Forget plastic surgery. All you have to do is eat your way to great-looking skin.
Can you look younger by stuffing your face? Absolutely! The healthier the foods you consume are, the better your skin
looks. No vitamin C and you’ll have no collagen.
Too little vitamin A or essential fats and you’ll
have dry, rough skin, and too little zinc is a recipe for greasy skin and stretch marks.
So forget plastic surgery.
For glowing, gorgeous, youthful skin, it makes sense to eat your way to fewer wrinkles, pimples, age spots and other beauty
Resurfacing your skin
It’s no accident
that vitamin A is the number one vitamin used topically to improve the texture and appearance of ageing skin.
A is a powerful agent for increasing cell turnover, so that skin looks more youthful.
This skin vitamin comes
in two forms: retinol, the animal form found in meat, fish, eggs and dairy products; and beta-carotene, found in red, yellow
and orange fruits and vegetables.
Apricots, carrots, sweet potatoes and pumpkin are all good sources of beta-carotene.
Sydney-based naturopath Penelope Sach, author of Natural Woman (Penguin), advises: “Include a raw carrot
juice daily for the natural vitamin A content, which helps to regenerate skin cells. “
to tighten and tone
Thanks to New York Times bestselling author Dr Nicholas Perricone, we now
know that good skin is a very fishy business.
Fish is not only a good source of the antioxidant co-enzyme Q10
(CoQ10), but an outstanding source of high-quality protein that helps with cellular repair and essential fatty acids (EFAs),
which are responsible for healthy cell membranes, he says.
EFAs hold water, so the stronger they are, the plumper
and younger your skin looks.
Fish also contains a powerful antioxidant compound called dimethylaminoethanol or
“This chemical stimulates nerve function and the muscles to contract and tighten under the skin,”
says Dr Perricone in The Perricone Prescription (HarperCollins).
“It is a magic bullet for great skin tone,
keeping your face firm and contoured.”
Sach says: “For radiant skin, eat cold-water fish such as salmon,
mackerel or tuna, three times a week.”
Other good face firmers are walnuts and flaxseed oil, soya oil, pumpkin
seeds and sunflower seeds.
Flaxseed oil may also be useful in the treatment of skin conditions such as eczema.
Natural wrinkle fighters
Perhaps your skin’s biggest
enemies are free radicals, produced by UV rays as well as pollution, stress and even breathing.
lead to skin inflammation, as well as the degradation of collagen, the support structure for your skin, according to Leslie
Baumann, of the dermatology department at the University of Miami in Florida.
But nature has designed some pretty
clever foods that, if eaten regularly, act as natural wrinkle fighters.
Start with apricots and tomatoes, rich
in lycopene, nature’s sunscreen.
For maximum anti-ageing, add a daily bowlful of berries, a glass of red
wine or a freshly brewed pot of tea.
In a 2004 study by the veterinary science faculty at the University of Sydney,
a potent free-radical scavenger called pycnogenol was found to reduce the amount of inflammatory sunburn in mice.
Pycnogenol can be found in grape seed, grape skin, cranberry, blackcurrant, green tea, black tea, blueberry, blackberry,
strawberry, black cherry, red wine and red cabbage.
Still want a stronger defence against free radicals and the
Here’s a potent free radical-busting combination: vitamin C, vitamin E, glutathione
A 2002 German study published in the Journal Of Pharmacological And Biophysiological Research found
that, together, these antioxidants could reduce inflammation caused by UV rays.
You’ll find vitamin E in
vegetable oils, nuts and green leafy vegetables, and vitamin C in leafy citrus fruit, berries and green leafy vegetables.
Asparagus is high in glutathione and CoQ10 is found in seafood, spinach and nuts.
foods are prunes, plums, capsicum, beetroot, parsley, figs, raisins and legumes such as red kidney beans.
don’t forget herbs and spices, an often neglected way to boost antioxidants in the body.
spices contain several natural water-soluble phenolic acids and flavonoids that can protect the body against oxidative stress
and inflammation,” says Dr Michael Fenech, principal research scientist on the CSIRO’s Genome Health and Nutrigenomics
Project in Adelaide.
Add cinnamon to your cappuccino, drink tea made of fresh mint or ginger, roast lamb with
herbs such as rosemary, sage and thyme, and indulge in turmeric-rich curries.
Try Gourmet Garden’s herb
tubes if you can’t buy fresh.
Out, damn spot
There are two types of spots that detract from youthful
skin: age spots and pimples.
And Australasian soils are notoriously short of a trace element called selenium.
This deficiency, along with sun exposure and sugar in the diet, is believed to be a factor in age spots, says
Erica Angyal, an Australian nutritionist now based in Tokyo and author of Gorgeous Skin In 30 Days (Lothian Books).
To stop spots, you should not only wear an SPF15+, but eat selenium-rich foods, including garlic, brazil nuts, macadamia
nuts and sesame seeds.
A study published in 2003 in the British Journal Of Dermatology also showed that skin was
less likely to suffer oxidative damage when selenium levels were high.
Eating garlic, which also contains vitamin
C and sulfur, can help banish blemishes.
Zinc is another natural substance that is necessary for good skin. Rich
sources of zinc are oysters, ginger root, lamb, pecan nuts and brazil nuts.
Extra-virgin olive oil has a high concentration of a monounsaturated fatty acid called oleic
acid, one of the most powerful anti-inflammatory foods in existence, says Dr Perricone.
“Oleic acid is a
member of the omega 9 family,” he says. “It can make the difference between a complexion that resembles a piece
of old shoe leather and one that looks and feels like a rose petal.”
skin, aim to eat about 20g – or two tablespoons – of good fats a day, including olive oil.
Avocados contain oleic acid, as well as the antioxidants vitamin C and E.
Try having some on toast with
lycopene-rich tomatoes, accompanied by a cup of green tea, for a super skin-boosting meal.
For baby-soft skin,
avoid dehydrating drinks too, like alcohol and caffeine.
“Try Campari and soda during summer, as this is
less dehydrating than wine and champagne,” says Sach. Of course, cool, filtered water is great too.
Debloat and depuff
Your capillaries are the pipelines for your skin cells, says
“When they are weak, or not working efficiently, your skin cells don’t receive all the oxygen
and nutrients they need.”
This leads to poor elimination and sallow, puffy, prematurely aged or dull skin.
Bioflavonoids in citrus fruits can help to protect your capillaries, as well as support collagen production. So,
next time you’re at a juice bar, mix pink grapefruit, orange or lemon into your fruit or vegie blend

Sun Protection Ultraviolet radiation is the major cause of skin cancer, including melanoma. It is important
for everyone to be aware of its damaging effects and take measures to avoid overexposure.
Although many people enjoy
the appearance of tanned skin and think it looks "healthy," tanned skin is damaged skin. The ultraviolet radiation
in sunlight penetrates the deepest layers of the skin where it harms the cells. The body responds by making more pigment (melanin)
to try to protect itself, but the damage has already happened and may be permanent. The more exposure you have to the sun,
the more likely you are to develop skin problems later in life.
The damaging part of sunlight
is called ultraviolet radiation, or UV rays. It is categorized into three types:
- UVC rays
(wavelengths = 200 nm to 290 nm) are the shortest and most powerful of the UV rays. UVC is
the most likely to cause cancer if it reaches skin. Fortunately, most of it is absorbed by the ozone layer in our atmosphere.
However, there is concern that a thinning of the ozone layer may be causing more UVC to reach the earth's surface.
rays (wavelengths = 290 nm to 320 nm) are less damaging than UVC, but more of it penetrates to the earth's surface.
It is the most common cause of sunburn and skin cancer. UVB is particularly strong at the equator, at high elevations, and
during the summer.
- UVA rays (wavelengths = 320 nm to 400 nm)
are the least powerful of the UV rays, but they are present all year and can penetrate
windows and clouds.
The first and more effective way to avoid sun damage is
to stay out of tthe sun as much as possible.
If you cannot avoid being exposed to sunlight,
there are five basic defenses that you should keep in mind when you go outdoors:
peak hours of sunlight
Avoid Peak Hours of Sunlight (UV Index)
In general, UV rays are the greatest between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.
It is best to avoid the outdoors during these hours without protection, particularly during summer, in tropical regions, or
at altitude. During this time, you should pay close attention to the appropriate use of sunscreen, clothing, sunglasses, and
You can obtain an accurate measure of the amount of UV rays in your area by looking
up the Ultraviolet (UV) Index. The UV Index is like a weather forecast. It provides a
report on the amount of damaging UV rays that are expected to affect a region on a particular day. The UV Index changes day
to day according to time of year, cloud cover, atmospheric ozone, and other factors.
The following table is a breakdown
of the UV Index. A high UV Index number means that you are at greater risk of being exposed to ultraviolet radiation. You
should take special care to avoid outdoor exposure to sunlight when the UV Index is moderate or greater.
- 0 to 2
- 3 to 4 = Low
- 5 to 6 = Moderate
- 7 to 9 = High
or more = Very high
The UV Index can be found on our Website or in local
papers, usually in the weather section.
There are several factors to consider when selecting the right
sunscreen. (See the Sunscreens handout for more information.)
actor (SPF) - Sunscreens are rated by the amount of protection they provide from UVB, measured as the "sun
protection factor" or SPF. Sunscreens with higher SPF provide greater protection from the sun. It is best to use sunscreens
that offer a minimum SPF of 15.
Broad-spectrum sunscreens - It is best to use a sunscreen that can
protect you from both UVA and UVB rays. These are called "broad-spectrum" sunscreens.
Most of the original sunscreens blocked only UVB, but increased awareness of the damage caused by UVA has lead to the
development of ingredients that protect against UVA too. Broad-spectrum sunscreens combine ingredients to provide a product
with greater protection.
Common sunscreen ingredients that provide protection
from UVB rays:
- PABA (para-aminobenzoic
- Padimate O and Padimate A (Octyl Dimethyl PABA)
sunscreen ingredients that provide protection from UVA rays:
- Avobenzone (Parsol 1789)
(oxybenzone, dioxybenzone, sulisobenzone)
Sunblocks - "Physical"
sunscreen ingredients lie on top of the skin and work by reflecting or scattering UV radiation. They are particularly useful
for people who are sensitive to the ingredients found in other sunscreens. Sunblocks often contain one or more of these ingredients:
- Titanium dioxide
- Iron oxide
Although past formulations
were unsightly (often leaving a white film on the skin), newer "microfine" formulations are invisible after being
applied. Microfine titanium dioxide is effective at protecting from both UVA and UVB rays.
- Sunscreens are classified as "water-resistant" if they maintain their protection after two 20-minute
immersions in water. They are classified as "waterproof" if they maintain their protection after four 20-minute
immersions. You should seek a water-resistant or waterproof sunscreen if you will be participating in water sports, such as
swimming or water skiing, or will be actively sweating.
However, independent testing has shown many products do not
perform well in the real world. So it remains a good idea to apply sunscreen every time you leave the water, or frequently
if you are actively sweating.
Using a Sunscreen
Sunscreen should be applied
evenly and liberally on all sun-exposed skin within 30 minutes before going outside to give sunscreen time to take effect.
(Sunblocks are effective immediately after being applied.) Sunscreens should be reapplied every two hours or following swimming
or sweating. Apply sunscreen generously and reapply frequently at least every two hours.
The chemicals may lose
effectiveness over time, so it is important to throw away sunscreen that is past its expiration date
or is over two years old.
No sunscreen is 100% effective; take additional measures to avoid the
damaging effects of the sun's rays.
Clothing can provide excellent
protection from the sun. However, not all clothing is protective. A thin, wet, white t-shirt will provide almost no protection
from UV rays. When selecting clothes for sun protection, consider the following:
- Cover your head, shoulders, arms,
legs, and feet.
- Use a hat that is broad-brimmed (brim should be at least four
- Wear fabrics that are thicker or with a tight weave; these allow less
sunlight to penetrate the skin.
- Wear darker-colored clothes that absorb more UV rays.
- Wear clothing
made from nylon or Dacron because it is more protective than cotton.
- Avoid remaining
in wet clothes because wet fabric may allow more UV rays to penetrate the skin.
clothing with chemical absorbers to increase their protectiveness.
- Some clothing
comes with a UPF rating that stands for "Ultraviolet Protection Factor." This measures the ability of the fabric
to block UV radiation from penetrating to the skin. A fabric with a UPF 15 allows only 1/15th (6.66%) of the UV radiation
to penetrate your skin as compared to uncovered skin.
Garments fall into 3 categories:
protection: UPF = 15 to 24
- Very good protection: UPF = 25 to 39
protection: UPF = 40 to 50+
Choose clothing with a UPF rating of at least 15. Keep in mind that the UPF of a
garment will decrease over time as the fabric wears.
Overexposure to sunlight can cause cataracts
and macular degeneration, a major cause of blindness. Sunglasses can provide protection. However, not all sunglasses are of
value. A darker lens itself does not guarantee protection. Look at the label to ensure that the glasses provide UV protection.
Sunglasses should be large enough to shield your eyes from many angles. Look for sunglasses that are described as blocking
99% or 100% of UVA and UVB. The glasses may also be described as providing UV absorption up to 400 nm.
possible, remain in the shade when outdoors. Keep in mind that shade does not provide full protection from the sun because
UV rays can bounce off reflective surfaces, such as sand, snow, water, concrete, or even porch decks. In addition, some fabrics
used as shade devices, such as parasols or umbrellas, may not provide sufficient protection. If you seek shade under a cloth,
look for a fabric that is thick, tightly woven, and dark-colored.
Clear window glass provides protection from UVC and
UVB, but not UVA rays. If you are frequently exposed to sunlight while driving, the plastic interleaf of your windshield (which
prevents it from shattering) can help block the light, but side windows have no such protection. Non-drivers can make use
of additional window shade devices. Drivers in some states may be able to use darkly-tinted glass in the side windows, but
this is illegal in some states.
- Avoid the sun when its
UV rays are strongest, between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.
- Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 15 or greater.
Apply it 30 minutes prior to being exposed to the sun and reapply every two hours. Consider using a water-resistant sunscreen
if you will be active (sweating) or in the water.
- Use a sunblock on your lips.
- Wear a broad-brimmed hat
- Wear sunglasses.
- Wear tightly woven, dark clothing to
cover your arms, legs, and feet.
- Stay in the shade when possible.

- Avoid sunbathing.
