Here are several of the tips offered by Hausenblas, a healthy aging expert:
Eat Chocolate: A 2006 study published in The Journal of Nutrition concluded women who ate cocoa with high amounts of flavonols were more likely to have hydrated skin.
Combat Aging with Vitamin A: “Consider a wrinkle eraser that includes retinol, a form of vitamin A, to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, fade brown spots and smooth skin tone.”
Sleep Your Way to a Thinner Body: In a 2006 study, it was revealed that women who slept less than seven hours per night are more likely to be obese.
Eat Age-Fighting Foods: “To get that antioxidant boost, eat dark-colored vegetables, like tomatoes, carrots, squash and spinach for carotenoids and blue and purple berries for flavonoids,”
Cleanse Carefully: The key to keeping your face clean and fresh from all the gunk that can crease in fine lines, make skin oily or even cause adult acne is giving yourself sufficient time to thoroughly cleanse.
