Anti-aging not only from the skin care process, daily diet also greatly influences your “youthful” beauty!
Before, when it comes to anti-aging, we only think about skin care methods and cosmetic intervention. However, the daily diet also significantly affects the skin and body. According to some studies, your lifestyle and eating habits account for 80% of your body’s aging level. Eating right not only helps you have a healthy body but also repels signs of age.
DETERMINING THE BODY HEALTH
You should know your body mass index (BMI) to establish a proper diet, without affecting your health. For Asians, normal BMI will be between 18.5 – 23. So, if you are below or above this threshold, your health is having problems, you should adjust your daily eating habits.
BUILDING BALANCE AND DIVERSITY DIET
Many studies have shown that excessive intake of calories into the body makes aging faster. Therefore, you should limit all types of single-carbohydrate foods such as white rice, sugar, candy, etc. Excess carbohydrate energy can make you obese and affect your skin badly. Recommended carbohydrate intake for an adult with a stable BMI of 135 grams / day.
SUPPLY ENOUGH PROTEIN
Protein plays an important role to produce collagen, increase elasticity and reduce wrinkles on the skin. However, you should also note that if you load protein by eating a lot of red meat such as beef, pork, sheep, it is easy to make them “the culprit” of aging. High serum phosphate levels when you eat red meat lead to many consequences for your health and your biological age. You should only eat red meat 1-2 times a week with a serving of 100-150 grams each time.
The proteins in egg whites, cereals, poultry and fish are very beneficial to the body. If you eat a lot of these proteins, your health and beauty are also unaffected. Especially fatty fish such as Omega 3 are very helpful in delaying aging. In addition, this fat also has the ability to increase resistance and protect the skin under sunlight.
SUPPLEMENT OF ANTI-OXYGEN
Vitamin E helps the body eliminate free radicals to help skin stay healthy and youthful, enhance the natural moisture for the skin. Meanwhile, vitamin C functions to maintain and increase blood circulation, prevent skin aging. These two beneficial vitamins are often found in green vegetables and fruits such as butter, orange, lemon, …
In addition, beta-carotene found in orange or yellow vegetables such as carrots and pumpkins increases immunity and purifies excess free oxygen atoms in the skin. Combining these three nutrients can help you fight age-related macular degeneration (AMD).
