Fabulous At Forty
 
Weight training is shown to help maintain and build up bone mass which is especially important as from your 30s onwards we begin to see a gradual loss of bone mass. Resistance machines found at the gym are highly recommended to contend with this degeneration because they offer support as well as resistance. However, using a basic, straight backed chair and dumbbells is a great alternative at home.

Not only will you improve your respiratory system, enabling you to improve on daily aerobic activity (shopping, playing with the kids / grandkids) but exercises that produce muscle will encourage the flow of essential oxygen and nutrients to the skin. This creates the ideal environment for skin, making sure it has everything it needs to help produce collagen and improve barrier strength - so that it looks and feels its healthy best.
