As you age, many different changes start to take place in your skin. One of the most noticeable changes is a lack of tightness, which is characterised by sagging skin and wrinkles. By eating the right diet and supplements, you could help give your skin the nutrients it needs to stay smooth and tighter for long.
One of the most important skin-friendly vitamins to make sure you have in your diet is Vitamin C. It promotes the formation of collagen and elastin fibres, which are crucial in stopping skin from sagging. You can find it in fresh fruit and vegetables, particularly in citrus fruits, red bell pepper and collard greens.
Vitamin A is another essential for your skin, as it can help your skin repair its damaged tissue. Fruits and vegetables are a great source of Vitamin A, but it can also be found in milk and egg yolks.
You should also make sure your diet provides you with plenty of Vitamin E, which is great for reducing the signs of sun damage to your skin. It neutralises the free radicals within your body with can lead to sagging, wrinkled skin and is found in foods such as nuts, whole grains and vegetable oils.
Ensure your diet contains plenty of the above vitamins and you’ll be giving your skin what it needs to look its best. If you’re looking for a way to improve your skin and minimise the look of wrinkles, non-invasive surgical procedures could help.
