They break down the toxins that are most harmful and damaging to the skin. Free radicals can slow collagen production and cause drying wrinkles that leads to wrinkles and faster aging.Add them to a morning smoothie, mix them up with your granola, or even sprinkle them on top of salad.

Salmon is full of Omega 3’s that help with all kinds of conditions, notably helping protect your skin from one of it’s biggest enemies: the sun!Damage from sun exposure can lead to premature aging and creepy skin. Adding salmon to your diet helps repairs already damaged skin cells while helping new cells regenerate and hold moisture for increased elasticity and health.

These fatty acids repair and regenerate skin cells, helping to retain water and increase collagen production. They are also a fantastic defense against free-radicals that can damage and age your skin from the outside. So, whip up some guacamole and get glowing!  WILD.  


4.CITRUS

(Are ya sensing a theme here?). As we age, our bodies naturally produce less Vitamin C which leads to visible signs of aging, especially when it comes to our skin. If you’ve gotten to the point where you’ve visited a dermatologist about skin aging, they’ve probably suggested a vitamin c serum or cream at some point. But the best way to get that vitamin c? Eat it! Load up with citrus fruits like oranges, lemons and grapefruit for a high, natural dose of the stuff And, sorry, mimosas don’t count.  

5.WATER

Okay, okay. We know it’s not a “food”. But you DO consume it every single day, and chances are, you’re not getting enough of it. Adding more H2O to your daily routine is the fastest, most effective way to help your skin regenerate cells, and literally moisturize from the inside out. In fact, drinking enough water is the most important part of the process because, without it, all the nutrients you absorb from other awesome foods don’t get properly processed by the body.  Okay, okay.
