#1 Sweet Potato

Younger skin is just a sweet potato away. The root vegetables are rich in “beta-carotene”, an antioxidant that is then converted to Vitamin A once ingested, to keep fine lines and wrinkles at bay. To top it all off, these tasty orange veggies contain almost no fat and carbohydrates!

#2 Dark Chocolate

Not all chocolates are equal when it comes to anti-aging. Here we are talking about dark chocolates with at least 70% cacao. Studies have shown that flavanols in dark chocolates can protect your skin from the damaging effects of UV rays and increase blood flow to your skin, leaving your skin wrinkle-free, plump and moist.
