The food that we consume makes a huge difference in how we age and how we feel about ourselves…so why not help ourselves to some age-defying foods!

Here are a few foods you should definitely have on your plate:

Colorful Fruits and Vegetables such as deep red tomatoes, blueberries and carrots, have antioxidants that help stop unstable molecules from damaging healthy cells. Blueberries are best for smoothing fine facial lines. These blue wonders contain more antioxidants than almost any other food, giving your skin extra protection against skin-damaging radicals that result from sun exposure, emotional stress, and even over exercising. Aim for anywhere between 5-9 servings a day of fruits and veggies, and make sure you have at least half a plate worth.

If you are looking to firm your skin, Kale and Spinach are your best friends. These leafy-greens contain phytonutrients that help guard against damage caused by the sun. Spinach is especially filled with beta-carotene and lutein, two nutrients that are known to improve skin elasticity, according to a study in the Journal of Agricultural Food Chemistry.

Especially increase your intake of Vitamin C, which can also help keep your skin younger looking. Also, Resveratrol is known to help lower your chances of acquiring cancer, heart disease and premature aging.

The “good fats” in Olive Oil are highly beneficial to the skin as well. They contain heart-healthy omega-3s, which improve circulation, leaving the skin rosy and supple.
