Anti-Aging Foods

Want to improve your complexion? Forget over-the-counter creams and just look in your kitchen. Nutritionist Alyse Levine reveals the surprising effects foods have on your appearance!

Brussels Sprouts: The food version of Botox. They are loaded with vitamin C, which is necessary for collagen production and can decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Dark Chocolate: Rich in flavonols, which are antioxidants that reduce roughness in skin and provide skin protection.
Salmon: Contains essential fatty acids that help prevent toxin buildup and retain moisture and nutrients in for plumper, younger-looking skin.
Brazil Nuts: Rich in selenium, which is a mineral that plays a key role in the health of skin cells and it can also help sun damaged skin. Just one to three nuts can provide 100 percent of your daily selenium needs.
Watermelon: Rich in lycopene, which helps eliminate skin-aging free radicals caused by ultraviolet rays.
Swiss Chard: Rich source of vitamin E, which acts as a powerful antioxidant and helps skin retain moisture.
Oysters: Contain zinc, which is vital to the immune system and the manufacture of collagen.
