10 Ways to Add 10 Years to Your Life

dr charles crutchfield1) Get an annual physical 

examination. 

Make sure it is from a doctor you are familiar with, and try to maintain continuity of care by scheduling an examination with the same doctor every year. The examination should include the standard blood tests for your age including, but not limited to, the evaluation of blood sugar, thyroid and cholesterol.

Your physical examination should also evaluate blood pressure, weight, listen to your heart and lungs, and include a full skin exam. Women, specifically, should schedule a Pap smear and mammogram, if appropriate. Men, specifically, should have an age-appropriate prostate evaluation.

If you have not had a general medical examination in the past one year, it is time. Ask your doctor how often you should schedule future examinations. Don’t forget to ask your doctor about planning to evaluate your hearing, vision and dental health.

 

2) Keep total cholesterol 

below 200. 

This can be achieved with diet, exercise, and/or, if necessary, prescription medications. Have your doctor review your ratio of HDL/LDL cholesterol with you, too.

 

3) Keep blood pressure 

below 125/75. 

Your doctor may even recommend a slightly different number. This can be done with diet, exercise, and/or, if necessary, prescription medications.

 

4) Keep blood sugar 

below 100. 

This can be done with diet, exercise, and/or, if necessary, prescription medications.

5) Keep weight less than 20% of average of your height. 

For most men, this means keeping weight under 200 pounds, and for most women under 170 pounds. Your doctor can give you the exact weight figure most appropriate for you.

 

6) Exercise at least 20 minutes per day four 

to five times per week. 

The benefits of regular exercise are that it reduces cholesterol, improves arthritis, reduces gouts, prevents heart disease, helps diabetes, promotes circulation, improves energy and improves mental ability.

 

7) Do not drink or use drugs while driving, fishing, swimming, or boating.  

 

8) Do not smoke. 

This is probably the worst health habit that leads to more preventable health problems than any other single item.

 

9) Do not keep guns accessible to those who

 will misuse them.  

This especially means loaded guns that could lead to the death of children, grandchildren, spouses, or relatives. If guns are kept in the house, keep them unloaded and ammunition in a separate place or keep them in a secure safe.

 

10. Practice safe 

driving habits. 

Wear seatbelts at all times in the car, no matter what speed you are going, and do not take them off until the car is at a dead stop. Never text and drive.

Resurfacing Skin with Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion on SkinMicro-exfoliation & HydroPlus Treatments The Revolutionary Solution for Age-Defying Skin

Micro-exfoliation is a skin-revitalizing treatment that helps repair skin that is damaged from the sun, scars, acne and the unwanted effects of aging. A trained professional uses gentle abrasion and vacuum to remove the dead, outer layer of skin.

Micro-exfoliation using the original Crystal Free Diamond-Tome™ wands removes the dead, outer layer of skin by gently exfoliating the skin with natural diamond chips, while vacuuming the dead skin cells away in a clean and controlled manner.
Removing the outer layer of dead skin leaves a smoother texture and promotes the growth of healthy new skin cells.

When To Use Micro-exfoliation:

  • Reduction of minor to moderate early aging and fine lines
  • Minor revision of scars
  • Sun damaged skin
  • Hyper-pigmentation reduction
  • Reduction of acne scars
  • Age spots
  • Extraction of blackhead and whiteheads

Looking your best doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive, either.

Experts say most of us really only need to pay attention to a few basic beauty secrets — essentials that can help you look and feel great without spending a lot of time or money.

To help you find the beauty tips that really work, WebMD talked to top skin care and beauty experts, who parted with their personal tips for looking great:

Beauty Tip 1: Never Underestimate the Power of Moisturizer

Whether your skin is dry, normal, or even oily, if you can only afford one skin care product, experts say, your dollars will be well spent on a good moisturizer. “Sometimes, all you really need is a good moisturizer and a mild cleanser, and you can take years off your face,” says New York University professor Rhoda Narins, MD, president of the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery. When skin is dry, says Narins, every wrinkle is accentuated, making you look older. Continue reading 5 Beauty Secrets
