7 Tips For Eating to Look Younger That Actually Work

 

By Sara Novak, Planet Green

The day I turned 25 years old I headed straight to the store and bought loads of different ultra pricey skin creams. I was sure this would keep me wrinkle-free. By 30 my tone had changed. I began to realize that while I still wanted to look young and vibrant, youth came from the inside. The foods you eat show through your skin. They’re what end up keeping you looking young or not so much. After all, your food is your medicine, three times a day, everyday.

As you already knew it’s loads of fruits and vegetables as well as other whole foods that end up doing the trick. If you’re concerned with aging gracefully, start where it matters, in your diet. Here are seven foods that will keep you looking younger longer.

1. Avocado and Other Good Fats

Avocado has a lot of things going for it not the least of which is its fat content. You’ll notice that as you age those with little flesh on the body, especially in the face, begin to age faster. A little flesh keeps us looking younger. Bathe yourself in good fats like olive oil and avocado. If you’re concerned with cutting the fat, focus on the bad fats like lard and excessive amounts of butter.

Thanks. I like the laughter lines round my eyes though - don't want to get rid of them!

Very good information! Thanks for sharing. Love them all except oyster.:) I guess instead of guava(if we can not find one in the store) we could also use other fruit or vegetables that are rich in vitamin C like lemon, kiwi, orange etc, or sour cabbage, paprika, broccoli....

Awesome! Also, work on your posture- nothing ages you like a slumped back and poor abdominal tone.

Great ideas except for the oysters. I will have to find another source of zinc.
