Why The Secret To Healthier Looking Skin, Hair And Nails Is Two-Fold

By Edwinna Campbell

There are plenty of natural foods that are rich in antioxidants. They can enhance your life in many ways by extending your life and helping you look and feel younger. Antioxidants are an essential ingredient to having more energy, stronger nails, a healthy circulatory system and silky looking hair and skin.

There many causes for aging prematurely. No one wants to look older before their time. The world in which we live and the foods that we eat are big causes for aging prematurely. The air is filled with pollutants and toxins that get into your skin and hair. Food pesticides are often ingested into the body where they can cause harm over time. All of these factors are proven to rob you of an extended youthful life.

One of the best ways to combat the elements of aging is to eat foods that are naturally high in antioxidants. This is the best way to deal with premature wrinkling of the skin, hair and nails. Foods rich in antioxidants should be a part of your daily intake along with well-known supplements that can slow down the aging process. After all, you want to stay younger as long as you can right?

Besides environmental factors such as pollutants and airborne toxins, people these days are dealing with tremendous amounts of stress. These stresses tend to cause sleepless nights and often cause people to turn to drinking too much alcohol and other chemicals that slowly damage and destroy the ability to live a youthful life. It seems to be endless these days, but you can start the process of restoring your youth now.

Every summer and throughout the year millions of people overexpose themselves to tanning on beds and outdoors. You may not realize it but too much tanning will damage the protective layers of your skin and eventually make you look older. I have seen people add 20 or more years of aging due to overexposure to tanning. It does cause your skin to become wrinkly over time.

So what should you do to start reversing the aging process? There are several but my best recommendation is to start using antioxidants to help control wrinkles and other signs of aging. Vitamin C DMEA, Alpha Lipoic Acid and Tocotrienol are just a few antioxidants that are proven to work well.

If you are looking to combat wrinkles, eat foods that contain Zinc and Calcium Magnesium or take a daily supplement to get these two important minerals. If you are unsure, search the internet for studies of these two minerals and you will be convinced. Additionally, you may want to start using a Collagen cream. It helps to protect you skin from damaging pollutants and helps your skin restore its elasticity. You can buy a Collagen rich cream at your local pharmacy or grocery store.

It does not take much to change how fast you are aging. You don't have to be a victim of the environment in which we live. Today, there is plenty of information on the internet that can help you in the fight to live longer and retain your youthful appearance. By changing your diet to eat foods that are high in antioxidants, you can protect the vital layers of your skin and turn the clock back on time.
