Can the food you eat really help to prevent wrinkles?

A healthy diet cannot prevent wrinkles indefinitely but it can slow down their appearance.

The human skin ages as a direct result of oxidation.

Oxidation is the process which causes an apple to turn brown when cut in half.

Your body suffers from the same process every time you take a breath. Unstable oxygen molecules called free radicals are formed in your body which damage healthy cells thus causing skin deterioration.

The effects of oxidation can be greatly reduced by providing your body with significant levels of antioxidants, of which vitamin A (carrots and tomatoes), vitamin C (oranges, kiwi fruit and broccoli) and vitamin E (nuts, seeds and fish) are the most important.

It is also paramount that you drink plenty water to prevent your skin from becoming dehydrated.

But of course the best thing you can do to keep those wrinkles at bay is to stay out of the sun.

Permanently aged skin is the price you pay for a temporary suntan.

Doesn't seem like a very good deal does it?
