For centuries, both men and women have been looking for the Fountain of Youth. So far, to my knowledge, it hasn't bee found. However the good news is that there are things we can do for ourselves that will help us feel and look younger!
You can address most of your common beauty concerns simply by eating the right foods. That's right—eating well not only does wonders for your waistline and bolsters your immune system but can also provide some very real beauty benefits, such as smoothing wrinkles, giving hair a glossy shine and strengthening flimsy nails. Your diet directly affects your day-to-day appearance and plays a significant role in how well you age because nutrients, minerals and fatty acids, as well as antioxidants, protect your body from damaging environmental stresses.
So here are 5 “Fountain of Youth” types of foods you can add to your every day diet for a more youthful appearance:
A cup of joe has bioactive compounds that may help protect your skin from melanoma.
Watermelons and tomatoes contain antioxidant compounds that helps skin stave off UV damage, helping in possibly prevent wrinkles.
The seeds of this wonder fruit are bursting with antioxidants, like vitamin C, that prevent fine lines, wrinkles and dryness by neutralizing the free radicals that weather skin.
Blueberries provide both vitamins C and E that work in tandem to brighten skin, even out tone and fight off free-radical damage.
High in zinc, shellfish has anti-inflammatory properties that can help treat a range of skin annoyances, acne included. Lobster also helps renewal of skin cells.
But as you, my readers, know I always try to bring you the best information and resources because you are the best! So I approached my fellow TV show health experts (Dr. Adonis, Dr. Raul Gonzalez, Dr. Gosha and Dr. Gorin) of the television show, ¡SALUD!, for more health and beauty tips on how one can feel and look younger. This is what some of the ¡SALUD!, doctors has to say.
Dr. Raul Gonzalez (Celebrity Dental expert)- “Whatever you say, say it with a smile”
Dr. Adonis (Revolutionary expert in Anti-Age Management) – “Healthy aging is a choice. Women need to realize that menopause can be enjoyable and good hydration is the great secret.”
