Feed your face

Description: Feed your face

It’s what we put in – not on – our bodies that really counts when it comes to younger-looking skin. Expensive anti-ageing moisturisers certainly play their part, but don’t forget the stop-the-clock ammunition on the shelves of the supermarket. Here are six steps to a fresher complexion:

·         Drink five or six glasses of fluid every day to keep skin hydrated and flush out toxins. It doesn’t always have to be water – black or green tea also gives you health-boosting flavonoids, while juiced fruit and veg have been proven by German scientists to dramatically improve skin’s hydration and density.

·         Omega 3 fatty acids from salmon, sardines, walnuts and omega 3-enriched eggs all help plump up our skin cells.

·         A, C and E are the vitamins that your skin loves. Antioxidant A (in spinach, carrots, sweet potatoes and apricots) protects the skin from free radicals responsible for premature ageing; C (in kiwis, citrus fruits and broccoli) boosts collagen; while E (in dark green veg and olive oil) protects the skin from sun damage.

·         Wholegrain foods contain more anti-ageing antioxidants than the white alternatives, and the fibre helps stop bad fats and toxins from damaging skin.

·         Silica holds moisture in the skin and helps maintain its elasticity. Find it in celery, cucumber skin, green beans and strawberries.

·         Carotenoids – found in leafy greens, some fruits and root veg – give the skin a healthy glow. In fact, scientists in the US found that a carotenoid glow was more attractive to the human eye than a suntan.

Walk this way

a brisk walk daily can delay the ageing process by 12 years: it helps the body usr oxygen more effectively

Few things in life that help us stay younger for longer are painless, fun and free – but walking is one of them. Scientists in Canada say a brisk walk daily can delay the ageing process by 12 years: it helps the body usr oxygen more effectively – and increased oxygen levels help stimulate the body’s immune system. All you need is a good pair of trainers and a bottle of water. Begin by walking for 15 to 20 minutes five days a week and build up; as you get stronger, swing your arms to burn more calories and pull in your tummy to strengthen your core abdominal muscles. Keep it interesting by varying the route, altering your speed and downloading your favourite music on to your MP3 player. One hour’s vigorous exercise is said to increase life expectancy by two hours – so start banking those steps now.
