Wrinkles and fine lines can begin moving in with every smile or facial expression starting as early as when you are in your 20s. Other factors that contribute to wrinkling include the loss of collagen, oil and elastin in your skin as you get older. The key to maintaining youthful-looking skin for a longer amount of time is to start practicing preventive measures as soon as possible.
Avoid Excess Sun Exposure
Some sun exposure is good. It’s necessary to get your Vitamin D. If you are going to be spending extended amounts of time outside, protect your skin with a lotion that contains SPF of at least 15. (Murad Perfecting Day Cream SPF 30)
Dead skin is shed more slowly as you get older. Get through that flaky layer and may way for fresh skin by exfoliating with a scrub made of synthetic beads at least twice a week. (Peter Thomas Roth Anti-Aging Buffing Beads)
Vitamin C is a natural antioxidant that protects from environmental harm such as the sun, which causes skin to wrinkle and sag. Invest in a facial moisturizer containing l-ascorbic acid, which is the type of vitamin C that is most easily absorbed by the skin. (Kinerase Cream)
Apply an eye cream with retinol to minimize crow’s feet before going to bed. Retinol makes skin sensitive to the sun so put it on at the end of the day. (Murad Resurgence Renewing Eye Cream)
