Top 5 Superfoods To Turn Back The Clock
Unless you know the secret of Peter Pan or Dorian Grey, aging is inevitable. With aging, wrinkles and fine lines begin to be more prominent, dark spots start to appear and hair becomes thinner and turns grey. Everyone ages at different paces. This is mainly due to our genetics and lifestyle choices.
We are so used to seeing age-defying celebrities including the likes of Jennifer Aniston, Gwyneth Paltrow and Naomi Campbell who look fantastic for their age. One thing all these celebrities have in common to slow down the ageing process is incorporating superfoods into their diet.
Below are our top five superfoods that you should include in your diet to ward off the wrinkles a little longer!
Blueberries contains high levels of anti-oxidants and vitamins which means that they’re a winner when fighting against wrinkles. Its anti-ageing properties include anthocyanins which enhances the collagen in the skin and breaks down any free radicals attacking the skin.
Olive Oil is made from healthy mono-saturated fats. Regular consumption reduces your chances of heart disease, high blood pressure and cancer. This is also a fantastic superfood to strengthen hair follicles and make your skin glow. Research suggests its anti-oxidant properties, including polyphenols, fight against premature ageing.
Drinking Green Tea on a daily basis is shown to effectively prevent the formation of wrinkles. This is because Green Tea has high levels of powerful anti-oxidants which are proven to protect the skin against free radicals that damages the skin’s collagen.
Dark Chocolate has a higher percentage of Cocoa than milk chocolate. Cocoa is rich in potent anti-oxidants called flavanols which are well-known to reverse the effects of ageing. These flavanols help keep blood vessels functioning normally, which has also been linked to lowering the risk of dementia. Dark Chocolate is also packed with tons of minerals including potassium, copper, magnesium and iron which are key to supporting our immune system and stabilising blood pressure.
Another superfood high in healthy mono-saturated fat is Avocado. The fantastic fatty acids and Vitamins E, C and B contribute to nourish the skin’s texture and maintain its moisture for beautiful healthy skin. Vitamin E is rich in anti-ageing properties and is widely known as the ‘Youth Vitamin’.
All these superfoods perfectly complement our anti-ageing treatments, including the Korean Crystal Facial and Hydro Deep Skin Booster, and prolong your youthful appearance.
