The Fruit That Fights Wrinkles

If you are a beauty conscious, and don't want to use anything but foods to fights wrinkles on your face, neck or other parts of your body, then good news!There is a fruit that can lead the charge. It's Papaya. What makes papaya so perfect? Easy. Vitamin C. Papaya has loads of it, and getting lots of vitamin C may mean more youthful skin -- fewer wrinkles and less thinning and dryness. A recent study in women over 40 confirmed it. The Mysteries of C Vitamin C is a natural friend to skin. The nutrient is essential for making collagen, the protein fibers that give skin its strength and resiliency. And being a powerful antioxidant, C also disarms free radicals that would otherwise chip away and weaken collagen. (Did you know? Vitamin CVitamin C helps protect skin from this sun scourge.) More Food for Your Face A little extra vitamin C isn't all it takes to plump your complexion. Here are a few more food tips that can help keep your face fresh:
  • Munch on walnuts. In the vitamin C study, researchers also noted that diets rich in linoleic acid -- an essential fatty acid in walnuts -- meant moister, plumper skin.
  • Ease up on fats and refined carbs. Scientists found both were linked to aging skin.
  • Think whole grains. The magnesium and B vitamins you get from them help with the regeneration of skin cells.
  • Keep the fruits and veggies coming. To stay smooth and healthy, your skin needs a whole slew of antioxidant-rich produce.
