Patient discussion about rhytid

Q. What diet should I take on to reduce this excessive wrinkling? I am 34 and my skin looks much older. My facial skin is sagging. It is also very dry and dull. My face glow has reduced. Couple of years back I was healthy and I had a glowing skin and a very bright face. I have used some of the cosmetics but in vain and it exceeds my budget too. So I thought to try for good diet pattern to support my skin clarity. What diet should I take on to reduce this excessive wrinkling?

A. recovering damaged skin and collagen is not likely...sorry..but you can avoid more damage by doing a very simple thing- USE SUNBLOCK!!!
the most damaging thing to our skin is sun radiation. all those creams that supposedly protect your skin and revitalizing it- are much less affective then just using simple sun block.

Q. Are there supplements that will get rid of FINE wrinkles in the skin. I am 62 male, and starting to age.

A. I'm not really sure if they do or not, but here is a good site on how to get rid of wrinkles: http://www.getridofthings.com/get-rid-of-wrinkles.htm Hope this helps.
