Knight passed away at the age of 82, but his unending faith and unwavering determination still serves as an inspiration for the numerous volunteers who dedicate their free time to help in the maintenance of this mighty art installation.

We might not have been able to uncover the legendary Fountain of Youth, but mankind has certainly managed to discover the secrets to younger and beautiful looking skin. Ponce de Leon searched high and low for this fabled wonder, but it turns out that the secrets to anti-aging lay within him all along.

Repeat the entire motion 10 – 15 times to complete 1 set and perform 3 such sets, up to 3 times a week.

Dumbbell shoulder presses – for healthy shoulders

Lie on the back with the knees bent and the feet flat. Lift both feet off the ground until your hips and thighs create a 90 degree angle and the knees are bent at 90 degrees. Contract the abs in order to curl the shoulders and the head off the mat while you simultaneously bring the right knee towards the right armpit and straighten out the left knee. Rotate the torso in a slow motion to bring the left elbow close to the right knee and continue with the motion until the elbow touches the opposite knee. Return to original position and repeat for the other side. Perform 10 – 15 such motions to complete a single set and add 3 sets to your routine, up to 3 times a week.

Leg drops – for a healthy lower belly

OROGOLD’s Tips to Stay Forever Young – ORO GOLD Reviews

Forever young women jumpingAt one point or another, you have thought wistfully about the skin, hair or body you had when you were young. Aging is an inevitable experience of life, but there are ways to age gracefully. While there is no proverbial fountain of youth, there are changes you can make to your daily routine that help you look and feel younger. Below, learn the top 5 tips and tricks that will help you stay forever young.

Refine Your Diet

The people of Okinawa, Japan live the longest out of all citizens on Earth. Experts have long studied the diets and lifestyles these individuals lead to discover their secrets of seemingly eternal youth. To fight age, you need to do so from the inside out. Changing the types, and amounts, of food that you consume can help you feel more youthful. Always eat at least the daily recommended fruits and vegetables and add good fats, such as those from nuts, into your diet as well.

Drink More Water

Any expert on health and beauty will tell you to follow this guideline. Your body is composed of anywhere from 55% to 75% water, other individual parts are made of more water, so it makes sense that to function at an optimal level you need to consume water. Often, the face is one of the first areas to show age with the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. When you drink an appropriate amount of water, your skin appears youthful, glowing and plump, which naturally softens the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Beyond improving your appearance, water helps to keep you energized, lubricates bones and joints and improves your brain function.

Practice Proper Skin Care

Maintaining a good skin care regimen is an excellent way to help your body feel as soft and look as glowing as it did when you were young. Exfoliate skin two to three times a week to remove any dead skin cells from the surface and to stimulate circulation. Wear moisturizer and use body lotion regularly. Keeping your skin from drying out significantly helps you to look younger. Finally, apply sunscreen before you go outside, every single time you go outside. It may seem excessive, especially in the dark winter months, but the damage done by the sun’s UV rays occur no matter what the season is. Combat the harmful rays by wearing a sunscreen or finding a moisturizer with a good level of SPF in it.

Get Your Beauty Sleep

You have a busy life and it seems you can never find enough hours in the day to accomplish everything, let alone sleep an appropriate amount. However, it is important to get quality sleep each night. A good night’s sleep does more than energize you for your day ahead, it also aids weight loss and helps to keep your stress levels down. Experts recommend avoiding your technological devices, such as tablets, phones, computers and televisions for 20 minutes prior to your bedtime. A general guideline is to aim for six to eight hours of sleep each night.

Start Moving

Regular exercise in a recommendation for all people, not just those wanting to lose weight or look younger. Exercise helps to maintain muscle tone, reduce stress, shed pounds, build strong and healthy bones and increase brain power. In fact, it is thought that the simple act of walking for ten minutes a day can lessen your chance of developing Alzheimer’s.

You can’t stop the aging process, but you can practice healthy habits that keep you looking and feeling young, longer. Remember, though your skin may not be as tight as it once was, your hair doesn’t look as shiny or you suddenly aren’t as flexible, aging does have its advantages. Embrace the aging process and enjoy seeing the world from a healthy new perspective.

Get outside

Getting outside in the sunshine and fresh air will help you to feel refreshed. Walking is also great exercise as it helps to boost energy levels. If it’s a nice day, why not try walking or even cycling to work instead of using public transport.

Sleep

Getting at least 8 hours of sleep will help you to feel fresh and alert.

Understanding your own personality can work wonders in choosing a scent that really works for you. You have all sorts of scents to choose from – things like woody scents, fresh scents, spicy oriental scents and floral scents can work wonders for you. You can also visit popular perfume stores and take whiffs of different scents which fall under different categories to find one that suits you the best.

Understand your notes

Any signature fragrance should have three notes – a top, a base and the middle. The top note is the first impression that you want to leave. It should be invigorating and refreshing. It should be something that really makes your day when you wake up and invigorates you for the journey ahead. The base is the longest lasting part of your fragrance. It is what you’re finally left with after the top and middle notes evaporate. You could look at soothing smells like creamy vanilla or choose sensual smells like earthy, green or musk. The middle note is what you’re left with about 30 minutes after applying the fragrance. The middle note should always be a scent that helps you to settle into the day. Things like spice and soft florals are perfect ideas for the middle note. Once you evaluate the various notes and shortlist your favored smells, it’s time to experiment with different smells to create your signature fragrance.

Start experimenting  

Experimenting with your signature fragrance can be a lot of fun. You need to blend various essential oils and try to determine which smells blend well with each other. You can find these oils in any specialty perfume store. A number of online sites also offer different quality oils so you can pick and choose things that are perfect for your own needs. Essential oils are made using natural ingredients like herbs, fruits and flowers and they tend to be more expensive than those fragrance oils. Essential oils don’t contain any synthetic materials that can damage your skin either. If you have sensitive skin, you should always look at adding a few drops of almond oil or baby oil in your blends.

Add alcohol into your blend  

Once you combine the right essential oils, you need to add pharmaceutical-grade alcohol into your blend before you can bottle it for spritzing. The more alcohol you add into the blend, the more the fragrance dilutes. Make sure that you never use rubbing alcohol. With a little bit of research, you can actually find the right alcohol at a place near you. It is always advisable to use a dropper while adding alcohol because it becomes easier to mix the right quantities and things are less messy as well.

Wear the scent correctly

Most people end up going wrong when it comes to wearing the scent. For maximum effect, you need to wear the scent on your pressure points. This means that you need to apply it on the nape of your neck, your cleavage, the insides of your thighs, behind the knees and on your ankles. As the pulse points start warming up, the fragrance rises. The secret to making your fragrance last throughout the day is to apply it on the right places. Never spritz the fragrance in the air and walk through the perfume cloud because this really doesn’t work and it also leads to a lot of wastage.
