    YES!!!! what you put in the inside shows on the outside....the texture of your skin has a lot to do with how you nourish it inside.......I do not drink soda...lots of water and I try to rarely eat fried foods or refined sugars....I do cheat yes...But rarely....I am so obsessed with my diet and working out I scare me at times....When I eat bad it shows on my skin, my hair, my nails etc....

    It's like if you put bad gas in your car it will run horrid...same with your body

    the biggest culprit is not drinking enough water
    Chances are, I'm correcting the typos above as you read this...

    Re: How to look younger?

    Tish is absolutely right! Cutting out sugar keeps me from getting breakouts! Of course I cheat. A lot. The better you eat the better you will look. Drinking tons of water helps a lot, you need a lot more than you would think. It's about 1 ounce of water for every 2 pounds you weigh. Some of what makes you look older may also be genetic and how you take care of your skin as well.

    Another 3 things that are bad for the skin and premature aging are smoking, drinking and tanning! These can be just as important as the foods that you are eating for maintaining healthy & younger looking skin.

    Water is great to help flush out the toxins for when we cheat on our healthy diets...like we all do sometimes!

    Not only is good food vital for good skin, but also supplements/vitamins.

    Taking a good quality supplement brand will totally give your skin new life. Also adding fish oil (omega 3) will fight off acne. But make sure the fish oil is well filtered.

    The Main Cause Of Looking aged is the Presence Of Wrinkels on The Face in Early age So Try to Include Proper Green Leafy Vegetabels and Fruits in Your Diet Here I'm Mentioning You Some Of The Wrinkels Fightening Food:

    Wrinkle-Fighting Foods
    =======================
    Foods that are high in antioxidants help counteract a decrease in collagen, elasticity and firmness in aging skin.

    Tomatoes are an excellent wrinkle prevention food because they contain lycopene, a substance that also decreases the risk of developing cancer. Red peppers have loads of Vitamin A and Vitamin E, as well as bioflavonoids, which moisturize and heal the skin. Beets and carrots (and other red and dark orange vegetables) are also great foods to consume if you want to prevent wrinkles.

    Also rich in antioxidants, kale also contains iron that helps bring oxygen to the skin and vitamin A that wards off premature aging. Blueberries are another excellent source of antioxidants.

    Salmon contains a high amount of omega-3 fatty acids that reduces inflammation and lubricates the skin.

    It's also important not to smoke and to drink four to six glasses of water a day in order to keep your skin looking young and wrinkle free.

    Sunscreen
    =========
    Proper skin care is central to in the prevention of lines and wrinkles.

    UVA and UVB exposure causes 90% of all symptoms of premature skin aging, including wrinkles.

    While sunscreen is a woman's best weapon against developing wrinkles, most women don't apply enough, apply it frequently enough or use a high enough level of UV protection.

    Most people apply only 25 to 30% of the recommended amount of sunscreen. Sunscreen should be applied liberally, and should cover all parts of the body, including ears, hands and feet.

    Sunscreen should be applied every two to four hours. Experts recommend using sunscreen with protection against UVA and UVB exposure and with a minimum SPF of 15. Look for a sunscreen that also contains zinc oxide, avobenzone or titanium dioxide to help keep your skin wrinkle free.

    Something that wasn't mentioned yet is being overweight or underweight can make you look older too. Stay in a good range and your skin will look its best.

    Re: How to look younger?

    I know a lot of ppl think drinking tons of water is necessary, but there have been a lot of studies recently that are proving that we really all get enough water from our daily food intake. Not to mention the fact that if you're dehydrated enough for it to show in your skin then you'd be pretty ill. Dry skin is caused by a lack of natural oils, not a lack of water. I drink several liters of water a day (to offset the ammt of salt I eat and to help make me feel full) and I still have dry skin.

    Here are a few sources on this issue, I know it's hard to believe because we've all been told to drink tons of water our whole lives!

    That might be a factor, as I am overweight, but I'm not too sure

    I've never had dry skin, I'm super duper oily and de to that I have big pores that weren't there a few years ago, and from the other post about me being overweight, I think all this combined is maing me look older.

    Although a few people have told me, I look like someone young who looks older for their age, if u guys understand what it means....

    Re: How to look younger?

    A well-balanced diet and frequent exercise is key. Try to eat clean 90% of the time. Eat antioxidant-rich foods. 8 glasses of water a day is not essential as we do get most of our water from the food we eat. However, make sure you are not dehydrated.

    To keep your skin looking its best, put together a simple skincare routine for yourself. Limit your time in the sun. ALWAYS wear sunscreen. Use the best sunscreen that you can tolerate and start using a retinoid. Look for an antioxidant that you can apply topically (like a Vit. C serum).

    I highly suggest a healthy lifestyle. Eat healthy and workout. Don't eat any processed foods eat clean. Be happy smile do things you enjoy and use your mind alot and when you are older if you keep those things up you will look and sound younger and not be a grumpy old person.
