Health of the baby boomer generation – Fitness League

England’s Chief Medical Officer has published a report on the health of adults aged 50-70, also known as the ‘baby boomers’. In 2014, 8% of the total population in England were aged 75 and over, this number is expected to rise to 13.1% by 2039.

While this generation benefits from advances made in life expectancy and mortality reduction, there are several opportunities for health improvement. Lifestyle factors such as physical activity and tobacco consumption, modifiable risk factors such as obesity and overweight are all relevant considerations.

Data on the lifestyles of this generation are presented in the report revealing that physical activity levels were low in this generation, and they are less active than those of the same age ten years ago.

The Importance of Skin Fitness

If like me you overindulged at Christmas, too much chocolate, cake and prosecco, then it will start affecting your skin fitness. Blemishes, dull complexion becomes evident, coupled with the cold drying winter weather, it’s time to take action.

This can often mean doing the thing you most want to avoid – exercising. I have written many times about the benefits of keeping fit, particularly as we get older and it is essential in restoring skin to its healthy glow.

Here is what we recommend at Omorovicza:

Skin fitness is essential to achieve healthy, glowing skin. But did you know that physical exercise can improve your complexion, and is one of the best remedy for wrinkles, dull skin, acne and dry skin…? We reveal why in the next post in our Skin Fitness series.

Regular exercise boosts your blood circulation and improves the oxygenation of skin. Enhanced blood flow helps the skin to regenerate and toxins are efficiently removed from the body. Think of it as cleansing from the inside.

Taking exercise can help improve the texture and elasticity of your skin. It boosts the production of collagen, which helps your skin repair itself subsequently delaying the process of ageing and subsequent dreaded wrinkles.

It has been proven that exercise can help reduce the stress hormone cortisol. This hormone can exacerbate skin conditions such as eczema and acne.

When you work out, your skin receives a dose of oxygenated blood which gives you an instant glow as your skin is hydrated and can “breathe” properly. You feel more relaxed when working out, so your complexion instantly appears less tense. When do you start your skin fitness regime?   Photo credit: Rina Kanehara © Laurent Liotardo / Post-production Nik Pate

How to Look Younger at 60 | LIVESTRONG.COM

Having just turned 60 myself, I often find myself thinking about my health and wellbeing, as I want to ensure I am fit and healthy into my 70s and beyond.

I work in the Beauty Industry so always wonder if I am still looking as smart as my younger colleagues or am looking a little long in the tooth.

I found these tips helpful, particularly as I see many 60 year olds trying to hide away – behind baggy clothes, behind heavy make-up or just staying more at home because they don’t feel confident enough to go out.

These tips are really quite handy and I know I shall be checking a few of them off my list this week, starting with healthy diet and exercise. A walking weekend it is in the clean fresh air of Richmond Park.

In addition to eating well, I also recommend regular outdoor exercise, walking is just the ticket. Even in the wind and rain, wrap up well and off you go, along the river bank, in the local park or along a coastal path. Fill your lungs with fresh air and help oxygenate every cell in your body.

Women Fashion Power – Design Museum – London

On The New

Onthenew Women Fashion Power Design Museum 3You may not be surprised to hear that this exhibition was shown at the Design Museum. Note the words ‘WOMEN’, ‘FASHION’ and ‘POWER’ on the moving clock hands.

Given that this exhibition was about women and power, I’m not sure if I should include the bit from the card that explains that she was the ‘wife of Emperor Franz Joseph I of Austria’. I’d leave it out on principle, but perhaps marriage to an emperor was a key defining point in her identity.
