Like they say, you are what you eat. But what if you could eat your way to looking younger than your actual age? Listed below are the must-have ingredients you should always have in your pantry to help your skin appear youthful:
Vitamin C is essential to building collagen, which happens to be the vital component of younger-looking skin. Citrus also contains bioflavonoids, which help protect skin from UV rays and help prevent cell death.
Spinach, kale, and other greens contain lutein that helps to protect skin from sun-induced inflammation and wrinkles.
Salmon contains astaxanthin, a pigment that makes the fish's flesh appear pink. This compound fights against free radicals and rogue molecules which damage cell membranes and DNA, causing skin to age. According to one study, eating just one serving every five days
can help prevent 'actinic keratoses,' or precancerous rough patches on the skin.
Lycopene which is responsible for the fruit's striking red pigment is also a potent antioxidant that helps shield skin from sun damage. Eating tomatoes with olive oil can help the body better absorb this lycopene compound.
Just like carrots, these tubers appear orange thanks to beta-carotene. The compound helps in balancing your skin's pH, preventing dryness and promoting cell
turnover. The result is smoother looking skin.
