Does a Healthy Diet Reverse Wrinkles?
Many women who have been busy leading their lives will one day stop and look in the mirror and be shocked. Life would have passed them by and they would suddenly realize that they are now seeing the first signs of ageing – wrinkles. One the first thoughts would be – can I stop or reverse wrinkles now? Well you can’t really remove what is already there, but you can certainly undo a part of the damage. You can also prevent it from becoming any worse.
There are two ways in which one can do this – one would be a healthy diet. If yours is one that consists of junk food and bad timings for meals, then it is time to rethink the situation. If you want to reverse wrinkles, then you will have to have a healthy diet, one that is made up of green and leafy vegetables, fruits, the right kind of lean meats and the use of right kinds of fat. You will have to work on everything starting from the kind of oil you use to the balance of foods that goes into your mouth.
A very famous diet that was formulated by Dr Nicholar Perricone could stand you in good stead. He gives special emphasis in what is known as the GI carbohydrates. He maintains that we need to have low GI rather than high ones in our diet. High GI carbs are basically those that our blood stream absorbs very fast. This is what we find in white bread, sugar, chips, cakes, biscuits and the like. These will have to be replaced with fruits and vegetables as well as fish which have a very low GI rate.
In order to reverse wrinkles, when it comes to eating, it is recommended that one eats a number of nutritious but small meals, rather than overdo it at one meal. Your meals should be moderately balanced with carbohydrates, proteins and the fats. This will mean a sensible mix of vegetables, fruits, lean meats and pulses. Also there is nothing that can beat the therapeutic powers of water. Drink as much as you can as many times as you can.
Besides a healthy diet there are certain skin care regimens that you would do got to follow. Never step out of home without a good sunscreen with a high SPF factor. An SPF or Sun Protection Factor of anything more than 15 would be very useful. You can also reverse wrinkles by following a good skin care regime. Also cleanse, tone and moisturize at least twice a day. Stay clear of artificial air conditioning as this sucks the moisture out of your skin. Try and use a humidifier instead.
Another simple yet effective tip to reverse wrinkles is to remain as happy as you can. Frowning creates furrows on your face thereby leading to wrinkles. Also keep a face mist handy so that you can spray your face when you feel your skin needs some hydration. When you step out into the sun always wear eye shades to protect your eyes from dark circles.
