Dr. Oz says they used their years of experience, along with vast research, to come up with a foolproof anti-aging plan just for you! Plus, check out the three new foods that will add years to your life!
Dr Oz: Hydroquinone Treats Blotchy Skin
Dr. Oz’s expert panel of dermatologists say the three biggest causes of premature aging include firmness, discoloration, and wrinkles so they came up with an anti-aging trifecta that you can find right at your local drugstore.
When you begin to see discoloration in the form of blotchy areas on your forehead, cheek, or chin Dr. Jeanine Downie recommends a product called Hydroquinone (2%), which works by blocking the hormones that cause discoloration.
Dr Oz: Retinol Cream for Wrinkles
Wrinkles on the face are possibly the most common aging complaint from women, so Dr. Howard Sobel recommends using Retinol with Soy to combat fine lines. The key is to apply the Retinol at night and Soy cream in the morning. Dr. Sobel says to use your ring finger and gently apply a pea-sized amount to your forehead, cheeks, and chin
Dr Oz: How Multi-Peptides Tighten Skin
The last big sign of premature aging is a loss of firmness in certain areas of the face. Dr. Lori Brightman explains the first place where a lack of firmness will be noticeable is in the lower area of the face and in the upper eyelids. She recommends using Multi-Peptides to restore firmness because they contain amino acids that send messages telling the skin to make more collagen, which will then improve firmness.
Dr Oz: Three New Anti-Aging Foods
Not only can you apply products to your skin as a way to fight aging, but Dietitian Kristin Kirkpatrick of the Cleveland Clinic says there are also new anti-aging foods you can add to your diet and add years to your life.
Shichimi Togarashi is a Japanese spice powder that has been shown to improve the health of your heart. It can be found in the spice aisle of your grocery store, at an Asian Market, or online.
Teff is the tiniest grain in the world, but Kristin says it is the best new food to help your intestines says young and healthy. Teff is a gluten-free grain that is packed with Vitamin C and Calcium, but the best part is that 40% of the grain is a resistant starch, which is good for the intestinal tract. Can be found at health food stores or online.
The last new anti-aging food helps to power the brain, so you definitely want to add this one to your next shopping list! Beluga Lentils are rich in black color, which is why they are healthier than other lentils, especially for the brain.
