*Say NO to sweet foods .
Yeah ,even dark chocolate is on the list ;it ‘s an aquiantance of family Sweets.I know it’s a tough job for us ,we women, as we love sugary and sweet foods .
But time comes to change our eating habits to protect our skin from sun damage .Besides it’s not charming at all to end up with a denture;no woman wants that,and no husnand expects that.
Also ” It turns out that sweet stuff can put your skin on the fast track to looking older. A diet high in sugar triggers an age-accelerating process in our bodies known as glycation. Glycation causes collagen breakdown and loss of skin elasticity, plus it increases the likelihood of wrinkling and agging, and can increase the effects of sun damage”. Beauty Exclusives .
*Say YES to bitter foods.
According to traditional Chinese medical science, bitter vegetables such as sowthistles and bitter gourds can help relieve summer heat, eliminate fatigue, and harmonize the spleens and stomach.
Bitter gourds, in particular, can be served as medicine. These gourds are widely believed to improve blood circulation, prevent stasis gastroenteritis and dysentery.
*Broccoli is your best sunscreen.
Hate it or love it,you have to start eating broccoli to protect your skin from sun damage because ,researchers found the compound sulforaphane, which is derived from broccoli sprouts, reduces the skin redness and inflammation caused by exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation.
It turns out that the broccoli extract did not physically absorb the UV rays, but it appeared to work at the cellular level to prevent erythema. They say sulforaphane induces the formation of protective proteins in the skin and protects the skin from sun damage for several days.
The word umbrella comes from the latin word umbra, meaning shade or shadow ,and it’s your last option left if you fail to stick to the the other ones ,I mean replacing sweet food with bitter one, besides eating broccoli.
Carry with you a Chinese umbrella to protect your skin from the sun’s rays.Apart from being beautiful and glamorous ,Chinese umbrellas give shade from the sun.
