Aging is an inevitable process, but there's no reason why the process can't be slowed down considerably. In these times, the world is obsessed with youth even as popular culture continues to promote the idea of perpetual youth through procedures such as cosmetic surgery.

But do you know that with a great diet and even more specifically certain foods, you stand a chance of stalling the aging process as these foods leave you looking younger and more supple?

Here are 6 foods that help make you look younger.


  1. Grapes: Grapes contain resveratrol which has anti-inflammatory properties which help protect the skin from UV rays which is essential to younger looking skin because UV rays have damaging, aging effects to the skin. So grapes offer protection against these harmful harms.

  2. Apples: Apples contain pectin which prevents cholesterol build-up. The reason why this is essential for a younger-looking self is because high cholesterol level can trigger high blood pressure and other stress/heart related disorders which invariably age people faster.

  3. White beans: This is rich in iron which is great for the body as it fights impaired cognitive functions, fatigue and inability to regulate body temperature. Again this is important because a prevalence of these conditions can stress the body and invariably speed up the aging process.

  4. Guava: Rich in vitamin C, vitamin A and antioxidants like lycopene and carotene, guava contains minerals which help protect the skin from wrinkles and fine lines, thereby leaving the skin looking younger.

  5. Avacado: Avacado contains vitamin E which promotes rich and healthy skin. It's also great for fighting wrinkles and bags under the eyes.

  6. Water melon: Looking to have flawless, ageless skin? Then you best load up on water melon as they're rich in vitamin C, lycopene, antioxidants and amino acid which are great for the skin.
