(NC) Aging gracefully isn’t about trying to look like your younger self again — it’s about living your best life and having the physical and mental health to enjoy it. You can get better with age by taking a proactive approach to your diet and lifestyle. Here are some tips to help you along:
Don’t snooze on good sleep
Restorative sleep is crucial for tip-top health. It also plays a role in your skin’s health. Aim to get around eight hours of uninterrupted sleep each night. Getting enough sleep has been proven to lower the risk of heart disease and stroke, reduce stress, reduce inflammation in the body and improve focus and concentration.
Drink more water
In addition to being proven to help keep skin healthier and reduce signs of aging, staying hydrated can also improve your energy levels and brain function.
Increase fibre intake
Fibre is a major player in so many of our body’s systems, and getting enough can actually help keep you youthful. According to a recent study in the Journals of Gerontology, older people who ate fibre-rich diets were 80 per cent more likely to live longer and stay healthier than those who didn’t. Some top food sources of fibre include flax seeds, apples, artichokes, broccoli, raspberries, and sweet potatoes.
Supplement with collagen and silicon
Healthy skin begins beneath the surface. Collagen and silicon provide the building blocks for healthy, firmer skin. However, both naturally decline in our bodies as we age. Look for high-quality supplements, especially Canadian brands that guarantee transparency, purity and potency. CanPrev Beauty’s Collagen, for example, is clinically proven to give smoother and firmer skin in 28 days. It includes bioactive collagen peptides clinically proven to stimulate skin collagen production.
