Now you will have even more tools at your disposal to ensure your age is a secret that you can elect to tell or not. While there are several foods that contain multiple anti-aging properties I will only discuss a few in this post. If I did all of them you would be here for the rest of your life.

Make sure you have your note pad ready and as an added bonus there is a great anti-aging smoothie recipe at the end!
Slow Down the Aging Process Naturally
Natural products are one of the best healers available to you. They can boost your immunity, increase your energy levels and even protect against the visible signs of aging. In fact, most natural products are far more effective at giving you more beautiful, younger looking skin than any over the counter treatment. Below we’ll be sharing six of the best natural anti-aging solutions.
Avocado is a powerful natural healer for your skin when applied topically. The healthy fats in avocado nourish and moisturize your skin while vitamin E repairs any skin damage and reduces the visible signs of aging.
To start enjoying the anti-aging benefits of avocado, simply mash up a small, ripe avocado and apply it to your face. Leave it for at least 15 minutes before removing, so that it fully nourishes your skin and gives you the maximum anti-aging benefit.
Bananas are packed full of vitamin C which helps to keep your skin elastic and free from wrinkles. They’re also rich in manganese – a mineral that’s been proven to protect against skin damage and rashes.
You can use bananas topically to give your skin a more youthful appearance in the exact same way as avocados. Just take a small, ripe banana, mash it up with a fork and spread it on your face. Keep the mashed banana on your face for a minimum of 15 minutes, so that all the nutrients and moisture can absorb into your skin.
Coconut oil is one of the most effective natural moisturizers you can find. It’s also filled with antioxidants which protect your skin from harmful free radicals. In addition to this, coconut oil contains active components which repair damaged skin and help you look younger.
To start getting more youthful looking skin with coconut oil, simply rub a small amount into your face. Your skin will instantly feel smoother and more hydrated after using the coconut oil and over time you’ll find that fine lines, wrinkles and blemishes fade away.
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Extra virgin olive oil is another potent natural moisturizer. The secret to extra virgin olive oil’s anti-aging prowess lies in its high vitamin E content. This vitamin is a powerful antioxidant that protects your skin against the visible signs of aging and keep it looking youthful.
To use extra virgin olive oil as an anti-aging solution, simply rub a small amount into your skin. For the best results, use extra virgin olive oil just before bed, so that it can deeply moisturize your skin overnight.
Honey is a great deep cleanser for your skin. It’s loaded with anti-bacterial ingredients which remove bacteria and dead skin cells and allow fresh, younger looking skin cells to grow.
Unlike the other solutions on this list, honey is best used as a simple anti-aging facemask. Grab a tablespoon of honey, smear it over your face and leave it for at least 20 minutes. Then rinse of the honey and wash your face for instantly fresher skin.
