OK, I just learned that as you age your skin begins to dry out. I guess that I really never thought of it. Apparently, you can head off that drying out process by eating more fish, avocados, olives and walnuts. Any foods that have omega-3 and omega-9 fatty acids and monounsaturated fats will do the trick. Vitamin D decreases wrinkling of the skin so eat more broccoli, papaya and kiwi. Oysters are high in zinc and help keep your skin plump and firm. I guess these tips fall under the category of keeping you looking youthful. Other suggestions for keeping that youthful appearance would be to moisturize daily and sleep 6 1/2 to 8 hours a night. Getting old seems to be getting tougher and tougher.
