Have you heard you can eat away wrinkles with foods that help your body make more collagen? Sorry, that's a myth. Berries, bell peppers, broccoli, and other vitamin C-rich foods can boost your supply of this important protein. But they won't erase signs of aging. That's because the collagen you get from your diet doesn't go straight to your skin like an injectable filler would.

The upside-- healthy eating habits may help you develop fewer signs of aging. Cut back on sugar and you may protect the collagen you already have. Fill up on vitamin C foods and you might get fewer new wrinkles. Your skin may thin less, too.
