Ever wonder how some people appear to look far younger than they actually are? “It’s hereditary” is a common refrain, but for the rest of us who are genetically just “normal” there’s good news:you can actually control or reverse premature ageing and help your skin look great.
Your skin ages too. But premature ageing can definitely be controlled and even reversed with healthy lifestyle choices.
Our beauty experts have distilled these 5 “mantras" for younger-looking skin:
Oft-repeated here on Plum Blogs, but it’s worth every repetition. Use. Enough. SPF. Skin exposed to the sun for too long ages prematurely and is also prone to other imperfections like fine lines, pigmentation and the like. Get yourself at least SPF 20 before you step out.

You may already know this-laughter is great for helping your skin (and things in general). We want you to remember that.
"You don't stop laughing when you grow old, you grow old when you stop laughing." -George Bernard Shaw
