I'll give you a magical and efficacious trick by Dr. cHo *put on the glasses*. Follow these easy step and stay younger. So, read carefully my dear!

Sunblock Cream in your pocket!
Exposure to the harmful ultraviolet radiation from the sun over a long period of time can give rise to many complications as early aging with appearance of wrinkles and some other skin problems including risk of skin cancer.
·       Choose a sunscreen according to your skin type with a SPF of at least 15 and use it when going out in the sun. You may have to use it more than once depending on the length of sun exposure or if you are perspiring or swimming.
·       Try to avoid the sun rays when they are strongest usually between 10.00 in the morning until 4.00 in the afternoon. Moreover protective clothing including long sleeved shirts, long pants with appropriate hats can help reduce direct exposure to the sun.

Pay attention to what you eat before wondering which skin care product you should buy amongst the wide range of products. Choose a healthy balanced diet try to include lots of fruits and vegetables, low fat dairy products, plenty of water, whole grains, nuts and lean protein. Try to avoid refined or processed carbohydrates, unhealthy fats and limit sweets. Don’t miss these skin friendly foods in your diet
·       Salmon, Snapper and other fatty fish: These fish are high in omega-3 fatty acids, the good fatty acids which help to reduce production of inflammatory substances by your body, decreases clogged pores and protects the skin from developing wrinkles. Moreover salmon gives you a soft skin with enhanced luster whereas selenium present in snapper decreases the risk of sunburn.
·       Sweet potatoes: They are rich in beta-carotene, an antioxidant which can protect your skin against the damage that sun exposure can cause.
·       Blueberries: They are a high source of antioxidants preventing skin damage caused by sun exposure.
·       Kiwi: Get vitamin C from kiwi. Vitamin C helps in collagen production and maintenance giving you a fresh, healthy and youthful skin.
·       Sunflower seeds: Rich in vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant. It slows the aging of skin.
·       Carrots, apricots, other yellow and orange fruits, spinach and other green leafy vegetables are all skin friendly.

Never Say Never for SMOKING!
Smoking can be harmful to the skin in two ways
·       It deprives the outermost layer of skin of oxygen and nutrients crucial for skin health. This occurs because of reduced blood flow as a result of narrowing of tiny blood vessels present in these layers.
·       Damage to collagen and elastic fibres responsible for the strength and elasticity of skin in addition to the repetitive use of facial muscles during smoking as pursing of lips can contribute to early aging of skin and appearance of wrinkles.

Stress? No No!
Try to manage stress in your life. Identify the sources that put you under stress and take charge of your thoughts, emotions and the way you deal with different problems. Establish a balance between work and home life. Simply managing stress as so can reduce stress related skin problems such as acne break outs and some other skin problems.
