Your body is 60% water. One function that water serves is as a protective barrier for your skin, preventing fluid loss. Dehydrated skin makes wrinkles appear more noticeable. That's yuck, so drink up.

3. Keeping your skin hydrated.

Dry skin tends to show wrinkles more. Keep your skin moisturized to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Bonus: softness!

Face masks have all sorts of functions, from calming irritation to hydrating dry skin to treating acne. Apply as needed, but definitely at least once a week.

5. Stretching.

Stretching keeps you nice and limber so your body is less tense looking and tense feeling. It's even been shown to help you sleep if you do it right before bed.

Your posture makes a statement about your confidence and even your trustworthiness. Studies have shown that power stances even directly affect your confidence level by increasing your testosterone and lowering your cortisol levels.

7. Eating healthy.

What you put inside of your body affects how your body looks. Eating lots of fresh fruits and veggies will help keep your weight healthy and give your skin all the nutrients it needs to stay radiant.

9. Using eye cream.

The area around your eyes is most susceptible to wrinkles. Tap eye cream on gently, as this skin is very delicate and thin. Use morning and evening.
