How To Retain a Youthful Apearance

Everyone is chasing the fountain of youth. If you read magazine articles,  listen to radio commercials or see TV or youtube commercials it seems that these days eternal youth is yours to have and as easy to acquire as shopping with’s one click setting. Just buy this product, eat that food or join this exercise class and revel in the new young you.

Of course this is all nonsense. The fountain of youth does not exist. In order to age gracefully (yes we all have to age to a certain degree) you need to live your actual youth with care. Treat your skin well. Eat a proper diet. Exercise any which way you like, but exercise. And don’t mistreat your hair.

Your hair is the first thing people will notice about you. You can have the best skin in the world and the most beautiful clothing and shoes, but if your hair is a mess, it can ruin the impression of youth and vitality that you are trying to give.

Hair issues can come from many different problems. Excessive heat styling and chemical based hair care products can cause hair damage. Poor diet and lifestyle habits as well as the genes you inherited from your parents can also play a role in how much hair you will have and how it  will look as you get older. Therefore it is of utmost importance that you put the proper care into your hair.

Use a shampoo and conditioner that not only cleanses your hair, but also works to enhance it. One that’s all natural. Like Pura d’Or’s Pro Organic line. You can sign up for it at It’s a subscription service so you never run out. This will ensure that your scalp is constantly being fed the proper nutrients to grow strong hair. It will keep your hair happy giving you a vibrant youthful look to take along wherever your day may carry you.
