1. Green And Yellow Vegetables
Vegetables are loaded with antioxidants, helping prevent oxidative stress (damage to cells caused by free radicals). So it’s not surprising that a study of Japanese women found that a higher intake of green and yellow vegetables (along with a higher intake of healthy fats) reduces wrinkling.
Blueberries are rich in flavonoids such as myricetin, quercetin, and kaempferol. These are rich sources of vitamins C and K and other nutrients that have an anti-aging effect and prevent cell damage.
Avocado is one of the anti-aging super foods with immense health benefits. It is rich in potassium, vitamins A, C, E, and K, and antioxidants that fight the effects of aging. Moreover, it’s good for your overall health.
These are loaded with water, so they hydrate your skin and your cells. One large orange is an excellent source of vitamin C, which helps make collagen and that, in turn, helps keep your skin supple. In general, vegetables and fruits are great for your skin. Go for lots of colors so you get a variety of nutrients.
One pomegranate contains 28 mg of vitamin C. That’s almost half of your daily vitamin C needs. The ellagic acid and punicalagin in the seeds are also great for your skin. Ellagic acid helps combat damage caused by free radicals, and punicalagin may help your body create collagen. Eating a raw pomegranate doesn’t have to be daunting. Roll the fruit around on a hard surface to loosen the seeds.
