Walking and keep-fit activities, including cycling and swimming, were also seen as good ways of staying young at heart.
Eight in 10 of the 1,500 over-65s polled said they believed in the saying “you’re only as old as you feel”.
And 78 per cent claimed to feel younger than the number on their last birthday card.
The research, commissioned by Fairy Non-Bio, found the typical respondent felt about nine years younger than their age.
Three-quarters put this down to a positive mental attitude, while half thanked a healthy lifestyle, including getting enough sleep and eating plenty of fruit and vegetables.
When it comes to feeling good on the inside, those quizzed admitted that the outside also matters.
Wearing the clothes you like, treating yourself to nice haircuts and using sun cream also featured in the top 40.
More than half said their style choices have changed with age, and a similar number said their skin had become more sensitive.
Almost a third now favour softer fabrics such as cotton to avoid irritating their skin, and 46 per cent opt for looser fitting clothes.
Fairy Non-Bio’s spokesman said: “Skin sensitivity as we get older shouldn’t mean we have to avoid wearing the clothes we want to, the ones that make us feel our best.”
