Youthfulness and beauty seem to go hand in hand together. As you get older, some beauty spoilers start appearing so it is best to take preventive measures early on to preserve your young and glowing look. Here are wonderful tips that work:
- Get defensive on your skin with a daily SPF. This helps prevent wrinkles, blotches, and protects skin from cancer and other diseases.
- Avoid foods that have anything with a dark pigment like wine, soy sauce and coffee as these may cause yellowish teeth. You may chop on apples, carrots and cucumbers instead that naturally cleanse the teeth.
- Add saltwater fish in your diet that contains high levels of omega-3 fatty acids which help regulate skin’s glow and luster.
Your body needs fuel for exercise, but eating a large meal right before working out can cause discomfort. Exercising muscles draws blood away from the stomach, slowing digestion and causing stomach upset. To avoid this, wait 1 hour to 4 hours after a meal before exercising. The larger the meal, the longer you should wait.
If you haven’t eaten in several hours, however, your fuel tank will be on empty. A small snack (such as yogurt , half a bagel, or a piece of fruit) eaten 30 minutes to 60 minutes exercise will boost flagging blood sugar levels without causing you nausea or indigestion.
Carbohydrate is your body’s preferred fuel, so include whole grains starchy vegetables, fruit, or non-fat or low-fat dairy products in meals and snacks eaten before workout. Liquid meals, such as milk and fruit smoothies, are also an option. Avoid high-fat foods, because they slow digestion. It’s important to drink enough water during exercise.
The great news is science has granted you one more great reason to enjoy your daily cup of coffee.
One answer to keep you youthful through the years is to take a balanced diet that supplies antioxidants.
What’s the big deal about antioxidants? They are nature’s way of protecting the body from physical illness and degeneration by helping neutralize harmful substances called free radicals accumulate naturally at low levels but harmful environmental factors such as too much sun exposure and pollution from cigarette smoke and exhaust fumes can speed up their toxic effects. That includes making you look older than you should.
