Gotu kola (Centella asiatica): This Ayurvedic herb can strengthen connective tissue and build collagen. Research shows that topical application can improve skin’s elasticity and firmness.

Grape (Vitis vinifera): Grape seeds contain high levels of proanthocyanidins, antioxidants up to fifty times more powerful than vitamins E or C. Studies show that grape seed extracts applied to the skin can bond with collagen, boosting skin’s elasticity and texture and reducing the signs of aging.

Maritime pine (Pinus pinaster): Taking oral doses of antioxidant-rich pine bark extracts can increase your skin’s resistance to sunburn—and counteract the oxidative damage that UV exposure can cause.

Pineapple (Ananas comosus): Pineapples contain alpha-hydroxy acids and other natural fruit acids, which are used topically and have been shown in numerous studies to be an effective weapon against aging. You’ll also find them in mango (Mangifera indica), papaya (Carica papaya), and passion fruit (Passiflora edulis).

Pomegranate (Punica granatum): Pomegranate, which is high in antioxidants, can help repair aging skin. Extracts of both the peel and seed (oil) have shown the ability to inhibit age-related collagen loss and speed the production of new supplies.

Rose (Rosa canina, R. damascena): Rose is rich in antioxidants and has one of the highest concentrations of vitamin C in the plant world. Rose oil and rose hips (the fruits left behind after the flower dies) can prevent UV-induced skin damage and act as a natural sunscreen.

Tea (Camellia sinensis): Tea contains piles of dermis-friendly chemicals, including more than sixty antioxidants, at least forty anti-inflammatories, and malic acid (which combines both alpha- and beta-hydroxy acids). Drinking tea and applying it to your skin can protect against sun damage, preventing photoaging and skin cancer.

Chamomille (Matricaria recutita): Essential oil of chamomile has been shown to decrease puffy eyes and dark undereye circles.
