Leafy Greens 


If you’re looking to reverse the signs of aging and restore your healthy complexion, then dark leafy greens are a diet staple. Spinach, kale, and arugula are all inflammation-fighting veggies full of skin-healing vitamins and nutrients known to reduce chronic inflammation. Throw some in a blender with berries for a superfood smoothie, or pair with lean salmon for a filling salad, and you’ll be well on your way to rejuvenated skin. 





Last but certainly not least in our roundup of anti-inflammatory diet staples, is the often understood tomato. Whether you think it’s a fruit or a vegetable (it's technically a fruit), a ripe tomato is rich nothing short of a skin-healthy superfood. Tomatoes are an excellent source of lycopene, a naturally occurring carotenoid that may reduce inflammation and even protect against cancer. The anti-inflammatory properties in tomatoes are the perfect fit for repairing cell damage and giving the body its necessary nutrients for a healthy youthful glow!
