Look Younger at Any Age - Age Defying Skin Care

Are you overwhelmed by the vast amount of anti-aging products out there?

Everywhere you look, you see advertisements for age-defying products that promise to erase the signs of time and make you look younger. Chances are good that you’ve probably tried at least one just to realize that you wasted your money.

One problem with the vast majority of anti-aging products is that, even though they have all the “right” ingredients in them, those ingredients are suspended in substances such as glycerin that is made of molecules too large to penetrate the skin. Also, they’re often full of chemicals such as alcohol that can do more harm than good. Why not consider a more natural approach to anti-aging?

You’ve probably heard the expression, “You are what you eat” and it’s true. The battle against aging may best be fought from the inside out, using foods that work to keep your body healthy and young.

One of the largest contributors to wrinkles and old-looking skin is free radicals. You've surely heard of these but in order to understand what they are, we're going to have to step back to high school chemistry for a minute.

Free radicals are atoms that have lost an electron and are thus unstable. In order to become stable again, they try to bond with other atoms and damage them in the process. It's a wicked chain that leads to many different physical difficulties, including wrinkles and dull skin. The only truly effective way to battle free radicals is to eat foods that have antioxidants. These nutrients bond with free radicals and escort them safely out of your body before they can wreak havoc.

There are a few particularly excellent foods that are great for working against free radicals. Vitamins A, C, and E are particularly good to focus on.

Here are a few nutrition tips to help you find the best anti-aging ingredients or foods:

Papayas have a variety of nutrients. These nutrients help restore collagen, get rid of free radicals that may cause wrinkles and ashy skin, and keep your hair shiny. Papaya also has papain, a digestive enzyme that helps with healing and aids digestion.

Acai berries have more antioxidants than other measured fruit or vegetable and are becoming hugely popular in the anti-aging world.

Pomegranates are another superfood that has carotenoids and other antioxidants.

Mangos have carotenoids and all three antioxidant vitamins A, C, and E.

Beets are good for everything from keeping you looking young to help keep your body strong. 

Other healthy fruits that have nutrients include noni fruit, bilberries, lycil wolfberry fruit, and nopal cactus. If you’re trying to maintain youthful looks and maintain your energy and health, eating a healthy diet is the way to go.
