Although the first signs of ageing that we see are fine lines, wrinkles and discolouration, we can also notice that the face starts to lose its curves and bulges as in cheek bones flattening and once tight jaw lines drooping and sagging through loss of muscle tone and subcutaneous fat. So other than going under the knife to tighten that jaw and fill in a flat looking face with cheek and jaw implants, what can we do if anything? Well of course there are numerous cosmetic injections such as Restylane, Juvaderm and Botox to fill and tighten various areas of the face. There are amazing collagen renewal therapies such as HIFU - High Intensed Frequency Ultrasound, Radio Frequency Skin Tightening, Microneedling and Electrical Manual Stimulation, all of which are fantastic and with many celebrities shouting about them are increasing in popularity. But there is also the business of what you eat. Eating the right foods such as adopting a high protein, good fat, green leafy veg, and low sugar and starch diet, taking the right supplements not forgetting super topical serums and oils which are applied directly to the skin and used within food preparation will dramatically increase muscle tone and subcutaneous fat, all lead to the coveted cellular renewal.
Foods that are high in sugar or saturated fats can cause inflammation in the body which in turn will accelerate the aging process. When your looking at a way to slow the ageing process, foods that you should try to avoid include, sugar, fast food, processed foods, certain cereals, white bread, bacon,syrups, fructose and margarine to name but a few. Replace these food types with foods such as Avacados, Coconut, Dark Chocolate, Blueberries, Cantaloupe, Olives, Certain Nuts, Wild Salmon and using oils such as coconut and olive oils. I will share the benefit of these food stuffs at a later date. But if you want to start and reduce wrinkles and inflammation within the body, eating a diet rich in anti oxidants is a great place to start.
Sunscreen - Why your face should never be without it.
When it comes to your daily skin routine, sunscreen is something that is greatly overlooked. I recently read a post by a skin expert, he said 'there is no reason why your skin should not be line free when you are 80 years of age, as long as protect your skin from the sun each day'. So guys and gals, do your face a favour and invest in a decent sunscreen.
