8 Things Your Dermatologist Should Tell You!

BY MICHELLE CROUCH FOR READERS DIGEST

1. I CAN TELL WHICH WAY YOU SLEEP.

Sleeping on your side or stomach creates a furrow on one side of your face. For an easy way to minimize wrinkles, sleep on your back. You may snore, but you’ll age better.

2. IF YOU HIT THE PILLOW AT NIGHT WITHOUT WASHING, EVERY SINGLE THING YOU CAME INTO CONTACT WITH THAT DAY IS ON YOUR SKIN.

3. ANYTHING THAT MAKES YOUR SKIN FEEL SQUEAKY-CLEAN IS STRIPPING OUT ALL THE MOISTURE, AND THAT’S NOT A GOOD THING.

5. Try drugstore-brand anti-aging creams first.

Those from Olay, Neutrogena, and Aveeno have the same active ingredients and can be just as effective as products that cost four to ten times as much at department stores.

6. PLEASE, PLEASE, THROW AWAY YOUR MAGNIFYING MIRROR.

If you’re in the dry heat of Phoenix, you can drink water all day long and your skin will still be dry. If you’re in Hawaii, where it’s humid, your skin will be plumped up no matter how much water you drink.

Thinner and more athletic people over age 40 have less fat under their skin and can look older than overweight people.
