What you are eating can determine what you look and your age. I found that if you apply sunscreen, don’t smoke, and then use lotions, eating the wrong foods can cause your skin to age. Below are rules to achieve a flawless glowing skin naturally.
Choose whole-wheat over refined grains when you have made your decision. Choose whole-grain cereals instead of refined sugar cereals. Try whole-grain pasta instead of those white stuff.
Read the label, and the components should be listed when buying in a store. Popcorn is a snack made from whole grains. Don’t drown it in butter and salt.
When you decide to eat food that contains a high glycemic index, pair it with protein. For example, add a tablespoon of an egg to your waffle, put meat on it, or eat almonds. Proteins provide the building blocks for hydration, and the body also needs them to repair and replace collagen that has been degraded with age or destroyed by free radicals. One study found that women who consumed less protein had more wrinkles than girls.
If you are a coffee drinker, think about postponing a cup of coffee and try a cup of green tea instead. Even if you’re in the caffeine rush, you’ll also get an antioxidant. Yet even if the coffee has antioxidants, green tea also contains different antioxidants that are helpful for the skin.
Everything that comes in a package is suspicious, but baked goods and snacks are the worst – snacks, cookies, donuts, and kid’s cereal are made of flour and lots of sugar, which raises blood sugar levels. Fried foods such as chips and cookies are full of sodium and fat and may contain trans fats.
Low-fat versions often contain an extra portion of sugar (which may be especially true for peanut butter), and even the whole grain snacks may contain too much sugar, salt, and fat.
Water is vital for hydration. Everything in your body will work, and the more you eat, the more hydrated your skin will be.
If you are chronically dehydrated (and many men and women are), drinking eight glasses of water a day can make you look almost immediately younger.
