By simply switching up your diet, it’s possible to erase years from your skin and face. We’re going to get old, and I’ve read up, talked to my mom & friends about their skin becoming sagging and wrinkly. I then decided to changed my lifestyle and cut out pro-aging foods like sugar, grains and started eating a natural, primal diet to slow the ageing process. Studies show that when you focus on eating anti-aging superfoods, you start to reverse the signs of ageing — especially in the facial area.
Research shows and I’ve seen the same transformation over and over again that when we switch to these superfoods diets, we start looking younger almost immediately and over time, it often reverses more than a decade of ageing.
Here are the most powerful wrinkle-fighting foods. I’ve discovered through my clinical and personal experience. If you want soft, young-looking skin, I recommend making them the core of your beauty routine.
1. Bone Broth
When your skin breaks down wrinkles form. To erase these wrinkles, you need to boost your collagen levels not by rubbing on creams, but by mainlining collagen directly to your cells. How? With collagen-rich bone broth. Bone broth is better than wrinkle creams or Botox because it lasts.
2. Foods rich in omega-3s
Imagine ageing skin cells as slightly deflated balls. Omega-3 fatty acids plump up the walls of these cells, making them bouncy again. Take a lot of omega-3s, eat fatty fish and walnuts, or take a high-quality omega-3 supplement.
3. Amino acids
Amino acids are the building blocks of collagen and elastin, which are both vital and very essential for healthy skin. A diet high in essential amino acids (as the body can’t produce on its own) helps keep your skin firm and elastic, while a deficiency makes it dry and thin. Meat and eggs are the best sources for essential amino acids.
4. Potassium-rich foods
Here’s a tip I give to my mom, friends & clients:
Change from regular table salt to sea salt. Why? Regular salt pulls water out of your cells, leaving them flabby and prone to promoting wrinkles whereas sea salt, which is high in potassium, does just the opposite. It pulls water into your cells, making them firm. You can also get skin-hydrating potassium from fruits and veggies, nuts, meat, poultry and fish.
5. Fermented foods
A radiant color translates into the radiant and wrinkle-free skin, while a bad gut is a leading cause of skin ageing. That’s because good gut bacteria help keep your body well supplied with the nutrients your skin thrives on. Bad bacteria, on the other hand, can cause a leaky colon and allow toxins to escape your intestines and create inflammation throughout your body — including your skin. The result? Sick, blotchy, old-looking skin.
To improve your colonic health, eat fermented foods like kimchee and sauerkraut. Make sure you buy refrigerated brands, which contain large amounts of live bacteria.
6. Green and yellow vegetables
Vegetables are loaded with antioxidants, helping prevent oxidative stress (damage to cells caused by free radicals). So it’s not surprising that a study of Japanese women found that a higher intake of green and yellow vegetables (along with a higher intake of healthy fats) reduces wrinkling.
7. Green tea
Like veggies, green tea is loaded with antioxidants. Research shows that it protects your skin against sun damage — the primary cause of wrinkles.
Phytoceramides are a naturally occurring constituent of skin and help to keep it hydrated. Found in beets and spinach, they offer similar benefits. Recently, the FDA approved phytoceramide in nutritional supplement form based on research showing that they can help heal dry, rough, wrinkle-prone skin.
Wrinkle-fighting foods protect your skin in a variety of ways e.g. some them hydrate your skin, build strong cell walls, guard against sun damage, while others protect against free radicals. What’s more, these foods often work together, boosting each other’s power. Combine them, and you’ll get far more wrinkle-fighting power than each one offers on its own.
So if you’re serious about looking younger than you are, add all of these foods to your diet — and eat them daily if you can. My guess is that within days, you’ll start to see a difference and within months, your skin will look so much younger that people may start asking: “wow your skin looks great”, “Did you have a facelift?”
