5 anti-ageing foods to try

1. Strawberries

Strawberries provide an excellent source of vitamin C (more than an orange), as well as being packed with collagen-protecting antioxidants.

2. Almonds

These contain vitamin E, healthy oils and amino acids to nourish the complexion. They’re also a good source of copper, which stimulates melanin production to offer increased protection against damaging UV rays.

3. Avocados

Full of skin cell-protecting vitamin E, avocados have collagen-boosting D-mannoheptulose sugar. High levels of healthy fats can help calm inflammation and reduce skin dryness.

4. Cucumbers

Cucumbers are rich in silica, a key mineral that many people lack in their diet. Silica plays an important role in strengthening connective tissues in the skin, preventing sagging and averting deeper wrinkles.

5. Buckwheat

This gluten-free grain is one of nature’s best sources of bioflavonoid antioxidant called rutin. This also has capillary-strengthening properties that can help prevent spider veins, which is a classic sign of premature ageing.
