Wrinkles form on the parts of your face that move the most. Underneath your top layer of skin, you have collagen -- a connecting tissue that keeps your skin layers together. As you get older, you start to lose some collagen, which causes the skin to sink and create wrinkles. To fight wrinkles, try adding a healthy dose of vitamin C into your diet.

Eat foods rich in vitamin C: lemons, strawberries, papaya and pineapple. With the help of these delicious snacks, your body will create more collagen, helping to prevent pesky wrinkles.

If you have fine lines and wrinkles, you might consider a resurfacing treatment. Skin resurfacing refers to the removal of the top layer of skin to reveal the healthier skin underneath. This is useful in treating wrinkles, scars, dark spots, and other effects of sun and aging. There are several different skin resurfacing techniques, including laser treatments, dermabrasion, and chemical peels. Your physician can help you determine the technique that is right for you.
