Can a healthier diet help reduce the signs of aging?

Dr. Doris Day, MD
Dermatology
Your diet affects your skin dramatically, and improving it can help reduce the signs of aging. Only a small percentage of what you eat ends up in your skin, which means you have to pay special attention to eating only the best foods that are packed with proper vitamins, minerals, proteins, healthy fats and fiber to make it all work.
