A diet which includes vitamin C is essential. Vitamin C fights free radicals that break down collagen, leading to fine lines. Olive oil has anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
Hemp seed and hemp seed oil are rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids that include omega 3 and 6. Hemp seed oil products are high in protein and have the complete range of amino acids. Minerals include calcium, magnesium, iron and zine. Hemp seed products are also rich in vitamins including the B vitamins, Folate and vitamin D3, one of the only known plant food sources of this important vitamin.
Selenium is also important in the diet; it is a trace mineral that your body uses to make proteins, known as antioxidant enzymes, that helps to prevent cell damage.
Foods that cause inflammation, like refined sugar, white flour, and excessive use of dairy products, can readily create inflammation in the body that contributes to the aging process.
These foods tend to make the body “heavier” in feel and appearance because the internal organs are actually suffering from inflammation.

Replacing a sugary diet, fried and fatty foods, even if you are not overweight, with one that is high in natural products can keep the whole body looking tighter and younger.
Lastly the skin needs a certain amount of hydration, collagen, elastin and oxygen in order to look youthful and healthy. The combination of diet and good skin care will stand you well for the future.
