Maintaining your skin tonified and young is possible
It is essential to take care of your skin on a daily basis, especially in the parts most exposed to atmospheric agents, such as face and hands.
UV rays, cold, wind, environmental pollutants, daily stress and hormonal imbalances negatively affect the state of health of our skin. Loss of elasticity and radiance are among the most significant aspects of skin’s suffering, it appears dull and the first wrinkles appear.
But Nature offers us many remedies and finding solutions is possible, and with considerable success, starting first of all from the choice of foods and dietary criteria. Our body (including the skin) works through a cellular metabolism of oxygen assimilation and the related production of free radicals, cause of aging and disintegration of cells.
The foods that can delay these negative effects are for example wild fruits (Blueberries, Red and Black currants, Raspberries, Elderberry, Pomegranate ..), cruciferous vegetables (Cabbage, Cauliflower, Broccoli, Radishes, Arugula ...), whole grains (Rice, Spelt, Oat, Barley, Millet ..), others such as Tomatoes, Onions, Mushrooms, Citrus Fruits, Garlic, Green Tea, Olive Oil and Dried Fruit.
In addition, also fish such as Cod, Salmon, Mackerel, are a real source of well-being given their richness in fatty acids, mainly Omega 3 and Omega 6, essential for cell regeneration and therefore to keep the skin tonified and healthy.
Of course, in these foods there are also extremely important vitamin complexes, such as B vitamins and vitamin E, which facilitate the use of cell nutrients, contributing to their optimal maintenance. As well as the presence of oligo-elements such as Selenium and Zinc, which have a very effective antioxidant action and which are present in almost all the foods described above.
Tonified skin with the Flexitarian Diet
A varied and balanced diet is the basis of the well-being of our whole organism, for this reason it is inadvisable to follow a too rigid diet. The ideal solution would be to become all “flexitarians”.
The term “flexitarian” comes from the combination of the words flexible (flexible) and vegetarian (vegetarian). According to its author (Dr Dawn Jackson Blatner professor at the University of Oxford), this diet is based on the consumption mainly of vegetables and cereals in seasonal rotation and offers the health advantages of a vegetarian diet, without however having to completely give up fish or meat.
In other words, the Fexitarian diet condemns the abuse of meat, precisely because as an abuse it makes it an ethical issue, but it represents above all a great health result, concluding that meat can be consumed but in reduced quantities and above all of certified origin.
Some vegetables and fruits have also been used directly on the skin of the face for many centuries, such as tomatoes, cucumbers, pineapples, papayas, which contain very powerful enzymes and antioxidants that help us clean the skin from impurities and give it radiance.
Just rub a piece of the chosen fruit or vegetable on the skin, let it dry for a few minutes and rinse your face with water. You will notice the beneficial effects very quickly.
Clearly not all fruits and vegetables are available throughout the year, being constrained by seasonality. To overcome this drawback, Cosmetic Science and Research offer increasingly functional and powerful solutions to keep your skin tonified and young.
Thanks to highly sophisticated extraction systems and thanks to nanoparticles, excellent cosmetics can now be created based on the various active principles of the plant world, such as Aloe, Red Grapes, Algae... but above all with almost all the flowers, each with its distinct properties and the grandiose generating force that has no equal in all nature.
