5 Foods For Wrinkle Protection


By Tracy Zwilling

Eat Your Way To Wrinkle-Free Skin:

1. Blueberries

Higher in antioxidants than strawberries. They are also high in vitamin C and can help strengthen collagen formation, thereby reducing the signs of aging.

2. Green Tea

A cup of green tea is a rich source of the antioxidant epigallocatechin, which helps fight aging.


3. Tomatoes

Lycopene in tomatoes has been shown to reduce skin cell damage and redness. To get the best benefit mix some extra-virgin olive oil into your tomato sauce to enhance

the absorption of lycopene.

4. Sunflower seeds

Sunflower seeds are an excellent source of the fat-soluble vitamin, vitamin E. Vitamin E has been shown to prevent cell damage from free radicals.


5. Fish oils

Cold-water fish, such as salmon and tuna, is an excellent source of omega-3 oils necessary for beautiful-looking skin. Supplement with distilled fish oil daily (approximately 2 to 3 grams per day).


In addition, to improve the texture of your skin and reduce fine lines, make sure your system is properly hydrated. Minimize dehydrators such as alcohol and coffee and substitute a minimum of 6 to 8 glasses of distilled water or herbal tea daily.

Chicks Magazine was created by Tracy Zwilling, the owner of Trace Design, an advertising design agency that specializes in custom publishing. Tracy was tired of magazines that kept telling her she wasn't thin enough, she was not a successful enough, her kids were not well adjusted and her home was not organized and coordinated. In fact, Tracy thought her life was going smoothly when most of the laundry was done (though not necessarily put away), her kids did not eat frozen pizza more than three nights a week and most of the sticky notes on her desk at work were thrown away by the end of the day (on purpose, not by accident). Chicks Magazine is not a magazine that answers any of life's great questions.
