Maintain that youthful glow with these anti-aging foods

The fight against aging has been around since time immemorial, and though we can turn to expensive creams and treatments, you might be surprised to find out that your pantry contains foods that have anti-aging components.

Here are just some of them:

1. Avocados

Avocados contain potent anti-aging properties in their flesh and oil. According to My Domaine, it’s a great source of vitamin E, which everyone knows is great for your skin. In addition, its fat content keeps your skin smooth, moisturized, and supple.

2. Tomatoes

Tomatoes are rich in vitamin C, which helps produce collagen—what keeps your skin looking firm, reports The Huffington Post. The lycopene in tomatoes also prevents sun damage and helps with your circulatory system.

3. Oats

Complex carbohydrates like oats are low-glycemic, which means they don’t spike your blood sugar and cause acne and wrinkles, dermatologist Dr. Debra Jaliman tells WebMD. Oats also prevent skin damage and helps soothe irritated skin.
