How Men Can Fight the Aging Process | Qualicare North York
Do you think women are the only ones looking for the fountain of youth? Think again! Men are also looking for ways to slow down the aging process.
Our team of in-home care providers at Qualicare North York wants men to know how they, too, can work to combat the aging process so they can look as young as they feel as they age.
Let’s take a look at some ways you can really turn back the clock:
Did You Put on Your Sunscreen?
Did you know that skin cancer is more prevalent in men than it is in women?
Therefore, it is important to make sure you are putting on sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 30 every day before stepping outdoors. Even on cloudy days, sunscreen should be worn to help lower your risk of skin cancer, as well as protect your skin from aging faster.
Are You Standing Up Straight?
While you might not think posture has anything much to do with your overall health, it actually affects your health quite a bit, especially as you age.
When you exhibit poor posture, you are putting yourself at risk for:
- Breathing problems
- Joint pain
- Walking difficulty
Therefore, it is important to take steps to maintain a healthy posture so that you are able to experience less stress on your joints and muscles and see an increase in your mood!
Is It Time to Skip the Sugar?
As sweet as sugar is, it can increase your chances of having wrinkles and dehydrated skin, which will not help when you are trying to look younger than your numerical age. Therefore, while the occasional candy bar and dessert is OK, it is important not to overindulge.
Also, it is important to beware of protein bars, flavored yogurts and even juice. While they are thought to be healthy, they can have just as much sugar as a candy bar!
