Not only do they protect your retina, a pair of shades stops you from squinting, which in the beauty world translates to crows feet around the eyes!
2. Apply sunscreen daily.
Sun damage is the biggest cause of aging. Luckily a layer of sunscreen can shield your skin from all those UV nasties which wreak havoc on your face—pigmentation, lines, wrinkles, and age spots.
3. Eat red peppers.
“Red peppers are bursting with anti-aging vitamins A and C, which are essential nutrients for repairing the skin and rejuvenating cells, which keep your complexion looking plump and youthful,” says Kim. “Try adding raw, diced red peppers to your salads to enjoy their maximum vitamin benefits.”
4. Watch your hands.
Focusing on your face is important, but other body parts can reveal your age just as easily. Creams, sunscreens, serums—if they go on your face, they go on your hands and neck, too.
5. Munch on chia seeds.
Enlist the help of super foods in your path to ageless skin! “Chia seeds are high in skin-nourishing omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants,” explains Kim. “They contain tons of fiber to help your body purge out toxins, which can amass and lead to wrinkles and visible signs of skin aging."
