5 Anti-Aging Foods For Your Skin

Anti-agingMany treatments for the skin focus on the outside, but you can also improve your skin from the inside out. Some foods have a variety of anti-aging nutrients, so you’ll want to add them to your diet.

These five foods are good for your overall health and will also help keep your skin looking its best:

Blueberries

Blueberries pack a lot of nutritional value and are low in saturated fat, sodium, and cholesterol. They have lots of vitamin C, which helps make collagen and fight free radicals, molecules that harm skin cells and cause wrinkles.

They’re very versatile and can be cooked with other foods, eaten raw, or dried and added to tea.

Salmon

This fish is high in omega-3 fatty acids. They help keep the top outer layer of the skin strong so it has more protection against toxins and pollutants. Omega-3s also help keep your skin look softer and stay more wrinkle-free.

Salmon also contains astaxanthin, which helps make your skin more elastic.

Cucumbers

This crunchy food is high in water content and also contains lots of vitamin C and caffeic acid, two important antioxidants. Caffeic acid also help protect your skin cells from UV radiation.

Even the peel is packed with anti-aging benefits for your skin. It contains silica, which helps reduce wrinkles and increase collagen.

Spinach

Spinach contains antioxidants that help protect your skin against sun damage. It’s packed with beta-carotene and lutein, which help make your skin more elastic and less likely to sag.

Spinach also has high levels of linoleic acid, an omega-6 fatty acid that’s thought to help keep your skin looking youthful.

Brazil nuts

These nuts have high levels of selenium, a nutrient that studies have found to have a wide variety of anti-aging benefits. It’s thought to help protect your skin against sun damage, age spots, and skin cancer.

Brazil nuts also contain vitamin E, an antioxidant that helps condition your skin.
