Eat your Way to Healthy: Ageless Skin
5 Tips for Healthy, Glowing Skin from the
1. Nature, Seasons & Food Choices: rather than against nature is the first law of well- being, and your skin is no exception. Winter is the ideal season to provide deep nourishment for the skin, Spring the perfect time to do a detoxification routine, and Summer a time to protect, protect, protect. To support a healthier you synchronize the foods you eat with what is in season locally as these will be fresh and full of great nutrients. Summer is a great time to eat cooling foods such as salads with a variety of leafy green lettuce, baby spinach, fruits such as pears, apples, mangoes, tomato and avocado salsas. Lean fresh meats such as lamb, beef, chicken that you cook.
Care should be taken not to eat too many hot, spicy foods in hot weather, for example, increases the chances of skin breakouts, coupe rose, (broken capillaries), excess perspiration.
2. Change your Attitude toward Food for Healthier Skin: Eating healthy is something that many people unfortunately struggle with. The temptation of fast food such as takeaway, frozen, packaged, baked or canned foods often is chosen either due to ease or belief that it tastes better. Most people know and are aware of the fact, that they should make better choices, but somehow have difficulty in making those choices.
However, making the necessary changes doesn’t have to be hard when you bring your mind to the awareness that these foods are nutrient deficient, high in unhealthy fats, loaded with salt, sugar, artificial chemically derived additives and preservatives. These ingredients will lead major health problems such as obesity, diabetes, heart problems, liver and kidney malfunction.
The first step to moving away from this type of eating is in changing your attitude from being negative, not caring about what happens to you to being positive, bringing focus to wanting to have more energy, vitality, more flexibility, speedier recovery from illness and improve clarity of your mind. Changing your attitude to the foods you eat will make everything easier – walking, working, going on outings, enjoying your friends and you will also sleep better.
3. Becoming Mindful about the foods making different choices that will be vitally important for not just the health of your skin, also for your physical and mental health. In essence for healthy, radiant skin you need fresh, healthy food. Leafy greens, 75% of your diet to be fresh seasonal vegetables and fruit such as apples, watermelon, rockmelon, pears and berries are excellent for great skin.
These foods are rich in natural antioxidants, they help protect the skin being damaged by free radicals. Free radicals are reactive oxygen-based chemicals that have been widely linked to age related disease and debilitation.
Ageing well is very dependent on making healthy eating a way of life, deciding to eat fresh, whole foods every day. There is a great deal mentioned about fat these days, however there is good fat and bad fat it is important to know the difference between good fats and bad fats, because your body needs the good fats. Animal fat, Trans Fats in particular are the fats that cause you harm.
Eliminating processed foods, precooked meals, chips, biscuits, cakes, milk flavoured drinks from your diet this will help in the elimination of unhealthy fats. Healthy fats such as avocados, olive oil, coconut oil and nuts such as almonds, brazil nuts and walnuts will help to keep your skin soft, supple and lustrous.
Protein is a building block that assists with healthy muscle tone, strength and elasticity of your skin. Healthy alternatives or in addition to animal protein, if you are looking to keep this to a minimum are beans, lentils, hard vegetables such as sweet potato, pumpkin and carrot, nuts and seeds are also a healthy choice of protein.
Keep wrinkles at bay and your skin well hydrated by drinking pure filtered water throughout the day. Surround yourself with healthy food choices in your pantry, fridge and freezer this will help prevent you from making unhealthy choices.
4. Foods to Avoid: Processed, Packaged and Fast Foods. As these have limited nutritional substance and are not easily digested or metabolized by your body. Fresh foods with minimal processing are essential for energy, repair and sustenance.
Processed, packaged and fast foods are a major cause to the increasing obesity problem due to the toxic substances that these foods contain, causing a toxic overload, that is leading not only to obesity but to serious health problems. Processed and precooked meats such as ham, bacon, salami, metwurst, hot dogs and so forth are loaded with harmful chemicals, additives and preservatives that research has found to be a major causative factor with cancer.
Healthy snacks include nuts such as almonds, walnuts, Brazil: Beans and lentils make great protein choices if you are vegetarian or looking to cut back on your animal protein. Protein is the building block to assist with muscle tone and strength, therefore assisting to prevent loss of tone of your skin.
5. Stay hydrated:
Hydration is so important for not only for the health of your skin, but it is also essential for proper functioning of your brain, cleansing and distributing necessary minerals throughout your body. An important aspect of hydration is to limit your coffee intake to one to two cups per day and also alcohol. Definitely, don’t go overboard with alcohol, it will rob you of more than just great skin, keep alcohol drinks down to 3 – 4 per week, limiting this to wine or beer. And as for soft drinks completely avoid them if possible. These will all lead to dehydration.
When your skin becomes dehydrated it becomes dry, fine lines appear due to the dehydration, it will lack vibrancy and a healthy glow. Drinking the recommended eight – ten glasses of filtered water a day will keep the cells that formulate your skin hydrated and functioning optimally.
To minimize dehydration, it is important that you eliminate any bad habits such as smoking, excessive drinking of alcohol, soft drink and coffee, taking drugs or unnecessary medications.
In supporting your skin’s hydration, it is important to moisturize your skin twice a day as previously mentioned. It is important to use a moisturizer that is free from harmful chemicals and toxins. Think of water as your skin’s hydration from the inside out.
Top tip – It is best to apply your moisturiser when you skin is slightly damps as this helps to seal in the moisture.
The most important thing to eating healthy is really changing your attitude about healthy foods by understanding the benefits. What you put in your body has a direct effect on your health from the way you feel to the way you think. Skin problems such as rashes, eczema, psoriasis, acne are direct indications that something isn’t functioning quite right in your body.
The most significant benefit to moving away from unhealthy eating to healthy eating is this will also benefit your health by helping to prevent disease. Allowing your body to function more efficiently, so that you can live a happier and healthier life.
An important thing to remember is that Ageless Ageing, isn’t about looking 20 at 60, it’s about not just looking your best, but also feeling your best, no matter what your age.
