Aging is just a fact of life. Over time we all can develop thinner facial skin, lack of skin elasticity, fine lines, wrinkles, and perhaps age spots.

Our lifestyle and skincare can play a large role in how fast our skin ages. If you are worried about premature skin aging, try out a few of the following tips to get ahead of skin aging.

While there is no overnight miracle treatment, consistent care of your skin will help you in the long run.

#1 Use daily sun protection

You’ve heard it all before - the consequences of unprotected skin can result in sun damage. UV damage can speed up the aging process.

It’s a big culprit when it comes to prematurely aging. Dermatologists suggest wearing sunscreen every day, even if you’re not planning on sunbathing. Wearing an SPF 30 daily will help protect you from damaging UV rays.

#2 If you smoke, stop

Smoking can cause a laundry list of unwanted health consequences - and prematurely aging skin is one of them. If you smoke and want to keep your skin looking young - skip the smokes, friend.

#3 Keep your skin well moisturized

Dry skin appears dull, lifeless, and fine lines are more visible when the skin is dry. Keep your skin well moisturized with lotions or creams that include super hydrator, hyaluronic acid.

#4 Use an anti-aging retinoid

It’s never too early to begin a retinoid routine. If you’re trying to combat skin aging, retinoids are about to become your new best friend. These anti-aging mainstays help promote collagen production and aids in rapid skin cell turnover.

#5 Use mild cleansers

Learn to be gentle with your skin. Your skin is composed of layers that require protection from the elements. Over stripping your face with harsh cleansers or scrubs could contribute to prematurely aging skin.

#6 Eat a balanced diet

A balanced diet containing adequate protein, fat, fiber, vitamins and nutrients is necessary to keep your skin looking its best. The skin is our largest organ. What we consume can directly affect our overall skin health. Nourish yourself with good food, and your skin will thank you.  

#7 Don’t forget your hand care

While the eyes are the windows to the soul, the hands are the age truth-tellers. If you spend years using anti-aging products on your face but skip your hands -- they might be singing a different tune. Make sure to keep your hands exfoliated, moisturized, and protected from the sun.
