7 Anti-Inflammatory Foods

facial exercisesThe buzz these days is all about an anti-inflammatory diet—and for good reason. Following an anti-inflammatory diet is an excellent way to improve your overall health and combat the signs of aging. Many doctors tout this type of diet because it can reduce blood triglycerides, decrease the risk of high blood pressure and prevent cardiovascular disease. Anti-inflammatory diets have been shown to improve physical recovery time and reduce the risk of many chronic illnesses and diseases. Eating anti-inflammatory foods is also an excellent complement to a good skincare program and regimen of anti-aging facial exercises.

While there are many different anti-inflammatory diets to choose from, there are several types of food that can be found in most. Most doctors recommend avoiding processed foods and those high in refined sugars and simple carbs. Read on for a few foods that will help you fight inflammation in your body.

1. Water

Proper hydration definitely helps your body fight off inflammation and flush out the toxins. If you get bored simply drinking water, switch it up with lemon water, honey water and green tea to up your antioxidant ante.

2. Leafy Greens

Dark leafy greens such as spinach, broccoli, collard greens and kale contains high levels of dietary fiber and a rich content of vitamins and minerals that fight inflammation, such as iron, calcium and an array of phytochemicals.

3. Fatty Fish

Oily fish that are high in omega-43 fatty acids are a great choice for your health, skin and waistline. Try to eat several servings of salmon, mackerel, tuna or sardines each week.

4. Nuts

Loaded with fiber, vitamin e and some healthy fat, nuts are a great way to satiate your diet and reduce inflammation. Almonds, Brazil nuts, cashews and walnuts are all great choices.

5. Whole Grains

Swap out white bread, pasta and rice for whole-grains that are fiber-rich. They will fill you up without spiking your blood sugar levels like “white” breads and other products.

6. Peppers

Bell peppers are the perfects example of colorful veggies that increase your antioxidant consumption and reduce inflammation.

7. Berries

Berries are loaded with vitamin C and antioxidants that can significantly decrease inflammation. The darker the berry, the higher the antioxidant content, but all are good choices.

5 Ways to Reduce Dark Circles 500 333 Facercise

5 Ways to Reduce Dark Circles

reduce dark circles with facial exerciseOne of the most annoying signs of aging are those dark circles under the eyes that never seem to go away. The skin under our eyes is extremely thin and delicate, which is why we need to give that area a little extra care. Here are five tips for reducing the appearance of dark circles (hint: one of them is a facial exercise) and preventing them from getting worse in the future.

1. Sleep on Your Back

One of the best things you can do to prevent puffiness and dark circles is to sleep on your back. When you sleep on your side or your stomach, fluid tends to collect under your eyes. Sleeping on your back will also help prevent wrinkles on your face, neck and décolletage.

2. Do the Eye Opener Facial Exercise

One of our favorite facial exercises is the Eye Opener. This Facercise boosts circulation in the area to help address puffiness and dark circles. Do your entire Facercise set twice daily for best results.

3. Eat and Drink Right

Reduce the salt in your diet as much as possible, as it causes water retention in the worst places. Excessive sodium intake also hinders circulation, which makes the blood vessels underneath the skin appear darker. Drink lots of plain, cucumber or lemon water. Avoid drinking too much alcohol and eat plenty of antioxidant-rich produce to help combat unsightly dark circles.

4. Quit Bad Habits

Don’t smoke, rub your eyes and try to avoid crying. If you have hay fever or allergies, get medication to treat these conditions.

5. Use Natural Remedies

Make sure this vulnerable area is properly hydrated with moisturizer and then enhance these efforts with natural solutions. Go old school and place cucumber slices or steeped, cooled down tea bags under your eyes for 10 minutes while you relax. Another great trick is to put spoons in the refrigerator for one hour and then hold them gently over the area until the spoons are warm.
