Yes, we can, through diet and exercise, keep ourselves looking younger and feeling fitter, and it does not have to cost a fortune.
It is funny to see how much money some women are prepared to part with for the promise of a beautiful glowing complexion, and they will hand over hard-earned cash for a range of things from fresh snails’ gel! to placenta face mask, which will be madly rubbed into the face hoping to give an instant turned-back-time look!
But instead of spending near enough a week’s wages on these creams that are applied to our skin, we can save fortunes and do it as nature intended, and feed and nourish our skin from inside out. The foods we eat will actually have a great impact on our skin and anti-ageing, so on your shopping list scrub off the snail gels and such, and instead replace them with a super anti-ageing fruit: the Melon. This is incredible for our skin. It has carotenoids, which allow vitamin A to be formed. This is vital for maintaining skin health and protecting skin from oxidative stress (this is what accelerates the internal ageing process and manifests itself externally as those dreaded wrinkles).
So make sure that in your diet you have plenty of fruits and vegetables. And why not make it part of your beauty routine every day to snack on a melon? (Or in other words eat your moisturisers!)
