As we get older, our hormones get out of balance and we may experience symptoms of menopause. All this combined with every day stress, will affect the entire body including our skin and may lead to skin problems. It will also affect our mood and that’s when a healthy diet becomes very important. Here are some suggestions how to deal with your skin problems and the signs of aging.
Stress and hormones may not be the most popular fodder for dinnertime conversation. But that was the topic of discussion on my first night of our “girls’ getaway” in Jamaica. A group of my friends and I decided to take a five-day vacation to relax and unwind. A few martinis later, everyone was suddenly discussing the different stress factors in their lives and how everything seemed to change past the age of 30. For starters, our tolerance for drinking had definitely gone down! Our skin regimens seemed to have become significantly more complicated. Our attitudes toward exercise had become discouraging to say the least. Until my girlfriends and I got together to talk, I thought I was the only one who felt these frustrations. A friend who was over 50 assured the group that it only gets worse with age. This got me thinking: How can we battle the exhaustion that we feel and still preserve our pretty?
Modifying your skin care routine and your make up is a great way to deal with the changes. Eating a large salad every day and adding a good source of omega 3 fatty acid, will provide nutrients and help alleviate some of the symptoms.
