We blame the sun for wrinkling because the skin cells produce more free radicals
when exposed to UV rays from the sun. The UV rays also quickly deplete natural levels of coenzyme Q10, an
antioxidant responsible for controlling free radical production.
To help prevent wrinkles, you can wear a
large hat that shades your face and sunglasses to protect the delicate skin around the eyes. You can wear
a broad spectrum zinc oxide sun block on days when you expect to spend extended amounts of time in the
But, you have to remember that the sun is also our friend. If we avoided the
sun entirely or wore sun block every day, we would quickly become vitamin D deficient. Among other things,
vitamin D is partly responsible for bone and joint strength.
Lots of "experts" recommend that your daily face creams should contain sun
screening compounds to prevent face wrinkles. The problem is that some of the organic and synthetic sun

that are responsible for the skin's moisture content.
Kelp is rich in a number of different vitamins and minerals. Wakame, a
specific kind of kelp, has been shown to prevent face wrinkles, in a different way.
Facial creams that contain wakame extract prevent the breakdown and loss of
hyaluronic acid in the skin. Hyaluronic acid is one of the proteins responsible for the skin's firmness and

ones that you already have. It has been clinically proven to do so.
Some foods, mostly vegetables, have natural anti-inflammatory activity. They
