Dr. Jennifer Pearlman

Women’s Health & Wellness Expert, PearlMD Rejuvenation

It’s a new decade, and it seems everyone is searching for the next best ingredient, product, or procedure that’ll keep us looking forever young. We asked Toronto-based women’s health and wellness expert Dr. Jennifer Pearlman of PearlMD Rejuvenation, a leading clinic for women’s health and wellness, to share her top tips on how to look and feel your best.

Listicle 1

Take some well-deserved you time.

Dr. Pearlman recommends booking a daily check-in with yourself to do something that restores your mind and body, whether that’s a yoga class, a long hike through nature, or quality time spent with friends.

Listicle 2

Fuel your body.

“Be mindful of what, how, and when you eat,” says Dr. Pearlman. “Fasting is a great tool to boost metabolism and activate longevity genes, and diets that mimic fasting — like timed eating or intermittent fasting — are great ways to derive those health benefits in a less extreme way.” She recommends a diet that’s packed with omega 3-rich foods like fish, colourful nutrient-dense vegetables, nuts, seeds, and berries for optimal health and longevity, and consulting with your physician before starting a new dietary plan.

Listicle 3

Add a little boost.

Even those with the best diets can use a little extra help, says Dr. Pearlman. “Beyond a healthful diet, adding beauty-enhancing and health-boosting supplements to your diet is key. Some cornerstone nutrients to consider are vitamin D3, omega 3, antioxidants, activated B complex, and key trace minerals like magnesium, selenium, and zinc.” Of course, consult your physician if you have any questions about adding new supplements to your diet.

Listicle 4

Keep those pearly whites in check.

You may have noticed that your once-sparkling smile has dimmed over the years. This can happen when the yellowing of the dentin inside the tooth shows through the enamel, especially as it thins with age. Keeping your teeth healthy and white can help you look — and feel — younger, and it’s easier than ever with at-home solutions like the new Colgate® Optic White® Renewal toothpaste. Its 3% hydrogen peroxide formula removes 10 years of yellow stains* while being safe for your enamel.

Invest in the skin you’re in.

“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure,” says Dr. Pearlman. “Using sun protection is a must for all ages and skin types, and adding vitamin A to your skincare routine may improve skin’s appearance by reducing pores, breakouts, and fine lines, and increasing collagen.”

*When brushing twice daily for four weeks. Toothpaste also fights cavities.
