Top 12 Foods that Fight Wrinkles and Premature Aging
The old adage you’ve heard a million times, “you are what you eat,” is absolutely true when talking about your skin. Beautiful skin is dependent on an abundant supply of essential nutrients. When you improve your diet, you can vastly improve the look of your skin.
Let’s face it; no one wants to get age spots, wrinkles, dark spots, circles under their eyes, and that infamous turkey chin before their time. Well, beautiful skin is as easy as eating delicious foods every day. How much easier can it get?
Keep reading for the top 12 foods you can easily add to your diet that will give you super beautiful skin that fights aging and wrinkles as easy as pie (Although you won’t find pie on this list, sorry!)
1. Free Range Eggs
Eggs are a rich source of protein and contain 9 essential amino acids, along with vitamin D, all of which are perfect for your skin. If you have heard that eggs raise your blood cholesterol levels, you can forget about that old myth, as it has no basis in fact. Always eat free range, organic eggs, as these contain the most vitamins and protein that will help improve your skin tone.
Although blueberries and raspberries take the number one and number two spots on the pretty face leaderboard, all berries are good for your skin. These flavorful little jewels are loaded with vitamins, polyphenols, flavonoids, prebiotics and, best of all, tons of antioxidants. Antioxidants are what fight free radicals, which are the little stinkers that cause damage to your skin and cause wrinkles. Berries promote cell regeneration so that you get beautiful new skin cells regularly.
So much more than just a yummy ingredient in guacamole, tomatoes are full of vitamin C, which your body uses to build collagen. Collagen is like the glue that holds your skin cells together, so it will look more plump and firm. Tomatoes are also loaded with lycopene, a compound that protects your skin from UV damage from the sun. They also improve your blood circulation. Eating tomatoes regularly for six weeks will give you a noticeable glow to your skin due to the extra blood circulation.
