As we age, our health needs change, and so do the requirements forkeeping our skin healthy and beautiful. In a recent issue of Parade, the healthand beauty needs of women over the age of 45were explored with actress Andie MacDowell.
Stephanie Stephens, the author of the article, asked MacDowell what anti-aging solutions she usesand what she does to minimize stress in her life.
"I am 100 percent sure that it's what you eat," MacDowell said of how she defies aging. "Just think about what food does inside the body. So much shows up on your face, not just what you eat, but whether you sleep, whether you're worried, or if you don't exercise and sweat. So many people want a shortcut, but you must do some things, even though it's a really simple formula. I want to do it, but I realize some people don't. Oh, and I drink lots of water and it makes an enormous difference."
MacDowell also emphasized exercise, such as yoga and hiking, sleep and spending time in nature as key ways to de-stress. Stress and worrying have been linked directly to hormonal changes and the release of cortisol, which can affect skin healthand vitality.
