Why Do Movie Stars Always Look Like They Never Age?

How in the world does George Clooney still look like he is 40 but actually is almost 60?  He must be doing something right with his skin.  Here’s a few tips to keep looking like the Rockstar you are:

Eyes

Some say the eyes are the window to your soul, but they are also the first place you start to see signs of aging.  The skin around your eyes is thinner than the skin around the rest of your face.  Use specially-formulated eye creams to keep skin hydrated and to reduce the bagginess, and wrinkles.

Protection from the Elements

Sun

Sunscreen isn’t only meant for when you go to the beach.  The UV rays emitted from the sun are the leading cause of skin cancer and premature aging.  The sun damages your skin even if you don’t get sunburnt.

Free Radicals

Free radicals are destructive fragments of oxygen produced as a by-product.  They are created from pollution such as smog, dust and the sun.  They can damage your skin from changes in skin color from brown spots and broken blood vessels to weakened skin from damaged elastic fibers.  Free radicals an also damage your skin’s collagen and create wrinkles. 

How do we combat free radicals?  Antioxidants.  Antioxidants include Vitamin E, C, A, and Beta-carotene and are in all kinds of foods and skin creams.  Anti-aging creams and face serums will defend your skin from free radicals while improving your skin’s elasticity and collagen production.

Food

No we’re not saying you should get a private chef and go on a strict diet like Tom Brady. We found some great anti-aging foods filled with tons of vitamins and antioxidants: Watercress, red bell peppers, papayas, blueberries, broccoli, spinach, nuts, avocados and sweet potatoes to name a few.

Not all food is created equal, add fresh vegetables and healthy proteins to your diet.  Try to cut out excess sugar and carbohydrates.  Your skin will thank you.
