7 Vitamins That'll Make You Look Younger
These anti-aging skin care tips will help you eat and drink years off
While "fat" is typically a four-letter word in the dieting world, Omega-3 is a good fat. Healthy fats keep the skin lubricated, help maintain the integrity of the cell membrane, which keeps toxins out of the skin and may even help protect against sun damage, says Bauer.
Where it's found:
Ground flax seeds
Safe, low contaminate fatty fish (such as Wild Salmon, Atlantic Mackerel and sardines)
How much you need:
Eat 3 to 5 ounces of fish three to five times per week. If you don't eat fish, you can get your Omega-3s in the form of a fish oil supplement, says Bauer, but she suggests speaking with your doctor before taking one since it can thin your blood. And choose a supplement that has 1000 mg of EPA and DHA combined.
