They say ‘you are what you eat.’ And to be honest, if there’s anything out there that’d make me look more ageless and give me a helping hand then I would want to know about it. So I’m going to let you in on a few foodie secrets that you can incorporate into  your diet:

Goji Berries

Anti Aging Foods and Ingredients - Goji Berries

Goji berries provide a vast amount of benefits to the body, especially when it comes to the skin! They are one of the most nutritionally dense foods out there, and while they’re small, they are packed with vitamins, minerals, amino acids, phytochemicals and essential fatty acids. With such an incredible constitution, there’s no big surprise that they help manage the impact of aging on skin. These dried berries have lots of other health benefits that include protecting the eyes, providing immune system support, stabilizing blood sugar, and even helping with relieving depression.

Together with vitamin E and essential fatty acids, these berries are a perfect fit for your anti-aging and beauty routine.

Aloe Vera

Anti - Aging Foods - Aloe Vera

Forget botox, Aloe vera is all you need. It naturally increases collagen production leaving you with youthful, plump, wrinkle-free skin!

The inner gel found on the inside of the aloe vera leaf contains over 75 nutrients including  20 minerals, 18 amino acids and 12 vitamins. It also contains the vitamin b12, and it’s one of the only plants that exists that produces it. It’s also known to aid digestion, boost the immune system, and be highly effective at healing, moisturizing and rejuvenating the skin. Sounds pretty perfect, right?

If you’re going to include this in your diet, it’s best to eat Aloe fresh; all you need to do is scrape out the inside gel (if you can, try to avoid the outside of the leave because it can act as a laxative) and blend with your favorite fruits for an amazing, beautifying smoothie. 

Avocados

Anti Aging Ingredients - Avocados

We probably don’t even need to convince you to eat more of these (because they’re actually amazing), but incase you were wondering what they actually do - avocados are packed with antioxidants & healthy fats which makes them hugely beneficial for smoothing and softening for the skin. It contains both vitamin C which helps to create collagen & elastin, and vitamin E to prevent cell damage from free radicals which can lead to fine lines and wrinkles! 

Coconut oil

Anti Aging Foods and Ingredients - Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is beautifying and moisturizing for the skin and has antioxidant properties which protect against free-radical damage, keeping the skin youthful and healthy. Not to mention, it speeds up your metabolism and can actually help you lose weight. If taken internally or externally coconut oil is a great ally for any beauty skin care regime.

While eating the right foods can make a huge difference to your skin, it doesn’t mean that you can’t also get a little helping hand along the way! Our Daily Dual repair contains an anti-aging serum and a moisturizer in one that works to repair, rehydrate and rejuvenate your skin, giving you softer, smoother and younger looking hands. Have a look!
