How To Prevent Wrinkles

The one thing that a lot of people worry about as they age is getting wrinkles – those fine lines on your forehead, between your brows, around your eyes and nows. Wrinkles may be cute on babies, puppies but not on us. It’s true that we cannot stop the aging process but we can minimize its effects.

So what exactly should you be doing to prevent from wrinkles forming?

1. Skin Care
You should have a defined skin care regimen beyond using soap when you shower. This include:

A. Moisturizing your skin on a daily basis – Because dry skin has a lot of creases and looks very “crepey”. Adding moisture to your skin plumps it up and smooths out the creases. Make sure to use a moisturizer that matches your skin type. The best time to moisturize is around three minutes after taking a shower.

B. Building Collagen – Three ingredients that are fantastic collagen builders: Retinoids, Glycolic Acids and products rich in Vitamin C. The first two products smooth out your skin’s texture and increase the hyaluronic acid to boost the plumpness of your skin.
Vitamin C boosts your skin’s collagen-building mechanisms and protects your skin.

C. Using Sunscreens – Exposing your skin too much to the sun can cause in damage in the form of sunburns, wrinkles and also skin cancer. Wearing sunscreen products with an SPF rating of 30 or higher with a “broad spectrum” label on the front can protect your skin from the sun’s UV rays and minimize its damage.

2. Proper Diet

To increase your skin’s cell regeneration, or its ability to replace older cells with new and younger cells, you need foods that containd flavonolds, plyphenols, vitamins and antioxidants. Berries, tomatoes, green leafy vegetables do exactly that. Foods that are rich in omega-3 fatty acids like salmon help moisturize your skin and fight inflammation. Also don’t forget to hydrate!

3. A Good Night’s Rest
When you sleep, your body starts to repair itself from the damage it sustained during the day, so make sure you get enough of it. Doctors recommend sleeping nightly for 6 to 8 hours to allow your body to fully recharge.
