A modern woman lives usually about 70-80 years. She’s still young at heart and sometimes she thinks that she has only started to enjoy her life, but cruel statistics says: hey, it’s time to be gathered to fathers. Such a pity. Ancient Greeks believed, that a man dies in his childhood, when he dies being seventy years old.

Nobody argues the fact, that healthy lifestyle is good. But it’s a boring thing for many of us and we prefer to go with the stream – to be sick, to age and to die, but only not to exert ourselves. What if you try this “boring occupation” and get all worked-up? Let’s imaging that the longevity process is one of the sport kinds and compete in life duration. Are you 80 years old? Then congratulate yourself on your first personal record! The years of training weren’t a waste of time. You feel young, sprightly and full of energy. This regular easy training is a part of your life and gives pleasure.

The clones of mutant cells in the form of pigment spots (dermatoheliosis) appear on the parts of skin that undergo sun radiation. Apart from such heterogeneous pigmentation, you may notice a whole range of other changes – wrinkles, flabby, rough and dry skin, etc. Your hair grows grey and thin, or maybe you start suffering from hair loss: your hair comes out and gets replaced with a thin down with bald patches. Nails grow more slowly, become thicker but fragile.

Jane Fonda - dazzling mature beauty

Jane Fonda - dazzling mature beauty

Active exercises help us to strengthen flabby hips and belly, moisturizing milk makes our hands and feet softer. Besides, we can’t forget plastic surgery doing miracles: baggy skin below the eyes and double chin disappear as if with a wave of a magic wand.
