How to Look Younger
Do you try endless face creams, hair products, and concealer to achieve healthy skin and hair? Turns out, it's not only what you put outside of your body that can make a difference. Dr. Timothy Brantley, author of The Cure: Heal Your Body, Save Your Life, says that "feeding the body feeds the skin," and he's sharing his picks for foods that will help keep you looking young and feeling fabulous.
"What you need to know first is which foods to stay away from. Refined sugars break down collagen. We need collagen to keep skin firm and wrinkle-free," Dr. Brantley explains. "You can support collagen production with foods that are rich in vitamin C, antioxidants, omegas and good fats like saturated and polyunsaturated fats." These wrinkle-fighting foods include:
Strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, avacados, olives, and oils such as: hemp seed, sesame, coconut and olive.
Relieving Puffy Eyes and Dark Circles
When it comes to puffy eyes and dark circles, Dr. Brantley advises staying away from foods like refined salt and over-cooked or processed meat. "These contain a lot of acids, which hurt your kidneys by taking water away from them." What should you look for? Try foods and natural juices that support your kidneys and have a high water content like:
Bananas, cucumbers, celery, asparagus, and citrus fruits.
Slowing Hair Loss
According to Dr. Brantley, if you have thinning hair, your body maybe missing certain nutrients like biotin, calcium, iron and silica. So what can you do? Eat foods that contain vitamin B, protein and zinc like:
Almonds, spinach, kale, organic meats and eggs.
