This is probably one of the hardest things to do especially if you have been smoking all your life. Smoking affects the skin in a negative way. Smoking damages the skin’s elastin and collagen, hastening the process of wrinkling and sagging. Cigarette smoke also affects your blood vessels and constricts them, slowing down the growth and production of cells.
This one is a no-brainer. Free radicals in the body damage and eventually kill cells. By eating foods that have antioxidants, free radicals are neutralized. The intake of foods that are rich in antioxidants reduces the chances of free radicals damaging cells, including your skin cells. You can get antioxidants from cold-water fishes, fruits, and vegetables.
Avoid too much sun exposure
The sun has damaging effects to your skin, which is known as photoaging. It destroys collagen and reduces the ability of the body to produce collagen. Use a sunblock with an SPF of 15 or more. It also helps to cover the skin by wearing the appropriate clothing.
