Wrinkles & Sagging

The most common cause of sagging skin is aging. As you age, your skin loses the collagen and elastin, your skin's supportive connective tissue, that make it look soft, plump and youthful.


Foods for reducing wrinkles and preventing sagging include: bird's nest soup (Swallow), Chinese dates, black sesame seeds, peanuts, black soybeans, pig skin soup, walnuts, cherries, honey, tremella

Hyperpigmentation

This is a condition that causes the skin to darken. It can occur in small patches or cover large areas of the body.

Foods for Hyperpigmentation include: winter melon, luffa, white turnip, persimmon, mulberry fruit, gingko nut, coix seed, eggs, honey, royal jelly, Chinese yam, tomato, cucumber, eggplant, mung beans, black beans, Chinese cabbage, water chestnuts and peas.

Dark Eye Circles and Under Eye Bags

Pigmentation issues that cause under-eye discoloration are common among people of Asian or African descent. Age also contributes to dark circles. With age, the skin around the eye thins, exposing the tiny blood vessels that lie just below.
