Your Skin Needs: Firming

Eat: Ellagic acid, found in raspberries, strawberries, pomegranates, and pecans.

Although most of the studies on the antioxidant ellagic acid have been done in vitro (on cell cultures) or on animals, many scientists believe it's a promising cancer-fighting ingredient. What's more, a new study published in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology found that ellagic acid can also help protect the elastic fibers that keep skin structure intact and maintain firmness despite destructive enzymes. In fact, nutritionists like Oz Garcia, PhD, diet expert for Equinox Fitness, are touting pomegranate as the new superfood for total health.

Aim For: 8 ounces of pomegranate juice.
