But you try it - you will like the result!
If at the age of 20 a woman can afford not too strictly follow the rules of a healthy lifestyle, then by 40 and older, every "truancy" runs the risk of being marked by a wrinkle or extra pounds. We have collected simple rules that will help you enjoy looking in the mirror at any age.
Eat a balanced diet
Say "Stop!" being overweight, relieving the symptoms of menopause, maintaining the health of the skin, heart and blood vessels, proper nutrition helps:
Include in your diet more foods rich in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids and phytoestrogens - fatty fish and seafood, vegetable oils, carrots, apples, nuts, flax seeds, etc.
Try to avoid crisps, junk food, margarine, and other foods that contain trans fats, as they increase bad cholesterol and your risk of coronary heart disease and type 2 diabetes.
Forget about strict diets. Weight gain with age is the “obesity paradox,” an evolutionary mechanism that protects us from disease. And austerity and rejection of most products in favor of the “elite” is an extra stress for the body.
Follow popular wisdom: try to have a full breakfast, and eat only half of the portion in the evening.
Replenish the lack of nutrients in consultation with your doctor. This can be helped by female vitamins - special complexes that take into account the characteristics of the female body.
Sports and an active lifestyle improve blood circulation, increase metabolic rate, immunity and endurance, strengthen blood vessels and normalize blood pressure, reduce stress and cholesterol levels, help fight obesity - in a word, they give you a lot of advantages over those who like to lie on the couch.
Start with a moderate workout and gradually increase the load. Combine aerobic training (dancing, brisk walking, cycling) with strength training (plank, squat, dumbbell exercises). Take time to stretch and practice breathing.
Self-massage your face
To preserve beauty and youth, it is important to work with the muscles not only of the body, but also of the face. Learn to help your muscles relax - and you will get rid of edema, expression lines, nasolabial folds and creases.
Get tested regularly
Give up the principle "nothing hurts - it means you are healthy." Visit doctors regularly, from therapist to gynecologist and dermatologist, get tested and keep your sugar and "bad" cholesterol levels under control.
Protect your skin from the sun
When exposing your face to the sun's rays, remember that ultraviolet light ages the skin. Apply sunscreen before going outside and stay in the shade during peak hours.
