While men are lucky that their grey hair and laugh lines are often seen as a sign of them getting better with age, it doesn’t hurt to develop grooming habits that’ll help you hold onto your youthful looks. You’ll have everyone guessing how old you are for years to come.

Wear sunscreen daily

Don’t use Matthew McConnaughey as your inspiration. Even he doesn’t pull off the orangey, leathery skin off. The top thing you can do for your skin to keep from looking older is to put on SPF every day (even in the winter). Aim for an SPF of at least 30 (use a sport version if you’re participating in a sport where you sweat a lot or else you may find it stinging your eyes).

Apply a night cream

Help rejuvenate your skin while you snooze with a serum or cream that’s loaded with antioxidants, such as Kiehl’s Facial Fuel Transformer. Antioxidants fight free radicals, which are at the root of aging skin damage, such as fine lines and wrinkles.

Invest in an eye cream

Wrinkles around the eye are need speical attention. The skin in the eye are is especially thin and delicate, which is why you may notice wrinkles, dark circles and fine lines in this area before other areas of your face. Gently tap on a bit of a product such as  Lab Series for Men Max LS Instant Eye Lift onto the eye area day and night.

Get glowing skin

Even if you don’t spend a lot of time in the sun, your skin can start to look dull and leathery if you let a buildup of old skin cells develop on your skin. For a more vibrant complexion, cleansing your face with a gentle scrub, such as Clinique Skin Supplies for Men Face Scrub, will help slough off this top layer of skin cells.

Shampoo with a thinning-hair product

If you’ve noticed your hair doesn’t seem as full or lustrious as it was before, replace your usual shampoo with one that helps promote thicker looking hair while preventing further loss, such as Nioxin or Aveda Invati.
