Fight Aging with Food

Do you know that some of the common food around us help fight signs of aging. So next time when you go shopping, make sure you have some of these in your cart.
Watermelon - Reddish orange fruits like watermelon and tomatoes are rich in beta carotene which are known to slow down the aging process. With summers round the corner, it is a great way to feed your skin with this sweet and watery fruit.
Broccoli - Rich in Vitamin C,K and A, this green vegetable not only delays aging but also has anti cancerous properties.Did you know that applying a paste of Broccoli on your face helps fight sun burn due to UV Rays. Toss some of the florets into your daily salad diet.

Cucumber - The peel of this super-low-calorie fruit is made of silica, a building block of skin--plumping, wrinkle-preventing collagen. So think twice before you peel off the cucumber skin next time.
Pumpkin Seeds - The texture and quality of your skin predominantly is taken care by Vitamin E. Snacking on almonds,pumpkin seeds or sunflower seeds fulfill your daily dose of Vitamin E. Almonds are a great source but are also full of calories, so if you want all the vitamins with little or no calories have Pumpkin Seeds instead.
Fish - The natural oil found in most fishes is excellent for skin and hair.Not only that, it is also considered as a great brain food.

There are many more to add to this list like Oranges,Berries,Spinach etc. So to look beautiful eat healthy.So next time you go shopping, spend more time in the fresh produce aisle than looking for beauty creams !!
