Every now and then I see women striving for a beautiful skin and a healthy body where most of them spend an enormous amount of money on truckloads of chemicals in the hope of some magic. What saddens me is, they overlook the part where there are no assured long-term effects, and of course, other adverse effects to the body.

Rather than being skeptical, you must go through this list of top 9 foods that are indeed the most preferable anti-oxidants:
