No one can turn back time, but it is quite possible to slow down its progress and affect our appearance and health.
ADD BERRIES TO YOUR DIET
Free radicals are one of the main enemies of firm skin. The bad news is that almost everything that surrounds us every day contributes to their formation: ultraviolet light, polluted ecology, radiation, smoking, stress provoke the appearance of wrinkles and age spots. The good news is that you can fight all of these with berries, which contain a powerful charge of antioxidants.
TAKE VITAMIN D
You don’t need to get your vitamin D from the sun, just avoid it and remember to apply SPF to your skin 365 days a year. If you live in a northern country and work in an office, you are likely to be deficient in this vitamin. However, before you run to the pharmacy, consult with an endocrinologist: the doctor will prescribe an analysis and the dosage corresponding to the results.
OBSERVE DRINKING REGIME
A useful habit that for many remains a personal challenge. Take it: the body is 50-80% water, and the older we get, the less its percentage – hello, wrinkles.
Stress makes us age faster because the body releases cortisol in this state. In “fight or flight” mode, the arteries narrow and less oxygen is transported through the blood. Free radicals await right there, thriving under stress and making us look older.
The sooner you make sports an integral part of your life, the later you will start to age. Muscles make the skin firm and taut, burn fat and maintain optimal insulin levels.
