The pros of embracing a more clean-eating diet are very well known. Aside from weight management and a decrease in health risks, clean eating can make you look and feel younger. Countless studies have shown that organic foods rich in vitamins, minerals, nutrients, and antioxidants can protect your skin from UV rays and increase cell turnover, making your skin look younger and healthier.
Here are some of the best clean-eating foods that help turn back the clock and have you looking and feeling younger.


Salmon is a delicious protein that is easy to prepare and loaded with omega-3s. Omega-3’s are a “good” fat that contain alpha-linolenic acid, which keeps skin smooth and hydrated. Salmon can also decrease the appearance of chronic skin diseases like psoriasis or eczema.


Blueberries are the perfect last-minute snack that also happen to be loaded with antioxidants. Antioxidants can protect your skin from harmful particles, or free radicals, that can decrease collagen and damage skin cells.


Just like blueberries, pomegranates contain a ton of antioxidants, even more than a cup of green tea or a glass of red wine. They are also chock-full of vitamin C, which prevents wrinkles and premature aging.

Sweet Potatoes

Sweet potatoes make an excellent side dish, and also do wonders for your skin. They’re loaded with vitamin A, which increases cell turnover and keeps your skin looking fresh.

Whole Grains

Whole grains are a great way to manage your weight, but can also help fight skin aging with the help of polyphenols and carotenoids. Choose whole grains like oatmeal, quinoa, barley and brown rice.

Red Bell Peppers

Colourful capsicum make an excellent addition to any salad, sandwich, or entree. Packed with vitamin C, red bell peppers can help prevent wrinkles and skin aging. They can also help keep skin hydrated.


Although they may cause you to shed a tear, onions are worth all of the trouble. They are rich in quercetin, an antioxidant that protects against wrinkles. They have also been said to protect skin from UVB rays.


Here’s an excellent excuse to load up on chips and guacamole! Avocados contain a ton of vitamin E, which helps keep skin moisturized. Vitamin E also reduces free radicals and protects your skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays.
