Cut down on the sugar. Processed sugar can actually contribute to the breakdown of collagen, making your skin dull and less taut. Youthful skin vs. that extra chocolate bar, the choice is yours.
Take an omega fatty acid supplement if you’ve got dry or acne-prone skin. Whether it’s flax seed or fish oil, fatty acids help keep your skin’s lipid barrier healthy.
Get enough vitamin C, either straight from the foods you eat or in supplement form. It’s known to help slow down cell damage, keeping your skin less prone to pigmentation issues and wrinkles.
Cool down your shower and take shorter soaks. Don’t freeze yourself out, but using tepid or warm water, although less satisfying than a hot shower, is actually better for your skin’s hydration levels and can help prevent inflammation. It might sound counterintuitive, but all that water actually dehydrates you.
