7 ways to maintain your health and prevent disease as you age.
In our twenties, production of collagen (a fiber that keeps skin firm) slows and dead skin cells shed less quickly.

Eat sweet potatoes, carrots, cantaloupe and leafy greens for beta carotene and include lycopene-packed tomatoes and watermelon in your diet.
