Grooming Tips From Ageless Men

Some men seem to defy nature and cheat the hands of time. As everyone else goes geriatric with sagging skin and patchy hair, these guys seem to improve with age like a fine wine. 

But they aren’t cyborgs or gatekeepers to a secret fountain of youth. And there is no need for genetic jealousy here. Sure, science plays a role in continuing to look great as the years pass, but fighting Father Time is also an art. These men are worth more than a passing glance because a quick study of their grooming habits may just teach you a thing or two about how to become an ageless man.

Rigorous exercise
Staying in shape is the key to maintaining health over the long term. Regular exercise of 30 minutes three times a week not only keeps weight off, it can also help prevent heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, diabetes, arthritis, and bone loss. But working out isn’t all physical -- it’s psychological, too. 

Exercise relieves stress and promotes mental clarity by releasing increased levels of serotonin to the brain.

Perhaps that’s how Daniel Craig played a James Bond who was both smart and shredded. It may take a little more than a jog on the treadmill to get a buff body like Craig, and at age 41, he could give any 20-something a run for their money.

Let your hair thin in style
About 40 percent of men experience some hair loss by the age of 35. But that doesn’t mean that your looks -- and perceived virility -- are going down the drain with your shedding strands. Contrary to popular belief, longer locks are a shining spotlight on bald spots and make hair appear thinner. And a Trump-esque comb-over is like raising a white flag and throwing in the towel. But in this game, there is no admitting defeat. Splashing on hair-growth serum, popping a pill and cropping your coif into something more flattering are the ways to win.
