What's the secret to youthful skin? It all starts with healthy lifestyle habits and choosing a few good skin care products.
A good practice to begin immediately slap on some sunscreen! Why? The single biggest factor of why skin ages prematurely is sunlight.
What else can we do to combat aging skin? Drink plenty of water to nourish and plump up the skin, and eat lots of fruits and vegetables which are high in antioxidants and foods rich in vitamins E and A.
Dr. Bergquist says wash your face and apply moisturizer in the morning and at night. During the day also use sunscreen and an anti-oxident cream such as one containing vitamin E. Our skin naturally has anti-oxidents, but they can get exhausted by all the pollutants and sunlight as well as tobacco smoke.
Exfoliate twice a week with products containing alpha hydroxy acid and glycolic acid, and at night apply the gold standard for anti-aging: retinoic acid orretin-A, but not if you're pregnant.
It can reduce the fine wrinkles as well as the deeper wrinkles, and it increases the thickness in the top and middle layers of the skin.
