A healthy diet is key for maintaining glossy, wrinkle-free skin.

Below is a list of a few healthy diet choices, rich in anti-oxidants and youth-stimulating properties.

Olive Oil

Four decades ago, olive oil was found to decrease rates of heart disease and cancer on the Greek island of Crete. Olive oil is also a rich source of polyphenols, powerful antioxidants that may help prevent age-related diseases.

Chocolate

Believe it or not, chocolate is not only extremely delicious, but it’s also equally healthy. Being rich in cocoa, it contains flavanols that help preserve the healthy function of blood vessels. Maintaining youthful blood vessels lowers risk of high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, kidney disease and dementia.

Blueberries

Compounds in blueberries (and other berries) mitigate inflammation and oxidative damage, which are associated with age-related deficits in memory and motor function. They are also packed with vitamin C which boost your skin’s ability to maintain cells healthy.

Avocado

Avocado successfully nourishes and moisturizes your skin thanks to it being rich in Vitamin E and the B-complex. Avocado also contains glutathione, which assists in the anti-aging process.

 

Leafy green vegetables
Broccoli, kale, spinach and mustard greens will keep your skin hydrated and healthy. Green juices are also an easy way to help absorb the nutrients faster.
