Remember the days when people saw anti aging as something from a sci-fi movie? The fountain of youth was the Holy Grail and miracle remedies that could reduce the appearance by ten or twenty years were the stuff that dreams were made of.

Well, fast forward to the present and we find that these dreams are no longer a myth. Through science and specifically, the cutting edge science of genomics, women are finding that, without too much trouble, skin beauty and healthy body cells can be achieved.

Follow these five anti-aging tips and optimize your health:

1. Watch Your Lifestyle

Living a healthy lifestyle is what its all about. If you live life in the fast lane, chances are you'll pay for it in the end. If you are a smoker or you drink alcohol excessively, you need to change these habits. This also goes for poor eating habits and excessive exposure to the sun. All of these things speed up the aging process and, if you continue to live this type of lifestyle, even anti-aging supplements may not be able to help. It's important to remember that our skin cells are affected by everything we eat or drink, just as our bodily organs are.

2. Eat for Good Skin Health

Good women's health begins with eating healthy foods. Ensure that you eat balanced meals with plenty of green leafy vegetables and fruits. It is also important to eat protein enriched foods like eggs or nuts as these foods maintain good health for the joints and the bones. Skin beauty relies on general health and this can only be attained through healthy eating and weight maintenance. It is much easier to slow down the aging process if the body is getting all of the nutrients it requires to repair the damage to cells and build new cells every day.

3. Drink Water

I know you probably get tired of hearing it but its true 'you must drink water' because of the many benefits it gives to your body. Without a decent supply of water, the body cannot function efficiently, either inside or out. Water adds life to all parts of the body, including your skin. It brightens your complexion, helps rejuvenate skin cells to promote anti aging, and adds moisture to your body. Water is probably the most readily available anti-aging product you can get your hands on! So, replace those sodas (and diet sodas) with a healthy dose of water.

4. Stay in Shape

Staying in shape with exercise will also help with the anti-aging battle. Exercise encourages good bone and joint health and helps with the flow of blood through your body. That's why many people say that exercise "gets your blood pumping!" The blood carries oxygen with it through your body, which is necessary for good overall health.

5. Use Anti-aging Supplements and Creams

Through the cutting edge science of genomics, anti-aging products are now being developed to aid in cell rejuvenation, which is needed for slowing down the aging process.

Genomics is the study of the complete DNA makeup of organisms. The recent discovery that is crucial to those interested in anti-aging products is that the repair of cells and the creation of healthy, strong cells is a major key to slowing the aging process. The new anti-aging products are all-natural and come in pills, creams or patches. Anti-aging products based on genomics help to provide the right amount of ingredients (vitamins and nutrients) needed by the body to repair cells and build new, healthy cells.

These five tips combined can help maximize the results for your anti-aging efforts. You'll feel and look better than ever as you pass through the stages of life.
