Watch this video as Sophie shares her tips for Anti-Aging naturally:
Here's the breakdown of the tips mentioned on Sophie's video:
* QUIT SUGAR
This is important. You need to quit any added sugar you’re putting into your diet. Blood sugar levels are known to go up and down and quitting excess sugar gives you the opportunity to stabilize them. Blood sugar is completely correlated with anti-aging, and as a person ages, Glycation is responsible for the yellowish tinge and tone once the proteins of their skin become altered.
* ADOPT A WHOLE FOOD PLANT BASED DIET
When talking about this diet it’s not referring to becoming vegan, a common misconception. After a 30 day challenge two major benefits were reported, the first being weight loss and the second was achieving brighter, glowing looking skin. These results appear once fatty foods, animal foods, saturated fats are removed as they clog up your digestive system. Cutting back dairy will also have you noticing a difference in your skin’s appearance.
* QUIT ALCOHOL
As we age our bodies do not process alcohol like it did when we were younger. When drinking more than one glass of wine a day your risk of breast cancer rises. Your liver will someday need to work extremely hard to try detoxing the toxins that you put into your body. Every now and then your other organs find it difficult to do their own work creating more health risks.
* SKIN CARE
There are few ingredients that have been proven to reduce and even eliminate physical signs of aging. An ingredient that is very important to anti-aging is Vitamin C containing Ascorbic Acid which is the most powerful form with a strong enough concentration to work. Sophie’s favorite? goPure’s Vitamin C Moisturizer that is filled with moisturizing jojoba oil and shea butter.
This is a chemical that should be introduced to your skin care regimen. Due to skin becoming thinner with aging, retinol appears to thicken the skin building elastin and collagen similar to the benefits of Vitamin C, although Retinol is known to speed up cell turnover. Sophie recommends goPure’s Active Retinol Intensive Formula Cream.
* ROSE HEMP SEED OIL
This oil especially organic and cold pressed works the best while fresh and still active. Rose Hemp Seed Oil has been clinically proven to alter the look of your skin helping to resolve any skin imperfections. Get your Rosehip Oil here.
* CONTINUALLY DETOX
This isn’t a juice cleanse or a yearly detox, those are just band aids. In order to properly continually detox your body, you need to incorporate fiber as it supports the body’s detoxification helping bring balance to lymphatic system, liver, kidneys and even your skin. Smoothies are a great way to detox by adding essential vitamins into your daily life.
* FLAX SEEDS
In order to benefit from these healthy seeds, you must eat them every day. Containing a high amount of Omega 3s and good fats, Flax Seeds not only help in the appearance of youthful looking skin but can help the body with breast cancer prevention.
This is the most important tip in anti-aging and is a simple and effective thing you can do. Meditation brings a person a light about them glowing through their skin as they are very centered and in the present. Those that meditate not only appear with brighter looking skin but with a youthful radiance. Less stress means less wrinkles and aging.
