Why a Colorful Diet is Key 612 408 Facercise

Why a Colorful Diet is Key

facial exercisesA healthy lifestyle is essential for beautiful, youthful looking skin. While we’ve written about many specific foods to eat for aging, a good general guideline is to eat a colorful diet. Antioxidants are responsible for the vivid hues in many foods, which means that eating an array of produce from the color spectrum helps combat the signs of aging. It’s an excellent way to complement a daily practice of facial exercises and good skin care protocol.

Here is a breakdown of some of the benefits of each hue:

Green

Leafy greens are rich in iron, fiber, folate and vitamins A, C, E and K. While vitamin K is less common than the others in the list, it’s important—it protects against bone disease, inflammation and dark under eye circles. These greens also contain indoles, isocyanate and sulforaphane, which inhibit carcinogens and therefore may ward off various cancers. Some good choices are kale, spinach, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, broccoli, bok choy and mustard greens.

Red

Many red and pink foods combat free radical damage that causes the breakdown of collagen and elastin. They contain lycopene, a vital carotenoid that boosts heart health and protects the skin against sun damage from the inside out. It has been shown to reduce hyperpigmentation, age spots and melasma. Lycopene also benefits blood pressure, bone health and the prostate. Some excellent sources include tomatoes, red bell peppers, pink grapefruit, mangoes, papaya and guava. These choices are also very high in vitamin C, which boosts collagen production and immunity.

Orange

Orange-colored foods like pumpkin, squash, sweet potatoes, yams, carrots, apricots, cantaloupe and mangoes contain alpha- and beta-carotene, which converts to vitamin A in the body. These powerful carotenoids help remove destructive free radical scavengers from the body, stopping damage in its tracks. Beta-carotene also helps protect against sun damage and imparts a healthy, natural glow.

Purple

Both red-purple and blue-purple translates to some powerful antioxidants. The general rule is that the darker the color, the more antioxidant rich the fruit or vegetable. Eggplant, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, beets, prunes and cranberries all help fight free radical damage in a big way.

Yellow-Green

Avocados are a good example of this category, which is loaded with carotenoids, lutein and zeaxanthin to fight macular degeneration, and beta-cryptothanxin, which promotes cellular communication. Antioxidant-rich yellow green foods that boost skin health include green peas, collard greens, yellow corn and honeydew melon.

Load your plate with as many of these colors as possible to fight the signs of aging and give your skin a youthful glow. Click here for more anti-aging tips and information on Facercise, our revolutionary system of facial exercises.

Anti-Aging Habits 500 333 Facercise

Anti-Aging Habits

facial exercisesDo you want to take years off your face? Then it’s time to adopt healthy habits, from wearing sunscreen and sunglasses to avoiding smoking and doing facial exercises. Youthful looks aren’t dependent upon good genes aka intrinsic aging. Research shows that somewhere between 70 and 80 percent of how we age is a result of extrinsic aging, which refers to our lifestyle, environment and skin protocol. This means that good choices and healthy habits can make a major difference in how your skin ages.

Here are the anti-aging habits to master if you want to look your youthful best.

Avoid Smoking

Smoking robs the skin of oxygen, creating a dull, tired appearance. It causes nasty vertical lines around the mouth and Crow’s feet. Smoking also breaks down collagen, which gives skin its elasticity and slows healing. It’s one of the worst things you can do to your skin.

Protect Against Sun Exposure

The sun’s dangerous rays cause premature wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and collagen breakdown. Wear sunscreen religiously, rain or shine, every single day to protect your delicate skin. Use vitamin C to help fight sun damage and eat foods rich in beta-carotene to help protect skin from the inside out.

Avoid Frowning

Repetitive facial movements like squinting and frowning cause the formation of fine lines and wrinkles—and unattractive ones at that. Avoid these unnecessary expressions to minimize these lines.

Hydrate

Drink lots of water to keep your skin hydrated from the inside out. Proper hydration will plump up fine lines and wrinkles and help maintain radiance.

Wear Sunglasses

Protect the delicate skin around your eyes and avoid squinting by wearing sunglasses whenever you walk out the door.

Reduce Stress

Stress can take its toll on your skin, so engage in stress reducing activities to minimize its impact. Meditate, exercise, read, do yoga or anything else that makes you feel less stressed.

Do Facial Exercises

Facercise helps you defy gravity and firms sagging skin. Doing facial exercises on a consistent basis helps skin look tighter and more toned. Facercise also stimulates circulation which gives your skin a healthy glow.

Work Out

Exercise and partake in physical activity as much as possible. It boosts immunity, increases flexibility, reduces stress and helps your body detox.

Sleep Right

Sleep on your back to avoid crepey skin on the neck and decolletage and to prevent the deepening of lines.

Makeover Your Lifestyle

Eat a healthy, antioxidant-rich diet, avoid alcohol as much as possible and exercise regularly to keep yourself looking young and beautiful.

6 Ways to Boost Collagen 500 333 Facercise

6 Ways to Boost Collagen

facial exercisesCollagen is everything if you want firm, supple skin. This naturally occurring protein is responsible for smoothing wrinkles and maintaining skin’s elasticity. Unfortunately, once we hit age 20—that’s right, 20—our collagen supplies start breaking down. Skin becomes thinner, more fragile and less resilient.

Fortunately, there are easy ways to boost collagen.

1. Eat a Vitamin C-Rich Diet

Research shows that a vitamin C stimulates collagen production and helps reduce oxidative damage. Eat a diet rich in this antioxidant vitamin to promote smoother, firmer skin. Produce like kiwi, mangoes, citrus, berries, tomatoes, red bell peppers and green leafy vegetables are excellent sources.

2. Facial Exercises

A regular Facercise practice boosts collagen production and improves blood flow. Facial exercises also combats muscle atrophy and helps define contours. There is no better way to get firmer, stronger skin!

3. Facial Massage

Facial massage is great way to stimulate collagen production while reducing stress. Use upward motions when washing or massaging your face.

4. Eat Foods Rich in Sulphur

Sulphur is a trace mineral that aids in collagen formation. Some good sources are beans, garlic, eggs, cabbage and nuts like almonds, walnuts, peanuts and Brazil nuts.

5. Protect Against Sun Damage

The sun’s powerful ultraviolet rays cause photodamage and break down collagen. Wear sun protective block every day, rain or shine. At a minimum, apply it to your face, neck, décolletage and hands. Eat foods that contain the antioxidant lycopene, which helps fight sun damage from the inside out. Tomatoes, watermelon, grapefruit, guava, papaya, cabbage and red bell peppers are awesome sources.

6. Avoid Sugar and Smoke

Two of collagen’s worst enemies are smoking and sugar. Smoking restricts blood flow, which leads to collagen depletion. Sugar attaches to collagen and weighs it down, decreasing flexibility and making it stuff. Eliminate both if you want youthful, glowing skin.
