Taking into account how much more quickly we lose those vitamins and nutrients as we age, it quickly becomes clear: what we eat, and even sometimes how we eat it, plays a huge role in how much we represent our age in our physical appearance.

Here are some common food items high in many nutrients which help with your anti-aging goals:

  • Watermelon
  • Oranges
  • Avocado
  • Lean Beef
  • Salmon

  • Greek Yogurt

A healthy diet is key to feeling and looking your best at any age.

Foods that are high in nutrients like antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and healthy fats help boost our immune systems, fight free-radicals, and reduce inflammation. Your skin needs vitamins and antioxidants just like the rest of your body.
