1. Consume Anti-Oxidants:

Make sure you consume a lot of anti-oxidants like vitamin c, q10, alpha-lipoic acid. Vitamin C is considered to be the most powerful anti-oxidant, which helps your skin in a lot of ways. Green tea is another popular antioxidant, which is believed to be as good as vitamin C.

2. Avoid Excess Exposure to Sun:

Skin experts believe that exposure to sun is the main cause of wrinkles and skin-aging. The best ways to avoid the effect of the sun is to wear a sunscreen or cover your face while heading outside.

3. Drink Lots of Water:

If your skin doesn’t get proper hydration it may lead to excessive wrinkles making your skin look old. In order to stay moist and elastic, your skin needs constant supply of water.

4. Get Adequate Sleep:

If you aren’t sleeping enough, your body starts producing excess cortisol – a hormone that breaks down skin cells. Get enough rest and you’ll produce more HGH (human growth hormone), which helps skin remain thick, more elastic and less likely to wrinkle.

5. Anti-Aging Creams Also Help:

While following all of the above, you can also resort to using anti-aging creams. In this fast-paced life, our skin starts to age prematurely and these anti-aging creams can really help.
