Some humans may live longer, while others may live shorter lives. As we humans advance in years, signs of aging start appearing. These signs are normal and include wrinkles, sagging skin and sallow skin, and bags under the eyes. Most men and women are comfortable with these aging signs and tend to ignore them and do not take any anti aging measures. But there are many men and women, especially in the creative fields, like movie stars, TV personalities, politicians, etc, who are very concerned about their looks and take antiaging steps and measures. This does not mean that ordinary men and women, who are not from creative fields do not use any anti aging product or anti aging treatment.
Antiaging methods are used to prevent or slowdown the natural aging process and tries to reverse the effects and signs of aging. A person who looks old may feel old too, but some people refuse to feel old, and are young at heart, even if they are in old age. They refuse to let old age, and the signs of age, slow them down, or make them feel old. These men and women are always on the lookout for anti aging methods and always try out anti aging products to slow down and reverse the aging process. Due to the demand, scientific research too has been continuing in genetic engineering, tissue engineering, and there have been many medical advances to find anti aging treatments and anti aging cures for diseases like Alzheimer’s. Methods also include antiaging psychology, which teaches skills to cope with the stresses of aging, visible signs of aging and changes in the body due to aging.
The search for a perfect Anti aging method or formula has been going on for as long as civilization has been in existence, and references can even be found in Egyptian hieroglyphs and books, and also in many books from the ancient Asian and Grecian cultures. The Egyptians searched for spices and herbs to enhance beauty, prolong life, and reverse the effects of aging. The Greek and Asian civilizations like the Indian, Chinese, and Japanese, used turmeric, milk, honey, and hundreds of herbs and spices to enhance beauty, and have been using many herbs, medicines, and spices, even today, to extend life and slowdown the aging process. Many of these herbs, spices, medicines, are still used as anti aging products, and many edible items like milk, honey, and turmeric, are still used for anti aging treatments.
For many millennia, humans have been searching for, and trying to find the perfect treatment and cure for aging. The search for a perfect treatment and cure led to numerous legends about magical places where people could be youthful forever. Some legends like Ponce de Leon’s search for the ‘Fountain of youth’ is world famous. In the early 1930s, a British writer, James Hilton, immortalized Shangrila in a book. He described a mystical land, the land of Shangrila, as an ageless and magical place, which was located in the Himalayas, near the China – Tibet border. Over the past many millennia, the search for a perfect anti aging Product or Anti aging Treatment has ceaselessly continued, and with the help of modern science, continues at a rapid pace.
