Secret of Anti-aging:anti-aging foods

Retinol is a chemical derivative of Vitamin A that assists the body in developing and maintaining the health of skin, mucous membranes and hair. Retinol is present in foods such as carrots, sweet potatoes, mangoes, raw spinach, apricots, cantaloupes, papayas, raw tomatoes, bell peppers, oranges, broccoli etc. Use vegetables that are raw and fresh to achieve the best results for the retinol anti-aging home remedies.

To understand anti-aging, understand that when a cell replaces itself it has three options that it can replace itself with:

1. A cell may replace itself with a weaker cell each time. A cell will do this if it hasn't had the right nutritional foods available to it. This process is called degeneration.

2. A cell can replace itself with the same strength cell. This means the body doesn't improve. That is, you have a chronic condition.

3. The cell is capable of replacing itself with a stronger and better cell. This will happen only if the cell has an abundance of energy and the right raw materials. This process is called regeneration. It is anti-aging.

Facial Mask

When preparing retinol rich foods for consumption steam them mesh it in blender. You can also use retinol rich foods to create a homemade facial mask. Retinol molecules penetrate the epidermis and help regenerate deeper layers of skin by stimulating the generation of elastin and collagen to give the skin a smoother appearance, according to Archives of Dermatology. A do-it-yourself facial mask containing a retinol rich food such as carrots can be an easy and convenient natural home remedy to smooth out wrinkles on the face and neck.
