Can people change their lives when they are 50?

Women over 50: These things change in the body from this age

Getting older is the way things go and cannot be changed. This is usually noticeable in our own body. Sure, you're only as old as you feel. However, some changes cannot be hidden and make us aware that we are no longer in our 20s, 30s or even 40s, but are among the women of 50 and over and one or the other year of life makes itself felt. It's not just about a few wrinkles on the face or unsightly dents on the legs and bottom. We got used to them a long time ago. Even women over 30 may notice one or the other furrow around the eye area and struggle with cellulite. Ladies in their 50s, however, notice completely different changes in their bodies. Unlike wrinkles or orange peel, these cannot really be combated with creams or beauty treatments. Rather, it helps to slow them down with a healthy lifestyle. The good news: the changes we are talking about can sooner or later affect every woman and suffering shared is, as is well known, half suffering. 😉

News about ladies over 50 that you shouldn't miss:

1. The weight increases

With age, ladies in their 50s find that losing weight is not as easy as it was a few years ago. The pounds on the hips, stomach and buttocks just don't want to tumble and instead are steadily increasing. The reason for this is the change in metabolism. Over the years, the body changes the setpoint for the body fat percentage, which leads to women over 50 gaining weight, although they do not eat more than before. This can only be counteracted through a healthy diet and regular exercise. 🏃🏽‍♀️

2. The condition is decreasing

Women over 50 also often find that they run out of breath faster with their daily workout routine. This is because the stamina, the ability to react and the speed decrease with age. However, this should not be an obstacle to regular sports units, because worse than slowing down when doing sports is definitely not doing any sports at all. Ladies in their 50s in particular should have a gym routine, go running regularly or find a hobby with a lot of exercise in order to maintain their weight and above all to stay fit. 💪🏼

3. The hair strength decreases

Over the years, we have also noticed increasing changes in our mane. Where there was still full, strong hair in their youth, ladies often lose their hair density in the 50s. In addition, of course, there are the first gray strands that are tried to hide with a little color. A gray mane is no shame and looks great on most women in their 50s. It looks different with the density of hair. For many ladies over 50 it is a real annoyance when the main hair in particular begins to become finer and thinner over the years. The reason for this are changes in the hormone and nutrient balance. It is just a good thing that we cannot suffer from hereditary hair loss like men do. 🙌🏼

4. The bones become more fragile

It is not without reason that it is said that people become frail with age. Bone density has already reached its best value at around 30 years of age. From then on the bones start to break down. Ladies over 50 should therefore be careful with their bones and not go all out, especially during action-packed activities. Of course, that doesn't mean that we should limit ourselves. Bone breakdown is a completely natural process that everyone goes through. Especially ladies in their 50s who have both feet firmly on the ground and are proud of what they have achieved so far should be able to enjoy their time to the fullest. 😍

5. The eyesight is impaired

As we get older, we can also notice changes in our eyesight. Ladies over 50 therefore often have to struggle with deteriorating eyesight. This is because from around the age of 40 the pupils begin to constrict and become cloudy. In addition, the flexibility of the lens decreases significantly and our eyes find it more difficult to focus on close targets. The loss of eyesight, however, is a fact that we can live with. After all, there are plenty of stylish glasses that perfectly complement the look of ladies aged 50 and over. ✨
