The newest skincare formulas incorporate many of the same healthy nutrients (think antioxidants and essential fatty acids) you’ve been eating for years. Why? "When applied topically, they help shield you from free radical damage and improve skin texture," says Steven Pratt, M.D., author of Superfoods Rx: Fourteen Foods That Will Change Your Life.
For your antioxidant fix, try berry-infused the Body Deli Blueberry Fusion Facial Polish ($36; thebodydeli.com); Burt’s Bees Garden Carrot Complexion Soap ($8; burtsbees.com), with beta-carotene; or SFRx Complex Age Defying Serum ($70; superfoodsrx.com), with green tea. For essential fatty acids, try Joshi Holistic Skincare Night Cream ($58; spacenk.com), with wheat germ oil.
