3 tips to help you age disgracefully by reducing your visible signs of ageingYour genetics, diet and lifestyle, previous sun exposure, level of health, stress and hormones, amongst other things, may all contribute to the signs of visible ageing. Our top 3 tips to make you feel and look great include:
- Resveratrol – the ‘Fountain of Youth’ Resveratrol is well known for its effect on healthy ageing and longevity; often called the ‘Fountain of Youth’. Resveratrol’s age defying activity is linked to the activation of a specific gene (SIRT1) that delays the onset of age-related conditions and promotes the long term survival of irreplaceable cells. Resveratrol also provides anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and free radical scavenging activity and supports healthy connective tissues including the skin.
- Collagen – to ‘plump and hydrate’ your skin Everyone wants to have firm, younger looking skin when they look in the mirror. As you age, collagen production starts to decline and your existing collagen levels start to break down; this is when you might start to notice small creases or ‘laugh’ lines beginning to appear. Supplementing with collagen helps to attract and bind water to keep your skin plumped up and hydrated for firmer, younger looking skin and to help replenish lost collagen levels.
- Grape seed – boost your antioxidant defences Grape seed is a potent antioxidant, well worth its weight in gold. You can’t see, feel or touch the damage oxidation and free radicals do to your body at a cellular level, and you have over 37.2 trillion cells in your body! Free radical damage is heavily implicated in the ageing process. Grape seed provides protection against free radical damage and environmental chemicals and toxins, helping to slow down the ageing process.
