Ageing begins from when a child is born. However, there are other factors that can lead to premature ageing, including the usage of incorrect skincare products and gorging on unhealthy foods. One can achieve a perfect skin by including turmeric, ginger and green leafy vegetables in the food intake, says an expert.

Speaking at the Anti-Ageing Health and Beauty show, held at the London Olympia this past weekend, Geraldine McCulgan of the College of Naturopathic Medicine said:
“What you eat today… you wear tomorrow.”

The beauty therapist shared some helpful tips on natural choices for anti-ageing and the small changes that one can effect in one’s lifestyle to help slow down ageing.

Accelerating ageing is affected by the following:

  • Glycation – the process of sugar and it affects joints
  • Inflammation
  • Lack of nutrients
  • Overload of toxins
  • Free radical damages
  • Stress
  • Loss of ATP (Adenosine triphosphate) which regulates cellular energy
  • Lack of oil and water
  • So if you want to slow down ageing, McCulgan recommends following a diet made up of whole grains, vegetables, legumes, mild-sweet and non-sweet fruits. Also try the following things
  • Avoid refined sugar
  • Eat protein with every mealSwap refined sugar products with wholegrain alternatives
  • Eat plenty of fibre rich vegetables
  • Include cinnamon – lowers blood sugar levels
  • Consult the ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) scale – which identifies the anti-oxidants in foods

Inflammation is behind many degenerative diseases, so here we have some advice from Geraldine on how to reduce it:

  • Eat organic
  • Turmeric
  • Ginger
  • Green leafy vegetables
  • Fermented foods
  • Acid/Alkaline balancing
  • Omega 3 fatty acids
