Anti-aging treatments can help reduce insecurities in adults
December 3, 2010
While many people may think that self confidence is an issue that goes away once adolescence is over, the truth is that many baby boomers feel insecure about their appearance. In fact, a recent survey indicates that more than half of those over 40 do not think that they feel as old as they look, the Toronto Sun reports.
There are a number of steps that boomers can take toward improving their self confidence, and some of the simplest steps can also be the most effective. For example, experts say that practicing a healthy lifestyle and having a positive attitude typically improves one's appearance and self-esteem.
Along with diet and exercise, there are a number of popular cosmetic procedures that go further and can help stave off the appearance of wrinkles and aging. Procedures like Botox, fillers and skin treatments have become as routine as other personal improvements, such as a dental cleaning, a haircut or buying new clothes. These trends will likely continue to grow as the boomer generation gets older.
