Here are the things you can do on a daily basis to prevent wrinkle formation -

1. Apply sunscreen before going out in the sun. Wear sunglasses to protect the delicate area around your eyes.

2. Do not smoke. Smoking releases enzymes that break down collagen and elastin that are very important for skin to remain elastic and wrinkle free.

3. Eat fruits and vegetables. Fruits and vegetables have properties that help to prevent damage to the skin cells.

4. Moisturizers help to keep the skin hydrated and wrinkle free. Remember to use a moisturizer on a daily basis.

5. Washing your face many times will strip your skin of essential oils that keeps the skin hydrated, smooth, without any wrinkles. 

6. Cocoa drinks help to keep wrinkles away because they have two flavanols called catechin and epicatchin that protects your skin from the sun, improves blood circulation to the skin and helps to keep your skin healthy, smooth and wrinkle free.

7. Sleep well to prevent wrinkle formation. When you do not get enough sleep, your body produces a hormone known as "cortisol" that breaks down skin cells and causes wrinkle formation.

8. Exercise regularly. Exercising helps to deliver important nutrients, oxygen and healthy fats to the skin that helps your skin fight off wrinkles.

9. Learn to relax and try to avoid stress. Stress releases hormones in the body that destroy skin cells and lead to wrinkle formation.

10. Drink water and keep yourself hydrated. Water keeps your skin smooth and helps to retain the elasticity of your skin.

11. Use mild soaps that are not harsh on your skin or use a gentle face wash. Pat your skin dry gently.

12. When removing makeup, use gentle makeup removers that do not damage your skin cells.

13. Take extra care of the delicate skin around your eyes. Skin cells around your eyes break easily and cause wrinkles.

Take proper care of your skin everyday and keep wrinkles away.
