    Your first step is to educate yourself. You should look for products that contain salicylic acid, AHA (alpha-hydroxy acid), or papaya-based enzymes to help exfoliate and remove unwanted cells. Your next step is to focus on rebuilding and hydrating your skin. Compounds containing tretinoin will work towards improving collagen synthesis. Last, and most importantly, your daily skin care regimen needs to contain sunblock. Sun damage and smoking are the primary causes of premature aging.
