Anti-wrinkle cream, Botox, lunch-break mini-facelifts – you don’t need them! Here, instead, and for a fraction of the price, is Naturally Good Food’s 10-point guide to maintaining a youthful appearance. We’ve got food rich in vitamin A, for healthy skin, eyes and hair. We’ve got food stuffed with vitamin E, for glowing skin and swishable locks. We’ve got food packed with antioxidants, fighting the effects of free radicals on your skin. And much more….
True beauty – and true health – starts from within. What you put inside shows up on the outside. Follow our guide below and you’ll be glowing inside and out!
First of all, eat apricots: we sell beautifully juicy, dried and ready-to-eat apricots, in a variety of sizes. We’ve got small packs for those still blessed with youthful looks, and bulk bags for those with many decades to shed (or a lot of baking to do!). Apricots are packed with vitamin A, which is essential for healthy skin, eyes and hair.
Focus on antioxidants
Antioxidants combat the effects of free radicals in our bodies. These unstable oxygen compounds seek other atoms or molecules with which to bond, beginning a process called ‘oxidative stress’ (or ‘oxidation’). Over time, they break down our cells, leading to accelerated aging and a whole host of nasty conditions. By eating a diet rich in antioxidants, researchers argue, we can limit the production of free radicals and lessen their effects. We’ll ‘age’ more slowly, both internally (our joints and organs will benefit) and externally, giving us more youthful skin.
Naturally Good Food sells a number of products that are especially rich in antioxidants. They’re all well worth eating! Check these out, in particular:
- Kidney beans
- Dark chocolate
- Goji berries
- Sesame seeds
- Pumpkin seeds
- Green tea
- Dried herbs and spices (especially turmeric)
- Wild Alaskan Salmon.
Use extra-virgin olive oil
The omega-3 fatty acids found in olive oil promote blood circulation to the skin and create healthy cell membranes, giving us softer, moister and more supple skin. Make sure you choose extra-virgin olive oil for the greatest concentration of nutrients.
Eat dark chocolate
Apparently – and who are we to disagree – eating dark chocolate maintains skin collagen, thus protecting against wrinkles. The combination of vitamins and minerals found in dark chocolate also nourish the skin, keeping it moist and, thanks to flavonoids, protecting us from sun damage. (Also, eating dark chocolate makes you smile more!)
Drink lots of water
A free tip that really works! Drink plenty of water every day to flush away waste and prevent your skin sagging.
Get lots of sleep
One of the best, and completely free, ways of making you look younger is to get enough sleep each night. Worried about creases on your face from the pillow? Read on….
