Fight Eye Wrinkles From The Inside Out

Your diet is one of the most important parts of your skin care regimen to get rid of eye wrinkles. You can enhance the effects of a topical antioxidant program with a nutrition plan that promotes overall health. The best diet for good health and gorgeous skin is one made up of the freshest possible fruits and vegetables, combined with low-fat sources of protein, complex carbohydrates, and clean water. Add plenty of rest and at least a moderate amount of exercise and you may very well be accused of discovering the fountain of youth.

In adopting healthy eating habits, you need a protein, a good source of carbohydrates and a small amount of unsaturated fat. This translates to meals that include a piece of chicken or fish, fresh vegetables and fruits, and a small amount of monounsaturated fats such as olive oil or a few nuts (such as almonds or macadamias). You should broil, steam, grill or sauté – never fry. Steer clear of fatty cold cuts, red meats and hydrogenated (hard) oils and fats.

If your primary staples currently include fast food (any burger joint will do), processed food (if it’s in a can eating is bland) and plenty of sweets, you may not be ready for drastic changes in your eating habits. But, all hope is not lost. You can gradually improve your nutrition with just a few minor substitutions.

For snacks, try:

  • half a cup of fresh, unsalted nuts
  • an apple, orange or pear
  • six black and green olives and celery sticks
  • fresh veggies, cut up finger-food style, topped with vinegar, soy sauce and olive oil
  • grilled shrimp (about a half-dozen large) with garlic on skewers. Dip in soy sauce.

Remember, what you put into your body is what you get out. Your skin will reflect the signs of a low-nutrient rich diet. However, a focus on antioxidant rich meals supported by an appropriate skin care regimen will make those eye wrinkles go away.
