DAILY PRACTICES TO PREVENT WRINKLES

There are many different medical options today that can treat and get rid of your unwanted wrinkles, but the most effective and ideal way to deal with wrinkles is to prevent them before they even surface. Let’s take a look at these simple things that you can incorporate into your daily routine that will help prevent wrinkles and keep your face looking healthy and fresh.

No Smoking

As we all know, smoking cigarettes takes a severe toll on our health, both internally and externally. Smoking actually causes the elastin and collagen in your skin to deteriorate, which results in your skin being less elastic and unable to produce new skin cells as effectively. This causes wrinkles and sagging skin, so prevent wrinkles by steering clear of smoking.

Stay Out of the Sun

We all love a beautiful, relaxing day in the sunshine. Unfortunately, exposing our skin to the sun’s harmful UV rays is the number one cause of wrinkles. So stay in the shade as often as you can, and cover up with hats and clothing.

Lay on the Sunscreen

When you do go out into the sunshine, however, make sure to always wear sunscreen! Wearing sunscreen is an absolute must, both for your skin’s health and appearance. Apply sunscreen generously every day to ensure your skin is protected and will continue to retain its youthful appearance.

Use a Nightly Moisturizer

Keep your skin hydrated each day by applying a moisturizer that caters to your specific skin type. When you’re considering which kind of moisturizer to buy, keep an eye out for those containing the ingredient retinol. Retinol promotes collagen production and removes dead skin cells, thus helping to prevent wrinkles. You can use this kind of moisturizer at night and in addition to your regular skin moisturizer.

Consider a Chemical Peel

Chemical peels are safe and popular non-surgical procedures that can do wonders for your skin. Essentially, chemical peels remove the top layer of your skin that is the most sun-damaged, wrinkled and unevenly pigmented. Depending on your needs and skin type, you can opt for a light, medium or deep chemical peel.

Treat Yourself to a Facial Massage

Facial massages are a great way to help you relax each day, and they also are very beneficial for your skin. When you apply your moisturizer each day, take a little bit of extra time to massage it into your face using gentle, upwardly-directed circular motions. This simple addition to your routine removes dead skin and toxins, reduces puffiness, increases blood flow and softens wrinkles.

Sleep on Your Back

You may be surprised to discover that the lines left on your face from the way that you sleep can, in time, turn into wrinkles. A simple way to remedy this is to sleep on your back to avoid sleep lines. If sleeping on your back isn’t an option, consider switching to a satin pillowcase, rather than using a cotton one. You can also opt for a beauty pillow made from a special foam that lessens the amount of pressure put on your face each night while you sleep.
