What’s the secret to aging beautifully? A healthy diet! There are many foods we can eat that fight wrinkles and improve our skin! Look for foods high in protein, magnesium & vitamin C to help promote collagen growth. Also, try tomatoes as they have been shown to have anti-aging effects while green & yellow vegetables contain carotenoids & antioxidants that fight free radicals that break down collagen over time. Additionally, adding plant-based omega 3s (including flax seeds and chia seeds) to your diet can improve dryness associated with aging and improve skin elasticity.
