Does A Healthy Diet Discourage Wrinkles?

Does eating the right foods discourage wrinkles?  Does eating the wrong foods make your skin wrinkle sooner and deeper?  According to a recent study of 453 women, your diet has a direct impact on your skin’s youthfulness.  Here’s what they found:

The study volunteers with the fewest wrinkles ate the most of these foods:

  • Olive Oil and Olives
  • Fish (especially fatty fish such as sardines)
  • Reduced-fat milk and milk products
  • Eggs
  • Nuts
  • Beans
  • Vegetables (especially leafy greens, eggplant, asparagus, celery, onions, leeks, and garlic)
  • Whole grain cereals
  • Fruit (especially prunes, cherries, apples, and jams)
  • Tea and Water

The study volunteers with the most wrinkles ate the most of these foods:

  • Red Meat
  • Processed Meats
  • Butter
  • Full-Fat Milk
  • Cheese
  • Ice Cream
  • Sweetened Drinks
  • Cakes
  • Pastries
  • Desserts
  • White Potatoes

NOTE: Rapid weight loss shirnks fat cells in the face before the body’s natural chemicals can tell the skin to tighten up, which will leave you with baggy skin.  To avoid this, lose weight slowly but steadily – one pound per week is a great target.  Also, get plenty of exercise – physical activity not only strengthens and rejuvenates the body, it also revs up circulation to the skin, which speeds the removal of toxins and sparks new skin-cell growth.
