Green and Gorgeous

Avocados nourish your body from the inside out—which will help you look and feel younger at any age, say Lyssie Lakatos and Tammy Lakatos Shames, registered dietitians and authors of The Secret to Skinny. Full of monounsaturated fat and antioxidants, avocados can help keep skin looking youthful by reducing inflammation, which damages tissues. They're also high in potassium, a mineral crucial to heart function. Finally, the fat helps your body better absorb vitamins A, D, and E—all key players in glowing skin.
