Sunscreen, lots of water, good sleeping habits, exercise and TONS of antioxidants. Just look at Pierre, the man doesn't have a wrinkle in sight, and he gets bunches and bunches of antioxidants in his diet.

Having good genes to start with helps too...

Definately did not know that. I'll be sure to look for these. Are UVA rays the ones that cause freckles and sunspots? Because I have freckles and I'd like to give them a chance to fade. But I just get more and more and I suppose it's because there aren't even ingredients blocking the UVA rays. I'm VERY fair skinned and try to stay out of the sun as much as possible to avoid freckling even more, but it's kind of hard.

And please be aware that the SPF factor of a sunscreen only refers to the UVB (burning) rays, not UVA (aging) protection. It's better to get a lower SPF and have a UVA blocking ingredient, than have a high SPF but only be blocking UVB.

Oh! You just answered a question I had on another thread here! Thanks for posting this info, it is very good to know! I had just heard about sunscreens not really being *broadsprectrum*, so I am glad this subject came up!

I have freckles too and they multiply even when I sit in the shade on a sunny day! So, the UVA rays are to blame for this? Forgive my ignorance.

I'm not sure which kind of ray causes freckles, or whether both do. Sorry!

Glad you're all finding the information useful.

Don't smoke - Stay out of the Sun - Drink Plenty of Water - Exfoliate, Don't use soap on face.

What does soap on the face do?

And I don't use sunscreen, though I did put jojoba on my face in the dry Mineiro climate (and do here sometimes too). Keeping your skin elastic is essential; IIRR silicon and sulfur help with that, as does moisture.
