Weekly Tip:  Eating Vitamin C Reduces Wrinkles

I’ve used a lot of Vitamin C rich creams, but somehow it didn’t occur to me that eating Vitamin C could have a more dramatic impact on my skin.  A dermatologist friend of mine mentioned this to me, so of course I had to confirm it by “Bing-ing” “vitamin C wrinkes” (after all, what does a person I know with years of accredited medical edcuation have versus anonymous content on the world wide interweb?).

But I did find confirmation.  According to EatingWell.com, the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition analyzed data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey I (NHANES I)—a survey that asks people to quantify how often they eat various foods.  Reasearchers found that consuming plenty of vitamin C-rich foods (such as oranges, tomatoes and strawberries) was associated with “a lower risk of having wrinkled skin and age-related skin dryness in [middle-aged] women.”

I will never look at a strawberry the same way again.
