We all know the saying: "you are what you eat." And it's true! As the body's largest organ, your skin and all that lies beneath is dramatically affected by the food choices you make each day. Learn more about how your diet might help you achieve regenerating, anti-aging effects both inside and out.
Within your body, your cells are constantly interacting with other molecules and elements. Free radicals are atoms that have an odd number of electrons. Because electrons like to be part of an even pair, free radicals can interact dangerously with other vital components of the cell, such as the membrane or DNA. If this happens, the cell itself could function improperly or even die. The results of this phenomenon are often ones that we can see on the surface, such as wrinkles and skin dullness. Because foods that are deep fried in fats and oils can actually introduce more free radicals to our bodies, it's important to consume them in moderation. What you eat can have a significant effect on your skin. Prevention in the form of eating well is the best defense for healthy-looking skin.
The best offense is a good defense. Introducing molecules that interact with free radicals safely is a fantastic way to maintain your health, inside and out. The molecules are called antioxidants. Unfortunately, your body isn't able to manufacture antioxidants on its own, so you’ll need to get them through your diet.
Vitamins E and C, as well as vitamin A's precursor, beta-carotene, are good sources of antioxidants. When you think of a skin-healthy diet, keep brightly-colored fruits and vegetables at the top of your shopping list. Below are a few foods that need to be part of your daily diet for optimal skin health:
As a bonus, many of these anti-aging foods are also good sources of fiber! Both soluble and insoluble fiber can help your body stay healthy and vibrant as you age.
