Your diet affects much more than your weight; it affects your skin, hair, and overall appearance!
Before her tips, a quip from a gorgeous, youthful actress:
“It’s time to stop worrying about losing our looks and started celebrating the gifts of age: I feel yummier than ever,” said Sela Ward.
Sure – it’s easier for her to say! Sela Ward is naturally gorgeous. The rest of us could use a little help here and there as we strive to achieve our beauty goals…and it’s great to know that certain healthy foods reduce wrinkles and keep us looking younger.

7 Tips for Reducing Wrinkles and Rashes
1. Reduce wrinkles and rashes with natural collagen. “Aging is collagen failure. People who restrict their calories decrease their inflammation, so they age less quickly. People who take many and varied antioxidants, vitamins and minerals and who keep their hormone producing organs functioning at a robust, healthy level age much less quickly,” says Dr Hunter. “In fact, they seem to stop aging.”
2. Avoid inflammation –it makes you look old. “Food causes inflammation, which causes disease and aging,” says Dr Hunter. “Other things also contribute to inflammation, such as pollution, sunlight, radiation, stress, medications, and chemicals. Inflammation and glycation are the chemical processes that change our appearance.”

I’m a huge fan of moisturizer every morning and night, and I don’t wear pore-clogging makeup or cosmetics. I don’t know if this makes a difference, but I definitely like my skin better when it’s clear of makeup.
