Foods for Younger-Looking Skin

Nov 23, 2010 1:09:33 PM / by staff

Anti-aging is a combination of correcting hormonal imbalances and improving your lifestyle to become more active and eating healthier foods.  Can you eat your way to a younger appearance? You can if you know what to eat!

Best Foods for Younger-Looking Skin

Romaine lettuce: Just six leaves of romaine contain more than 100% of your daily recommended value of vitamin A. Vitamin A increases cell turnover and the potassium in romaine improves circulation, which adds up to more youthful skin.

Tomatoes: Eating tomatoes helps reduce your risk of sunburn and increase levels of skin-firming collagen. Some studies also suggest that the more tomatoes you eat, the fewer wrinkles you'll have.

Strawberries: Packed with vitamin C, strawberries help boost collagen production. They also contain an antioxidant called ellagic acid that prevents skin sagging.

Apples: The antioxidant quercetin helps protect against UV damage and is found in the skin of most apples. Monroe, Cortland, and Golden Delicious varieties contain the most quercetin.

Soy: Studies have shown that women who eat soy foods that contain the soy isoflavone known as aglycone have firmer skin and fewer fine lines.

Eggs: Eating eggs helps make skin softer, firmer, and better hydrated and helps prevent sun damage.

Almonds: One handful of almonds provides ample amounts of vitamin E for healthier, more moisturized skin.

Walnuts: Half an ounce of walnuts provides 100% of the daily value of alpha-linolenic acid, an omega-3 fatty acid that helps keep skin moist and supple.

As an added bonus, these foods contain vital nutrients that help keep your entire body healthy!
