When you think of combating wrinkles, you probably think of things that you can apply directly to your face. In fact though, there are multiple ways to combat the visible signs of aging and one of the easiest options is to supplement your diet with the right ingredients. In fact, what you eat can often be even more important than the products you rub on your face, as this way the active ingredients actually get inside your body in order to stimulate your production of important substances like elastin and collagen. Conversely, many of the anti-wrinkle creams simply sit on top of the skin inert (although not all of them… keep reading!).
With that in mind then, let’s take a look at some of the things you can easily add to your diet to improve your skin and stay looking youthful.
Acovado has been one of the most popular anti-wrinkle foods for a while now thanks to its vitamin E content, as well as its high number of essential fatty acids. These combine to help nourish the skin and keep it soft, smooth and full. Avocado is also a great source of vitamin C and protein!
Salmon is an excellent source of omega 3 fatty acid, which is a very important ingredient when it comes to enhancing your skin. Omega 3 can help to create healthy cell walls for your skin, which will improve its suppleness and flexibility, while simultaneously ensuring that other nutrients can enter the cells easily. On top of all that, salmon is also one of the best ways to get astaxanthin in your diet. This is a carotenoid that gives salmon its pinkish hue and that can also protect your skin from free radicals. Wild salmon is best if you can find it.
Red meat used to get flack for being unhealthy but more recent studies show that we were misguided in those accusations. What beef does do though is to provide us with lots of healthy saturated fats, lots of protein and more interestingly, creatine and coenzyme Q10.
Creatine is a substance enjoyed by athletes for its energy-boosting qualities but it has more recently been shown to be effective in combating wrinkles too. Meanwhile, CoQ10 is one of the most powerful antioxidants going and will be highly effective at preventing damage to your cells.
The only substance that can give CoQ10 a run for its money in terms of its antioxidant and cell-health qualities? That would be resveratrol, which is mainly found in red grapes. Both resveratrol and CoQ10 find their way into lots of skin care products but they’re actually better going in your body instead of sitting outside it!
Bone broth is exactly what it sounds like – a broth made from bone! You simply take the bone from your local butcher and then boil it in water to enjoy like a soup. That’s a soup with amazing healthy properties though and the one we’re interested in is the ability to boost collagen.
While these ingredients can all do a great deal of good when it comes to combating wrinkles, that doesn’t mean that you should completely ignore anti-wrinkle creams as actually, these can often be very effective too. The best approach is to combine both in order to battle wrinkles on every front. We recommend starting with Instant Wrinkle Reducer.
