Antioxidant Best

It seems skin care antioxidants are as close as your garden. Latest research shows that the antioxidant ellagic acid helps to prevent wrinkles. Ellagic acid is found in numerous fruits, vegetables and nuts, especially cranberries, raspberries and strawberries.

Hairless mice were exposed to UV light. Half were given daily topical applications of ellagic acid on their skin and the other half didn't for eight weeks. The mice without ellagic acid developed wrinkles and thickening of the skin. The mice that received the antioxidant showed reduced wrinkle formation.
