Ageing skin may be inevitable but the right information can help anyone look and feel younger. Despite what many people believe, it is possible to reduce the look of wrinkles by making changes that will positively affect the appearance of your skin and reduce the look of fine lines.
While some treatments need to be completed by skin professionals, there are a number of things you can do on your own to help reduce wrinkles and slow down the signs of ageing. These include:
Incorporate antioxidants into your diet because they help protect the skin from unstable molecules that may damage cells. This will help your skin look younger and more radiant so add berries, prunes, artichokes, pecans, cherries, red kidney beans and granny smith apples to your diet because these foods contain the highest antioxidant content and will help improve the appearance of your skin.
This is not an easy thing to do but it is important for your health and your skin. Cigarette smoke is known to age skin by releasing an enzyme that breaks down both collagen and elastin, two very important components of firm skin. It’s a big step but the results are worth it.
Drink lots of water
Staying hydrated makes a big difference to your skin and it is recommended that a person drink two litres of water every day, especially after exercising. If that seems like a challenge, add lemon wedges or fruit to your water to spruce it up and give it a more exciting taste. The bottom line is that you have to drink lots of water throughout the day if you want to keep wrinkles away.
Avoid the sun
While we all enjoy the warmth it provides, it’s important to remember that sun exposure is the number one cause of wrinkles and will impact your skin negatively, which is why the proper protection is a must. Avoiding the sun as much as you can will lead to fewer wrinkles and younger looking skin. If you must go out in the sun, the importance of sun protection cannot be emphasized enough because it will not only help prevent wrinkles, but will also protect you from skin cancer as well, so apply sun protection, everyday and re-apply every two hours from the end of April to the end of September..
Get a good night’s rest
Sleep is what helps your body heal and repair itself, so if you’re not sleeping for at least seven to eight hours a night, your skin may suffer because of it. Resting through the night will help your skin remain firm and thick decreasing the chances of wrinkles.
