Anti-Aging Hacks That Take Years Off Your Face

1. Stop free radical damage.

You will often see advice about avoiding overexposure to the sun and cigarette smoke. They say that those things contribute to an aged appearance. In truth, those things cause molecular damage, called free radical damage, which is one of the causes of cellular aging, throughout the body. Stopping free radical damage may not reverse wrinkles, but if you make an effort to protect your skin from sunlight and cigarette smoke, you will slowly but surely start to see a more youthful appearance.

2. Remember to get a good night’s sleep.

Getting a good night’s sleep could be effective for reversing wrinkles. Studies have shown that interrupting a person’s sleep, especially between the hours of 11pm and 3am makes people look older the next morning. It is also known that the body produces hormones that contribute to skin growth during those hours. So, go to be early, tonight.

3. Avoid habitual facial expressions, when possible.

No one wants to walk around with a robotic expression. But, some habitual facial expressions are avoidable. Squinting, for example, is either caused by bright light or poor vision. If you squint, get your eyes examined and use sunglasses for the protection that they provide. Botox injections are effective at reversing wrinkles, because they relax tiny facial muscles, but if you stop squinting, you won’t need the needle.

4. Eat fish.

Fish provides protein, which is a necessary building block for human skin, essential fatty acids, which nourish and protect, and unique antioxidants that fight free radical damage. Stimulating the production of new skin cells with protein helps reverse wrinkles. Eating more antioxidants prevents those new cells from being damaged.

5. Eat complex carbohydrates and avoid simple ones.

Just like dietary fats, all carbohydrates are not the same. We need them to survive, but research has shown that simple carbohydrates (white bread, potatoes, junk food, sugar) contribute to aging. Eating more fruits, vegetables and whole grains may be effective for reversing wrinkles. Some studies have shown improvement in the skin’s structure and firmness after six months of a diet rich in complex, not simple, carbohydrates.

6. Wash gently.

Exfoliating is supposed to help reverse wrinkles. It might make a temporary improvement in your appearance, but is causes irritation and inflammation. Inflammation causes degradation of the skin’s collagen fibers, which means more sagging, less firmness and more lines.

7. Use a good moisturizer.

After every bath or shower, any time that you clean your face, follow up with a good moisturizer. Some of them contain ingredients that are proven effective for reversing wrinkles. The antioxidant coenzyme Q10 is an example, but it must be properly formulated in order to penetrate deeply.
