LOVING MY 40’s, LOOKING FORWARD TO 50’s!
by Kristine Seganti
By the time I reached my 40’s, lifestyle choices starting from an early age, along with hormone changes, started showing up from the inside à out!
I used to heal so quickly and be able to get “back” into shape within a 2-week workout period. Now, it’s more like a 6+ month workout journey! Each decade of my life I notice a significant change in how my body reacts to food, drinks, exercise, healing and lifestyle choices in general. My heart, soul and mind are both young and enthusiastic! However, recovery time is a reality. It takes longer now, no doubt about it. Taking risks and going on adventures have whole new meaning. If something happens, what are the repercussions? How long will it take me to heal and who are the people in my life that it will affect? A healthier me is suddenly becoming more and more important.
Now you ask, what does this have to do with skin? Quite simply, what is going on inside, reflects on your outside “skin”, your largest organ! Your Health plays a major role in the health of your skin. Working both internally and topically will drastically reduce the signs of aging, both inside and outside!
Increasing blood flow through exercise gives you energy, vibrancy, and youth! Blood flow increases your circulation, allowing nutrients to flow and feed your skin and increasing oxygen levels to your cells and brain! Oxygen and blood flow give us a natural GLOW that lasts for hours after a workout. Not to mention blood flow carries away waste products and free radicals from the skin and boost fibroblasts to rev up collagen and elastin production.
Did you know that exercising also increases your feel happy endorphins, helping to reduce stress? Reducing stress can help balance hormones that may cause acne and hormonal pigmentation. Added plus of reducing stress is the decrease in cortisol. Too much cortisol increases the breakdown of collagen! Boosting collagen and elastin is a must as we age, due to the lack of production.
