Smokers look significantly older than they actually are, due in part to the way that smoking encourages wrinkle formation around the mouth. If you avoid smoking cigarettes, you can take an important step towards better and younger looking skin.

Don't focus on the numbers in your life. Doctors are paid good money to concern themselves with numbers such as age, weight, and height. If you worry that you are 84 years old, weigh 10 more pounds than you did last year, and have lost an inch of height, you won't have any time to keep yourself useful by doing fun activities.

Think positively and be sure to apply the above insights to help you age gracefully. Good luck in staying youthful!
