Sunscreen: As a young person, the most important thing you can do at this point to prevent wrinkles is daily sunscreen use on your face and neck. Something with broad coverage (blocks uva & uvb), spf 30+ and contains safe sunscreens like zinc oxide and titanium dioxide. These should go on every morning before leaving the house. Laying out in the sun or using tanning beds will rapidly increase wrinkles.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.
