Your Natural Beauty. Anti-Ageing Rules

Author: Marianna Sulic

Exposure to pollution, sunlight, stress and the normal processes of metabolism generate a lot of free radicals in our body. Free radical damage causes ageing of our body, and can destroy cells and DNA.  Therefore, it is wise to have as many antioxidants in our diet as possible. 

   

  

Hydration is also key to gorgeous looking skin. Our body retains less water molecules with age, hence skin feels dryer and wrinkles form. This is not just about drinking lots of water and applying moisturizers to our skin, but looking at our food choices that can keep our skin hydrated from the inside out.

Boost your antioxidants.  Not only are antioxidants excellent at fighting free radicals and protecting the skin from oxidative stress; other benefits include, help with skin cell regeneration, giving you a more youthful complexion; clearance of toxins that can lead to fine lines and slowing the formation of wrinkles and hyperpigmentation.
