Along with pollution, sleeping in your makeup, and messaging in your products with the wrong fingers (really) and what you eat could be causing wrinkles. It’s true: Simple carbs, sugars, and even dairy affect your skin’s internal make-up, like its elasticity from wrinkle-induced glucose spikes. Inflammatory foods break down collagen and DNA (ever heard of dairy face?) and even cause the cursed adult acne. Basically, that slice (or, if we’re being honest, slices) of pizza are prematurely aging you, so think again before another pizza-and-wine night. (Alcohol is another wrinkle-causing item. More bad news, we know.)

So in an effort to look as young and youthful as we can while eating healthfully (which, of course, are synonymous with one another), we searched for the best anti-aging foods that will help plump up our skin and fend off fine lines and wrinkles, all according to science.

7 Foods That Make You Look Younger

1. Berries

Strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, grapes… These small fruits contain antioxidant properties that prevent or delay some types of cell damage and can reduce joint swelling and pain. We especially recommend that you consume blueberries as they improve cognitive abilities and help prevent urinary diseases, Alzheimer’s, and dementia.

2. Bell Pepper

Bell Pepper is food high in vitamin C. However, make sure that they’re fully ripe before consuming, as studies show that the vitamin C content increases as the pepper becomes more ripe and vivid in color. Chop them up in your salad for amped-up collagen production and sun protection.

3. Eggplant

The deep-purple skin gets its rich color and anti-aging power from nasunin, a nutrient that helps fight the spread of cancerous cells by cutting off the blood supply they need to multiply. Research also suggests that nasunin may slow the development of Alzheimer’s disease by preventing free radicals from damaging neurons.

4. Walnuts

Another great source of copper, walnuts can also prevent premature graying. Their Omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin E helps keep your hair strong and shiny. Eat a quarter of a cup every day and you’ll start to reap the benefits.

5. Strawberries

Sparkling, white teeth can take years off your appearance. In fact, a 2015 study by Oral B found a brighter smile can make you look at least five years younger. If your teeth are discolored, make strawberries a regular part of your diet. They contain natural astringents that help remove stains to keep your pearly whites glistening.

6. Avocados

These are super-healthy fats that help maintain hydration in the skin. Avocados can also help you absorb important nutrients and vitamins into the skin, which helps fight wrinkles and fine lines.

7. Mango

This tropical fruit is not only delicious, but it can help your skin with its collagen production. Collagen is what helps your skin look plump and supple; as we age our collagen and elastin is no longer produced by our bodies, plus the collagen we have is being bombarded by free radicals breaking it down. The beta-carotene found in mangoes also helps your skin look younger by battling dullness and promoting a healthy glow.
