Here are some anti-ageing foods that will help to keep you looking and feeling young …

Brazil nuts

These nuts are a rich source of selenium. They will help to protect your skin from the sun’s ultraviolet rays and may thus help to limit dryness of the skin.

Oily fish has great anti-ageing properties

Salmon as well as mackerel are high in omega 3 fatty acids and also help to reduce the tendency to dryness. In addition, fish is a good source of protein and this is vital for repairing skin cells.

Lean steak

Lean steak is a great source of protein and is also necessary for the continuous repair and renewal of skin cells as well as other cells in our body. Apart from that, it is also an excellent source of iron, ‘a mineral that is vital for carrying oxygen to cells’.

Plums

Plums as well as other purple fruits are loaded with anti-ageing nutrients. These nutrients help to ‘keep the walls of the capillaries in the skin strong, ensuring that they receive a good supply of blood and oxygen’.
