  • Deep fried food can add to inflammation. On the other hand, vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat dairy and lean protein can help fight inflammation.
  • Lettuce, broccoli, spinach, tomato, watermelon, grapefruit, guava, salmon, chickpea, oat meal and brown rice help in curbing inflammation.
  • A long way to preventing wrinkles is to eat food items like carrots that are loaded with vitamins.
  • Almonds and walnuts are rich in Vitamin E and help to fight skin problems.
  • Green tea has powerful anti-oxidants to protect skin from damage.
  • Yogurt has probiotics that nourish skin from inside and outside.
  • Honey is hygroscopic in nature.
  • All berries are healthy anti-oxidants. They kill radicals that are in bodies, damaging DNA and cells and causing premature ageing. Berries can fight damages caused by environmental pollutants and toxins.
  • Turmeric acts as anti-oxidants.
  • Alcohol should be avoided as it creates free radicals which damage cells and accelerates ageing.
