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.
- Red kidney beans
- Granny smith apples
- Black plums
- Black beans
- Oily fish with high omega 3 fatty acid content
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.
