Your diet is one of the most important parts of your skin care regimen to get rid of wrinkles. You can enhance the effects of a topical antioxidant program with a nutrition plan that promotes overall health. The best diet for good health and gorgeous skin is one made up of the freshest possible fruits and vegetables, combined with low-fat sources of protein, complex carbohydrates, and clean water. Add plenty of rest and at least a moderate amount of exercise and you may very well be accused of discovering the fountain of youth.

If your primary staples currently include fast food (any burger joint will do), processed food (if it’s in a can eating is bland) and plenty of sweets, you may not be ready for drastic changes in your eating habits. But, all hope is not lost. You can gradually improve your nutrition with just a few minor substitutions.

If you want to eat… ||| Try this instead…
bacon ||| turkey bacon
beef steak ||| salmon steak
ice cream ||| low-fat frozen yogurt
fried fish or chicken ||| bread-crumb baked fish or chicken
hamburgers ||| turkey burgers
pasta ||| spaghetti squash
potatoes ||| butternut squash
strawberry shortcake ||| hot mixed berry compote
waffles & syrup ||| slow-cooked oats with apples,cinnamon & raisins

For snacks, try:
half a cup of fresh, unsalted nuts
an apple, orange or pear
six black and green olives and celery sticks
fresh veggies, cut up finger-food style, topped with vinegar, soy sauce and olive oil
grilled shrimp (about a half-dozen large) with garlic on skewers. Dip in soy sauce.

I cannot stress the importance of a healthy diet enough. This is probably the most important advice I can give. Please share other diet tips

YUMMY.....I'm hungry after reading that. Yep diet is too often forgotten as the most important thing. It's not as sexy as a $100 skin cream.

I'd add eating blueberries, blackberries, and other dark colored berries.
Extra virgin olive oil, flax oil, fish oil (easier to supplement IMO)
As well as a host of anti-aging supplements to "Supplement" your diet and not be an excuse to eat poorly.
