Is there anything a person can do care and eliminate wrinkles? Well, chances are if you’re wondering about this, you probably already have wrinkles. The best way to treat wrinkles is in prevention. Even with all the preventatives there are though, wrinkles are inevitable seemingly regardless of skin type. That’s not a bad thing though – here’s why.
All wrinkles are are visible creases, folds, or ridges in the skin. As we age, they develop. Why do people have wrinkles? Common facial expressions are known to cause wrinkles, as will sun damage, smoking, general dehydration, some pharmaceutical medications, environmental factors, and genetic factors. The most wrinkles generally appear on parts of the body with the most sun exposure.
Some anti-wrinkle tips would be, first, to ensure any day you leave the house you’re wearing sunscreen. Protection against the sun is central to staving off wrinkles. If you smoke, the best thing you can do for wrinkles is quit. Also, keep yourself hydrated throughout the day. This will help minimize dehydration which can also play a role long-term in developing wrinkles. Exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light is also a concern so if you love sunbathing, tanning booths, or even outdoor sports, you’re more likely to eventually have wrinkles. This is because the UV light breaks down collagen and elastin fibres in the skin, causing it become weaker and less flexible.
There are literally billions of dollars spent every year by people all over the world on anti-aging. Treatments vary in effectiveness as well as cost. Why wrinkles are unavoidable is because as we age, our skin naturally gets thinner, drier, less elastic, and has less ability to protect itself from damage. The wrinkles, creases, and lines on the skin appear gently over time. It may seem like one day you just woke up with them but they happen very slowly and almost unnoticeably over time.
Lastly, if you don’t already have one written out, set up for yourself a weekly facial care plan complete with a moisturizer, a cleanser, and an exfoliant. The big thing here is to ensure you’re removing dead skin cells, keeping your face clean, and getting that moisturizer on. Long-term, moisturizers can help in both minimizing the appearance of wrinkles as well as in making it more difficult to eventually develop them.
