Anti-Aging Foods To Try Now

Learn what foods you can eat to elevate your anti-aging practices.

Anti-Aging Foods To Try Now

We all immediately think about serums and creams (and hopefully microcurrent!) when it comes to anti-aging, but did you know that food also plays a part? These six foods not only nourish your body with antioxidants and essential nutrients, but they also nourish your skin from the inside out, acting almost as an anti-aging device. As well as being delicious and tasty, these food items are known to help slow down the aging process and even help keep skin look younger longer.

So, let's take a look at some of these everyday food items and get this anti-aging thing going!

A Daily Dose of Green Tea

Green tea is full of antioxidants, and these antioxidants are powerful when it comes to achieving younger looking skin. Free radicals, which break down the collagen in the skin, are targeted by green tea’s antioxidants, which helps the battle against aging skin.

So how much green tea should you be drinking? Two cups of tea helps protect your skin from sun damage, but 3 to 5 cups a day has been shown to provide optimal benefits for your overall health, including your skin’s health.

Wake Up With Eggs

Eggs, which are usually known for being high in protein, are another great source of antioxidants. Their amino acids help generate new skin cells while softening, hydrating, and firming the skin.

This protein powerhouse contains many nutrients that work overtime as you age, specifically vitamin E and B12 which are important for overall skin’s health. In addition, eggs have vitamin A and zinc that helps to improve your overall skin tone and texture. Most importantly, when you eat your eggs, don’t skip the yolk because that’s where the highest concentration of nutrients is found!

Fish For Radiant Skin

Want to chow down on even more antioxidants? Consider eating fish. Usually known for heart health, fish is packed with omega-3 fatty acids that not only is good for your heart but is also good for your skin. The omega-3 fatty acids will help keep your skin supple and hydrated. Plus, when you choose fish from the menu, you’ll improve skin radiance due to a reduction in inflammation and redness. Pssst...don’t forget about the fish skin! It’s the best part and is also a good source of collagen and vitamin E.

Go For The Whole Grains

Brown rice, oats, and whole wheat are all known to contain compounds that help fight the aging process in many ways. They have the power to reduce inflammation thanks to the antioxidant rutin. In addition, a very skin-friendly antioxidant called selenium is found in whole grains, like pastas and breads, and it provides skin protection from environmental damage while promoting skin elasticity. Biotin is also commonly found in wheat germ, which helps in the prevention of dry and scaly skin.

Don’t Forget Your Red Fruits & Veggies

Hit up that salad bar! Red fruits and vegetables serve as an excellent anti-aging device. First, there’s raspberries and pomegranates which contain antioxidants that help with cell renewal and cell hydration—all of which keep your skin looking amazing! Along with raspberries, blackberries and blueberries also have anti-aging antioxidants.

Next, there’s tomatoes that have lycopene, which has been shown to fight off fine lines and wrinkles.

Radishes also help fight against skin dryness and acne because of their abundance of zinc and phosphorus. They also contain a high-water content, which provides a hit of hydration to the skin.

Fajitas tonight? Don’t forget the bell peppers! Red, orange, and yellow bell peppers are high in vitamin C which help aid in collagen production. Plus, other antioxidants in peppers help to ward off sun and other environmental damage.

Mmmmm...Dark Chocolate!

We’ve got some amazing news for all you choco-holics—dark chocolate is another healthy food that fights signs of aging! This delicious treat contains phenols that have an antioxidant effect and help protect against free radicals, particularly those caused by sun damage. There are also a ton of essential minerals loaded in dark chocolate, such as copper, iron, and zinc, that promote cell growth that leave your skin with a radiant glow. 

Where To Find Anti-Aging Foods

Just take a trip to your local grocery store or farmer’s market—you’ll be able to pick up some of your fave skin-friendly foods. Anti-aging foods are an excellent natural choice for your skincare regime, and they are found just about everywhere. We recommend using them along with our NuFACE® Anti-Aging devices to really amp up those benefits. 

Looks like gorgeous skin is on the menu!
