3 Age-Defying Habits of Super-Agers You Need to Know Now



We all know someone like this. Think back to your last class reunion. There you are mingling happily amongst forty-something-year olds, contented to languish in the midst of the flabby, the (more than a little) overweight, the no-longer-nubile and the unfirm world of the middle-aged woman. Then there standing in this unholy mix, you see someone resembling a figment of your past, but looking unbelievably like she hasn’t aged a day past 30. What unholy sorcery is this, you ask yourself?

The truth is that there is a new species of ‘super-agers’ emerging from our midst. They are eclipsing the supermodels and the young starlets. In fact, they have carved out a whole new category of awesomeness for themselves. These middle aged (and beyond) individuals have defied all expectations and re-written societal’s rules about what it means to be a 40 or 50 year old. Who says a 45 year old can’t strut in a bikini and own it? Who says a 50 year-old can’t have the pectorals that make teenage males drool?


Lest we attribute it to the luck of the draw, research has come up with interesting findings that genetic predispositions can only account for so much. In fact, up until you are 20, you probably rely more on your genes than anything else for your good looks (or lack thereof). Eat and never get fat? Well, your genes can only protect you so far. From your twenties onwards, your beauty destiny lies in your own hands. That’s good news for those of us who have high discipline, but bad news for those who are prone to skipping our monthly facials or falling asleep with our makeup on.


To prove our theory, we speak to 3 ‘super-agers’, voted in by our readers, to get a lowdown on what in their minds are the 3 most important habits they adopted to get to where they are today.

The ‘Junior’ Senior Exec


Lift and tighten your skin early!

Stella’s advice: “Gone are the days when one would wait till one’s face sagged till the chest before going for plastic surgery. These days, smaller, non-invasive tweaks are the way to go, I feel. When done early enough, they can help ward off the premature effects of age and help you sail into your 30s, 40s and 50s in style. I underwent my first Thermage before my wedding when I was 30. I had a face thread lift done 5 years later when I was 35.”

The ‘Student’ Teacher


Antioxidants are the key

Cindi’s advice:“Great skin requires good nutrition. I start my mornings with a tall glass of vegetable juice, and go for detox cleanses every 6 months. On top of that, I use topical vitamins B and C on my skin as they are great for rejuvenation and anti-wrinkle effects. I use vitamin A eye cream around my eyes as they give me the best anti-aging and skin firming results.”
