I am wrapping up my “Embracing Aging” series with a look at how to keep our skin soft and supple as we age – Embracing Aging After 40: Foods For Young And Healthy Skin! Beauty and confidence starts with attitude and spirit, and the products we use on our face can make a difference, too.

By eating the right foods – ones that work for you, not against you – you can improve the appearance of your skin. It’s beauty inside and out!
Superfoods are big part of my diet and my recommendations for eating as we age. I try to eat superfoods every day to keep my skin young and healthy. Here’s how I eat skin-beautifying foods all day long – give it a try, you are worth it and so is your skin!
Breakfast. Berries are a superfood must for healthy skin – try to eat more in your diet, they are so good for you! When I’m in the mood for something hearty, my go-to breakfast is a bowl of oatmeal topped with fresh blueberries or blackberries and a handful of nuts. This combination of foods is a wrinkle-fighting, toxin-cleansing powerhouse!
Lunch. This is where I focus on vegetables – so good for your digestive system, filled with fiber and nutrients, veggies are a must for healthy skin! One of the easiest ways to get tons of skin-nourishing foods into my diet is to whip up a salad made with leafy greens, carrots, and whatever other whole, fresh veggies I have on hand. I drizzle it all with a little bit of olive oil (a healthy fat) and balsamic vinegar.
Dinner. I try to eat salmon at least once or twice a week because it’s such a miracle food. Not only does it nourish your skin and calm inflammation, but it’s an extremely versatile protein. If I’m craving something spicy, I’ll make some blackened salmon tacos. If I’m craving something sweet, I’ll make a brown-sugar glazed baked salmon. And if I’m craving something light, some lemon and herbs is all it takes. Start adding salmon to your weekly meals and see how you feel!
And to top this all off, make sure to drink plenty of water every day! It’s so good for young and healthy skin, as it plumps it up and helps to eliminate toxins. So be sure to add a glass of water to each meal. I hope you try some of these healthy skin food suggestions in your meals this week!
