Five Steps on How to Prevent Wrinkles
While wrinkles may be inevitable, there are ways to prevent the development of additional lines and crow's feet and methods to conceal those that already exist.
Keep exposure to the sun to a minimum. What many people perceive as signs of aging
are signs of sun damage. Try to avoid the sun from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., when the sun is at its hottest. When you go out, wear sunscreen, a hat, sunglasses, cotton-blend clothing, and shirts with long sleeves.
Always wear sunscreen. According to Dr. Sandra I. Read, an instructor of dermatology at the Georgetown University School of Medicine, you should apply sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 15 or 30. It is essential to use a sunscreen that offers broad-spectrum protection from both types of damaging rays.
Never downplay the importance of a healthy diet. The foods you eat make a profound difference in your body—both inside and out. Eat a diet rich in fruits and vegetables, whole grains, lean meats, and seafood. Also, supplement your diet with plenty of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants to improve your skin's overall appearance.
If you smoke, stop. If you don't smoke, don't start. Smoking is terrible for the skin and brings about premature wrinkling. The skin around the mouth is particularly susceptible to wrinkling, dryness, and a dull appearance due to smoking.
Use a good moisturizer for your skin, and use it faithfully. Dr. Brandt, Strivectin, and Ageless Derma are all excellent moisturizers to try. Use different moisturizers for the daytime and the nighttime. Daytime moisturizers should be lightweight and water-based. They should be applied after washing your face in the morning to lock moisture into your skin. Choose a daytime moisturizer that contains SPF.
For nighttime, choose a heavier moisturizer that protects and moisturizes your skin while you are sleeping. Be aware that changing seasons and temperatures can affect your skin's condition and that you will have to change your moisturizer accordingly. In terms of anti-aging skincare, look for moisturizers that contain glycolic acid, retinol, peptides, Sodium Hyaluronate, matrixyl 3000, and Syn-coll.
These ingredients promote the growth of collagen, which prevents wrinkles and counteracts free radicals.Liquid error (templates/article line 10): Could not find asset snippets/relatedblogs.liquid
