  • Whenever you know that the sun is out, use sunscreen. If you want to slow down the extent to which wrinkles will make your skin age, you should start using sunscreen early on in life. According to reviews, sunscreen that contains zinc oxide is more effective on the skin than those with titanium dioxide content.

  • If you are outside when it is sunny, use sunscreen with SPF15 on a daily basis and if you are going to spend a great deal of time outside use sunscreen with SPF30. If you are a woman or a guy that wears makeup, make sure that you wear your sunscreen first before you use any beauty care product.

  • Many people fail to stay in the shade when it is too hot, thinking that it is good to get some vitamins that the sun ray brings. You should in fact stay in the shade whenever you see that it is too hot and also wear a hat or cap to keep your skin looking fresh.

  • Your skin can quickly become wrinkled and rough if you smoke or stay in a polluted environment.

  • Go to bed early and have enough sleep as the skin cells can only repair itself while you are sleeping.

  • Let your face be up when you sleep and not on the pillow, as this can cause wrinkles to form easily.
