As you grow older your body produces less of the essential hormones that keep your body firm and toned. Muscle mass becomes much harder to achieve and metabolism begins to slow, causing weight gain many times, to people who have never had a problem with it before. The good news is that while you can’t prevent the natural aging process from occurring, you can slow down the physical and mental results.
“You can slow down the visible signs
through various non-invasive treatments,
exercising 2 to 3 times a week and
eating a healthy diet.”
Using moisturizers and serums to reduce the appearance of wrinkles
As young as in your 20s, is the time when you should begin a regular routine that includes hydrating cleansers, serums and deep conditioning moisturizers. Of course, as you head into your 40s and 50s you’ll need to work harder to retain these results. At this point in their lives, many older people opt for surgery or injections to provide them with a youthful look. There are other ways for those who want to avoid going under the knife or painful treatments.
Research shows that products containing active ingredients such as peptides and botanicals can actually improve the skin’s overall appearance. Dermaclara takes it even one step further with the introduction of Silicone Fusion Technology. The company uses a flexible and breathable medical grade silicone that you apply to various parts of the body to help reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, scars and stretch marks.
Engaging in some form of physical activity is important whether you are in your 20s, 30s, 40, 50s or even 60s. The only difference is that if you haven’t exercised in years and you’re over the age of 40 you should consult with your doctor and take it slow in the beginning, working towards 90 minutes of strength training 2 to 3 times per week. In your youth, you can get away with doing almost any type of physical activity to stay fit.
When you grow older muscle mass begins to diminish and in order to improve it, you have to work harder and use resistance exercises like pull ups and wall presses. You can join a gym and work with an on-staff personal trainer that can help you to select the right exercises and show you the right way of performing them so you maximize the results. Physical activity also helps to burn calories and improve your skin’s condition by toning and removing toxins from the body.
Eating the right foods
If you have poor eating habits it can affect your weight, your level of energy and your mood. Nothing has changed since you were younger. The same foods your parents served for breakfast, lunch and dinner are still the one’s that offer lasting benefits, more important now as you grow older. Whole grains, fresh fruits, and vegetables, yogurt, granola, lean meats, fish and nuts all give your body the nutrition it needs to promote good health.
Also replacing saturated fats with olive oil can prevent clogged arteries and keep your heart healthy. Eating a well-balanced diet can help you maintain a steady weight, retain a healthy glow and keep your mind sharp longer. There are many delicious, healthy recipes that can keep your table foods from getting boring.
Benefits of sleep
Many people have trouble falling asleep at night and this can cause you to lose focus, feel tired throughout the day and have dull or puffy-looking skin. When you fall into a deep sleep your body begins to repair itself by replacing older cells with new ones. When you don’t get 7 to 9 hours of sleep each night the process ends up incomplete and thus you lose the radiant healthy skin glow. There are ways to enjoy a good night’s sleep. Try to avoid caffeine after 7 or 8 at night, reduce your intake of alcohol, quit smoking and turn off the television. When you get the proper amount of sleep you feel good and it shows.
