    If you are currently in your 20s, what beauty measures are you using to delay aging?

    I'm not too worried about aging yet, but I firmly believe that the best way to look good is to eat a healthy and balanced diet, drink lots of water, and exercise.  Many people (especially Americans) don't get enough nutrients, which can lead to premature aging.  Make sure that you're eating plenty of fruits, vegetables, and proteins in order to look your best.

    Drinking at least eight glasses of water a day will not only keep you healthy, but it also helps your skin glow and look healthy too.

    Exercising helps keep your body lean and toned.  While it won't prevent aging, it can help reduce how much fat you put on and also fill out areas where you may have cellulite.  Being physically fit will make you appear more youthful.

    I hope this helps you!

    I'm 28 and people still occasionally think I'm in high school and I get IDed a majority of the time (legal drinking age is 18 here) so it honestly hasn't crossed my mind as I'm clearly not aging very rapidly yet!

    I am suuuuuper diligent about staying out of the sun when the UV is high and using sunscreen whenever I'm outside though as my skin is very easily burned and I'm at a high risk for skin cancer. I've always heard that reducing sun exposure/damage is important in keeping your skin from aging and while not aging is not my primary reason for doing it, I suppose it's a nice side effect.

    I love it when I see commercials on television and ads everywhere promoting creams and beauty products to keep you younger.

    The truth is, we cannot run away or delay the process of aging. It is natural and will happen, whether we are ready or not.

    There is no magic or secret potion you can use to keep you looking younger.

    Aging gracefully and accepting who you are is all you can do; maybe dye your hair if it makes you look younger.

    Don't overdo it with alcohol or drugs, since these will speed up aging (I have seen it, and it is not pretty).

    If you want to appear more put together, try and keep stress at a minimum and take care of your body inside and out.

    In my experience, this helps give you a more radiant and inviting look throughout your life.

    Aging is to do with our cell division rate to fix damages to our body.

    What happen is, every person their cell can only divide a set number of times, when ur cells can no longer divide, u die. Human on average can divide cell around 80 times, while Asians can usually divide more times then Europeans, which contribute to Asian adults of the same age, usually look younger the European adult of the same age.

    When our body is able to divide cell at a speed faster then damages, then we will be biological youthful, when it is dividing at a speed slower then damage, we will start showing the sign of aging. But the problem, is when we use a higher percentage of cell division, our cell division would also slow down, thus if we use 20% of cell division, our cell division speed also slow down by 20%, when we use 50%, our cell division speed also slow down by 50%. As a result, when we get older, we also biologically age, turning back ur biological clock, is, about taking care of ur body, so u stop causing damages to ur body, so ur body can repair damage at a rate, faster then u damage. That is also how women, aging wrinkle cream beauty product work, these products, help to maintain ur cells, to prevent damage, while ur cells repair damages to ur face, after a while, all ur wrinkle disappear (In other word, these beauty product are also health product)

    There are 2 ways, to slow down ur aging speed, (1) take care of ur body, stay fit and healthy, so there are less reason for ur body to be damage, which would later lead to the need of cell division to fix it (2) some people just simply have a higher cell division rate then others, This is genetic, there is nothing we can do about it, for example, Asians people usually have higher cell division rate then European, that is why, by 30s, Asian people, usually look younger then their European counterparts. (although u could probably consider marrying an Asian, so, ur kids can have those same good genes, providing u are not worry ur husband start having an affair, by the time, u look old and he still look like a teenager. Unless u are a guy, then u don't need to worry about that LOL)

    This is soooo true, all the creams will not turn back the clock, you can look at popular personalities, they have lots of money to spend and lots of doctors to help (sometimes - Mickey Roark??) and they still age, so settle in and enjoy your life.
