Aging is worrying. Wrinkles, crinkles, skin sags, crow’s feet, and other undesirables start growing on your face and eventually end up destroying your confidence. Well, though aging is natural, you can always look younger by taking care of your diet and lifestyle and with the help of a few anti-aging solutions.

If you cannot escape from sun exposure, slap on an effective sunblock creams or lotions that contain oodles of Vitamins A, C and E and antioxidants.

Refined foods and fast foods increase the production of androgen, a hormone. Excess androgen in the body leads to excess oil in the skin and causes acne.

Protein foods are good too
