Waging war against wrinkles? Don’t admit defeat, it’s time to pull together your resources and strategize a plan of attack. According to Nicholas V. Perricone, MD, “Wrinkled, sagging skin is not the inevitable result of growing older. It is a disease and you can fight it.”
Dr. Perricone addresses the signs of aging in a three tiered approach with an anti-inflammatory diet, nutritional supplements, and topical anti-oxidants. All elements are designed to work synergistically promoting optimum health for your skin, body and mind.
An anti-inflammatory diet consists of high-quality protein, like that found in poultry, fish, shellfish and tofu, low-glycemic carbohydrates such as colorful fresh fruits and vegetables and whole grains like beans, lentils, legumes and old-fashioned oatmeal. Additionally, healthy fats especially those found in salmon, halibut, herring, nuts, seeds, and olive oil are essential to the diet. It’s also crucial to keep the body hydrated by drinking 8-10 glasses of water a day and beverages that are high in antioxidants such as green tea.
Nutritional supplements provide a broad spectrum of vitamins and minerals that are essential to help your skin look its best and should be a staple in every woman’s anti-aging regimen. Dr. Perricone carries his own range of supplements that enhance the benefits of his topical products for maximum results.
The last weapon in Perricone’s anti-aging arsenal is topical treatments. Perricone has a barrage of products that address every concern. Some of his most touted products include:
