Fruit for anti-aging
Although improving your diet wont erase wrinkles from the outside, it will help protect your skin from the inside. The health of your whole body has a definitive affect on the health of your skin. The skin is, after all, the largest organ in the body.
Free radicals are toxic by-products of energy production. They are chemicals with an unpaired electron absorbed into the body. Once there, they react with any structure in a cell, causing damage in the form of mutations leading to gene malfunction. These malfunctions can lead to vital functions being altered.
The cell membrane is vulnerable to free radicals and the damage results in rigid, fragile and leaky cells.
Antioxidants protect the cells from free radicals. A diet rich in antioxidants is great protection from the damage done by these free radicals. Lycopene, found in red fruits and vegetables is a powerful antioxidant, as are flavonoids and carotenoids. These can be found in fruits and vegetables and herbs such as spinach, asparagus, basil, lima beans, garlic, dill, onion, cabbage, apricots, peaches and plenty of others. And dont forget the tea. Fresh, raw or just lightly cooked is the best way to get the full benefit of the antioxidants.
There are foods associated with keeping smoother skin that has less wrinkles. Eating these foods doesnt guarantee wrinkles will disappear or never appear, but there is a correlation between eating them and having fewer wrinkles. Mono-unsaturated fat, olives and olive oil, fatty fish like sardines and salmon, reduced fat milk, eggs, nuts & legumes, and the previously mentioned foods high in flavonoids and carotenoids all result in healthier skin. As would be expected, saturated fats, sodas, sweets, butter, margarine, meat and potatoes are their counterparts that result in wrinkles.
Drinking plenty of fluids, especially water, is another way to keep youthful skin. Although staying hydrated is good for the skin it does not necessarily help with wrinkling as wrinkles occur in the dermis as the result of the sebaceous glands producing too little sebum, the skin becomes dry and more apt to wrinkle. What drinking water does is keep the blood circulating well and cleans the pores by allowing sweat to flow freely. Water also helps with metabolism.
As for hydrating the skin from the outside there are excellent creams and lotions available. One of them, LifeCell, penetrates into the dermal layer to help stimulate the natural production of collagen.
A balanced diet, good nutrition and science based skincare creams are important in having younger looking skin and are vital to the anti-aging process. Antioxidants fight off free radicals and micronutrients act as sponges to soak up destructive ultraviolet rays, all working together to prevent wrinkling and spotting.
