As moms of the 21st - century, there is much that’s going on in our lives. Attending to work (be it home or career), taking care of children, keeping up with our aging parents, our personal and social life – it’s a never ending whirlpool of activity and with it comes stress! But see the silver lining: Somewhere in this very busyness of life, lies the beauty of life. As Rosalind Russell, American actress, rightly said, “Taking joy in living is a woman’s best cosmetic”.
While all these facets of life bring us joy and fulfilment, this hurry-flurry often also takes a toll on the physical health. As we grow older there are some physical changes that are bound to happen and though these changes have a negative impact on our body, there are ways to cope with it.
Here’s some good news: With increasing modern day complexities, there are also more solutions at hand. For instance, many expert beauty and wellness clinics seek to be a one-stop solution for all kinds of physical stress and needs – be it ageing, weight loss or beauty services.
As a woman ages, it is natural for some of the body’s functions to start declining. This can present itself in several ways. Here are 5 things that every modern-day woman needs to be aware of and how she can prevent and reduce the impact of stress on herself…
Slower metabolism and weight Gain
As you grow older, your metabolism becomes slower. One of the main reasons that many women tend to gain weight is because they continue to have the appetite of a 25-year-old without the metabolism to burn it. Seek professional help if your own efforts do not bear fruit. Weight management programmes at wellness centres offer balanced advice and facilities to achieve what you may find difficult to at home. You know how it is with fat: Easy to gain but very difficult to lose!
Onset of wrinkles
As you enter thirties, you begin to notice small wrinkles on your forehead, around the mouth and eyes. If you work and live in a stressful environment, these might be more pronounced. Opt for natural beauty remedies or anti-ageing solutions that slow down these visible signs of ageing.
As you grow older, the body breaks down faster than its capacity to repair. Hence, it is important to load up on calcium and other vitamins that will help you sustain your strength and keep up the energy for your daily routine.
As you approach mid-forties, fertility levels begin to drop and you might also experience a case of perimenopause (a period of many hormonal changes) that manifest itself in mood swings, sleep disturbances and/or anxiety. While some of these might be unavoidable, regular exercise, healthy eating and meditation can help reduce stress and anxiety and most importantly, keep you calm through this period of change in body chemistry.
Hair loss often begins during the 30s, for women as well as men. It usually starts with the thinning of hair or a receding hairline. It is always better to seek help when you see the first signs – the sooner you tackle the situation, the better the chances of preventing irreversible loss. Many professional services and products are available in the market that can help you.
Taking care of yourself as a woman is a prerequisite to taking care of your spouse, children, parents and even friends. So prioritise your needs and grab hold of the right products and services that suit your needs. Seek advice, support and services from a brand you can trust to provide you the safest, latest advancements in holistic wellness.

Thank you for the information provided here, but I have a query. I have a tendency to put on weight around my tummy, so how do I control it? I avoid taking carbs post 7 pm in the evening. I start my day with 2 glasses of plain water, then have my morning tea, reach office have a banana and some other seasonal fruit, have another cup of tea at 11 AM, lunch is between 1 - 1:30 pm, then evening tea around 3:30-4pm and then post reaching home a glass of soup and before sleeping a glass full of milk.
