FROM FACE FOOD...
FACE FOOD highlights that simple, tasty foods have the ability to flush your face with vitality, improve and change the quality and texture of your skin, reduce wrinkles and fine lines, increase firmness and combat premature aging.
While genetic factors play a major role in the way we age, so does the food that we eat. In fact our diet is one of the great anti-aging secrets to retaining or regaining beautiful skin. It’s all based on the basic principal that building and protecting collagen through the foods we eat is the foundation to healthy, youthful looking skin; as we increase collagen, wrinkles begin to fade and skin regains its elasticity.
Dealing with faces every day as I have for many years, it is easy to see when skin has been deprived of nutrients. So whenever I recommend a skin solution I keep in mind that one of the most effective ways to protect and preserve our skin at any age involves eating the right skin renewing foods.
Many of the natural foods we eat hold age-defying vitamins and minerals that are essential to give your skin radiance, while supporting, hydrating and maintaining the health of the skin. They are also the key to building collagen.
You may ask why building collagen is so important. Simply because collagen is the protein in connective tissue that keeps the skin elastic. However, the fibres in these tissues can become weak and damaged through free radicals, which impact our skin both inside and out as a result of different lifestyle elements such as junk food, sun damage, smoking, pollution, excess alcohol, and the list goes on!
However, collagen cannot be absorbed from a beauty cream as the molecules are too large to penetrate the skin’s cells. This means the most effective solution is either topically applying the right ingredients (see Face Value), or eating foods full of skin regenerating vitamins and minerals that naturally renew, stimulate and protect collagen.
For example Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that protects and stabilises collagen; Vitamin E regenerates and smoothes skin; Vitamin A builds collagen fibres and exfoliates skin; and Copper firms the skin and enhances its elasticity.
The quick and easy recipes in this book are power packed with skin building ingredients (antioxidants, vitamins and essential minerals) to support your skin to be the very best it can be, naturally building and stimulating your body’s own collagen to simultaneously increase the thickness, suppleness and firmness of the skin.
Alternatively, you can create your own recipes using the anti-aging index at the back of the book. Once you are familiar with the skin boosting foods that support your skin, you will be able to incorporate them into some of your favourite dishes.
I have written FACE FOOD as an eating plan for a lifetime of healthy skin that the whole family can benefit from.
I have always found preparing beautiful meals deeply satisfying; helping me to relax into a deeper sense of contentment and clarity. While food enhances our experience of life, since ancient times food has been a powerful source of healing.
For me cooking is not only a wonderful reminder that sharing food with those we love nurtures their health and skin from the inside out, but that the true essence of our beauty is in sharing the spirit of our humanity in all that we do.
