Top 10 Foods to Prevent Skin Wrinkles
Nobody likes the aging process, especially when you know it's going to make you gray-haired, wrinkly and full of achy joints.

As you get older, your skin becomes thinner, drier and less elastic. Throughout your life, your skin is going to go through some wear and tear.

Did you used to be a smoker? Did you always drink enough water? What about all those times in your teens and early twenties when you smothered baby oil on your skin instead of sunscreen? As "cool" as it was at the time, doing so caused permanent sun damage to your skin.

Even if you participated in these unfavorable activities, might there be a way to prevent wrinkles from forming on your face, neck and body?

According to an article from Natural Health Advisory, there are many foods that contain powerful skin-protective nutrients such as vitamins A, B5, C and E. These are in foods like chaga mushrooms, blueberries, goji berries, sweet potatoes and carrots.
