Forget Botox. There are a number of things you can to prevent wrinkles without going under the knife.

1. Use gentle exfoliators. “An interesting attempt at DIY anti-ageing is boiling milk to release the lactic acid and then applying it for an exfoliation. It’s ineffective!”, says dermal therapist James Vivian, from Melbourne Aesthetic Health Care. “Even the use of at-home textured scrubs can be used so roughly that people can damage their skin.”


2.. Sleep on your back to reduce the etching of asymmetrical lines during sleep.


3. Avoid drinking from straws due to lines caused by the repetitive muscle movements. Smoking, well, that goes without saying.


4. Wear sunglasses to reduce damage due to UV-exposure and also due to creation of lines due to squinting.
5. Wear sunscreen, for obvious reasons.
