    Avoid heavy or regular alcohol consumption

    The side effects of alcohol drinking are less widely known than the effects of smoking, but it is just as harmful. Alcohol can cause premature aging as well as being linked with disease later in life. Alcohol also dehydrates you, which will make your skin look more dry. Alcohol can also create puffiness around your eyes the day after you drink it, and that does not create a youthful effect, either.Of course, part of looking young is feeling young and having fun. And for some people, alcohol is a fun social lubricant. So, if you like to get crazy and have a few martinis now and again, don t cut the drinking out of your life completely.
