10 foods to help reduce wrinkles

Shopping around for an anti-aging facial cream can be a frustrating process, because most of the products are either too expensive or not effective at all. However, you may or may not be aware that there are various foods you can incorporate into your daily diet that will actually help give your skin a natural and healthy glow.

If you can’t afford to shell out the money to buy expensive anti-aging creams, or if you’re simply experimenting with different ways to help fight wrinkles, here are ten foods you could try eating to help prevent your skin from premature aging!

1. Omega-3 eggs

Because Omega-3 eggs have been produced by chickens that have been fed flaxseeds, soy beans, corn, and alfalfa, the eggs have a natural ingredient that can not only help provide nourishment to your skin but also prevent heart disease.

2. Garlic

Not only is garlic known to help fight off vampires, it’s also great at fighting any harmful bacteria in your body. Because garlic acts as an antioxidant, it can actually protect your skin against damage caused by stress, oxidation, and much more.

3. Salmon

If you incorporate salmon into your daily diet, or any other type of orange sea food for that matter, it can force your skin to look healthier and reduce wrinkles as well. Salmon contains both protein and Omega-3 fatty acids which are both known to help protect your skin from any damage or premature aging.

4. Beetroot

Beetroot is very rich in fiber and is also an excellent source of antioxidants. Not only that, beetroot’s all contain an anthocyanin pigment which can help increase collagen production.

5. Cashews

If you eat cashews on a regular basis you can help eliminate any free radicals in your body which are known to increase the aging process. Cashews also contain loads of vitamin E components which can help prevent premature aging and protect your skin from any damage.

6. Spinach

Spinach contains special phytonutrients and antioxidant compounds that can help prevent wrinkles on your face as well as defend your skin from sun damage.

7. Chocolate

Some experts believe that eating chocolate, or even applying chocolate to your skin, can actually help reduce any thin lines or wrinkles on your face. Although this fact is disputable…it may be worth a try if you want an excuse to eat chocolate every day! In moderation of course.

8. Red Peppers

Red peppers are loaded with both vitamin A and vitamin E, which are both known to help provide nourishment to your skin and protect it from UV rays as well.  Because red peppers contain these important vitamins, eating them will also help replenish and renew your skin cells.

9. Broccoli

It was recently discovered that a protein found in broccoli could in fact prevent your skin from aging prematurely, and can also protect your skin from sun burns and even skin cancer.

10. Blueberries

Blueberries are considered to be the most powerful berry because they act as an antioxidant and can also reduce cell damage. Blueberries are also known to neutralize DNA-damaging free radicals, and by protecting your skin cells can also help your skin look younger at the same time.
