Ten tips to younger looking skin!

After staring at faces of octogenarians, nonagenarians, and loads of septuagenarians,  these past two decades, I think I see the secret to lovely aging!

The most attractive 70-,80-, and 90-year-olds are the ones who:

  1. smile as soon as they meet you
  2. lean forward to listen to what you have to say (yeah – some is to back up the hearing with lip reading, but it’s mostly out of interest)
  3. are immediately adn enthusiastically engaged in whatever the conversation is about
  4.  ask questions…(and not just “whadja say?”…but really, about what you just said.
  5.  are current with the news
  6.  have opinions, and passion, but frowns are fleeting
  7.  love their food, notice the sky, comment on what’s in front of their eyes
  8. touch and don’t mind being touched (or hugged)
  9. shun “organ recitals” (of what’s aching)
  10. look at others and the sites around them instead of the mirror. Let’s face it – you can’t see the wrinkles on yourself if you’re looking at someone else.

For love and admiration of our oldest generations, I stepped away from corporate life in 1999 to do something about the looming digital divide. today, having helped more than 100,000 elders to the Internet and email, that divide has only deepened and darkened as society goes paperless. Today, it is a true liability to be unconnected. today, we are hoping to help another 100,000 senior to digital inclusion.
