Do the foods we eat make a difference in how wrinkled our skin becomes?

Do the foods we eat make a difference in how wrinkled our skin becomes?

According to a study published in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition (February 2001), the answer is yes.

Researchers assessed food and nutrient intakes of elderly people living in sun-exposed areas. The study results showed that a high intake of vegetables, legumes, and olive oil appeared to be protective against skin damage and wrinkles. Prunes, apples, and tea also showed wrinkle-control benefits.

Study participants who reported a high intake of meat, dairy products, and butter had the most skin wrinkling. In general, lower intakes of butter, margarine, milk, and sugar products
correlated to better skin quality.

Pass the legumes and hold the wrinkles.
