Putting Glycolic peels on your skin is a great way to combat wrinkles, why not work from the inside out by eating the correct foods, for maximum effect?
We are going to discuss how you can erase, or greatly reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles from the inside out!
In other words, Glycolic acid is a great place to start, but you should focus on having a healthy, balanced diet.
Most people think that wrinkles are inevitable part of getting old, this is not necessarily so!
Listen up: One of the major reasons for wrinkles is when low grade cellular inflammation- caused by pollution,
too much sun, poor nutrition and bu products of the body's metabolism triggers the release of activator protein 1
AP-1 and other chemical enzymes that reduce collagen, the connective tissue that makes skin supple and elastic.
Improving your diet can prevent wrinkles and minimize the ones you already have. The key is to avoid inflammatory foods
and to eat foods that block the inflammatory process. Most of these good foods also boost general health, helps prevent cancer, heart disease and other illnesses.
Protein is an essential component of repairing cells, including collagen cells. Without enough protein people quickly lose skin tone.
the optimal amount is 65 g daily for women and 80g for men. Many nutritionists recommend that people have 3 meals and 2 snacks every day...... each of which should include a portion of protein.
Examples; Just 4 ozs chicken breast delivers 31g of protein, half a cup of navy beans has 7g, 4 ozs. of baked Salmon has 22g
Animal protein, from chicken, eggs, pork, lean beef, fish etc provides more amino acids, a component of protein essential for cell repair and is more readily absorbed than plant protein. Vegetarians should supplement their diets with protein powders and soy foods such as tofu, and tempeh.
Salmon: In addition to hight quality protein which aids in skin repair, fish contains essential fatty acids EFA's that block inflammation. Fish also the best dietary source of dimethylaminoethanol a substance also known as DMAE which prevents metabolic by products from damaging skin cells.
Recommended: Eat fish as least 3 times a week. Salmon- either canned or fresh contains the most protective compounds. Eating salmon twice a day t can make you skin look more radiant in 3 days.
If you do not like fish you can take capsules of fish oils or flaxseed oil two or three times a day, or you can have 4 teaspoons of flaxseed oil, per day. Alternatively you can grind up a tablespoon of flax seeds and sprinkle on your food. After fish it is the best dietary sourse of EFA's
Dark green leafy vegetables: The dark leafy greens such as spinach, broccoli, romaine etc contains EFA cartenoids and other antioxidents that block inflamation.
Recommended: Eat green vegetables at least twice a week
Olive Oil: Olive oil is rich in polyphenols, another type of antioxidant that blocks inflammation. It also contains mono unsaturated fat called oleic, which makes it easier for the EFA's in fish and other foods to penetrate cell membranes. You can cook with olive oil or use it in salad dressings.
Recommended: 2 tablespoons of olive oil daily. Spanish olive oil contains the largest amount of skin-protecting ploy phenols. We dont know why spanish oils contain the most, it may have something to do with soil type, or a particular type of olive tree.
Low Glycemic foods An important consideration in a skin-healthy diet is a food's glycemic index GI. The index rates a variety of foods from 1- 100, depending on their effects on the blood glucose levels. Blood sugar control is important as sudden surges trigger an inflamatory response in the skin.
White bread for example has a GI of 95, very high, this means that it is quickly absorbed and floods the bloodstream with glucose, the form of sugar used by cells to produce energy
Other high glycemic foods include white rice, pasta, cake and other types of low- fibre starch
Low Glycemic Choices: Lentils, oatmeal, peanuts, and most fruit and vegetables.
Berries: Fresh or frozen Rasberries, strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries are amongst the best source of anthocyanins, compounds that block enzymes that degrade collagen, as well as other connective tissue.
Reccomended: Eat a quarter cup of berries every day.
Water Lots of water: Water plumps up the skin cells.... reduces concentration of inflamatory chemicals and improves in the body's absorption of vitamins and minerals.
I avoid tap water which is chlorinated and may contain compounds like heavy metals.
Treat yourself to mineral water.
Recommended: Drink at least 8 ozs of water per day!
