Premature Aging & Nutrition
It is quite easy to get carried away with skin care products and skin treatments and forget that sometimes the best way to decrease the signs associated with premature aging can be as simple as making healthy changes to your daily nutrition. Consuming a diet that consists primarily of whole minimally processed foods such as colorful fruits and vegetables that are rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. I am going to talk to you about some age-defying fruits and veggies that you are going to want to add to your grocery list this week.
Fight Wrinkles & Plump Skin
Beta-carotene is a powerful antioxidant that when consumed the body converts to Vitamin A. Getting enough Vitamin A is important if you are looking to decrease the signs and symptoms of aging. It is responsible for stimulating collagen production and decreasing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Some fruits and veggies that contain beta-carotene are Apples, Carrots, and Sweet Potatoes
Defeat Free Radicals
Free radicals are responsible for causing oxidative stress in the body by causing damage to cells, proteins, and DNA. This causes visible signs of aging to become noticeable on the skin. Consuming antioxidant-rich foods prevent oxidation from occurring while removing the agents responsible for the oxidative response from the body. Foods that contain a high amount of antioxidants are garlic, berries, pomegranates and dark chocolate (70% cocoa).
Hydrate & Moisturize
There are foods that are naturally designed to help improve your skin’s ability to remain hydrated and improve moisture retention thanks to vitamins such as pantheonic acid, Vitamin C, and Vitamin E. Eating sweet potatoes, pomegranates and dark chocolate (70% cocoa) can help to moisturize and hydrate your skin from the inside out.
Protect from Sun Damage
While it will always be important to apply sun protection in the form of SPF 30 or higher to protect your skin from the effects of the UV rays. You can also consume foods rich in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties that will help to protect your skin from UV damage naturally. Carrots, sweet potatoes, and dark chocolate (70% cocoa) are just a few of the yummy foods you can add into your diet that can aid in protecting your skin from excessive sun damage.
Discover Healthy Skin from the Inside Out
To truly and adequately conquer the signs of premature aging that are common as you enter into the aging process you must follow a balanced and nutritious diet that contains a healthy balance of colorful fruits and vegetables, following a healthy skin care regimen that includes utilizing high performance skin care products, and practicing daily skin wellness habits consistently.
