What are Wrinkles?
Wrinkle are ridges or crease in the skin.
Tips to Avoid Wrinkles
- Establish a skin care routine
A good skin care routine will help your skin to retain moisture and elasticity.
- Wear sunscreen
Ultraviolet (UV) rays are harmful to the skin. Too much sun will increase the wrinkle process. Also, wear a hat.
- Avoid tanning salons
Don’t assume the tanning salon is safer than exposure to direct sunlight. You are still being exposed to UV rays, and at a higher concentration than direct sunlight.
- Stop smoking
Toxins in smoking agents cause skin damage. Research shows that smokers wrinkle at a younger age.
- Avoid weight fluctuations
Weight fluctuations causes your skin to stretch and contract. Skin loses its elasticity as you age and can’t bounce back after each fluctuation.
- Drink water
Keep your body hydrated. Drinking plenty of water will help flush out toxins.
- Eat right
Good nutrition affects the skin and can have a positive effect on preventing wrinkles.
- Wear sunglasses
Wearing sunglasses will help you squint less. Squinting creates folds around the eyes that can become permanent.
- Relax your face muscles
Grimacing, furrowing their brows, jaw clenching all contribute to facial wrinkles.
- Get a facial massage
A facial massage will help to keep elasticity in the skin and keep wrinkles and fine lines at bay. A facial massage will stimulate blood flow and circulation in the facial area. Increased blood flow stimulates the skin and helps to keep it renewed and rejuvenated.
Tips to Reduce the Appearance of Wrinkles
- Use an Anti-Wrinkle Cream or Lotion
Wrinkle creams increase the volume of tissue cells and smoothes out the wrinkle or line. But, wrinkle creams cannot eliminate deep wrinkles.
- Get a Chemical Peel
A chemical peel is a technique designed to remove the dead skin cells from the
skin's surface layer and re-stimulate the regenerative process.
Can Botox Prevent Wrinkles?
Botox cannot prevent wrinkles. Botox injections will temporarily reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
