Preventing skin aging from extrinsic factors is quite simple:

  • Stay out of the sun when its rays are strongest: between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m
  • Avoid tanning beds
  • If in the sun, use broad spectrum sun protection of at least SPF15 20 minutes BEFORE exposure and reapply after swimming or sweating.
  • Wear Protective clothing in the sun
  • Stop smoking
  • Avoid harsh repetitive facial expressions – placing a mirror on your desk for a couple of weeks is very informative!!
  • Give up facial exercises
  • Drink plenty of water when working in dry air conditioned environments
  • Sleep on your back!

Intrinsic skin antiaging relies on good skin nutrition. There are a number of natural nutritional supplements that boost the skins own ability to regenerate itself with elastin and collagen filled cells.

To treat the damage we do do our skin ourselves, generally requires more intensive anti-aging skin products and treatments.
