1. QUIT SMOKING

It’s never easy, but nicotine patches and inhalers are a great place to start if you’re having trouble.

2. ADD MORE ANTIOXIDANTS TO YOUR DIET

Antioxidants protect your skin from free radicals.

Foods with the highest antioxidant content include:
  • Berries
  • Artichokes
  • Prunes
  • Red kidney beans
  • Granny smith apples
  • Pecans
  • Cherries
  • Black plums
  • Black beans
  • Oily fish with high omega 3 fatty acid content
3. STAY HYDRATED

Try to drink two litres of water per day – especially after exercising.

If you don’t enjoy drinking water, spruce it up with fresh lemon or boost your skin’s hydration levels by drinking natural coconut water.

4. USE HIGH QUALITY ANTI-WRINKLE CREAMS

5. AVOID EXCESSIVE SUN EXPOSURE

Protect your skin from the sun by applying sunscreen or an SPF moisturiser, daily.

If you’re going to be outside for a long period of time:

Wear a hat, sunglasses, and a long-sleeved shirt
Always seek out shade
Remember to stay hydrated
If you do accidentally get sunburnt, apply a moisturising after sun lotion.

6. GET ENOUGH BEAUTY SLEEP

Try to get around eight hours of sleep per night and allow your body time to repair itself.

7. REDUCE STRESS

Try to minimise your workload or cut down on anything that stresses you out and might be causing your wrinkles. Yoga and meditation can also help.
