Almonds: The Best Fix For Your Wrinkles:- If you are consuming almonds on a daily basis, they will help you reduce the severity of facial wrinkles said a survey and this would be more effective in post-menopausal women. This study is claimed by a first-of-its-kind study to examine the effects of the nuts on skin health. The University of California researchers found that a daily snack of almonds improves measures of wrinkle width and severity in women. The postmenopause is the time which women experience 12 consecutive months of lack of menstruation.
The survey was published in journal Phytotherapy Research, 28 healthy postmenopausal women with Fitzpatrick skin type 1 or 2. Women who ate almonds as snacks accounted for 20% of their total calorie intake. Other than these snacks, study participants ate their regular diets and did not eat any nuts or nut-containing products. Skin assessments were made at the start, after four weeks, eight weeks, 12 weeks and 16 weeks. During these visits, facial wrinkles were captured through high-resolution cameras and validated three dimensional (3D) facial modeling and measurement.
By the end of the study, the images showed statistical improvements in their wrinkles in all the participants.
