If there’s anything you should learn about fighting those signs of aging, it’s prevention. Prevent lines, spots, sagging, etc and push off your date with time by taking certain measures early on. Signs of aging start their course years before they actually show on the surface, so it’s vital to start before they even become apparent. Slathering serums and creams may lighten spots or lines but short of surgery, it won’t erase them. Start as early as your early 20’s…or as soon as now! Try our 21 Most Important Rules to Follow to Avoid Premature Aging.
1. Reduce Sun Exposure
UV rays wreck havoc on the cellular structure of your skin. Look into UV studies done with twins and you’ll see the stark difference between how aged their skin looks. A little ultraviolet light benefits the body and stimulates production of vitamin D, which we all need in order for our bones to absorb calcium and remain strong. But too much and your skin cells will burn, causing spots and loosening of the skin. Avoid sitting out in the sun for long periods of time, even if you use sunscreen.
