Foods That Slow Down Aging

Let’s be honest — nobody wants to get Botox. And if you really take care of your skin, you can stay looking young for a long time (hint: always wear sun screen).

Here are some foods packed with nutrients that will keep your skin looking young:

Watermelon — Contains beta-carotene and lycopene, which increase your protection against UV rays.

Hemp/Fish — The omega-3 fatty acids in hemp and fish help your skin retain moisture.

Pumpkin seeds — Loaded with vitamin E, which is a big skin protector.

Acerola juice — Has 3,000 times more vitamin C than orange juice.

Cucumber — The skin of cucumbers are made of silica, which is the building block of skin. It can help prevent wrinkling.

Citrus zest – Eating one tablespoon of citrus zest a week can reduce your risk of skin cancer by 30%.

Broccoli — Researchers found that skin treated with broccoli-seed extract and then exposed to UV radiation had 38 percent less redness and swelling than untreated skin
