A rare and lucky 10 percent of women are considered "exceptional skin agers": They look at least 10 years younger than they are, according to a new study from Olay. And why do they look so shockingly great? Researchers discovered that some share a small genetic advantage, but the more significant link is that these women have a positive attitude toward themselves (many also ranked high in activity level, sleep, sunscreen use, and overall health). "This proves that most of skin aging is in your control," says Frauke Neuser, the principal scientist for Olay.

Here's your formula for younger-looking skin: Every day apply a broad spectrum SPF 30 and remind yourself that you're beautiful. Also, reach for ingredients that essentially reverse time for your skin, like peptides, niacinamide, or DNA repair enzymes. Find them in the products shown here. (And maybe some other magic in this anti-aging chocolate bar.)
