5 Foods to look fabulous at 40-plus

Five foods...
To help you look fabulous at 40-plus
Eggs: They are rich in vitamin E, which helps your body absorb calcium better, which is vital for strong, youthful teeth and bones.
Dates: They're a great source of vitamins A, B and C, and help digestive health - so they reduce a bloated stomach.
Almonds: Packed with wrinkle-fighting vitamin E, snack on a small handful every day (no more than nine or 10 at a time).
Berries: All colourful berries (from blueberries to strawberries) are full of antioxidants that protect the body against ageing.
Avocados: Full of antiageing vitamins C and E, they help keep your skin looking peachy and plumped up.
Five things...that just won't help

Smoking: Puffing away speeds ageing internally and externally.
Alcohol: Booze is one of the biggest agers, it dehydrates skin (causing wrinkles), slows your metabolism and causes fat deposits around your waist.
Sugar: Refined white sugar breaks down the collagen in your skin, which speeds up the appearance of wrinkles.
Stress: Studies say that stress and anxiety speed up cell ageing. Lesserstressed women always look much younger.
Fizzy drinks: Preservatives in some fizzy drinks can leach calcium from your bones making them prematurely age
