No More Wrinkles

Consumer Reports gives us 7 ways to have fewer wrinkles. Here is their list.
Use a facial moisturizer with an SPF of at least 30 to limit the sun’s damage every day, not just when you’re at the beach.

Shield your face with a hat and sunglasses when you’re outdoors, particularly on sunny days.

Avoid tanning beds. Those ultraviolet rays can be even more intense than the sun’s and can increase your risk of skin cancer.

Don’t smoke. Tobacco ranks second only to sunlight in its dire effects on skin.

Try not to rub your eyes. Treat hay fever so you’re less itchy and not tempted to rub.

Sleep on your back. Mashing your face into a pillow can cause lines to form over time.

Get an annual eye exam. If you can’t see clearly, you’re likely to squint, which can create wrinkles.

That's a good list, but we think they missed a few.

Facial moisturizers are good, but we prefer a chocolate facial mask. It's kind of like having your cake and eating it too.

CR suggest using a hat and sunglasses while outside on a sunny day. That is a good idea, but not a great one. We are partial to the middle Eastern approach to protecting your face.

While it is true that smoking can cause wrinkles, not everyone is affected in the same way.

Yes, a pillow over your face can cause wrinkles, sometimes it can lead to something worse.

So there you have it.

Enjoy a wrinkle free day!
