Wrinkles are a product of sun damage, free radical damage and gravity. Most of the wrinkle creams on the market do not deliver the results they promise because they can’t penetrate the skin deeply enough to make a difference. However, eating a nutritionally packed diet, loaded with anti-oxidant, vitamin-rich foods, may produce better results than any wrinkle cream for a fraction of the price. Before spending hundreds of dollars on anti-aging products, try adding a few power-packed foods to your meal plan in conjunction with a good sunblock and products that are clinically proven to be a wrinkle cure (i.e. Retin-A and glycolic acid).
