" People who have moderate and deep wrinkles on their forehead are 10 times more likely to die from heart disease."
Cardiovascular diseases are the number one cause of death globally. About 18 million people die from heart disease every year. A heart attack can cause a sudden death even among young people.
A 20-year study in France involving 3,200 healthy participants age 32 to 62 showed there is a link between wrinkles and heart disease. Wrinkles on the forehead signal a higher risk of heart disease, stroke and heart attack. People who have moderate and deep wrinkles on their forehead are 10 times more likely to die from heart disease than people who have little or no wrinkle. The deeper the wrinkles, the higher the risk of dying from heart disease. Wrinkles on the forehead can be a sign of atherosclerosis, a condition in which plaque builds up inside the blood vessels. Over time the plague hardens and narrows the blood vessels, increasing the risk of fatal heart attack or stroke.

How to Reduce The Risk for Heart Disease
Apart from genetic conditions, heart disease is often caused by unhealthy lifestyle, stress and diet. While we can't change our genetic predisposition, there are few things that we can do to reduce the risk of getting heart disease, stroke and fatal heart attack:
1. Eat healthy
Fruits and vegetables contain antioxidants, vitamins and other phytochemicals with anti-inflammatory properties. Eating more fresh fruits and vegetables every day helps prevent oxidative stress and damage in our body. Antioxidants neutralise free radicals and prevent inflammation. Chronic inflammation has been associated with many diseases including heart disease, diabetes, cancer and premature ageing.
To prevent and reduce inflammation in your body, cut down the consumption of unhealthy foods below:
- Sugary foods and foods that are rich in refined carbohydrates
- Fried and barbecued foods
- Processed foods
- Salty foods
- Foods that are high in saturated fats
2. Protect your body from pollution
Inhaling polluted air triggers the influx of free radicals in our body. Free radicals can cause serious damage to various body cells and increase the risk of getting heart disease and cancer. Studies showed that pollution accelerates ageing process and causes a premature death. Just like with breathing in air pollutants, smoking cigarettes increases the risk for heart disease, stroke, fatal heart attack and cancer. According to NHS UK, more than 70% of lung cancer cases are caused by smoking.
Pollution and smoking cigarettes are very bad for our skin too. To protect your skin from free radicals and pollutants, apply Antioxidant Youthful Essence on freshly cleansed face and neck every morning and evening. Formulated with three antioxidants, this multi-award-winning vitamin C serum reduces the appearance of wrinkles, lines and dark pigmentation spots.

3. Stay active
Being physically active helps us maintain a healthy weight. People who have excess fat around the belly are more likely to get heart disease. Women should aim for a 0.8 waist-to-hip ratio while men should aim for a 0.9 waist-to-hip ratio.
Moderate exercise three to four times a week helps reduce stress level. Stress can cause high blood pressure, one of the major factors in heart disease, stroke and heart attack. If you hardly exercise, you need to start slowly. Go for a 30 minute walk every day to relax your body and mind. At all times, avoid injuring your body. Ask for help from a personal trainer if you are not sure how to start exercising. Unless you are an athlete, don't push yourself over the limit. Over exercising can be as bad as not doing it at all.
To help prevent aching muscles and joints from exercise, massage Anti-Cellulite Muscle Ease Slimming Oil all over the body after bath or shower every day. This highly stimulating body oil reduces the appearance of cellulite and fat all over the body particularly around the belly and on the upper arms, thighs and buttocks.
Being physically active helps you sleep better. Sleep deprivation is very bad for your health. People who don't get enough sleep are more likely to suffer from high blood pressure and heart disease. Adults needs 7 to 8 hour sleep a day. If you find it difficult to fall a sleep at night, try to relax at least one hour before going to bed. Reduce the time you spend on your mobile and computer at night. Don't eat heavy meals close to your bed time. Try to finish your dinner at least 3 hours before going to bed.
