Monounsaturated-fat Reduces Wrinkles

If you're looking to keep your wrinkles at bay, then start from the inside out. 

The Journal of the American College of Nutrition published a study which showed that people who had higher intakes of butter had more wrinkles than those with high intakes of olive oil. The difference between butter and olive oil is that butter is saturated fat and olive oil is monounsaturated!

Specifically, "overall, [their] finding suggest that subjects with a higher intake of vegetables, olive oil and monounsaturated fat and legumes, but a lower intake of milk/milk products, butter, margarine and sugar products had less skin wrinkling in a sun-exposed site."
