When it comes to keeping your skin radiant and youthful as you age, it’s not just about maintaining a strong skincare routine or wearing sunscreen every time you go outside. Your diet can play a huge role in how your skin looks. One group of foods to eat at least a few times per week? Fish — more specifically, coldwater fish.

Coldwater fish include varieties like salmon, tilapia, sardines, canned light tuna, mackerel, and herring. What makes them so incredible for aging skin? They have a large number of critical nutrients. “In addition to proteins that are the budding blocks of our skin, they are rich in omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin E, proven to be powerful antioxidants and anti-inflammatory agents which help reduce redness associated with acne-prone skin and rosacea,” board certified dermatologist Yoram Harth, MD told She Finds.

Moreover, Dr. Harth says that these fish are full of zinc, which is “vital for the production of new cells in the skin and hair follicles.” All of these compounds work together to fight signs of aging and keep your skin supple and smooth.

In addition to making your skin radiant, coldwater fish have so many other health benefits that make them worthy additions to your dietary rotation. It’s a well-known fact that omega-3 fatty acids are excellent for overall heart health and can reduce the risk of heart disease. They boost cognitive function, and per a recent study, they may even be crucial for lessening the severity and presence of migraines and similar headache conditions. If all of that wasn’t enough, scientific research points to coldwater fish also potentially protecting your vision as you get older and improving sleep quality. Talk about a group of foods working double duty!

The next time you’re trying to figure out what to have for lunch or dinner, consider adding a few fish into the mix. Whip up a salmon and veggie grain bowl or have a Mediterranean night and include sardines in that pasta dish you’re putting together for a salty, meaty bite. Or, have a little sushi! The possibilities are endless, and your skin will thank you.
