If you aren’t too impressed with those costly beauty creams and lotions that promise to make you look younger, then it’s probably the time when you should take a U-turn and get back to the natural world. Yes, your diet is the single most important parameter that could release the stress levels of your body and make healthier cells grow naturally- thus, letting you feel and look fresh from within.
How do antioxidants work?
Different antioxidants work differently, but each one of them has the final target of getting rid of ‘bad matters’ or toxins from your body. When you feel stressed out, your body actually starts releasing chemical toxins which are responsible for oxidation or damage to healthy cells. At low levels, these toxins are removed from your body through body enzymes and glutathione. However, when stress starts overpowering your body cells, these toxins could be removed only by external ingestion of antioxidants like Vitamin C, Vitamin A, Flavonoids, Resveratrol, Retinol, and others, which potentially fight against the effect of harmful toxins. The sooner you start with your anti-oxidation regime, the better you look and the healthier you are – and thus delay ageing.
What are the benefits of antioxidants for your skin?
Taking adequate and appropriate amounts of ‘antioxidant enriched foods’ daily, is not only scientifically proven to revitalize your skin, but it is also a crucial health potion to waive off hair, liver, gastric, immune and all other ailments. While antioxidants like Vitamin C and E can protect you against sun damage and skin cancer, it may also reduce pigmentation and delay the appearance of wrinkles. On the other hand, anti-ageing natural chemicals, such as Resveratol, which is a very powerful antioxidant present in red wine, can slow down your overall ageing process.
Popular sources of antioxidants
Some of the relishing and natural sources of antioxidants include apple, berries, green tea, pomegranate, garlic, sweet potato, yoghurt, tomatoes, and broccoli. If you want a lavish alternative, then red wine and dark chocolates when taken in the appropriate quantities, does the same favour to your body and skin cells.
