Part 5 Q: How big a role does food play in fighting ageing?
Food plays a huge role for a whole number of reasons.
The food we eat contains the basic building blocks that make the hormones that nourish our skin.
The estrogen that a woman needs to keep her skin looking youthful comes from the good fats in the food that she eats.
Antioxidants are also vital. The skin ages because of free radical damage from environmental pollutants and ultra violet radiation from the sun.
Foods that contains antioxidants mop up those free radicals so they can’t damage the skin.
