Daily consumption of a large amount of almonds was shown to slightly reduce the severity and width of wrinkles in a 4-month study of postmenopausal women. However, the way in which the study was conducted does not rule out possible similar benefit from other nuts.

It seems as though they should have fed the "placebo" group something with a similar nutritional profile to the almond. For example, pistachio nuts -- not a low-fat, high-carbohydrate, meal. Maybe it wasn't the almonds, but the added fat, 60g of almonds have about 28g of total fat.
