Top 5 Anti-Aging Foods for Skin Health & Beauty

You may be familiar with the concept of beauty from within nutrition. It's a growing field with substantial research highlighting the importance of key nutrients in the fight against skin aging. As you know, the skin is meant to be a barrier which only a handful of substances can penetrate. However, this is a double-edged sword that relegates many skin creams and topicals to little more than placebos.

Our gastrointestinal tract, however, is meant for absorption. And the nutrients your skin requires to remain elastic, radiant, and generally healthy all come from your diet.

Here are just a few anti-aging foods to add to your diet so that you can age gracefully!

For more detailed "nutrient-level" information, please see our blog on the Top 9 Nutrients for Skin Beauty or read our Skin Health & Beauty White Paper.


Pomegranate contains ellagic acid, which is a potent polyphenol and antioxidant.

2. TOMATOES AND GRAPEFRUITS These two fruits are loaded with lycopene, which helps protect the skin from sun damage. Also, they contain copious natural antioxidants.


Egg yolks contain lutein, which can protect the skin from sun damage. Also, the egg whites include albumin – a pure protein that can help tighten pores and balance oil levels.


Green tea is full of antioxidants that can help prevent certain cancers and reverse some signs of aging.

You need to consistently drink a large amount to see an effect, but it’s possible per the data.


As if you needed any more reason to drink coffee. A study completed in 2015 (of 130 women) found that drinking coffee (including decaf) may help protect the skin from aging.

Coffee is loaded with polyphenols, which also help to reduce skin hyperpigmentation. There are numerous other benefits coffee provides the body & diet, but remember to consume everything in moderation!


Many commonly consumed ingredients can really help in the fight against skin aging.

Sometimes though, a more concentrated dosage in the right forms is needed. This is where beauty from within supplementation comes into play.

Ensuring you are drinking enough water daily, getting the right nutrients and foods, and religiously following a robust daily personalized skincare routine is essential.
