While you can’t stop Father Time, you can make these everyday changes to improve your overall health. There are certain universal truths in life, the most obvious of which are: the sun rises from the east, humans don’t deserve dogs, and everyone ages except for Jennifer Lopez. I have nothing else to say about those first two, but I do have some tips pertaining to the third. There’s no way to get around the fact that you have to get older, but the American Academy of Dermatology AAD, a group of over 20, board-certified dermatologists, has insight into how you can prevent some of the noticeable the signs of aging, and they boil down to simple lifestyle changes. The AAD explains there are two types of aging, intrinsic and extrinsic. Intrinsic is the aging your genes dictate, while extrinsic is the type of premature aging caused by lifestyle and environmental factors, which we have a hand in. First and foremost, you should be wearing sunscreen every single day. Even on cloudy days and while sitting on airplanes, you’re susceptible to harmful rays that can lead to wrinkles, sun spots, and skin cancer. If you don’t have a daily sunscreen, here’s our list of the best sunscreens. This should be intuitive, but if getting tanned or burned by the sun quickens the aging process, so does tanning in artificial beds or by using other similar technology.

According to top nutritionist and skin specialist Karen Fischer, all that time, effort and expense could be completely wasted if you kick off your day with a slice of buttered toast or plan to end it with a pan-seared steak. While we have long known that sun damage and cigarette smoke speed up skin ageing, dermatologists have recently pinpointed the biggest ageing trigger of all — destructive molecules called Advanced Glycation End products or AGEs. Top nutritionist and skin specialist Karen Fischer has designed a day diet to a youthful appearance. Picture posed by model. As we revealed in our Sugar Detox series earlier this year, too much sugar in the blood causes glucose molecules to attach to the proteins in collagen the glue that holds your skin together to form AGEs. These sticky brown compounds stiffen the otherwise elastic fibres in the skin, creating lines, blotches and wrinkles. But sugar is far from the only ageing culprit in our diet. Rather than calorie counting, we should be AGE-counting — consuming no more than 5,, kilounits kU a day Western diets contain an average of 15, But dark- purple and red fruits and vegetables, such as purple sprouting broccoli, red cabbage, beetroot, aubergines and berries, contain powerful antioxidants called anthocyanins that help protect against AGE-formation. Eat several portions a day and swap green salad leaves for purple ones, white onions for red onions, and rice for red quinoa.
