When you contort your face, you use muscles and increase the appearance of wrinkles. Believe it or not, it’s the truth. When you feel a frown coming, give yourself a pinch to remind yourself to smile instead. In time, you will break the habit.

Use resveratrol. It has been shown that eating a low-calorie diet can slow down the aging process. Resveratrol is a compound naturally found in nuts and grapes. Resveratrol in supplements is often derived from Japanese knotweed roots (the Latin name for which is Polygonum cuspidatum or Fallopia japonica). It can also be found in the roots of Senna quinquangulata, a South American shrub.
