1. Sleep On Your Back

American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) cautions that sleeping in certain
positions night after night leads to "sleep lines" -- wrinkles that
become etched into the surface of the skin and don't disappear once
you're up. Sleeping on your side increases wrinkles on cheeks and chin,
while sleeping facedown gives you a furrowed brow. To reduce wrinkle
formation, the AAD says, sleep on your back.

2. Eat More Fish -- Particularly Salmon

only is salmon (along with other cold-water fish) a great source of
protein -- one of the building blocks of great skin -- it's also an
awesome source of an essential fatty acid known as omega-3. Yale
dermatologist Nicholas Perricone, MD, tells WebMD that essential fatty
acids nourish skin and keep it plump and youthful, helping to reduce

3. Don't Squint -- Get Reading Glasses!

AAD says repetitive facial movement -- like squinting -- overworks
facial muscles, forming a groove beneath the skin's surface. This groove
eventually becomes a wrinkle. Keep those eyes wide: Wear reading
glasses if you need them. And get savvy about sunglasses, which can
protect skin around the eyes from sun damage and keep you from

4. Slather On Alpha-hydroxy Acids (AHAs)

natural fruit acids lift away the top layer of dead skin cells,
reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, particularly around
the eyes. New evidence shows that in higher concentrations, AHAs may
help stimulate collagen production.

5. Trade Coffee for Cocoa

a study published in a 2006 issue of the Journal of Nutrition,
researchers found that cocoa containing high levels of two dietary
flavonols (epicatchin and catechin) protected skin from sun damage,
improved circulation to skin cells, affected hydration, and made the
skin look and feel smoother. Delicious!

6. Don't Over-Wash Your Face

to dermatologists at the University of Maryland Medical Center, tap
water strips skin of its natural barrier oils and moisture that protect
against wrinkles. Wash them off too often, and you wash away protection.
And unless your soap contains skin-protecting moisturizers, use a
facial cleanser instead of soap.

7. Try Topical Vitamin C

at Tulane University, among others, have found that vitamin C can
increase collagen production, protect against damage from UVA and UVB
rays, correct pigmentation problems, and improve inflammatory skin
conditions. The key, however, may be the type of vitamin C used. To
date, most research points to L-ascorbic acid as the most potent for
wrinkle relief.

8. Eat More Soy

shows that soy may help protect against or heal some of the sun's
photoaging damage. One study, published in the European Journal of
Nutrition, reported that a soy-based supplement (whose ingredients also
included vitamins, fish protein, and extracts from white tea, grapeseed,
and tomato) improved the skin's structure and firmness after just six
