There are a number of foods that may help to reduce and manage the skin symptoms associated with aging. Avocados, for example, help nourish the skin with vitamins, minerals, and healthy monounsaturated fats. The antioxidants in blueberries help protect the skin from free radicals. Broccoli is full of vitamins and minerals and also helps promote production of collagen, for better skin elasticity. The catechins in green tea help protect the skin from the sun, and green tea also contains plenty of antioxidants, such as polyphenols.
- Avocados are rich in healthy monounsaturated fats, which may aid the skin in its efforts to absorb needed nutrients.
- Research suggests that blueberries have more antioxidants than any other edible item.
- Adding blueberries to a skin-saving diet helps ensure that the millions of free radicals regularly attacking the skin will be met with a plethora of warrior antioxidants.
