When it comes to nutrition, fruits have more than one trick up their sleeve. Cherry juice would fight against insomnia, blueberry would strengthen the gums (see our article Eat red fruits) and drinking lemon juice in the morning on an empty stomach would be the ally of a radiant complexion. And although some fruits have more calories than others, including them in your menu is often a good idea, as long as they are eaten as part of a balanced diet.

Eating 2 handfuls of almonds daily reduces wrinkles

And nuts are no exception. The almond, the consumption of which does not lead to weight gain as long as it is limited to 2 handfuls per day (according to a study published in the British Journal of Nutrition relayed by Christelle Ballestrero on would have, by example, real anti-wrinkle virtues. 

According to a study recently conducted by researchers at the University of California *, ingesting almonds daily as a substitute for a snack with the same caloric value (in the study a fig bar, a cereal bar, or pretzels) would significantly improve l appearance of wrinkles in postmenopausal women.

Of the 49 who participated in the experiment, a 15% reduction in wrinkles was seen after 16 weeks of consuming 2 x 30g servings of almonds each day. Likewise, the pigments of the face which make the complexion uneven were reduced by 20% in the subjects. 

"Daily consumption of almonds appears to be effective in improving the appearance of wrinkles and the uniformity of skin tone in postmenopausal women with type I or II skin (characterized by an increased tendency to burn with exposure to the sun). ) according to the Fitzpatrick scale ”says Dr. Raja Sivamani, dermatologist and principal investigator of this study, attached to the University of California at Davis.

Almond, rich in antioxidant vitamin E

A small feat that Dr. Laurence Plumey, nutritionist doctor, attributes to the high content of almonds in antioxidant vitamin E (a handful covers 60% of daily requirements), Omega-9, vitamins of group B and magnesium, and potassium. 

"It is not surprising to see a link between their regular and sufficient consumption and an optimization of the complexion and a reduction in wrinkles in these postmenopausal women," she says. It should be noted, however, that while the quality of nutritional intake is decisive in skin aging, the latter also depends on other exogenous factors, such as tobacco consumption and exposure to the sun.
