Eat Your Way to Beautiful Skin

It is not your age that decides your youthfulness. Staying young and keeping fit is absolutely in your hands. Nutrition, exercise, and a great beauty ritual will keep you young. Here are some anti aging nutrition tips that will give you a clear idea as to what foods form part of antiaging care diet:

-Limit the intake of fats and sugar.
-Consume a moderate-dose multiple vitamin-and-mineral supplement on a regular basis.
-Eat whole grains and plenty of organic fruits and veggies.
-It is advisable to take some extra antioxidants, such as 100 IU of vitamin E.
-Drink plenty of water, at least about 10-12 glasses everyday.
-Focus on eating complex carbohydrates, rather than going in for fast digesting carbohydrate foods like rice, wheat, bread and pasta that shoot up your blood sugar level. Also they tend to cause weight gain, thus making your obese.
-Avoid underground vegetables like potato, yam, and carrots that tend to cause sugar imbalance. Opt for above ground veggies, as they have antioxidant properties.
-Prefer consuming fresh fruits, rather than opting for fruit juices, which contain high fat and sugar content.

Not only will you feel fabulous and energetic, your skin will radiate!
