Still waiting to take a dip in that fountain of youth and emerge wrinkle-free? Yeah, us too. But in the meantime, achieving a fresh glow sans magic wand or surgeon's knife can actually be easy and delicious, especially when you whip the stuff up yourself.
Science can even back us up here: Folks who frequently cook at home consume fewer calories than those who rarely cook, according to a June 2015 study from Johns Hopkins University. You just need to figure out how certain nutrients can rejuvenate your body, says Elizabeth Peyton-Jones, ND (doctor of naturopathic medicine).
Her latest book, Cook Yourself Young: Improve Your Skin & Hair, Sleep Better, Look & Feel Younger With 100 Easy Recipes, is packed with fresh and inventive recipes designed to help eliminate bloating, bags under your eyes, and other unwelcome signs of aging. (Dry, dull hair, we're lookin' at you.) Once you give these dishes from Peyton-Jones' DIY healthy-aging manual a try, you're gonna want to see the other 94 delicious recipes. Trust us.
