Vitamins A, C and E can put you ahead of the curve in the skin game. Why? Vitamin A - retinoids - reduce wrinkles, fade brown spots, and smooth the skin. Apply at night and lay off if irritations occur. Vitamin C helps fight free radicals that trigger wrinkling and sagging, smoothes and firms skin and fades brown spots. Apply in the morning as Vitamin C has inherent sun protection. Vitamin E helps retain skin moisture, promotes healing and neutralizes damaging free radicals. Look for a serum or face oil as a boost to the daily skincare routine.

This one is definitely a tough one for me.. When you consume sugar or simple carbohydrates your body breaks down these carbohydrates into glucose. In a process known as glycation, digested sugar permanently attaches to proteins. Especially vulnerable are collagen and elastin: they become stiff, weak and less supple - as in sagging skin and wrinkles. Aside from increasing the effects of aging, glycation can also exacerbate skin conditions like acne and rosacea. 

According to the American Heart Association (AHA), the maximum amount of added sugars men should consume per day is 9 teaspoons, or 6 for women. So if you see your energy drink has 34 grams of sugar, just divide it by 4 ... and you know what that means.
