    Premature aging of the skin can be caused by the accumulation of toxins in the body, which ultimately deposit in the skin. This is a result of undigested food that accumulates in the stomach overnight due to poor digestion or excessive stress. The key to maintaining a youthful complexion is the regular removal of these digestive impurities before they damage the DNA in the skin cells. There is a simple tea that removes digestive toxins. The recipe is below:

    Boil four to five cups of water in the morning. Add the following ingredients to the water and continue to let it boil for about five minutes longer with the lid on.
    • half a teaspoon of whole cumin seeds
    • half a teaspoon of whole coriander seeds
    • half a teaspoon of whole fennel seeds
    Strain out the seeds and pour the tea into a thermos. Drink small sips of the tea throughout the day. If the tea is too strong, reduce the amount of seeds to a quarter teaspoon for two weeks and then increase it back to a half teaspoon.

    You can conceal bruising and redness from anti-aging treatments by doing the following:

    • Stock up beforehand on a good concealer to make bruising disappear. I find Laura Mercier’s Secret Camouflage is great for covering up small stuff.
    • Some laser treatments create eggplant-colored bruises and the only thing that will cover those is DermaBlend. It’s been around forever because it does an amazing job. Just get it ahead of time and practice a couple of times to get the hang of blending it.
    • If your treatment is more likely to leave redness than anything else (ask your doctor), go to any drugstore and buy a green-tinted concealer; it takes the red out.

      Most of the physical signs of aging such as wrinkles, stooped posture, stiff and achy joints, obesity and poor vision are brought on prematurely by environmental factors and the practice of particular bad habits. This means that unless genetically programmed to do so, many of the cells of your body are not intended to degenerate until very late in life—if at all. Excessive alcohol consumption, cigarette smoking, pessimism, anger, impatience, pollution, excessive exposure to sunlight, inactivity, prolonged exposure to stressful situations, and poor nutrition all lead to cellular damage that starts and accelerates the aging process.

      Scour your drugstore for products containing antioxidants that have been around for longer and are therefore cheaper, including:
      • Isoflavones from soy extract;
      • Catechins from green-tea extract;
      • Vitamins A, C, and E;
      • Vitamin B3 products.

      Some studies suggest that specific nutrients may help prevent wrinkles. For instance, in one 2007 study, scientists found that women who consumed lots of foods rich in vitamin C, such as citrus fruits, had the fewest wrinkles and best overall skin appearance. The finding does not prove, though, that vitamin C fights wrinkles. It could be that women who consume high amounts of vitamin C tend to have other skin-protecting habits, such as wearing sunscreen and avoiding tobacco.

      Much more remains to be learned about the relationship between diet and wrinkles. As a rule, eating a well-balanced, nutritious diet is a smart strategy for healthy skin. See a dermatologist to discuss steps you can take to keep your skin youthful-looking.
