Wrinkle Defense – How to Slow Aging

What Causes Wrinkles?

Our skin consists of two layers: the outer layer and another layer below it. Wrinkles happen in the below layer that is made up of collagen and other proteins. The collagen is the main structural protein found in skin and other connective tissues is often considered the glue that holds the body together. And it is what makes our skin elastic and smooth. As we age, our bodies produce less collagen, which results in saggy skin with wrinkles.

 

Some factors that cause the skin to wrinkle: stress, sun damage, Smoking, dehydration, pollution and toxins, and natural aging.

Methods to Avoid Wrinkles:

Avoid Stress

Facing a high level of daily stress, at home and work sometimes leads to the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Try different ways to deal with and adapt to the causes of tension because the stress hormone degrades collagen in the body, which causes wrinkles.

Stay Out of The Sun

The skin wrinkles fast if it was exposed to too much ultraviolet radiation from the sun. The sun does the same to your skin as it does to dried fruits. If you stay out in the sun for a while, make sure to use a sunblock with a high sun protection factor. And if you want to avoid the sun, make sure to take vitamin D.

Keep Away from Tanning Salons

Tanning salons will get you wrinkles fast since tanning booths produce the same ultraviolet radiation as the sun. Therefore, try to avoid going to tanning salons.

Stay Hydrated

Always stay hydrated because water will keep your skin moisturized, at the same time, it will help you detoxify your body.

Avoid Yo-Yo Dieting

Yo-yo dieting will get your skin wrinkled. When you gain weight, your skin stretches and when you lose the weight you will get wrinkles. When you keep gaining then losing weight frequently, your skin will lose its elasticity causing you to have a lot of wrinkles.

Stay in Shape

Make sure to have time to exercise. People who exercise usually have healthier and more elastic skin than people who do not exercise.

Eat Healthy

Eat healthy and make sure to have all the vitamins, minerals and antioxidants through food to maintain youthful skin. Make sure to include the important vitamins for the skin like Vitamin A, C, E, and the B-Complex. In addition, eat good saturated fats like olive oil, coconut oil, and avocado oil to keep your skin more elastic and resistant to sun damage.

Take Collagen

Take a dietary supplement of natural collagen will help you keep your skin healthy. You need to replace the collagen your body loses as you age to keep your skin elastic and smooth.

Do Not Smoke

Smoking could lead to premature wrinkling especially around the mouth. Besides that, it is very bad for your health.

Massage Your Face

Massaging your face and neck regularly increases circulation to your facial tissue. Rub your face and neck with thumbs and the palms of your hands. The massage helps to lift and firm the skin, reducing the appearance of wrinkles, and relaxing your facial muscles.

Avoid Pillow Wrinkles

Pressing your face into the pillow will get you wrinkles in the long run. Try to find a sleeping position that does not make you press your face hard into the pillow or use a medical pillow.

Use a Natural Moisturizer

The use of a moisturizer can hide small wrinkles. Use a natural moisturizer like coconut oil to avoid harmful chemicals that commercial moisturizers contain.

Use a Mild Soap

Use a mild soap to wash your face and rinse very well. There is no need to scrub your skin excessively – wash your face gently to prevent it from drying.

Say No to Lotions and Creams That Promise You Miracles

Finally, do not buy expensive lotions and creams that promise you miracles because they are misleading and usually do not work. You end up spending your money for nothing.
