Hate nee­dles? Here’s how to up the ante at home and re­store some radiance.

Cut back on caf­feine, which can stay in l your body for up to 12 hours and, be­cause it’s a nat­u­ral di­uretic, it can have a de­hy­drat­ing ef­fect that shows on your skin. Drink plenty of wa­ter – it re­ally does help keep skin plump. l Dry air draws the mois­ture out of skin, so turn down the heat­ing. A hu­mid­i­fier will help re­duce mois­ture loss caused by the en­vi­ron­ment or leave a bowl of wa­ter by the ra­di­a­tor. l A sup­ple­ment con­tain­ing as­tax­an­thin, a nat­u­ral an­tiox­i­dant de­rived from al­gae and other ma­rine life, can boost skin soft­ness as well as help treat age spots and wrin­kles. Fish oil and cod liver oil cap­sules may also help.
