You Sip from Straws

Constant puckering can bring on premature wrinkling. Skip the straw and keep your pout moisturized with an anti-aging lip product like L’Oreal Colour Riche Anti-Aging Serum Lipstick. (Shown in Wined Up ($10; drugstore.com) The color is infused with a collagen serum to smooth over surface lines and create the appearance of fuller looking lips.

You Grimace at the Gym

Straining your face while lifting weights can etch fine lines on your face over time. But don’t make this your excuse to avoid the gym. Shelly Knight, veteran fitness instructor and West Coast Director of Training for workout class Physique 57 offers this advice: "Relax your forehead and eyes and leave a small space between your lips. This ensures you won’t grind your teeth when an exercise becomes challenging. Remembering to breathe inward has a calming effect targeting the neck and shoulders which takes the strain off of your face."

You Sleep on Your Stomach

Many dermatologists say they can tell how their patients sleep based on the wrinkle pattern on their faces. Using a support pillow like Therapeutica’s Sleeping Pillow ($89; theraputicainc.com) will cradle your neck and head to avoid tossing and turning—and tugging the skin on your face.

You Forgot Your Sunglasses

Squinting in the sun is a surefire way to get crow’s feet. Double-up on sun protection by wearing a concealer with SPF. Our favorite: Neutrogena Healthy Skin Brightening Eye Perfector ($14; drugstore.com) which combats puffiness and evens skin tone while protecting delicate under-eye skin with SPF25.

You Line your Lids with Eyeliner Pencils

Traditional pencil eyeliners can pull the sensitive eyelid skin and cause unnecessary creasing. One fix: cream eyeliner that you apply with a brush. We like Shiseido Accentuating Cream Eyeliner ($26; sephora.com) which glides on smoothly. No tugging necessary. Click here to watch MORE’s Beauty Director discuss these age-defying tips
