A healthy diet and drinking enough water can help maintain youthful skin. The main guidelines for an active and healthy lifestyle are a healthy diet, enough physical activity and proper skin care.

What role does food play in maintaining a youthful looking skin?

Our appearance is influenced by our emotional state and the state of our internal organs, especially the stomach, the kidneys, the liver and the lungs, which process materials acquired from the outside. Foods that cause or stimulate inflammations in our body should be avoided. Unfortunately, foods with a negative impact on our bodies are present on a daily basis: coffee, processed foods, canned goods, cold cuts, products from white flour, bad fat, sugar, fried food,…

What effect does drinking water have on skin and on its youthful appearance?

If we drink enough water, the skin will be firmer. When the skin is hydrated from the inside, there will be less visible wrinkles on the face. Water also helps cell regeneration. When dehydration occurs, even if it’s not life-threatening, the skin looks withered, less firm and it loses its radiance. Moreover, when water is expelled from the body, so are the unwanted substances which can have a negative effect on your skin’s appearance

5 fruits that will help you maintain a youthful-looking skin

Apples have the effect of an anti-aging treatment

Eating apples (and their skin) helps detoxify and regenerate the organism, so they are recommended also for those who need anti-ageing treatment. Apples stimulate metabolism and diuresis, which means they help expel the unwanted substances from the body. The acid present in apples has a similar effect to peeling as it removes layers of dead skin cells and the impurities in the pores, which makes the skin smoother and firmer.

Pomegranates nourish the skin

The antioxidants in pomegranate skin and juice are four times stronger than the ones present in red wine or green tea. Moreover, pomegranates are rich in vitamins A, C, and E, potassium, folic acid and iron. Thanks to the numerous nutrients the pomegranate is often used in hair and skincare products.

Tomatoes defend the skin from UV rays

Tomatoes are rich in lycopene, which works as an internal photoprotection, increasing the resistance to sun rays. Tomatoes are also rich in vitamins (A, B1, B2, B5, C, and E) and minerals (potassium, manganese, iron and copper), which protect and nourish the body and the skin.

Olive oil is the best for regeneration

Olive oil is excellent as it renews the skin, smooths wrinkles and helps fight stretch marks and scars. With its unique formula, it protects the skin, the lips, the nails and the hair. It has an ideal content ratio of fatty acids omega 3, 6 and 9 and is rich in polyphenol and vitamins A and E.

Grapes are the best antioxidant

Grapes and grape seeds are rich in vitamins, minerals, fruit acids and polyphenol, which is a highly effective antioxidant that protects the skin from aging. We can say that grapes have the effect of an anti-aging treatment as they maintain healthy and youthful-looking skin.

What else can we do to keep our skin healthy?

For wholesome body care and an aromatic experience to pamper the senses, we recommend the “Firming body treatment” or wine therapy. The treatment starts with a grape peeling which removes dead skin cells, thus refreshing and rejuvenating the skin. After a shower the treatment proceeds with a body massage with grape seed oil: it stimulates regeneration, rejuvenates the skin, helps maintain its natural hydration levels and a good epidermis structure, protects the skin from aging and the stressful effects from the environment. After the treatment, the skin is soft, smooth, firm and silky to the touch.

For additional home care, we recommend the use of the Wine therapy body lotion or the Wine therapy facial cream, which is available in two options: hydrating or nourishing.
