The best anti-aging foods

Beauty begins with proper nutrition

A beautiful skin can be supported from within. Choosing the “right” food can give your skin a younger and vital appearance. Thus there are some foods that protect the skin against free radicals, which in turn are responsible for the aging process. Other foods supply the skin with fatty acids. They let your complexion shine and appear fresh.

The other way round there are numerous foods which accelerate wrinkling. Industrial sugar is an example for “bad food” – it is better to renounce this one. Surplus sugar molecules connect to collagen fibers. This connection leads to an inelastic skin. White flour products do have the same effect on your skin.

It is important to know that foods are no medications. They do not take effect overnight. Rather a lot of foods do have a preventing and sustainable effect. It is therefore even more important to take care of a healthy nutrition.

Drinking water is good for your skin

An elementary rule is to drink – ideally – 1,5-2l per day. Water sustains the body to eliminate toxins. Moreover it is necessary for several metabolic processes. By drinking water, you support the vitality of your skin. Even ten minutes after drinking, the skin is better supplied with blood and is thereby supplied with higher levels of oxygen. This implies that the skin´s metabolism is stimulated. An increased metabolic activity encourages the protective and immune function of your skin. In the long term, the effect of the inner vitalization shows its impact in a fresher appearance of the skin.
