Wrinkle Formation: The Causes
Even when you are just on your 20s, wrinkles start to form and though you may not yet notice it, that doesn’t mean that you can afford to stick with old habits that are detrimental to your skin.
According to experts, there are different factors that result in wrinkle formation ranging from your lifestyle habits to the foods you take in. Among them are smoking, sun damage, unhealthy diet, poor nutrition, pollution, free radicals, and genetics.
Without the right remedies to prevent wrinkle formation, you will be caught unprepared for its symptoms including deep furrows, crow’s feet, fine lines and saggy face.
What to Do?
Luckily, there are already known remedies to fight off wrinkles without merely relying on surgical procedures, botox, dermal fillers, and other cosmetic procedures. There are skin care products that deal with these problems effectively and of course, there are also safe and effective remedies that have become popular solutions as they facilitate transformation and reveal a youthful look, the natural way!
Here are some of the most popular remedies to help you fight off wrinkles, safely and naturally.
Effective Remedies to be Wrinkle-Free
Load Up with Water
Perhaps one of the simplest remedies to stop the onset of wrinkles is to drink water. Hydration is essential to keep the body healthy, but for sure you’d be more determined to drink lots of water upon realising that it can prevent the appearance of wrinkles.
Water maintains skin hydration and as it does, moisture is also retained and the formation of creases on the skin is prevented. 8 glasses a day is the minimum daily intake required, but on days when one is more active, more glasses of water is required.
Choose Wrinkle Fighting Foods
As water is essential for a wrinkle-free skin, you also have to know the right foods to choose to enhance the results. “Beauty foods” are those that contain the following elements:
● Omega-3 fatty acids
● Vitamin E and C
● Monounsaturated fat
Consume foods that are rich in these elements and you will be able to achieve a healthier and more youthful glow easily!
Did you know that cell repair happens while you sleep? This is the reason why you need to get enough sleep. You also have to know that lack of sleep triggers the release of stress hormone in the body which retards growth and causes tissue damage.
However, it’s not enough to just allot 7-8 hours of sleep a day. Your sleep posture also counts!
According to the American Academy of Dermatology, the best position to sleep is on your back as this prevents wrinkle formation. Sleeping face down is one of the causes of creases on brows, while sleeping on your side may form wrinkles on your cheek on chin.
Stress does more harm than you thought it could. It can make the skin thin and weak to become more vulnerable to the elements that cause wrinkles. Of course when you frown, the facial lines reveal marks that can end up as permanent wrinkles.
De-stress and live life beautifully! Simple activities like listening to music, meditating, reading books, developing a hobby, or simply spending quality time with the people you love can help prevent wrinkle formation!
Don’t Smoke and Stay Away from It too!
Smoking is of course dangerous for your health and it’s important to know that smoke contains free radicals too which cause body molecules to become unstable and lead to weakened body cells as membranes are damaged. This results in poor production of collagen which is essential to keep the skin wrinkle-free.
Don’t smoke and stay away from it so you can stay healthy and look more beautiful, longer!
Sun Protection is a Must!
UV rays can cause serious skin damage so it is important to avoid sun exposure during the hottest parts of the day (10am to 3pm). However on days when you can’t prevent getting exposed under the sun, there are steps that you can follow to keep your skin protected from the sun’s harmful UV rays.
● Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a minimum SPF of 25 to get protection against UVA and UVB radiation. Sunscreens with vitamin E or soy isoflavones are also preferred as they work to protect and strengthen skin barrier by facilitating collagen reproduction.
● Prevent eye wrinkles and at the same time style up by wearing sunglasses. The skin surrounding the eyes is sensitive and frequent squinting can lead to wrinkle formation.
● Use hats and scarves whenever you’re going out to ensure added protection against the sun’s damaging rays.
Aging is inevitable but you can choose to age gracefully and maintain a wrinkle-free skin through these effective and simple to follow natural, beauty remedies!
