Even if your desk isn’t situated on the beach for a nine-to-five tanning marathon, job stress alone is enough to make wrinkles squiggle their way through your forehead. Fight it! Fight it now! My personal commitment to fighting stress and wrinkles is to leave work ON TIME. Why can everyone else be out the door at 6:30, but I’m still chugging away for another hour or two? I know most employees don’t have this problem, but for my fellow workaholics out there, I’m the first to tell you it’s no good for your health or skin.

  • Keep a piece of fresh fruit at your desk for an antioxidant boost during the day.
  • Have a bottle of moisturizer on hand to apply throughout the day when your skin feels parched.
