Nutrition & aging

This post will mainly target women, but men also care about the aging process as well. Let's get something straight first, everyone ages, its a natural process and you can't stop it. But what you can do is help slow it down. There are literally thousands of anti aging creams and gels on the market today, that aren't that cheap, promise so much but the results aren't always that worth while. One thing most people forget or don't even realise is that good nutrition can REALLY help the ageing process.

Think about it - what you put into your body is what your body has to use to repair and grow. If you feed your body nothing but inflammatory foods and drinks, that is going to do no good for your body, especially your skin. Unfortunately skin tends to be one of the last parts of the body to be nourished, that's why you have to be fairly strict if you want to look good in your later years. I'm not saying you can never have an alcoholic drink or a cheat meal ever again, because you can, but you have to be consistent with your nutrition. I have even come across women that are using anti-aging products in their 20's! I'm sorry but, are you crazy?? Those products are manufactured for people that are older, not people with youthful skin, so if you're doing that, just stop. To treat your skin from the inside, you need to be hydrated and have a healthy diet that contains lots of vitamins and minerals (from food! don't drug yourself up on vitamin tablets and eat a rubbish diet) By piling good food and drink into your body, you're going to be feeding your skin with what it wants and needs.

Some of you reading this might think 'That sounds like way to much effort', and that's fine. But I can assure you it is a whole lot cheaper than forking out on those expensive creams, and its far, far better for you. People who smoke/drink/use sunbeds/eat a poor diet/even do drugs, you can tell who they are when they are older because they look haggard, and if you don't want to look like that, then stop now, and change your diet.
