Even when your crows feet are a little more pronounced and you have a couple of new fine lines popping up, I personally think natural beauty is the most beautiful of all and our lines tell a story. With that said, even at 90 years old I want to look like the healthiest, most radiant version of myself. So living a healthy lifestyle and having a good ageless beauty skincare regimen is the way to go-especially if tons of botox and going under any type of knife is not your thing.
As we age, our bodies gradually begin to slow down- both in energy and in skin cell reproduction. This can be contributed to a breakdown in our mitochondria. The mitochondria is responsible for the energy required to fuel skin cell regeneration- creating those brand new, youthful looking baby cells. The mitochondria is broken down due to oxidative stress, and the best way to combat and increase mitochondria and its energy-giving qualities is through antioxidants. There are certain foods you can eat that can help with this tremendously.
