FEED YOUR SKIN


Vitamin C with Strawberry

Strawberries have more anti-aging vitamin C per serving than oranges or grapefruit. People who eat foods rich in vitamin C have fewer wrinkles and less age-related dry skin than those who don’t.

Soften skin with walnuts

Walnuts contain omega-3 essential fatty acids, which can improve skin's elasticity. The nuts are also loaded with copper, a mineral that boosts collagen production. Snack on a handful of walnuts each day to improve your complexion's texture.

Look younger with oatmeal 

Steel-cut oatmeal is less processed than other varieties, so it retains more vitamins. Plus, it takes longer to break down in your body, which helps keep your blood sugar stable. This is important because studies found that spiked blood sugar elevates your body's level of androgens, hormones that can contribute to wrinkles.

 Even out your skin tone with soy

Drink a latte with soy milk or eat edamame and you may get a clearer complexion. Soy contains minerals and proteins that have been shown to reduce hyper pigmentation. One cup a day should yield results.











Fight Crow's-Feet with Peppers

Women who eat green and yellow vegetables regularly tend to have fewer wrinkles, especially around the eyes. Studies found that carotenoids, the antioxidants in yellow and orange veggies, can decrease skin's sensitivity to the sun. Aim for about two cups of peppers daily.
