Less Sun The Better: Limit exposure to full sun to 30 minutes a day; preferably expose before 10am or after 2pm; otherwise wear a hat, long sleeves; reapply sunscreen every 2-4 hours when outdoors, once if driving; use SPF 30; moisturize in am and at night (lots of good product for that); eat foods with lots of antioxidants in them (green veggies,berries, fruits, etc). If you are a tanning freak, you're on your own..

Agreed! Excellent advice given above. Sun damage is cumulative and reduces skin elasticity over time. Maintaining optimum collagen matrix is the key to prevent collapse, causing wrinkling.Make sure to get your beauty rest 8 hours/night, hydration/day (6-8 glasses/day) to flush toxins. Eat enough Vitamin C rich foods, Vitamin E , K, A, D3 (fat soluble vits) & good fats (nuts, avocados, coconut oil.
