Are you doing all you can from a nutritional stand point to feel younger, longer? Here are two steps to combat the signs of aging: eat a “youthful” diet, and add Nu Skin’s daily supplements.
It starts with a youthful diet:
Spinach, sweet potatoes, carrots, cantaloupe, and apricots: These foods contain beta-carotene, a powerful antioxidant that can help prevent free radical damage and support important skin tissues.
Nuts and shellfish: Nuts and shellfish contain significant levels of copper, which helps in the collagen synthesis process to promote skin firmness.
Eggs, dairy, fish, and poultry: These foods contain niacin (or vitamin B3) to help deliver oxygen to skin cells and promote cell multiplication.
Canola oil and olive oil: Make sure to get these oils in your diet—in moderation. They contain mono-unsaturated fats that protect against wrinkles and aid in the absorption of important nutrients, such as vitamin E and lycopene.
Avocado, flaxseed, fatty fish, and spinach: These foods contain Omega-3 fats, which help your skin maintain its natural oils to prevent against infection.
Apples, eggplant, garlic, onions, and tea: These foods contain polyphenols, which protect your skin against oxidative damage that can cause aging.
Brown rice, eggs, turkey, tuna, shrimp, and chicken: These foods contain selenium, which helps rid the body of harmful free radicals and promotes tissue elasticity.
Egg yolks, fish, and fortified milk: These foods contain vitamin A, which helps protect skin from sunburns and keeps skin smooth.
Broccoli, oranges, peppers, and strawberries: These foods contain vitamin C, which helps prevent free radical damage and promotes collagen synthesis to increase skin firmness.
Asparagus, vegetable oils, and whole grains: These foods contain vitamin E, which protects against wrinkles and keeps skin smooth and hydrated.*
Also, remember to supplement. With Nu Skin’s anti-aging science, you can promote younger looking skin by fighting aging at its source in your genes.
