Tips for Young-Looking Skin

1. Don't Drink, Don't Smoke, Don't Tan!

Abstaining works. Alcohol, too much sun, cigarettes will make you look old very quickly. Ageing free radicals will run amok in the cells of your skin. You must take care.

2. Moisturize!

Keep your skin hydrated at all times!

Do not slather on greasy creams as this will not let your skin breathe.

3. Use sun block at all times

Use a separate sun block if possible, even if your foundations may incorporate Sun Protection Factor (SPF*) into the formula.

The SPF needs to be 30 or higher.

*SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor. The number is determined experimentally indoors by exposing human subjects to a light spectrum meant to mimic noontime sun. Some subjects wear sunscreen and others do not. The amount of light that induces redness in sunscreen-protected skin, divided by the amount of light that induces redness in unprotected skin is the SPF. It is mainly a measure of UVB protection and ranges from 1 to 45 or above.

A sunscreen with an SPF of 15 filters 92% of the UVB. Put another way, a sunscreen with an SPF of 15 will delay the onset of a sunburn in a person who would otherwise burn in 10 minutes to burn in 150 minutes. The SPF 15 sunscreen allows a person to stay out in the sun 15 times longer.

4. Use Illuminating or light-diffusing foundation These brighten the skin and minimize the appearances of fine lines.

5. Feed on Antioxidants

Look for creams that have antioxidants such as Vitamin C, E or green tea (for both your face and eyes).
