KNOW YOUR ENEMY
There are three kinds of UV rays: the UVA, UVB and UVC. These are graded according to their wavelength. The longest wavelength rage are UVA rays and the shortest, UVC rays.
UVA wavelengths are almost harmless. The hazard is not non-existing but its highly negligible. Sunlight, when passing through ordinary glass contains UVA wavelengths. Short UVA wavelengths are those used for sun/UV tanning.
However, this form of tanning is not completely safe. It still exposes your skin to UV rays and hastens its aging. Also, around 50% of skin cancer is acquired through sun tanning.
UVA does not damage DNA directly, unlike UVB and UVC. It doesnt cause sunburn but it can penetrate deeply. UVA can produce reactive chemical intermediates which can harm the DNA such as hydroxyl and oxygen radicals. UVA rays damage the collagen fibers of your skin.
BEING OPTIMISTIC AND VIGOROUS
Having an encouraging, dynamic, and balanced approach or outlook towards your individual and collective possibilities is a healthy advantage. Not only does it provide you with better results in what you seek, it also gives your youthful energy a boost.
Optimism and vigor shape a huge part in the expansion of your emotional life. If you wish to live well and young, you will have to remove the self-defeating pessimism from your mind, and replace with a constructive attitude.
Being young is also being optimistic and vigorous, and that requires more of us than exhibiting a compelled smile and telling yourself, you can do it.
Being young is living your life at full capacity, and we can only go beyond what we think we can if we expand ourselves rather than holding yourself back, and rather than putting you forward. After all, who got blinded by looking at the brighter side of life?

AGE-DEFYING SKIN TREATMENT
While diet can be very helpful for men to look young and well-rested, men can also do this by some skin treatments that do not require a needle and a knife.
Men may try microdermabrasion. In this procedure, the surface of skin that contains astounding number of dead skin cells are removed with a vacuum suction device.
Together with a mild chemical crystal formulation, microdermabrasion aids in revitalizing the complexion, lessen ultra-fine wrinkles, help cosmetics to be absorbed more, and make skin glowing young. This 30-minute procedure results to a more evenly textured skin.
The best that you can do to combat these culprits is to wear sun block/sunscreen every day. The higher the SPF (Sun Protection Factor), the better. Experts suggest wearing sun block/ sunscreen with at least SPF 15 for everyday use.
However, if you are at the beach, or biking, or hiking, your sun block should have a minimum of SPF 30. Its like having 15 layers of skin every day or 30 layers of skin when you are heavily exposed to the sun.
