2 Lemon And Lime Juice
You may have been using it in your summer lemonades or benefiting from its cold-relieving properties. But, the one beauty treatment you should definitely use the lemon for is for its anti-aging benefits.
The acids in lemon juice contain concentrated levels of antioxidants. These flush out the toxins and free radicals from your body. Detoxing aids in proper regeneration, which gives you glowing and younger looking skin. The Vitamin C found in lemons increases the production of collagen which is responsible for your skin’s elasticity. Collagen production keeps your skin looking tighter and younger.
Blueberries are rich in vitamins A and C, as well as an age-defying antioxidant called anthocyanin. This is what gives blueberries their deep, beautiful blue color. These powerful antioxidants may help protect skin from damage due to the sun, stress, and pollution by moderating the inflammatory response and preventing collagen loss. Throw this delicious, low-sugar fruit into a morning smoothie or fruit bowl, and let it provide a beautifying punch!
Avocados are a well-known source of healthy fats to include in our diets, as most people know. They’re rich in certain mono-unsaturated and poly-unsaturated fats that keep our hearts healthy, lower cholesterol, and they even contain fiber and protein to keep us full. Avocados are one of the best anti-aging foods you can eat.
Just like the omega-3s found in salmon, avocados are jam-packed with the inflammation-fighting fatty acids that keep the immune system functioning properly. They also help both your mind and body age gracefully, so add the green fruit into your salads, top your toast, or use it to make a healthy pudding.
Many nuts (especially almonds) are a great source of vitamin E, which may help repair skin tissue, retain skin moisture, and protect skin from damaging UV rays. Walnuts even contain anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids that may help: strengthen skin cell membranes, protect against sun damage, give skin a beautiful glow by preserving its natural oil barrier. Sprinkle a mix of nuts on top of your salads, or eat a handful as a snack. Don’t remove the skin, either, as studies show that 50 percent or more of the antioxidants are lost without the skin.
If you’re looking for more delicious plants to try, choose fruits and vegetables deep in color. The rich shades are usually a sign of stronger radical fighting abilities to keep your skin healthy and vibrant. The more colors you can fit on your plate, the better.
