NEW YORK ‚ÄĒ In his new book The Perricone Prescription, dermatologist Nicholas Perricone says salmon, blueberries and other sources of protein, carbohydrates and antioxidants will smooth the wrinkles, soften the bags and tighten the sags of aging.
But can diet really help reverse the aging process? Perricone says yes, provided those who try his method take vitamin supplements, exercise regularly -- and use his facial products.
Perricone insists anti-inflammatory foods help make the skin tauter, smoother and more radiant. One of the biggest inflammatory culprits, he says, is sugar -- and anything that converts to sugar, like pastas, breads, potatoes and other starches.
