Anti-Ageing Diet & Beauty Tips For Complete Beginners
Dr. Jewel Gamadia, a celebrity nutritionist shares some important tips on diet and beauty for beginners trying to adopt an anti-ageing regimen.
Signs of ageing usually start to haunt us in our late 20s and early 30s. As the body ages, you start seeing fine lines around the corners of your eyes and on your forehead. When our body ages, it needs certain nutrients in higher quantities than it did before. There’s no harm in indulging in a skincare routine, but what’s even more important is to identify those nutrients that repair cell damage from external stressors like pollution and UV exposure, as well as old age. Dr. Jewel Gamadia, a celebrity nutritionist, shares his expert tips for younger looking skin.
Morning Ritual for Skin Health
The first step is to know your skin. If your skin feels dull and lifeless, you need to start your day with either beetroot or pomegranate juice, while adding a teaspoon of turmeric into it. Sip it slowly as the nutrients in these fruits need to interact with your saliva thoroughly. If you just gulp the juice down, it won’t do you any good. If you have deeper wrinkles, opt for carrot juice instead.
Important Foods for Cell Repair
To minimise skin cell damage, consider introducing these following foods into your diet:
- Mushrooms (medium sized)
- Foods rich in Omega 3
Foods rich in Omega 3 keep your gut health intact, and add suppleness to your skin, while mushroom, garlic and broccoli contain certain complex compounds that help your body regenerate cells. Make sure these foods are a part of your diet at least 4-5 times a week.
Supplements for younger-looking Skin
Zinc, calcium and vitamin D are three crucial supplements that should be a part of your daily ritual if you wish to delay signs of ageing and achieve a healthier, younger-looking skin. You can take zinc supplements anytime after breakfast or lunch. Calcium can be taken after dinner and vitamin D can be taken in the morning.
If you have thin skin, use a thick moisturiser but if you have oily skin, go for a light moisturiser. The trick to finding the right moisturiser lies in understanding its greasiness on your skin. If you have dry skin, then greasiness is good for you, but for oily or combination skins, try and explore a few different products and choose a moisturiser that does not leave a greasy residue. In addition, regardless of your skin type, massage your face with ice at least twice a week, before applying the moisturiser.
As you grow older, the skin starts losing its elasticity, either from a low content of collagen or/ and sun damage, giving you that tired, dull look that we all dread so much. If you are seriously considering an anti-ageing diet, then you may have to take stricter measures than before. But it can be difficult for many people to follow. Hence, this simpler diet mentioned above can be a fairly effective way to delay signs of ageing.
