I can’t believe it’s already August! If you are a lover of warm weather like me, you have spent many days outside and have gone through at least two tubes of sunscreen. I think the majority of us are well aware of the importance of sunscreen in preventing wrinkles, but I believe what we eat is definitely overlooked.

Look to food as your wrinkle-fighting weapon of choice, by simply placing healthy choices on your plate.
