Vitamin C can prevent wrinkles and slow signs of aging

Filed under:

Forget expensive anti-wrinkle creams -- the key to preventing wrinkles is wearing sunscreen, getting lots of sleep ... and eating lots of oranges? That's right, a new study shows that people who ate lots of vitamin C had fewer wrinkles than those who didn't.

That's not all -- those with diets rich in Omega-6 fatty acid showedhless signs of aging, while those who ate diets high in overall fat showed more. Omega-6s can be found in sunflower and safflower oils, as well as some fish. For more information on what to eat to keep your skin looking it's best, check out this article from WebMD.

What do you think -- does what you eat really play a role in how well you age?
