Top 5 Anti-Aging Superfoods

Eat right, look younger — it’s as simple as that. Here are 5 anti-aging foods that may help to erase wrinkles and help you look younger.

1. Carotenoid-containing foods

The phytonutrients found in orange and yellow fruits and vegetables like oranges, squash, carrots, and orange bell peppers can help improve your skin’s vibrancy and stop collagen breakdown in its tracks. Other antioxidant-rich fruits can also keep your skin looking youthful. Raspberries and pomegranates contain ellagic acid, an antioxidant that has been found to reduce collagen breakdown.

2. Avocados

Pile of green Avocados. One of them is opened that the stone and the pulp are visible.

These are filled with a healthy type of fat, monounsaturated fat, which helps your skin stay hydrated, Zied says. That same healthy fat can also help you absorb some vitamins and nutrients that your skin needs. Try replacing high-fat salad dressings and mayo with avocado. It gives you a lot of flavor and texture, and you don’t need much to feel satisfied.
