These little red gems are packed full of vitamin C, a potent antioxidant that helps keep your skin looking smooth and firm.
Packed with healthy fats, nuts like walnuts, hazelnuts and almonds, as well as seeds like chia and flaxseed are great sources of vitamin E.
Vitamin E helps keep your skin soft and supple.
3. Dark Chocolate
Yes, chocolate. The dark/raw cacao variety contains anti-ageing antioxidants called flavonoids.
They fight free radicals to protect your skin from UV damage and help prevent the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and skin discolouration.
Carrots are a winner for glowing skin, thanks to the large amount of beta-carotene they contain.
Beta-carotene prevents premature ageing by acting as an antioxidant, a substance that reduces oxygen damage caused by UV light, pollutions and other environmental hazards such as smoking.
Blueberries are loaded with anti-oxidants and vitamins that help protect your skin from premature ageing.
Rich in poly and monounsaturated fatty acids, avocados help keep your skin looking firm and dewy, help regenerate damaged skin cells, and reduce redness and irritation.
