It’s still a long way before experts find the real “fountain of youth” (or if there will be one), but when it comes to keeping wrinkles and fine lines away, there are many things you can do. This can be a change of habit or with the help of an expert.

Whether naturally or through cosmetic treatments, here are some methods you might want to consider to get a younger-looking and more radiant skin:

Be Serious About Sun Protection.

Nothing ages your skin more than sun exposure. Yes, stress is only second to sun exposure when it comes to damaging your skin. There is often a misconception that Asian skin has more built-in sun protection because of their higher pigmentation.

Whether you have dark or light skin, you should always put on sunscreen during the day, even when the sky looks gloomy. You can also use other sun protection methods like hats, sunglasses, and umbrellas — anything to keep the damaging UV rays away.

Consider Cosmetic Surgery.

At a certain age, there are wrinkles and fine lines that could get some help from surgical procedures, such as Botox and Juvederm. Dr. Leslie Gerstman and other experts noted that these cosmetic treatments had been proven safe and effective. Moreover, they do more than simply getting rid of wrinkles and fine lines. For instance, Botox can help in managing migraine, while Juvederm can help lift sagging facial skin.

Quit Smoking, Seriously.

Your bad habits will catch up with you, eventually. Many studies have linked smoking to several health conditions. Apart from cancer, smoking has a link to dental problems, skin conditions, and other adverse health effects that are highly preventable. There are also studies that linked heavy smoking with the development of wrinkles and fine lines. Of course, the effects don’t happen in an instant, but bad skin could well be in your future if you don’t cut the habit.

Many people would do anything to keep their skin looking younger and more radiant. Some go to lengths by trying cosmetic surgeries, while others choose the more natural route. Whichever path you take, one thing is for sure — you have to choose which suits you.
