Most of us would admit that we are not eating as healthily as we could. But did you know that poor eating habits could be responsible not just for making us put on extra weight, but also for making us look older too.
Good dietary choices feed the body, supplying it with the nutrients it needs to function and renew itself.
The skin is the body’s largest organ, so is logically affected by the food and drink choices that we make.
Although the ageing process is inevitable, it can be slowed, or speeded up by the choices we make on a daily basis.
Nutritionist Amanda Hamilton said in the Daily Mirror that looking younger should start on the inside:
“A good diet is the basis of good skin and slowing ageing.”
“Skin becomes thinner and less elastic as we age but antioxidant rich fruits and vegetables can prevent free radical damage, linked to ageing.”
“A healthy lifestyle is less costly than surgery and it will also boost immunity and protect against disease.”
Amanda’s diet tips:
- Cut out sugar, it interferes with how your body metabolises vitamin C, which is integral in restoring skin structure and the formation of collagen and elastin.
- Cut down on alcohol– it dehydrates your body and overtaxes your liver.
- Make sure you get your quota of essential fatty acids by having two servings of oily fish a week.
- Take a good multivitamin and mineral complex every day.
- Drink plenty of water to flush away toxins.
