The Wrinkle Cure Diet, created by Dr. Perricone, is a 28 day extension of the 3 day face lift diet both of which improve the quality of your skin as well as your overall health. The entire program begins with the 3 day facelift that jumpstarts the program and allows you to see some of the results possible with this diet. The next 25 days then continue with a diet that is slightly less restricted to enhance the original results while beginning effects that can easily last a lifetime.
Dr. Perricone developed this diet to battle what he feels are the main factors in the deterioration of youthful skin. The UV rays from the sun dry out your skin and causes the collagen and elastin to become weak and brittle. Toxins absorbed into your skin from the environment inhibit your skin’s ability to regenerate properly. These pollutants will also build up on the surface of the skin clogging pores causing inflammation as well as making it difficult for the body to shed loose skin cells. Finally, free radicals, given off naturally from your body when it uses oxygen further the devastating effects on your skin.
The Wrinkle Free diet uses a combination of essential fatty acids, antioxidants, and anti-inflammatory nutrients to battle the many different causes of aging and wrinkled skin. It also eliminates foods that Dr. Perricone believes cause damage to healthy skin. In order to do this, the 28 day diet is full of foods such as raw fruits, vegetables, salmon, and nuts. Supplements and specialized skin products are also recommended, but not necessary.
In this diet, wild salmon should be consumed a minimum of once every day. This is because it contains high levels of the antioxidant DMAE that is said to have the same effects on your skin as botox. DMAE also increases the amounts of acetylcholine that improves the movement of your muscles as well as their ability to contract. Raw and unprocessed vegetables, nuts, oatmeal, and fruit are the best source of antioxidants since cooking often destroys them. For variety, foods such as poultry and brown rice can be added into your diet.
What you will not be able to consume are any foods that are processed or are not part of the low glycemic food list. This means that starches such as white bread and sugary, complex carbohydrates like sweet treats are out. Other foods on the list of off-limit foods include potatoes, margarine, sauces, and greasy foods like French fries and hamburgers. For drinks, soft drinks, caffeine, and whole milk are also eliminated.
So there you go.
The Wrinkle Cure diet sounds difficult, but after a short period of transition, it is fairly easy to follow. Some people find the diet so pleasant and easy to follow that they adapt their diet permanently so they can enjoy the youthful and healthy results from this diet. To boost the effects of the diet, add skin care products and vitamin supplements rich in antioxidants and omega-3, and you’ll see results in no time.
