I haven’t heard of that. Doesn’t mean it’s false, but in all the articles I’ve seen on flax I’ve never seen anything relating to it’s use for wrinkles.
It would be nice if it could be absorbed through skin for nutritional purposes, though. The only reason I never used it is that seasoned body builders and powerlifters alike have trouble choking it down. John Berardi (a nutritional god among men, if I’ve not mentioned him before) recently wrote, “I use plain flax oil either in shakes or straight from a spoon — both ingestion methods allow me to quickly down this rather unpalatable liquid. I don’t like the plain version in salads as it just prolongs the agony.” For the time being, I’ll take my chances without it. 😉
