Skin aging is an inevitable natural phenomenon. However, it is possible to delay it thanks to appropriate skin care, but also by monitoring its diet.
In addition to the many factors linked to the external environment such as the sun, atmospheric pollution or even tobacco, certain foods are in fact partly responsible for the premature aging of the skin.
Among them, processed food products, which contain more than five additives (colors, flavors, preservatives, thickeners, flavor enhancers, etc.), dietitian Tamara Prountseva told the Russian weekly Argoumenty i Fakty.
