Found an exceptionally comprehensive article on Grapes, from The World’s Healthiest Foods. So much I didn’t even consider with grapes, Continue reading “Are grapes a fountain of youth?”

Anti-Age Time

Does it feel like the last 10 years flew by as if it were just one year? What happened?! Literally, what actually happened?

DdC Time flying

Why time flies so fast as we age

Does it feel like the last 10 years flew by as if it were just one year?  What happened?! Literally, what actually happened?

You’re probably familiar with the notion that time flies when you’re having fun, and even faster when you’re busy. Would that imply that, if you want to slow down the pace of years passing, you do nothing and have no fun? Continue reading “Anti-Age Time”

Anti-Ageing Spice – Turmeric

What do you do with spices you don’t use that often? Well, for Turmeric — use as an anti-ager!

DdC-Turmeric

Turmeric as an anti-ager

I like using things to the end and don’t like clutter of things that I don’t use. I’ve had Turmeric in my spice rack for so long. Don’t even remember if it was ever used, or why I even bought it. But there it is. Thought, could this be beneficial in some other way? Continue reading “Anti-Ageing Spice – Turmeric”

Can collagen be rebuilt?

Yes, there’s help in rebuilding collagen, despite past damage

Like me, you probably know that among other fun things, sun, alcohol, and sugar are super evil at destroying collagen.

Been struggling with the most loved sun and sugar, forever and a day, plus 40 somethings years.  If only I can stop with the sugar — listen-up brain! Please stop making me crave the white yummy powder sugar! Sorry, had to express this one out loud! Been reading that saying stuff out loud may work…let’s see.

But regardless of what we do or consume that destroy our skin, below is promising in rebuilding collagen.

Is White hair the new Blonde?

Gone are the days of masking our greying hair. Be glorious in your white-crown Be unique, be cool, be real, be beautiful.

DdC-the silver lining

Wouldn’t white hair just be a shade lighter than platinum blonde?

Gray/white hair is one of the ‘signs’ of ageing — let`s just say Silver instead of grey, much grander. Anyways,  I’m guessing that’s probably why dying our hair is so popular, beyond the ‘fun-to-have’ colours. Continue reading “Is White hair the new Blonde?”

Free Anti-Age Remedy: Mind Over Matter

The reality of what you feel, see, and think are controlled by you…or rather your brain. Repeated thoughts tend to influence our perception. If we always keep feeding our brains with thoughts of getting older, than we may in fact start acting, feeling, and even looking that way!

Anti-age your face with Omega-3 fatty acid

Consuming Omega 3 helps reduce wrinkles. How about applying this stinky oily supplement on your face?!

Omega-3 Supplements, put in small glass

Put some stinky fish oil on your face!

I had tonnes of fish oil supplements on-hand before heading out to a natural path, who suggested alternate brands with more effective ratio of EPA to DHA; as a side: I’m not even going try to claim which is the best ratio, as your doctor may advise what’s better for unique you. So, what am I supposed to do with all my ‘useless’ omega supplements. Continue reading “Anti-age your face with Omega-3 fatty acid”

Increase your network-make eye contact

Did we make more eye contact as kids? It seems that kids make more eye contact with everyone — indiscriminate of age, gender, or any other aspect. Maybe that’s why they can increase they network, oh, I mean friends.

More eye contact amongst the young

Did we make more eye contact as kids? It seems that kids make more eye contact with everyone — indiscriminate of age, gender, or any other aspect. Even if a child looks away when you return their gaze, they still come back to look again. Guess kids just remain curious about the ones they don’t know. Adults that have a youthful spirit, also do the same; they still make eye contact with strangers. But in many cases, adults making eye contact with people they don’t know? Not so much.

Can your skin look better after drinking…alcohol?

The more we drank in our 20s, the better we looked in mirrors. The more we drink now…well, now the mirrors LIE!

the-age-less mirrorIt seems that as we age our skin shows damage quicker, and that damage takes longer to reverse, or remains damaged…argh, that really sucks!  And when it comes to drinking alcohol and our skin, it seems the damage is instantly apparent on our face with every drink.

In our twenty’s the mirrors were our friends. With every drink, we seemed to look better and better. Continue reading “Can your skin look better after drinking…alcohol?”

How to avoid the crisis in midlife

So, if you’re 40, and you live to 80 (average for USA/Canada), then I guess 40 is midlife. Mid-life? As in midlife Crisis?!

The road ahead maybe smoother than the road you were on.
The road ahead may be longer, than the road you were on.

So, if you’re 40, and you live to 80 (average for USA/Canada), then I guess 40 is midlife. Mid-life? As in midlife Crisis?! Me no like those words 🙁 Too many bad associations, namely the so-called crisis. And when I looked into mid-life crisis, more upsetting that I imagined.

I say, instead of thinking of 40 as mid-life, think that you’re just starting from zero-years-old. Which in a way you are. Think about it. Continue reading “How to avoid the crisis in midlife”

Stress and Ageing

Stress may be the greatest contributor to ageing. So much so, that it can even effect our DNA, yikes! I’m getting stressed out, just thinking about how to not get stressed! Maybe I should just stop thinking. But hard to do when I see so much stuff to deal with. Too much clutter can be a complex web of decisions for your brain to deal with.

Ageism-Just too Young!

Ageism is discrimination based on age. This has been somewhat accepted by society against elders. But is the youth also victim to age discrimination?

When we were younger, we would discriminate against the elders. Actually even now that we’re older, some of use continue to discriminate. It seems almost acceptable to treat our elders differently. Continue reading “Ageism-Just too Young!”

Anti-Age Your Brain

The process of ageing is characterized by older cells dying, at a faster rate than the creation of new cells. The same holds true for activities that add to our lifelong experience.

The process of ageing is characterized by older cells dying, at a faster rate than the creation of new cells. The same holds true for activities that add to our lifelong experience. As we age, it seems that older activities ‘die off’ quicker than new activities are ‘created’.

When we were youngsters, we tried everything, or almost everything. The ‘almost everything’ was remedied by peer pressure, mostly from our friends: “oh, c’mon…just try it! it’s fun!”. Risks were fun!? Continue reading “Anti-Age Your Brain”

Fine!

Apparently being age-less is to learn from all, especially others — at least according to the-age-Less.com, aka me. To learn from anyone regardless of their age (child, adult, or senior); regardless of ‘rank’ in any hierarchy (work, school, or familial).

Ya, so this is why I am forcibly writing this blog. Forced by my little sister; yes much younger, and lower ‘rank’ within the family…oooo, that didn’t sound very nice, but true. I was the eldest, and in a Brazilian family structure, the ‘higher-ranking’ sibling.
