Daily, we are bombarded with anti-aging ads on the TV, magazines and even online. And, tons of products are being paraded as the best anti aging products through these ads. What many people do not know is that some foods are proven to work miracle in renewing our skin and youthful look.

The truth is, what you eat can help draw you closer to younger-looking look and rejuvenated skin more than any anti-aging product. It doesn’t mean there is one magic food that can whisk away wrinkles and fine lines. But, by consuming these anti aging foods, especially in their complete organic forms, you will experience significant change on your skin because of their rejuvenating benefits.

#1: Avocados

Avocados are in the top list of foods that help to intercept aging. These oval-shaped rich fruits are packed with healthy fat known as monounsaturated fat, which in turn aids in hydration of the skin. According to a medical expert at WebMD, “the healthy fat contained in avocados can aid in the absorption of nutrients and vitamins that your skin requires to stay rejuvenated and youthful.”
So, try using avocado in place of high-fat salad dressings. You will enjoy both rich nutrients and natural flavor by replacing unhealthy fats with avocados. The best part is that avocado makes you feel fuller easily. Other sources of healthy fats include walnuts, olive oil, and macadamia nut oil.

#2: Oats

According to Debra Jaliman, a dermatologist in New York, complex carbohydrates such as oats are rich and great breakfasts because they are low glycemic. Debra who is also an author of an insightful book, Skin Rules, added that oats and other low-glycemic foods do not spike the blood sugar level, unlike rice, pasta, breads and other refined carbohydrates.

That’s not all; oats also offer anti-aging benefits by preventing skin cells damage through their natural plant chemical content. They also soothe skin irritation and ultimately help in intercepting early signs of aging.

#3: Brussels Sprouts

Brussels sprouts are rich in vitamin A and C – skin–friendly vitamins. They are also excellent source of folate. The vitamin C contained in these foods promotes collage production. Folate and vitamin A are natural sun protectors, but it doesn’t mean you should abandon the regular sun protection measures.

If the boiled Brussels sprouts irritate you, you should drizzle oil on and roast instead. This way, you will find it tastier and more delectable. Other foods and vegetables in this category that can help renew your youthful skin include collard greens, kale, cauliflower, and broccoli.

#4: Salmon

One of the richest sources of omega-3 fats is salmon. According to certain studies, omega-3 fats from fishes such as salmon will not just help rejuvenate your skin but can also prevent the growth and spread of skin cancer cells.
To get the full benefits from Salmon and other rich sources of omega-3, you should target not less than two 3-ounce servings weekly. Eat it with whole grain side dishes such as barley salad or brown rice.

Other foods that offer anti-aging benefits include sardines, fortified milk, eggs, grapes and oranges.

Fitness Tips For Farm Girls

Look, I’m not here to judge you. Working out can be a total chore if you’re not the kind of person who naturally loves running five miles after a hard day’s work on the farm. When you come from a farming background, you usually do a fair amount of physical work while you go about your daily life. And it can be hard to adapt to structured workouts even when you want to increase your fitness level, but don’t worry. There are ways to make it manageable.

Find Your Distraction

When you’re not naturally a fan of working out, it can help to distract yourself from the process of exercising. Watch a TV show on the treadmill, do Pilates while catching up on your favorite podcast, or lose yourself in an audiobook during a long hike. Your workout will be over before you know it!

Short Or Easy?

Choose between getting your workouts finished and out of the way quickly, or taking it easier over a longer period of time. Twenty minutes of high intensity exercise and an hour of leisurely cardio on the elliptical are both valid forms of exercise, so just figure out which style suits you better.

Make It Fun

Do a group Zumba class with friends and go for wine afterwards, or try out a couples yoga routine on YouTube for a giggly workout with your significant other. Making your workout fun will give you more motivation to stick with it, so get creative!

Figure Out The Right Time

Don’t try to get up for a 5 a.m. workout if you’re not a morning person. Equally, don’t wait until the evening to exercise if you know you’re exhausted by the end of the day. Look at your schedule, think about when you personally have more energy, and work out then – not when anyone else says you should.

Get Cute Gym Clothes

Looking good makes you feel good, so spend a little cash getting yourself a gym outfit that you’ll want to put on. Who cares if it’s shallow? If a sleek workout selfie is your motivation, then embrace it. You can even reward yourself with new pieces once you’re a regular exerciser!

Don’t Beat Yourself Up

Be kind to yourself when you’re trying to make exercise a part of your routine. Getting out of breath, messing up a workout, and skipping gym sessions are part of the process, so just commit to improving over time rather than focusing on one bad workout.

Working out doesn’t have to be your favorite thing in the world. Just committing to your physical health and spending time getting your blood moving is enough. These fitness tips will help you get to grips with exercising regularly – even if you’d rather be lying in bed watching Netflix the whole time!
