Many people think wrinkles and fine lines are both things we can't combat without undergoing surgery or spending a fortune on supplements and treatments.
If you’re one of those people – think again! There are plenty of things you can do to look and feel younger from the inside out, all in the comfort of your home (and without paying a lot of money to do it!).
What do you think is the most important thing you can do in order to slow down the aging process?
Can you guess?
If you said "change your diet", you've got it!
Your diet is the most important part of slowing down the aging process and helping you feel and look years younger.
In other words, proper nutrition that includes powerful minerals, vitamins and nutrients that fine-tune your system, while providing your skin with everything it needs to thrive, is the ultimate way to reverse the signs of aging without surgery.
It's true; when it comes to looking younger, there is nothing as effective and long-term than when you incorporate powerful anti-aging foods, supplements and nutrients into your diet.
Foods that are high in antioxidants are the most important of them all.
Fueling your system with a hearty and consistent supply of antioxidants will help protect the cells from oxidation, which can lead to tissue degeneration that has been proven to speed up the aging process.
Here are a few foods that are high in antioxidants that you'll want to start incorporating into your daily diet:
- Berries like blueberries, raspberries, strawberries
- Green tea
- Dark Chocolate
- Goji Berries
- Tomatoes (especially cooked tomatoes)
- Sweet potatoes
You'll also want to pay attention to essential fatty acids, making sure you are getting enough in your daily diet.
Omega-3 fatty acids play an important role in helping you look and feel younger and thankfully, they are found in most of the foods we eat including:
- Salmon & Tuna
- Walnuts, Almonds, Pecans
- Flax Seeds & Fish Oil
Omega fatty acids are truly remarkable ingredients for improving your skin. They serve as the foundation to smoothing the skin's surface layers, which in turn, leaves you looking years younger.
It will feel as though you've found the fountain of youth! 😉
And if you really want to get the most out of omega fatty acids, consider purchasing a fish oil supplement.
As we age, our skin cells become thinner. In turn, this thinning causes dryness which makes our skin look older.
By taking fish oil supplements, you can bolster the skin cell membrane, releasing moisture which will lead to softer, more supple skin.
