No doubt, you’re aware that you’re not going to live forever. And while that realization isn’t exactly fun, the next-best solution is to live as long and healthy a life as humanly possible. With more stories of super-centenarians, i.e. people who live to or past their 110th birthday, in the news, it seems like your odds of living a long time are pretty decent.
A photo of a 63-year-old grandmother is going viral for her youthful appearance. On Sunday, a man named Chavo Lotti tweeted a photo of the woman, writing, “My grandma turned 63 yesterday,” and the Internet went nuts over the woman’s wrinkle-free visage and dewy glow, not to mention her oversized topknot and colorful overalls.
The study uses new ways of measuring aging, combined with projections from the U.N., and predicts that population aging (when the median age rises in a country because of increasing life expectancy and lower fertility rates) will end in the U.S. before the end of the century. Population aging is often concerning for countries because it leads to fewer people in the workforce as well as increased burdens on society. Researchers predict that population aging will peak in Germany by 2040 and by 2070 in China, while the U.S. will have very little population aging in the future.
Research conducted at the University of Michigan found that smiling, regardless of your actual emotional state, can make you feel happier, one of the many aspects of achieving that joyful, youthful feeling. Research published in Preventive Medicine reveals that adults who exercised regularly actually had younger cells than those who were sedentary. Not only is getting some fresh air a great way to get energized, research published in Psychological Science reveals that city-dwellers who had easy access to outdoor green spaces had higher rates of well-being than those who saw just the concrete jungle day in and day out.
Britton says she's a proponent of exploring what it means to age gracefully, as opposed to embracing scalpels and fillers to halt the onset of laugh lines.
People tend to think about the eyes first when it comes to your physical appearance revealing your age. While it’s true that this is one of the most recognized areas of the face to show the signs of aging (we’re talking to you, crow’s feet), your lips could be giving your age away. As funny as that seems, there is now actually a lip age calculator that virtually detects how old your lips appear.

Jenna Bush Hager said that her grandmother, former first lady Barbara Bush, has only four toes on each foot. How? Apparently just through the natural process of getting older.
Contrary to popular belief, older adults need more — not less — slumber, according to an April 2017 study published in the journal Neuron. In fact, lack of quality shut-eye among senior citizens can raise their risk of memory loss and suffering wide range of mental and physical disorders, such as Alzheimer’s disease, heart disease, obesity, diabetes, and stroke. “Nearly every disease killing us in later life has a causal link to lack of sleep,” Matthew Walker, senior author of the study and professor of psychology and neuroscience at the University of California, Berkeley, stated in a press release.
As Models.com releases a shocking survey detailing the mistreatment of young models, it’s refreshing to see that not all agencies are focused on teenage looks as the ideal.
Scientists affiliated with Harvard Medical School have made a breakthrough that could potentially reverse the signs of aging. Human trials are set to begin in six months. After just one week of treatment, the cells from older mice were identical to those of younger mice.
