Good to know!
Let’s see how you can prevent and reduce wrinkles aka the first sign of aging skin.
8 Tips to Prevent and Reduce Wrinkles
Avoid the Sun
I’ve said it over and over again: the sun is your skin’s worst enemy. I know you love the beach, but try to resume sun exposure to the early hours in the morning. Stay in the shade after 11 am.
At the beach, on the street, even at home, whether it’s summer or winter, sunscreen is your skin’s best friend. It doesn’t just shield you from the sun, it creates a barrier against all the pollution in the air.
Smoking breaks down the skin’s natural collagen – the substance responsible for keeping your skin plump and youthful looking. Also, smokers always get deep grooves around their mouth from the repeated movement of inhaling from a cigarette.
Sleep on Your Back
When you sleep on your tummy or side, you get sleep lines. And they don’t always disappear in the morning. Sleeping on your back isn’t just good for your spine and muscles. It also uses the gravitational pull to stretch your skin and prevent and reduce wrinkles.
Wear Sunglasses and Glasses
If your vision is not 20/20, you will squint in order to see better. This causes wrinkles around your eyes. The same goes for sunglasses – use them to prevent squinting in sunlight.
Eat a Healthy and Balanced Diet
A diet that’s rich and fruits and veggies is a great way to prevent and reduce wrinkles and fine lines. Foods that are rich in antioxidants (berries, citrus fruits and leafy greens) help slow down the general process of aging and build up your collagen levels.
Drink Plenty of Water (and Less Alcohol)
Hydrate your skin from within. Water and tea (especially green and white tea) are great for wrinkle prevention. Alcohol, on the other hand, dehydrates you, so consume it as rarely as possible.
Never Skip Moisturizing Your Skin
It might be late, you might be tired, you might not feel like it, but none of these are excuses to skip the moisturizer. A dry skin is the perfect ground for wrinkles. When your skin is “well-fed” aka moisturized, wrinkles steer clear of it.
