Fat and things put the skin to acid test
Ronita Sharma –
Many of us do not think of the disastrous effects that our body weight and ill-balanced diet has on our skin.
Fat, mucin and water stored beneath our skin ages our flesh fast, leading to poor circulation of blood.
Massaging the skin is important to avoid fat and improve blood circulation.
A qualified and experienced therapist will know the difference between various types of skins and the problems afflicting them before discussing the right type of therapy or treatment.
Contrary to popular belief, such treatment does not cost a lot of money; certainly not as much some products cost in the market. These products are marketed at enormous costs, which are passed on to the customers.
We often rush to buy these creams and lotions without realising that they could cost us the beauty of our skin; sadly, some of us do not know that timely and proper treatment from a specialist would save not only money but also our skin.
Women need hormone support to maintain their weight, especially as they age. Dieting would not help in achieving their objective of remaining fit- certainly not to the extent that healthy food with the vitamins do.
As a mother of two children, I am aware of the challenges and often talk about them.
People often ask, “Why does our appearance change after children arrive? Why do most women lose interest in looking after themselves?”
It is not really rocket science. Getting married and giving birth to children are a part of the natural process – the world must go on – but these need not be at the cost of our health of our body, skin, mind and heart. A few simple methods can help us retain good health.
I have created this special regimen for both women and men on how to look younger and healthier doing a few things different in life.
Many women lead busy lives, working at home or office, running a commercial organisation or helping in community projects. They cook for their spouses, partners and children, keep their homes clean and still find time for themselves.
Like most women, I do not spend large sums of money on self-maintenance. But we do the right things that help our body and skin to remain young and glowing.
We must maintain our hormones in balance.
Some healthy tips.
Take rich antioxidant –Vitamins A & E (Almonds, Butter, Wheat Germ), Pumpkin, Sweet Potatoes, Carrots.
If you are a smoker, give up the habit immediately. Cigarette smoking damages the skin and produces wrinkles at a very young age.
Drink Green Tea first thing every morning.
We take in so much of processed food, put on weight and then worry about losing weight. A brisk walk for 20 minutes every day or at least thrice a week will help us to lose weight.
Hydrating your skin and body with drinking enough water is important.
Drink alcohol in moderation as it slows down your metabolism and increases body weight.
