Looking to reverse the signs of aging? Then look no further than your kitchen.

Wrinkles are actually a sign of inflammation, and one of the primary causes of inflammation in the body is caused by the foods that we eat. So if you want to prevent or even reverse wrinkles, then look to what you’re eating (and not eating).

In general, you’ll want to eat a diet high in antioxidants and nutrients and low in sugar and processed foods.

Here are 6 steps you can take to enjoy a youthful look, while feeling beautiful inside and out for many years to come:

1. Avoid Inflammatory Foods
Cut out inflammatory foods such as fast foods as well as sugar, dairy, and gluten. They all increase inflammation which speeds up the signs of aging. In addition, avoid processed foods whenever possible.

2. Stay Hydrated
Make sure you’re drinking plenty of water in order to keep your skin looking smooth and healthy. The more hydrated your skin is, the healthier and younger you’ll look. Coffee, soda, and alcohol are all dehydrating, so be sure to balance out these drinks with additional glasses of water.

3. Incorporate Omega-3 Fatty Acids into your Diet
Fatty acids, such as flaxseeds, chia seeds, and avocado are all great choices when it comes to keeping your skin hydrated.

4. Consume Protein
One of the reasons we get wrinkles is due to losing collagen and elastin in our skin. One of the easiest ways to avoid losing elasticity is to consume proteins that contain amino acids. These powerful protein sources will help to repair skin damage and prevent premature aging. You can find amino acids in foods like fish, grains, seeds and nuts. Bone broths are also a great source of collagen.

5. Drink Rooibos Tea
Consuming Rooibos tea will fuel your body with important polyphenols that help protect your skin from premature aging, as well as excessive wrinkles. It’s also a great alternative to coffee. Coffee is known to dehydrate your skin so choosing rooibos tea as a substitute will help minimize that.
