We all want to love what we see when we look in the mirror. When we like what we see, it boosts our confidence, and we head into our day with a sense of power & purpose. It is the best feeling. Using the right products can help you get great skin, but it is only one piece of the puzzle. If we fuel our bodies with the right foods, we boost our skin from the inside out. And the results we see from our products can be exponentially greater and faster. Hello to aging in reverse from the inside out! Want that youthful glow? Add these 5 foods for younger looking skin.

#1 Kale

This dark, green leafy vegetable contains key vitamins C & K. These vitamins help strengthen the blood vessels. With strong blood vessels you can have reduced appearance of those dark circles under your eyes.

#2 – Blueberries


These tiny berries are a powerhouse of goodness for your skin. Blueberries contain Vitamin and naturally occurring retinoids (related to vitamin A) and antioxidants. All of these can reduce breakouts, protect from damage caused by the sun and even encourage collagen production.

#3 – Bananas

This breakfast staples contains Vitamin C which brightens and evens the skin tone. You will also find Vitamin A in bananas. Vitamin A can reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines – yes, PLEASE!

#4 – Ground Flax Seed

Flax seeds have so many health benefits for your whole body. For your skin, these seeds can reduce skin irritations (like rashes & acne) because they contain phytochemicals and antioxidants. The key is to use ground flax seeds. These are more easily absorbed in the body.

#5 – Turmeric

Most often found in Indian and southeast Asian cuisines, this spice is also great for your health. It can help heal the skin and reduce breakouts. Turmeric has also been shown to brighten the skin’s appearance.

By adding the 5 foods for younger looking skin, you can start to see your skin to change. It will begin acting and looking younger. You will get the great skin you want and love your results. Then when you add in your favorite anti-aging products you will get a boost in your results in less time than using the product on its own.

Now you have your beautiful skin foods & their powerful anti-aging product partners working together for incredible results. You may be wondering how to incorporate these foods into your daily diet.
