Do more exercise
and you can reverse some of the ageing that’s already occurred. People who exercise regularly have visibly younger-looking skin – and it’s never too late to benefit.
Research shows sedentary people aged over 65 see improvements to their skin after three months of exercising. One explanation is that exercise encourages the production of substances that jump-start healthy changes in skin cells.
Make it work by: Getting yourself some friendly competition, to push you further.
Research proves that striving to match or better someone else’s achievements can double the amount of exercise you do. A simple way to tap into your competitive side is to download a free fitness app which lets you compete against your own previous times or other people. Check out Strava (strava.com) or Pact (pactapp.com).
