Tips For Natural Skin Care
Dr. Nicholas V. Perricone, a Clinical Professor of Medicine at Michigan State University, is the author of a book called “The Perricone Prescription for the Wrinkle Cure; Unlock the Power of Cosmeceuticals for Supple, Youthful Skin”.
Perricone’s research indicates that a diet rich in blueberry extract actually reverses short-term memory loss and improves coordination and balance. The Tufts University has done research validating Dr. Perricone’s work. Studies indicate that blueberries have the highest amount of oxidation of all fruits and vegetables, which are thought to prevent cancer, other diseases, and provide anti-aging benefits. Dr. Carolyn Dean, M.D., author of “The Miracle of Magnesium” goes on to state that magnesium should be an integral part of a health and longevity program. Magnesium rich foods include brown rice, wheat germ, wheat bran, almonds, and peanuts. Your skin is the most noticeable physical part of a person. In living a healthy active lifestyle and working to reduce the effects of aging, our skin and, thus, general physical appearance naturally look better. Youthful skin needs to be nourished and cared for.
Dr. Perricone has a natural recipe for a nutritional facelift. It stems from his research that certain ways of eating cause a sub-clinical inflammation that leads to many types of problems from accelerated aging, to heart disease and certain cancers. In an article submitted to Web MD, he theorizes fruits, vegetables, and quantities of cold water fish like Salmon actually reduce the inflammation on a cellular level. His recommendation for a nutritional, safe diet are as follows: for lunch and dinner add green salad (dressing is olive oil and lemon juice), 3 ounces of broiled salmon, tuna, or mackerel, and strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries for dessert.
Cold water fish is rich is Omega 3 fatty acids, which are well documented as anti-aging agents but they specifically fight premature effects of aging of the skin. Using all-natural, premium skin care products are significantly complimentary to an overall plan to improve your skin’s tone, clarity, and beauty.
The final key to looking younger, reversing aging, and promoting youthful skin is water. Water has an affect on how your body operates on a molecular level and how the molecular structures within the body relate to each other. Interestingly, a human being can live with no food for up to two months, however, without water, death would occur in days. Water aids significantly in digestion and metabolism, it maintains the body’s temperature, and keeps the joints well lubricated. Primarily, it washes out toxins and impurities and is the key factor in how the liver filters waste from the blood. Blood is actually 50% water. An alarming trend is 75% of Americans are severely dehydrated and even mild dehydration slows the metabolism rate by up to 5%. The University of Washington study indicates 8-10 glasses of water daily provides the optimum level for living a healthy active lifestyle.
In summary, choosing to live a healthy active lifestyle and working to reduce the effects of aging will serve your youthful skin well in the future.
