The American Society of Plastic Surgeons reported that Botox injections for males increased 312 percent from 2000 to 2012 and the New York Times declared the business of male cosmetics a "bull market." The secret is out: men care about how they look as they age. You may not be quite ready for needles or concealer but there are plenty of other things you can do look younger. Here are just a few, revealed by Dr. Cameron Rokhsar, an assistant professor of dermatology at Mt. Sinai School of Medicine.
Not Using Sunscreen
A recent study from the Annals of Internal Medicine found that over 4.5 years, people who used sunscreen daily showed 24 percent less skin aging than those who used it as they liked. "UV radiation causes the breakdown of both collagen and elastic tissue, causing wrinkling as well as [loss of] elasticity of the skin," says Rokhsar. If you think you're saving yourself by slathering on the aloe after forgetting your SPF, you're not. That is only cooling the burn, not battling the effects, says Rokhsar. So use sunscreen every day, whether you're on the beach or simply commuting to work.
