Staying young isn’t a sprint; it’s a marathon. Sure, there are plenty of treatments to keep you looking young.

But if you really want to stay youthful, you have to take care of your health–every day.

Here are 10 things you might be doing that are aging you.

1. You’re Eating Inflammatory Foods

We’re all so used to the idea of inflammation we don’t realize just how bad it is for us.

Vegetable oil, margarine, red meat, white bread, sugar… you’re living with a certain level of inflammation.

Not good!

2.Not Getting Your Amino Acids… And Losing HGH!

Human growth hormone keeps you young, and you need amino acids to keep producing it.

There are supplements you can take for this–check it out here.

3.Alcohol!

This one’s sort of a no brainer. Alcohol is dehydrating you. If you can stand it, cut it out!

4. Not Managing Stress

Everyone knows stress is bad. But really, certain kinds of stress are bad. It’s distress vs. eustress.

What makes it bad is if it’s stress you tolerate or stress you actively seek: an inconvenience vs. a challenge.

5. Not Sleeping Enough

It can’t be stressed enough. In the modern age, people are chronically sleep deprived.

This doesn’t just hurt brain function.

It rattles your hormonal systems, leading to deficits of hormones like prolactin.

Get your eight hours.

6. Sunbathing

This one might cause some controversy. As good as the tan looks, it’s not good for your body.

UV ray exposure ages the skin, and, worse than that, is the leading cause of skin cancer.

7. Smoking

Do we even have to explain this one?

8. Neglecting Your Eye Health

The eyelids! How could we not notice?

It’s an oft-neglected part of the body, and perhaps the most at risk just because the skin is so thin and there’s little oil production.

Put some peptide product on your eyelids, and make sure to use sunscreen on them.

9. Not Getting Your Workout In

Exercising is good for your entire body, and it’s good for your aesthetics too.

That’s right, working out has a rejuvenation effect on your skin.

Boxing, spinning, playing tennis and swimming are all great ways to get into motion.

Or, you can finally make time to go for that run you’ve been putting off!

10. Using The Wrong Makeup

Now this one’s just about aesthetics. Did you know using heavier foundation can accentuate your wrinkles?

The particles fall into the crevice of your wrinkles… and make them more prominent.

So you can look a bit younger just by attenuating your makeup a bit more–something a bit lighter.

Vaginal Rejuvenation

Vaginal Rejuvenation Is Here to Stay

It’s been 20 years since Viagra was approved by the FDA for erectile dysfunction, and since that time, attention has been primarily on men’s sexual health.

It’s been 20 years since Viagra was approved by the FDA for erectile dysfunction, and since that time, attention has been primarily on men’s sexual health.

However, the increasing popularity of vaginal rejuvenation suggests the narrative may be changing to address women’s sexual and functional concerns.

In fact, as women become more comfortable discussing topics like vaginal dryness and incontinence, they are more likely to seek help from an expanding number of non-surgical treatment options.

Here’s why vaginal rejuvenation is an important component of women’s health and how it can improve daily functioning and overall well-being.

Why Do Women Seek Vaginal Rejuvenation?

Many women seek vaginal rejuvenation for medical and functional reasons including laxity, dryness, lack of sensation or inability to reach orgasm, and stress incontinence.

What Causes Changes in the Structure and Function of the Vagina and Vulva?

There are a multitude of factors that can impact the structure and function of a woman’s vagina and/or vulva and necessitate vaginal rejuvenation.

More specifically, lower levels of estrogen can reduce moisture production, which is especially prevalent during menopause. In fact, over 50 percent of post-menopausal women experience vaginal dryness, which can cause pain and discomfort during intercourse.

Additionally, childbirth, aging, and menopause may decrease vaginal muscle tone and affect production of collagen and elastin. As a result, vaginal tissue becomes looser and leads to sexual dissatisfaction and urinary issues.

How Can Vaginal Rejuvenation Treatments Address Female Health Concerns?

In cases of vaginal dryness, laser-based procedures (diVa and MonaLisa Touch) have been shown to increase lubrication, stimulate the growth of new collagen, and rejuvenate vaginal mucosa.

Radiofrequency (Viveve System, Votiva and ThermiVa) is another treatment modality that has demonstrated the ability to produce contracture and tightening of tissue, increase collagen, and improve mucosa.

What Is the Future of Vaginal Rejuvenation?

Vaginal rejuvenation is a promising area of medicine and has the potential to change many women’s lives.

Nevertheless, the FDA recently issued an advisory stating that vaginal rejuvenation has not been cleared for treatment of menopause, urinary incontinence or sexual function.

However, many experts believe that this stance has more to do with manufacturers marketing procedures for specific indications, rather than the actual merits of vaginal rejuvenation.

They also cite overwhelming patient testimonials on the benefits of these treatments and feel confident that vaginal rejuvenation is here to stay.

For additional information on vaginal rejuvenation, call an experienced physician in your area to scheduled a consulation.

Sofia Vergara is 45 years old. That’s not a typo. 

Looking beautiful as ever, the Colombian bombshell recently graced the cover of Women’s Health Magazine–naked.

Vergara is embracing the aging process, and who can blame her?  

“It’s not that you hate (being older), or that you’re upset about it, but it is our reality. We’re changing,” said Vergara in the magazine.

“I see it happening to me. I want to look my age, but I want to look great. I think if you are obsessed with this ‘I want to look younger’ thing, you’re going to go crazy.”

A refreshing take when you consider how many people freak out over the tiniest of skin laxity when they start to age.

In her feature, Vergara talks about her “gigantic boobs,” which she’s had since she was 13.

“My boobs are real, and I had a baby. If I grab them, I can’t even cover the nipple!”

Vergara also talks about a new venture, promoting underwear.

“I love underwear! I won’t sell something I don’t believe in. It has to be good, and it has to be something I really use,” said Vergara.

Vergara draws inspiration from her mother-in-law who at the age of 68 is a workout beast.

“She’s 68 and she’s been working out for a long time. My mom is 68 too and had never worked out. So I made her start Pilates, and now she can get out of a car without, like [makes struggling noises],” said Vergara.
