Hippocrates in 400 BC said that exercise is man’s best medicine.
There are many things we, as humans, need to do in order to stay looking and feeling healthy, and thus able to lead vibrant and bright lives. Some of these things include: exercise, nutrition, mental well-being, spiritual well being, adequate sleep, and skin care. Other external factors we can try to control include exposure to the sun and environmental toxins such as pollution.
MDPen, a leader in providing microneedling practitioner support, wants you to look your best every day. We propound microneedling through microneedling devices as one tool in your tool box to combat the signs of aging.

HOW EXERCISE AFFECTS AGING
Natural aging takes its toll on the body. As your body ages, you lose muscle mass, strength, agility, balance, endurance, and bone density. Exercise has the opposite effect on the body. Through exercise, you increase muscle mass, strength, agility, balance, endurance, and bone density. You increase flexibility, mobility, and have a lower blood pressure. With regular exercise, you are less likely to be obese and develop diseases and disabilities.
Hence, exercise reduces the signs of aging. It is also a natural antidepressant and mood elevator, important for mental health. Exercise keeps our organs healthy from our heart to our lungs. Furthermore, an organ called the thymus, which makes immune cells called T cells, starts to shrink from the age of 20 and makes less T cells. T cells are famous for fighting cancer as well as fighting bacteria and viruses in the body. A study undertaken by researchers at the University of Birmingham and King’s College London have found that those who exercised regularly their entire lives had thymuses that were making as many T cells as those of a young person.
Another study showed that regular exercisers had lower levels of inflammation, a cause of aging within the body. Inflammation is the process where our body is fighting an infection or other foreign antibody in the system. We see this in action when you get a mosquito bite and your skin swells–that’s protection in action. However, sometimes our body inflames when there’s nothing to fight off. If this happens, chronic conditions can occur like arthritis, fibromyalgia, and lower back and neck pain. Autoimmune diseases are caused in part by inflammation.
MICRONEEDLING AND EXERCISE
Turning back the hands of time is something most of us would like to do—at least in terms of aging. Caring for the whole body systematically and wholistically is our best bet for looking our best and feeling our best. And if we’re honest with ourselves, how we feel shapes our entire day, week, month, and year. It shapes our attitudes, our interactions with others, and what type of person we are. Frown lines are caused in part by, well, frowning. We frown when we don’t realize it because we’re not in a happy place.
So much of aging is interrelated. It’s a puzzle with pieces that are constantly moving we all need to figure out, which often takes a lifetime of learning. microneedling is one piece of the puzzle that will help you turn back the clock. Exercising regularly is another.
MDPen divines to help you with one piece of the puzzle: microneedling. Simple skin care to implement, microneedling will help you look younger as your skin renews from the inside out. Using our proprietary serums coupled with our microneedling devices will enhance the effects of your microneedling procedure. And if you exercise regularly, your skin will glow from the effects!
