Here are some great foods for your anti-aging diet and skin care routine.
Recent discovery made that consuming a small amount of baking soda daily can prevent premature aging.
Baking soda is a versatile ingredient and can be used to make anti-bacterial facial scrubs. It is safe and mildly abrasive making it a good cleanser for all skin types and acne prone skin. Baking soda is also great for your teeth and is found in alot of common toothpastes.
Probably the best foods you can eat are fruits and vegetables. They are loaded with vitamins and minerals and, when eaten raw, have powerful enzymes that actually help your body with the digestion process – leaving more energy for you to use on other things.Fruits and vegetables are also loaded with antioxidants which fight of free radicals. Free radicals actually play a major role in aging and are thought the be major contributors to disease so the more of them you can fight off, the healthier and younger looking you will be!Fruits and vegetables are considered as natures healing foods, as they prevent us from harmful compounds by removing waste and cleanse our body cells.
Fatty acids might not sound like something that are good for you, but they are. The Omega-3 fatty acids in particular are essential for keeping your cell membranes “fluid” which helps with a host of body functions not the least of which is younger looking skin. You can get these essential fatty acids from cold water fish like salmon and tuna, flax seed oil and walnuts.
Fiber is key to keeping your digestive process working and it can also help keep your cholesterol levels in check. While this might not do a lot for your outer appearance, it can do a whole heck of a lot for your insides and this in turn will help keep you vibrant and youthful.It’s especially important to get enough to keep your bowel movements regular, after all, who can look energetic and youthful when they are constipated? Fiber can be found in whole grains, black beans, pears, prunes and apples.When buying whole wheat breads, don’t be fooled by the words “whole wheat” on the label, look at the ingredients and make sure the very first one is whole wheat or whole grains. Otherwise, you are not getting a full whole wheat product.
Finally, the last of the anti aging foods I want to talk about isn’t really a food at all – it’s water. Plain and simple water. You need to drink plenty of it to keep you hydrated. This not only helps with the inner functions of your body but will also help your skin and hair look younger
