No Sun/Tabac/Xtreme: Avoiding sun and tobacco use are two of the most important things you can do to lessen the formation of wrinkles. Repetive motion will also cause wrinkles but I am not sure this can be avoided other than by use of botulinum toxin. Repeated weight gain/loss also contributes to skin laxity and wrinkling.

Avoid oxidation: The effects of aging are due to a chemical reaction called oxidation. Sun, smoking, poor diet, stress among other things further increase oxidation. Avoiding these things will help somewhat. Adopting a lifestyle that minimizes excessive oxidation will also help to a degree but father time, like gravity always wins. Some things are unavoidable.

Many anti oxidants both in the diet and as medications are widely recommend by various physicians and practitioners. What do you advise for your patients?
