How to prevent (and fade) wrinkles.

Some wrinkles suit a certain age, while others make you look prematurely past your prime. Preventing wrinkles and fading the ones you've already acquired is all about sun protection and collagen production. Here's your guide to flipping Father Time the finger.

Wrinkle-proof your skin

The breakdown
  1. Wear sunscreen. Every day.

    90% of wrinkles are the result of sun exposure. Yes, ninety. per. cent. But don't slather on the Banana Boat every day, get a quality moisturizer equipped with at least SPF 15—it'll block 93% of those damaging UV rays while providing other benefical nutrients.

  2. Don't skip your PM regimen.

    Once you hit 30, you start to lose about 1% of the collagen in your skin every year. Less collagen means more wrinkles. Ready for good news? There are night creams and serums that help jumpstart collagen production in your skin, helping to limit and reverse the appearance of wrinkles.

  3. Wash your face properly.

    That means using the right cleanser (we'll help you find it). Many cleansers are harsh and overdrying—and dry skin looks older than hydrated skin.

Quick tips:
Use SPF moisturizer every day.
Use a powerful night cream.
Don't use bar soap on your face.
Wrinkle-proof your skin.
