthening of telomeres.

I would like to share an online interview article conducted on Elizabeth  Blackburn  by  the Guardian.  Thru Elizabeth Blackburn’s explanation, you can get ample information on this anti-aging  mechanism in our body.  As for how to turn back bioclock and slow down aging , it is surprisingly  up to us.

https://www.theguardian.com/science/2017/jan/29/telomere-effect-elizabeth-blackburn-nobel-prize-medicine-chromosomes

Wondering how to apply the valuable knowledge into action,  I want to quote what Elizabeth said in the interview: “Having adequate omega-3 fatty acids really seems to relate to better telomere maintenance and the easiest way to ensure that may be a supplement. It is also in foods such as oily fish and flaxseeds. There is some data about vitamin D but the studies are somewhat incomplete. It is pretty clear that if people have a balance much more towards a wholefoods diet versus a diet high in processed foods, red meat, sugary drinks and highly refined white bread – again, all the things we know already are bad for our health – you see quantifiable effects on telomeres.

Yes, as it’s always  the case, we have BIG say in how long, how well we can live.  We can better our health from daily improvements, better water, better diet, more exercises, less sedentary time, less stress, more meditation, less depression, more happiness……to live longer!

  1. Wash face twice a day with foaming cleanser or gentle glycerin soap:  Do not use oil cleanser, for it will lead to more oil on the skin. foam is more effective to wash away the excessive oil. Best to wash your face before bedtime and in the morning.

2. Use Oil-Free Cosmetics: Yes, oily skin need oil-free treatment. Foundations that are oil-free and mattifying can also help to minimize shine.

8 Easy Breezy Skin Care Tips to Get Great Skin

Easy tips for great skin

 No matter how old we are, we want to look at our best.  The  flawless, blemish and acne-free, glowing face is what every woman desires , and more importantly, We can follow the following easy skincare tips to get great skin :
 1. Remove make-up every night.  It’s so important to go to bed with clean face. The skin needs to breathe overnight. And makeup prevents that, as leaving it on overnight clogs the pores which may cause blemishes and/or blackheads. Don’t possess a makeup remover? Just put some olive oil on a cotton pad and gently massage the oil onto your face to get rid of the makeup and dirt.

2. Apply sunscreen every day . Skincare is 24/7 job. Do this even on cloudy days.  with SPF of at least 15 that blocks both UVA and UVB rays. Since a lifetime of sun exposure can cause wrinkles, age spots and other skin problems, you have to protect your skin from the sun. Make sure the label reads ‘noncomedogenic’ or ‘nonacnegenic’ so that the product does not tend to block pores. if you head to beach or tropical destination, be sure to take with you sunscreen with SPF 40 plus.skin care tips

3. Eat/ drink for your skin.  Water makes up the vital part of our body, as well as skin. Your skin needs lots of fresh fruit and veggies,  and pure water to retain its moist and suppleness. A diet rich in vitamin C and low in fats and sugar promotes radiant skin. Consider adopting a low-sugar diet, which can keep insulin levels down, allowing cells to maintain a healthy balance.

4. Break a sweat  Running, jogging and Yoga, Pilate will give your body the necessary blood circulation, and also accelerate the cleansing process of your entire body. You will notice a glow on your face after work-out.
5. Sleep good.  Skincare happens during sleep too. make sure you get 8 hours sleep, your skin loves that!  more than that, choose to sleep around between 10 to 11 when skin cells start repair  and regrowth.
6. Wash your face first with warm water then end it with cold water.  Good  skincare takes wise cleaning methods. Warm water opens your pores and let out all the dusts and dirt in there, while cold water effectively closes the pores, leaving face ready for better absorption of serum and lotion.
7. Do facial massage once a week. A gentle facial massage with oils could work wonders. Depending on your skin type, choose oils from mustard, coconuts, almond  as they are excellent nourishing agents which help to get glowing skin.
8. Let go of stress.  Skin care goes deeper than skin-deep. When you are stressed, you tend to break out more. This is because stress causes your body to produce cortisol and other hormones, making the skin more oily. Practice stress management techniques like breathing exercises, yoga and meditation. The more you meditate, the more you radiate.  The magic chain reaction here is , when you yoga or meditate, stress takes leave of you, you sleep better, hence get better skin.
