Bad News: Sushi Gives You Wrinkles!



According to the new book, Forever Young, by dermatologist Nicholas Perricone, eating the right foods can make you look years younger.....BUT, foods that are WHITE (like rice, pasta, white bread, etc) can cause cell inflammation that eventually wrinkles your skin. While you're pondering a future without sushi or lasagna.....here is a list of 5 foods that will make you look younger:
(Hmmmm....maybe if I have SALMON sushi, it will cancel out the rice?)

1. Sweet Potatoes

Beta-carotene, which makes these tubers orange, balances your skin's pH, helps combat dryness, and promotes cell turnover, all resulting in smoother skin.

2. Wild Salmon

The pigment that makes the fish pink, astaxanthin, is a powerful foe of free radicals, rogue molecules that damage cell membranes and DNA and cause skin to age. A study found that eating one serving every five days can prevent actinic keratoses—ugly rough patches that are precancerous.

3. Tomatoes

The fruit's red pigment, lycopene, is a potent antioxidant that shields skin from sun damage—like sunscreen, but from the inside out. To best absorb lycopene, eat tomatoes with olive oil.

4. Citrus Fruits

Vitamin C is essential to building collagen, a vital component of young-looking skin, which starts breaking down in your twenties. Citrus also contains bioflavonoids, which protect skin from UV rays and help prevent cell death.

5. Leafy Greens

Spinach, kale, and other greens contain lutein, which protects skin from sun-induced inflammation and wrinkles.
