Part of aging gracefully is loving the skin you’re in and what better way to show love than with the foods you eat. Skip the expensive beauty products and make a trip to the grocery store for these five anti-aging foods:
Blueberries: Just one serving delivers more antioxidants than any other fruit or vegetable out there. Antioxidants help protect our skin from sun damage while also preventing wrinkles in the process.
Cod fish: We all know how great fish is for our health, but in addition to having omega-3 fatty acids, which helps fight depression and cancer to name a few, cod contains anti-aging properties, such as selenium – a natural skin protectant.
Cucumbers: With the highest water content of any food and loaded with silica (in the peel), cucumbers are guaranteed to plump up your fine lines and wrinkles. Whenever you can, purchase unwaxed cucumbers so that you can actually consume the peel.
Avocado: Rich in biotin and monosaturated fats, avocadoes are great for your skin, hair, and nails.
