This idea comes from my mother. Last night we discussed about this topic. Actually my mother shared about her self. A couple days ago she met her student. The first students of my mother have been married now. And they become father and mother. Her students said that my mother still look young. I mean with her age right now almost 58 years old. He is a teacher of elementary school. She was started teaching from 1972. We can imagine the age of her student. I thought most of her first student age is 45 years old.
After our conversation last night give me an idea to write about this topic. I also found about several hubbers who also write the similar topic like this. But I want to make something different with them. With my writing style, I hope this hub is useful and easy to understand. I try to give well explanation. We can choose the tips which suitable with our condition.
I found some people doing many ways to look younger. Even spend a lot of money to achieve this. Like: plastic surgery, bottox injection, and many types of skin treatment. In my city I can easily found several treatments to make us younger like: Light Therapy (overcome various problems of skin), Microdermabrsion (Technology who developed by experts from the German Dermatology effectively help to overcome the facial skin), OXY-Skin (Oxy-Skin technology using O2 Liquid Base functioning to stimulate Collagen and elastin tissue formation in the dermis to tighten skin). Microcurrent (a technology in skin tightening that helps reduce signs of aging), Lifting (this treatment works to improve skin elasticity, especially because the age factor). But we have to pay this much.

Personally, I love something natural and it reduces many effects for our body. We can do this every day and without a lot of cost. I want to share some useful tips for us, something simple but easy to do. Here are ten ways to stay looking young:

Free weights (dumbbells and barbells) make the body more solid and strong. This is because the body must remain in a stable position when lifting weights. In lifting and lowering movement of the load, the main muscles in the torso section is responsible for maintaining balance and posture remain perfect. This exercise will protect to against osteoporosis.The first, we could try a light dumbbell.
