We all know to age gracefully you should minimize your exposure to the sun and other UV light (always wear sunscreen!) and avoid cigarettes and alcohol consumption, but why? The sun breaks down collagen, leaving you with wrinkles and cigarettes and alcohol robs your body of vitamin C, among many other nasty side effects. Vitamin C is the number one antioxidant that keeps our skin youthful by boosting collagen production.
What’s the best secret to keeping your skin youthful and toned? Easy, exercise regularly and eat a healthy diet, rich with colorful fruits and veggies.
