Want Younger Skin? Eat This!
Younger skin is about more than genes and topical skincare products – though those aren’t to be ignored! – it’s also about what you put in your body.
Turns out, you really are what you eat since that broccoli you’re loading up on is also used by your body to produce new skin cells.
So, you want to eat for younger skin? Here’s what you need to know…

Get Down With Fat
Nothing makes skin look older than dehydration. Sure, making sure you’re drinking enough water is essential, but it’s not enough. Rather, healthy fats help increase moisture and maintain elasticity. The key: heart healthy fats! Yes, the same healthy fats good for your insides (think mono- and polyunsaturated fats and omega-3 fatty acids) are also good for your outsides! Omega 3 fatty acids, for example, help fight sun damage and slow aging; and monounsaturated fats boost skin elasticity.
