When it comes to the topic on snacking, most people’s concerns are either about their skin or about their weight, but rarely does anyone question if there is a link between eating junk and premature aging. While the scientific studies done in this field are not widely circulated or usually mentioned, there appears to be some link between these two points.
Do you know that tofu is not only a high source of protein, but it also contains phytoestrogens that have multiple benefits for our skin? For one, phytoestrogens increase our skin’s production of collagen as well as boost hyaluronic acid production. Second, phytoestrogens also increase the activity of fibroblasts: collagen-making cells that also pump out elastin, the substance that gives skin elasticity. And finally, phytoestrogens are also potent antioxidants that neutralize toxic free radicals as well as promote healing in order to slow premature aging. So keen to feed on some tofu now? Well, here’s a simple Japanese tasty dish that is easy to whip out under 5 minutes.
I need to snack really often, almost like every two hours or so. Sometimes it’s hunger but most of the time, it’s just a craving for stuff in my mouth. I used to munch on junk food, such as Kit Kat, potato chips, prawn crackers, salted prunes and sweets. However, since going through my first detox, I realized the need to eliminate these unhealthy snacks. In fact, I stopped snacking for a period of time and it was literally, just to save my skin because my poor snacking habit was contributing to my breakouts then! Right now, I’m back to snacking again but this time, I’ve picked up some healthier alternatives that contain less sugar and salt content to keep my mouth and skin happy.
A thick lock of hair is usually a sign of youth and health on first impressions. Without a head full of thick hair, a person can sometimes look older than they really are. Sometimes it depends on your hair type as well, because if your hair strands are coarser, it will generally make your hair look thicker. I myself have very fine hair, and if I don’t take care of it, they can sometimes look limp and make me look really dull. Taking care of your hair doesn’t just mean making sure you are using the right shampoo or applying the right products; what you eat or don’t eat will affect the condition of your hair too.
