2. Increase Omega-3 Intake

Another important factor of skin and keeping it wrinkle-free, is the skin’s ability to hold moisture which, when properly balanced, will keep your skin smooth and calm. The more moisture your skin can hold the less it is dry, scaly, and promoting of wrinkles. Although there are many products on the market that claim to help put moisture back into the skin on your face, one of the best ways to help your skin be moisturized is from the inside-out. To do this, your skin has to have a healthy supply of omega-3s. Omega-3 fatty acids help your skin to hold on to moisture and they can be found in many foods with ‘healthy fats.’ These include fatty fish, walnuts, flaxseeds, olive oil, avocadoes and chia seeds.

 

3. Increase Vitamin C Intake

To round-up the group for nutrients needed for your skin, we have vitamin C. One study in 2007 showed that women who had higher intakes of vitamin C actually had less wrinkles and dryness in their skin than those women that didn’t have a proper intake of vitamin C. Vitamin C can be taken as supplement, but it can also be found in many common foods including citrus fruits, peppers, kiwi, broccoli, kale, and berries. All of these are relatively easy to integrate into your diet and getting vitamin C from foods is usually better for your body than getting it from supplements. Our bodies also don’t store vitamin C so taking it in excess from supplements is not going to help your body reverse wrinkles any faster.
