    I just took him as an example of someone with great skin who ate high -fat, I'm not recommending high-fat. I'd bet james iv is in a similar case. Perhaps digestive health and nutrients matter a lot more (gelatin..).

    Stabilized Aloe Vera and Centella Asiatica, regenerates skin and reduces wrinkles. I used it on my face against acne scarring, reducing pores and wrinkles.

    edit

    best to use fresh aloe gel directly from the leaf, or a stabilized version, unstabilized gel don't work well. marketing

    Wheat germ oil.

    I am in my late 40's, and developed crows feet and wrinkles around the eyes at a relatively young age after near-constant squinting, the result of light eyes which are particularly sensitive to light.

    About a month ago I started experimenting with topical wheat germ oil, with (unexpected) phenomenal results. The crows feet and wrinkles have been dramatically reduced, and my skin has acquired the kind of softness and suppleness I had back in my 20's.

    Together with sufficient hydration and adequate sleep, there is in my mind likely no better combination for taking care of your skin.

    There appears to be some scientific evidence backing up the healing and regenerative properties of wheat germ oil, e.g below:

    Comparative measurement of hydration effects of herbal moisturizers ("Comparative measurement of hydration of herbal moisturizers")

    "....Wheat germ oil is rich in Vitamins A, D and E, used for its antioxidant effects on free radicals in the skin, and is a natural preservative. It supports the skin's natural process of regeneration; aids muscle and lymph function and is particularly valuable for treating dry, aging skin. It is also used for removing stretch marks and scar tissue, and for dry rough skin. It leaves the skin very smooth by nourishing and helping to heal the skin. "

    The brand I use is Pranarom, 100% natural, bio wheat germ oil, see link below.

    Thank you for sharing your experience!:) Sometimes when the skin is dry and very dehydrated, wrinkles appear more prominent. Did you regularly moisture your skin before starting your experience?

    @Peatfan19 That vitamin content is very nice and effective but still has a lot of, 62% PUFA fats in the wheat oil. I think it is advised to stay under 4% poly unsaturated fats per solution for optimal stability against oxidation.

    Yes, I tried a wide variety of products over a long period, but none of these provided anything close to the results I find with WGO. Ironic that something so simple and cheap can be so much more effective than the obscenely priced commercial skin care products.

    Thanks for the information, would you mind providing more details of the downside of the high PUFA content of WGO when used topically? I'm keenly aware of the negative health implications of ingesting PUFA's, but is this also relevant to the topical application of a product such as WGO?

    BTW, the study I referred to earlier concluded that the most effective combination of all tested was a combination of WGO and aloe vera, which seems to provide support for your experience with aloe vera.

    The consequence of Pufa on the skin is that it can get into the bloodstream, contributing to Pufa ingestion and oxidation damage of cells. [1] The high vitamin E in Wheat Germ Oil does protect the oil against oxidation for a while at lower temperature in storage but the Vit E will get less somewhat over time, weeks of storage, and accelerated peroxidation of the fatty acids takes place more with higher storage temperatures which could be reached during import transport which raises the question of how good the quality of WGO really is that's stored in the shops.
