As we age, lifestyle habits and genetics definitely influence our skin - especially if we have tanned or smoked in the past. The good news is that even though we age and are affected by these conditions, the search for glowing skin is not impossible. Creams and lotions will only be a quick fix, but eating the right foods will give you the gorgeous skin that every mature woman wants to have.

Researchers have discovered that eating certain foods helps fight against complexion concerns by providing our bodies with the nutrients to create and strengthen healthy tissue. That's why they recommend these 7 foods to give the skin the nutrients that it needs and get a healthy glow:


1) Carrots

Nutritionists and researchers both agree that carrots are not only good for the eyes, but also for clearing acne and rosacea. That's because of the vitamin A and beta-carotene that carrots have. Vitamin A is an antioxidant that helps to prevent overgrowth of cells in the skin. That means cells are less likely to flake and clog pores. Vitamin A also plays a very important part in reducing skin-cancer.

2) Tumeric

Turmeric not only protects your skin against cancer and reducing pain, but this spice also protects the outer layer of your skin. This is because of turmeric's active antioxidants which help decrease inflammation. Research also shows tumeric helps to lighten age spots on the skin.

3) Salmon

Salmon is a great source of anti-inflammatory omega-3s and dimethylaminoethanol (DMAE). These promote healthy skin because they protect the skin's cells.

4) Yellow Peppers

Vitamin C is important for the growth of muscle and skin tissue and collagen building. Researchers have found that the more green and yellow vegetables women eat, the less apt they are to have crows feet and wrinkles.

5) Eggs

To my fellow women: Eat the whole egg! As much as we would like to think that egg whites are "healthier". The truth is that the yolk is rich in vitamins that are important for cell function. The yolk also contains biotin, which helps protect skin from rashes, acne, and dryness.

6) Avocados 

Ladies, this is your task for the day: go and buy an avocado. Avocados are rich in monounsaturated fatty acids, which have been proven to hydrate the skin and prevent aging. The fats also help to absorb many fat-soluble vitamins that help protect your skin from sun damage.

7) Blueberries

Blueberries are a fabulous fruit for preventing premature aging. They are filled with antioxidants too. Nutritionists say that blueberries also help boost the strength of collagen fibers. This fruit helps heal your immune system and alleviate inflammation-induced skin conditions too!

Help your skin to glow by eating these healthy foods. Your skin will look fabulous and you will in turn, feel fabulous! That means when you're out on the town in your outfits from Anthony's, you'll not only look great, but feel great too!
