As you pass your 30s, and maybe even your 40s, 50s, and beyond, you may notice one disturbing change in your skin—it looks dull.

Remember that youthful glow you had years ago? You see it again when you look at younger people around you. They don’t have to work at it—their skin just looks dewy and fresh.

Unfortunately, as we age, we lose some of the elements that help us hold onto that youthful radiance. Though a regular, nourishing skin care routine is critical for keeping your skin looking its best, what you eat can also make a difference.

10 Foods That May Make a Noticeable Difference

What's Your Skin Score Quiz

Your skin is your body’s largest organ, and is just as affected by your diet and exercise program as the rest of your body. So the best advice for restoring that glow is to eat a healthy diet. There are, however, certain foods that are likely to show a more noticeable difference in your skin than others. Here are 10 to try:

  1. Almonds: They’re full of essential fatty acids, which help hydrate and plump skin, and they also are rich sources of vitamin E, which brightens the look of skin. Pumpkin seeds are another good option in this category.
  2. Blueberries: We love blueberry seed oil in our skin care formulas, but you can also benefit by eating the fruit. Not only will you benefit from the anti-aging antioxidants, but you’ll enjoy vitamin A and C.
  3. Arugula: A dark, leafy green, this is an excellent source of vitamin A. Other foods that are rich sources of vitamin A and the related ingredient, retinol, include apricots, yogurt, eggs, tuna, and beef liver.
  4. Kiwi: This juicy little fruit is a leading source of vitamin C, which is known to tighten and firm the appearance of your skin.
  5. Brazil Nuts: These are one of the few foods that are rich in selenium that also can firm and tighten your look.
  6. Dark chocolate: Indulge without guilt, as dark chocolate (the higher the cocoa content the better) contains flavonoids that help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  7. Crab: Particularly if you have oily skin, add this food to your diet more often. After all, nothing ruins a healthy glow more than clogged pores. Crab is a great source of zinc. Other foods high in zinc include oysters, beef, lamb, wheat germ, spinach, and pumpkin seeds.
  8. Radishes: Considered one of the most beautifying foods, radishes contain sulfur, silicon, and vitamin C. Best of all, eating radishes can have a brightening effect, and can help lighten the look of your skin.
  9. Green tea: This natural wonder helps restore a youthful bounce to skin. Armed with super antioxidants, it protects from environmental stressors.
  10. Oranges: They are a great source of vitamin C, but are also known for their toning capabilities. We use orange oil in our products for these reasons and for its ability to balance skin oils, but having more inside you is likely to help you see even more benefits.
