Although developing a regular skincare routine is a step in the right direction for younger-looking skin, what foods you eat can be just as important. If you are not seeing results from your skincare products alone, it may be time to examine what you are eating more closely.

According to experts, the foods you eat have a huge impact on your outward appearance–specifically, many foods that can be easily incorporated into your diet can give you younger-looking skin.

tomatoes on cutting board


According to Dr. Amanda Doyle, Board Certified Dermatologist & Lycored Brand Ambassador, tomatoes are one of the best foods for a more youthful complexion. "Tomatoes are the key to reviving inner glow. This potent, natural anti-aging ingredient contains high levels of beta carotene and high concentrations of lycopene," she explains.


Dr. Doyle continues, "Lycopene increases carotenoid levels in the skin and reduces free radical damage." Overall, tomatoes can help reduce inflammation and maintain skin's collagen.

Cherries are another delicious ingredient to add to your diet to help you look younger.


Dr. Doyle explains, "Cherries contain antioxidants and micronutrients as well as Vitamin A and C, iron, folic acid, and calcium. Antioxidants possess powerful anti-aging properties and vitamin A and C have been shown to have photoprotective properties." These photoprotective properties can help guard your skin against sun damage.
