However, what if I told you at Gucciardo Specific Chiropractic and Natural Health Center we could help rescue your skin through the use of proper Nutrition without the use of drugs, skin products, or surgery?
Nutrition and Aging
As we get older our nutritional needs start to change. A few things that can accelerate aging is stress, lack of vitamins and minerals, processed foods and refined sugars, and toxin build up in the body from the food we eat and the environment. When excess toxins build up in the body it gets stored in your skin. So what's a good way to help get rid of toxins in the body? Detoxing is the best thing you can do for your skin health along with eating nutritious foods. Healthy eating habits can help prevent aging and may even restore some fountain of youth back. Isn't that fantastic? Your body needs to get back the right nutrients such as vitamins A, B, C, D, E, and K to have healthy looking skin. When you put nutritious food into the body you will have more energy, your body works more efficiently which in turn can be reflected in your skin. Eating organic foods can help reduce aging because they contain fewer toxins. Fats, proteins and carbohydrates are all essential to help support your body's skin. But. Most importantly drinking water is key. Did you know even with a small amount of water in your body it can function less optimally? This can lead to your skin becoming dehydrated and it may look dull, flakey, dry, or saggy. In addition, incorporating antioxidants to your diet is another great way to keep your skin looking healthy and can even give you some years back. Getting the right nutrients into the body from the foods we eat can help cells replicate allowing the skin skin to look vibrant and healthy. Some of the best antioxidants include:Green teaBlueberriesAvocadosPomegranateAcai berriesGoji berriesTomatoesSpinachSalmonRaspberriesWalnutsSunflower seedsLastly, reducing inflammation in the body can help skin looking healthy. Inflammation is the body's reaction to damage or invasion of anything the body interprets as foreign. This could be from some cosmetics or the foods we eat which can increase wrinkle formation. It' important to have a variety of antioxidants with additional whole food supplements if needed for the body to function optimally and maintain a healthy glow. Reducing inflammation can lead to less puffy skin, smoother, less redness, and wrinkles.
