• 5 Allies of Youthful Skin


    Youthful Skin TipsVitamin C – is essential for collagen synthesis. When collagen production decreases with age, you need to support proper regeneration of skin, and collagen is fundamental to the structural network of our skin. The more collagen you create, the younger you look and feel. With sufficient intake of Vitamin C, your skin regenerates faster and fights the free radical damage.

    Tip: although citrus fruits are a great source of vitamin C, many fruits and vegetables are better sources of this vitamin. Half cup of red pepper and one of spring greens can provide more than the daily recommended amount of Vitamin C!

    Glucosamine – sustains the connective tissue and helps in the growth of your skin, bones and muscles. It is in fact the building block for the elements your body uses to make and repair connective tissue as well as the outer skin layer. It is best to get it in supplements as it is not naturally found in foods.

    Lecithin - fights against aging and supports your skin’s health. Lecithin helps the body to create durable cell membranes that are more resistant to damage and have a strong attraction for water. When the upper layer of the skin is well hydrated it has the resilience to provide healthy barrier function. When this layer is poorly hydrated, it becomes vulnerable to environmental damage. Eggs are a significant source of lecithin and with their nutrient content they also help preserve optimum estrogen levels naturally – and estrogen is key to youthful skin!

    Sunscreen – SPF 15 or higher, this is your best bet in your fight with aging signs. It’s like an invisible shield against the most damaging and aging factor: sun light. You still need at least 15 minutes of sun exposure a day for optimal vitamin D levels but do not exceed recommended time!

    Tip: Make sure you protect your skin every day, even on a cloudy day because UV rays can get through layers of clouds. Eat pomegranate to boost the protection power of your sunscreen!

    Essential fatty acids (EFAs) – they maintain optimal hydration at cellular level, according to Dr. Murad; they also help build the cell membranes. Essential fatty acids are the “good fat” that fights inflammation and helps remove the excess “bad” fat from your body. There are two main groups of EFAs: omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids.

    Tip: Walnuts and peanuts are an good source of essential fatty acids! Have them as light snacks instead of chips, toss them in your salads or all over your icecream.
