When they say that we are what we eat, they aren’t kidding. Have you seen those before and after pictures of people who get into heavy drug use? The first thing you notice is how bad their skin looks. They age 10 or 20 years in a matter of 1 to 3 years, and their skin often looks wrinkled, and it usually has a sickly tone to it.

What we put into our bodies can make us have a beautiful, glowing complexion or it can give us skin that looks years older than our actual age. If you have ever “over-indulged” on a long vacation and eaten tons of junk foods and processed foods, only to notice when you get ready to go back to work that your complexion has paid the price, then you understand what we are talking about.

You can fight off the signs of aging by feeding your body what it really needs: whole foods with real nutrition that will keep your skin looking younger, firmer, and unbelievably radiant.

Keep reading and find out which foods will give your skin longer lasting results than any Botox treatment. They cost far less and will do far more for your looks than a trip to the dermatologist!


1.  Carrots

Although many people think that carrots are only good for your eyesight, they can also go a long way towards preventing wrinkles! Loaded with vitamin C and beta-carotene, they protect your skin from the damaging UV rays of the sun. Carrots are so healing that you often see them advertised as the main ingredients in many pricy face creams and body lotions. Always choose organic carrots.


2. Avocados

Avocados are a real treat for your skin, as well as being one of nature’s true super foods. Avocados have tons of essential fatty acids that are good for your skin as they moisturize and nourish it. In fact, avocado oil is one of the best fruit oils for beautiful skin. These delicious fruits have plenty of B complex vitamins, as well as vitamin E, both of which your skin needs for elasticity. Vitamin C is vital for the skin as it helps to create new skin cells. One of the best things about avocados is that they have such thick skins (and you remove them anyway) that you can buy conventional fruits and not have to worry so much about contamination.


3. Turmeric

The active ingredient in turmeric, curcumin, is what gives this spice its golden color. It’s also what gives turmeric its anti-inflammatory reputation! Turmeric has been found in studies to be just as effective as anti-inflammatory drugs such as Advil and hydrocortisone, and without all those nasty side effects. Turmeric reduces inflammation and oxidation in the body, which can help your skin to naturally heal itself as well as giving you more beautiful skin without all the redness. Add one tablespoon of turmeric powder to one glass of warm milk and drink daily.
