Despite concerted efforts to erase years, there are things you do every day that have the opposite effect-and you probably don't even notice you're doing them.

1. Dyeing Your Hair Blonde
Lighter hair doesn't go with all skin pigments and can age you, points out Teri Guardino, director of education at Alfaparf Milano, a hair-care brand.
