6 Anti-Ageing Foods for

REJUVENATED SKIN

The keys to youthful skin are hydration, sunscreen, sleep, and plenty of anti-inflammatory foods. Here are the anti-ageing powerhouses that will keep your skin supple and glowing.

Berries

In general, berries support the health of your skin by giving you a significant dose of vitamin C. Vitamin C, of course, is an anti-ageing powerhouse that fights the free radicals that age your skin and make you more vulnerable to disease and illness.

Dark Chocolate

Dark chocolate (70% cocoa content or higher) is packed with antioxidants that lower skin-ageing inflammation. In particular, its high levels of theobromine and magnesium fight free radicals. These compounds are also linked with increased circulation and better moisture retention—both boons to beautiful skin.

Watermelon

Watermelon rejuvenates skin with its magnificently high water content—it’s 92% water! In addition, this fruit is a rich source of vitamins E, C, and A, which are all linked with healthy skin. Finally, its lycopene, an antioxidant that fights free radicals, makes it a significant skin saver.

Walnuts

Walnuts deliver healthier skin (and a healthier body in general) because they are full of omega-3 fats and have more antioxidants than any other nut. And their positive impact on gut health provides additional benefits to the skin.

Pomegranates

Research shows that the ellagic acid in pomegranates could stop wrinkles from forming. This compound works by preventing inflammation from UV rays and the breakdown of the collagen that keeps skin firm.

Kale

Dark leafy greens, in general, are rejuvenating foods, but kale, in particular, is rich in lutein and zeaxanthin, carotenoids that appear to support your skin’s elasticity. Lutein also may protect your skin from blue light, a wavelength of light that’s incredibly harmful.
