Your Skin Needs: An Anti-Aging Boost
Eat: Selenium, found in Brazil nuts, turkey, and whole grains.
To maintain a youthful appearance (read: fewer fine lines and firmer skin), selenium is essential. This mineral possesses both anti-inflammatory and anticarcinogenic properties. "But its most important job is to activate our natural antioxidant enzymes, which slow down the aging process," explains Dr. Graf.
Aim For: 55 mcg (2 cups of brown rice or 6 ounces of skinless, boneless chicken breast).
