To Appear At Least 10 Years Younger Than Your Actual Age

In this article, I will talk about skin aging, which can make you look up to 10 years younger than your actual age. It's not a secret, it's not a mystery; it's common science. If you pay a little attention, this article will prove very beneficial for you if you really want to improve your skin.

What is skin?

Skin is made up of a combination of fats and proteins, where saturated fats are more and unsaturated fats are less. The significance of these fats will be discussed further in this article, making it clear what fats you need to consume for healthy skin and which ones to avoid.

You are often advised to avoid consuming saturated fats and are often restricted from consuming certain fats. If you completely remove fat from your diet, you age prematurely. You must include the appropriate amount of saturated fats in your diet.

Why are cholesterol or saturated fats beneficial for the body?

✓ The body's cell membranes are made up of 50% cholesterol because the body needs it, so the body produces it itself, and we also consume it through food.

✓ Cholesterol helps in bile production. Bile is a fluid that is produced by the liver. Bile helps digest fat and fat-soluble vitamins found in food, aiding their absorption into the body.

✓ Cholesterol is also necessary for hormone production. As you aged, hormone levels decrease, leading to visible signs of aging. Therefore, it's essential to maintain a balance of these hormones by having cholesterol available in the body.

Best fat-soluble vitamins for improving skin

Fat-soluble means a type of vitamin that is absorbed into the body's fat and remains in the body longer compared to other vitamins. The body uses it when needed.

Vitamin A for skin's firmness and elasticity:

Vitamin A is one of the best for skin health improving. Vitamin A controls various layers of skin called epithelium. Vitamin A helps skin stay soft and firm, maintaining its integrity by supporting the production of collagen and elastin, these two proteins responsible for skin's firmness and elasticity.

Foods containing vitamin A:

Vitamin A is found in leafy green vegetables like spinach, fenugreek, mustard greens, bitter gourd, coriander, mint, moringa, or drumstick leaves. But one essential thing to note here is that you won't get an active form of vitamin A from these. Beta-carotene goes into the body, which the liver converts into an active form of vitamin A. The liver needs to be healthy for the conversion of beta-carotene into an active form of vitamin A. Pay attention to liver health; it's also necessary to include the right amount of leafy greens in your diet because along with vitamin A, you get many other phytonutrients and antioxidants, and excessive beta-carotene is not needed because it's not active; we need the active form, which we get from liver. Egg yolk from organic eggs is one of the best sources of vitamin A instead of farm eggs.

Vitamin E protects the skin:

Vitamin E protects the skin from oxidation, preventing aging slowdown and sunburn. It regulates pituitary hormones, keeping the skin clear in both males and females. In females, when they go through menopause, ovaries go into rest mode, affecting hormone production. Due to decreased hormone production, the pituitary gland also slows down, reducing hormone production. Vitamin E helps regulate these hormones, balancing their secretion and serving as another nutrient building block for healthy skin.

Foods containing vitamin E:

You can get vitamin E from oils like olive oil, palm oil, and red palm oil, leafy greens, nuts, and seeds.

Now let's talk about what to avoid:

1. Avoid AGEs: What does it mean by "(Advanced Glycation End-products) (AGEs)"? Well, when you combine protein with sugar or protein with fat, such as fried chicken, deep-fried donuts, French fries, Korean barbecue chicken, Chinese sweet and sour chicken, or many other modern world recipes, you're adding sugar to protein. This combination converts into sticky proteins in the body, which start clogged arteries. They clogged the glands present in the skin, leading to skin wrinkles and sagging. These stocky proteins are called AGEs (Advanced Glycation End-products). Furthermore, smoking also leads to the formation of AGEs.

2. Stress: due to stress the cortisol level in the body increases, and high cortisol levels become a reason for the increase in AGEs. So, avoid them.

3. Avoid sugar: sugar and refined carbohydrates. Items made from refined carbohydrates like refined flour and bread accelerate oxidation in the body, leading to an increase in aging speed.

To look at least 10 years younger than your actual age

follow the instructions provided in this article and adhere to a healthy ketogenic diet, This diet doesn't completely eliminate carbs; it doesn't make them zero. This was discussed in previous articles. If you combine it with intermittent fasting, the body's repair speed increases. Due to autophagy, new cells are formed, and old cells are discarded. The body replaces damaged proteins with new proteins, which cleanses the system. Your skin glows, wrinkles disappear, and you can look at least 10 years younger than your actual age.
