wrinkles and advanced aging in many people. The best thing anyone can do for their skin to keep it young and vital is to avoid direct sun exposure. Always use a sun screen with at least SPF 15. As many already know the higher the SPF the stronger the sunscreen protection. Apply the sunscreen to all exposed skin. And wear a large brimmed sun hat and sun glasses for extra protection.
Certain foods provide anti oxidant protection. Anti oxidants fight free radicals which cause damage to cells leading to aging in the body. Certain fruits like strawberries, apples, oranges, grapes, boost the bodies
anti oxidant protection.
Water plumps up the skin cells and keeps skin moist and healthy. Slows the aging process. Researchers find most people barely drink enough water to fight off dehydration during the summer. And once you feel thirsty you are probably already dehydrated. The average person needs about 8 glasses of water a day to stay hydrated.
