About 10% of the population gets wrinkles before they turn 50, so it's no surprise that many people want to know how to look younger. Research has shown that what you eat and drink can make a big difference in whether you develop wrinkles early, so you may want to incorporate these five wrinkle-fighting foods into your diet to help prevent the appearance of wrinkles on your face and body.

Best Foods to Prevent Wrinkles
Fruits & Vegetables
Fish & Seafood
Beans & Legumes
Flaxseed & Other Nuts
Whole Grains & Yogurt


Fruits & Vegetables
Fruits and vegetables are some of the best food sources of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, which can help to prevent wrinkles. Some examples include kale, spinach, avocados, Brussels sprouts, red grapes, and blueberries.

Vegetables especially good for wrinkle prevention include cabbage family members, like broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots. Other leafy greens, such as collard greens, may help prevent the signs of ageing. Salmon is a great source of omega-3 fatty acids, which are good for your skin. Be sure to drink plenty of water! Drinking water helps flush out toxins from your body and keeps your skin looking healthy and refreshed.


Fish & Seafood
Seafood such as salmon, tuna, and shrimp contain high levels of Omega 3 fatty acids, reducing skin redness and irritation. Also, know when you're looking to lose weight, these are considered some of the best foods to avoid wrinkles.

Remember that you need plenty of vegetables, and other nutritious foods like salmon and soybeans, so don't forget them when shopping at the grocery store. Salmon is a great food because it's both lean protein and a good source of Omega 3s.

Beans & Legumes
What foods help prevent wrinkles? A diet that is rich in foods like beans and legumes. These proteins are high in copper and zinc, which have been shown to affect skin elasticity positively. One study found that women who consumed more protein from meat or fish had a higher risk of developing wrinkles than those who consumed less protein from these sources. The best way to combat this is by incorporating plant-based proteins into your diet.

Flaxseed & Other Nuts
Fibre is important in any diet, and not just because it can help prevent colon cancer. In the battle against wrinkles, a fibre diet will help keep you full and satisfied, which should reduce cravings for more unhealthful snacks.

The omega-3 fatty acids found in flaxseed and other nuts can also have a wrinkle-fighting effect on skin cells and lower inflammation.

Whole Grains & Yogurt
Eating a diet rich in whole grains can protect the skin from free radicals and wrinkles. In one study, women who ate more than five servings of whole grains daily had fewer wrinkles on their faces.

Yoghurt is an excellent source of calcium and vitamin D, both of which help keep skin hydrated and elastic, preventing wrinkles from forming.

Summary of benefits and conclusion
As we age, our skin loses its elasticity and firmness, leading to wrinkles. Eating these five foods that help prevent wrinkles will help keep your skin looking more youthful.

Conversely, the best foods to avoid when you want fewer wrinkles are refined sugars and starches like white bread, crackers, chips and pizza crust. Eating them often can increase inflammation in the body and cause breakouts.
