Anti Aging Foods

Women who want to banish wrinkles, achieve a radiant glow and keep their skin soft and plump are looking for the best anti aging cream. But for years, studies and research have also proven that diet can help you achieve all these benefits and get the maximum effects of your beauty products. So in the following, we’ll focus on certain foods that work best in improving your skin appearance and health.

Anti Aging Foods

Olive oil

Researchers in 2012 had discovered that women who consumed higher amounts of olive oil, which is linked to fewer aging signs, were able to keep a youthful appearance of their skins versus their counterparts who didn’t consume olive oil in their diets. Why olive oil is good for the skin? It is loaded with monounsaturated fats that play a major role in boosting youthful glow. They also have polyphenols that could neutralize free radicals.

Dark chocolate

If you think that dark chocolate is bad for your skin, think again. Did you know that it contains flavanols, which are great antioxidants for the skin?
These compounds work by improving blood circulation and hydrating your skin.  So if you want to get the most out of your face creams, include dark chocolate in your diet.  But to avoid possible weight gain, the experts suggest eating only one ounce of it daily.

Green tea

Based on certain studies, green tea is a potent source of polyphenols, which can help you achieve a smooth and elastic skin.  So if you’re going to drink green tea daily, you can have flawless skin and experience one-quarter less sun damaged if you’re always exposed to UV light. Green tea contains antioxidants, particularly EGCG, that can improve oxygen supply and blood flow to the skin.


A serving of it is loaded with omega-3 fatty acids, which are some of the best fats on the planet.  And in case you don’t know yet, omega-3 fatty acids are anti-inflammatory, and that said, it can help you prevent acne and other skin problems; thus, sardines in your diet, aside from using the best skin creams, can help you keep a clear skin.


Oats are perfect for breakfast! They’re even better than your traditional bagel. For example, you must avoid bagels and the likes, which are loaded with refined carbohydrates and sugars, which are associated with the production of insulin and the increased levels of androgen that can stimulate the sebaceous glands, leading to excess oil trapped in the pores, clogging them and resulting to acne and breakouts. So for a healthy and skin-friendly breakfast, stick with oatmeal and add some almonds or chopped fruits for more nutrition.


If you want to keep your skin youthful, eat tomatoes on a daily basis. According to studies, individuals who had five tablespoons of tomato paste every day with olive oil for two and half months had 33% more protection against sunburn versus the other group who just consumed olive oil (Study is based on a UK study in 2008).
