Purple sweet potatoes are an excellent way to include a hefty dose of antioxidants in your diet. They are a dietary staple in Okinawa, Japan- a blue zone region where individuals have one of the highest life expectancy rates in the world. 

Avocados are a great source of healthy monounsaturated fats as well as vitamin E, one of the most important nutrients for the skin, protecting it from oxidative damage. Vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin, which means it is best absorbed in the presence of fats at a meal. It has been shown to be more effective when combined with vitamin C- lemon!
