1Wear sunscreen every single day

No matter how cold, cloudy or rainy it is outside, don't skip your sunscreen. Use a sunscreen or moisturizer with SPF and don't leave home without it.

2Stop smoking right now

You already know the health risks of smoking. If you still haven't stopped, you should know that smoking also causes skin damage and wrinkles. Nicotine can decreases the oxygen flow to the skin, leaving it damaged, dry and wrinkled.

3Exfoliate once a week

If you have normal, combination or oily skin, look for exfoliating prodcuts containing alpha hydroxy acids such as salicylic or glycolic acid. Exfoliate once a week to slough away dead skin cells and encourage collagen production. If you have sensitive or extremely dry skin, exfoliate every other week and look for products especially formulated for your skin type.

4Use an eye cream

Even if you don't have any signs of crows' feet yet doesn't mean they won't creep up on you. The thin skin around the eyes is one of the first spots to show the signs of agin. Protect and hydrate the area with an eye cream containing SPF, antioxidants and other nourishing ingredients.
