Preparing to look fabulous and beautiful after forty must start way before you hit forty. Prevention is always better than cure! However the truth of the matter is that many people “abuse” their bodies before they hit forty so that once they hit forty, they are not able to look beautiful.
Most forty year-old women have usually stopped giving birth and have a little more time in their hands. If they have been a stay-at-home mum then usually their children are already teenagers. If they have been career women then they are usually finally holding a good job.
If one has “abused” their bodies then at the age of forty, they will probably be having sagging and dry skin. They will also probably be overweight.
To look fabulous and beautiful after forty, we need to have been drinking plenty of water. The body is 70% water and the cells need to be kept alive by drinking enough water. If a person has been drinking eight glasses of water a day, their skin will look fabulous at forty. Water helps get rid of the toxins that have accumulated in our bodies.
When we have too many toxins in our body which mainly come from processed foods then our body ages faster as it works hard to try and get rid of the toxins. The lymphatic system in our bodies was designed by God to get rid of toxins. The lymphatic system is activated through movement. Exercise is the best way to get rid of wastes from our bodies.
Anybody who exercises will look great at forty. It is said that brisk walking is the best exercise for activating the lymphatic system. Exercise also causes us to breathe deeply thus supplying the lowest part of our lungs with much needed oxygen. This is the part of the lungs that absorbs the most oxygen. Doctors tell us that if we give a cell oxygen and remove waste from it, it can live forever. The human body is mainly made of cells. Giving our bodies adequate oxygen will make us look fabulous and beautiful at forty.
It is said that we are what we eat. The body was created to absorb “living” food and not processed food. Fruits and vegetables have “living” water which gives our cells longevity. We are told that 50% of the food that we eat should consist of “living” water. We Will also not be overweight on fruits and vegetables. Many people are addicted to “fast” foods which is characterized by excessive oil.
With beautiful skin and a firm body, clothes will look fantastic on us after forty!
