Anti-Aging Eating

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.
