What Happens to Your Body After 40 and Why It’s Important to Know About It

The fear of aging is one of the most common fears that people have. Psychologists think that it’s fine if you’re afraid of getting older. But you have to overcome your fear and understand that all ages have their advantages and drawbacks. In this article, we’ll tell you what happens to the body when a person turns 40.

We have decided to consider both the negative and positive aspects of aging. And we feel we have to point out that not all these changes are going to happen to you — it depends on your health and lifestyle.

This problem occurs mostly in men but many people lose their thick hair before they turn 30, and 53% of men go bald after 40. Women also lose hair but slower than men. Yes, it’s unpleasant but there’s also an advantage: your body hair stops growing too.

To prevent rapid hair loss, take care of your hair: cut it from time to time, apply masks, and stop using a hairdryer. Diversify your diet and eat more vitamins. You may also visit a trichologist who can find out the cause of your hair loss and help you to cope with your problem.
