What lifestyle and diet changes could make a difference? 

Over time we inevitably lose volume in our faces, via fat, muscle and bone changes. A healthy diet with antioxidants, stopping smoking reducing alcohol and stress and wearing an effective sun screen can dramatically reduce these extrinsic ageing factors. Twin studies increasingly show that these external variables can be more important than genetics in how our skin ages.

Smoking like sun exposure causes free radical damage. This damage causes the up-regulation of enzymes such as MMP-1 that breakdown collagen and elastin. There is increasing evidence now that pollution particularly in conjunction with UV exposure causes skin ageing. Topical and oral antioxidants can help to protect against free radical damage from the above. A diet rich fruit and vegetables will supplement our bodies natural antioxidant defenses. Yellow and orange peppers for example contain carotenoids which are powerful antioxidants, while tomatoes contain lycopene that protect against sun exposure and avocados contain high levels of vitamin E, an important skin antioxidant.
