The same fresh, natural ingredients you use in your recipes can do wonders for your skin. Whole fruits and vegetables—especially those with anti-aging vitamin C—can fight free radicals, prevent wrinkles, and give you firmer, younger-looking skin.

So go ahead, eat your fruits and veggies! But apply them to your skin too. Ediible face masks are fun, simple, and easier on your wallet than expensive anti-aging treatments.
