    Apparently the coffee plantations of Costa Rica are filled with coffee pickers who have sun-damaged and wrinkled faces but hands as smooth as a baby's bottom. Scientists noticed this and realized there was a powerful antioxidant in the fruit of the coffee plant that was decreasing fine lines and wrinkles, and reducing redness in the workers' hands. Now they've isolated that antioxidant and put it into a lotion that can be applied to the whole face.

    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 best ways to prevent your skin from prematurely aging are:

    1. Don't Smoke
    2. Avoid overexposure to the sun while still maintaining optimal Vitamin D levels.

    For the face, a simple skin care program using:

    1. A gentle cleanser,
    2. A good exfoliator to get rid of excess dead skin cells,
    3. A toner, and
    4. A moisturizer. 
    Stay away from alcohol-based products as they are excessively drying. Exfoliation is key because excess dead skin cells need to be removed before any moisturizer will penetrate the skin. Retinol products will also help slow the development of fine lines and wrinkles as well as brown spots.

    The genes you inherit from your parents do influence how your skin ages. If your mother had a lot of wrinkles, you may be susceptible to lines on your skin. But genes are not the only thing determining how many wrinkles you'll develop over the years. Many other factors contribute, including the environment and your personal habits.

    To limit the lines on your face and body, protect your skin from the damaging effects of the sun's rays. Wear protective clothing and hats and use sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of 30 or higher when you go outdoors. Avoid direct sunlight between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Avoiding tobacco will promote younger-looking skin, too. Talk to a dermatologist about other ways you can ward off wrinkles.

    I am in agreement with the other professionals that diet, exercise, and sleep are critical, but what about our mental health? I have seen dramatic improvements in the way my clients look and feel by gaining a stronger sense of self, confidence, and living their life authentically. We often feel tired and overwhelmed because we are not connecting with ourselves or others in a meaningful way. It is important to focus on the whole self!

    Some wrinkle creams decrease wrinkles by causing skin swelling. Any drug that promises immediate results achieves them by causing swelling. The swelling temporarily decreases wrinkles. While this may sound fine, I worry about long-term use of these drugs. Because swelling stretches the skin, repeated use can actually cause wrinkles and extra skin. The result is similar to the medical condition known as blepharochalasia, where allergies cause eyelid skin to swell repeatedly. The skin stretches and eventually needs to be removed.
