I think antioxidants and free radicals contribute to premature aging. Antioxidants are supposed to slow it down and are found in non processed fruit vegetables and lean meats. Free radicals are supposed to speed it up. I only discovered this around 2011 but changing the habit of a lifetime is hard. But I do notice when I drink smoothies my forehead looks younger. On the other hand when I drink cola, it looks older. I have had a fizzy drink more or less every day since das got me a moped in 2002. However in recent days I'm increasing my intake of smoothies.

However I met someone years ago who was super young looking 41 yr old who looked 30 and he lived on junk food so I think genetics can override lifestyle too.

I recall my late friend Colm who died in 2013 strongly believed in the link between dermatology and diet. He tried unsuccessfully and to get me eating only unprocessed fruit and vegetables. However recently I've managed to considerably increase the unprocessed stuff but I find it tough going without fizzy drinks most i can manage is two days maybe. I have read they cause wrinkles.

Ah yes, what you put into your body makes a big difference to your appearance, fairly obvious really!

You're doing really well if you manage to go two days without cola. Keep that up and maybe after a few months try three days.

I find it frightening the amount of soda and other crap people drink.

I grew up drinking water and not much else. My parents made me drink milk but i always hated it.

Fizzy drinks and juice was something we had on birthdays and christmas and special occasions like that.

Nowadays it's become normal to drink sweetened drinks from a very young age and constantly, just yesterday saw a baby sucking down some juicy crap, that no doubt is sold as being healthy though it's basically sugared water with flavours.

When you get you to this as a baby it will be nearly impossible to not being addicted to this crap, you'll simply graduate to Cola and eventually alcohol.

Moisturising will help you skin also WB Yeats.

Perhaps give that a shot if you haven't already?

I moisturise pretty much every day since 2011.

The last while has been exciting.
I can see in the mirror I'm not as boyish as I was even say 3 or 4 years ago.

Nothing dramatic either, but there's a slow maturity creeping in my physical appearance.

Feels like I'm 'new' each time I notice a little progress here and there.

No amount of moisturiser will save your skin from a bad diet, good health comes from what you eat and drink, not what you slap on your skin.

Obviously sunscreen, moisturisers and avoiding excessive sun exposure can help a lot but they will never cancel out poor nutrition.

The smoothies work wonders though. Texture of my face looks much smoother in recent days. Forehead lines are faded. I know there is a debate on whether the processed smoothies are ok though. My experience is yes at least the Innocent Smoothies brand.

That's why I said "help also".

What type of smoothies do you make?
Fruit, veg, mixture etc?

Yes, but I just meant that when your diet is bad, moisturising or otherwise treating your skin will do little to mitigate that.

1 'Innocent' smoothie = €2.79
171 calories
0.5g fat
34.3g sugar
3g Fiber

1 Apple = 49c for a bag of 6 in Aldi
95 calories
0g fat
19g sugar
5g Fiber

Common sense would steer me towards the Apples.

That's because all the sugar in the smoothies is making you fatter. The layer of fat being deposited all along the underside of your skin is smoothing out any perceived wrinkles.
