Anti-ageing secrets from Italy

Benefits of the Mediterranean diet

Want to look younger, feel happier and live longer? Adopt some habits of the healthiest people on earth.

Eat well
Italians live on a Mediterranean diet that includes fruits, vegetables, grains, legumes and beans, nuts, seeds and lean proteins. Wine is also included in day-to-day diets, and usually enjoyed in the company of others – consequently maximising social interaction.

There is also an emphasis placed on fresh, local produce and of course, tomatoes, which are a rich source of antioxidants, and olive oil, which is packed with healthy fats and good cholesterol.

Be happy
The Italians surround themselves in the company of their rich network of family and friends. Close bonding and physical affection are important in this culture, contributing to happiness and a sense of social connection.

Studies show that receiving gestures and signs of affections can do wonders for your happiness levels, and the Italians are perhaps the worlds best cheek-kissers and caressers!

Look good
In Italy, olive oil is not only consumed in vast amounts, but it’s also used on the skin. Traditionally, many Italian women would use a part lemon juice, part olive oil mixture to apply to the skin to soften, smooth and brighten the complexion.
