We all know that eating well (and in moderation) makes us feel better and helps us stay in shape.  But, according to Dr. Christopher Calapai, D.O. ,board certified in family and anti-aging medicine, beauty really does come from within.  He tells us not to underestimate the power of certain foods when it comes to maintaining our health and improving our overall appearance.  These are his top picks for looking more beautiful and youthful.

  1. Edamame: Collagen, the fibrous protein that keeps skin firm and wrinkle-free, begins to decline in your 20s.  Eating edamame, a food rich in soy, can help preserve collagen.  Soy contains isoflavones – a natural compound that is capable of exerting estrogen-like effects.
  2. Tart Cherry Juice: Who knew that this tangy drink naturally contains melatonin? Well, it does.  And melatonin promotes sleep.  Beauty sleep – enough said.
  3. Oysters:  These shellfish are filled with selenium and zinc, which both possess skin-clearing properties.  Zinc is a trace mineral that is essential for its role in cell growth and cell replication.  Selenium is a dietary mineral that increases your antioxidants levels.  Antioxidants are critical for preventing blocked pores.
  4. Honey:  This sweet treat is a natural humectant, meaning it attracts water.  When it comes to your skin, consuming honey helps draw water from the mineral tissues to the surface of the skin, keeping it moisturized, supple and flake-free.
  5. Sweet Potato: Aside from being delicious, sweet potatoes contain beta-carotene, which is converted to Vitamin A.  Vitamin A prevents hair from becoming dull and lifeless and your scalp dry and flakey – which can result in dandruff.
