5.Tomato – One powerful antioxidant that protects the skin from environmental damage is lycopene and tomatoes are full of it. Cooked tomatoes contain more lycopene than raw tomatoes.

6.Sweet potato is a powerful antioxidant and is fat-soluble. Smoother skin after munching on sweet potatoes regularly, as our bodies turn beta-carotene into vitamin A, which helps smooth skin and ward off wrinkles. They are disease-preventing, cancer-fighting, and immune-boosting benefits.

7.Dark chocolate is good for you! It’s a great source of antioxidants and a potential mood elevator (and we all know that feeling good is a great way to get glowing skin). Chocolate with 80 percent cocoa solids or more to get a hearty dose of antioxidants and avoid excess sugar.

8.Salmon This fish is rich in long-chain omega-3 essential fatty acids, most beneficial kind. Omega-3s bolster heart health, may fight depression, and  help keep skin young, supple, and radiant. Wild salmon also contains astaxanthin, a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory.

9.Spinach/Kale / Broccoli Greens contain antioxidants that can reduce the risks of heart disease, protect your eyes, enhance immune response, and help your skin by blocking sunlight-induced inflammation, which can lead to wrinkles and skin cancer

10.Brown Rice Carbohydrates are long-term energy foods and should never be given up unless you want to invite trouble. Substitute white pasta and rice with whole wheat pasta and brown rice and you will instantly feel the difference in your energy level. Rich in Selenium.  Brown rice is rich in selenium which reduces the risk for developing common illnesses such as cancer, heart disease and arthritis.
