Can You Eat Your Way Out of Skin Aging?

Being busy is not a good enough excuse to neglect your skin care needs. Even if you’re a mom with the unruliest kids in the world or a career woman who’s trying to fastrack her way up the corporate ladder, you still need to take care of yourself.

Okay, okay. I can hear you arguing with me right now about how some stuff are just more important than beauty. But hear me out first. If you can be the best mom or the most successful woman and be beautiful at the same time, wouldn’t you want that? I can see you slowly nodding now. Good. You can have both. You just need to know how.

If time is the major issue, then, today is your lucky day. Did you know that you just need to open your refrigerator to find some of the most effective anti-wrinkle foods around? Yes ladies, not all beauty products are applied. Some are eaten.

You may not have some of the items that’ll be mentioned here but you don’t have to worry. The next time you go to the grocery, just stock up on these items. I don’t want to hear your “I don’t have time” excuse, everyone goes to the grocery!

Argan Oil

One essential product that any woman should have at home is Argan Oil. Why? Because this miracle oil from Morocco is among the few that is not only great for health but also for beauty. You just drizzle it over your food just before serving and you have immediately given your dish a healthier kick! Not to mention it’s good for the skin too. Not only are you serving your family a healthier meal, you’re also making yourself prettier and more younger-looking in the process. Oh! One more thing, this miracle oil also comes as a cosmetic product. The cosmetic type of this oil benefits the skin, hair and nails. The oil is loaded with Vitamin E, essential fatty acids and other antioxidants. How crazy is that?

Other great anti-wrinkle foods that should be included in your shopping list as well are:

  1. Ginger
  2. Soya
  3. Avocado
  4. Brown Rice
  5. Watermelon
  6. Carrots
  7. Cucumber
  8. Nuts
  9. Garlic
  10. Apples
  11. Citrus Fruits, Berries
  12. Cruciferous Vegetables like cabbage, broccoli, radish and cauliflower
  13. Natural oils like grape seed oil and coconut oil

All these are packed with vitamins and antioxidants that are good for both the skin and body. Just keep this list in mind whenever you’re preparing your meal and soon…you’ll be feeling and looking better in no time.

For those who’d feel much better applying a product on their face, don’t fret. There are still a lot of items in your refrigrerator that you can use to make homemade masks. Oranges, papaya, pineapple and grapes are just some of the more effective fruits you can use to fight off those wrinkles! Just use these masks in moderation though. Too much may strip your skin of its natural moisture.
