Figure 1: It shows a beautiful lady who takes great care of her skin by following recommended tips for preventing or slowing down premature skin aging.

In my previous blog, Suffering from Premature Skin Aging, Part 1, we discussed that sun exposure, tanning bed and HEV digital blue light exposure are responsible for up to 90% of premature skin aging, which comes into many forms like sun spots, age spots, lines, wrinkles, melasma, hyperpigmentation and leather texture skin. 

In Part 2, we’ll discuss some additional (non-gene) related root causes that contribute to premature skin aging beyond sun exposure, Inflammation and hyperpigmentation, which include:

Environment – air, sun, pollutants

Your skin daily comes into direct contact with the air, sun and environmental pollutants around you, which compromise your skin barrier’s vital function. You need to daily protect your skin every morning by using an effective hyaluronic acid serum, like our Ultimate Plumping Serum, and afterwards apply an anti-aging, anti-oxidant day moisturizer sunscreen SPF 40 broad spectrum, like our Revitalizing Cream Sunscreen SPF 40. At night, to revitalize your skin during your sleep and slowly fade out sun spots, dark spots, hyperpigmentation use an effective Vitamin C and Vitamin E serum like our Luxe Concentrate Serum, and finish with an anti-aging and anti-oxidant night moisturizer like our Antarctic Regenerating Crème.


The toxins in cigarette smoke expose your skin to oxidative stress. This causes dryness, lines & wrinkles, and other signs of premature aging.


Eating a diet high in sugar (beverages, sweets, etc.), ultra-processed foods and refined carbohydrates can damage your skin over time. The Greek Mediterranean Diet is a great diet to nourish your body and skin and prolong your life expectancy. 


Exercise regularly, at least 5 days per week

Sleep habits

Sleep gives your body an opportunity to regenerate cells. Poor sleep quality is connected to increased signs of premature skin aging, and it also reduces the function of our skin barrier, protector.

Alcohol intake

Drinking alcohol excessively dehydrates your body. For the majority of people, over time, this dehydration will cause your skin to sag and lose its contour.


A chronic and stressful lifestyle can trigger inflammatory responses in your body, as well as hurt your sleep habits. Stress hormones and inflammation can age your body and prematurely age your skin. 

Tips Recommended by Dr. Mel Glamor, PhD:

Quit smoking, reduce alcohol consumption to healthy levels, find exercises and techniques to reduce stress, and sleep at least 7 hours every night, and consistently follow effective morning and night effective anti-aging skincare routines.
