Eat Probiotic Rich Foods
By adding probiotics to your daily diet, such as kimchi, you’re balancing your gut flora and helping your body stay healthy to fight inflammation which causes early signs of aging.
Why Gut Flora?
It is essential for your gut flora to be balanced. The bacteria in your body create toxins which can lead to overgrowth of yeast in the gastrointestinal tract. The overgrown yeast is released into the blood stream causing inflammation throughout your body. The inflammation results in signs of aging including wrinkles and fine lines. Causes of gut flora imbalance include eating sugar and drinking alcohol.
“Fermented foods have excellent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties,” says Dr. Craig Kraffert, MD, a board-certified dermatologist.

Protect Your Skin Every Single Day
If you’re exposed to the sun at a young age without the ‘right amount’ of SPF protection, over time your skin can suffer with signs of aging including wrinkles and age spots. The most important step in skincare is applying sunscreen after moisturizing and before applying make-up. Get into the habit of wearing sunscreen with broad spectrum every single day, just like brushing your teeth. Even if you have SPF in your make-up, apply sunscreen with broad spectrum protection.
