4 Anti-Aging Foods You Should Try This Week For Wrinkle-Free Skin

Practicing healthy skincare habits really does start from within, with what you eat. You’ve probably heard it a hundred times before when it comes to eating the right foods for acne-prone skin, but the same rings true for women with aging concerns.

To gain more insight on which foods will help us really tap into our youth, we spoke with two board-certified dermatologists.

“Much of what happens to our skin starts from the inside,” Dr. Naissan O. Wesley, MD, FACMS Arbonne Scientific Advisory Board Member, told SHEfinds.

As you get older, your skin naturally stops producing certain nutrients that it needs to stay supple and wrinkle-free. To supplement those nutrients, you can eat foods that are rich in anti-aging properties.

“At the end of the day, a healthy body leads to healthy skin, and the best way to achieve a healthy body is to have a well-balanced diet,” advised Dr. Janet Prystowsky,  leading board-certified dermatologist and Founder of Livad Skin Care, LLC in New York City.

Here are the anti-aging foods they recommend:

Legumes

“Peanuts (if you aren’t allergic) or lima beans are an amazing source of protein and carbohydrates. Other legumes will do the job as well. I’m a big fan of lentil soup. Quinoa, while not a legume, is also a great vegetable source of protein,” said Dr. Prystowsky.

Avocado

“Eating collagen boosting foods, foods that are high in good fats, such as avocados, and foods high in antioxidants that help to repair free-radicals created from sun and environmental damage, will ultimately help improve skin quality,” said Dr Wesley.

Fruit & Vegetables

“In order to touch on every vitamin and mineral that we need for a healthy diet, it’s important to eat a variety of vegetables. A good rule of thumb is to eat vegetables of various colors. For example, vitamin A can be found in sweet potato, carrots, and dark leafy greens; and Vitamin K can be found in green leafy vegetables and brussels sprouts. Fruits are also very important. Vitamin C is found in many citrus fruits, and resveratrol is found in grapes, blueberries, and raspberries,” said Dr. Prystowsky.

Olive Oil

“There’s a reason the Mediterranean diet is so popular. Not only does olive oil taste great, it’s very healthy compared to the fats found in processed foods and animal based fats like butter. While processed foods and butter are saturated fats, olive oil is unsaturated,” said Dr. Prystowsky.
