Key = Protection: First and foremost you should protect your skin from damaging ultraviolet rays (ie the sun, tanning booths). Spf creams that are 15+ in addition to sun protective clothing (hats, sunglasses) are the mainstay of protection. Maintaining a healthy diet, good hydration, and avoiding smoking will also help. A daily skin care regimen with anti-oxidants and gentle cleansers can go a long way as well.

Easy things 1st: The most effective things anyone can do are sun protection (sun block - SPF 15 and above), moisturizer, avoiding smoking, and appropriate clensing. Doing the above on a routine basis will have great results.

Several Ways: Thorough cleansing without drying is important on a regular basis. You should also do exfoliation two to three times per week. After cleansing or exfoliating, moisturizing is essential. Quality skin care products also provide alpha-hydroxy acids to achieve a chemical exfoliation/peel as well. The most important thing, however, is avoidance of uv exposure. Use sunscreen daily.
