    Women who shield their skin from the sun with a daily sunscreen look younger, have fewer wrinkles and smoother, evenly toned complexions. That’s because the sun’s ultra-violet rays are the number one culprit for damaging collagen -- the support structure of the skin.

    Use a daily moisturizer with SPF 30, which contains potent sunscreen ingredients such as avobenzone, zinc oxide or titanium dioxide, recommends David Bank, MD, director of The Center for Dermatology, Cosmetic and Laser Surgery in Mount Kisco, NY. Use it every day -- whether the forecast calls for sun or clouds. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, up to 80 percent of UV rays can pass through clouds.

    The pharmacological effects of materials such as seaweed and oatmeal, often used in face masks or peels, are unknown. Papain, an enzyme found in papaya, is helpful in sloughing off dead skin cells, but can be expensive.

    For a more youthful complexion wash with a weekly AHA at-home skin peel. Doing so will remove dead skin cells, making your skin brighter and tighter. Look for at-home peels containing glycolic acid for best results.

    Every night -- and only at night -- wash your face using an alpha hydroxy (AHA)-based cleanser. Most non-AHA cleansers don’t do a good enough job getting rid of all the dirt that’s built up on your skin throughout the day; soap and water just cleans the top layer of dirt. AHAs are gentle acids derived from fruits that actually help dissolve dirt and clumps of dead cells, clearing them away and allowing young skin cells beneath them to grow faster.
     
    You can find AHA-based cleansers in drugstores for about $10 to $15. Look for “-ic” ingredients on the product label, such as glycolic, lactic, citric, malic, or tartaric acid. Use a dime-size amount every night to clean your skin and remove makeup. Your exfoliated skin will better absorb the creams that you apply afterward, leaving you with luminous, radiant, and younger-looking skin.

    A qualified healthcare provider should be consulted before making decisions about therapies and/or health conditions. Experts and researchers report that facial exercises are not harmful or dangerous, although their benefits have yet to be proven.

    You should read product labels, and discuss all therapies with a qualified healthcare provider. Natural Standard information does not constitute medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment.

    Proponents of face training provide anecdotal reports of emotional benefits, such as a greater sense of well-being and confidence, and feeling more relaxed and less tense, as well as changes in appearance. Proponents claim that the muscles in the face can be strengthened, just like other muscles in the body. By making these muscles stronger, advocates claim it will help change a person's physical appearance. Some also claim that these exercises improve circulation, which also improves appearance. There is a lack of scientific data to support these claims.

    Only a handful of small studies have focused on physical therapy for the face as a treatment for medical conditions, such as Bell's palsy. Most conclude that exercises do not cause harm, but that the studies are too small, show weak evidence, and need to be confirmed with better-designed controlled studies.
