As you get older, you might start glancing in the mirror and thinking that you need to look into skin rejuvenation in Buckinghamshire and elsewhere to help treat those little wrinkles and crow’s feet as they appear.
But while this is certainly something that many, many people out there do and is a brilliant way of turning back the clock a bit, you should also prioritise health and fitness at the same time so you know you’re doing all you can to retain your youthful glow.
There’s a lot of talk about vitamins A, C and E when it comes to looking after your skin, but there’s another one that you might want to focus on over the next few months if you want to stay looking as young as possible for as long as possible… and that’s vitamin K!
This particular vitamin is necessary for clotting our blood and it’s also thought that it can help us to maintain strong bones and good bone density as we get older. But it can also help our skin age well so perhaps start filling the fridge with certain produce to ensure you’re getting your daily recommended amount.
Fish, liver, eggs and meat are good sources of this vitamin, as are green leafy veggies like spinach, kale, collards, mustard greens, Swiss chard, green leaf lettuce, parsley and turnip greens.
It’s thought that vitamin K can help your skin retain its elasticity, so stock your fridge and see how you get on. If you’re a bit hesitant when it comes to eating your greens, you could always try and drink them instead – you can easily whip up a tasty juice using two green apples, two big handfuls of kale and four celery sticks. Yummy!
