Sure, we may not like it but aging is a normal, natural part of life.  While we certainly should embrace it for what it can give us, it is not always easy to do.  And it can be particularly difficult if we feel like what we look like on the outside does not align with how young we feel on the inside.  

Now, the visible signs of aging really mean nothing, since we all age differently and for different reasons and in different ways.  But there are lots of things we can do to slow down this process. In addition to clinical, cosmetic, and/or aesthetic Mediluxe Coolsculpting procedures, you supplement your health by consuming healthy foods and even applying some natural compounds to your skin.

AVOCADO

You are probably familiar with the wrinkle-fighting benefits of avocado, even if you don’t really understand how it helps.  Indeed, many skin care products include avocado on the ingredients list and the reason for this is avocado’s rich Vitamin-B complex and Vitamin-E content. Also, avocado is quite rich in fatty acids and Vitamin C which improve soft tissue integrity and fight the development of free radicals (which are known to cause wrinkles in the skin).

BLUEBERRIES

They might seem like simple, little, blue berries, but this fruit is actually a superfood.  Also high in vitamin E—just like the avocado—blueberries are also rich in something called anthocyanins.  These compounds contribute to improved collagen production integrity by neutralizing the enzyme that would normally break down connective tissue.  Actually, all berries contain flavonoids, probiotics, polyphenols, vitamins, and antioxidants.

SALMON

Speaking of fatty acids, salmon is also rife with them. In fact, salmon is the most abundant animal source of fatty acids you will find in nature. In particular, salmon is rich in the Omega-3 fatty acid, which contributes to improved brain health.  But salmon is low in fat and, as a protein, is rich in the carotenoid astaxanthin—which is what gives the fish its gorgeous color. Astaxanthin is a powerful free-radical fighter, too.

TOMATOES

You might not realize this but tomatoes are packed with Vitamin C. They are also rich in lycopene, which helps to protect your skin from UV damage; it also helps to improve your vascular system.  By improving your vascular system, it helps to keep your skin feeling and looking fresh, too.
