Radiant and youthful looking skin that defies our age is a common goal for many Australian women and men. And like so many other beauty concerns shared by our clients at Ozmedica Clinic, the appearance of your complexion is strongly related to your overall health, including what you eat and how much you exercise.
It should also be added that smoking and drinking alcohol will contribute to most people’s skin looking older, drier and more wrinkled than it would otherwise appear. Conversely, minimising stress levels and regular exercise will enhance your anti-aging efforts.
Scientific advancements have taught us a considerable amount about which foods are beneficial for our skin tone and texture. Although procedures do exist that can significantly assist your body’s natural efforts to keep your skin looking brilliant, it is evident that your food choices will have a substantial influence throughout your lifetime.
Certain foods will compliment your skin’s efforts in staying hydrated and producing collagen, two wonderful factors in the ongoing fight against wrinkles and inflammation. Youthful looking skin is dependent on a wide variety of factors, however the following foods will certainly help.
Anti aging super foods
For women especially, the best place to start the quest for anti-aging foods is in the ocean. Fish like salmon, sardines and tuna are packed with omega-3 goodness with is fantastic for your skin and excellent for your heart. When it comes to protecting your skin, omega-3 has been found to help resist UV sunlight damage, great for those looking to maintain a youthful looking complexion.
Ellagic acid is a chemical that could naturally help the prevention of wrinkles forming, it combats some types of inflammation caused by UV exposure plus battles skin-firming collagen. And the great news, it occurs abundantly in delicious red fruits like raspberries and pomegranates.
Avocado and kale are two green superfoods that are crammed with zeaxanthin and lutein, two carotenoids that contribute to your skin’s hydration levels, elasticity and the beneficial fat that lies directly under your skin.
Anti aging creams
Anti aging creams make a lot of promises, the most common ones that you would be familiar with include reducing wrinkles, helping with sagging skin, eliminating spots and blemishes, removing fine lines and of cause a youthful and radiant glow.
These skin creams are available across the globe and operate within a highly competitive and lucrative marketplace. The primary ingredients most prevalent in the products include peptides, hydroxy acids, antioxidants and hyaluronic acid. However, by far the most influential component is retinol. Dermatologists agree that retinol is effective in reducing fine lines, spots and blemishes.
Anti aging vitamins and supplements
Despite the marketing claims, skincare supplements are never going to replace a healthy and balanced diet. The vitamins and minerals found in the foods we eat will always have a direct and significant effect on our overall wellbeing, however if something is deemed to be lacking then there is a role to play for taking supplements to assist.
