As we age, one of the major changes that occur is the dysregulation of our immune response – which simply means our body is in a chronic state of unresolved inflammation. This impacts everything from our joints and internal organs (hello, bloating) to our skin and even our brains.
So how do we combat it?
With an anti-inflammatory diet, consistent exercise, and topical application of S²RM – all over!
In addition to the topical application of S²RM which reduces superficial inflammation, start by reducing the amount of inflammation your body has to fight in the first place by incorporating foods that fight for you: green, leafy veggies (spinach, kale, collards), nuts (almonds + walnuts especially), sustainably caught fish (wild caught salmon, mackerel, tuna), fruits (berries provide extra antioxidants, bananas for fiber + potassium, and citrus packed for vitamin C, which helps your body make collagen!), and try adding more herbs to your meals (turmeric is a superstar at inhibiting COX-2, an enzyme that is responsible for sparking your body’s inflammatory response).
When it comes to exercise, a little goes a long way. Start small, but be consistent. Try low-impact exercises like swimming, yoga, walking and cycling. Increased blood and oxygen flow to the cells flushes out free radicals that contribute to the signs of aging, not to mention these types of exercises are easier on inflamed joints.
The topical application of S²RM is just as important on your body as it is on your face. Don’t skip your décolletage. Your neck and chest most likely see as much sun as your beautiful face does, so make sure to protect and take care of it. South of the décolletage, try NeoGenesis Body Cream – a luxurious, anti-aging cream for all-over deep hydration that uses S²RM® technology to repair and restore the deeper layers of the skin.
