HHF Healthy Tips: 3 Foods That Keep Skin Younger Looking

I know my skin looks fantastic (I lie.) I look twenty years younger than I am. (I am in denial.) But I also know that not everyone is blessed with youthful beautiful ageless skin like me. (I am ducking.) But I thought it only fair of me to share some tips that will help you too have younger healthier looking skin!

Eat Oranges,Strawberries, Bell peppers or Kiwi. Better yet, eat all of these foods as much as you can. Why, you ask? Because they are full of Vitamin C, which fights the damage from aging free radicals. Plus, Vitamin C helps proteins grow that plump up your skin.

Eat Oatmeal. As we you all age, your body has a harder time replacing old skin cells with new ones. So your skin looks duller. Eating a bowl of oatmeal for breakfast can help your skin look less dull and more radiant thanks to this food's high content of biotin, a B Vitamin that actually helps the skin generate new cells faster. Hate oatmeal? Eggs, bananas and peanuts have biotin also.

Incorporate Flax into Your Diet. Flax seed is full of omega-3 fatty acids--and these help reduce inflammation (among other good stuff.) And inflammation = older looking skin. The British Journal of Nutrition reports that women who take a daily dose of flaxsed oil for 12 weeks have 45% less skin redness, 25% less dryness and significantly less roughness than those who didn't take the oil. Interesting stuff, right?

But of course, please always check with your doctor before making major changes to your diet, or anything related to your health.
