Ageing is inevitable; while one cannot prevent it from happening, we can definitely slow down its process. What most of us prefer doing is to slather our skins with the latest anti-ageing skin products to reduce signs of ageing like fine lines, wrinkles and spots. What we fail to understand is these commercially bought chemically laden beauty products may come to your rescue in the short run, but may prove to be harmful in the long run. Ageing is more than just skin-related; it can range from inflammation to stress to a diet lacking nutrition, which can affect ageing and in turn, show up on our skin in the form of wrinkles, dryness and sagging skin.
So ditch the beauty products and try including the right kind of foods in your diet that help delay the process of ageing. Not just diet, engaging in exercise and reducing stress are also important factors in slowing down ageing process.
Here are some dietary tips that you should keep in mind in order to slow don ageing.
1. Cut down sugar
We are all aware of the detrimental effects sugar can have on our health by spiking blood sugar levels. In fact, it can also age our skin and steal away out youthfulness significantly. Due to glycation, a process where sugar dehydrates our skin, our skin loses its elasticity and starts to look dull and less vibrant.
