TAKE CARE OF YOUR BODY AND BRAIN

Cosmopolitan (South Africa) - - BEAUTY -

Break a Sweat Ex­er­cise can help re­verse early signs of age­ing, thanks to an in­crease in healthy mi­to­chon­dria (struc­tures within our cells that cre­ate en­ergy to keep them func­tion­ing). It also boosts blood ‡low, which, over time, pos­i­tively a’ects the blood ves­sels that sup­port the skin, lead­ing to a health­ier look. Get Your Beauty Sleep With­out at least seven hours, you’ll ex­pe­ri­ence a dis­rup­tion of your body’s nat­u­ral cir­ca­dian rhythm, says Bowe. This will throw your hunger hor­mones (ghre­lin and lep­tin) out of whack, mak­ing you crave the pro­cessed food and re‡ined carbs you’re try­ing to avoid. It can also el­e­vate lev­els of cor­ti­sol, which is linked to col­la­gen break­down and pre­ma­ture age­ing.
