  1. I’m so young that I haven’t thought this in wrinkle point of view. However I’ve known that eating healthy, nutritious food will make your whole body including skin do better and stay healthier. Thank you for sharing these tips. I have one more reason to eat healthy! 🙂

    1. Prevention is always the best way. So, no matter how old you are, your eating habits may help your beauty in many ways and even delay wrinkles. 🙂

    1. Tomatoes have many things to offer to our health and our beauty. I used to think that they are not something special – I’ve been eating them all my life, so I guess I underestimated them. After researching their nutrional value, I was amazed!

  2. These are really nice foods. Not a fish gal myself. I was really hoping to read CHOCOLATE or chocolate cake. hahaha I guess it will have to be blueberries for me. 😉

    1. I happen to like fish, so I am lucky that way. As for chocolate, I am not going to lie – I can’t live without it!!! 🙂 Dark/bitter chocolate is a healthy option and its good for our health – in Greece we call it “health chocolate”!

  3. I honestly did not know that red peppers can help fight off wrinkles. I am at the stages of showing wrinkles, I think i’ll pick up a few for a salad.

    1. Many people don’t like salmon, I guess its strong taste is not welcomed from everybody. But if you are eating all the other foods, you’ll see their benefits. 🙂

  4. I never thought a minute about wrinkles until I turned 40 .. and now maintaining good skin has become a quest. I know when I’m eating whole foods .. avoiding sugar .. and getting enough sleep .. my skin glows. Anything else and it really shows!

    1. I started worrying about wrinkles at a young age, but I thought at first that beauty products is all I need. I still remember my brother’s mother-in-law saying to me “look at my skin, not too many wrinkles; it’s not the beauty cream, it’s because I ate a lot of fruits and healthy meals, when I was young”. I was in my early 20s then and it stuck with me. When I turned 30, I started researching the issue more. Now I’ve turned 40, so, as you say, everything – good or bad – shows on my skin. 🙂
