Healthy Skin

ID-100295011A healthy skin is a reflection of inner health and natural beauty. Skin is the outer covering of the body that protects everything inside the body. It is made up of multiple layers of epithelial tissues and covered with pores, sebaceous glands and sweat glands. Skin regulates the temperature of the body and eliminates toxins from the body through perspiration. It is a vital organ that requires good care.

Right vitamins and minerals are essential for keeping the skin clear and healthy. They act on the surface of the skin, providing a healthy and glowing skin. The major factors for unhealthy skin are faulty diet, prolonged exposure to sun rays, lack of healthy blood and inadequate cleansing.

Vitamins not only enhance the beauty of the skin but also play a major role in maintaining healthy and beautiful hair. The most important vitamins for healthy hair and skin are:

Vitamin C and E: These vitamins are good for acne treatment, sun protection and reduce skin damage.

Vitamin B Complex: Niacin and Biotin are most widely accepted as moisturizers and to some extent treat skin cancer. Biotin is a vital source to prevent graying and hair loss.

Vitamin A: A leading vitamin for acne and skin cancer treatment. It is also a good source to preserve a healthy scalp.

Vitamin K: Perfect vitamin for improving skin tone and reducing appearance of dark circles.

Vitamin E: An antioxidant that have anti-inflammatory effects on the skin and essential for scalp circulation.

There are a host of fruits, vegetables and other eatables that are rich sources of vitamins and minerals. Apples, green tea, cucumber, salmon, citrus fruits, blueberries, green leafy vegetables, carrots and water form the major part of the healthy skin diet. These healthy foods offer healing and preventive measures for many skin troubles. In addition to consuming these rich nutrients one should restrict the intake of excess of sugar, white flour, saturated fats and fried foods to avoid acne and other skin diseases. By having healthy eating habits, acne free skin can be achieved without the high price tag.

5 Simple Fast Weight Loss Exercises For Women Over 50

We are all aware about the negative effects of obesity on our health. The risks of having disorders in our body are greater if we have more than the ideal body weight. Not to mention the adverse effect it may also bring into our confidence and self-esteem.

Unfortunately for women, the possibility of gaining more weight and the risk of becoming obese becomes more pronounced as they age. In fact, the metabolism of a woman’s body decreases by 5% every decade once menopause has begun. This is why it is not surprising when studies showed that women gain an average of 12-15 pounds during (and after) menopause, with most of the additional pounds settling comfortably around the abdomen.

However, this does not imply that women should become resigned to this fact and just accept it as it is. Despite the statistics, there are still some women who have been aging gracefully. All it took for them was to change their lifestyles and incorporated healthier eating habits during this particular period in their lives.

One of the changes that most of these older women did was to shift to a more active lifestyle. They picked themselves up from their seats and went on an exercise plan in order to lose (and keep off) the additional pounds that they gained once they turned 50. Here are 5 simple fast weight loss exercises for women over 50.

  1. Walking

_DSC1268Walking has always been one of the simplest exercise routines. It has been shown to improve cardiovascular health and at the same time, lowers the weight of keeps it under control. Compared to other cardiovascular exercises such as jogging, cycling, and swimming, the risk of injuring one’s self while walking is extremely low, which is why it is a safe exercise routine for older women. Plus, it is extremely useful for you can integrate it while running errands. It’s like hitting two birds with one stone!

  1. (Other) Cardiovascular exercises

ID-100213066Cardiovascular exercises include the treadmill, stationary cycle, the stair machine, or any other exercise that requires the use of the larger muscles for an extended period of time. Other examples are running, dancing, biking, and playing tennis. Doing so will cause one’s heart rate to rise. This type of exercise keeps the heart and body healthy, and the activity will helps one shed off some pounds.

  1. Lifting Weights (Strength Training)

ID-100201755As women age, they slowly lose muscle mass, which is one factor of their steady weight gain. To prevent this, women should incorporate resistance exercises such as weight lifting in order to prevent rapid muscle loss and keep up their strength. It is also a good way for older women to maintain overall fitness and to stop the fat from creeping into their bodies.

  1. Core Exercises

ID-10044414Because one becomes less active with advanced age, core strength diminishes. The result of having poor core strength are the aches and pains that one gets because of poor body mechanics. Core exercises such as stability ball rollouts, pelvic tilts, and yoga will help one to maintain posture and balance, while keeping the midsection tight and toned.

  1. Stretching

ID-10044420Aside from the fact that stretching allows adequate flexibility, a greater range of motion, and relaxed muscles, stretching also corrects imbalances, reduces risk of injury, and improves posture. The activity also helps shed off those excess pounds while allowing one to become more limber.
