Everyone wants radiant and glowing skin, and the age old saying ‘you are what you eat’ is certainly true in many respects when it comes to feeling healthy on the inside and the outside.
While there’s no magic food that will wipe wrinkles away, there are foods that are jam packed with nutrients that provide the vitamins and minerals you need to help give your skin a healthy glow, so you feel younger and more vibrant.
Here are our top five anti-aging foods that will help to provide the extra glow you’ve been looking for:
Oats are complex carbohydrates and low-glycemic which means that they don’t spike your blood sugar like some other foods such as bread, rice and pasta. Foods that are high-glycemic are known to cause acne and wrinkles. Adding oats to your diet will help to prevent skin damage and will work to soothe any skin irritations.
Delicious oranges are packed with water which hydrates the skin cells and provides plenty of vitamin C which in turn generates the collagen that makes your skin supple and radiant. Fruits in general with a lot of colours are usually great for your skin so next time you’re at the supermarket adding grapefruit, tomatoes or any colourful fruit to your basket is a great way to fill your diet with anti-aging foods.
Well known for being filled with monounsaturated, healthy fat, avocados work to keep your skin hydrated and are filled with essential vitamins and nutrients that your skin craves.
Delicious lean beef is a source of high-quality protein and if cooked on high heat offers tremendous benefits for anti-aging. The protein in the lean beef works to create collagen which is a rich source of anti-aging properties for your skin.
If you love fish, salmon is one of the best remedies for anti-aging. The omega-3 in salmon not only works to keep skin cancer cells from growing and spreading, but the fish also works to create plenty of essential oils that work to improve your skin and fight the signs of ageing. Consuming fish will help to protect against cholesterol build-up in your arteries and protect against abnormal heart rhythms.
Eating well and ensuring you have plenty of fresh food in your diet will help to erase wrinkles and help you look younger. A nutrient-packed diet paired with staying active and eating well can slow down the ageing process and keep you fit and healthy.
