Something that tastes great AND is good for you? You bet. Fantastic fruits! Especially the ones in deep, rich hues like blueberries and blackberries. These darker-toned fruits are potent sources of free radical-fighting antioxidants and boast an ORAC antioxidant rating of well over 2,000 (an apple is 218). “Free radical damage is one of the main culprits involved in the rapid aging of the skin,” says Dr. Doris Day, a highly respected and sought-after cosmetic dermatologist and medical journalist. “Your skin is also especially vulnerable to free radical damage from external sources such as ultraviolet light from sunlight and pollutants that are all around you every day, especially if you live or work in a big city.”*
2. Brazil Nuts
“They are high in selenium, a mineral that helps repair skin cell damage and prevent premature aging,” writes Christie Brinkley in her new book, Timeless Beauty. What’s more, Brazil nuts give you a tasty source of vitamin E, another powerful antioxidant.*
3. BioSil Supplements
“I’m a firm believer that you should get as many of your nutrients as possible from your food, but a good supplement can also work wonders. I started taking BioSil, and I’m amazed at the difference I’ve seen in my nails, skin, and hair. The nutrients in it help the body build more collagen, the substance that keeps your skin firm, plump, and smooth. I first tried it because I saw the remarkable results of their clinical trials,” says Christie Brinkley.*
