With stars like Debra Messing and Halle Berry looking decades younger than their actual age, 40 is definitely the new 30!  Woman are no longer dreading reaching middle age and are feeling healthier than ever, thanks to the latest fitness and wellness trends. But ageing comes with a lot of changes, too.

It's usually around 40 when some women start to form deeper fine lines and wrinkles. The big 4-0 also signals the importance of doing health screenings regularly. For example, at age 40, women should have their first mammogram.   “Women must always remain proactive about their health at every age,” says women’s health expert Dr Taz Bhatia. The good news is there are ways to anticipate where your health is headed as you age through preventative screenings and an active lifestyle. Remember, age is just a number so keep it that way!
