Anti-aging efforts go beyond facials and injectables. Consuming nutrient-dense foods rich in vitamins and minerals can help reverse the signs of aging. As we age, our collagen supply diminishes, but eating foods rich in skin-loving nutrients supports collagen synthesis. Natural collagen boosters consist of foods rich in ellagic acid, biotin, and vitamins C and E. Ellagic acid is vital for improving skin elasticity while biotin is a powerful acne fighter. 

Here are a few of our favorite anti-aging foods here at NESC for maintaining a youthful complexion:

Avocados
Order yourself an avocado toast next time you’re out for Sunday brunch! This fan-favorite is rich in healthy fats that can help nourish your skin and prevent dryness. Lutein and zeaxanthin also assist in protecting your skin from UV damage

Pomegranate Seeds
Load these up in your next smoothie bowl! Pomegranate seeds contain anthocyanins as well as ellagic acid, which help to boost collagen production

Blueberries
Excellent sources of powerful antioxidants, blueberries pack a punch against free radicals that can damage collagen in your skin, making it more wrinkle-prone. Vitamins C and E help you achieve a bright and healthy glow. 

Acai Berries
Known to prevent skin cancer by fighting off free radicals, acai berries are a major superstar for the skin’s overall health. Throw these into your morning smoothie and enjoy all the benefits! 

Ginger
Fresh ginger contains gingerol which has been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties, which in return helps control the aging process. 

Pumpkin
Set some aside from your pumpkin pie baking! Pumpkins are a great source of skin-boosting carotenoids which improve the skin’s brightness and firmness

Walnuts
Known as the “power” nuts, walnuts have the highest amount of antioxidant activity compared to other seeds and nuts. A staple for graceful aging and beautiful skin.

Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
Just ask J-Lo herself! Olive oil offers monounsaturated fats which are associated with increased skin elasticity and firmness

Green Tea
Swap your morning coffee for a cup of ceremonial-grade matcha! Green tea is high in polyphenols which protect collagens against UV rays

Bone Broth
Don’t toss out your chicken and veggie scraps! Brewing chicken bones and leftover vegetables creates a gelatin-rich broth filled with collagen, amino acids, and minerals that promote healthy, younger-looking skin

Salmon
This one is a no-brainer! Salmon is great for turning back the clock due to its abundance of skin-saving omega-3s.
