A lot has been said about ageing gracefully. But obviously none of us wants to look old ever. Age signs are one of those things that will appear one day or the other. We love the anti-ageing potions but it is best for our skin if we include some good foods in our diets.
The following foods will help you in slowing down the ageing symptoms-

Green Tea

This anti-oxidant Powerhouse has tremendous benefits. It not only helps you in shedding weight but also in shedding years. The catechin polyphenols present in green tea help in fat oxidation and slow down the skin-ageing.
White tea is also as good as green tea when it comes to anti-ageing. Personally, I like the taste of white tea better especially when I infuse it with some fresh lemon grass from my balcony-garden.

 

Olive Oil

It has high anti-oxidant content. It not only gives youthful skin but also prevents cardiac diseases and age-related cognitive issues. Whether you massage it on skin or take it in your food, you are getting the goodness of its anti-inflammatory properties also.

Fish:-

Fish can never be behind when it comes to beautiful skin. We know that many fish are rich in omega-3 fatty acids. Eating fish gives you smooth and healthy skin. In some eastern parts of our country, fish is a prominent food-item and the result shows in the glowing skin of bong-beauties. It improves memory also.

Tomatoes:-

Tomatoes contain lycopene, an antioxidant agent that helps in maintaining the texture of skin. We know the benefits of applying tomatoes on our face so why not include them in our diet to get even better and long lasting results.

Nuts:-

It is advised many times to eat a fistful of nuts everyday. They are good for our overall health. They contain proteins, vitamins and a lot of healthy fats. Nuts like cashew, almonds, peanuts and walnuts help in maintaining the elasticity of skin. They also have anti-inflammatory properties. These are good options for vegetarian people like me who can’t get the benefits of fish.

Berries:-

All kinds of your favourite juicy berries can help you in your fight against ageing. Berries like blackberry, blueberry, strawberry and cranberry are full of anthocyanins that are anti-oxidants. These slow down the ageing at cellular levels. Berries also have anti-carcinogenic properties.

Whole Grains:-
Grains are very good for our skin and general health. Whole grains are full of vitamins, anti-oxidants, minerals and fibers. They keep our cells healthy. Whole grains are also effective in preventing diabetes and cardiac diseases.

 

Green Leafy Vegetables:-
