Pawpaw is really healthy for your overall health and you should consume it on a daily basis. This fruit not only helps improve the digestive system but is also rich in vitamins A, K, C, and E, calcium, phosphorus, B vitamins, and other minerals that reduce fine lines and other signs of ageing. The papain in the fruit acts as an anti-inflammatory helping the body shed dead skin cells.

  • Eggs

These are natural and rich sources of protein. An egg a day maintains skin elasticity, keeps the hair strong, and keeps the skin firm and ageless.

Keep a balanced diet and drink an adequate amount of water to keep the skin free from signs of ageing.
