Ever wondered what the trick is to looking younger than your age?
Forget the expensive lotions and potions: one of the easiest (and cheapest) ways to turn back to clock is to focus on your diet and exercise routine.
Physical activity produces a flood of feel-good hormones called endorphins. These suppress the effects of inflammatory hormones, helping your skin to look younger and smoother.
Dopamine levels can also be increased through exercise, helping to increase blood flow and make your complexion look more luminous.
Fruits and vegetables – especially those that are dark in colour – are loaded with antioxidants that may help protect your cells from premature ageing.
Blueberries have more antioxidants than any other food; three times more than red wine and green tea. Other potent antioxidant-rich foods include blackberries, strawberries, raspberries, kale, broccoli and spinach.
