As time passes our skin changes with age due to a lifetime of sun exposure, personal habits and other natural changes. As we get older, we can notice that our skin doesn’t appear as smooth or tight as it once was. Products such as NPL Carni Lean can help with the effect of aging. Below are a list of foods that will also slow down the effects of aging…

1. Blueberries

Blueberries pack a powerful dose of antioxidants, which protect the skin from radicals that can damage your skin and lead to wrinkles. Sprinkle a handful of blueberries on yoghurt or oats to turn your breakfast into a time machine for your skin.

2. Spinach
Lutein and Beta-Carotene are 2 powerful compounds found in spinach which can help to firm up the skin and increase elasticity. Swap your lettuce leave for spinach in your next salad for an easy way to eat your way to firmer skin.

3. Salmon
Combat dry skin by eating cold-water seafood like sardines or salmon. Rich in Omega-3, eating salmon regularly will help keep your skin plump and moist.

4. Watermelon
It’s the perfect season. Watermelons are sold in grocery stores around the country. This juicy fruit boasts lycopene and beta-carotene, which works as a natural SPF for your skin. Eating watermelon can protect your skin from sun damage as well as “sun spots”.

5. Pumpkin Seeds
Vitamin E is another great antioxidant for preventing skin damage and retain moisture. Grab a handful and much on them as an afternoon snack, or sprinkle pumpkin seeds over a salad.

6. Cucumber

Cucumber contains Silica, which is found in the peel. Silica helps to build collagen. For a wrinkle-fighting snack, slice up cucumber and dip it in hummus or Greek yoghurt.
