Foods That Help You Look and Feel Younger

While beauty may only be skin deep theoretically, certain foods can rejuvenate your skin and brain cells to help you look and feel younger from the inside out. Experts say that your skin, which is the largest organ of the body, is often the first mirror of good or poor internal health. Smooth, glowing skin reflects inner well-being, while dry, flaking skin can indicate nutritional deficiencies. Eating antioxidant rich foods, such as berries, papayas, and watercress, can help protect the body, including the skin, against free-radical damage and slow down the aging process.

But if you want more bang for your nutritional buck to ensure nourishing your skin and brain from the inside out, try these five favorite foods:

Eggs. According to Ladders, eggs are a health food, chock full of nutrients such as protein and amino acids that are essential for the maintenance of glowing skin. They are also a good source of B-complex vitamins that are extremely important for the nervous system, good health, stress reduction, and brain function, says Dr. Daryl Gioffre, a board-certified nutritionist and author of “Get Off Your Acid. “All the B vitamins benefit, protect, and support the brain,” he tells Newsmax.

Salmon. Fatty fish like salmon contain omega-3 fatty acids that not only nourish brain cells, but keep skin cancer cells from growing and spreading, according to Ladders. Salmon also contains astaxanthin, an antioxidant that keeps your skin looking fresh and youthful. There is growing evidence that omega-3 fats boost memory and cognition and may also protect you from Alzheimer’s disease.

Beets. These veggies contain folates that research has shown can reduce the appearance of fine wrinkles by 60%. Beets are also rich in vitamin C which is known for its anti-aging properties.

Beef. Eating too much red meat is not healthy for your heart, but a few servings of lean beef can do anti-aging wonders, according to Best Life. Beef is an excellent source of protein which in turn helps to make the collagen that keeps your skin supple and youthful.

Olive oil. While rich in calories, consuming olive in small quantities can help erase blemishes and wrinkles caused by aging, according to studies. Legendary actress Sophia Loren was known to swallow two teaspoons with her meals and slather her skin with olive oil as a moisturizer, according to Well + Good. Dermatologists say that it’s the vitamin E in olive oil that keeps you looking youthful.
