1. Thickening of the skin
Skin aging is a normal physiological phenomenon. From our birth. The phenomenon of skin aging has always existed. There are many reasons for it, including physiological and external environment and other factors. For a long time, the skin has been the focus of women’s attention, and plumpness, softness and radiance are its appearance characteristics. However, as we age, connective tissue becomes thinner, cells become looser, and metabolism and regeneration become less powerful, all of which can cause skin to lose its plump appearance and dull color. As the stratum corneum becomes thick and fragile, the surface of the skin becomes dry, and fine lines and sagging appear.
Therefore, when you stay up late and work overtime, pay attention to the condition of your skin. If there are spots on the cheeks, it may indicate that your liver function is partially damaged, and it may also indicate many gynecological diseases such as pelvic inflammatory disease, mastitis, breast lobular hyperplasia, and cervicitis.

3. Increased hair loss
When we brush our hair every day, some hair falls out, which is a normal metabolic phenomenon. In early spring and late autumn, due to the secretion of hormones, it is not easy for women to maintain a balance in their physiological conditions, and sometimes it is normal to lose hundreds of hairs a day. But if these are not the case, and the hair loss is far greater than this, it should be taken seriously.
Traditional Chinese medicine believes that when the kidney qi is prosperous, the hair is prosperous. The most prosperous period of the female kidney qi is around the age of 21. After the age of 25, it begins to decline gradually, and the hair is no longer shiny and feels dry and astringent. significantly more than before. Generally speaking, the main reasons for female hair loss are as follows:
1. Since the body secretes a large amount of female hormones during pregnancy, the hair has sufficient growth hormone. After giving birth, due to the sudden decrease in hormone secretion, the hair will naturally fall off in large quantities, but this phenomenon will return to normal in about 6 months postpartum.
2. High fever will damage the hair root tissue and cause a lot of hair loss, especially if the high fever continues, the damage to the hair root is particularly severe. However, such hair loss generally returns to normal after about 6 months.
3. The accelerated pace of life in modern society and the fierce competition make people bear increasingly heavy pressure. Stress is not only closely related to hair loss, but also accelerates aging and increases wrinkles.
4. Blind diet to lose weight will make the hair lack sufficient nutritional supply. If the hair lacks iron intake, it will be dull and dull, and finally lead to a lot of hair loss.
5. Women who take contraceptives for a long time will also experience hair loss, but once they stop taking the pill, the symptoms of hair loss will disappear.
6. Frequent perming and bleaching will cause damage to the hair and even fall off.
7. Hairstyles that are too tight in ponytails, croissants, and twists, as well as tying the hair into tight, curly bands, can damage the roots and cause hair loss.
4.The ligaments are fragile
A ligament is a band of connective tissue. Tough and elastic, it can connect bones together, and can fix the position of certain organs such as liver, spleen, kidney, etc. The function of ligaments is to strengthen the joint, maintain the stability of the joint during movement and limit its movement beyond the physiological range. Injury occurs when a ligament is stretched beyond its tolerance due to violence, resulting in non-physiological activity. Compared with men, because women’s wide hips make the knee and ankle ligaments bear greater force, and women’s ligaments are inherently weaker than men’s, women are more likely to strain the ligaments of knee, ankle and other joints. Once a ligament is pulled, it can take several months to heal.
To prevent ligament damage, you can do some general stretching exercises after getting up every day to moderately move tendons, ligaments and joints. At the same time, because women are less adaptable in high-intensity activities. It is easy to cause muscle strain and ligament strain, so make preparations before exercising, and choose a variety of exercises that focus on leg activities.
