Eating fruits and veggies loaded with vitamin C does more than boost your immunity, it may also offer the added bonus of making you look younger.
A study published in American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that eating more foods containing higher levels of vitamin C is linked to a reduced risk of having wrinkled skin and age-related skin dryness.
Good sources of vitamin C include cantaloupe, grapefruit, guava, lemons, oranges, papaya, pineapple and strawberries as well as broccoli, dark green leafy vegetables, sweet potatoes, tomatoes and red peppers.
So instead of just relying on hope in a bottle to keep those laugh lines at bay, you may want to serve it up with a daily dose of orange juice for breakfast, tomatoes at lunch and leafy greens for dinner.
