Diet and Wrinkles


Wholesome, Healthy Diet Prevents Wrinkles

In an international study of eating patterns and skin aging, investigators found that dark and fair skinned people who ate plenty of wholesome foods but passed on butter, red meat and sugary confections were less prone to wrinkling. And the effect of diet was consistent in sun-drenched regions as well as sun-deprived areas.

Some of the skin-smoothing foods included green leafy vegetables, beans, olive oil, nuts and multigrain breads, researchers report in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition. Many of the skin-protecting foods the study turned up are rich in antioxidant vitamins, which may fend off environmental damage, according to researchers led by Dr. Mark L. Wahlqvist of Monash University in Melbourne, Australia. Wahlqvist and his colleagues studied the current diets of more than 400 adults aged 70 and older living in Australia, Greece or Sweden. The Australian group included both fair-skinned "Anglo-Celtic" individuals and Greek-born men and women. The researchers found that even when they factored in age and smoking - which is linked to premature skin aging - diet still played a role in wrinkling of sun-exposed skin. Overall, people who ate more of the foods that are universally recommended for good health had smoother skin. The study authors speculate that certain foods offered skin protection due to their high levels of antioxidants such as vitamins A, C and E. The skin, they note, is a "major target of oxidative stress."
Monounsaturated fats such as olive oil may offer protection through the same mechanism, Wahlqvist and colleagues note. Fatty acids are present in the skin, and monounsaturated fats resist oxidative damage, the team explains.
The researchers note that more studies are needed to determine whether certain foods do indeed ward off skin aging.
