hey omg, the key is not anti aging products.. or products that 'erase the signs of aging'.. the key i think is healthy diet, good exercise, good friends, lots of laughter:) and LOTS of sunscreen. you need sunscreen to PREVENT aging. a good 'natural' one i like is clinique city block spf 15, with titanium diozide and zinc oxide.

It must prevent both UVA and UVB sunscreens

if you are in Canada a very good non oily on is:

La Roche Posay Anthelios SPF 60 'L'

it's got SPF 60 as well as the best UVA/UVB protection on the market.

I totally agree with Caroline about nixing those pseudo-anti-aging products. And I second her sunblock suggestion. Everyday I apply Clinique's SuperCity SPF 25 Sunblock, which is also comprised of titanium dioxide and zinc oxide. It doesn't make my face breakout, nor is it greasy.

I think sunscreen is bad. It is chemicals on your face. It also makes people stay in the Sun longer than they would without it which causes more skin damage. JMO.

Diet, exercise and low stress is key, IMO.

That said, genetics determines how you age for the most part. The other stuff like diet and exercise is environmental. You can do everything right, but if you have bad genes, you will age fast. Worrying about it will really kick start the aging process. Just relax and keep trying to live a healthy lifestyle and you'll be fine.
