6. Not focusing on the eyes One of the telltale signs of aging, particularly in men, are lines and wrinkles around the eyes. While genetics have a lot to do with the aging process, that doesn’t mean you have to totally surrender. If you want to reduce the appearance of crow’s feet around your eyes and prevent their onset, you need to use a high-quality cream or gel. There are lots of products to choose from. We use Neostrata because it targets the delicate eye area, helping to diminish puffiness, bags, dark circles and un- sightly wrinkles. 7. Drinking too much alcohol Having an occasional drink is OK. But if you drink too much alcohol, you unintentionally age your skin that can make you look far older than your true years. That’s because alcohol robs your body of vitamins and nutrients that help to promote elasticity and collagen growth. While there are no hard and fast rules, many skin experts suggest modera- tion with alcohol. Instead of having a glass of wine each night, why not drink water instead? You’ll be doing your skin a favor and you’ll also help to pro- mote a more youthful, attractive appearance. 45
