Dr. Andrew Ordon: Wrinkle Fighting Foods
Dr. Andrew Ordon said not to feel guilty about indulging in Sweet Potatoes over the holidays. One Sweet Potato has more than 400% of your body’s daily needs for Vitamin A, and 40% of your needed Vitamin C, which fight free radicals and wrinkles. He did suggest laying off the brown sugar and marshmallows.
Winter Squash is also a great source of Vitamins A & C.
The spice Tumeric can prevent sun-related skin damage.
Omega 3s in salmon moisturize your skin. One study found that eating just 5 ounces of salmon per week can lower your risk of precancerous skin lesions by 30%. Salmon is an antioxidant that is important for tissue elasticity.
The Doctors: Xeomin Wrinkle Product
Dr. Andrew Ordon & Dr. Neil Sadick were joined by patient Valerie. They discussed a new wrinkle busting product called Xeomin that is similar to Botox. Dr. Neil Sadick said that the difference with this product is all proteins are removed from this product, which theoretically means less chance for adverse effects.
Both doctors agreed that, although the product was new, they liked the results they had seen so far. I’m still not in a rush to have poisonous needles jabbed in my face. Valerie said she works in a salon and hates seeing her wrinkles in the mirror at work all day.
