Plump Fine Lines with Egg Yolks

Egg yolks are loaded with lutein and zeaxanthin, antioxidants that heal and strengthen the tiny capillaries in your skin (the blood vessels that control how rapidly nutrient reach damaged skin cells), say Yale researchers. And their studies suggest that just adding two eggs to your daily diet could increase the amount of moisture in your skin by 60 percent or more -- plus lead to a noticeable reduction in dryness and fine lines in as little as one month. Eggs are also rich in selenium -- a mineral that strengthens your skin’s defenses against UV rays, reducing sun damage by as much as 37 percent.


 

Try it: Have an omelet for breakfast, egg salad for lunch or toss two eggs into a stir fry for dinner.
