Stopping the ageing clock starts now for you. No waiting for emergency beauty procedures, or for the day that your muscle-tone starts to let you down! Cutting edge research on how to slow the clock offers you many new options on ways to keep your body, brain and looks both fit and fabulous 자동차 주말여행 코스북 다운로드.


Gone is the idea that you have to be completely laugh-line free – what a relief! No more expressionless puffy faces from too many Botox shots, fillers and wrinkle-zapping laser treatments. The new trend is all about promoting radiance and texture, and this is how it’s done:

  • Finer fillers with gentler needles are being used to correct uneven colouring and minimise pores.
  • Advanced laser and radiofrequency devices encourage your skin to produce more collagen and to lift your skin tissue.
  • Mild vacuum systems are used to clean out pores, exfoliate skin and infuse. So, no more puffy or surprised-look: even-textured and radiant skin is the prize.


While you focus on great muscle tone, you could be overlooking your bones! How do you stop them from becoming weaker and thinner? With maximum calcium absorption. You need Vitamin D to get the best hit out of calcium, and the easiest way is to get some time in the sun! If it’s winter, you’ll find Vitamin D in salmon, tuna, and eggs. Here are a few food mistakes that may block or reduce calcium absorption:

  • Cooking your green vegetables with salt. Dark green veggies are a great source of calcium and the sodium can block calcium.
  • Drinking fizzy mineral water.
  • Relying on supplements alone. Talk to your doctor or pharmacist about calcium supplements are easy to metabolise, but include calcium-rich foods in your daily diet – your body likes getting its calcium shot the natural way.
  • Forgetting to take other vitamins and minerals – like Vitamin D and K, selenium, and magnesium – at the same time.

Sleek, toned, strong and supple – with High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT), there’s no reason to sacrifice any of these. Ever.

HIIT is an exercise strategy where you alternate short periods of intense anaerobic and aerobic exercise with less-intense recovery periods. Whether you have no problem getting up at dawn to hit the machines, or you’re travelling the business circuit, living out of a suitcase, you can adapt HIIT to suit your situation. Schedule too tight for gym today? Then a few repeats of the 7-minute-workout is right for you. Prefer to workout competitively with other people? Then Crossfit is probably the best option.


Sure, you know that you need to get some sleep and slow down on binge-drinking to keep your brain fit, but here are a few tips you might not have considered:

  • Wear a cycling helmet. Moderate to severe head injuries early in life increase your risk for cognitive impairment in old age, and concussions are the worst. Wear the helmet!
  • Being a cynic ages you. Research from Finland found that people who generally see the worst in others are more likely to develop dementia. Depression among cynics may play a role in how pessimism is linked to dementia. So, find a way to see the best in people.
  • Learn another language. A study published in the journal Neurology found that learning a second language through apps like DuoLingo could be more effective at fighting dementia than any available drugs! So, sprichst du Deutsch? Why not?

Lastly, treat yourself to that glass of wine after work. Researchers at The Loyola University Medical Centre found that one glass of red wine a day could make you 23% less likely to develop dementia. Cheers!
