How To Prevent Skin Aging Archives

And is eating anti aging foods all you need to do, or is there more?

Lets have a look today at anti aging foods with a particular slant towards anti aging foods that help preserve the health and good looks of your skin. Because there is no doubt that certain foods, as part of healthy eating & diet and lifestyle strategy, can improve your overall health as well as help keep you looking better. But can you improve your health and skin by eating certain foods?

Because at the end of the day the best anti aging strategy is just to stay as healthy as you can. You cannot prevent ageing, no matter how much you eat particular anti-aging foods, but you can stay healthier, and that is the best way to slow up the ageing process as much as you are able.

Healthy aging is not just about healthy eating and diet. It’s about choosing a lifestyle that in all respects helps protect the body against various health problems such as heart disease, cancer and high blood pressure and much more.

An overall lifestyle that is protective from major health problems includes reducing your intake of saturated fat, avoiding excess alcohol, not smoking and getting plenty of exercise. If you eat a healthy diet and do these things you will most likely age much more gracefully than much of the population, you will stay healthier into old age and you will look better.anti aging foods

Your skin will look better because all of these factors contribute to skin health as well as to overall general health. If you suffer from dry skin,  for example, promoting good skin health will help remedy that.

But there is no doubt that healthy eating and diet play a large part in a healthy lifestyle, and therefore in helping you slow aging, or at least the visible effects of ageing. And anti aging foods play a large part in that.

A general rule that will take you most of the way towards a good anti aging diet is to reduce your intake of saturated fat and increase your intake of fruit and vegetables. Just follow this general principle of healthy eating and you’re well on your way to a good anti aging diet. Fruit and vegetables are high in vitamins and minerals and antioxidants to combat free radicals, all of which contribute to good health and good looking skin.

Equally important is to understand that almost all of us have levels of the essential fatty acids known as Omega 3 fatty acids which are way too low as a result of the trend over the last century to decrease the amount of seafood in our diet.

Taking high quality Omega 3 supplements will not only improve your general health and help protect the body against a wide range of health problems but will have other health benefits, for example by improving your skin.

I’m sure, in reading this article, you were hoping to find a list of foods which, if you ate them all, would slow the ageing process. The reality is that slowing the ageing process is a complete lifestyle decision that involves, for many of us, a re-evaluation of how we eat and how we live our lives generally. Simply eating a few specific foods will do little to slow the ageing process unless you combine this with a total healthy lifestyle.

And for those of us who are concerned in particular with the outward manifestation of ageing, namely our skin, the good news is that there are specific foods which do have properties which help promote the optimum health of our skin.

For example a Japanese seaweed called Phytessence Wakame is particularly good for our skin, and at least one skin care company now incorporates Phytessence Wakame into its excellent range of natural skin care products to bring your skin the benefits of some of the more exotic anti aging foods such as seaweed. Phytessence Wakame helps protect the collagen and elastin in your skin, and both these are essential to good skin health.

They combine the benefits of a wide range of foods such as olive oil, shea butter, macadamia oil, Manuka honey and much more into their products. If you ate all of these foods they would also attract health benefits for your skin, but it’s highly unlikely that you could source and eat all the foods which are combined into these excellent natural anti aging skin products.

So remember, the best anti aging foods really are just plenty of fruit and vegetables, and combine this diet with plenty of exercise, reduce your alcohol intake and don’t smoke and you have the best anti aging formula that will keep you healthy and make your skin look great.

Take daily Omega 3 supplements and use high quality natural skin care products and you will be healthier right into old age and look better than most of us.

There’s plenty of anti aging formulas around. Which works? Adopt a healthy lifestyle.

There are millions of women searching for the best anti aging formula so today we wanted to give you exactly that. The the way to keep aging at bay. It’s really quite straightforward, but it’s not necessarily quite so easy to follow, or at least not without some effort. But follow it and it works. Extremely well.

Firstly let us say this. Most women wanting to slow down the aging process are really focusing on looks. For many women an anti aging routine is all about reducing wrinkles, improving the look of their skin, removing the dark circles under the eyes or fine lines around the eyes, all in an effort to look younger.

And there’s nothing wrong with that, in fact that’s a big part of the formula. But it’s not everything.

In our view this is a little too simplistic. Finding a real anti aging formula that works is as much about improving your overall health as it is about looks. That’s because if you can improve your health then looking better will follow.Anti Aging Formula

Whilst none of us can slow time we can certainly take some significant steps to slowing down the effects of time, and therefore age, on our bodies and on our skin. Slowing down the effects of aging is as much about staying healthy as we age as it is about finding the best wrinkle cream or  human growth hormone that will make us look great but really do nothing for our overall health. Or perhaps even harm it.

Because the health of your skin, and therefore the look of your skin, is a reflection of your overall health. Healthy inside equals looking great outside. Unhealthy inside and you won’t look great outside.

So in short the best anti ageing formula is the one that keeps you as healthy as possible. Here’s our anti aging routine. Follow this, preferably starting today but certainly from as young an age as possible will make you healthier, make you feel great and make your skin glow with health.

1. Eat a healthy diet.

There is no doubt that a healthy diet is a huge part of staying healthy and looking young. You can’t be healthy and look great on a diet of pizza and burgers. The signs of aging on skin will appear much quicker on someone on a poor diet them they will on someone who eats a diet rich in fruit and vegetables instead of pizza and burgers.

2. Don’t smoke.

Smoking is one of the worst things you can do that ever do for your skin. It will speed up the signs of aging dramatically, make you look dreadful as you age and may even kill you. If you smoke now then stop. It’s about the worst thing you can do for your health (and skin) as you age.

3. Exercise regularly.

Regular exercise helps get you fit and does all sorts of good things for your skin, including improving blood circulation which is very important to overall skin health.

4. Don’t get sunburned.

Sunburn is also dreadful for your skin, creating wrinkles and premature other signs of aging.

5. Use high quality natural anti aging products.

There are some outstanding and very high quality natural anti aging products available. They work extremely well and unlike most of the mainstream anti aging skin care products do not contain nasty chemical and petrochemical ingredients that can actually damage your health, (and your skin). This is an important part of keeping your skin looking great.

6. Take high quality EPA/DHA formula fish oil capsules daily.

Sales of Omega 3 fish oil supplements have grown enormously over the last decade as the evidence becomes overwhelming that almost all of us are deficient in essential fatty acids known as Omega 3 fats. Some health professionals suggest that daily supplementation with high quality fish oil capsules can be one of the single most important things that we can ever do to maintain good health.

Not only that but the fatty acids found in fish oil have been clearly demonstrated to be very good at improving skin health as well as maintaining or improving skin moisture levels.

Finding an anti aging formula that will slow down the effects of ageing on our health and on our skin isn’t hard. Doing those simple things recommended by virtually all health professionals, namely eating well, avoiding smoking, exercising regularly and being sensible in the sun will do a power of good for your skin and your looks.

And combine this routine with the worlds highest quality natural anti aging skin care products and you have the perfect anti aging formula. A formula for good health, for wrinkle free skin and for feeling, and looking great as you age.

But you need to keep it up permanently. And that’s not necessarily always easy to do.

Do Hyaluronic Moisturizers work?

Hyaluronic acid moisturizers have become popular over recent years. But do hyaluronic acid acid moisturizers really work, and if not can you get the benefits of hyaluronic acid to your skin some other way?

Hyaluronic acid (which can also be called Hyaluronan or HA) is an important component of your skin, where it acts as a connective tissue, and it is also found to varying degrees in other parts of the body. Along with collagen and elastin it has an important role in maintaining skin health and elasticity.

Hyaluronan helps the skin retain water, being hygroscopic, thereby obviously aiding in maintaining skin hydration. It will absorb around 1000 times it’s own weight in water. This ability to retain moisture also helps keep the collagen and elastin in your skin moist which keeps the skin looking more supple and youthful.

Studies over the last few years have shown that those people who have a naturally higher intake of hyaluronic acid in our diets seem to age, or appear to age slower, and it is theorized that it is the higher levels of hyaluronic acid that are responsible for this. It has a significant role in skin elasticity in tissue repair.

There’s even been a documentary that has called hyaluronic acid be “key to the fountain of youth” for these reasons.

For this reason hyaluronic moisturizers are becoming more popular, on the presumption that if you include hyaluronic acid in a moisturizer you will improve the levels of hyaluronan in the skin merely by applying the moisturizer. This would seem to make sense.hyaluronic acid moisturizer

However the obvious is not necessarily a correct conclusion. For example there are some doubts about whether some forms of hyaluronic acid included in moisturizers will successfully penetrate the skin. HA used in moisturizers generally comes from the eyes of cattle, the combs of cock birds and even from human placentas.

Although it is not entirely clear it would seem that some HA used in moisturizers has a molecule size which is effectively too large to enter the skin, and that for this reason, although increasing the levels of hyaluronic acid in the skin is good for the skin, doing so by means of this form of hyaluronic acid moisturizer is ineffective.

There is an alternative. Rather than attempting to add the stores of HA in the skin it may well be better to prevent destruction of HA in the skin, thereby preserving what is there already.

There is an enzyme in the skin called hyaluronidase. Hyaluronidase breaks down hyaluronic acid in the skin, and so therefore reduces the amount of HA in the skin. So if you’re able to reduce the capacity of hyaluronidase to break down the HA you are effectively increasing your skin’s supplies of HA.

There is a seaweed found around the coast of Japan called Phytessence Wakame. Phytessence Wakame is a large part of the Japanese diet and it is thought that this is one of the major reasons why the Japanese have such wonderful skin right into old age. Research has now shown that Phytessence Wakame helps limit the actions of hyaluronidase, thereby helping your skin maintain its existing stores of hyaluronic acid.

It is now possible to get high quality natural skin care products that contain Phytessence Wakame, and which therefore help the skin retain the skin healing properties of hyaluronic acid.

The company that makes these excellent natural skin care products does not make a hyaluronic acid moisturizer, in fact it does not make any moisturizer at all, because it includes Phytessence Wakame, along with some other excellent natural ingredients, in its entire range of skin care products, thereby eliminating the need for a dedicated moisturizer.

All skin care products from this company moisturize extremely effectively. And they give their customers a money back guarantee. That’s putting your money where your mouth is.

It is entirely possible to buy hyaluronic acid moisturizers. More doubtful is whether or not they are effective at delivering the hyaluronic acid into the dermis of the skin. There is no doubt that increasing the stores of HA in the skin is of great benefit to skin health, but it’s a matter of how to do that.

Using natural skin care products containing Phytessence Wakame eliminates the problem found with a hyaluronidase moisturizer that may fail to deliver the HA into the skin.
