Wrinkles are the most frustrating part about getting older. Your body might change as you get older, but at least you can hide that. Your face is always in the open and you wrinkles show exactly how old you are.

I began to get wrinkles at a young age making me always looking older than I am. I can't imagine how young I would look without wrinkles on my face. Trust me, I have tried every cream in the book. Surprisingly, foods provide the best fix. Here are seven foods to make your skin look young again.

1. Honey.

Usually sugar is bad for you skin, but the natural sugar in honey can actually help it because even though it's sugar, it doesn't cause inflammation in your body and skin the way regular sugar does. Honey is anti-viral, and it's an antioxidant, which both of which are great for the skin. The best part is that you can choose to ingest it, or use it as a face mask.

2. Berries.

Eating berries can create cell regeneration for new skin. They also contain flavonoids, polyphenols, vitamins, probiotics, and tons of antioxidants. All of which are great for your skin.

3. Leafy greens.

Any leafy green vegetable helps keep your skin healthy and hydrated. These greens are like a super vitamin full of antioxidants. You can even drink your greens in a smoothie as an easy way to help absorb the nutrients quicker. Any leafy greens contain the antioxidants but broccoli, kale, and spinach might give you the best results.

4. Tomatoes.

Tomatoes contain a ton of Vitamin C. Vitamin C helps build collagen which makes your skin firmer. They also have lycopene, which protects your skin from UV damage and improves your vascular system. Tomatoes work so well that you will notice glowing skin after just six weeks of regularly eating them.

This next one not only gets you better skin, it can also slow down development of some cancers.

5. Avocado.

Avocado contains glutathione, which is known to have incredible anti-aging properties. This ingredient is also present in most detoxes. When it flushes toxins from your system, the glutathione helps with acne and wrinkles, and it's even been shown to slow the development of certain cancers.

The omega fatty acids in the healthy fats found in avocado are vital because they become part of the skin cell walls, which hydrates the skin from the outside in.

6. Amino acids.

A huge cause of wrinkles is the weakening of collagen and elastin in the skin, which happens as we age. Amino acids found in protein sources can help rebuild and repair damage. These amino acids can be found in meat, fish, eggs, tofu, some grains, nuts, and seeds.

7. Green tea.

That's right, green tea has even more benefits than you already knew of. Studies have shown that green tea helps cells grow properly and maintain a healthy life cycle. This is important because your cells need to regenerate correctly for your skin to stay looking young. It's the antioxidents in green tea that help our cells regenerate.
