10 Anti-Aging Tips continued...

9. Consider antioxidants and peptides.

For women in their twenties, the most basic skin care routine is washing with a gentle cleanser and using a moisturizer at night, with a retinoid if needed, Waldorf says.

Day also likes serums that contain peptides and antioxidants --such as grape seed extract, resveratrol, green tea, and vitamins A, C, and E.

If you use skin products with antioxidants, Waldorf recommends applying them in the morning before using a sunscreen moisturizer. Both products may work in tandem to protect skin from damage.

10. Consider treatments for youthful skin damage.

If you have a lot of sun damage or acne scars, microdermabrasion, light peels, or laser treatments may help. These procedures can improve skin more than facials can, Waldorf says.

Also, if you have acne, don't pick at it. Scars will look like wrinkles as you age.
