Diet Tips

A secret to aging well is found in making good choices with your foods.

Choosing foods with anti-aging benefits and avoiding potential age-promoting choices can make a big difference.


Skin Cancer Risk

Eat Antioxidant Foods

Antioxidants play a significant role in anti-aging. These vitamin nutrients from plants help protect the body from the effects of aging and disease. Antioxidants help ‘gobble up’ the free radicals in your body that cause lines, wrinkles, and sun spots. Antioxidant-rich foods are blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, raspberries, cherries, as well as green leafy vegetables.


Avoid Chemicals in Foods

Just like you read the label with your skincare, it is also critical that you read the labels of your food. Many processed foods contain a high level of chemicals. Look for pure foods that are good for the body and the skin and are loaded with nutrients; foods like fruits, whole grain breads and cereals, vegetables and fish. Wash your fruits and vegetables well to remove pesticide residues.


Eat Omega-3 Fatty Acids

These essential fatty acids are ‘good fats’ known for their health benefits such as improving skin health, supporting cardiovascular health, and helping with healthy weight loss. Some Omega-3 rich foods are salmon, sardines, mackerel and herring. Transfats are ‘bad fats’(omega-6 fatty acids) found in all refined vegetable oils and processed foods. Extra virgin olive oil is a great option for cooking and salads.


Avoid Sugar

Known as ‘empty calorie foods’, sugar is inflammatory for the body. Inflammatory foods can promote wrinkles, accelerate aging, and increase risk of disease.


Drink Lots of Water

It's true… drinking 8 glasses a day does make our bodies function optimally. Did you know that oftentimes when you think you are hungry, you are actually thirsty? So… in between meals, grab a glass of water instead of a snack. Keep a bottle at your desk, in your bag or in your car to remind you to drink plenty of water throughout the day. It's great for your skin as well.


Get Plenty of Rest

So you are exhausted? Don't grab a chocolate bar or a coke to perk you up. Most of us are sleep deprived. We pack our calendars filled with things to do each day, and yet we do not get the rest we need to recharge our bodies. Get at least 7-8 hours of sleep a night to feel refreshed and renewed. You deserve it!
