Natural Ways to Tighten and Firm Your Skin

When you are interested in anti-aging, one of the main goals is to tighten and firm your skin. This includes smoothing out lines and wrinkles, and tightening the loose skin around your eyes, mouth, and your neck.

Here are some natural ways you can tighten and firm your skin.

Get More Antioxidants

The reason antioxidants are pushed so much for all things health and beauty is because of how beneficial they are. Antioxidants help to fight free radicals in your body, including right there in your skin.

There are a lot of bad things in the environment that can detract from your skin’s elasticity, but when you have more antioxidants and other nutrients, you are able to get it back. Look for foods with antioxidants in them, including citrus fruits, blueberries, strawberries, and many veggies. You also want to get more vitamin A and C to help fight those free radicals.

Top Anti-aging Vitamins

Last up on the list are the vitamins. Here is a brief rundown of vitamins that can help you with anti-aging:

Vitamin C You want to get as much vitamin C into your body as you can to protect your skin from stress and to help the skin cells to keep producing as they should.

To get vitamin C, look for citrus fruits like grapefruit and oranges, as well as veggies like bell peppers and broccoli.

Vitamin A Vitamin A is also good for your skin, protecting you from early signs of aging. For more of this vitamin in your diet, try squash, dark, leafy greens, sweet potatoes, and carrots.

Vitamin KDon’t forget about your vitamin K! This is great for reducing dark circles under your eyes, which can age you dramatically. Get your vitamin K from broccoli, romaine lettuce, and parsley.

B Complex Last up is B complex vitamins, which are going to provide biotin and extra moisture to your skin, as well as your hair and nails. You can enjoy potatoes, mushrooms, and sunflower seeds for B complex vitamins.

If you don’t feel like you are getting enough vitamins through food sources, don’t forget you can take additional supplements.

Use Sunscreen Daily

Even if your skin is already losing some of its elasticity, it is never too late to protect it from further damage. People who go their entire lives with excessive amounts of sun exposure and don’t use enough protection from the sun’s UV rays tend to have loose skin with more visible dark spots, lines, and wrinkles as they age. You can start protecting your skin and firming it up as you age by wearing sunscreen whenever you leave the house, and using extra protection like hats if you will be outside for long stretches of time.

Make a Face Tightening Mask

Many face masks provide healing abilities for your skin, including ones that can help firm and tighten the skin. You should look for a mask with all-natural ingredients so that you are not doing more harm than good. If you can’t find one, you can always make your own with a few simple ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen. For a simple skin tightening mask, you just need to combine plain yogurt with an egg white and a little table sugar. Mix it well and apply it to your face. Leave it long enough for it to dry, then rinse off with cool water.

Eat the Right Foods

Lastly, there are certain foods that are known to help provide a more youthful appearance and protect you from premature signs of aging. These include foods with more zinc, vitamin C, and vitamin E. Healthy foods like fatty fish, broccoli, dark leafy greens, and nuts will do wonders for your skin.

 

The best nutrition for healthy aging – slowing down the sands of time

nutrition for healthy aging

There are lots of things you can do to slow down the sands of time and age a little slower. A lot of this boils down to the right lifestyle and if you can avoid the sun, get lots of exercise and learn to better handle stress; all these things will keep you looking and feeling younger.
But sometimes it’s even simpler than that. In fact, one of the very best ways to stay young is just to eat right. Eating the right foods can help you to fend off deterioration as well as to fortify yourself against illness and help your body to keep rejuvenating itself.

Let’s take a look at some of the very best nutrition that will help you to stay youthful…

Antioxidants
Most important of all are your antioxidants. These are things like vitamin C which help to combat free radicals in the body. Free radicals are compounds that travel freely around the body and that are reactive when they come into contact with the cell walls. This is bad news, because they can eventually damage the exterior of the cells to the point where they look wrinkled and aged. Worse, they can eventually break through to the DNA and cause mutations that lead to cancer.Eating lots of antioxidants will keep these to a minimum, thereby reducing the negative effects they have on the body.

Immune Support
Vitamin C also happens to boost the immune system, which means that it can help to fight all manner of illnesses and invading forces that can badly damage your health in older age.

Omega 3 Fatty Acid
Omega 3 fatty acid is very good for keeping your brain young and healthy in older age. That’s because it is able to improve cell membrane permeability, speeding up communication between brain cells.
Better yet, omega 3 is also an antioxidant, protects joints and improves nutrient absorption. It also slows the break down of muscle (which vitamin C also does).

Amino Acids
Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins and they’re incredibly important for your health – especially as they age. These compounds serve all manner of important roles in the body from forming enzymes to aid digestion to forming neuro chemicals. They also act as the raw materials that the body is made from though and that makes them crucial in restoring tissues as we get older including muscle and skin.
