Having great skin is easy

OK, so you baked yourself silly in high school.Who didn't? What counts—at least in terms of looking younger—isn't so much what you used to do, but what you're doing right now. Studies show you can reverse the damage, and can actually take 10 to 15 years off your age.

You can reverse skin damage with three basic tenets, - Turn over skin cells, stimulate collagen, and add volume.

In the last 10 years, skin-care breakthroughs have made it possible to pull that off, repairing skins most vulnerable areas with targeted products and treatments.

So what gets results you can actually see at the best possible price? Many of the remedies are actually affordable and dont require a trip to the dermatologist. Get ready for smoother, softer, younger-looking skin—starting right now.

Rejuvenate your face
Its not your imagination: Your skin may still be willing, but its no longer able to bounce back quite the way it did even five years ago. With every birthday, your bodys production of collagen and elastin—two proteins responsible for skins structural support and elasticity—slows down. As a result, your skin begins to stretch, especially if youve spent a lot of time in the sun.

Bottom line: If you do nothing else to age-proof your skin, apply sunscreen each morning and a retinoid at night. Using a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher every day—no matter the weather or season—isn't just about preventing sun damage.

A study published in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology found that sunscreens also protect against free radicals—the molecules that cause aging—and the majority of the protection is thanks to the UV filters rather than antioxidants.

As for retinoids, research shows that they're the ultimate multitaskers, preventing the buildup of dead skin cells, diminishing wrinkles, and lightening sun spots. Not everyone can tolerate the vitamin-A derivative, so start with an over-the-counter retinol product and apply every other day till your skin ajusts. They move to every day use for the best results.
