Tomatoes, ginger, and 15 more foods for inflammation and aging: Hollywood beautician Barbara Sturm’s list

Barbara Sturm is a beauty expert responsible for the beauty of hundreds of celebrities, from Victoria Beckham to Irina Shayk. The dermatocosmetologist constantly consults the stars and prescribes various procedures for them. And Barbara also has her own personal, world-renowned cosmetics brand.

In spite of her world fame and the proven effectiveness of her cosmetics, Dr. Sturm is convinced that the condition of our skin is greatly influenced by the inner workings of the body. More importantly, it depends on how well our body is nourished.

The Hollywood beauty expert advises sticking to interval eating, as this avoids heavy meals before going to bed and prevents oxidative stress in the digestive system. In addition, Barbara recommends everyone to add to their food as much as possible products with anti-inflammatory effect. They are rich in antioxidants and glutathione, substances that inhibit negative environmental effects and prevent premature skin changes.

Hot spices like turmeric and ginger are a good first step. They are known for their anti-inflammatory properties and are recommended even during colds.

In addition to spices, Barbara recommends increasing the amount of these products in your diet:

  • Tomatoes
  • Leafy vegetables.
  • Berries – cherries, blueberries and blackberries
  • Beans
  • Seeds and nuts
  • Peppers
  • Broccoli
  • Carrots
  • Zucchini
  • Fatty Fish
  • Olive oil
  • Spinach
  • Parsley – or better yet, its wild version, vegetable portulaca

According to numerous studies, a diet rich in glutathione and omega fatty acids in about six weeks helps noticeably improve skin conditions for dermatological diseases. The main thing is not to forget about reducing unhealthy foods in the diet. Sugar, fatty foods, alcohol and salt are not good for anyone and often reduce the effect of quality care and procedures.
